The Magic Museum Lego set has received over 100 votes within 60 days, and as a result, has qualified for a year-long extension to reach the 10,000 votes required for approval. It’s currently sitting at 374 votes, though, so take a couple minutes to make an account, submit your vote, and share it around on social media for others to do the same..
LEGO is always releasing new sets of its iconic building bricks and minifigs (those are the little people), and they're usually based on popular movie franchises like the Marvel superhero films or Star Wars. The company also opens up suggestions to the public, however, and if an idea gets enough support, LEGO puts it into production. That's where you come in, because one of the ideas currently up for vote is a History of Magic Museum.
Look at how rad this thing is! A Chinese water torture cell! A Zig Zag Girl! I mean, come on, could this be any cooler? Here's the description from the LEGO Ideas project page:
The goal of this set is to blend two creative arts together for an enriching, entertaining and educational experience.
Fans of LEGO brick-building will be introduced to the art of magic as they embark on a journey into the colourful world of conjuring & prestidigitation in the "History of Magic Museum".
The "History of Magic Museum" is a historically accurate magic-themed three-storey building that highlights some of the greatest illusions and magicians in the history of magic.
It is highly detailed with numerous LEGO replicas of authentic magic & illusion props used by illusionists from the past to present day.
There are more than half a dozen play features and removable brick-built illusion displays.
The first floor will be the Chamber of Close-up & Stage Magic, the second floor will house a tribute to Houdini, and the top floor will feature the Hall of Illusions. The plans are remarkably detailed, including things like a portrait of Dai Vernon, and a hidden display case for a 1st Edition of “The Discoverie of Witchcraft”.
The bad news is that so far the Museum hasn't garnered much support, with just 88 supporters, a fraction of what it needs to be approved by LEGO. The good news is that there's still nearly two months to back it, so you still have time to voice your interest. Just head over to the LEGO project page, create a profile, answer a few questions about who you think this set would appeal to, and that's it! It won't cost you anything but a few minutes of your time. Let's get this approved!
