Third 2016 LEGO Ideas Review Stage Qualifiers Officially Announced!

The LEGO Ideas blog site has just announced the qualifying projects that made it to the 2016 LEGO Ideas Review Stage, consisting of twelve exciting sets depicting various licenses and MOCs. The clock rang this Monday morning, January 9 at exactly 12:00AM Central European Time or GMT+1 signifying the end of a long leg for most of these projects. These projects represent potential LEGO set concepts that garnered the needed thumbs-up votes from 10,000 supporters between the months of September 2016 until early January of this year. I have many personal favorites from this batch and among these, The Iron Giant by BrettCuv tops my list for this group, and probably the 2nd LEGO Ideas project that I am willing to invest on perchance it becomes an official set, next to Lendy Tayag’s LEGO Ideas Voltron – Defender of the Universe.

This LEGO Ideas Iron Giant Is Absolutely Spot On.

I usually  don’t include a LEGO Ideas project in my need-to-write list unless it has earned that 10K thumbs up from LEGO fans, but this rendition of the Warner Bros. animated film The Iron Giant deserves a special mention. Though the film itself did not find a warm welcome from the general audience when it debuted on the big screen in 1999, it won several awards under the science fiction genre including the BAFTA Children’s Award and has become a beloved animated classic over time. Set in post-war US during the early 1950s, it tells of a story of a gigantic, mysterious alien who crash landed on Earth and befriends a young boy. The film currently got a theatrical and Blu-ray re-release, which included a new documentary about Brad Bird’s making of the film.

An Iron Giant and LEGO fan at heart, LEGO builder BrettCUV decided to render his love for the gentle giant using LEGO bricks and the result is breathtaking. Minifigure in scale, BrettCUV used a LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) to render the Iron Giant in all its fine details using more than 2,000 pieces. Here are his thoughts on his creation.

For this project, I propose that a set be made based on the 1999 Warner Brothers hit animated film The Iron Giant. Known for its beautiful storytelling and masterful animation, this movie is beloved by fans old and young all over the world. I believe that a LEGO product based in this film would not just be popular with consumers, but rather be an enormous success.

Within this project, there would be 5 main characters: The Iron Giant with changeable eyes and weaponry to depict his evil state from the movie, Hogarth Hughes with the alien bolt he finds at the end of the film, Annie Hughes and a coffee pot, Kent Mansley and a fedora, and Dean McCoppin with a coffee cup. The entire build consists of approximately 2,023 pieces, including the Giant, minifigures, and accessories. The Giant’s head rotates and tilts, and his arms, legs, wrists, hips, and ankles are all articulated to both accommodate his size and weight, and allow him to replicate classic poses from the movie.

Currently, BrettCUV’s Iron Giant project has already achieved more than 5,000 supporters over at LEGO Ideas with additional 5K votes needed to make it to the Review Stage. If you think the set is a worthy enough to receive your stamp of approval, then head over at LEGO Ideas and cast your vote. We’ll sure to keep a close eye on this one. What do you think of this project? Does it have the potential to become the next big (pun intended) LEGO Ideas set to hit store shelves?

Here’s a Wrap-up of the Latest LEGO Ideas Projects that Reached 10K Support.

It has been quite a while since the last time that we featured a LEGO Ideas project here at the Brick Show. With Savath_Bunny’s project – the Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD ‘The Bus’ LEGO Set – leading the pack of this third and last trimester of gathering support for this year, we now have four additional projects that won the nod of 10,000 LEGO community members. We’re still a couple of months away before the Third LEGO Ideas Review kicks off and by then, anything can happen. So before the curtain drops on this year’s LEGO Ideas shapers and movers, let’s take a look at the various sets that has made it thus far.

 

Hulkbuster UCS by Raychow

1925001-o_19m8aeta01vre97ph549n3157ec-full

This proposed set is clearly a rehash of Tony Stark’s Hulkbuster as seen in The Hulk Buster Smash (76031). However, unlike the existing set, this UCS-like, 10K LEGO Ideas MOC turned out to be meaner, tougher, and closer to the real thing as seen in the MCU film Avengers: Age of Ultron. Personally, I’m not a fan of the Hulkbuster myself but in case this set turns out to be an official LEGO set, then I wouldn’t mind having this set adorning my shelf. According to Raychow,

Hulkbuster is a wonderful machine and he is so powerful. I decided to build one after the movie and also watched the hottoys show in HK this year. I spent nearly 2 weeks to design and build this lego model and used around 800 pieces to build that. I try my best to make it looks powerful. Since I also like Gundam so I believe I add some gundam design in the model accidentally.

Boat Repair Shop by RobenAnne

2282981-o_1a9pkglpl1v581l99mcd12d8ta07-full

If the saying that ‘lightning strikes twice’ is indeed true, then LEGO master builder Robert Bontenbal (aka RobenAnne) is in for a treat. After his Old Fishing Store has been selected and approved as the next official LEGO Ideas set to hit store shelves next year, Robert’s humble lakeside modular may soon be joined by one of his similar projects. The LEGO community has spoken, and somewhat like an add-on to the Old Fishing Store, Robert’s Boat Repair Shop eventually made it to this year Third Review Stage.

