LEGO Ideas Untitled Goose Game Qualifies for the First 2020 Review Stage

I guess this proves how famous this awful goose is. In just less than a month when it first debuted as a LEGO product idea, the LEGO Ideas Untitled Goose Game is now a step closer to becoming an official LEGO set after it garnered 10,000 fan votes on the LEGO Ideas platform. Based on the smash-hit video game developed by House House, this brick rendition is the creation of  LEGO fan builder A Fellow Player that shows how one horrible goose can make life hilariously difficult for our hapless gardener.

Untitled Goose Game

The worldwide phenomenon of 2019 comes to LEGO! Enjoy life as a destructive goose in a small garden. Watch out for the gardener and his many tools! Props Included: Jam, Apple, Sprinkler, Goose Sign, Rose Bush, Carrot, Loose Foliage, Spoon, Shovel, Sun Hat, Hammer, Ice Chest, and a Key. Preferably, there would be more than one minifigure, but no others fit this scene. Some difficulties came with the printing and the post will be updated when they are fixed. 

The LEGO Ideas Untitled Goose Game is the third qualifier to make it for the First 2020 Review Stage, following our first entry of the year, Mary Poppins, Cherry Tree Lane, and the Tesla Cybertruck.

This Is Your Chance to See the Untitled Goose Game Become a LEGO Set

Indie game developer House House may find itself in partnership with LEGO, and it all depends on the collective effort of LEGO fans. In just a span of 4 months, the groundbreaking slapstick/stealth/sandbox video game with a no less attractive title, Untitled Goose Game, is now closer to the possibility of having an official LEGO set.

A LEGO fan that goes by the name A Fellow Player over at the LEGO Ideas platform has submitted a product idea that skyrocketed in votes as much as its game counterpart. If the name sounds familiar to you then you might remember that he/she is the person behind that delicious-looking Tricaketops that I featured last August. The LEGO Ideas Untitled Goose Game is A Fellow Player’s attempt to bring into LEGO brick form that horrible goose that most of us fell in love with.

In fact, the LEGO Ideas Untitled Goose Game also won the heart of the LEGO Ideas Team so much so that it even became a staff pick. In just 4 days, it already reached more than 50% of the votes required to hit the 10K milestone. Here’s what A Fellow Player has to say about his/her entry.

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

LEGO VIPs who are eyeing to get the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) will be happy to know that LEGO is throwing in a limited-edition Space Patch for every purchase of the said set. If you remember back in May last year that LEGO also offered a similar promo as an incentive to those who bought the LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander (10266). I’m not really into collecting patches but if I will have my way, I will still prefer to have a free and exclusive LEGO set to go along with my new LEGO Ideas ISS. This latest Space Patch will be available from February 1 to 9 both online and in-store or until supplies last.

 

Free LEGO Hidden Side Drag Racer (40408)

Promo period: January 24 – February 9, 2020

If you’re planning to get the LEGO Ideas ISS, then be sure to check this next freebie in your cart. The LEGO Hidden Side Drag Racer (40408) promo has gone live already starting last Friday and you can still get this one until February 9. Qualifying purchases of any LEGO products worth $45 and more will entitle you to this set, or while supplies last.

 

Free LEGO Friends Chocolate Box and Flower (30411)

Promo period: February 7 – February 14, 2020

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Here’s another brick treat just in time for Valentine’s Day. From February 7 to 14, any single-receipt purchase of $35 and more will allow you to bring home a free LEGO Friends Chocolate Box and Flower (30411) polybag. At 75 pieces, it’s a nice desk accessory to celebrate Happy Hearts Day. If you time your LEGO purchases with the intention of getting the LEGO Ideas ISS and its exclusive VIP patch at the same time (granted that supplies are steady), then the best time to get it will be from February 7-8. Making your purchases during these dates is a sure way to bag all these freebies.

Here’s Your Chance to Vote for the Next LEGO Star Wars UCS Set

Its a bit unusual, but the LEGO Ideas platform has announced a new contest that will let LEGO fans choose (or vote to be exact) for the next LEGO Star Wars UCS set. As of to date, LEGO has 26 unique LEGO Star Wars UCS sets – not including re-releases – under its belt, and launching this LEGO Ideas Fan Vote is their way of paying it forward to the LEGO Star Wars faithful. Especially that the subtheme is marking its 20th anniversary at this turn of the decade.

The LEGO Ideas Fan Vote – Help choose one of the next Ultimate Collector Series Star Wars LEGO Sets narrows the voting choices down into three UCS candidates based on the most iconic starships that roamed the Star Wars galaxy.

 The Nebulon B Escort Frigate
The 2005 LEGO Ideas Nebulon-B Escort Frigate product idea by LDiEgo represents an earlier attempt to give this starship the official LEGO treatment.

First appearing in The Empire Strikes Back and later in Return of the Jedi, there have been a few large-scale LEGO MOCs that took the challenge of recreating this Rebel-reformed Imperial starship. LEGO is yet to release its official version of the Nebulon B Escort Frigate, so voting for a brick-built replica of this massive ship brings us closer to the possibility of seeing one.

