Following the success of the Mini-fig Scale Project Gemini earlier this month, we now have our next 2020 LEGO Ideas First Review Stage qualifier. The Retro Bowling Alley by Astronaut Avila managed to get 10,000 fan support over at the LEGO Ideas platform, effectively taking a step closer to becoming an official LEGO set.
If you recall, fan builder Astronaut Avila is also the person behind another 10K achieving project which is the Modular Arcade during the LEGO Ideas 2018 First Review Stage. Though this retro-styled gaming hub did not manage to best the rest of the entries dominated by now official LEGO Ideas sets The Flintstones (21316) and Tree House (21318), I am hopeful that this next entry will eventually get the thumbs-up approval of the LEGO Ideas Design Team.
Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect from this LEGO Ideas project.
