The LEGO Ideas blog have given us our first official look at the upcoming LEGO Ideas set – 21308 Adventure Time and it looks pretty damn awesome!
We’re still quite far off from the official launch date of the set, which has been earmarked as 1 January 2017 but it’s great that we get an early look at the set. 21308 Adventure Time will cost US$49.99 in the United States, so I would expect it to cost AU$69.99 in Australia.
I really like that we seem to be getting a whole load of printed elements which is very, very nice of LEGO. I had initially been quite fearful that we’d only get stickers, but now that the official photos have been released, it definitely looks like they’re all printed elements.
The set weighs in at 458 bricks, so it should provide a decent amount of fun.
I love the entire look – they’ve nailed most of the character designs quite well except for maybe Jake which looks kinda weird and rigid. As a whole, 21308 Adventure Time looks like it’s shaping up to be a great display set with some playable elements built into it.
Definitely can’t wait for this one, and it has shot all the way up on my Most Wanted List.
What do you think of 21308 Adventure Time now that you’ve seen the official photos? Love it, hate it? Let me know in the comments section!
I would have preferred a set with the Dimensions minifigs.
I wonder why they didn’t include Lumpy Space Princess?
Hopefully it sells well and encourages LEGO to pump out CN-themed sets. I really want their treehouse which didn’t get approved previously.
I guess they considered LSP to be a side/minor character.
Isn’t Marceline kind of one too?
Ah, screw it, we get these guys in LEGO. That’s what matters.
Great observation. It’s also the same head as Owen from Jurassic World!
…? Someone looks like Owen/Chris Pratt? Who the heck you talking about, man?
Sorry, I think I replied to the wrong person! ?
Well, we’re getting a Marceline minifig, so I think we’re all good 🙂
I guess I’m lost. I don’t know what this set is referencing so it doesn’t make sense to me.
The set is based on the cartoon Adventure Time. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventure_Time
Yeah, it was a fairly popular Cartoon Network show that also appealed to adults. Definitely a very narrow target audience with this one.
I’m with Icepacklady – this will lack the mass appeal of some of the other Ideas sets like Ghostbusters Ecto-1, which is still my favourite
Yeah, but I think that there’s quite a massive community of Adventure Time fans to sustain it. Definitely not as iconic but I’m glad LEGO is taking risks with the Ideas sets!
Not initially inspiring to be honest. Couple of pieces that catch the eye, black sausage arms and snowflake hands but needs more to entice me.
Yeah if you’re looking at this set purely for parts, there’s probably not a lot of good ones. The printed tiles are pretty cool tho
I’m not a great fan of this – though the dog and penguin look good.
*coughs* Jake and Gunther, in that order *cough*
Well it’s tied to a license, so I’m guessing it mostly appeals to fans of the show. I have very fond memories of the cartoon, so I’m exactly their target audience!
