    Over the last few weeks the LEGO Ideas Test Lab "Fourth Build" Challenge has progressed with over 570 entries received before the deadline closed. Fast forward a couple of weeks and the entries just went through an Expert Panel review, which consisted of LEGO Creator representatives selecting a Top 10 from the remaining 40 entries that were left after the early voting phase.  

    Today the challenge moved into one of the final stages, consisting of the "Brick Vote" in which users can use the "Bricks" they've earnt to support their favourite build. The Brick Vote will help determine the Fan's Choice winner.  

    We've been incredibly impressed by the sheer creativity and quality that has been shown by all the entries, which has really demonstrated the endless possibilities of the LEGO brick. Congratulations to all who have participated with their wonderful entries!

    If you haven't already seen the Top 10 finalists then make sure to check out the great builds below.

  • Announcing the winner of LEGO Rebrick Build Your Favorite Adventure Time™ Character Contest!

    What time is it? Winner time! LEGO Rebrick recently held a contest to build your favorite Adventure Time™ character that’s missing from the LEGO Ideas 21308 Adventure Time set. We received a whopping 203 entries … totes sweet! Now it’s time to show you the winners.

    Grand Prize Winner: APTWE By pix027
    Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant cannot be controlled, he must let you have control.

    Runner Up: Island Lady by L-DI-EGO
    “This island doesn’t have a lady… This island IS a lady!” From “The Party’s Over, Isla de Señorita” (s5, ep22). I have downsized (6.38cm tall x 17.56 cm wide) the scale of this unusual character to fit with the contest rules.

    Runner Up: Huntress Wizard by Scarlet_fantastic
    "Exceptional beasts like us cannot fall in love—that is the secret of ordinary people.” Huntress Wizard appears here in her daytime, forest colourway. With her antlered hood, jagged-edged cape and a quiver full of magic she’ll never cease to be extraordinary.

    Check out the winning entries on LEGO Rebrick, and be sure to congratulate Grand Prize winner pix027 on their awesome Adventure Time guitar, signed by the cast!

    • 2016 second review

    As we mentioned in our blog post early this month, we were running a little behind schedule as we were still finalising the results of the Second 2016 Review Results. But the wait is officially over! 

    Over the past several months, the LEGO Review Board has carefully reviewed 12 fascinating projects that reached 10,000 supporters between May and September 2016, our second review qualification period of 2016. Lise, our Marketing Manager, shares the results:

     

    Women of NASA
    A big congratulations to 20tauri on becoming the next official LEGO Ideas fan designer! As a science editor and writer, with a strong personal interest for space exploration as well as the history of women in science and engineering, Maia Weinstock’s Women of NASA project was a way for her to celebrate accomplished women in the STEM professions. In particular those who’ve made a big impact through their work at NASA.

    We’re really excited to be able to introduce Maia’s Women of NASA set for its inspirational value as well as build and play experience.

     

     

    Design, pricing, and availability

    We’re still working out the final product design, pricing and availably for the Women of NASA set, so check back on LEGO Ideas in late 2017 or early 2018 for more details.

     

    Still considering Voltron - Defender of the Universe

    The LEGO Review Board is still considering the Voltron - Defender of the Universe project by len_d69. Our final decision will take a little extra time, and we’ll share an update in the Third 2016 Review Results announcement.

     

     

    Next Review Results Summer 2017

    The next batch of LEGO Ideas projects are already in review. We’re considering these projects that reached 10,000 supporters between September 2016 and January 2017 as possible future LEGO sets. We’ll share results of the Third 2016 LEGO review period in the summer of 2017.

    • second 2016 review results

    We know that, as with all review result announcements, you all are waiting in anticipation and counting the days until the next one. While we strive to be able annouce these results at consistent dates throughout the year, bumps in the road do occur when dealing with things that are outside of what we can influence and control. 

    This means we're a little behind, as we would have liked to reveal the results around the end of January or start of February. Don't worry though, the results are coming. In fact, we'll be shooting our video in early February and expect to have the video and results ready for your viewing pleasure toward the end of the month! 

    The good news is...we've got good news! ;-)

    Stay tuned!
