Revised chip shop design hopes to become a Lego reality


A second attempt has been made for a fish and chip shop Lego set to become a reality after its creator put forward a number of revisions.

Johnathan Oldbury originally came up with the elaborate design for the two storey corner shop set back in 2016, but it failed to reach the 10,000 supporters necessary on the Lego Ideas platform for it to be considered by the toy giant.


However, after several revisions, which include an upgrade of the top floor flat, replacing the pitched roof with a flat roof to reduce the piece count and set cost, and printed bricks, it’s back for one final attempt.


The 2,120 piece set features a frying range complete with heat rack, a walk in fridge freezer, a menu board with leaflet menus, salt, vinegar and sauce bottles on the counter, papers for wrapping food, and an area for peas, gravy, curry sauce and beans.

It also comes with four staff members in uniform, two for food preparation and two to serve the cooked food.


Commenting on the concept, creator and prop designer Johnathan, says: “Seeing all sorts of buildings being designed by Lego over the years, I noticed that there was not a good representation of a chip shop, one of the most iconic British buildings there is, with many in every town and city. So I started building and designing different variations and have come up with this Lego Idea design that represents the chip shop perfect with plenty of detail, even having variations of Lego chip shop meals!"
