. Completely sponge-worthy: 30 years of Seinfeld
Fans of the classic ’90s sitcom Seinfeld can now recreate some of the series’ most iconic scenes with the new LEGO® Ideas Seinfeld set from the LEGO Group. Featuring Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment, a buildable stage for the stand-up comic and a Festivus pole, the set inspires builders to relive the series’ most classic moments.
The highly anticipated set was created by LEGO fan Brent Waller of Brisbane, Australia, through his entry on the LEGO Ideas® platform, a LEGO initiative that turns new ideas dreamed up and voted for by fans into reality.
So whether you want to recreate the story of Festivus, the Wallet scene or the Fix Up, the set’s intricate props and features will transport you straight back to ’90s New York so you can brick your own Show About Nothing. .
LEGO fan designer, Brent, who co-founded a video game company, loved LEGO as a child, but was reacquainted with it as an adult. Combined with his skills as a 3D artist, he began to design his own LEGO creations – including making the Seinfeld set. About the design, Brent said: “I loved Seinfeld in the 90s and recently re-watched them all. I thought it was a travesty that there wasn’t a LEGO Seinfeld set, so I did my best to fix that and make the best rendering of Jerry’s apartment and the gang I could. The biggest challenge was to cram as much detail from the show into the kitchen, all the cabinets, items in the cupboard and on the countertops. But I’m very proud of how it has become.”
Some of the instantly recognizable features include: the kitchen with counter top, refrigerator, microwave, oven and more; living room with sofa; tables; an office; a buildable stage for stand-up comedian Jerry and a Festivus pole, together inspiring memories of comedic moments from the show’s 180 episodes!
The set includes 5 minifigures inspired by the iconic main characters and a remarkable postman from the show; Jerry Seinfeld, George Costanza, Cosmo Kramer, Elaine Benes and Newman are all included, decked out in iconic 90s outfits.
