More news from LEGO Ideas! As we discussed previously, the LEGO Ideas review board has been working on wrapping up the third 2018 LEGO Ideas review period, and the results are now in! There were five fantastic projects in this review period, all of them with the required 10,000 supporters. In the announcement below, host Ali Plumb and LEGO Ideas Associate Engagement Manager, Hasan Jensen talk about the results of the review. 🙂

The five product ideas that were under review in the third 2018 LEGO Ideas review period that qualified between September 2018 and January 2019 are as follows: the Queen Victoria Cruise Ship by FlagsNZ, the Playable LEGO Piano by SleepyCow, the Chemical Plant by Ymarilego, the Food Stand Diners by FrostBricks, and the Dinosaurs Fossils Skeletons Natural History Collection by Mukkin. And now let’s watch the results.

Congratulations to French LEGO fan Jonathan Brunn (a.k.a. Mukkinn) for his highly educational and display-worthy set of intricate dinosaur skeleton fossils! If you’d like to learn more about Jonathan then make sure to check out his 10K club interview, where he talks about his background, work, hobbies, and what inspired him to build dinosaur skeletons from LEGO!

As you heard in the video, the Playable LEGO Piano by Donny Chen (a.k.a. SleepyCow) is still under review due to the complexity of the model. The LEGO Ideas team will share an update in the next review results later this year. If you’d like to learn more about Donny then make sure to check out his 10K club interview, which also gives a great indication of why the review board finds his submission very interesting.

The dinosaur skeletons are being planned for a 2019 launch, however the LEGO Ideas team is still working out the final product design, pricing, and availability for this set. In addition, the next batch of LEGO Ideas projects is already in review. These nine product ideas reached 10,000 supporters between January and May January 2019 as possible future LEGO sets. Results will be shared later in the fall.

And we can also look forward to the LEGO Treehouse, by LEGO fan Kevin Feeser (a.k.a. KevinTreeHouse) which should be released sometime soon. And don’t forget about all the recently released LEGO Ideas sets like the #21316 LEGO Ideas The Flintstones, the #21317 LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie, the previously released but still available #21315 LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book, the #21311 LEGO Ideas Voltron, the #21313 LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle, the #21309 LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V, the #21312 LEGO Ideas Women of NASA, and the #21314 LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy. You can find them all at the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.

As you may know, in late 2018 LEGO Ideas officially celebrated its 10-year anniversary. It’s been a journey that has brought so many incredible stories of collaborating with passionate LEGO fans around the world that has resulted in launching some of the most unique LEGO sets ever produced. Now, the LEGO Ideas team is giving a second chance to some of the previous projects that achieved 10,000 votes but were ultimately not approved. Below are the details on the projects and how you can vote for your favorite. 🙂

➡ WHY THE SPECIAL REVIEW? – This all started as the LEGO Ideas team reminisced on these past years, the product ideas that had been turned into official sets and all those that hadn’t. It led to the realization that they definitely wanted to celebrate those past product ideas that hadn’t made it, for one reason or another, even more and thereby to give them a second chance. All these thoughts kickstarted the special anniversary review, where they had to determine which product ideas still had the potential to become an official set based on their usual review criteria that encompasses aspects such as brand fit, build quality, feasibility, licensing possibilities, expected demand, current and future LEGO products and much more.

➡ HOW’S IT GOING TO WORK? – This time around the LEGO Ideas team flipped things around a bit. Firstly, they held the special anniversary review internally where they re-reviewed every single product idea that has reached the 10,000 supporter milestone but was not approved. They were all evaluated according to their usual criteria described earlier. The review resulted in four finalists, all of which have been pre-approved by the review board.

➡ HOW CAN YOU HELP? – What they LEGO Ideas team now needs is is your help in determining which one of these four finalists should become an official LEGO Ideas set. This is why they are now opened up for a fan vote via this page where you can vote for your favorite product idea and directly influence whether or not it becomes an official set! The product idea that gets the most votes by the end of the voting period will be turned into an official LEGO Ideas set with the winning fan receiving the same prize package as regular winning fan designers for product Ideas. Once the voting period closes and the winner is found, the LEGO Ideas team will get in touch with the winner and kickstart the product development phase. Voting is open until the 4th of June, 2019 (3PM CET), so make sure you cast your vote soon and before it’s too late! (Please note that the fan vote is a hidden/secret vote, meaning you will not be able to see how many votes a given product idea has received. The final vote count will be revealed at the end of the voting period.)

➡ WHICH ARE THE FOUR PRODUCT IDEAS? – The four product ideas that have been selected by the review board for you to vote on include Small Yellow by Nathan Sawaya, International Space Station by XCLD, Stitch by Legohaulic, as well as Sega Classic Arcade Machines by SpacySmoke. You can read more about each product idea and see more pictures by clicking on their names above, and you’ll also be able to vote for them on the same pages. To gather even more votes, you can also share your favorite with your friends, family, and the rest of the Internet via social media. And you can also check out the currently available LEGO Ideas sets originally submitted by LEGO fans at the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like the four LEGO Ideas projects that are up for voting again? Which one is your favorite? Are there any other projects you would like to get a second chance? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
