LEGO Cuusoo to be replaced with LEGO Ideas

Posted by ,

The 6 year beta period on the Cuusoo platform is over: on 30th April, LEGO is going to bring its customer suggestion programme in-house and rename it LEGO Ideas.

There's a bunch of other changes, too, the most significant of which is that projects will have just a year to achieve 10,000 supporters after which time they'll be deleted.

Full details are on the Cuusoo website.

Maula's Ice Mammoth Stomper

Hot on the heels of the Ninjago images we added earlier, official pictures of the summer Chima sets have been published on Amazon.co.uk.

Thanks Patch22.

Summer Ninjago images

Battle for Ninjago City

Images of the two Ninjago sets to be released in the summer, 70727 X-1 Ninja Charger and 70728 Battle for Ninjago City have surfaced somewhere on Eurobricks.

I haven't bought any of this year's Ninjago sets. What are they like? Any worthwhile innovations, or just more of the same produced to quell perceived demand but well past their sell-by date?

Thanks Toby for the news.
