You might think you already own everything Gilmore Girls under the sun, but now go ahead and add something else to your ever-growing wish list. Some beautiful genius out there really wants to make a Luke’s Diner-themed Gilmore Girls Lego set, and right now, this is the only thing on our holiday shopping list for 2017. This is the only thing we want in life for the foreseeable future.
FYI, Lego actually lets users submit ideas for new Lego sets. Not really sure why it’s taken this long for someone to submit for a Gilmore Girls set, but good things come to those who wait. At the end of April, user Rainer Zufall submitted his idea for this collection, and it’s perfect in every single way — and not just because it includes the *correct* Rory boyfriend, Jess.
The reason behind Zufall’s Stars Hollow mock-up (and submitting this set) is very adorable, and we’re in love with it already:
“The Idea of building Luke’s Diner came to me, because my wife is a really big Gilmore Girls fan and she asked me to build Luke’s Diner for her. So, since I am a big Lego fan I was glad to do this for her and – here it is :)”
The set includes our favorites: a Lego Lorelai, Luke, Rory, Jess, Lane (in her Luke’s Diner’s outfit) and, last but not least, Kirk.
The attention to detail in Luke’s is cray spot-on, because can you see that tiny, little NO CELL PHONES sign? Even Lego Luke is kinda a grouch.
So now, big question: How can you get your hands on this glorious thing? This is also where we need your help. This Gilmore Girls set is just an idea that’s been submitted to Lego, and it needs to gain 10,000 followers for the idea to be submitted to Lego for actual review. Once it’s in for review, Lego then decides if they will (or, won’t) make the set, and listen WE NEED LEGO LORELAI.
You can support the Luke’s Diner set right here. The dream of owning your own (Lego) Luke’s might just come true.
