LEGO Ideas is a pretty cool branch of the LEGO brand, allowing fans to quite literally pitch their own LEGO concepts directly to the company. Essentially, the platform encourages you to upload images and details of your creations, which will be forwarded to the desks of the folks in charge IF you can get 10,000 upvotes on your idea.
From there, well, it’s possible that your creation *could* become reality.
One of the coolest concepts on there at the moment comes courtesy of “afol777,” who has pitched a set depicting the “Addams Family” mansion from the original TV series. This is actually the LEGO-head’s second attempt at getting the company to produce the set; the first received 10,000 votes, but exceeded the LEGO Ideas parts limit.
The artist explains, “After my original 2016 LEGO Addams Family Mansion received such great IDEAS fan support (10,000 votes!), I have created a Modular version keeping under the 3,000 part IDEAS limit. Although some reduction in detail was inevitable as the original had over 7,000 parts, the Mansion remains in its full glory.”
