Designer insight: Theo Bonner

Many LEGO set designers use our BrickLists feature to maintain a list of the sets they've worked on and often provide interesting insights about their involvement.

Once a week we publish an entry from one of their lists on the home page to increase awareness of this information and to encourage more designers to create them.

I had the privilege of working on this set with my mentor Leonardo Francisco Lopez (leo026). I was tasked with the design of Kai's catamaran, with the goal of creating a speedboat that transforms into a catamaran complete with shooters and a sail.
