The rise in the popularity of Lego over recent years has been helped along by imaginative sets for kids and a brilliant selection of Lego kits for adults.

But if you ever wanted to see a Lego kit based on something you love but doesn’t exist yet, did you know you can either design your own or support a creator who’s got similar ideas to you?

The Lego Ideas website is crammed with cool prototypes just waiting to be made reality, including Queen at Live Aid, a Metallica Worldwired concert kit, a Pink Floyd stage set inspired by their Animals album, Red Hot Chili Peppers Brickheadz figures and Muddy Waters And His Blues Band.

Lego explain: “Come up with an awesome idea and become a Lego fan designer. Product ideas take a long time to develop, you'll have to promote your project and only the very best will win the hearts - and votes - of Lego fans, but the incredible prize of seeing your creation become a real Lego set makes all that effort worthwhile.”

Product ideas can either be created using existing Lego bricks or software. Once a prototype is accepted by Lego, it’ll appear on the website where people can place their votes. Lego also have regular challenges where creators have to design kits in a specific category such as Exploring The World Of Middle Earth. The recent 50 Years Of Dungeons & Dragons competition resulted in some amazing designs.

So if you’ve been waiting forever for a spectacular Lego Rammstein set design or Slipknot Brickheadz figures, it could be time to put your thoughts into action and create your own.
