Lego Certified Professional Sets

Recommended Posts

I want to index the full "line" of Lego Certified Professional sets, as the information available out there is somewhat mixed. Minifig Price Guide has the most comprehensive data, but I'd like to format it similar to Brickset, with more information as well as instructions, parts lists, and LDD/LXF files.

I've created a really rudimentary Google Doc with most of the information I could find so far. I plan to add to it as I find more information like parts lists, etc.

If you don't know what the LCP sets are, they are Lego sets built by independent designers that are authorized by Lego. They have the Lego logo on them, but don't have a model number, and are limited to 500 in production count. They seem to mostly be popular in European countries.

I spent a good chunk of my weekend trying to recreate the Hilton Paris Opera in LDD, to some success. My model isn't accurate (the parts count is incorrect) but seems to resemble the finished model. I only had this low-quality

as a reference, so if I had instructions in hand it would be perfect.

Because these models are available in such limited quantities, they command a really high price in the aftermarket, and I'm not interested in paying that. The models, however, have some _awesome_ designs, especially if you're an architecture fan, so I think it would be awesome to get instructions and parts lists available to people who may want to BrickLink them.

So, what can you do to help?

If you own one of the Lego Certified Professional sets or have access to an instruction manual, could you please do any of the following:

  • Send me a video of you paging through the instruction manual
  • Send me a parts list
  • Build the set in LDD and send me the file
  • Mail me the instruction manual (I will pay for shipping both ways to get it back in your hands)

Here are the sets I need information on:

  • Ravenel Bridge
  • Snap-On Tool Chest
  • The Gherkin
  • Durham Cathedral (Medium and Large variants)
  • Hilton Paris Opera
  • Tyne Bridge
  • Farm & Tractor Trailer
  • Wetland Animals
  • Montrose Fire Engine
  • Motor Home and Caravan
  • Power [up] San Francisco
  • Reefscape Series

Thanks! I'm hoping with everyone's help we can piece together these really rare sets!

Update: thanks to a kind Reddit user, I now have the instructions and LXF file for the Durham Cathedral small variant! I should also have the Ravenel Bridge instructions in hand at some point soon.

Great, thanks for the feedback! I've added those. I didn't add the Intel ones because in the video it's really not clear whether it's truly an LCP set. I know Google has some Android "brick" sets that are not real Lego but actually generic brand bricks.

I believe that they are lego, but made by a bricklink store. I will check tonight.

Also,

Nice list. I may be able to add a section to the site that make this more clear.

Thanks Shawn, your site is a great resource as well! I'm hoping down the line to turn it into more of a Brickset style that's web-based, but for now this will have to do.

I purchased the large Durham cathedral and have created the LXF file for it.

There are no building errors and the colors are correct (agonizingly so, as I'm colorblind and had to enlist some help from friends). Here is the LXF file.

I also bought the Exeter and Chester cathedrals, and will be creating the LDD files for those in due time.

Hi,

I just found about 10 more of these. I added pictures for all of the ones that you have listed as well. Please add to your spreadsheet as you see fit. See it here. Most of the new ones are at the bottom and are either Stena and/or Printabrick. I am not certain about a few of them. The Soccer and the Castle ones in particular.

I received an e-mail from the Chester Cathedral today taking orders for a new model of their Water of Life sculpture. I have to assume this is an LCP set but will wait for more details. £125 and only 500 available, I'm still deciding whether to order or not.

How does one find out about these sets to be able to purchase them or are they mostly give aways? I had no clue these existed until I stumbled across the Snap-on Tool Chest on eBay while I was looking for some tools for work.