TIE Bomber
The LEGO Star Wars TIE Bomber (4479) was the very first LEGO model of this Imperial heavyweight released in 2003.

I think the TIE Bomber is one of the most underrepresented starships in the LEGO Star Wars franchise. After its first appearance as an official LEGO set back in 2003 in the form of the TIE Bomber (4479), it never had a rehashed version of any kind in almost 17 years.  Seeing a  larger, LEGO version of this TIE big brother is certainly a welcomed gesture.

Republic Gunship
The LEGO Star Wars Republic Gunship (75021) is the largest LEGO set of its kind as of to date.

This relic from the Star Wars prequel has already enjoyed two brick renditions from LEGO since the Republic Gunship (7163) was first released 18 years ago, followed by set 75021 in 2013. Though I wish that this third slot was given to another candidate, I guess there is still a large following for this artifact from the Attack of the Clones.

The deadline to cast your votes is on January 30, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. CEST (4 a.m. EST).  Be sure to head over at the Voting Page to have your vote counted. And while waiting for the votes to come in, be sure to check out the latest LEGO Star Wars sets now out at LEGO Shop@Home.

Do you have other Star Wars vehicles and ships that you wish to have the LEGO Star Wars UCS treatment? Let us know in the comments below.

LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) Official Press Release

Following through with its launch of the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) via LEGO Shop@Home, the LEGO Group now formally unveils its next LEGO fan-made marking the theme’s 10th year anniversary. Read on for TLG’s official press release.

Step into your astronaut boots with the new LEGO® IDEAS International Space Station

The LEGO Group has announced the new LEGO Ideas International Space Station, packed with authentic details as part of its 10-year celebration of the LEGO Ideas programme.

[21st January 2020] Realise your own dreams of becoming an astronaut with the new LEGO Ideas International Space Station, available to buy from LEGO stores and online at LEGO.com from February 1st.

Based on a concept from a LEGO fan, the new model contains 864 pieces, including the iconic space station itself and a LEGO brick-built NASA space shuttle with three mini cargo spacecrafts and two astronaut microfigures, making this a must-have for space enthusiasts and adult LEGO fans alike.

The realistic set features a posable Canadarm2 and two rotating joints that coincide with eight adjustable solar panels, to replicate the out-of-this-world complexity of the real space station that orbits the Earth sixteen times a day!

In addition, a display stand means that builders can proudly display it in any room once complete and celebrate the achievements of the five international space agencies that brought the incredible real-life ISS to life and have enabled humans to live in space for 20 years.

Measuring over 7” (20cm) high, 12” (31cm) long and 19” (49cm) wide, the LEGO Ideas International Space Station makes an eye-catching display model that will perfectly compliment any LEGO brick space collection.

The set comes complete with a 148-page illustrated instruction booklet, packed with interesting facts and information about the International Space Station itself and the LEGO fan who created the original design for the set.

LEGO fan Christoph Ruge submitted the original design for the LEGO Ideas International Space Station set after submitting other various space model entries via the LEGO Ideas platform.

LEGO Ideas offers fans the opportunity to submit their own brick creations with the chance to have their concept brought to life with the help of LEGO master designers and a share of the profits.

After three years, Christoph’s design was selected through the special review to celebrate the 10th anniversary year of the LEGO Ideas programme that has seen amazing sets come to fans including The Flintstones, Steamboat Willie and Friends Central Perk in the last year alone.

Hasan Jensen, Engagement Manager at The LEGO Group, said: “To celebrate 10 years of crowdsourcing and collaboration between LEGO Ideas (called LEGO CUUSOO until 2014) and LEGO fans around the world, we decided to dive into the archives of LEGO Ideas projects that had gathered 10,000 supporters but hadn’t quite made it into production.

“We decided that one of these great ideas should have a second chance, so we thought we would turn the LEGO Ideas process upside down. This time we started the internal review and came up with four exciting projects that we thought showed the greatest potential – and then it was up to the LEGO Ideas community to decide which of the four would be made into LEGO Ideas
set number 29. It was great fun to follow the fan vote and we were excited to be able to finally welcome the International Space Station into the LEGO Ideas family.”

Fans can submit their own LEGO set ideas at ideas.LEGO.com.

21321 LEGO Ideas International Space Station will be available directly via LEGO.com and LEGO Stores from February 1st 2020.

LEGO Ideas Mary Poppins, Cherry Tree Lane Product Idea Is Our First 10K Support Achiever for 2020

LEGO Ideas has tagged its First 2020 Review Stage qualifier that achieved 10K fan support in Disneybrick55’s LEGO Ideas Mary Poppins Cherry Tree Lane. After officially opening its Third 2019 Review Stage with 12 qualifying would-be LEGO Ideas sets, Disneybrick55’s original creation has now set the stage for the next wave of qualifying sets.

