LEGO Ideas allows users to submit their own designs that are then voted on by fans. When a design reaches 10,000 votes LEGO then considers making it an official set. Will that happen with the Addams Family Mansion?
The mansion, which looks fantastic will have a long way to go for it to achieve set status. First it would have to go through a licensing approval process, which may not be that big of a deal considering it’s money in the pocket of the license holders. The next big hurdle will be the 7,000 pieces needed to build the mansion in its full glory.
Here’s rundown of what is in the build:
- 3 floor Mansion, each floor is a removable segment
- Sits on two 15”x10” base plates (for a total of 3,072 studs)
- The Mansion separates into two halves through the center
- A full glass greenhouse out back
- All original Lego pieces with no modifications
- All floors are covered in tiles and “carpet” tiles
- All ceilings are covered in inverted tiles
- The Mansion is 22” high
- The entire build is comprised of 7,200 pieces
Look for these special characters and details:
- Tish relaxing in her large rattan chair, with her black fan
- Gomez practicing fencing in the living room
- Lurch and his harpsichord
- Beware of Thing…delivering mail from his table
- Cleopatra, the meat eating plant and others in the greenhouse
- Kitty Kat the lion, by the grand staircase
- The tall stuffed polar bear watching over all the proceedings
- The NYSE stock market ticker tape machine
- Call for Lurch… with a black rope noose butler bell call
- Suit of Armor – who is hiding inside?
- Massive fireplace, with a moose head on the mantle
- Have a rest on the bed of nails!
- Grandmama and Uncle Fester with his light bulb and dynamite
- Cigar Store Indian watching over Pugsley and Wednesday
- Back upper porch, with cannon, cannon balls and a catapult
- Backyard cemetery, with unknown inhabitants
- Attic spider web
- Family automobile
- Special guests include bats, owls, spiders, snakes, and parrots
Considering the Wayne Manor and X-Mansion LEGO Ideas sets never made it through the final cut, I’d be very surprised if we saw this offered anytime soon.
