Bionicle taking out the number one spot in the fan vote created a massive conversation in the LEGO community, with outrage that this theme would top the list, while Castle got split into multiple categories. Read more about it here. In a twist that no one saw coming, LEGO has decided to make the Top 3, now a Top 4 competition, with some creative accounting based on popular demand.

LEGO released this announcement below:

Fan Vote – The Final Vote: Help Celebrate the 90th Anniversary of The LEGO Group is open!

Round one is over, it’s time for round two!

First off, with over 77,000 people participating in this fan vote, we have been absolutely blown away by the incredible interest and support. So thank you to everyone who made their voices heard in this fan vote. We have seen every single one of your votes and comments both on LEGO Ideas and off, it’s mind-blowing how excited you all are. And we are too!

Enough of that. We’ve said thank you to you all, but you want to know what the top three will be!

The top three voted themes were:

  1. Bionicle

  2. Classic Space

  3. Pirates


With a monumental amount of support, you can see the full numbers for each theme below:

  1. Bionicle – 24799

  2. Classic Space – 18171

  3. Pirates – 15884

  4. Trains – 14855

However, we’ve seen an absolutely huge amount of support for Castle and each of the subthemes of Castle. We believe that we have made a mistake in not having all the Castle themes as just the one option to vote on in the first round. Even if you combine ‘Classic Castle’ and ‘Forestmen’ and not all of the other Castle subthemes, it pushes the number of votes up and Castle would be in the top three. This is what the results would look like if we consolidated the sub-themes of Castle:


  • If we add up every user that cast either 1, 2, or 3 votes for Castle, thatโ€™s 33489 users (more than double the necessary votes to make the top three).

  • If we add up all of the non-fantasy castle themes, excluding Classic Castle (Lion Knights, Black Falcons, Black Knights, Forestmen, and Wolfpack) there are 20821 users who cast a vote for at least one of these themes

  • If we add up Forestmen, Lion Knights, and Black Nights, (the three themes to succeed the Classic Yellow Castle) there are16030 users who cast a vote, again enough to take the 3rd place position from Pirates.

We realize and take full responsibility, that we made the mistake of splitting the Castle vote. So we are going to have our second vote, increase from three options to four to include Castle. As to not push out Pirates.

Second Vote

This will mean that the second fan vote will kick off with the following options:

  1. Bionicle

  2. Classic Space

  3. Pirates

  4. Castle

We feel as though this is one of the best ways not only to honor the winners of this fan vote, but also to let the voices of 33489 people who voted for Castle or a subtheme be heard.

If we consolidated any other subthemes together, for example ‘Classic Space’ and ‘Space Police’ or any other subtheme, it wouldn’t change the top three, and the winners. The only exception is Castle!

We hope you understand why we’re changing the rules slightly, and that you’re excited to cast your final vote to help us decide which themed set to launch in 2022!

If you have any questions, or concerns please drop them down in the comments down below.

The second vote will close on February 10th at 11AM CEST 2021. Please make sure you get your vote in by then! Oh and be sure to let us know why you’re voting for what you’re voting for on the voting page.

Best of luck to whatever theme you pick!
