The Third 2017 LEGO Ideas Review qualifying period ended earlier today, and we now have a list of seven projects that qualified for the LEGO Ideas Review Stage. These are the projects that fans supported for, and were able to gather the necessary 10,000 votes during the voting stage. For the first time ever in LEGO Ideas, 3 out of these 7 projects were all credited to Robert Bontenbal (aka RobenAnne), the fan designer of the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310).
It is expected that the LEGO Ideas Review Team will announce the next LEGO Ideas set from this batch sometime this Summer. Take a look at the 7 projects that qualify during this period.
Pop-Up Book by JKBrickworks & Grant_Davis_
Boat House Diner by RobenAnne
The Lighthouse by RobenAnne
The Dive Shop by RobenAnne
Jaguar E-Type Roadster by Ozzyeatingbats
RuPaul’s Brick Race by SeeMarkGeek
The LEGO Christmas Story House by twrt0es
Frankly, most, if not all of these sets, are somehow lacking that ‘wow’ factor that characterized earlier projects like the still to be revealed, Voltron – Defender of the Universe (21311?), Ship in a Bottle (21313), and NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309). I’m placing my cards on the Pop-Up Book and the Jaguar E-Type Roadster, but still, both are relatively underwhelming as compared to the sets that I mentioned.
We just have to see how things will turn out this Summer when the result of this recent review cycle is announced. What LEGO Ideas project do you believe will make it to the cut? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
