The Lego world is about to get some Extravaganza Eleganza!
Lego Ideas is a website where us fans can submit our ideas on which Lego sets should be produced next. Next, we have to gather as much support as you can, and our favorite projects reaches 10,000 supporters, the idea will be sent for review by the Lego powers that be — with a shot at becoming a real-life, official #Lego set!
Inspired by RuPaul’s Drag Race, user SeeMarkGeek has created 'RuPaul’s Brick Race,' featuring our favorite drag queen, RuPaul Charles, and even some of her previous and more famous contestants.
Included in the set is:
- The Workroom — consists of a television for Ru's announcements, a prep area and mirror, wigs, a tailoring form, sewing equipment and makeup.
- The Clutch Game Stage — based on the entertaining 'Snatch Game,' this comes with stage lighting, name cards and a podium for #RuPaul. May the best woman win!
- 8 Minifigs — this includes not one, not two, but three variations of RuPaul (the iconic racing jumpsuit with checkered flag, Clutch Game host and a Leopard-print runway gown). Contestants include Bianca Del Rio as Judge Judy, Katya Zamolodchikova as Björk, Milk as Julia Child, Jinkx Monsoon as Little Edie and Alyssa Edwards as Katy Perry.

What exactly made SeeMarkGeek want to create this set?
I stuck at creating RuPaul’s Brick Race because it was fun! At its core, the subject material this set is based on is whimsical, colourful and full of life and I think these are qualities that marry well with the medium of LEGO.
SeeMarkGeek's designs capture the color, campiness and fierceness of our favorite queens, and we can't help but dream of future sets too. We could get a judging stage and runway, alternative costumes for our minifigs, and let's not forget — Michelle Visage!
