We’re very excited to release Alatariel and GlenBricker's The Big Bang Theory project as a LEGO Ideas set! The final design, pricing and release date are still being worked out. For more information, see the LEGO Ideas Blog.
Thanks to the support of Big Bang Theory fans around the world, you've reached 10,000 supporters. You've done your experiments, now we'll do ours.
We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.
What happens now?
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A "LEGO Review Board" composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We'll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.
The LEGO Review Begins in May
This project qualifies for the Second 2014 Review beginning in May and ending in September. For more information about the LEGO review process, see this knowledge base article
The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the Big Bang Theory concept.
When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.
We will post follow-up information and our decision here.
Congratulations on rocketing past the halfway point to 10,000 supporters. Again, your rendition of Sheldon's apartment could provide endless hours of re-enacting classic scenes from the hit TV series.
Best of luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters! As they say, the more the merrier (and in this case it isn't a false equivalency).
I have a two-part comment. A: Are you kidding? and B: Seriously, are you freaking kidding me? This is an AMAZING playset and so perfectly captures all of the geeky goodness in Big Bang Theory. BAZINGA!
Best of luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!
