I was just admiring some of the submissions on LEGO Ideas. One submission caught my eyes. Then another and another… God damn it. They are all too brilliant! So, here it is, my list of 10 LEGO Ideas submissions that I think are worthy of a vote.

These ten LEGO Ideas proposed set are no ordinary sets, btw; each has at least one highlight. Anyways, let’s get on with the list…

LEGO MOC Mr. Bean by InterBrick

What’s the set about:
Remember the hilarious scene where Mr. Bean transports a couch he bought from a sale on the roof of his classic Mini? Well, this proposed LEGO Ideas set, simply called Mr. Bean, recreates the scene.

The set is complete with a minifig scale 1977 British Leyland Mini 1000 (seen in the show in Austin Citron Green with matte black hood) with the number plate SLW 287R, the requisite single-seater couch, a Mr. Bean minifigure, a brush/mop hybrid acceleration/brake control, a steering contraption, and a diorama of a street with sidewalk, bench, and lamppost.
Highlight: Mr. Bean alone with his iconic green with black hood mini, of course!
Estimate number of pieces: 411 pieces
Creator: InterBrick

Fun fact: Austin Citron Green Mini was Bean’s second Mini. The first was an orange 1969 BMC Mini MK II with an RNT 996H number plate that was crashed (off-screen) at the end of the first episode.

LEGO MOC KOALA by legotruman

What’s the set about:
Well, it is a sculpture of a Koala. No, wait. It is a sculpture of a koala mom and a baby koala – complete with a part of the tree. The brick-built koala is posable with movable head, arms, hands, and feet. The baby koala has limited movement with moving head and arms.
Highlight: Animal can be separated from the tree and the baby koala can be removed from the koala mom’s back.
Estimate number of pieces: Unknown
Creator: legotruman (creator of Vincent van Gogh The Starry Night set and the brick-built astronaut).

LEGO MOC The Meeting Point by Lepralego

What’s the set about:
It is an architecture that mixes the old and the new which makes it a worthy addition to some of LEGO’s existing architecture sets. How the glass structure is seamlessly integrated into the set with varying depths made the set look very much alive.

The Meeting Point somehow reminds me of the General Post Office in D.C. The GPO also mixes old and new, except that The Meeting Point is a train station and the GPO was, well, a Post Office.
Highlight: Glass structure and lively representation of bustling, renewed old train station.
Estimate number of pieces: approximately 2,850
Creator: Lepralego

LEGO MOC Pirate Tavern by Revan New

What’s the set about:
After having a ship to plunder other ships and a bay to unload those loots, these pirates need a place to down a few pints of ale and pick up a fight. Hence, a tavern. But not just any tavern, my friend. It, of course, has to be a tavern on Tortuga, the infamous pirate island of the Caribbean.

This lovely take of a pirate tavern extends beyond the traditional single or double story structure; it has a good 3 story tall and sports a lovely combination of tattered, grunge, and steampunk look.

A perfect companion to LEGO Ideas 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay and The Pirate Bay, IMHO.
Highlights: Steampunk elements, i.e. cogs and gears, turns this building into a “functional” building.
Estimate number of pieces: Unknown
Creator: Revan New

LEGO MOC Aladdin: Friend Like Me by Lud985

What’s the set about:
The original Disney’s Aladdin animation will turn 30 next year and this set, created by Lud985, celebrates that. There are many memorable scenes, but nothing quite like the musical bit, Friend Like Me, which this set proposed to immortalized in LEGO.

The set is a part kinetic set with the upper part of the center stage that is rotatable. Along with a few sub-circular elements that turn in different directions and speeds, create an illusion of a dance scene as seen in the Friend Like Me musical portion.
Highlights: Kinetic elements, giant-ass Genie with posable hands and moving mouth! What more should I say?
Estimate number of pieces: 1,580
Creator: Lud985

LEGO MOC Motorized Johnny 5 by RJ BrickBuilds

What’s the set about:
This set lets sci-fi and robotic enthusiasts build the iconic, good-hearted robot from the 1986’s movie, Short Circuit, and its 1988 sequel. The fact that this proposed set looks so much like the on-screen Johnny 5 makes this set worthy of support.
Highlights: Well, it is the robot Johnny 5 from the 80s sci-fi flick, Short Circuit, and motorized. What more highlights do we need? None.
Estimate number of pieces: 2,711
Creator: RJ BrickBuilds

LEGO MOC A Woolly Mammoth Tribute by Ropnoj

What’s the set about:
This proposed LEGO Ideas set lets you recreate the extinct Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) that live during the Pleistocene. Simple yet scientifically elegant. Not sure how accurate the skeletal structure is, but who the hell cares? It looks super cool, doesn’t it?
Highlights: Separate, removable skeletal structure to let you display the majestic, extinct creature in two forms.
Estimate number of pieces: Unknown
Creator: Ropnoj

LEGO MOC V-X VERA by noblebun

What’s the set about:
It is a gorgeous-looking, fictional spaceship with a good backstory. So what’s not to love? V-X Vera is the creator’s imagination of a machine that humans of the future will use to travel through space. The set blurs the line between a LEGO set and a non-LEGO model. And yes, it is a LEGO model.
Highlights: SNOT (Studs Not On Top) build and a sci-fi spaceship? Sign me up for one! Note: according to its creator, this set was “designed according to a refined iteration SNOT” which he referred to as NOSE (Not One Stud Exposed). Clever.
Estimate number of pieces: 2,886
Creator: noblebun

LEGO MOC Living On The Edge by Ralf Ranghaal

What’s the set about:
It is a medieval tower building that is designed to sit at the edge of a flat surface such as a table. I don’t believe this medieval architecture has any reference to any buildings, fictional or otherwise. It is super cool nonetheless. Even more lovely is, it has interior details too and a back that was intentionally left open for playability.
Highlights: The set leverage on the edge of a flat surface, such as a table, integrating it (the table) as part of the display. It is a super cool concept which I believe not many people have pitched.
Estimate number of pieces: Unknown
Creator: Ralf Ranghaal

LEGO MOC Motorized Howl’s Moving Castle by ericlego321

What’s the set about:
This set is a 1:100 LEGO interpretation of the castle with legs from 2004’s steampunk movie Howl’s Moving Castle. With about 2,000 pieces, it is loaded with details, from the gigantic triple turrets to the mysterious rear door to the micro-city.
Highlights: It’s the freaking magical castle that walks straight out of the popular anime film Howl’s Moving Castle and it is a motorized kinetic built. This means, it actually WALKS. In addition, as it walks, it also triggers the movement of the mouth, tongue, chimney, and various body panels. Lovely!
Estimate number of pieces: about 2,000
Creator: ericlego321

So, there you have it. The ten LEGO Ideas submissions we hope will make it to the review panels. My personal favorites got to be the Motorized Howl’s Moving Castle and Mr. Bean set. What is or are yours? Let us known in the comment section below.
