If you were hoping to hear that the Natural History Museum would be the next LEGO Ideas set to hit the store shelves, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. The brick building company has unveiled the next LEGO Ideas set, and you may be underwhelmed.
With Jurassic Park, The Goonies, and Lord of the Rings set out for whatever reason, and since we already got the LEGO Helicarrier last quarter, that left Piano, Flying Dutchman, and the Labyrinth Marble Maze as the closest contenders.
Not sure I’m excited about this announcement. The marble maze toy has been around for years, and if you look online, you can find plans to build your own in LEGO form. Personally, with the 30th anniversary of The Goonies upon us, I would have much rather seen that set get the nod. Alternately, the Natural History Museum aligns so well with the LEGO Research Institute set that flew off the shelves, that an expert set would be a huge win for LEGO.
What do you think? Are you interested in the Marble Maze?
Looking ahead to the Fall, I’m putting my money on either the Science Adventures or the Daft Punk sets.
