It's in a format that fits in the Architecture Skyline theme.
I recreated various of the most important locations of the show and, as a bonus, I added the pink sedan; the police car and the UFO of Kang and Kodos.
The buildings featured in this set are:
Springfield Nuclear Power Plant
Springfield Tire Fire
Statue of Jebediah Springfield
Springfield Town Hall
Lard Lad Donuts with mascot
Simpsons House 742 Evergreen Terrace
Total parts: 368
Measures: 44 x 9 x 10,5 studs
35,5 x 7 x 8 cm
14 x 2,8 x 3,2 inches
Notes: It needs printed pieces for: the Springfield black tile; the Hollywood style sign on the hill; the USA flag in front of the school and the shops (Kwik-E-Mart, Moe's Tavern, Lard Lad Donuts). The nuclear plant towers can also be topped with a round tile if you prefer having them without smoke coming out.
I see the list was updated on March 13.
Odd that it still lists Goonies and Beetlejuice !?

Anyhoo, my LEGO Idea is based on some forgotten characters that have been in the history of video games, Lolo and Lala. For those of you who don't know they're the main heroes of the "Adventures of Lolo" trilogy for the Nintendo Entertainment System, a.k.a. the NES. They're better known as "Lololo" and "Lalala" from the Kirby series (as they're all made from HAL Labs), but they've been around even longer than Kirby. They hold a special place in my heart, and they have a special appeal (mostly in their eyes) and might be great gifts for weddings, video game fans, or even something to add to your workdesk!
As most of you know, LEGO Ideas is where people from around the world submit ideas for LEGO to approve and become official LEGO sets. The main catches are the idea must gain 10,000 supporters and approval from LEGO to make the dream real, so this set will need all the support it can get! You will need a LEGO I.D. to support (that's one of LEGO's rules), so if you don't have one, just sign up! It's real easy!
Finally, here's the link to my idea below:
And here's some more information about the characters:
There's absolutely no obligation whatsoever, but any help and support is appreciated. Thank you so much for your time!
Welcome to Brickset; hope you'll stick around and chat it up in the rest of the forum.
Over the last year, I've been retooling my LEGO Iron Giant and it's finally ready to go back up on Ideas!
Any and all support is appreciated, and thanks for the opportunity to show my project here!
LEGO Ideas Iron Giant - 20th Anniversary Edition
Unfortunately, I think a lot of Ideas submitters have trouble putting themselves in the place of both LEGO and potential buyers to honestly gage the likelihood of success.
A good example of the first one is Disney, while TLG has licenses to several Disney brands, TLG would have to negotiate each new brand they want to secure from Disney. While with Disney, this process is apparently fairly streamlined once you're doing business with them already, with some companies, acquiring licensing rights to another of their brands can be treated like you're starting all over again.
Conditions on licensing rights can be wide & varied, things such as companies allowing x amount of product to be produced & sold, then renegotiation of contract. Imagine TLG determines they can move 200,000 sets, need 100,000 sets sold to make the product line worth doing, but the other company will only allow 50,000 sets for an initial line, then wants to negotiate for any further release of sets. Another condition can be where actors hold all rights to their likeness, including any characters they play, those actors will expect a seat at the negotiating table (or their own table) & their own cut of the profits.
Basically, I think that more detailed feedback would not only satisfy fans/followers, but could help TLG get better options to review.
If it is down to design issues, that is their job after the review - actual LEGO designers review the design and playability, etc. if there is a business case.
I was more so referring to situations, like when the design has been created with things like old molds that have been retired & on the outset TLG aren't able to produce viable workarounds or the set relies heavily on illegal build techniques. Stuff that stands out as needing serious redevelopment work to potentially get an end product, it has been alluded by a couple of designers, that at least two projects failed review because of that kind of issue.
I found this really cool project on the ideas site, so I thought I'd share it here.
If you like the model I would really appreciate it if you could please support my project.
Well, I'd buy at least two. Not sure about Mr. Multicolour though.
I supported that project yesterday! I'm conflicted about the white wings on the spaceship, as it looks like the Galaxy Commander which I've always admired, but doesn't fit in with the Galaxy Explorer. The base is really nice, but again, mixing white in with the blue/grey/yellow seems a little odd.
I hadn't noticed the harlequin until @Mr_Cross pointed it out just now, and I'm not convinced. But as an extreme example to show that NCS could have a more eclectic colour palette I think it works.
It'll be an expensive set though. And we still need to see what they'll bring out as part of TLM2.
And also this morning it was mentioned in an article on Zusammengebaut :)
My latest Lego Ideas Project is all about The Adventures of Tintin based on the comics by author Herge. This product idea features a few models from the Tintin comics and movie combined into one set. This set features Tintin's plane from the Tintin movie, a moon surface vignette and Tintin and Captain Haddock's rocket from the Tintin comic Explorers of the Moon and also included in this set proposal is various vehicals used in many of the comics such as a motorbike, a boat and a jeep. This set will include minifigures of Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock both in their usual outfits and in their space suit outfits. Also included will be an enemy pilot and a monkey. Later on I will make minifigures of Thomson and Thompson and Professor Calacus. The plane features a spinning propeller, an opening cockpit and adjustable feet.
I used Lego Digital Designer, Stud.io, Photoshop and Inkscape to make this project possible.
I hope you all enjoy this set and support and share it because it would be awesome to gain 10,000 supporters!
Future updates coming soon!

If another building block company has the Tintin licence, it's hard to see a Lego Tintin set happen.
If you like the model please vote for it haven't done so already. I really appreciate it.
I am really glad, my Gravity Falls LEGO Ideas project already reached the first milestone of 100 supporter on it first day. The next one won't be so easy, but if you like Gravity Falls as much as I do, maybe you could vote for it too and help me get there.
