Check Out the First Qualifiers for the Second 2021 LEGO Ideas Review Stage

Second 2021 LEGO Ideas Review

The First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review Stage started on a high note with the announcement of yet another record-breaking 57 product ideas. And hot on the heels of this batch of qualifiers are the first product ideas that managed to enter the Second 2021 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.

The Movie Set by Castor-Troy, and Imperial Island Fort by 10K Club Member BrickHammer, are the two initial product ideas that gained the support of more than 10,000 LEGO enthusiasts, qualifying them to enter the Second 2021 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. The former features 8 facades and movie props that give your favorite movie that funny LEGO twist; while the latter takes its inspiration from the classic LEGO Pirates Eldorado Fortress (6276) from 1989.

The Movie Set product idea is a cool way to bring your minifigure filming up to a new level with its diverse selection of brick-built background props. And fans of the classic LEGO Pirates theme will certainly appreciate the Imperial Island Fort if perchance this MOC qualifies to become an official LEGO Ideas set, similar to its predecessor the LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322).

Read on for more details about these Second 2021 LEGO Ideas Review Stage qualifiers, and what their respective creators have to say. You may also click on their links to know more about these entries. Congratulations to their respective builders as well!

Movie Set by Castor-Troy

The set includes 8 facades, movie props, and figurines, for a total of 2900 pieces. This creation is not based on any license. We made some visuals to suggest ideas of presentation and playability. The facades are 16 studs wide and include supports at the back that allows them to stand on their own, and to be combined at will. We focused on the aesthetics and design of the facades while making sure that the set offers a lot of possibilities and playability for the AFOLs :
  • For those who like to display their LEGO set, the Movie Set will be an optimal choice, as it makes optimal use of pieces for that purpose
  • The set can be used to reproduce scenes from cult movies by combining the different facades,
  • For those who like to take pictures or make brickfilms, the set would make a great background scenery
  • You can make a tracking shot with your smartphone over 1 meter long, thanks to a cart specially designed for that purpose,
  • For those who have a LEGO city, the Movie Set would make a very nice background
  • Finally, for those who like big LEGO buildings, all facades can be put together to form a single building that would fit well together with other modular buildings.
Imperial Island Fort by BrickHammer

The Idea
Since I was a child I have been a big fan of pirates and the old pirate Lego theme! Now as an adult I am still an avid fan of history! This small island fortress is therefore supposed to be a blend of nostalgic classic Lego red coat fortresses like the Eldorado Fortress and actual real-life Caribbean architecture!
The Build
The island consists of a big main castle on top of a rocky cliff and a pier beneath it. The castle contains a gatehouse tower and the governor’s house!
The pier beneath the castle is fortified with 2 cannon bastions to guard the island from incoming pirate ships or Armada attacks!
About 1500 pieces.