The building consists of roughly 2460 parts and a boat ramp with a crane, work floor, and storage- attic. I used the colors sand yellow and olive green for the building that gives it a realistic feeling. And Siding technique for the clapboards. The roof just sits on the recess so it’s easy to take off and put on.

Lego Store Modular Version by kashaka

2403968-o_1afkdmjmli9v1u17mr1dn71l0a7-full 

This is one LEGO Store set that I surely want to happen. Indeed, we already have the LEGO Brand Retail Store (40145) promotional, but never have we seen it rendered in such modular beauty. From the exterior’s classic look, to kashaka’s ingenious design for storage space at the back, this is one set that we will surely root for.

From a long time ago, I wanted to build a Lego Store with a pick-a-brick section on a wall from the bottom to the ceiling. Finally, I built one based on the concept of a stand-alone Lego Store which is about to open after a long period of renovation work in an old building of New York.

Red Dwarf Lego by Legobob32

2475581-o_1ajpcfdlg1ndf1ic7sd63b1an27-full

This LEGO rendition of the 80s British cult sci-fi classic comedy, the Red Dwarf, will certainly have our inner geek excited. Following the success of the LEGO Ideas Big Bang Theory, comes another set that has the potential of being the next TV show-inspired set. Designed by Legobob32, the set is modeled on the bunk room shared by the shows’ main characters: Dave Lister and Arnold Rimmer. It has minifigs of the four main characters, and two of their parallel-universe alter egos. As a bonus, there’s also the iconic Blue Midget one of the show’s ship-to-surface vessels.

My idea for a potential new Lego set is based on the cult sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf. Set on board the mining ship of the shows namesake. My set features Dave Lister the last human being alive, Arnold Rimmer a Hologram of his dead bunkmate, CAT a creature that evolved from Lister’s pet cat Frankenstein, an Android named Kryten and finally the ships senile computer system Holly. As an added incentive, my set also features the shows two favourite recurring characters, Ace Rimmer and Daune Dibbley!

The Second LEGO Ideas Review period for this year is now almost at its end. With 12 impressive projects vying for the title of being the next LEGO Ideas official set, and one of which, the classic Voltron-Defender of the Universe set by Lendy Tayag topping my list, waiting for January’s announcement seems like forever.

Tales From the LEGO Ideas Crypt Pop-Up Book Is A Perfect Way To Cap Your Halloween Night.

Jason Alleman of JK Brickworks has cooked up another magical creation just in time for Halloween. Hot off the heels of his LEGO trick or treat Candy Thrower, comes another perfect way to cap a fun-filled All Hollow’s Eve. Initially submitted as a LEGO Ideas project, Jason collaborated with Grant Davis to come up with a visually appealing LEGO Pop-Up Book. Using a simple mechanism to make the page ‘come alive’ once opened, and discretely hidden once closed, the LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book can be highly customized to fit in any particular theme or story of your own fancy. In celebration of Halloween, Jason and Grant came up with a pretty neat and eerie rendition of their LEGO Ideas project complete with interactive features such as a ghost coming out of a crypt, a skeleton that can rise up from its grave, and a Dementor hanging out on a fence. Talk about spooky! Watch Jason’s video presentation below.

1613cryptghost 1613cryptskeleton1 1613cryptfence 1613cryptopen

You may learn more about this cool Halloween-themed pop-up book by visiting their website at JKBrickworks. If you like their work and are hoping to see it as an official LEGO set, then you may want to give it a thumbs up at their LEGO Ideas project page by casting your vote. As of this writing, Jason and Grant’s LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book now has more than 5,700 supporters – still halfway through before it can reach the coveted 10K milestone. Here’s how Jason describes their project.

Play out your favorite stories, or create new ones of your own, using the LEGO pop-up book!  Check out the video below to see it in action.

The book features a simple and reliable mechanism that pops up a structure when the book opens, and pulls it back in when the book closes. The main scene and surrounding details can be completely customized to tell any story you can imagine, – a cottage in the woods, jungle ruins, medieval castle, wild west building, space station, pirate ship – the possibilities are endless.

There is also room to store Minifigs and other accessories inside the book, and it features a locking clasp to keep everything securely inside when it is closed.

We suggest the set include enough pieces to build at least two core scenes and include anywhere from 3 to 5 Minifigs. A selection of extra Minifig parts could also be included so the actors can be outfitted for different roles, making them more suited to tell a variety of stories.

lego-ideas-pop-up-book-5 lego-ideas-pop-up-book-4 lego-ideas-pop-up-book-3 lego-ideas-pop-up-book-2lego-ideas-pop-up-book

We hope to see this brick-built pop-up book enter the Third 2016 Review Stage, together with RobenAnne’s Boat Repair Shop and Savath_Bunny’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ‘The Bus’. For the meantime, enjoy a fun-filled evening!

