Not a lot of movies from the early 1990s have stuck around as household names, but surely one of the oddest is that childhood classic from 1990, Home Alone. It has found its quirky, lovable place among our holiday favorites, and today, LEGO is revealing that the newest Ideas set is based on the film. 21330 Home Alone House features the quiet suburban McCallister house that Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) has rigged with all manner of booby traps for the would-be burglars. The LEGO set has a full interior thanks to its 3,957 pieces, making it the biggest product to date based on a fan design from the crowd-sourcing platform Ideas. The original Ideas project was created by fan Alex Storozhuk, whose Home Alone project reached the requisite 10k votes back in December of 2019, and was approved by LEGO to become a set in June of 2020. The new set will retail for US $249.99 | CAN $349.99 | UK £229.99 and will be available starting Nov. 1.

The set includes the full McAllister house, along with Kevin’s treehouse.
Unlike a lot of LEGO sets, the house is not a facade but features exterior walls on all four sides.
However, the front walls swing open to allow access to the interior.
Additionally, the roof and floors can be removed to see even more of the interior.
Many of Kevin’s most famous booby traps are included, from the hot swinging iron to the spiders, and even the doggy door sniping thanks to a new door element.
The set includes five minifigures: Kevin, Harry, Marv, Kate and old man Marley.
Finally, the Home Alone House also includes the burglar’s Oh-Kay Plumbing & Heating van.
LEGO is also running a promotion with the set in some markets, where fans can hunt for a Kevin minifigure hidden in some LEGO stores and on the LEGO website. Finding Kevin will net an entry to a drawing with a prize of getting the new Home Alone House set, plus a $1,000 LEGO gift card. See the full details in LEGO’s press release below:
