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

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.

Record-Breaking 57 Product Ideas Qualify for the First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review

They just keep on coming, and I love it! The LEGO Ideas fan submission platform has just concluded with another record-breaking high, with a total of 57 product ideas qualifying for the First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review stage, as announced over their blogsite. These 57 submissions managed to get the necessary 10,000 fan votes needed to progress for this year’s first LEGO Ideas review.

Since the start of the pandemic, the LEGO Ideas platform saw a steady increase of fan submissions, largely as a result of increased LEGO building at home. As I’ve mentioned before in a previous related article, this is a testament to how LEGO building as a hobby, turned out to be a positive outlet for most LEGO fans as we strive to cope with the series of lockdowns and stay-at-home orders.

I’ve always been a fan of LEGO Ideas, and I’ve covered and supported some of its fan submissions that eventually found their way to becoming official LEGO Ideas sets. And I also intend to continuously cover every LEGO Ideas fan submission that reaches that 10K support milestone. However, the recent influx of review stage qualifiers is just kind of hard to keep track of! I guess I just have to double down on keeping them on my radar. It will always be a pleasure to see the creativity of the LEGO fan community spring into life, so be ready with the scroll wheel because this will be a very lengthy list.

Additionally, it should be mentioned that there was a particular fan submission that didn’t make the cut even though it managed to reach 10,000 supporters. The Stadium Tour did not eventually qualify for the First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review because it failed to follow the platform’s stipulated guidelines, particularly on “intellectual properties”.

As a last note, the Third 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage is about to be concluded, with the announcement of the winner slated to happen sometime this summer. We have to wait a lit bit more to see which among the 25 qualifiers in this particular review stage will go on to become an official LEGO Ideas set. For now, let’s take a look at what these new 57 product qualifiers for the First 2021 LEGO Ideas Review Stage has to offer. Which is your personal favorite? Let us know in the comments below.

As the Grand Prize winner for the LEGO Ideas Out of This World Space Build contest, bulldoozer’s LEGO Ideas The Adventures of the USS Cardboard has the privilege of becoming the next official LEGO GWP set. And in case you don’t know yet, LEGO fan designer bulldoozer or Ivan Guerrero in real life is also the fan designer behind the more recent LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324).

Congratulations once more to Ivan Guerrero and a huge thanks to all the finalists for inspiring us to just keep on building.

LEGO Ideas The Adventures of the USS Cardboard is Our Next LEGO GWP

Several weeks ago, the LEGO Ideas platform has launched another contest that tapped into the collective creativity of the LEGO fan community. Dubbed as the Out of This World Space Build Contest, the contest managed to pool 15 finalists vying to become LEGO’s next gift-with-purchase (GWP) set. And after the votes were finally tallied, the honor of being the next LEGO GWP has now landed to the upcoming LEGO Ideas The Adventures of the USS Cardboard.

Adventures of the USS Cardboard

Similar to its predecessor the LEGO Vintage Car (40448), the LEGO Ideas The Adventures of the USS Cardboard was a fan-submitted entry that managed to gather the highest number of votes (2,869 votes to be exact) among the LEGO fan community and will eventually become an official LEGO set.

Designed by LEGO fan builder bulldozer (aka Ivan Guerrero), the LEGO Ideas The Adventures of the USS Cardboard is Ivan’s playful take on his fond memories of ‘space adventures’ with his brother when they were children. Another fun fact in case you don’t know yet, Ivan Guerrero is also the LEGO fan designer behind the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324). Pretty neat right?

As a fan of minifigure vignettes, I personally voted for this entry and was sincerely looking forward to seeing this become an official LEGO set. The vibrant color scheme, the child-like wonder that the set evokes, surely hits all the nostalgic strings of childhood fun and awe. Plus, the story behind Ivan’s creative process speaks close to everyone’s heart – childhood innocence and a sense of wonder and adventure all wrapped up in close family ties make this set an absolute winner.  Plus the fact that it appeals to LEGO’s classic Space theme really hits the sweet brick spot.

I’ll keep you posted once LEGO releases more information later on. Congratulations once again to LEGO Filipino fan designer  Ivan Guerrero for this prestigious recognition!

Here’s A Chance To See Your Disapproved LEGO Ideas Projects Become a Reality

If you are actively into supporting LEGO fan creations over at the LEGO Ideas platform, chances are there are a lot of product ideas that you voted for that eventually did not made it past the Review Stage. And this time around through a collaboration with BrickLink, some of these disapproved LEGO Ideas projects may still have a chance to become a LEGO set soon.

