Lego is set to begin selling five limited-edition, fan-designed sets on Wednesday, February 7th, at 11AM ET. These sets were the result of a BrickLink Designer Program contest where fans created the Lego sets themselves, and they will receive 5 percent of the proceeds. The sets range from a $380 Mountain Fortress to a $50 Snack Shack and a $320 Parisian Street featuring timeless Haussmann architecture, all of which are sure to appeal to diehard fans of adult-grade Lego.
The contest garnered some really cool builds that are sure to captivate Lego enthusiasts, with options such as the Mountain Fortress, Snack Shack, and Parisian Street. These sets will be available for purchase beginning on February 7th, and it’s expected that they will ship in July 2024, though actual dates and shipping times may vary. Additionally, Lego will be producing more of these fan-designed sets than ever before, with a limit of 30,000 copies. While this may result in fewer collectors’ items, it also means fewer scalpers and opens the potential for the fan designers to earn royalties of around half a million dollars. Imagine that!
