Great beanstalk! I was expecting Jack and the giant to be the woodcutter and Little Red Riding Hood's
doll.

I want it for the Big Bad Wolf dressed as grandma Minifig alone...

I don't get why people are praising this so much. The other Ideas projects have been much more amazing.

Well, at least I don't have to pay any more attention to it.

Can't wait. Might have to go for this one as my first ideas set.

Amazing...this is what Lego Ideas should be about!

Very clever. Not something I would buy though.

"Brick-mazing"? :p

It's awesome, so much more interesting than the 'I made a super accurate model of a thing from real life' or 'bunch of minifigures from a show/film/book I like' ideas. I want to see that beanstalk in action.

I love that they've included the "author's" as Jason and Grant. Great way to acknowledge the original designers!

By in Sweden,

Looks good to me! Funnily enough I prefer the exterior, so maybe I need to display it closed :)
But it's a cool, creative set. I've never been really interested in the original submission for some reasons, but I do like what I see here.

@TransNeonOrangeSpaceman: Comments like this about new Ideas projects are as tiresome as they are bewildering. Have you really gone your whole life without learning something as basic as "different people like different things"?

Not to mention, the issue of whether any particular Ideas set is more or less "amazing" than others is not necessarily a huge consideration for everyone, since there tend to be so few Ideas sets per year. Certainly if a person has a huge number of other sets they want to collect in any of those years and a limited budget they're going to have to be selective, but when there's no pressure like that to choose a favorite, a lot of people don't even intuitively think of them in terms of whether they're better or worse than others, just in terms of whether they like them or not.

Plus, it's not hard to like a set that defies expectations or does something unique, even if you don't like it so much that you feel a need for it in your collection. There are certainly plenty of sets I haven't wound up buying that I'd still consider amazing designs in their own right!

@iso3200, I actually just now posted a contest for alternate pop-up book stories on Brixtar, so anyone who is excited to make custom scenes and show them of to others is more than welcome to enter.

Cool concept and very well designed but I don't see it doing too good for $70

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nice Idea set but this one I will have to pass on it. I will hold out for the Ideas Flintstone set next year.

By in United States,

Be interesting to try to combine this with 40291 Creative Personalities somehow...

By in United States,

So which is thicker, this pop-up book or its instruction book? ;)

Fantastic looking what they did with the original! Slighty improved but not spoiled :)

@Aanchir
Yes, I understand your point. I just want to be completely honest and tell my own opinion also. It's just one set and if I don't like it, it shouldn't be a big problem to anyone. In fact, I have so many old sets still on my wanted list that I very willingly focus on them instead. It's a win for everyone.

@Aanchir: while I do like this set very much and am definitely going to get it, I don't get why you constantly have to lecture people who give negative feedback.

It seems as if you always feel personally attacked by those who critizise TLG. Do you work for the company? Do have any other personal investment we don't know about? If not, why not let people who dislike something utter their opinion without always jumping in and bashing them.

By in United States,

@AustinPowers: Sorry, but no, you're completely off base. This isn't at all a "how dare you criticize TLG" thing. Perhaps you haven't noticed but over the years I've had plenty of my own gripes about TLG or at least about particular LEGO products. And I'd be just as likely to push back if people were saying this sort of thing about a MOC on LEGO Ideas or even in a contest on a fan site like this one. It's one thing to have a negative personal opinion about something other people like, and another thing to act as though it's somehow strange or wrong that other people like it.

I didn't like the Disney Princess Palace Pets sets one bit, but I didn't go around acting as if it was confusing that other people might actually like them. Likewise, I have no love for Jurassic World, but it doesn't at all bother or bewilder me that other people feel differently. And even with many of the beloved LEGO themes of my childhood like Paradisa, Islanders, Aquazone, Bionicle, Knights' Kingdom II, Exo-Force, etc. I'm not afraid to call them out on the many things I feel they did poorly (whereas many other LEGO fans who have no problem criticizing today's sets aren't as quick to hold their own childhood favorites to the same level of scrutiny).

^^ I think the problem is rather that he does NOT work for them, or else we most certainly wouldn't have to suffer this incessant condescending behaviour and unprompted fits of rage.

^ Facepalm.

And? there's the Ideas set I have been waiting for. This is a marvelous set, nice looking minifigures and most importantly a great build. The book is beautiful, and the Red Riding Hood house looks great. I even like the Jack And The Bean Stock build. It's a ?nice ??micro? ?scale? build and I like it more then I was expecting. Overall I think this is easily the best Ideas set of the year (I like the SIAB, but Tron and Voltron just are not my thing) , exited to add this to my collection.??
