LEGO Ideas Third 2015 Review results

Posted by ,

The news is coming thick and fast today! The latest LEGO Ideas review results have been published on the LEGO Ideas blog in the last few minutes.

Two projects have been approved in this cycle for release in late 2016 and 2017 respectively. You can find out which ones after the break...

The Beatles Yellow Submarine counts among the most surprising project approvals to date in my opinion. The size of the proposed set is appropriate for a LEGO Ideas model but the choice of subject matter seems rather odd to me. Several LEGO Ideas sets have been aimed primarily at adult collectors in the past but none more so than this one so I wonder how well it will fit with the rest of the LEGO range.

Having said that, the model which has been submitted looks splendid and I do not anticipate many changes being made for the official set.


The Apollo 11 Saturn-V rocket is more in keeping with traditional LEGO brand values. However, the submission is approximately one metre in height so I expect its size will be significantly reduced prior to the release of the set. Hopefully the impressive level of accuracy and detail will be maintained if the model is scaled down.

I'm REALLY excited over the Yellow Submarine one, especially as both an animation major and a Beatles fan. It really improves over that not-so-nice looking K'NEX model that came out a while ago.

yeee, finally the first to comment on a topic!
euhm, now what do i do?
oh right: don't like the sub, way to specific but am interested in the apollo!

Really, REALLY excited for the Saturn V! Yellow Submarine is an odd choice, but I could be interested in that too. This is the first decent Ideas review in ages!

Gravatar
By in United States,

2 for 2 for me! Super excited by both. Beatles minifigs will be very, very popular!

The Beatles Yellow Submarine!!! Fab Four minifigures!!! Plus TLG is releasing Goonies, Gremlins, and the A-Team as Dimensions packs!!! Lego is just bound and determined to break my piggy bank this year. I can hear my wife saying "stay on budget, stay on budget," just like Luke heard in his X-Wing intercom while attacking the first Death Star "stay on target, stay on target."

Shame Concorde didn't get through, I was really up for that. Hopefully he'll release some instructions for it in due course...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Apollo 11! Cool!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Both have great appeal but again aimed at an older audience

Gravatar
By in United States,

Haven't been this excited for an Ideas announcement for a while. Loved the Caterham, but this round is 2/2 for me. Looking at the Yellow Submarine, I still wish LEGO had done a LEGO Movie submarine when the movie came out though.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Good choices for this round, and some tight competition for the next round too! Hopefully with the retro direction of the Dimensions announcement we'll also be getting a Johnny 5 approved in the next round too!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will buy the Saturn V if it's impressive size is maintained.

If they shrink it to around 1/2 meter, then no thanks.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I'm calling it now, the next review board will reject both Star Wars projects and Jurassic Park based on past observations.

Both of these new sets look interesting and definitely worth picking up depending on price. I am not a fan of the Marble Maze simply because of the price to be honest, while I've heard great things about it for the build techniques and such I just don't see myself dropping 90$ on a set like that. I skipped the Birds and Wall-E because I'm mostly interested in Minifigure sets from Ideas, but I feel like breaking that rule for the Apollo 11, it's too good not to get.

As for the next results, aside from what I said above I honestly can't tell what would make it to the final phase for a fully realized set. There are some curious choices there, but I have no idea what to expect outside of Already Based on Existing Themes being outright denied.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Me too on the Saturn V - that's the first one I've voted for. If they do shrink it then hopefully they'll include a launch pad/platform or some extra 'scenery'. Not a Beatles fan but the minifigs will be popular for the outfits and hair!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Apollo looks great, but does anyone even listen to the Beatles anymore?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Was really hoping the National Park sets would get a nod.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I rooted for three projects in this review, the Beatles, the Apollo and Saturn V, and the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea one. Getting two of the three I wanted approved ain't that bad ;) I will be buying both of these sets when released, they sound spectacular.

A part of me is tempted though to display The Beatles with the Volkswagen V1 Camper set...

