This Lego ‘Home Alone’ set makes us feel all kinds of nostalgia
You can now build and defend a Lego version of Kevin McCallister’s house from the Wet Bandits
Have all the feelings you want to have about the onslaught of remakes (including the upcoming Alone at home update), but this is a new take on a classic ’90s movie that everyone will enjoy. The amazingly detailed 3,955 piece Lego set includes Alone at home Easter eggs, traps that work straight out of the movie, and enough nostalgia-inducing flourishes to warm even the most cynical of hearts during the holidays.
The Alone at home The Lego set will be released on November 1 and cost a pretty dime at $ 250, making it a very special gift for anyone looking to bond with their kids on Legos – or for an adult who is just a child at heart!

While the idea of building a Lego set of almost 4,000 pieces is somewhat daunting, the finished construction seems to be worth all the frustrations you might face. The building opens like a dollhouse, revealing a million cinematic moments. There’s the spooky haunted furnace in the basement, Buzz’s creepy creepy tarantula, and the clever train set, complete with a cardboard cutout from Michael Jordan.
Of course, we also get the Wet Bandits themselves. Seriously, we didn’t realize we needed a Joe Pesci Lego figure in our life until this very moment.
There’s even a working zipline, so you can piece together even the most action-packed moments of Kevin’s hijinks.
Seriously, no detail is too small in this plastic brick version of Kevin McCallister’s house bomb in Chicago.
Last summer, the classic toy company revealed it will bring a fan’s Lego idea to life. Alex Storozhuk, a passionate builder and Lego fan, submitted the idea to Lego Ideas. After winning, he explained what prompted him to submit the Alone at home design in the first place.
“Like all ’90s kids, I grew up watching this classic and it takes a very special place in my heart. I can’t even imagine a vacation without it. Alone at home. This film is very nostalgic and brings back these warm childhood memories each time. Last Christmas we looked at it and exhibited the Winter Village, I clearly remember when I was wondering – “Why isn’t there any LEGO? Alone at home together? ”I thought it would be a great collaboration and brand complementarity and I just couldn’t give up!
Storojuk quickly took to the internet, found detailed plans for the McCallister house online, and got to work. He did the first build in less than a week. It sounds like a fun challenge for us.
