LEGO Review Results for Invisible Hand
First and foremost, congratulations to LDiEgo for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas, and toward everyone for all of the support of the Invisible Hand project! The results of the LEGO Review are in and you can see full details on the LEGO Ideas Blog.
Review Results for Invisible Hand
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 LDiEgo 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, LDiEgo!
Congratulations on reaching 10,000 supporters with your Invisible Hand model!
You've built a beautiful ship, and packed a lot of playability into your proposal. We really like how the model comes apart in sections to reveal key parts of the interior as a playset ... and, who are we kidding, so one can re-enact the ship's crash landing.
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 September
This project qualifies for the Second 2014 Review period, 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 Invisible Hand project.
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!
"Activate ray shields!" Such an impressive creation for an impressive ship! We love the detail you've put into designing and listing all the different elements of this. Since the Invisible Hand was used in so many different scenes in The Clone Wars, it's amazing to think that with the figures and elements you've included here, a builder really could re-create every scene involving this ship!
Good luck as you journey to defeat The Empire....and reach 10,000 supporters!
Congratulatory message from LEGO for +500 votes
Congratulations on all of the support! You did a great job building the Invisible Hand and writing up the case for us to include this as a capital ship in the LEGO Star Wars line. We enjoy that you included several micro scale models that will add to the play experience and allow buyers of this set to re-create elements of the story that featured this ship.
Please understand that this initial green light does not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters. Until then, we wish you the best of luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!