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

A real tour de force that they managed to get the licensing ok'ed for The Beatles ... but it makes for a very interesting set :)

Not sure about Apollo. Love the subject matter but LEGO wise it seems kind of dull right now :( Looking forward to the final model though!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think the Nautilus would've been a better choice, but congrats to the winners either way!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I hate the Beatles with a passion. It'll be the first ideas set I skip.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I had no hope for the Saturn V; I can't believe it's been approved! I'd love to see the final product near the same size as the Ideas entry. LEGO already has a smaller Saturn V, and we have a yet to see a large scale Ideas set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Odeinoichus I don't understand why people continue submitting Ideas within themes that LEGO already has in production. LEGO has never made a Cuusoo/Ideas set based on a preexisting theme. Looking at all past sets, they either fulfill the purpose of acquiring a new intellectual property that can be expanded upon later (eg. Minecraft and Ghostbusters), or are a build that doesn't fit into any other theme (eg. Mars Science Laboratory and Maze).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Say what? The rocket could be fun, but I have zero interest in that Yellow Submarine...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm satisfied with this. I was really hoping it would be the Toyota and the Natilus, but the yellow submarine is great and the Saturn V wasn't my last choice. I'm still waiting for pictures of the Caterhams, super stoked for that.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The rocket is cool, the sub is meh.....

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nice that the Saturn V got approved, though I would have liked the Concorde to be the other one instead. Too bad I'm certain a 1-meter tall set will be too pricey for me, (UCS-type pricing, I'm sure!), but I'm glad people can get it and enjoy it!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I wonder if they will make more rockets than they made of the Mars Rover that sold out in two days.

Can't wait for Beetles. Plus I live yellow LEGO subs.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Should have done the Lego Movie submarine instead. Much cooler and a larger potential audience of purchasers.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm with @Huw on my dislike of the Beatles, but it's Lego ......

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Both elected entries are nice and I will surely buy them, however, once more, NO original ideas - just IP times two.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was waiting for the Apollo 11 Saturn Rocket approval. I am sure that many of my fellow older AFOL's will snatch this Lego Set off the shelves. The Yellow Submarine was not my favorite, but I will buy it because of the Beatles Minifigs.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

I think the wrong submarine won. "20.000 leagues under the sea" was much more detailed and would have been more appealing to kids and teenagers like me with many play functions (a bit over-sized though), but the Beatles "Yellow submarine" isn´t much of a playground. Although the Beatles minifigures would have been a welcome addition to my collection, and i think this will sell out very fast, since this set will appeal to adults and Beatles fans worldwide.

The Saturn V rocket looks interesting too. I hope there will be some minifigs in this set to man the rocket.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Looking at the elements used to create the 3rd rocket stage, the conical enclosure for the landing craft as well as the service module, and taking into account the relative diameters of the 1st+2nd and the 3rd rocket stage, then it is not possible to "somewhat" scale down the size.

If scaled down it would be an ENTIRELY different model.

Gravatar
By in Poland,

It would be nice if Yellow Submarine would come with Beatles minifigures from different stages of their career (good boys in suits and these from original submission, at least).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

As the father of a 6 year old who is a massive Lego fan and a massive Beatles fan, Lego just made his day (yellow submarine is his favourite too). We'll be picking a couple up (one each!). I think people may be underestimating the draw that the Beatles still have, especially outside the UK. I'm a Liverpool resident and can vouch that the Beatles still attract huge numbers to this city, so much so that Cruise liners are now a regular feature complete with their Beatles tours. Love em or loathe them (I'm in the former camp) they remain immensely popular and I'm sure the Liverpool store won't struggle to sell these!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Saturn rocket has over 1100 pieces! That sort of shatters the preconceived notion that Ideas sets had to be in the 300 to 600 piece range, or that large models would never pass review.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Sadly, I'm not really interested in either of these sets. The last few Ideas rounds have been disappointing for me, with no sets of interest since the Doctor Who set.

Holding out hope for next time and hope the old fishing store or fossil museum get picked.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like most Beatles music, but the set does not intrigue me. Wasn't a huge fan of the movie, but perhaps I'm just not the demographic? Its timely that Mattel announced yesterday it's own Hot Wheels version of the Yellow Submarine. Although not in the same "building toy" category, its still a toy none-the-less and will be competing for profit.

