LEGO IDEAS – “THE DIVE SHOP” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “THE DIVE SHOP” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

The designer “RobenAnne” creator of LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) is now well and truly dominating this LEGO Ideas review round. 3 of the 5 Ideas to hit 10,000 Supporters are his own designs and that is purely down to his loyal fan base who have been charmed and impressed with the design of his hugely successful Old Fishing Store (21310). Ironically I haven’t experienced building the set yet, but mine is finally on it’s way (stuck at the infamous Alexandria Business…

LEGO IDEAS – “JAGUAR E-TYPE ROADSTER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “JAGUAR E-TYPE ROADSTER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Firstly sorry! – I’ve been so busy writing up my review on Assembly Square and reporting on all the new 2018 sets that one of the latest LEGO Idea sets to hit 10,000 supporters slipped through my radar last week! After the disappointment of the Land Rover 4×4 not making it through to production it now looks like we have another attempt at a classic British motor vehicle. This time round it’s the 20th century JAGUAR E-Type Roadster 2 series trying…

LEGO IDEAS – “THE LIGHTHOUSE” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Looks like “RobenAnne” creator of LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) wants to dominate the next LEGO Ideas review round! Less than a week after “Boat House Diner” hit 10,000 Supporters, then BOOM along comes his latest outing – The Lighthouse! After the Old Fishing Store I have to admit this is a favorite of mine. Of course Robert has kept the rustic style running through all his fishing village theme, but the Lighthouse is a real centre piece and has lots…

LEGO IDEAS – “BOAT HOUSE DINER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO Ideas seems to be operating a little bit like the old waiting for a bus analogy – “Waiting ages for a bus when one finally comes along so do three others” After a big week of LEGO Ideas news we already have our second LEGO Idea through to the third 2017 LEGO Ideas review and hot off the heals of “Pop-Up Book” Now if you’re thinking this looks familiar you would be correct, titled “Boat House Diner” this project…

LEGO IDEAS – “POP-UP BOOK” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “POP-UP BOOK” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

The second 2017 LEGO Ideas review is now locked away and a distant memory. Finally we can move on and what better way to kickstart the third 2017 LEGO Ideas review, than a project that I truly love, is original and reflects the spirit of LEGO Ideas. The LEGO Idea is titled “Pop-Up Book” and is the creation of JKBrickworks (collaboration between Grant Davis and Jason Allemann). What I love is it’s such an original idea. The book (made of LEGO of course)…

LEGO IDEAS – SECOND 2017 REVIEW QUALIFYING PERIOD NOW CLOSED

LEGO IDEAS – SECOND 2017 REVIEW QUALIFYING PERIOD NOW CLOSED

Well that’s it the qualifying period for the second 2017 LEGO Ideas review panel has now closed and we have surprisingly slim pickings with only 6 projects making it into the review and the greater 10k club. It’s a difficult group for me I can’t say any of the projects really excitement me sadly. If I had to choose one I would would go for “The Wonders Of Peru” for its originality. Project summary below: Nasa Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower…

LEGO IDEAS – “NASA SATURN-V LAUNCH UMBILICAL TOWER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “NASA SATURN-V LAUNCH UMBILICAL TOWER” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Looks like the success of the LEGO Ideas Saturn V Rocket (21309) is spawning lots of related LEGO Ideas projects. After seeing the recent NASA Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale) hit 10,000 supporters, next off the rank is a LEGO Idea directly related to the Saturn V Rocket – Nasa Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower. Nasa Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower is the brainchild of Valerie Roche (Whatsuptoday) and Emmanuel Urquieta (Spacemd) who worked collaboratively to design the NASA Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower at 1/110 scale…

LEGO IDEAS – “NASA SPACE SHUTTLE (SATURN V SCALE)” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

LEGO IDEAS – “NASA SPACE SHUTTLE (SATURN V SCALE)” HITS 10,000 SUPPORTERS

Finally something to get me a little bit excited about this bunch of LEGO Ideas, though still not quite in the magical imaginative and unique category yet. The 5th LEGO Idea to make the second 2017 review panel launches off the back of the recent massive success of LEGO Ideas Saturn V Rocket (21309). This Idea takes the same scale (approx. 1:111) and applies it to a modernised LEGO Nasa Space Shuttle configured in its vertical takeoff configuration with Separating…

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…
