Another LEGO House exclusive set has been announced. 4000026 LEGO House Tree of Creativity will go on sale on 1st March and will cost DKK599. The following information about it was posted on the LEGO Ambassador Network:

In the midst of LEGO House stands one of the world’s most iconic LEGO models, at over 15m tall and packed full of details and surprises even the most avid LEGO enthusiast cannot fail to be impressed by the Tree of Creativity. The tree is constructed from 6.316.611 standard LEGO bricks and took 23.500 hours to assemble to create an incredible and unique LEGO model.

And now a LEGO small scale model of this tree will be exclusively available at the LEGO Store in LEGO House, Billund.


The LEGO model is a great reproduction of the giant tree. All the most iconic features have been resized into this retail model.

The real LEGO enthusiast will know that the LEGO Group launched a Tree of Creativity model back in May 2017. That particular model was developed as the surprise gift for the participants of the LEGO Inside Tour. The product developed for Inside Tour only comes out in 175 individually numbered boxes.

Senior designer Steen Sig Andersen who originally also designed the first model was asked to do a retail version for LEGO House.

Steen Sig Andersen says:” The former Tree of Creativity box has proven to be an iconic model for the LEGO House and it makes a lot of sense to also offer a Tree of Creativity to the guests of LEGO House. But it was very important that the two models were not identical as we would not take away the originality from the Inside Tour guests in 2017”

Steen Sig Andersen’s efforts resulted in a very nice retail version which is slightly smaller than the LEGO Inside Tour model. The model is exclusively available at LEGO House in Billund and the retail price is 599 DKK. It will be a limited production run of 10,000.

The LEGO Inside Tour model, pictured below, is not for sale.

Love it! It's not like I needed another incentive to visit the Lego House, but here it is :)

Nice set. I would like to find it on [email protected]! But I understand its exclusiveness to Lego Store Billund. I find it really nice. Another good reason to prepare a trip to visit the Lego House. Do we know the part count for this one?

Understandable, marketing-wise, but regrettable it's only for Billund visitors and residents. Both the idea and the design would certainly make any Lego fan happy to build this set: it's excellent, as far as I can perceive. Let's get ready to see the set sold on ebay at ridiculous prices. I truly believe TLC should implement online sale of these special sets at least to VIP card holders.

Wow, that makes me so happy I did not go on that expensive tour and can get this set while I visit the Lego House :)

The fact that it is still limited bothers me. I definitely plan to go to the LEGO House at some point, but by that time they will be long gone sadly.

Wow that’s a real upset for Inside Tour customers, especially the scalpers. I’d be quite annoyed if I found out I could buy essentially the same set for much less.

How many Euro/Dollar is DKK599?

@shadowwarior016
I think that this one looks much smaller.

Great idea, and I think the parts and minifigs will come in useful for building creations to put on lego life and the galleries... Well the ones that are left anyway,

@legoverslinder 599 DKK converts to 80.45 Euro, 99.12 USD and 70.96 GBP.

Interesting set... but £70 for this? I think Lego is getting a bit cheeky with its prices lately... even if this is an exclusive.

@GrizBe
True, but I'll still buy it when I visit!

Why make it a limited production run, why not sell it in the Lego house for the next few years?

If you think the prices for these will be expensive, check out Bricklink for the three 4000024 sets for sale: One for just shy of $4,000 USD, another for 4K even, and one for $5,999. Those are not misprints. I almost spit out my coffee onto my keyboard.

Poor monkey fell off the tree! And many people wandered off!

Anyhoo, hope this means instructions will be made available.

@MrJackson - the 4000024 is super limited, just 175 copies, so obviously it will have hefty price. The new one is also limited but not as much. Still, this set is an advert for LEGO House, they should make it cheaper because of that.

^I know, but 4 grand???
As for the price, I suppose I agree; it's hard enough to actually get to the House to buy them in the first place for those of us not in Europe.

By in United States,

This is nice! Since it's a limited run and I have nowhere near the funds to go to Denmark I probably won't get it, but it would be nice to have.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@MrJackson, wow! 4 grand a pop!? I guess selling the set would pay for the trip lol. I too would like to see instructions made available for the original version. It would be great as a center piece to my city park. The new smaller version is nice, but not quite worth the airfair to Billund lol.

By in United States,

The minifigures are the best part about it for me.

6 millions bricks? is that the biggest Lego model ever?

QUICK!!! all aboard the inside tour train!!!

The 10,000 limit shouldn't be an issue really. 4000016 has been out for years and I picked one up in June last year at Billund Airport. Just need to plan on getting back to Billund in the next few years (although it took me 39 years to make my first visit so not sure how soon the second visit will be...)

By in United Kingdom,

As one of the few owners of 4000024 I find it somewhat disconcerting that it's (trying to be) sold at upwards of $4000, and by three people even!

There will be secretive scalpers out there but there may (if I can live in a utopian world for a minute) also be sympathetic reasons you'd put it on sale too. On my tour there was a group of a mum and 2 kids that were there courtesy of Make a Wish. They received 3 copies of the Inside Tour sets so I could certainly understand if they, for example, sold one of them and gave the proceeds to Make a Wish - particularly if it were a 4 figure sum!

I can't pretend I'm not somewhat perturbed by having an 'almost' the same set in retail to my Inside Tour set. But 1.) It's still a somewhat limited run and 2.) Now I can enjoy almost the same set by ACTUALLY BUILDING IT and not leaving it in the box! Of course, everyone else can now enjoy an approximation of it too if they visit Billund.

Given the price, those 10.000 units should last a while. Personally, I don't find it that well-executed, so I shall pass.

By in United Kingdom,

Best thing about it is the idea - I think it would be a cool centre piece for a town plan or park to break up a row of modulars. I probably will have a go at making a version of this at some point as its a fun concept

By in Germany,

I would be curious to see if any actually sell for 4K or upwards. I mean, anyone can put up a set for sale for a huge pricetag, but unless anyone is willing to buy, that price is just academic.

I mean, take the employee gift Nutcracker from last year. Early on those also saw asking prices in ridiculous regions, 500 Euro and up.
Now you can get a MISB one for about 150 Euro without any problem.
Granted, 4000024 is far more exclusive, but I would still wager to guess that none actually sell for 4K or up.

^Its the same with most items that try to gouge the price up. Just look at many of the retired sets on Ebay. Those with the massive mark up never sell and constantly get relisted, hoping they can push prices up out of greed.

All aboard the ebay train
