LEGO Review Results for Disney Princess Frozen: Elsa's Ice Palace

First and foremost, congratulations to Fohzen for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas, and toward everyone for all of the support of the Disney Princess Frozen: Elsa's Ice Palace project! The results of the LEGO Review are in and you can see full details on the LEGO Ideas Blog.

Review Results for Disney Princess Frozen: Elsa's Ice Palace
Our team has thoroughly considered the possibility of releasing this project as a LEGO set according to the criteria of the LEGO Review. Unfortunately the LEGO Review Board has decided that we will not produce this project as a set.

Thank you to Fohzen for the passion and creativity that went into this project, and to all of you who voted so that we would have the opportunity to consider this as a potential LEGO set. We’re sorry to deliver this disappointing news.

How do we arrive at our decisions?
By gaining 10,000 supporters, a fan-submitted project moves from the Idea Stage to the Review Stage, where it earns the opportunity to be considered as a future LEGO® set in a process called the “LEGO Review.” Gaining 10,000 Supporters is just the first step in this process.

A "LEGO Review Board" composed of professional set designers, product managers, marketing representatives, and other key team members examine each qualified project. They build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product; including factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product, including those developed internally, goes through a similar process and must meet the same standards.

The amount of time this takes varies due to all the factors involved. Unfortunately, this process sometimes means that well-conceived projects that gain just-as-passionate followings have to be turned down. Please note that the LEGO Review Board makes all final decisions on which new sets the LEGO Group will release based on LEGO Ideas projects.


Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, Fohzen!

When it comes to this project, we just can't "Let it go" and why would we? You've created an ice palace in a completely unique style, and captivated the Disney fan in all of us! From your updates, it's clear how much you love this film, and that shines through in your project. Somethings are worth melting for...

Of course, we remind you and your supporters that Frozen is an active license with The LEGO Group, which unfortunately means this project has a smaller chance of passing the Review than other projects. See the Project Guidelines and House Rules for further information.

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 First 2015 Review, which includes projects that reach 10,000 supporters between early January and early May. 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, and can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on Disney Princess Frozen: Elsa's Ice Palace.

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 5,000+ Supporters!

Do you want to build an ice castle? Over 5,000 people do! Even in summer, the popularity of this project didn’t melt away. You’ve done a great job keeping supporters engaged with comments and updates, keep up the good work!

Remember that Disney is an active license with the LEGO Group, and while we don’t want to discourage you, please keep in mind that a project based on an existing LEGO license has a smaller chance of passing the LEGO Review than other projects. See the Project Guidelines and House Rules for further information. 

Good luck as you journey though ice and snow to 10,000 supporters!


Congratulations on 1,000 Supporters!
