First sighting of LEGO IKEA collab – BYGGLEK

After the IKEA-LEGO collab announcement two years ago, we finally get a glimpse of the finished product, called LEGO BYGGLEK.

An IKEA store in Germany was too excited about the beloved brick range and went to launch early. However, after displaying the products over the weekend, they were promptly removed from the shelves.

No one knows for sure but rumour has it the official launch will be circa August to October 2020. And we’ll keep you updated when we get official news.

What’s IKEA BYGGLEK?

Fortunately for us, they were on display long enough for LEGO fans to snap up some photos. Photos have been cropping up in many LEGO fan sites.

As of now, we know the range consist of 4 items. They are listed below with their tentative prices.

  • Large box: 35 x 26 x 12 cm – 14.99 euros
  • Medium box: 26 x 18 x 12 cm – 12.99 euros
  • Small box x 3: 1 box at 17 x 6 cm and 2 boxes 13 x 6 cm – 9.99 euros
  • LEGO 40357 BYGGLEK brick box: 201 pieces – 14.99 euros

The large BYGGLEK box measures 35cm x 26cm x 12cm. The removable lid features a stud area while the sides have a small cut-out studded area.

Presumably, the box doubles as brick storage. I wished the boxes came with dividers for better sorting. Perhaps, an accessory later on?

The medium and small boxes feature the same design with only difference in sizes. They appear stackable.

The last item is a parts pack that contains a selection of parts and two minifigures.

IKEA describes the BYGGLEK range as, “This is not just a simple box with a lid – this is a treasure chest full of tempting game ideas; a house that you can furnish; a staircase, a kit for creative people. And much more if you want.”
