It has been an event that’s been hyped so many times before in previous posts here on The Brick Show. For every instant that a new submission on LEGO Ideas achieved the coveted 10K support milestone, we reminded you of what’s coming. And finally, it has. The candidates are assembled.
As the LEGO Ideas Third 2017 Review Stage finally winds up its work and makes ready to announce a new official Ideas set (if any), the deadline for the First 2018 Review Stage has finally elapsed, automatically starting the assessment period of the 10K-supported Ideas submissions that made the cutoff.
To sum things up, there are ten entries on LEGO Ideas that got the support of 10,000 members on the platform, that’ll be included in the First Review Stage for this year. The Brick Show has covered most if not all of the lucky submissions that we’ve listed down below.
Embraer A-29 Super Tucano
Mystery Science Theater 3000
In a surprising turn of events, the last entry, a LEGO build of a BMW motorcycle, managed to get on the list despite BMW previously being included in a list of “restricted licenses” by the toy company. It can be assumed that restriction is no longer in effect.
Meanwhile, we still have to wait on the official announcement by the LEGO Ideas Review Panel as to which submission in the 2017 Third Review Stage will make the cut. Even further, there’s still no word as to the Ideas winner “Voltron – Defender of the Universe” set which passed review in August 2017. If LEGO is keeping the release date secret, the best time to reveal it would be on the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con.
