LEGO Review Results for UCS All Terrain Armoured Transport

First and foremost, congratulations to Cavegod for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas, and toward everyone for all of the support of the UCS All Terrain Armoured Transport project! The results of the LEGO Review are in and you can see full details on the LEGO Ideas Blog.

Review Results for UCS All Terrain Armoured Transport
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 Cavegod 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, Cavegod!

Dear Cavegod,

Impressive. Most impressive. This behemoth of a model has blasted through 10,000 supporters a whole lot faster than an AT-AT walks! At 6,000 pieces, this project is one of the largest LEGO Ideas project to make it this far, good work.

It looks like this time you've overtaken Echo Base and advanced 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, 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 UCS All Terrain Armoured Transport.

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 Cavegod,

Congratulations on reaching the halfway point, now prepare to target the main generator. This is a beautifully built large-scale AT-AT model, and if we had to bet, the armor you used is too strong for blasters.

While we welcome projects based on current licenses like Star Wars in the LEGO Review, 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.

Good luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!

Congratulations on 1,000+ supporters!

No Jedi could stand a chance against this UCS AT-AT, and no Star Wars fan’s collection would be complete without one! Whether deep down you’re a Rebel or on the side of the Galactic Empire, it’s hard not to appreciate this build.

We wish you good luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!
