LEGO Review Results for Ghostbusters HQ

Review Results for Ghostbusters HQ
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 Sergio512 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, Sergio512!

Dear Sergio512,

Hey, does this pole still work? Wow this place is great, when can we move in?

Your Ghostbusters HQ would compliment the 21108 LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set well and give it a nice home. Ghostbusters fans have spoken, it's clear that you'll take it (despite the serious metal fatigue and substandard wiring). Now it's time for the Ghostbusters HQ to advance to the LEGO Review stage.

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 September

This project qualifies for the Second 2014 Review, which includes projects that reach 10,000 supporters between early May and early September. 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 the Ghostbusters HQ.

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!

There’s something strange in the neighborhood…it’s an awesome Ghostbusters project on the fast track to 10,000 supporters! With a lab for testing slime, a ghost storage facility, and even a pool table, what more could the ghost catching team need?

You’re more than halfway there, keep up with the supernatural elimination and  working toward 10,000 supporters! 


Congratulations on 1,000+ Supporters!

As though traveling on a river of slime, you've taken the 1,000 benchmark and raced right past it! It's hard to imagine a more fitting headquarters for the new Ghostbusters LEGO Minifigures and Ecto-1. 

Keep up the good work on your journey to save the lives of millions of registered voters...and reach 10,000 supporters!
