Will and Grace LEGO has been created – but it needs your help if you want to see it in the shops

Lauren Franklin July 15, 2018

A designer has created a Will and Grace LEGO set, featuring all the fan favourites.

Amateur LEGO designer Mark Fitzpatrick has submitted his visions of the gang to the LEGO Ideas website, where pitches that clock up enough votes will see their products hit the shelves.

We could hopefully be seeing the Will and Grace cast in LEGO form very soon

The set description says: “Explore Will Truman’s apartment at 9C, 155 Riverside Drive and recreate your favourite moments from this award-winning comedy series.

“Featuring Will, Grace, Jack and Karen minifigures, Will’s apartment is brimming with familiar furniture, objects and spaces.”

This isn’t Fitzpatrick’s first attempt at bringing LGBTQ icons to the brand, he previously designed figures and a set for RuPaul’s Drag Race, which unfortunately didn’t attract enough support to be made.

If you don’t want Will and Grace to suffer the same fate, get voting on the LEGO Ideas website, in which the designer has 413 days left to reach 10,000 votes, at time of writing he has 688 supporters.

Fitzpatrick said: “I really wanted to create and share another LGBTQI friendly concept, knowing how important positive, fun representation means to so many in our community.

“I enjoyed sharing my last concept so much and received such a warm, genuinely positive reaction for LEGO lovers all over the world, I couldn’t wait to sink my creative chops into another design.

“I’ve always enjoyed Will & Grace and think a LEGO set based on this globally-loved, multi-award-winning comedy would make good commercial sense for LEGO and provide hours of building and play fun for fans all around the world.

“At its heart, this sitcom is a celebration of friendship through thick and thin. It values individuality and love and it helped pave the way for greater mainstream representation of LGBT lives.

“All of these qualities inspire me and encouraged me to celebrate it, as it approaches its 10th season, through this LEGO project.”
