I have a habit of completely forgetting that certain LEGO Ideas sets are in the pipeline and then getting surprised when a press release hits my inbox. This is one of those cases. In my defence though this set doesn’t come from the standard LEGO Ideas process. This set is based on a winning competition entry. It also looks fantastic.
As a display piece the Jazz Quartet is fantastic. The chosen scale and execution of the characters should make this appeal beyond just jazz fans.
The set will cost $169.99 here in Australia when it is released on July 1st.

FEEL THE RHYTHM WITH THE NEW LEGO® JAZZ QUARTET SET
Latest fan-designed creation from LEGO is perfect for music lovers
Billund, 15th June 2022: Today, the LEGO Group has revealed the latest fan-designed set, LEGO Ideas Jazz Quartet – a striking depiction of a musical ensemble in brick form, designed to be co-built by up to four friends. Designed by Taiwan based, LEGO fan, Hsinwei Chi through the LEGO Ideas platform – which offers fans the opportunity to submit their own brick creations with the chance to have their concept brought to life with the help of LEGO master designers and a share of the profits.
Let the smooth harmony and diversity of jazz music take on a new form with this latest set, which consists of a group of four musicians on a stage, with a grand piano, trumpet, double bass, and jazz drum, representing a quartet as they perform. Place the finished piece on a bookshelf and admire it whilst you relax with some melodies playing in the background.
LEGO Ideas fan designer Hsinwei Chi says, “There is nothing quite like the warmth of jazz music, so when I designed this set I wanted the LEGO bricks to truly capture the musical vitality of a live band. Much like LEGO building, free-spirited jazz can be medicine for your mind – so I hope when the Jazz Quartet set is built and displayed, people will feel a connection to the music.”
The new LEGO Ideas Jazz Quartet set is available for £89.99 / € 99.99 / $ 99.99 /169.99 AUD/ 129.99 CAD

A bit expensive but Im definitely excited for this one, and its the first ideas set in a long time thats a must-have for me.
Also, pretty funny when a set is officially revealed two whole weeks after someone first finds it on shelves (that wasnt in Australia though, of course)
That’s quite a markup for AUD pricing
Looks like such a fun build though
The original MOC blew my mind. Lego has somehow managed to rob it of all it’s subtlety and atmosphere. And is that E.T. in a dress playing the piano?
Hugely underwhelmed by this. The original design was so much better. LEGO have botched this in my opinion.
