LEGO® Trolls World Tour: Grantmasters' MOCs

We sent trolls to New Zealand! The incredible Grantmasters (on Flickr) agreed to take a bunch of LEGO® Trolls World Tour sets to use as ‘seed parts’ for original creations using his own collection. The products in this article were provided for free by LEGO; the author's opinions are not biased by this.

The sets arrived and my kids said to me, "Good luck with that!" – so figured perhaps I had my work cut out for me? Indeed they proved to be a bit of a test of my creativity. Included were 41251 Poppy’s Pod, 41255 Pop Village Celebration and two copies of both 41252 Poppy’s Hot Air Balloon Adventure and 41253 Lonesome Flats Raft Adventure.

I started by emptying all of the sets out and seeing which parts I thought were interesting.

New and rare pieces in LEGO® Trolls World Tour sets

We sent some LEGO® Trolls World Tour sets to the talented New Zealand-based builder Grantmasters for him to use as 'seed parts' for his own creations, which we will reveal to you tomorrow! Included were 41251 Poppy's Pod, 41252 Poppy's Hot Air Balloon Adventure, 41253 Lonesome Flats Raft Adventure and 41255 Pop Village Celebration. 


But first we thought we'd give you this rundown on which elements are exclusive to those 4 sets (new moulds, recolours or prints) as well as the 'rare' ones that have only appeared in a few sets so far. We have created these tables with Tobias Witmer using data from Rebrickable.

LEGO® Trolls World Tour: Jonas Kramm's Temple of the Blue Sea

Jonas Kramm returns today to reveal the alternate build he created using only sets from the controversial LEGO® Trolls World Tour theme!



My analysis of the new pieces in the LEGO® Trolls World Tour sets revealed many colourful elements so it’s no wonder that my alternative build turned out pretty flashy too. Let’s dive in and discover the Temple of the Blue Sea!

LEGO® Trolls World Tour: the new parts

It's hard to ignore LEGO® Trolls, and in fact there are a lot of interesting things going on with the parts from this new 2020 theme. To kick our coverage off, Jonas Kramm examines the new, recoloured and printed elements (and foam ones!) to be found in four of the sets from this theme.

Glitter and bright colours! The new series of LEGO® sets dedicated to DreamWorks’ Trolls World Tour movie are here. To the adult eye they might seem a bit crazy, but we got them anyway… to investigate in true New Elementary fashion by seeing what new pieces and colours they bring and how those might be used.