I am SUPER STOKED about the Saturn V. If they keep it at "approximately 1 meter tall", that will shatter the mold of what we have come to know of the size and (maybe) piece count restrictions for the Ideas line.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Poor Nautilus, I hope the Jurassic Park Microscale Visitor Centre or the Jedi Council Chamber gets chosen next time!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@bok2: The Saturn V Rocket is not an IP. It's not even licensed, honestly, because NASA doesn't do licensing agreements. All they ask is that they be notified and given an opportunity to review products with NASA imagery, and that merchandise of specific real-life astronauts only be created with the permission of those astronauts and their families. http://www.nasa.gov/audience/formedia/features/Merchandising_Guidelines.html

The Beatles may be a little overrated, but they were a big part of my childhood anyway and I'm sure it's the same way for many generations of people. Should be a successful product.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

As a lover of all things spacey, I'll definitely be getting the Saturn V; even if not to the same scale, it'll look ace next to the Space Shuttle from 2011. The sub is cool, and if nothing else it does show TLG is open to ideas that are more out of left field.

I should probably pay more attention to these announcements, I had no idea the Caterham was coming out until a few weeks ago.

Gravatar
By in United States,

These are both a big yawn for me.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Love the Beatles, and that set is just too fun. Will have to get.

@Chouju_X[SPAM] - yeah, people *might* still listen to the Beatles...

http://www.cnet.com/news/spotify-listeners-come-together-for-the-first-100-days-of-beatles/

"The iconic British rock band has had 6.5 million listeners each month on the online service, with 67 percent of them under the age of 35. The total time that Beatles songs were streamed on Spotify in the 100 days following Christmas 2015 adds up to 2,793 years."

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Too bad about the Jurassic Park Explorer... this doesn't seem to bode well for the Visitor Center this fall. :(

The yellow submarine is a very surprising and very interesting choice, even though I myself won't likely buy it. But I like the fact that it's something more "out there" for Lego to release as a model, and I hope to see even more strange things in the future.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Very surprised and excited about The Beatles set, that's gonna be awesome to display. Music is my other passion so this is fantastic news for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Really disappointed that the Nautilus didn't make it, but I'm stoked for the Saturn V rocket!

This was actually one of the better crop of projects, in my opinion, that has entered a review period. Thankfully, the two winners covered at least one of the creations I had wanted to make it into a real set. I'll gladly take this result after the long string of disappointments.

Gravatar
By in United States,

First I've seen of that Apollo model, but I haven't been paying that close attention to Ideas. Little surprised it passed given the Apollo model from the Discovery series 10 yrs ago. Still, cool set.

I'm shocked they were able to secure the licensing for the Beatles set, and I'm certain it will be a big hit. I'll definitely pick one up as an investment--if I can resist opening it and building it myself, that is! ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

That Saturn V belongs on my desk! :P

Gravatar
By in United States,

Before this news even came out today, my friends and I were talking about which were the most likely to be approved and I said both of these! For once I called it right :)
I really would have liked to have seen the Nautilus choosen since that was a favorite book of mine. Perhaps in a future Ideas itteration (I hope). Pay attention Lego - Nautilus = YES!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will get Saturn V at any price. Can not wait.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

@Aanchir: The Saturn V design was created by someone and is thus IP in the form of copyright.

Just because NASA will not require a license does not mean it is not IP per se.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Wow, I thought the yellow submarine was the least likely set ever to get approved. But, I love the Beatles, so that will be a definite purchase for me. I will possibly even keep it assembled and put it in a display case or something.

I like the Saturn V too, and I do hope they keep it as a decent size. I would love the modular train station to get through the next review but it seems unlikely unless it is released in line with the regular modular building release schedule.

Gravatar
By in United States,

LEGO Beatles?!?! I'm pumped! All I need now is a Beatles set for Abbey Road, one for Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, the White Album, Rubber Soul... all of them, really! Hopefully this means the LEGO Dimensions Beatles expansion is not far behind : )

Gravatar
By in United States,

@FreewheelBricks better put your hopes away. those projects have a 0.000% chance of passing next review

Gravatar
By in Australia,

None of these excite me, I'm waiting for the Caterham 7.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am really disappointed that the National Parks didn't make the cut. National Parks are our standard go to for vacation time.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Saturn V looks really cool. Hopefully the cylindrical shape is a lot more complex as far as building techniques go than it looks in the photo.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Well, I like the submarine and the Saturn V. Maybe I will buy these.
But I would have loved HMS Beagle!!! Such a shame, it will not be produced (version with cloth-sails). :(

Lets hope for the old fishing store in the next review!! I keep my fingers crossed. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Rocket, rocket, ROCKET!!!! :D
And submarine.

