Introducing LEGO® Ideas 21335 Motorized Lighthouse set submitted to LEGO Ideas by Sandro Quattrini (aka Roses Must Build on LEGO Ideas) in 2020. The Lighthouse was inspired by Sandro's passion for building tall structures but also a nudge from his mother who asked him to build a lighthouse.
You can learn more about Sandro and his reasons for creating this beautiful lighthouse in his 10K Club Interview.
Towering in height at 50cm tall, the Motorized Lighthouse is a unique way to add a new display piece to your home as it comes complete with a motorized light.
Full of details, the 2,065 piece set is designed authentically to mirror how a real lighthouse operates. It sits on its own island, with a staircase leading up to the lightkeeper’s cottage, plus two minifigures and their boat also add detail to the display. The lighthouse model features a revolving lens (created using a new element) powered by PowerUp components - battery box, motor and LED light with a cable.
The Motorized Lighthouse is available from the 1st of September via both LEGO Brand Retail shops and LEGO.com/shop. The recommended retail price is US $299.99 – CA $379.99 – DE €299.99 – UK £264.99 – FR €299.99 – DK 2299DKK (*EURO pricing varies by country. For regional prices please visit LEGO.com/shop).
Hear from the Fan Designer
Sandro, who is currently studying animation, was inspired to design the lighthouse by a childhood trip. “My mother loves lighthouses, and she has been telling me to build one for years,” said Sandro talking about the design. “We once took a trip around the Gaspé Peninsula, a region of the province of Quebec, which is host to lighthouses of all shapes and sizes. We visited enormous stone lighthouses on rocky beaches and small, abandoned wooden lighthouses hidden behind the trees. I guess these structures have always been in some corner of my mind since that trip many years ago and for this project I wanted to capture that towering essence of tall lighthouses, while also keeping with their solitary nature.”
Talking about the design and why it was selected, Global Marketing Vice President, Federico Begher, said, “Sandro’s design really evokes the solitary role of the lighthouse and the motorized light adds a beautiful dimension to the set. I love the attention to detail with the lightkeeper’s cottage and the boat. It’s a really exciting and challenging build that creates a fantastic display piece.”
Sandro's Motorized Lighthouse set was turned into an official LEGO Ideas set by LEGO Model Designer Luka Kapeter, as well as Graphic Designer Claus Madsen.
