This basement is built separately, then attached to the set.

Now though, let's look at what makes this set so similar to its movie counterpart.


WHAT MAKES THE LEGO IDEAS HOME-ALONE SET SO SIMILAR TO THE MOVIE?

There are a lot of things that make this set similar to that of the movie. But the most outspoken similarity between the Home Alone movie and the set is its Minifigures. This set contains five Minifigures, which represent each main character of the movie. Let's look at these features closely to get a clearer insight into the similarities.

• KEVIN MCCALLISTER.

The first Minifigure that is recognizable is that of Kevin McCallister. The Lego ideas set designs, Kevin, with the blond hair and signature look throughout the movie, in his red jumpers and khaki pants since Kevin is depicted as being brave and scared. Brave enough to put up a fight against the bandits by booby-trapping his entire Home, but very scared when all seems to be failing him as the bandits successfully overcome each obstacle Kevin throws their way. To depict this perfectly, the Lego ideas team gives Kevin Minifigure two different faces. One shows his brave side, and another shows his scared side. This helps builders connect with his character as they did with that of the movie.



• HARRY LIME.

Harry Lime is one out of the two bandits who attempt to rob the McCallister home. His Minifigure is made to wear a thick ash jacket with a head warmer, which the McCallister boy eventually ruins. Among the bandits who visit the McCallister home, he appears to be the smart and cunning one. This is depicted in the set by giving him a stern and severe look.


• MARV MURCHINS.

This is the second member of the bandit squad which invades Kevin's Home. Well, among the two bandits, he appears to be the dumb one who is there only for moral support. He quickly gets stuck in most of the traps set by Kevin and is the primary reason most people watch the movie to the end. Just like Kevin, he too comes with two faces. One set to replicate red brunt face after being cut by one of Kevin's traps. The face clearly shows the pain Murchins experiences as his face turns red.

• KATE MCCALLISTER.

The Minifigure of Kate McCallister is also featured in this set. Well, she is represented in the appearance she had when you came home to find Kevin after the whole ordeal. She was in her brown suit and white dress. Her hair featured a bum, just as it was in the movie. Feel empathy as you dive into a more emotional scene with this set, Minifigure.


• OLD MAN MARLEY.

Mr. Marley, also known as old man Marley, is the fine neighbor Kevin runs to for help dealing with the bandits. His Minifigure appears in a thick beard and shovel for recognition. Recreate the scene of Kevin running over to the old man's house in search of inspiration to deal with the bandits. Yes, these Minifigures help this set feel more realistic.

WHY DOES MINIFIGURES MAKE THIS SET LOOK MORE REALISTIC?

Well, Minifigures are what give life to the set. This is not said to underestimate anyway the number of details put into the McCallister building itself. The Minifigures help make the whole detailed scene the set provides worth it. The Minifigures help make the building fun. And thank the Lego ideas team for making each section of the McCallister building accessible. You can recreate scenes in each room using each of the Minifigures and facial expressions the set provides. What other feature makes this set a replica of the movie? Let's find out.


WHAT OTHER COOL FEATURES DOES THIS SET PROVIDE?

Well, this set also includes two other features which make it stand to replicate its movie counterpart. These features include the getaway van and treehouse. Let's look at these two features closely.


• THE GETAWAY VAN.

This Lego set also features the getaway van used by the bandits to reach the McCallister home. The van is designed to be just like its movie counterpart. The van appears in its light blue color and small tires. This van is also buildable. This gives builders a lot to look forward to with this set. So if you are looking for a more challenging build, this is definitely the way to go.

• KEVINS TREE HOUSE.

This set also features Kevin’s Treehouse, a place where at some point, Kevin had stayed in to hide from the bandits. Though this is a more insignificant detail, the Lego ideas team still put in the effort to make it as realistic as possible. So ensure to give this set the same focus as you gave the main building. And just for fun, after you have finished the main set, you could assign one of your kids the responsibility of bringing the small but very significant piece to life. Once they have completed the task, you could then reward them as you dim fit.
