Voltron - Defender Of The Universe
We’re very excited to release len_d69's Voltron - Defender of the Universe project as our next LEGO Ideas set! The final design, pricing and release date are still being worked out. For more information, see the LEGO Ideas Blog.
Congratulations again to len_d69 for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas, and toward everyone for all your support for the Voltron - Defender Of The Universe project.
As of today, we’re still looking into the possibility of releasing a set based on the Voltron - Defender Of The Universe project. Once we have a decision, we’ll share it with you here and on the LEGO Ideas blog.
Let’s Go Voltron Force!!! Voltron has shown itself to be a determined opponent supported by the 10,000 strong supporters gathering from all corners of the internet and driven by a common passion for the classic Voltron: Defender of the Universe animated TV show. You’ve done a fantastic job of rallying the troops by adapting an iconic figure into LEGO bricks, but doing so through a beautifully built design that focuses on a unique building experience that delivers plenty of play value.
We are delighted to 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 2016 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 it can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the Voltron - Defender Of The Universe.
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.
Wow! By passing 5,000 supporters, you've made it into the upper ranks on LEGO Ideas. Since you've passed the halfway point, here's another 6 months (182 days) to reach the final milestone of 10,000 supporters. Best of luck as you aim to finish your journey strong.
Your project is so well made that 1,000 of your new best friends have supported you within your first year. As a reward, you've earned an extra 6 months (182 days) to reach your next milestone of 5,000 supporters. Best of luck as you continue to rally support for your project.
