Mr Benn on LEGO Ideas

LEGO model of three terraced houses and a shop with Mr Been dressed in a suit and bowler hat in the foreground waving.
All of a sudden, Mr Benn appeared on LEGO Ideas

LEGO Ideas allows fans to submit their own creations which can be voted up and, if selected by LEGO, released as official LEGO sets.

A recent submission is this wonderful Mr Benn set featuring three terraced houses on Festive Road, the magical shop that transports Mr Benn on his adventures plus—as if by magic—the mysterious shopkeeper.

What would make this more iconic is littering the street with the random selection of folks that were walking and playing on the pavement, including the chap who always looked like his head was on backwards.

If you would like it to become a real set, log in and vote today.

  1. Hello, I love the Mr Benn street that you designed and built. I tried to vote for it on the Lego site but I was having trouble with that.

    Anyway, if the set gets to production I will be all over buying it but if not is there a way to get the plans and brick requirements so I can build it myself?

    Cheers

    1. Thanks for your comment Shaun. There appears to be a bit of a misunderstanding. I didn’t design this set. so I don’t have any plans for it—I would love a copy of this set myself. The LEGO Ideas site shows that it was designed by “Lego CustardKid”.
