LEGO Review Results for "Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google"

First and foremost, congratulations to GLHTurbo for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO, and toward everyone for all of the support of the "Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google" project! The results of the LEGO Review are in and you can see full details on the LEGO CUUSOO Blog.

Review Results for "Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google"
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 GLHTurbo 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 quarterly 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 CUUSOO projects.

Congratulations on 10,000 Supporters, GLHTurbo!

Congratulations to GLHTurbo and all of the supporters of this LEGO® CUUSOO project. Google™ Android™ fans have spoken. We’ve heard loud and clear that you want to be able to make your own Andy out of LEGO bricks. So, we’ll get to work considering the possibility!

Congratulations on achieving 10,000 supporters. 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, including playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.

Timing of the LEGO Review
This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in March, which will also include all projects that reach 10,000 between now and March 4. For more information about the quarterly review process, see this blog post.

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 "Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google" concept.

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!

Dear GLHTurbo,

Congratulations on passing this milestone 5,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO for the Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google project on LEGO CUUSOO -- and then leaving it in the dust (yes, we know we're late with this comment).

He's really cute, and we like the pose-ability. Andy would make a great desktop model for any Google Android fan.

Best wishes as you continue on your journey to achieving 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO.
