LEGO Review Results for Medieval Market Street

First and foremost, congratulations to AlexP for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas, and toward everyone for all of the support of the Medieval Market Street project! The results of the LEGO Review are in and you can see full details on the LEGO Ideas Blog.

Review Results for Medieval Market Street
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 AlexP 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, AlexP!

It's been such a treat to see the community re-discover this amazing project! This beautiful model appeals to castle and modular fans alike, and gives a view of life in a busy marketplace in the middle ages. You've managed to fit a lot of activity into this set, and we're still wowed by the little details and parts usage.

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 2015 Review, which includes projects that reach 10,000 supporters between early January and early May. 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 Medieval Market Street.

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 AlexP,

Congratulations at passing 5,000 supporters, you're over halfway there!

It's almost as if the Creator Expert team got in their time machine and built a modular street from the middle ages! We love all of the little details, especially the unexpected parts like the pink mohawk masquerading as a vegetable, and the wanted posters no doubt dating this model after the advent of the printing press.

While we're impressed by the model's detail and play features, and we're very much looking forward to reviewing it, know that models of this size are quite complex to produce. Once the project reaches 10,000 supporters and enters the review stage, our team will evaluate it and see it's feasible to maintain the essence of the model while ensuring it is cost effective as a LEGO Ideas set.

Best wishes as you continue on to 10,000 supporters!

Congratulations on 1,000+ Supporters!

No medieval city would be complete without a busy marketplace, and this project captures that hassle and bustle while also showing the quality of the creation. Fantastic!

Good luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!
