Universe was a massively multiplayer online (MMO) game that came out
in 2010, and quickly became one of the most loved LEGO games by
players and LEGO fans around the world. The game had many layers:
imaginative worlds to explore, enemies to fight, quests to do, and
items to collect (standard MMO stuff), but also minigames with
customised vehicles, and a unique personal property system where
players could build their own models and make them come to life. A
remember seeing the epic trailers leading up to the release (as a
teen), and being blown away by the sheer diversity of the game. I
have always been more builder than gamer, so I spent more time
drooling over the stunning wallpapers of the different worlds and the
many all-original minifigure designs than actually playing. Unlike
some players, I was not devastated by the closing of the game, but I
felt dissatisfied that LU left only two little physical sets, while I
had hoped for a whole wave... Five years ago, after yet another
nostalgia plunge into the LU fandom wiki, I decided to take matters
into my own hands and started designing a set that would do justice
to LEGO Universe. I hope you like the result!
thanks to Umbra-Manis for supporting me and providing feedback the
am very grateful for the incredibly devoted contributors of the LU
wiki. I could not have made this project without the information that
they gathered and archived!
my deep respect to all the talented people out there that poured
their hearts and souls into the creation of the game, and their
empathy towards the player community following the shut down. The
behind the scenes insights these people shared really shaped a
proactive and passionate and lasting LU fanbase. You are amazing,
