The Latest LEGO Ideas Set Is A Gaming Classic

The Latest LEGO Ideas Set Is A Gaming Classic

I swear every house I visited while growing up in the late '70s, early '80s had a wooden Labyrinth Marble Maze game. Thanks to the LEGO Ideas program and creator JK Brickworks, it will be making a comeback later this year.

Rather than moving the marble through the maze, the classic Labyrinth Marble Maze features a pair of knobs that tilt the entire game board up and down, left and right, guiding its spherical passenger along twisting corridors.

JK Brickworks' version, which achieved 10,000 supporters on the LEGO Ideas website and just beat out projects like a 30th anniversary Goonies pirate ship in the competition to become an official LEGO product, allowed players to change up the corridors in the mazes using the power of pegs and plastic.

That's not the final version LEGO will be releasing, but I can't see the company improving much on JK's design. It's just perfect.

As for the other projects in this latest round of evaluation, they're all dead now, save for one.

Nosmigon's F7A Hornet, a model based on the upcoming space sim/first-person shooter/whatever else Star Citizen is still under consideration by the board, which in my experience means they're still ironing out licensing. Expect a final word on this project in the coming months.

Check out the video for the third LEGO Ideas approval round of 2014 below for a peek at the sets being considered for the next official sets, including projects from Frozen, Golden Girls and The Legend of Zelda.

    I really dont understand why the whole article wasnt about the fact that we could possibly be getting a Golden Girls Lego set.

    Oh god i want that Hornet so bad!

      They should just make an sc range. I know its no porsche, but I would love a Cutlass or maybe Vanguard.

        I'd have to live out of a cardboard box to be able to afford them all... But damn if it wouldn't be worth it!!! :P
        There has been a pitch for a 325a and the Scythe as well i believe, but don't think it got approved.

    This beat the Pirate Ship from the Goonies? :(

      the hype for sc is real.

        I backed SC. I have no idea how everyone is this hyped without even a solid alpha having been released...

    That maze is neat but the hortnet, and dutchman were great too
