Visitors to LEGO House in Billund, Denmark, can now acquire a new exclusive set – 40503 Dagny Holm – Master Builder.
The sixth LEGO House exclusive set is 40503 Dagny Holm – Master Builder and pays tribute to the original Master Builder, who was responsible for the world’s first Miniland and pioneered using LEGO bricks to construct large sculptures. She passed away 18 years ago today.
