    I just saw a really messed up idea on the front page. It's gaining support fast and It clearly goes against the guidelines so why hasn't lego removed it yet? I hope lego doesn't accidentally make it into an official set.

    I guess you mean RuPaul's Brick Race? I have to admit I'm not a fan — never watched Drag Race and most of what I hear about it is that RuPaul occasionally says some sort of gross, transphobic stuff that makes a lot of people uncomfortable. I'm not sure if the project violates any specific Ideas guidelines, though.

    In any case if it gets to 10,000 I don't expect it to pass review, because even if the idea of a crossdressing-themed toy isn't inherently problematic, LEGO doesn't like to court controversy.

    Yeah that's what I meant.

    I wish they would have approved the dark bucket though. (The bucket of 99 storm troopers and a darth vader)

    I have to question how some projects are able to get approval to be on Lego Ideas, let alone get a Staff Pick.

    There's only 66 days left on the TaleSpin idea that was staff picked a while ago. And it's only got 357 supporters :( . I really want this to be a set. Lego has a deal with Disney so it's very possible.

    https://ideas.lego.com/projects/141642 Here's the talespin idea. (Not by me. By somebody else. But I'd really like to see it as a set)

    I have the creator island adventures 31064 set which is similar. I bought it because I thought it looked like the sea duck

    ^ I don't know. The boxy, square edged wings bug me, and it is very similar to #31064 Island Adventures. Lego has been using the curved slopes to great effect lately on plane wings. See also #31047.

    I just wanted to take a minute and share with everyone my Lego Lighthouse build. It is called the Brick Reef Lighthouse and it is currently at 253 supporters on Lego ideas. I would like to see it climb a little higher, to around 1000 within a few months. Because self advertising is not allowed on Lego Ideas, I was hoping that some people on here would be willing to support and share my project around a little bit. I do not have any social media accounts so my sharing skills are somewhat lacking. I would greatly appreciate it if you would check it out and if you like it, support and share it. Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    I would indeed have enjoyed something like that as a kid... but there's no way my parents would have bought me something that expensive! (cue sad violin music)

    Nonetheless, it does bring back fond memories of #6381 Motor Speedway, which I spend £10 of my own money on :)

    As much as I like this MOC - very Mario Kart-like! - surely you see that this is far from realistic? I count 26 road base plates, which would be 200+ dollars standalone... 

    There's a reason all racing sets so far have been the stands, pit stop, finish line etc alone and not the actual track - it adds extensibility, makes it more affordable, et cetera. You'd probably have more success making smaller sets based off bits of this huge idea - I see plenty of nice bits that would be cool to have individually.

    Yes, I do see that this a big set idea, I also know that lego is a little over priced as well. Like the Lego Death Star which is 400 USD. I personally do not see a problem with a giant racetrack that might cost $200. My lighthouse build has about 700 more pieces and would be about $200 or more if they actually became real sets. The point of Lego Ideas is creativity, not perfect fully fleshed out models that will be on store shelves tomorrow. That is Lego's job.


    So, thank you for the feedback and I do understand your point. Hopefully you understand my side as well. Have a great day.

    You do realize Lego barely includes baseplates in sets at all nowadays, they would never include that many in one set...  While I agree Lego Ideas promotes creativity, it also promotes confining yourself to set parameters if you want to get support and eventually selected. 

    I LOVE the idea of a raceway for go carts, or the Speed Champion sets.  Something akin to Victory Lap Raceway from the 80's, to today's standards.  I just think including the entire track is setting you up for failure IMO. (please see this as honest feedback, I'm not trying to trash your idea in any way...)

    Yeah, I know that lego rarely includes baseplates in their models nowadays. I think it is kind of sad really. They are a multi-billion dollar company but they can't give us baseplates that we all want?


    I know that my ideas may be on the unrealistic and slightly to large side of things, but that is how I like to build. I would like for my projects to one day hit 10k and be considered but there are many sets that are leaps and bounds better then my own that never get the support that they deserve. I truly appreciate the honest and kind feedback and I will take it into deep consideration while creating my next model! Oh, and I know that your not trashing my ideas! If I don't take the feedback I will trash my own ideas! Take care and have a wonderful day!

    not sure if people will get excited if your idea is a piece of cardboard. I also see your complete model is like 1m x 2m30, not easy to find room for it.

    Cannot really tell what cars they are unless you say what they are. With a good model, you should be able to tell what the car is without someone having to tell you what car it is IMO.

    ^ I think that it's harder without stickers. The front air intake or spoiler on the green car reminds me of something hypercar-ish, but I can't recall exactly which one. The purple one looks like an American muscle car of some description (they all look the same anyway ;-P) could be a ford capri.
  • natro220natro220 USAMember Posts: 545

    If you click on the links you can see what they are.

