Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project

Dear YodaTheHutt,

First, thank you for building and submitting your very well done The Shire (Hobbiton).

We have chosen to archive your project and no longer consider it for production based on its overlap with newly revealed Lord of the Rings BrickHeadz sets, which was developed independently of LEGO Ideas submissions. Your project will remain visible on LEGO Ideas, but in a status where it can no longer be supported or commented on. This way fans can still admire your creation.

As it typically takes 12-18 months to develop and release a LEGO product, situations like this are likely where a LEGO Ideas project overlaps a product in development. The closer an Ideas project is based on an existing LEGO license or product line, the greater this risk will be. For more info, please refer to the LEGO Ideas Guidelines regarding overlaps with our product pipeline.

We're sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news, and we hope to see more projects from you soon!


Congratulations on 100 supporters! You've earned an extra 365 days.

You've passed the first milestone and reached 100 supporters within the first 60 days. As a reward, here's a boost of one year (365 days) to reach 1,000 supporters. Best of luck as you continue to rally support for your project.
