Towards the end of December, we discussed the latest updates on the LEGO FORMA project at Indiegogo. (To learn more about LEGO FORMA see links at the end of this post.) At that time, LEGO was still on schedule to deliver all four LEGO FORMA sets by the beginning of January. Although production was finished, some hiccups came up in regards to delivering the sets. Below are the latest updates…
The LEGO FORMA campaign at Indiegogo was only available for LEGO fans in the US and the UK, so those are the only two places LEGO needed to ship the sets. Packages to the UK were already shipped at the beginning of the year, so, if you are from the UK, you should have received your LEGO FORMA set(s) by now.
LEGO fans in the US will have to wait a bit longer, however. The LEGO FORMA skins were produced in Europe, and there were unexpected delays delivering them to LEGO’s distribution center in the US during the high holiday shipping season. According to the latest update, the current outlook is that they should be received at the distribution center by the end of the month. After that, LEGO will do their best to have packages shipped out to backers as fast as possible. Currently, the expected delivery is around February 6th, although this could still change.
It’s a bit disappointing that LEGO fans in the US have to wait an extra month to receive their LEGO FORMA sets, however delays caused by unforeseen obstacles are very common with projects that go through fundraising platforms as their workflow is different than that of already established products. Another LEGO-related project I’m backing has been delayed by more than a year, so a one month holdup with LEGO FORMA is not bad at all.
What do you think? How do you like LEGO FORMA? Are you a backer in the Indiegogo campaign? And are you excited for the product coming in January? Are you planning to make your own designs for the skins? Do you see a future for these type of LEGO sets? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
