We’re thrilled to share with you the latest LEGO Ideas results, this time for the third 2014 LEGO Review.
Nine projects qualified for the third 2014 LEGO Review between September of last year and early January. The LEGO Ideas Review Board has evaluated these projects and ultimately decided to green-light one project to become an official LEGO set, and we're still considering another one. Here are those results:
LEGO Ideas #013 Labyrinth Marble Maze
Huge congratulations to LEGO Ideas member JKBrickworks, whose Labyrinth Marble Maze is the latest project to be selected as a future LEGO Ideas set! Jason Allemann is a Canadian LEGO artist who re-discovered the hobby when the LEGO Group launched MINDSTORMS and acquired the Star Wars license in the late 1990’s. Today he builds lifelike sculptures, mechanical models, and micro-scale spaceships and architecture models. We’re particularly excited about this project; it’s a great interactive table-top game that you can customize to your own liking.
Design, pricing, and availability
We’re still working out the final product design, pricing and availably for the Labyrinth Marble Maze, so check back on LEGO Ideas later this year for details.
Still considering F7A Hornet
The LEGO Review Board is still considering the F7A Hornet model by nosmigon. Our final decision will take some time, and we’ll share details when we’re able.
All other projects from the Third 2014 LEGO Review will not be produced
The LEGO Review Board has evaluated each project according to our decision criteria. We’ve decided that all other concepts in the Second 2014 review period will unfortunately not be produced as LEGO sets. This decision, however, does in no way take away from the incredible talent put into these projects or the passion supporters have shown.
How do we make these decisions?
Getting 10,000 votes on a project is an extraordinary accomplishment in and of itself but it’s really just the beginning of a journey. After reaching 10.000 votes the project will enter the LEGO Review stage.
During the LEGO Review, a team of specialists within The LEGO Group – including LEGO set designers, marketing and business representatives, and other relevant team members – investigate and evaluate the project to determine its potential as a LEGO set. This involves analyzing the votes and information you give us about your project as well as looking at things like playability, safety, and fit within the LEGO brand.
This takes a while and the timing varies because of all the different factors involved in the decision process. Every potential LEGO product, including those developed internally, goes through a process like this and must meet similar standards.
The LEGO Review Board makes all final decisions on which new sets the LEGO Group will release based on LEGO Ideas projects.
Next LEGO Review Results coming Fall 2015
The First 2015 LEGO Review is well underway, and you can expect results in fall this year. We’re also looking forward to sharing more details about upcoming sets The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who, and WALL-E when we are able. Until then, happy building!
