The community has spoken and this diner has been voted the most popular in all of the lands! What's the secret? The tasty shakes? The crisp fries? Or perhaps that beautifully retro design? Regardless, we wish to congratulate you on your great accomplishment that comes just in time for Christmas and on a day where a grand total of 3 projects hit the 10,000 supporter mark. That's awesome! Your model's unique 50's style includes some fun play opportunities whilst including wonderful LEGO humour at the same time - "Tips welcome. Advice is not".
Time to kick back and relax through the holidays as 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 January
This project qualifies for the Third 2016 Review, which includes projects that reach 10,000 supporters between early September 2016 and early January 2017. For more information about the LEGO review process, please see the Project Guidelines and House Rules.
The review is a thorough process and from its start it can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the 1950's Diner.
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.
Wow! By passing 5,000 supporters, you've made it into the upper ranks on LEGO Ideas. Since you've passed the halfway point, here's another 6 months (182 days) to reach the final milestone of 10,000 supporters. Best of luck as you aim to finish your journey strong.
Your project is so well made that 1,000 of your new best friends have supported you within your first year. As a reward, you've earned an extra 6 months (182 days) to reach your next milestone of 5,000 supporters. Best of luck as you continue to rally support for your project.
