LEGO IDEAS – “I AM YOUR FATHER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “I AM YOUR FATHER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Oh boy still no excitement coming out of this current bunch of Ideas with the fourth Idea based on the iconic scene from Star Wars when Luke finds out Darth Vader is his father. While this sounds like a good concept I have to say straight off the bat this Idea has some major issues! Summary below: Based on a current License (Star Wars) – moving forward LEGO Ideas has changed the rules to exclude existing licenses. Digital render –…

LEGO IDEAS – “NF-15B RESEARCH AIRCRAFT” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “NF-15B RESEARCH AIRCRAFT” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

I have to be honest and start off with saying I’m not getting very excited by the current bunch of LEGO Ideas that have hit 10,000 supporters so far. 3 months into the second 2017 review panel and we only have three LEGO Ideas through – feels like watching paint dry! To be fair the designers have done a good job maybe I’m just sleep deprived after a late LEGO build night with PLUG and rough day at work. Anyway time…

LEGO IDEAS – “THE WONDERS OF PERU” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “THE WONDERS OF PERU” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

2 weeks of radio silence from a Blogger is a lifetime, but Assembly Square (all 4,000 bricks) has me bunkered down trying to finish the build and review. Thankfully this is the last large model of the year. Tricked you, that couldn’t be further from truth if I tried – Thanks LEGO! My wallet and spare time has to cover the Saturn V Rocket, new Carousel, Old Fishing Store, London Double Decker Bus / UCS Millennium Falcon (big question mark…

LEGO IDEAS OLD FISHING STORE 21310 OFFICIAL IMAGES

LEGO IDEAS OLD FISHING STORE 21310 OFFICIAL IMAGES

I have to admit 2017 is turning out to be a cracker of a year for LEGO Ideas releases! First we had all the hype around the giant Saturn V Rocket (21309) that is now on general sale and now to cap off we have the eagerly anticipated Old Fishing Store 21310. The Old Fishing Store Idea pleasantly surprised the LEGO community (myself included) back in October 2016 when it passed the review panel due to it’s complexity and size. Well after…

LEGO IDEAS – “GILMORE GIRLS” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “GILMORE GIRLS” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

With the first 2017 review group locked away and a distant memory now we move into the second review of 2017 and our first entrant to hit 10,000 supporters – “Gilmore Girls” I’m sorry I have to admit I haven’t got a foggiest who and what the heck Gilmore Girls is. Initially I thought it was that show that my mum inflicted on my as a kid “Golden Girls”, but when I started digging was wrong thankfully (sorry for Golden Girl…

LEGO IDEAS – “MEDIEVAL WATERMILL” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “MEDIEVAL WATERMILL” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

There is still life in the first 2017 review group with “Medieval Watermill” just sneaking into the group by hitting the magically 10,000 supporter mark! The creator fishingtwister has created a very detailed and rustic medieval watermill central to any european village. No detail on piece count, but at a guess it would be fairly high based on the intricate small piece detail. Design comes with 3 x minifigures (family) and the famous and horribly expensive goat (only appeared in…

LEGO IDEAS – “SURF RESCUE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “SURF RESCUE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

“Surf Rescue” is one of those few Ideas that I’ve run on blog on previously. The home grown Ozzy idea is based around our iconic red and yellow Surf Rescue (Surf Life Saving) that patrol and keep our beaches safe. However, this idea goes deeper and contains an important message around being sunsmart – Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen and slap on a hat, Slip, Slop, Slap!  Surf Rescue was tracking well and would have eventually hit 10,000 supporters, however…

LEGO IDEAS FINALLY RESTRICTS PROJECTS BASED ON CURRENT LICENSES

LEGO IDEAS FINALLY RESTRICTS PROJECTS BASED ON CURRENT LICENSES

It’s been a long time coming, but as of a few days ago LEGO Ideas has finally restricted projects based on current licenses. Current projects will still be reviewed should they hit 10,000 Supporters, but unlikely to be approved. All new submissions will be subject to the new LEGO Ideas guidelines (refer to update). The exclusion license list is quite extensive, but was urgently needed to bring back the spirit of LEGO Ideas promoting unique and new Ideas. Happy Building!

LEGO IDEAS – “MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Go Go Power Rangers! – Time to get a big dose of corny 90’s cult TV. Hot off the back “Tron Legacy Light Cycle“, which hit 10,000 supporters only a few days ago, we now have “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers“. The creator bruceywan has reunited the original Power Rangers gang – Zack, Kimberly, Billy, Trini, Jason, and Tommy, along with Zordon and Alpha 5 in the command centre. Each Power Ranger is captured in minifigure form in their applicable coloured suit. Zordon’s…

LEGO IDEAS – “TRON LEGACY LIGHT CYCLE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Finally “Tron Legacy Light Cycle” has hit 10,000 supporters over on LEGO Ideas. This one has been a firm family favorite in my household and it’s been an agonising wait watching this idea slowly creep to the magical 10,000 number. The creator BrickBros UK has designed his set around Sam Flynn’s Light Cycle from the 2010 Disney movie Tron Legacy and mounted it on a Tron grid base. For those who have not seen the movie it’s a must see (shameless plug) not…
