The World’s 1st User Generated LEGO Set to go on Sale in Japan!

Been wanting to share this but couldn’t until now!  Early this week, the official announcement for the LEGO Shinkai 6500 Adventure Set finally went out from and from LEGO Japan.

We here at are all very proud of this achievement!  In a sense, this is even more impressive than the best selling MUJI bean bag sofa, as that was designed by a professional designer.  This LEGO Shinkai product wasn’t created by some LEGO professionals or even an AFOL (Adult Fans of LEGO) member, there’s actually a very interesting story behind this, the creator is actually more interested in deep sea life forms than the submarine itself!  More info will be published by my friends at Brick Journal and XL magazine soon.


Sent out a few boxes to my friends in the US and South Africa.  (Flickr picture here from Harper.  Com’on guys! Post more pictures! 🙂


Meanwhile, tweets about this unique product is blowing up in Japan!

If you live overseas and wanna get your hands on this Japan exclusive, you’ll have to try your luck at ebay or Rinkya or other auctions / individuals reseller sites.

Finally, I’m working on a super cool project with LEGO in this crowdsourcing, user innovation field… if you wanna get the latest news, (or may be even a chance to sign up for an early beta) follow me on





Just another guy trying to beat the system and be released from the Matrix
