With the release of the latest addition to the LEGO Ideas lineup—Seinfeld (21328)—we now have some new information surfacing on several known-leaker's Instagram accounts. Their new information suggests that the long-awaited LEGO Ideas Home Alone set, which we've been tentatively calling set 21329, will be significantly smaller in scale than the originally proposed LEGO Ideas project. They're also reporting that the release of the next LEGO Ideas set will come sooner than previously speculated, with a late September release on Shop@Home instead of late Fall.
The new rumors, which have been shared by several Instagram accounts well-known for announcing leaked details and information, suggests that the forthcoming LEGO Ideas Home Alone Mccallister's House (21329) will only retail for $100 USD, which is a far-cry from most of the past rumors we've heard, and also when one considers the original submission contained over 3,000 pieces (which would equate to roughly $300 USD). A lot of fans suspect there may have been a change at the Design level that may have resulted in the set becoming simply a facade as opposed to a full modular build.
Could it also be possible that the set was altered into a non-minifigure scale build—perhaps even turned into a microbuild? There's not really any other means by which a 3,000 piece submission could be downgraded by nearly 2,000 parts without changing the scale or type of design of the project, which would be very unusual considering the only minor alterations we've seen with a lot of recent Official LEGO Ideas sets—with the Medieval Blacksmith (21325) being one of the most drastic alterations we've seen of late.
As for right now, there's no supporting evidence that this rumor is accurate, and it should be treated strictly as a rumor until we get closer to the release window.