LEGO Ideas Wall-E (21303) and Other Popular Sets Retiring Soon.

In case you’re eyeing for that LEGO Ideas Wall-E or UCS Star Wars Sandcrawler for quite some time already, you may want to make up your mind right away. LEGO’s online store has recently rolled out its next sets slated for retirement anytime soon. All regional sites of shop.LEGO.com, except that of North America as of this writing, have already updated their listing, and have tagged a handful of impressive sets that are retiring soon, including our personal favorite, Wall-E .

lego-retiring-sets

Though the US and Canada regional sites have not listed these sets yet, we can be pretty sure that they will be updated soon. Frankly, LEGO does not readily announce when a set will exactly be retired. We can only have a hint of its impending retirement once it is tagged as ‘Retiring Soon’. If that happens then we can only hope for LEGO to either come up with a sort of a rehash similar to what they did with the LEGO Star Wars Death Star 75159, or click your way through various exorbitant eBay offers. Alternatively, Amazon also offers these sets for sale for good measure – plus at great discounted prices. You may want to check out these links as well.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “The Bus” Reaches 10K Milestone – Qualifies As The First Project for LEGO Ideas’ Third Review Stage.

We recently had a glimpse of this year’s first LEGO Ideas project that made it to the Production Phase, and anytime next year will be seeing Robert Bontenbal’s The Old Fishing Store hitting toy shelves for everyone to enjoy. Hot off the trail of this achievement is another first – we now have our first entry for the LEGO Ideas third Review Stage in the work of Ryan Rydalch’s (Savath_Bunny) Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “The Bus”. His project is based on the popular Marvel mini-series that is now on its fourth season and currently being aired on ABC. The fictional peacekeeping and spy agency is part of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and shares several parts of its storyline in the films. Here’s what Rydalch has to say about his LEGO Ideas project:

With extraordinary sets like Spider-man, Thor and Wolverine hitting the market as traditional superheroes, why not send a message to children that, “Not all heroes are super, some are just awesome.”

The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Bus” LEGO Set would allow buyers to create their own inspired missions for the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. By featuring the fully functional flying command center for our agents, Agent Coulson’s team can track down any Hydra scum wherever they may be hiding. In addition to the stealthy Bus, this set also includes Agent Coulson’s favorite collectable: Lola, the flying red corvette!  

The S.H.I.E.L.D. Globemaster formally known as the CXD 23 Airborne Mobile Command Station (aka “The Bus”) is divided into five separate building platforms that when linked together create the plane.

Kudos for Ryan’s work, and we hope to see his LEGO Ideas Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ‘The Bus’ be eventually part of LEGO’s Marvel Super Heroes theme. What do you think about this LEGO Ideas project? Do you think it will get the seal of approval from LEGO’s top designers? Share us what you think in the comments section below.

And Our First 2016 LEGO Ideas Set Is…

Following the teaser of LEGO Ideas over at their blog site regarding the announcement of the results of the first 2016 Review Stage, we now have our victor among 9 hopefuls: The Old Fishing Store by Robert Bontenbal (RobenAnne) was announced as the next LEGO Ideas project that eventually received the thumbs up from LEGO’s Review Team at the LEGO HQ in Billund, Denmark. Here are additional photos from the Old Fishing Store as originally submitted by Bontenbal. Take note that this is not yet the final model as offered by LEGO.

Bontenbal’s ‘Old Fishing Store’ is among the nine projects that reached the 10K supporter milestone between January and May of this year, including the Fossil Museum by whatpumpkin, Gingerbread House by Swan Dutchman, the Jedi High Council Chamber by lojaco, Jurassic Park Visitor Centre by LDiEgo, Modular Train Station by LegoWolf, Particle Accelerator by JKBrickworks, Rolling BB-8 by mjsmiley and artbot138, and Johnny Five by PepaQuin.

Here’s the announcement as delivered by Charlotte of the LEGO Ideas Review Team straight from Billund

Fishing has always been a central point in Robert Bontenbal’s life. This big passion, in combination with his day job as an architectural draughtsman, is what came together to create this beautiful model that is packed with lovely details and play opportunities. Its creative building style represents a unique design expression for LEGO houses that we’re all very excited about. We’re still working out the final product design, pricing and availably for the Old Fishing Store, so check back on LEGO Ideas in 2017 for details.

Congratulations once again to Robert Bontenbal and to his Old Fishing Store set and we’re excited to see this on shelves by Fall of next year. The Second LEGO Ideas Review Stage is currently on going with 12 projects that qualified within the period of May and September.

We seem to have a large number of candidates this time and we’re keeping our fingers crossed for our own personal favorites like the Voltron – Defender of the Universe by len_d69, Addams Family Mansion by afol777, and Merchant’s House by bigboy99899. We all hope for the best as the approved project (s) will be announced early next year.
