LEGO has announced its latest approved LEGO Ideas submission — a set of eight build-able characters based on Cartoon Network’s hit animated series, “Adventure Time.” The set includes the bricks and instructions for Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Lady Rainicorn, Marceline, BMO, Gunter and the Ice King.
The “Adventure Time” set began as a Lego Ideas submission from Ludovic Piraud, a diehard fan of the “Adventure Time” series. The submission was a hit with the Lego Ideas community, garnering more than 10,000 supporters.
In an official press release Piraud had this to say “I didn’t think at first that what started as a fun little challenging pet project would receive so much support so fast, I was even afraid at some point that I would not have the time to submit the last update before the 10,000th vote hit! That was really thrilling and I started to think that I may have a chance to tell my kids one day ‘See this LEGO set? Your dad made it!’”

LEGO Ideas is the brand’s user submission portal for new LEGO set designs. An idea for a new LEGO must be submitted through the site, then go through a community voting period. If the set gains enough traction, the LEGO company then reviews it and, if approved, the set goes on to be sold in stores.
Piraud’s “Adventure Time” LEGO set will be available for purchase on January 1, 2017.
