LEGO House 40505 Building Systems Officially Revealed | March 2024

29th February is a date that only happens every four years and this year it's the date of the official presentation of 2024s exclusive LEGO House. It was just the other day we covered the rumoured exclusive build but today Denmark took the covers off the latest model in front of fans and fan media.

2023 saw the release of the popular 40504 A Minifigure Tribute which included a brick-built LEGO Pirate Minifigure. Previous sets have been based on official LEGO machines or brick-built offices around the world. But 2024s model is another LEGO set based on a range of old, nostalgic models, bringing back those early LEGO building memories.

In particular, 2024s LEGO House exclusive set is 40505 Building Systems which includes a total of 1,211 pieces. It will retail for 699 DKK as it will only be sold in Denmark but this is roughly $100 if your US based. As the name suggests, the 10+ model is based on previous LEGO Building Systems including the classic System, Technic elements and LEGO Duplo.

Each LEGO Building System has its own microscale model included in 40505 based on a classic LEGO set from many, many years ago. 810 Town Plan set is the first to be included, showcasing how the generic LEGO System has expanded, developed and introduced loads more colours, pieces and techniques of the year. It's an iconic set which was the start of many people's first brick-built LEGO Citys.

LEGO Technic isn't stopping anytime soon and continues to grow in popularity but one of the first technical models was 853 Car Chassis. Many technical elements were included to create a range of different cars from offroaders to racers. Plenty of classic LEGO colours of yellow, blue and red were used for the complex inner workings of these cars.

And finally, we have our LEGO Duplo model of 2705 Passenger Train which released back in 1983. Another colourful set which introduced the youngest of builders to the wonderful world of LEGO. Two Duplo figures were included in the original set but have sadly missed out on being turned into microscale here in 40505 Building Systems. However, like the other two models, it's very recognizable and shows an iconic piece of LEGO history.

But the set is not done just yet. For 1,211 pieces plenty more historic and iconic microscale builds are included around the back of the brick build display stand showcasing the three building systems. These are built into the grey wall and include 19 different models such as The Wooden Duck, 8480 Space Shuttle and 40581 Tahu and Takua. Plus there’s even room to add in your own microscale designs too.
