    This is not my project, but it is absolutely amazing and so I'm posting it here because I feel like it totally deserves support and exposure: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/fa8f50fa-2267-415d-a0ac-d3b441653bf0






    Wow, thanks for the Shoutout Fizyx! I certainly appreciate you posting this and the support! I'm working on some supplementary themes for the aquarium.  That way, if it every gets made, people will have ideas on how to customize it and such.  So if anyone has any little ideas, please feel free to share them.  Thanks again!

    This is my submission to Ideas, please vote here if you like:This is my creation of Springfield where the hit television show “The Simpsons” takes place.

    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 Sign
    Springfield Observatory

     Springfield Tire Fire
    Moe's Tavern
    Statue of Jebediah Springfield
    Springfield Town Hall
    Kwik-E-Mart
    ​​Lard Lad Donuts with mascot
    Elementary School
    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.

    Hats off to LEGO for updating their rules fairly quickly, as it was not that long ago I saw the Simpsons House and the Kwik-E-Mart in the LEGO store. 

    I see the list was updated on March 13.

    I think the Dimensions sets for those are still technically active and not retired, even though they are out of stock.

    That's lovely. The downside is the wheels. They haven't been in production for about 40 years. And replacing them with modern ones will lose the charm of it.

    Hello everybody! Thank you for taking the time to look at my current LEGO Ideas project, Lolo & Lala. If I'm posting in the wrong category or otherwise breaking some rules, I apologize in advance; I got sniped in a totally unrelated forum for that. :-P

    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:

    https://ideas.lego.com/projects/09b198f3-9a74-4f8e-bf29-5f3bc4f53003

    And here's some more information about the characters:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventures_of_Lolo

    There's absolutely no obligation whatsoever, but any help and support is appreciated. Thank you so much for your time!

    I have fond memories of figuring out these puzzles with my brother when I was a child. Lolo was one of my favorite games back then. I really like your project, and good luck.

    LEGO Ideas Iron Giant - 20th Anniversary Edition

    I really want an Iron Giant LEGO set, but I fear that the block is likely in licensing more than anything else.

    I've been looking through this thread (all the mergings is a little confusing), and reading the official Ideas blog. What's annoying is the lack of explanation regarding why sets are rejected at the review stage.

    There is certainly plenty of speculation about that on this site, but despite how cool the Ideas program is, ultimately LEGO gets to decide based on whatever basis (both public and not) they want to. In the end it comes down to whether they think it will make them enough money. 
    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.

  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,313
    ^^ As Astrobricks said the final factor would be will TLG make enough of a return on the concept as a product, but some other factors are things like; being able to acquire the licensing rights, possible conditions on said licensing rights, if TLG feels it fits with the Lego brand, design issues with the original concept design, etc.

    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.

    Aye, there's lots of potential issues that could very legitimately bar a set passing review. But if we know what these issues are, we can use it to shape the projects we submit to Ideas. For example, if we know that one themed set failed review due to licencing issues, we won't make another of that theme, we'll focus on something else. But if another fails due to design issues, the creator can review their set, try to make it more closely fit an acceptable deisgn, and try to start again. Or someone else, with something similar, will know that it isn't the concept itself that's the hurdle.

    Basically, I think that more detailed feedback would not only satisfy fans/followers, but could help TLG get better options to review.
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,313
    I still don't know why my BattleStar Galactica 40th Anniversary set wasn't approved for voting, but I was repeatedly given option to edit & resubmit it. After the fourth resubmit presumably failed, my draft submission just vanished from the site. It seems TLG's Ideas team at least took on board the idea I put forth each time, that if an idea was not ever going to be able to be approved, then at least kill the draft, don't allow endless resubs. This was after I contacted TLG about the project before each resub, to get the "check the page, the answer is probably there as to why, once you've made changes, maybe give it another try." That experience made me question if all the effort is worth the time anymore...

    LEGO don't want to release sensitive contract information, or why contracts could not be agreed. They won't allow this type of information to be public.

    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 agree that in the second situation, it would be very nice if they could respond.  But I think there are likely to be possible trickle-over effects from the first situation the keep it from happening.  Because if they can comment about that on one project, but NOT on another project, it could have a revalatory effect about OTHER sets, including possibly causing a roundabout/indirect violation of NDAs or other legal agreements.  I'm sure LEGO is taking a better safe than sorry legal approach here, on top of their 'fairness' consideration that they use as their public excuse for it.

    Hi everyone. This is my first ever Lego Ideas project. It's called "The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine." As the name suggests it is a minifig scale model of a Steam Traction Engine with lots of features and accessories.

    https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2a2ec583-9836-4868-8dc7-6b3bb0a2fe80





    If you like the model I would really appreciate it if you could please support my project.

    It's not mine and a lot could/should be done to boost the idea, and the ship needs to be light bluish grey not white... and actually it's probably a bit late for the anniversary, but I thought this was a nice project:

    https://ideas.lego.com/projects/307b917c-c1a5-4ffd-9ce2-f48bea8d13aa



    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.

    Hi everyone,

    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!

    Please checkout my other projects too!

    Bluemoose made some great rockets a while back, see his post here:


    I don't think I'd buy this - in reality it is a small car, a small plane and a rocket in Basic/Creator style plus a minifigure. The rocket doesn't really capture the style of the one in Tintin, the fin dimensions are completely wrong compared to the body of the rocket. I'd buy one if it was one decent sized model with some minfiigures but not disperse small ones.

    Your Tintin plane set https://ideas.lego.com/projects/72a09a26-ce3b-40ed-ac2f-587b1eaeb5e8 got very litle interest, I don't think these other small additions make it any better.

    This one, for example, https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a3458e07-b7d8-4f85-b1c1-c1c3591797b0 is a much better attempt at getting one item done well at a decent scale. Although I don't think there is enough interest behind Tintin to get to 10000 - the best supported project so far received just over 4000.

    Does Nanoblock still have the Tintin licence? They used to (still do?) have a comprehensive range of Tintin sets. Those Nanoblock sets (and the MOC's linked to by @CCC) also show the scale you need to properly represent some of the iconic Tintin vehicles/buildings. Basically: big.

    If another building block company has the Tintin licence, it's hard to see a Lego Tintin set happen.

    After almost two years Central Perk / Friends has made it to 10000


    I hope it doesn't get approved (as it is just another Big Bang Theory type set), but apparently Friends is the most streamed show (on paid for subscriptions) in the UK ... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-45095819 so I guess it is still popular.