Dubbed as the BrickLink Designer Program: 2021 Invitational, 31 LEGO Ideas 10K club projects were chosen to be included in this crowdfunding initiative. Through this, these qualified but disapproved LEGO Ideas projects will go through pre-production, crowdfunding, and production stages where BrickLink members who pre-ordered these sets will have the chance of having these delivered to them.

For more information on what these 31 LEGO Ideas 10K projects are, you may head over to BrickLink’s website right here. You may also go through the details and FAQs provided by the LEGO Ideas blogsite.

*******************************

KICKING OFF THE BRICKLINK DESIGNER PROGRAM: 2021 INVITATIONAL

Today we’re excited to share the next steps in the collaboration between LEGO Ideas and BrickLink via the BrickLink Designer Program: 2021 Invitational.

As communicated in December 2020, we planned to invite a selection of LEGO Ideas members and their 10K Club submissions to participate in the pilot program, the purpose being to realize more of the amazing fan designs that are submitted to LEGO Ideas.

The result has been that 27 members have agreed to participate in 31 10K Club projects. We’re thrilled at the response we got from the invited members with almost 100% of the invited members deciding to accept our invitation.

The designers are already very busy at work on their designs in the “pre-production” phase. In this phase, designers must re-work their designs to fit a few program requirements, such as having to build their creations digitally in BrickLink’s Studio using a particular palette of LEGO bricks and colors, resizing their designs to fit between 400-4000 elements and more.

The pre-production phase, which ends May 31st will also include testing phases. Submissions must pass the pre-production phase and deadline to have their design(s) eligible for crowdfunding.

On the BrickLink landing page, you can find the overall timeline for the program as well as an in-depth FAQ that can hopefully assist you with answers to your questions. The BrickLink team will also be available to answer your questions.

FAQ
WHY WERE SO MANY OTHER 10K CREATORS NOT INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE BDP 2021 INVITATIONAL?

Considering the maximum number of sets we can produce, only 32 projects were selected among all the unrealized LEGO Ideas projects. No IP-based models are invited to the program as they cannot be produced through this program.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO DESIGNS THAT DON’T MEET THE PROGRAM CRITERIA DURING THE PRE-PRODUCTION PHASE?

Designers of all the participating projects have to revise their original design to meet the program requirements and pass the test building before May 31st. Only the projects that meet the production requirements will be listed for crowdfunding.

HOW MANY DESIGNS WILL BECOME BRICKLINK DESIGNER PROGRAM SETS?

Only the first 13 projects to reach the crowdfunding goal will become BrickLink Designer Program sets.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE DESIGNS THAT DON’T REACH THE CROWDFUNDING GOAL OR ARE NOT AMONG THE 13 QUICKEST TO HIT THEIR GOAL?

The remaining projects in the crowdfunding phase that don’t become BrickLink Designer Program sets will be sold as digital Building Instructions only so that you can still have an opportunity to find your own bricks to build them.

HOW ARE FAN CREATORS COMPENSATED FOR THEIR IDEAS?

Fan designers will receive a 10% royalty fee for BrickLink Designer Program sets, while designers of Digital Building Instructions will receive a 75% royalty fee.

WILL YOU MODIFY THE ORIGINAL LEGO IDEAS DESIGN DURING PRODUCTION?

In the BrickLink Designer Program, we do not intend to change the original designs that are loved by the fans, but there can be inevitable modifications due to production requirements, such as part availability and stability issues. All design revisions will be done by the original designer, and the revision history will be shared on the project’s details page.

Its Time to Cast Your Vote for the LEGO Ideas Out of This World Space Build Contest

The LEGO Ideas Out of This World Space Build contest has now entered its crowd vote stage. And with 15 finalists vying to be the Grand Prize winner and the bragging rights to be the next LEGO gift-with-purchase (GWP) set, it’s now up to the LEGO fan community to determine which is the best among the rest.

Launched last month, this next LEGO Ideas contest seeks to find the most playful and creative space-inspired, fan-made LEGO set out there under 250 bricks. This means that once turned into an official LEGO set, the winning entry will most likely be of the same size as that of its predecessor, the LEGO Vintage Car (40448). During the Review Stage, the LEGO Ideas Review Team selected the 15 finalists based on the following:

  • Overall coolness and originality 
  • Most inspired details
  • Relevance to the contest theme
  • Best of use of LEGO elements 

Now that the contest’s review stage has concluded with 15 finalists to choose from, fans can now cast their one (1) precious vote to help support the next LEGO GWP set. In no particular order, here are the top entries that made it past the review stage. You may click on their respective links if you wish to support your favorite entry. Remember you can only cast your vote once so be sure to consider every entry first before giving your vote. Crowd voting will end on March 19 so be sure to vote now.

