The last Inside Tour for the summer season has just ended so we can now reveal this year's set.

It's a model of the LEGO House's Tree of Creativity, designed by Stig Steen Andersen who can be seen with the model after the break.

The set includes six minifigs and a baby: Thomas and Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, a unique LEGO House figure and 3 generic ones.

Superb set! I hope they will offer some variant for sale at the LEGO House once it's officially open.

A really nice looking set. Would love to get this myself some day, either the parts to build it or something similar at the LEGO House.

Yes, Lego baby and selfie stick included! While the build isn't very unique, it would be a great gift to get. The simple, brick built tree is actually perfect, i think it's supposed be a bit blocky.

Cool idea to build with the kids - the parts look easy to source.

Hopefully Lego will put the instruction on their website for download.

Ugh, another selfie stick! Otherwise, awesome set!

Indeed this was a pleasant surprise to our group. Some additional info:
-The base of the tree is constructed of technic elements which makes for a sturdy base (you can pick the tree up by the crane)
-4 exclusive prints including 3 torsos and 1 printed space brick
-And for anyone hoping to get one off eBay: a photo of the inside group was posted on the box itself which definitely deters me from selling mine. :)

Overall I thought this was an incredible model; but maybe it's because It's the one I get to take home to the USA with me.

Is this the biggest official LEGO tree they've released?

That's a lovely set.

Such a cool set and wonderful concept, both for the original super awe inspiring creation and this scaled down one. I'd love to get my greedy for Lego hands on this but there's no way we can afford an Inside Tour, or what the ebay going rate will be. I might try to moc something similar though, and appreciate the creative idea. Btw, how can anyone say "nothing special?!" It's a beautiful build and there's only 80 in the world, which by definition makes it "pretty darn special!"

It is actually closer to 400 copies. There are 80 copies for each tour. It is considered unique because each tour has a unique box with the groups picture on it.

That being said 400 is still a low number.

I wish this was an official set more readily available to the public. I really like it as well as the one its modelled after.

Forget all the extra bits and pieces, that's just a really gorgeous tree. That'd look great in a park in the centre of Lego City.

Hello,
Sorry, I don´t like, very simple, very comun.

Well that's ruined the surprise for people on the tour in October :D

Really like this set and would love to have one, I guess it's goin to be about £40 as I didn't see a price above?

Lovely set! The tree reminds me of the brick built tree we received in the 2015 LIT (ours was smaller of course) - which was very fun to build.

I'm always surprised how many people are willing to pay 2000$ for the tour. I really love the idea of the tour and the sets etc, but that seems so expensive... Still, a great set!

I was in the room when this picture was taken today and the set is very well done. It is very detailed and is a nice representation of the actual tree we did get to see today in the Lego House. The technic internals of the tree help to make it very solid and stable. I can't wait to get home from Billand and build it.

I can't disagree with the comment of the tour being expensive. I would say everything in Denmark is costly so I think that is certainly part of it. For a once in a lifetime experience I would say it was worth the cost.

For anyone that gets a chance to go to the new Lego House when it opens at the end of Sept. I would certainly say GO FOR IT. I wish more of the installations were done, but what was there was awesome!!!

Yes...It certainly is a selfie stick..

Charming and whimsical. Some of the previous sets were better, but this is still pretty cute.

As for the inside tour, I get that it is a ~once in a lifetime~ experience, but for that amount of money, I just don't see the value.

Re: cost of the tour, depending on your Lego budget, the significant discount at the employee shop can nearly offset the cost of the tour...

They should really release the instructions online. This is a terrific set.

"Re: cost of the tour, depending on your Lego budget, the significant discount at the employee shop can nearly offset the cost of the tour..."

I read somewhere that the discount is 50% off the Danish prices - ANY limits on what you are allowed to buy?

Oh, now that is lovely. :)

Hi everyone~ I attended the first tour and I absolutely loved everything!

The tour was fun and informative at the same time. All the LEGO people were great hosts, they were super friendly and helpful. We saw smiling faces on everyone in Billund. The experience was unparalleled and definitely a dream come true. I am missing everyone and everything there.

Just a correction on the number of unique pieces - the LEGO House torso is going to appear somewhere else, so there are 3 unique pieces in this set.

One more thing... the first person on the right in the photo is Michael (sorry that I didn't catch his last name), designer of the building instructions of the set.

As far as I know there is no limit on purchases in the employee shop other than no more than 2 of a single set. Most people on the tour were limited because they were travelling by air and the shipping costs would be prohibitively expensive (one box is shipped for free by Lego - I was able to fit a Ghostbusters Firehouse and Assembly Square in the box, plus some polybags stuffed in).

This tree is so significant that it moves my heart! What a lovely, meaningful LIT gift. Billund is definitely worth a visit, and if you can swing the LIT, go for it. It is much more worthwhile than a similar visit to a Disney park, which would cost as much or more. And this year really is special with the LEGO House opening and so many new builds. As stated above, everything in Denmark is expensive for most foreigners, so just ignore the prices and have the time of your life!l If you are a poor teacher like many of us, go with a LUG or Eurobricks meeting every other year in the spring, which I did in 2014. Visiting Billund is akin to a religious pilgrimage for many AFOL's. Go for it!
