Several new LEGO Ideas Sets Coming!

The LEGO Ideas team released some exciting information yesterday! Over the past four months, the LEGO Ideas review board has been evaluating nine projects that reached 10,000 supporters between January and May this year. In addition, they’ve also continued their evaluation of the Playable LEGO Piano from a previous review period, as it required more time to evaluate due to the project’s complexity. And the results are in!

First of all, this is what the LEGO Ideas team has to say about the Playable LEGO Piano: “After a prolonged review period that was required due to the sheer engineering complexity of this piano, we’d like to congratulate Donny Chen a.k.a. SleepyCow for having his design selected as one of the next LEGO Ideas sets. It’s clear to us that it’s been crafted with so much personal passion and attention for detail and that’s no doubt what resonated with so many people around the world when they first encountered his product idea submission.” If you’d like to learn more about Donny and his project, make sure to check out his 10K Club Interview.

The second project that was chosen for production is 123 Sesame Street by Ivan Guerrero a.k.a. bulldoozer21. It is a playful interpretation of one of the most iconic children’s television series. If you’d like to learn more about Ivan and his project, you can check out his 10K Club Interview.

And there is more! The Pirate Bay project was also selected to be made into an official LEGO set! This project was designed and submitted by Pablo Jiménez a.k.a. Bricky_Brick. LEGO hasn’t released a pirate set for quite some time, so this project is particularly exciting for LEGO Pirate fans. If you’d like to learn more about Pablo and his project, check out his 10K Club Interview.

And we are still not finished! The Anatomini project from this review period by Stephan Niks a.k.a. Stephanix, is still under review. The concept intrigued the LEGO Ideas review board, but they require additional time to make a decision, due to the highly complex design. If you’d like to learn more about Stephan and his project, make sure to check out his 10K Club Interview.

The LEGO Ideas team is still working on the final product design for the selected projects and their final design, pricing and availability will be announced later. And of course, the next batch of LEGO Ideas projects that reached 10,000 supporters between May and September of this year are already under review. The results, along with the fate of the Anatomini project, are going to be announced in early 2020.

For the current selection of sets originally submitted by LEGO fans, you can visit the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Pretty exciting, isn’t it? I know many LEGO fans are very happy are very happy about and looking forward to one or more of these projects. My favorite is Pirate Bay, and I’m also intrigued by the Playable LEGO Piano. What about you? How do you like the selected LEGO Ideas projects? Are you planning to get any of them?

    Oh, man. My childhood just spoke to me and brought back fond memories of Sesame Street. I always loved the works of the late and great Jim Henson ( Creature Shop). In fact, I just finished watching The Dark Crystal and the age of resistance on Netflix. Before I got into Lego I wanted to be a puppeteer. So, the Sesame Street Apartment is a plus for me. The Pirate Island is another Plus. It seems like the creators who created sets to hopefully be voted to be an idea set are getting better . I can’t wait for these sets to come out.😁

      They are on Netflix now? I have to check that out. Grew up with the show too. Puppet shows and playing with puppets used to be pretty popular with kids. I don’t know if kids are still into that.

    I didn’t expect them to chose so many! Pirate Bay is my favorite. I just hope it also included a pirate ship. Maybe this will be a revival of the Pirate theme? The piano is really good too, but does it play?

      Play is what Lego is about! Music, on the other hand…

    • Håkan September 27, 2019, 2:36 PM

      Besides lacking a pirate ship, it would also likely be somewhat reduced in size and complexity due to baseplates and other parts not being currently in production… (Although there seems to be boat hull parts that are decent replacements, and that raised building could possibly be achieved through BURP parts or something…

    OMG! Sesame Street!! I wasn’t expecting that! I hope they do it better then what they did with The Flinstones. The other sets are really good choices too.

    Yay for the pirate bay set!! Very excited about that one. The piano ought to be an amazing set too.

  • Peter September 27, 2019, 5:31 PM

    I’m very happy with the results. Especially excited for Pirate Bay!! I’m very curious about how they are going to handle those raised baseplates. I doubt they are going to bring them back.

    • Håkan September 28, 2019, 3:52 AM

      Possibly through some reduction in size, and various BURP parts, likely…