    The first one is supposed to be a Dodge Viper (I thought it was an Aston Martin).

    The second I correctly guessed to be a Dodge Challenger.

    From Yorkshire to the US, it's a wide membership here! I seem to be going about my Ideas project rather in reverse having arrived here halfway through my first attempt, but hopefully better late than never. This a ship from a Japanese puppetry show called X-Bomber, which is also the English name of the ship. In English, the show was called Star Fleet. It was created by Go Nagai, and the music was covered by Brian May. This is my first serious MOC so feedback would be welcome, good or bad. My presentation isn't the best, i know. It would just be nice to hit 100, you know?

    Excellent.  I was trying to make it as accurate as I could, although tricky without using stickers.  Do please support.  A lot of people remember the show, but of course they may not remember what it was actually called or look in on LEGO Ideas! Doing my best to raise awareness but it really isn't easy so long after it was current of course.

    In other news, did anyone else notice that really popular Thunderbird 1 model just evaporate off the site? I'm told it was moderated off, but I don't know why exactly, it was doing really well last time I saw it...
  • Glacierfalls265Glacierfalls265 USAMember Posts: 245
    @ExcelsiorUK that's really strange! I've noticed a couple projects like that that disappear for unknown reasons. Hope it never happens to any of my projects!  
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,283
    @Glacierfalls265, how long has this been happening? I had one project I saved the link to because we were going to feature it on Awesomest Lego, but the link is dead now it the project was never there....thought it was odd, because if a project gets archived or fails to raise support, you can still see it.

  • Glacierfalls265Glacierfalls265 USAMember Posts: 245
    @VorpalRyu I can't say exactly for the past month, as I was in and out, but over the past 8 months since I featured projects on the site I've seen some projects disappear suddenly. The only reasons I can think of are that they somehow got deleted by the software updates that have been going on, or that someone else flagged them and they got removed by the mods (although this one seems unlikely). Either that or maybe the person deleted their account? I don't think that would affect their projects though, although it might? I don't know, it's very odd. 
  • ExcelsiorUKExcelsiorUK Yorkshire, UKMember Posts: 12
    @Glacierfalls265 I can imagine a few things. If LEGO came up with the same set idea internally, they'd probably kill it off - I noticed a Star Wars ship got archived despite lots of support, so that might have happened there? Other Thunderbirds remain on site, so presumably there's no issue with Thunderbirds as a concept. I suppose it's possible someone could use some form of fake voting or, of course, rip off someone else's MOC from elsewhere.
    I think the latter is a possibility and might explain why only that model was taken down? I think it was an account associated with a Twitter feed that was making new Thunderbirds episodes in the original style, so perhaps someone misunderstood the rules, I can't say for sure. I was curious as to why a relatively simple model was getting huge support so quickly but I suspect that was down to the associated Twitter feed having a lot of presumably quite dedicated members.

  • Glacierfalls265Glacierfalls265 USAMember Posts: 245
    @ExcelsiorUK good reasons. Sometimes I wonder about those projects that either limp along and then get thousands of supporters in a day or those that go from zero to 10,000 in less than a month. Sometimes I hear rumors that the site is hacked whenever that happens but I'm not sure how valid those are. I do know that one of those types of projects got so much support so quickly that it shut down the entire Ideas site because it overwhelmed the servers and glitched everything else!

    Well I've just noticed another one. I don't know if you saw it, it was quite a small set but well realised and described with good images. It was on the popular pages feed for a week or so? Then I remembered I hadn't seen it for a while, but couldn't find it on site. I found the creator's Twitter feed to remind myself of it, but his links came up blank with 403 and 404 errors. All of his previous projects seem to have gone; not sure what his Ideas username was but I bet his account's been erased too. Really odd. As you say, I guess someone with enough skill could try and "game" the support system but why do it in such an obvious way?!  You've got to be realistic, only a tiny fraction of projects ever get anywhere near 10,000.  It's a challenge!

    Speaking of which, I'm definitely not in danger of crashing the servers so I'm gathering support the old fashioned way! 10 days to go and I need 25+ more supporters to hit 100 for my X-Bomber project - it'd just be nice to get to that point with my first project! Do please check out the Updates too, I'm trying to have a bit of fun with it all. Cheers!

    I just posted my first project on the Lego Ideas page after about six months of planning and building the result is this gorgeous modular Japanese buffet.

    After contemplating it for a long time, I've decided to bite the bullet and have submitted two of my MOCs to Lego Ideas:

    The Drop Tower


    and The Swing Carousel


    I understand the chances of making it to 10,000 are incredibly small, but I figured it was worth a punt anyway :)
    Any and all support would be greatly appreciated!
