First 2017 LEGO Ideas Review Qualifiers Announced – Eleven Projects Qualify!

The LEGO Ideas blog site has announced the first projects to qualify for 2017’s LEGO Ideas Review Stage, consisting of eleven exciting builds depicting several retro-themed sets from the 80s and 90s. The qualifying period ended Monday morning, May 1st at 12AM CET signifying the end of a long journey for most of these projects. These projects represent potential LEGO set concepts that garnered the needed thumbs-up votes from 10,000 supporters between the months of January until early May of this year. I have a few personal favorites from among these projects, particularly the SEGA Classic Arcade Machines by SpacySmoke, and Venetian Houses by McMarco.

Here are the rest of the LEGO Ideas projects that made it to this year’s first Review Stage in no particular order.

The results of the Third 2016 LEGO Review Stage are still on its way, with 13 awesome projects waiting for the coveted thumbs up signal from the LEGO Ideas Design Team.

Among these projects, is one that I’ve been cheering on from the sidelines since it qualified last 2016. I’m still crossing our fingers for Voltron: Defender of the Universe by Lendy Tayag and hopefully we’ll here words from the LEGO Ideas Review Team by June or July.
