    Saw the hover-scout on front-page and in the Secret Santa page. It's a brilliant set, and I'd love to see it go through! My only fear is that Lego would overlook a second Classic Space set for variety's sake. But maybe we can use it to prove CS's popularity as a general theme!

    Here's some that I posted up there. Only one that is probably feasible would be the Harry Potter game, but since they don't make games anymore I doubt it'd make it through the review process anyway.

    Pretty much the result I expected.

    Excellent news, Wall-E had to be made. For the next review I could see none making it, or perhaps the piano.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,259
    I'd love the Piano to get through but won't be surprised if none pass, they are pushing quite a lot through with the 2 per review lately.

    I think the maze is a lovely idea, but I think that cost v perceived cost will likely hamper it.
    Jurassic Park is pretty much out because of the Jurassic World stuff already planned.

    Helicarrier has been ruled out by TLG's own helicarrier

    Flying Dutchman seems unlikely because of the previous sets, goonies is far too large scale to be done as per the project (so not out of the running in my mind but unlikely)

    Natural History Museum would be surprising to see anything on that scale pass (again not out but unlikely)

    Minas Tirith - Is TLG were going to do a minas tirith they probably already would have.

    F7A Hornet - If it wasn't based on a licenced IP I think it would have more of a chance, I don't think the source is well known enough, but thats just my opinion.

    I'm very excited about Wall-E getting through, can't wait to see the final product of that - will almost certainly end up buying one for me and one for the other half. Dr Who, I'm going to remain skeptical about. I really hope they do a mini figure pack with all the Doctors (and ideally a companion for each) but I'll decide when they reveal exactly what the final product is.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 18,205
    Yeah, not at all surprising. It was fairly clear they were going to get the license for DW. I'm hoping for all the Doctors, not too bothered about their companions (except K9). After all, the REAL Dr Who (for me, the fourth one, Tom Baker) had multiple companions. If it turns out to be just one of the latest ones, it's a pass. They've done nostalgia in BTTF and Ghostbusters, hopefully they realise that sells.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,259
    I wouldn't be surprised if they do a '4 Doctors' types source, but with at least the most recent Doctor as an excuse to have several Doctors with one tardis and then if it goes well (which in the UK at least it is bound to) they'll put out more.
    +1 for wanting a K9 included.
  • AdzbadboyAdzbadboy London, UKMember Posts: 2,626
    Exactly what I expected, although the Star Wars Lightsabers would have been cool. I cannot wait to see what the final products look like...

    I think the two likely candidates for the next review will be the Piano and the Labyrinth Maze. Helicarrier was always going to be made due to the popular fan base. If we didn't get the Jurassic World sets I think we could have got the Jurassic Park set instead. The others are too large (I seriously don't understand why they have '$200' on the support survey...)
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 6,088
    Really looking forward to Dr Who. I already have a Wall-E though :blush:

  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,939
    Pleased with these results. The only 'Ideas' project that I'm genuinely excited about (as in, more than just "yeah, I'd buy that if it's made") is the Star Citizen Hornet in the next group.

    CIG (the studio behind Star Citizen) are pretty cool, and they seem like the kind of people that would love to have a Lego tie-in, but I guess the worry would be it being too niche, like @Shib said (that said, they have a decent-ish sized hardcore fan group who would buy it like a shot). Still, though, fingers crossed.
  • Steve_J_OMSteve_J_OM Cork, IrelandMember Posts: 948
    I'm so excited for Wall-e. I was worried that the Hubble would beat it to the punch, delighted with the result. For the next round, I would love that iconic Jurassic Park gate but I'm pessimistic about its chances with the planned JW line.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    Wall-e announcement made my week! Very excited to know he's coming down the pipes. I hope an official Minion is not too far out too!

    And congrats to all the Who fans out there!
  • VenunderVenunder Nottingham, UK.Member Posts: 2,504
    I am surprised that Wall-E made it considering that it is years out of date.
    But I guess it might be a good box of parts for those who like to make robots?
    Dr Who should always have been a target for a Lego theme.
    If it sells well it could lead to the release of a series of sets in 2016.

    I've updated the Hover Scout to a Mk 2 version to include a new playability addon - The Seismic Probe.

    Dave and Nigel are best to demonstrate in this short video

  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 18,205
    I don't think the Piano will pass. In fact, I don't think it should be allowed to pass.

