The line will be part of the Lego Master Builder Academy, specifically "Level 4," titled "Invention Designer." Like all the Master Builder Academy "Levels," there will be three separate kits with 13 different designs to build. Here are the official details:

TRAVEL TO THE PAST… AND DESIGN THE FUTURE! – Launch your Invention Designer adventure! LEGO Master Builders merge the futuristic idea of time-travel with the clockwork gears and puffing steam-engines of the Victorian 1800′s – Steampunk! Steampunk is a science-fiction art-form that imagines the future as people might have in the past. Let it inspire all kinds of new ideas, and pick up some tips from professional LEGO designers on how to make your creations look futuristic, industrial or just plain cool!


MASTER HISTORICAL DESIGNS… TO BUILD MODELS FOR ANY PLACE OR TIME! - Designing & building realistic architecture! – LEGO Master Builders are influenced by real-world architecture when they design new LEGO sets. Learn how they use different styles from different eras or cultures to create all-new models! Whether it’s Roman windows, Asian temples or medieval houses, mastering these styles expands your building skills and helps you see new uses for all your LEGO pieces!

YOU ARE THE INVENTOR… ADD MOVEMENT AND FUNCTIONALITY TO YOUR CREATIONS! – Follow in the footsteps of the great inventor Leonardo da Vinci! Build a model of one of his most famous inventions, a boat with two large paddle-wheels on its side! As you build it and more designs in this set, learn how to add gears and other mechanisms to your models to create real movement and functions! Be inspired by the LEGO Master Builders – and Leonardo – to imagine your own inventions!
