The concept was originally designed and submitted by long-time LEGO Ideas member, Brent Waller from Brisbane, Australia and submitted to LEGO Ideas in 2019. Some of you here may remember Brent as the Fan Designer of the LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1, which was the first LEGO Ideas branded set created.
The 1326 element set, featuring Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment, a buildable stage for the stand-up comic and a Festivus pole, inspires builders to relive the most classic moments from the series. Included are minifigures for the iconic characters of Jerry Seinfeld, George Costanza, Cosmo Kramer, Elaine Benes and Newman.
So, whether you want to re-enact the Story of Festivus, the Wallet Scene or the Fix Up, the set’s intricate props and features transport you directly back to New York in the 90s, enabling you to create your very own Show About Nothing in brick form.
Some of the instantly recognisable features include: the kitchen with buildable counter, fridge, microwave, oven and more; living room with a sofa; tables; an office; a buildable stage for stand-up comedian Jerry and a Festivus pole, collectively inspiring memories of comical moments from the show’s 180 episodes!
Talking about his idea, Brent said: “I loved Seinfeld in the 90s and recently re-watched them all. I thought it was a travesty that a LEGO Seinfeld set didn’t exist so I made an effort to resolve that and make the best rendition of Jerry's Apartment and the gang that I could. The biggest challenge was trying to cram as much detail from the show into the kitchen, all the cupboards, items in the cupboard and on the bench-tops. But I am very proud of how it turned out!” You can learn more about Brent Waller in his 10K Club Interview.
