LEGO Ideas: Nine exceptional submissions qualify for the first review of 2016

By ·May 3, 2016 11:14 am

The First 2016 LEGO Ideas Review qualifying period ended yesterday morning and nine exceptional projects have made it through. For projects to make it through to this review stage they needed to have hit 10,000 supporters between January 2016 and May 2016 on the LEGO Ideas website.

The qualifying projects this round consist of an eclectic mix of liscensed submissions and original ideas. Johnny Five makes an appearance alongside a particle collider. We also see some fantastic LEGO City style modular buildings as well as Star Wars and Jurassic Park entries. You can view images of the nine qualifying submissions at the end of this article.

Personally I feel the Old Fishing Store submission by robenanne is the absolute standout set from this round of reviews. The use of colour throughout the wood panneling and the little accessories and details such as the fish curing on the porch all come together to create a very quaint and visually beautiful model.

I’d also be a fan of the Jurassic Park welcome center if it was chosen, but for me the center would have to be much larger than it currently is, it’s doesn’t scale well with the minifgures at the moment.
