Last month we saw a record-breaking number of LEGO Ideas Review Stage qualifiers that represent an astounding 26 projects in all. Now that we have entered the first month of the next 2020 LEGO Ideas Qualifying Stage, it is highly likely that we might see the same trend again. Because in just more than a month, we now have a total of eight 10K qualifiers that are now guaranteed to be included in the Second 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.
I have to admit that I’ve not covered much of LEGO Ideas during these past few weeks, but seeing how the community is flourishing amidst this pandemic is truly encouraging. I’m pretty sure that the LEGO Ideas Team has a lot in their hands right now.
While waiting for the announcement of our next official LEGO Ideas set which is slated to happen anytime soon, let’s take a look at these next batch of 10K qualifiers. What I also find interesting about these entries is that most of them were submitted during the time when most of the world is still in lockdown, and managed to gather the needed 10,000 votes in just a short period of time. Indeed, our creativity will not be stifled even by this pandemic. Check this out.
Given this trend of submissions and approval, it is probably right to assume that before the Second 2020 LEGO Review Stage actually commences we might have a total number of qualifiers that may outnumber those from the last review stage. We can probably expect a longer turnaround time with regards to their review until such time that LEGO Ideas Review Team can come up with a way to work around such a volume of entries.