    The designer has submitted the same design to bricklink's cuusoo site, and is acting as a "curator" at that site ...

    https://cuusoo.com/brands/cuusoo-brick#curator-picks-today

    If lego realise that he has submitted the same design to rival sites to commercialise it, then it is dead in the water.
  • vitreolumvitreolum RomaniaMember Posts: 1,406
    Indeed, I'm pretty sure there was a rule that the design must be exclusive to TLG once on Ideas.
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    Which is incredibly stupid of the designer, as it felt like it had a really good chance in a review where pretty much all the other projects eliminate themselves.
    ShibvitreolumAdzbadboyBumblepants
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,259
    Completely agree with @cheshirecat - they had a massive amount of luck in what it was up against for review and now shot themselves in the foot. I suppose they might try to argue that the cues brick project is different as its piano and furniture, but I imagine TLG would want to make an example and disqualify it.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 18,205

    Which is incredibly stupid of the designer, as it felt like it had a really good chance in a review where pretty much all the other projects eliminate themselves.

    I assume he knows that it has already failed to pass, otherwise he is very stupid to put the same project on there.

    It's not obvious what his relationship to cuusoo / bricklink is. He is acting as a "curator" for cuusoo-brick, and a lot of his designs are on the BL MOC shop (even if not actually for sale).
  • VenunderVenunder Nottingham, UK.Member Posts: 2,504
    I would like to personally thank the designer, if he has got the piano disqualified.
    Maybe Minas Tirith has a better chance now?

    Although TLG will probably go with The F7A Hornet.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,259
    Unlikely, the don't nessisarily have to pass any if them if they don't want to.
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    To me most of them, including minas tirith, have zero chance. I could certainly see all being passed over especially with three already waiting for release (big bang theory, Dr who and wall-e)

    I agree. Nothing in the upcoming review looks like a typical CUUSOO/Ideas release.

    Piano: Small and relatively generic.
    Flying Dutchman: Way too large.
    Marble Maze: Probably the best chance of any, but doesn't seem like a good fit to me.
    Minas Tirith: Too large and waning interest in the theme.
    The Goonies: Too niche for the size of the set.
    Natural History Museum: Too large, part of an existing theme.
    F7A Hornet: Star Citizen? Hm. Apparently a video game that hasn't yet been released. Too niche.
    Helicarrier: And that's the risk of submissions tied to a license LEGO already produces.
    Jurassic Park: Too large with the gate. Possibly a chance without it.
    UCS AT-AT: Why is this still listed as in review?
  • sklambsklamb speaker of American EnglishMember Posts: 490
    I don't think the Piano designer has violated the rules. He's promoting the design of the larger set, not selling it. There's no rule saying that he can't showcase the project somewhere else, providing he doesn't sell it or the instructions. Giving the instructions away is explicitly allowed.

    Personally, I'm rooting for the Piano (complete with Mozart or Beethoven minifigure!), and the Natural History Museum--although I'd be glad to buy either a Marble Maze or a Jurassic Park set, and I'd leap at the Flying Dutchman (but pigs will fly if that one is approved, IMO).

    I doubt it, with their upcoming jurassic world sets I don't think it will happen, gate or no gate.
    I don't think any project there has a chance unless they decide to make a big one. The piano is not nearly interesting to be released as a set. And it took it 5 years or so to get to 10k.
    The maze is a neat, but no more than a moc. Speaking for myself here, I'd probably play it 2-3 times then it would be completely forgotten. There's nothing more to it than that.

    He is not giving them away though, he is submitting it to be a commercial (that is, sold) product at a rival crowd-sourcing ideas site. It is up to lego to decide if doing this is commercialisation.

    Whilst I also agree, we don't really know what a typical ideas set will be in future. It is currently based on a handful of past sets coming from the infancy of the programme. If lego choose to do a small run (say 10,000 copies) of a huge set, then what we think of as a typical ideas set will be completely different.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,259
    ^To add to that the review results have always had a bit of a note of we're still figuring this out as we go along. While I'm not expecting any of the massive sets to get through it's not to say they absolutely won't, especially when you consider that TLG can choose to massively scale down the finished product if they think its worth while.

    I don't think they have done a very good job at updating them ...

    Projects may only contain genuine, un-cut or modified LEGO® bricks.

    Is that meant to mean that projects can contain only genuine parts that have not been cut or modified, or that they may contain genuine LEGO® bricks, un-cut LEGO® bricks or modified LEGO® bricks. I expect the intention is the first, but it reads more like the second. They need to make it clear that the un- applies not just to cut but also to modified.
  • vitreolumvitreolum RomaniaMember Posts: 1,406
    I'm willing to bet one of the reason a large set will not be made even in limited run of 10k is the unrealistic choice of price by many supporters. I wouldn't be surprised if half the supporters vote 50-100$ range for a 3000+ parts project.

    Just the other day I saw this evaluated at $150 on "Cuusoo"
