Rolls-Royce UltraFan® - The Ultimate Jet Engine
Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, DanCodd!
Congrats on reaching the 10,000 supporter milestone in just 6 short months! The mechanical intricacies no doubt caught and held the attention of LEGO fans all over, while others were awed by it's educational or display potential. This has been a great step in the direction of learning what goes on under the hood of jet engines that fly us around the world.
You can throttle down though now, as we 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 2018 Review, which includes projects that reach 10,000 supporters between early May and early September 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 Rolls-Royce UltraFan® - The Ultimate Jet Engine.
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.