LEGO Ideas We Love Sports! Contest Crowd Vote Winners Announced

Last month, LEGO Ideas rolled out its list of finalists for its LEGO Ideas We Love Sports! building contest. And following the contest’s fan voting phase, we now have our grand prize winner based on what LEGO fans voted for.

If you recall, the LEGO Ideas We Love Sports! contest has a crowd vote phase where special prizes await the sports-themed LEGO MOC that received the most number of votes from February 15 to 25. And based on this pool of 10 finalists, the LEGO Idea Review Team will select one entry that will go on to become an official LEGO Ideas set, similar to what we have with the Music to Our Ears contest and with its soon-to-arrive LEGO Ideas Legendary Stratocaster. Needless to say, bagging the grand prize for the crowd vote does not guarantee that it will be eventually chosen as the next LEGO Ideas set. But looking at this winners list, I’m really hoping that it will be any of them.

Let’s take a look at this roster of winners starting with the overall grand prize winner.

The house can be opened up to unveil a whole host of furniture and unique items, such as the “Pooh-coo” Clock, box of “Pooh sticks”, Tigger’s locket, and of course, plenty of honey pots – both full and empty! 

A. A. Milne’s wonderful tales of Christopher Robin’s adventures have amazed readers of all ages for almost a century and have become even more memorable thanks to the television and film adaptations that have truly brought the characters’ world to life. 

LEGO superfan Ben Alder originally submitted the concept to LEGO Ideas; a LEGO initiative that takes new ideas that have been imagined and voted for by fans and turn them into reality. Based on Ben’s original designs, the set is the perfect project for adult builders to take time to relax and return to the halcyon days of youth, recalling the adventures of their favorite bear and his friends.

Discussing the design, Ben Alder commented “I love Winnie the Pooh and remember my parents reading it to me as a child. I now read the same Winnie the Pooh stories to my children, so it is certainly something dear to my heart. I decided to make the set so that my children could bring to life our bedtime stories but never quite expected the positive reaction it has received.”

The new set also includes five new molded characters, each with their own accessories. Pooh himself has his red balloon to collect honey from the bees in the branches above, Piglet is wrapped up in his scarf, and Tigger has just moved to the woods with his sack on a stick. Meanwhile, Rabbit has carrots ready for snacking, and Eeyore comes complete with his tail and a removable ribbon. 

Other notable inclusions to the set include; a campfire and log for Pooh to think about the things that he discovers, his front door complete with “Mr. Sanders” sign above it, his adorable blue bell to ring the front door, and finally, a signpost to the Hundred Acre Wood to make sure Pooh finds his way home.

Federico Begher, VP of Global Marketing at The LEGO Group commented, “Winnie the Pooh is a 95-year-old story that is loved globally, so seeing Ben’s design sparked a lot of nostalgia for us all.  Plus, his personal story about how he created the set for his family to play out the lovely Winnie the Pooh stories using LEGO bricks felt like a beautiful combination of family, LEGO bricks, and Winnie the Pooh that we wanted to share with others. 

We also had the rare treat of being able to create all-new characters for this LEGO Ideas set. We simply had to see how the line-up of Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, and Piglet would look like in minifigure shape. As well as creating a brand-new Eeyore figure! 

The stories of the Hundred Acre Wood come to life with this set and there are plenty of intricate details for fans of both Disney and LEGO to discover.” 

The LEGO Ideas® platform is a LEGO initiative that takes new ideas that have been imagined and voted for by fans and turns them into reality. The LEGO® Ideas Winnie the Pooh set is available directly from LEGO Stores and LEGO.com from 18th March, 2021 for LEGO VIP members, and 1st April 2021 for all.

The LEGO Ideas Winnie the Pooh (21326) is the brainchild of LEGO fan designer Ben Alder (aka benlouisa over at LEGO Ideas) that features Pooh’s iconic house beneath the oak tree. His product idea eventually won the support of more than 10,000 LEGO fans and was given the thumbs-up of the LEGO Ideas Review Team to become the next official LEGO Ideas set during the platform’s Second 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.

The build itself opens to reveal the fine details of Pooh bear’s colorful abode, complete with its furniture and other familiar items.  The set also comes with new-for-2021 minifigure versions of Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, and Eeyore together with their accessories. I’m glad how these new minifigure characters turned out, with LEGO taking the time to create new, insanely accurate moulds and prints for their headpieces.
