LEGO Review Results for The Vintage Motorcycle of BMW R60/2

First and foremost, congratulations to maximecheng03 for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas, and toward everyone for all of the support of the The Vintage Motorcycle of BMW R60/2 project! The results of the LEGO Review are in and you can see full details on the LEGO Ideas Blog.

Review Results for The Vintage Motorcycle of BMW R60/2
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 maximecheng03 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, maximecheng03!

Dear maximecheng03, 

Vroooooooooom!

First of all, we wish you a big congratulations on joining the exclusive 10K Club with your incredibly detailed Vintage Motorcycle of BMW R60/2. It always blows our minds to see fans who can use LEGO bricks to recreate real life objects with such accuracy and we're not in doubt that this is what caught the attention of your many fans as well.

You can take your foot of the gas and take a well deserved break as 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 May

This project qualifies for the First 2018 Review, which includes projects that reach 10,000 supporters between early January and early May 2018. 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 it can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the The Vintage Motorcycle of BMW R60/2.

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.
