In an interview with LEGO’s 10K Club, Bretz and Jacob shared that the idea for the LEGO set stemmed from the commercial success of ‘Dynamite’. “I saw the success of the music video itself, and knew this was a space that needed to be filled in the Ideas lineup,” Bretz explained. “With such a dedicated fan base, the BTS ‘Dynamite’ music video is just so iconic.”
Jacob added that Bretz focused on the design, while he directed the building process using his knowledge of BTS. “I told him what needed to be in it, what details were most important and how this set needed to present itself,” Jacob added. “I also sent him many screenshots from the music video.”
As of writing, a final product design for the ‘Dynamite’ LEGO set has yet to be released. Further details on pricing and availability of the sets are expected to be released through the LEGO Ideas website in the coming months.
