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.
