LEGO Weekly Round Up - 24/10/22
24th October 2022
At the end of each week, we bring you a summary of the top news, stories, projects, and happenings in the LEGO world over the past seven days.
LEGO House Dinosaurs (40366)
Not a new release, but a re-release of 40366 LEGO House Dinosaurs, which was previously available in 2020. This time round it will be available to purchase on the LEGO.com in the UK, Ireland, and Denmark only. It's reported that its limited geographical release is the result of the packaging and building instructions not meeting the legal requirements for distribution in other countries. This re-release is only available until stocks last, but currently you can still pick it up.
10K Ideas Projects
A project based on the TV show Community has reached 10,000 supporters. The build depicts a classroom from the show's central location, Greendale Community College. The project's designer is Bulldoozer who has already seen one of his projects make it to production, having been the creator of 123 Sesame Street. This project also has a good chance of being successful, as LEGO is on a run of producing sitcom related sets.
The NeverEnding Story (40th Anniversary)
The second project to make it to the third and final review round of 2022, was The NeverEnding Story, based on the 1980's fantasy movie. You can read more about it here.

Red Bull Racing F1 Team RB18 1:12 Scale
Every week we bring you a LEGO Ideas project that has caught our eye. This week we spotted this incredible replica of Red Bull's Championship winning F1 car. Earlier this year, we had a Technic McLaren F1 Car, but achieving just as good a model in a LEGO system build is arguably more impressive. The project uses 1,180 pieces and features working steering, DRS, and removable front wing, engine cover, and headrest system.

Every month we highlight a large-scale project in the LEGO world that has caught our attention. This month it's one man's mission to recreate the giant Discworld city of Ankh-Morpork. The crazy city is central to Terry Pratchett's series of books and it's a place of which he claims “Poets have tried to describe Ankh-Morpork. They have failed”. Therefore, recreating it in brick form is a tricky task, but maybe the medium of LEGO is more suitable than that of words. The project's website contains free downloads for building BrickHeadz of popular Discworld characters and the project's Instagram provides regular updates on builds of some of the city's major buildings.
