BTS immortalised in LEGO form
K-pop legends BTS have been immortalised in brick form for LEGO's latest impressive set.
The LEGO Ideas BTS Dynamite kit, designed by a LEGO fan, features the seven-piece band on the video set of their global smash-hit single Dynamite.
When released in August 2020 its YouTube video reached over 100 million views in less than one day and one billion views in just eight months. It was also BTS' first number-one single in the United States.
This 749-piece LEGO set allows fans to uncover authentically recreated details that mirror scenes from the iconic music video. The new set includes the vibrant donut shop, ice cream truck, and record store. Each building is fully detachable, allowing for individual play and display experiences.
BTS are also now also available in LEGO minifigure form for the first time - with RM, Jin, SUGA, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook all ready to sing and dance in sync on the LEGO stages.
This LEGO Ideas set was the brainchild of LEGO fans and friends Josh, 20 from Indiana, and Jacob, 21 from New York. Combining their love of BTS and passion for LEGO building, they worked together to bring the set to life.
Talking about their process, Jacob said: "Josh did the building and design work and, as a massive BTS fan, I told him what needed to be in it, what details were most important. It was a really fun process".
Josh continued: "Jacob had the BTS knowledge, and he was able to direct my build in the proper way. I watched the music video over and over and tried to capture its essence in the LEGO bricks. It was insane when the project went viral online overnight."
The LEGO Ideas BTS Dynamite set is on sale from early March 2023 for £89.99/€99.99/$99.99
