LEGO Ideas 10th Anniversary winner revealed!

Last month, the LEGO Ideas team gave a second chance to some of the previous projects that achieved 10,000 votes but were ultimately not approved. During this special review process, the LEGO Ideas team pre-approved four product ideas that they felt still had potential to become official sets. LEGO fans had only a couple of weeks to vote for their favorite from the four projects, and now the result is in! (You can read more about the projects and the voting process here: LEGO Ideas 10th Anniversary Re-Vote Now Open). The response from LEGO fans have been extremely positive, and over 22,000 LEGO Ideas members enthusiastically cast their vote. 🙂

The LEGO Ideas team shared the following: It’s certainly been incredible for us to witness how passionate LEGO Ideas fans still remain about these product ideas and we’d like to send a special thanks to all four members – Nathan Sawaya, XCLD , Legohaulic, and SpacySmoke – for their passionate interest in participating in this special review. Second chances can certainly be great and filled with anticipation, but we also respect that they can be tough if the result doesn’t go in one’s favor. However, regardless of the results, all models are still works of exceptional quality that will live on in different ways and deserve a huge amount of awe and applause!”

The result of the re-vote is as follows: Small Yellow by Nathan Sawaya got 2,924 votes, International Space Station by XCLD got 10,438 votes, Stitch by Legohaulic got 5,739 votes, and Sega Classic Arcade Machines by SpacySmoke got 3,788 votes. (You can read more about each product idea and see more pictures by clicking on the links.)

Big congratulations to XCLD whose design has achieved an unprecedented 45.6% of all the votes cast – an incredible achievement in short fan vote period. It continues to show the huge desire for space and space exploration among the LEGO Ideas community. The International Space Station design will now move into the official product development phase, in the same way as it works during regular reviews. As always, the LEGO Ideas team won’t be able to reveal any other details, including price, final design, etc., until we get closer to the set’s launch in 2020. But, they sincerely thank the many thousands of fans who voted, commented, and shared in order to make this re-voting event so successful.

From what I have been reading, LEGO Space and NASA fans have been extremely happy about the International Space Station becoming an official LEGO sets. In fact, it looks like LEGO Space is in another golden era with several recently released and shortly upcoming space exploration sets. This includes the highly popular#21309 LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V, the small #21312 LEGO Ideas Women of NASA set, the just released #10266 LEGO NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander, and a large LEGO City Space Exploration collection that’s already available in some regions and will be released in North America at the end of the month.

What do you think? How do you like the winning LEGO Ideas project? Which of the four candidates did you vote for? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

Congrats! Can’t wait to see the final design. Hope they don’t deviate too much from the LEGO fan version.

I’m very surprised. I was sure Stitch will win as everyone seemed to be voting for him. Not complaining. Just surprised that the space station won with such a big margin.

The space station looks fragile. I wonder how they’re going to handle stability. I’m not disappointed though. NASA sets are some of my favorites.

Maybe they’ll solve stability by making the model extremely rigid. In essence, playability will be reduced by having all apparent moving parts fixed solid.

I can’t wait to see what the final ISS design looks like. I have a small hope that the NASA/space set popularity will get us a new version of the Mars Rover 21104 that I missed out on. Still kicking myself, and I’m about ready to buy all the individual bricks and build it that way.

Oh, man! I would love to get that set! I think that was the first time an Ideas set was so popular it sold out almost immediately.

I was actually looking at it the day it came out, as I remember it, but wanted to wait a few days – some other set I wanted was coming out then and my brilliant plan was to order them at the same time and get the free shipping or double points or something.

Yeah. The brilliant plan was not so brilliant. Hence me staying up late to order the Saturn V ASAP.

Ouch… this brings back painful memories. I did the same thing with the Mars Rover and missed out. 🙁

Christi, LEGO designer Jamie Berard indeed hinted on the possibility of space/NASA sets becoming a regular sub-theme of Creator. It would make sense for them to release the Mars Rover as well as the Shuttle. We will see…
