LEGO has announced today that Pop-Up Book project by Jason Allemann and Grant Davis will be the next set in the LEGO Ideas line. This project was selected from a pool of 7 ideas that had gathered 10,000 supporters by January 8, 2018. The project was originally submitted to the LEGO Ideas platform on August 25, 2016, so it took the project a little more than a year to gather support of 10.000 fans. Pricing and availability for this set are yet to be announced. The LEGO Ideas Blog interviewed Jason and Grant back in April 2018, where they talked about the inspiration and the challenges they faced creating the model.
With this announcement Jason Allemann becomes the second LEGO fan to have two projects approved by the LEGO Ideas team and released as retail sets. His first masterpiece — 21305 Maze — hit store shelves in April, 2016.
The full list of projects that were considered for the next LEGO Ideas set is below

Starting today, LEGO IDEAS 21313 Ship in a Bottle is available at your local LEGO Store and the LEGO Shop online for $69.99. We predict this set will be a popular one, so we are hoping LEGO has the appropriate amount in stock to handle demand.
For larger orders of $125 or more, the promotional set 40290 60 Years of the LEGO Brick is still available from the LEGO Shop, so this is a great opportunity to get both amazing sets if you haven’t already.
A few weeks ago, LEGO announced the release of the first LEGO Ideas set in 2018, 21313 Ship in a Bottle, available at the LEGO Shop online. The successful LEGO Ideas project was originally submitted by Jake Sadovich and is a LEGO version of the classic concept of a ship in a bottle — a perfect mix of art and craftsmanship.
The set contains 962 pieces and retails for $69 (obviously with variations in other countries), which falls deep within the magic 10 cents per piece zone. However, you will need to judge the real value for yourself, as several hundred of the elements that make up the part count are sized 1×1 or 1×2, most notably the 284 1×1 round plates in translucent light blue.

When you view a LEGO model in person, you’re limited to seeing things as they appear to the naked eye. In the digital realm, especially when a healthy amount of photoshopping is involved, scale is just as ripe for manipulation and modification as anything else. With Koen‘s latest build, it’s obvious that this point is understood fully.
From the castle on the left to the massive flag in the middle, the final product here is just as much the finished photo as it is the builds on their own. That’s neat.
It’s worth noting that this creation was made for the LEGO Ideas logo contest that we wrote about recently. While it’s hard to say if LEGO Ideas would be open to adopting such a maximalist logo, this is certainly a stellar build.
Tron Legacy Light Cycle in Minifigure scale designed by BrickBros UK is the next LEGO Ideas project to become an official set next year! The announcement was made on the LEGO Ideas Facebook official feed.
The idea was selected from 11 other projects over the period of January and May 2017. A special mention was also made for Surf Rescue, and the folks at LEGO will be working on the special message to share the story behind the set designed by Damien and Aiden MacRae.
Suzuki Junya will be the designer that will be working on bringing this futuristic bike from concept to the production model that’s set to be released in 2018. Word from the excited designer is to stay tuned for the final design and launch date.
