A few days ago LEGO announced the next LEGO Ideas sets from the selection of fan created models that got 10,000 public votes. It is always interesting to see the candidates and what LEGO eventually chooses based on their criteria. Below are the details and video of the announcement. 🙂
Over the past several months, we’ve reviewed nine amazing projects that reached 10,000 supporters between May and September last year, which was our second review qualification period of 2015. Here are the results:
LEGO Caterham Super Seven – Carl Greatrix is known in the LEGO fan community for his photo-realistic models of cars, trains, and aircraft. He’s perfectly captured the classic British sports car in LEGO bricks … and now you’ll be able to own one too.
LEGO Adventure Time – These poseable brick-built Adventure Time figures are coming to a Land of Ooo near you. Yep, it’s finally time for LEGO Adventure Time, thanks to aBetterMonkey.
Design, pricing, and availability– We’re still working out the final product design, pricing and availably for both the LEGO Caterham Super Seven and LEGO Adventure Time sets, so check back on LEGO Ideas later this year for details.
Decision regarding Star Citizen F7A Hornet– For the last two review periods, we’ve carried forward the LEGO Star Citizen F7A Hornet by nosmigon project for review. Unfortunately we’ve decided not to consider the project further.
Next Review Results Late Spring 2016 – The next batch of LEGO Ideas projects are already in review. We’re considering these projects that reached 10,000 supporters between September and January as possible future LEGO sets. We’ll share results of the third 2015 LEGO review period for projects that qualified between September 2015 and early January 2016 later this spring.
The LEGO Caterham Super Seven by Carl Greatrix was definitely an excellent choice that many LEGO fans are already very excited about. I’m curious to see how LEGO is going to handle some of the design details, as Carl is known for using some unconventional methods. It is worth checking out his flickr gallery because of his wonderful LEGO models. If done well, this can be an amazing set that will also offer many options for customization.
The Adventure Time television series has a huge fan-base, and not just amongst children, but also teens and adults. It will be interesting to see how a LEGO set based on the animated film will be received. So far I have read both positive and negative reactions to the LEGO Ideas model. Hopefully LEGO can make the characters interactive and playable enough, so they are not just an assortment of static miniatures to collect dust.
If you would like to see the currently available LEGO Ideas sets designed by LEGO fans, there are some excellent choices available right now. The #21304 LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set, the #21303 LEGO Ideas WALL-E and the #21108 LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 are particularly excellent. And the #21305 LEGO Ideas Maze is going to be released shortly. You can find them all under the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? How do you like these upcoming LEGO Ideas sets? And which one would you like to see succeed from the next review period? What is your favorite LEGO Ideas set so far? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
