LEGO World Builder Acquires 1st Fan-made World

You may remember back in August the LEGO Group and Tongal announced a new platform called LEGO® World Builder. In basic terms, it’s a LEGO Ideas-type for fans to submit concepts for stories, themes and other such LEGO themes projects. As well as letting fans submit their own creation, every so often a loose theme is suggested. Now it’s been announced that the first fan-made world has been acquired via the platform. Holiday Heroes is the creation of Eddy Beals and will now be further developed the LEGO Group. You can learn more here.

LEGO World Builder Holiday Heroes

Holiday Heroes is officially the FIRST fan-made world on LEGO World Builder to be acquired for development by the LEGO Group! Created by Canadian AFOL, Eddy Beals, this world is a globe-trotting adventure inspired by his passion for exploring different cultures. Just weeks after Holiday Heroes was published, the LEGO Group took note and Eddy was invited to pitch his original world directly to their development team – and boy, did he impress!

  1. I was part of the Beta testing for this platform. Whilst it held a lot of promise, I found that, in reality, it contained very little in the way of new content and, during testing, seemed to be just a place where the same-old-same-old ideas were being proposed. Also, despite it being touted as a platform for new ideas, it didn’t take TLG long before they were suggesting creative prompts, such as the Ninjago tenth anniversary.

    But, despite my misgivings, I think this first project is rather interesting and, given our current loss of movement, a great way for all ages to explore the planet. I for one look forward to seeing how this project develops.