Based on the original 1964 film, this brick rendition of Cherry Tree Lane replicates how the set may have looked like during this time. As you can see from the images, the main and central portion of the build consists of the Bank family residence, while the adjacent houses are empty similar to the props used in the classic film.

LEGO Ideas Mary Poppins

LEGO Ideas Mary Poppins

This original LEGO Ideas Mary Poppins project proposal also features 8 minifigures: Mary Poppins, Bert, George Banks, Winifred Banks, Jane Banks, Michael Banks, Admiral Boom, and Mr. Dawes Jr.

LEGO Ideas Mary Poppins

Here’s a brief word from Disneybrick55 about his/her product idea.

Mary Poppins, Cherry Tree Lane
Discover the magic universe of Mary Poppins with this new project based on the 1964 original movie.
So this project contains the main part of Cherry tree lane avenue with the house of  Banks’s family which includes a lot of details of the movie like the bedroom of children, the living room and stairs.
Other buildings are actually fake buildings with only the main side like in the movie set.
So I put 8 minifigures: Mary Poppins, Bert, George Banks, Winifred Banks, Jane Banks, Michael Banks, Admiral Boom, and Mr. Dawes Jr.
Do not hesitate to go on my Facebook page to see many creations based on Disney universe.

 

There’s a lot going on in LEGO Ideas recently. We’re just waiting for the official announcement of the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) anytime soon while being excited about how the final versions of the LEGO Ideas Playable Piano, 123 Sesame Street, and The Pirate Bay will eventually look like.  I’m super hyped for Ivan Guerrero’s LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street, being a fan of the classic children’s show when I was a kid. Simply put, 2020 is just a great year to be a LEGO fan.

First Look at the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321)

If you recall back in May of last year, LEGO Ideas launched a particular contest that celebrates its 10th year anniversary as a LEGO theme. The LEGO Ideas 10th Year Anniversary Fan Vote sought to bring together some of the best unapproved LEGO Ideas projects that reached 10K fan support. Fans of these projects were given a chance once more to show their love and support for these would-be sets, for a chance to become the first official LEGO Ideas set to be launched in 2020. With a total of 46% fan votes and after almost 7 months of waiting, the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) is now on its way to a LEGO Store near you.

Now thanks to Promobricks, we now have our first look at this brick-built version of the Internatioanl Space Station. The announcement came via a store flyer promoting an in-store signing event together with the set’s fan designer  Christoph Ruge (aka XCLD over at LEGO Ideas platform). The signing event will be held at the LEGO Store in Nuremberg, Germany. Check out the flyer below.

LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321)

According to Promobricks, the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) will retail for 69.99 Euros and will be available on January 31st. There’s no confirmation yet if the release date of this first 2020 LEGO Ideas set will be the same for the rest of the world. But I guess an official announcement from LEGO is in order pretty soon.

Though there is no word yet regarding the number of pieces for this set, the price range may suggest that it may approximately consist of 900 to 1,000 pieces, with tons of solar panel tile pieces. It’s hard to figure out based on the flyer if these are printed pieces, but its equally baffling if these will turn out to be stickers. The horror of placing them on such a number of pieces! It may be wishful thinking on my part considering that LEGO still has to release an official printed tile piece to act as solar panels, but let’s wait and see. Traditionally, LEGO has only issued stickers for other related sets, especially prominent with the LEGO City Space sets that were released last year. I can just imagine the difficulty of aligning the stickers on these plate and flag pieces if they eventually turn out to be as such.

I also assume the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) will also come with a buildable stand for display purposes. And it will certainly look great beside LEGO City Space sets such as the Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control (60228) and Satellite Service Station (60224).

Be sure to stay tuned for more updates! Thanks also to Instagram user PicsLed for sharing this image.

Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Product Qualifiers Announced

It has been a while since I last visited the LEGO Ideas community, not because I lacked the interest (I’ve always been a fan of original LEGO creations coming from the community), but with so many things going on in this side of LEGO fandom its kind of hard to keep pace at times. So when the announcement finally came in rounding up the final list of LEGO fan submissions that got that overwhelming 10K support during the Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Qualifying Period, I just need to put the spotlight on these cool brick creations.

Let’s take a quick look at these 12 qualifiers and what we can expect from them.

The LEGO Ideas Review Team will surely have a bit of a challenge in determining which among these original creations will eventually end up on store shelves as the next official LEGO Ideas set. They’re all excellent in themselves and we even have our own favorites such as the Clockwork Aquarium and its fun play features. We just have to wait and see until the Review Stage is concluded sometime during the third quarter of the year.

Third 2019 LEGO Ideas

We’re also waiting for the LEGO Ideas Review Team to wrap things up with the Second 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage, and hopefully, we can get a final word from them during the next few days in which among the ten sets from this batch will emerge as the next LEGO Ideas set.

Which among these Third 2019 LEGO Ideas product qualifiers are your favorites? Which do you think will emerge as the victor? Share us what you think in the comments below.
