LEGO Ideas is releasing a set based on the beloved Christmas family comedy movie Home Alone, featuring the McCallister house as a beautiful display model that opens up to reveal Kevin’s many booby traps.
The McCallister house is here in 21330 Home Alone, the largest ever LEGO Ideas set with a massive 3,957 pieces. This design was the brainchild of LEGO fan Alex Storozhuk, whose name is included in the set as the name of the airline on Kevin’s plane ticket. As the images show, the model offers an exterior recreation of the iconic festive home, but also opens up to reveal a full interior.
That interior is packed with moments from the movie, both when Macaulay Culkin’s Kevin initially realises he has been left alone, then when he has filled the house with booby traps to protect it. Some of the movie moments included in the set are the after-shave can in the bathroom, Buzz’s pet tarantula, the robbers’ van, the paint cans used to knock them down, the treehouse with zipline, the fireplace, Christmas tree, a toy train, grandfather clock, dining table and record player.

‘Just like every 90s kid, I grew up watching Home Alone and it takes a very special place in my heart. I can’t even imagine holidays without it. This movie is very nostalgic and makes those warm childhood memories come up every time,’ says Alex.

‘Bringing Alex’s Home Alone house to life has been brilliant fun. He’d thought about every aspect, from the layout of the rooms to the use of colour and of course the details from the movie to make it instantly recognisable,’ says Antica Bracanov, one of the set’s two designers. ‘Following the themes of the film, we wanted to make the experience as immersive as possible for fans of LEGO building and the movie. The step-by-step build which mirrors the movie, and the ability to open up the set and see inside lends itself well to hours of joyful focus this holiday season – just add a festive backdrop and a certain Christmas movie.’