"I hate The Beatles."
"The Beatles are overrated."
WHO are you people?!?! :D
LEGO needed to improve on this monstrosity:
http://www.toymania.com/newspics/0213_ys5.jpg

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Certainly some odd posts on the biggest band in modern musical history. That alone makes it perfectly understandable why it's made the cut. Add the fact it is a cool model with great mini figures I can see it being the best selling Ideas set.

The rocket is cool as well but it will be interesting to see how much they reduce the size of it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am interested in the Beatles set depending on price. I don't care for their music or them as individuals, but I always welcome new figure prints/pieces. The listing has them as yellow, so I really hope they become licensed skin tone, otherwise I will skip for sure.

But I've skipped most Ideas sets other than the Ghostbusters, Delorean, BBT..ya know, figures.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am so glad I'm not the only one in the room who hates the Beatles.
It's more the undeserved adulation and the culture they represent than their music itself, which is just OK--their early stuff is undeniably catchy---but not a patch on the Zombies, that's for sure.
But I do want those trippy torsos!
Considering the Yellow Sub was previously licensed to another brick brand, I can't see why everyone is so surprised... the exact same thing happened with Scooby Doo. Must make it a cinch for LEGO to swoop in and pluck the expiring license, I would imagine that easiness is a key reason for approval, less work=lower costs=higher profits.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Zero interest in the sub. Mild interest in the rocket, but will probably pass. Hopefully the repeated success of classic Jurassic Park sets will eventually mean some OG sets being released, even if not through ideas.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So glad the Beatles set was approved, also interested to see how big the final version of the Saturn V will be. Lego really know how to take my money

Gravatar
By in United States,

first i love both sets and will defently buying both. but i have a question s there a place (site) that shows the instructions for building rejected sets? if not could some one start one?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd say that LEGO's been making some weird choices lately, but given that they've almost reached Marvel-like levels of turning weirdness and obscurity into gold, I'm not going to question them. :P Maybe we can get a U2 Zooropa project sometime...

In any case, those are some impressive and unique projects; fantastic work by their designers.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am very excited about the Saturn V and it will go on my desk. I hope it is very detailed and perhaps even with staging. A little sad that the Nautilus didn't make the cut. It was an amazing model and brings back a lot of great memories for me. Hopefully there will be instructions available.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@zrath @yuffie: I'm not denying that the Beatles were great, especially for their time. But some people treat them as more revolutionary than they really were, when a lot of the things considered "revolutionary" about their music were just a part of larger, already established trends in popular music. Which is to say, yes, they helped push popular music along in the direction it was already headed, but did not really change its course.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

My 7 year old is going to love the Yellow Submarine - that's his favourite song.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm very excited for the Yellow Submarine as I've been a fan of the group since the 60s and I still love the movie. Definitely a AFOL thing as it doesn't appear to have much play appeal. I envision this as a great wall hanging in a shadow box or acrylic case. It would be terrific if they decide to include a Blue Meanie minifig, too.
I would have loved the Nautilus to have been approved, also, as I think it's a fabulous recreation of the film sub. My feeling is that it's size was the catch, at least for an Ideas kit. Same with Victorian London Christmas. The Landcruiser was also very well done but probably wasn't as iconic as the VW Van.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ugh, Yellow Submarine? I'll pass on that one. The model does't look half bad though. Apollo will be interesting...

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I don't doubt both of those models will be very popular, but I'm not a huge Beatles and I don't really care one way or the the other for the Saturn rocket, so I'll be passing on both of these, I think.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I supported both of these. The yellow submarine has entered the lexicon so much that everyone knows it even if they have never seen the album cover or movie. Sell the minifigs to recoup costs if need be. The Saturn V wad the launch vehicle for the Apollo program, and as such, is the only craft so far to take humans past low earth orbit and on to another celestial body. It is a huge powerful craft. The numbers are staggering, and will only be surpassed by the SLS when it comes online. Everyone with any interest in human endeavour and exploration should buy the rocket, as a piece of history, and to convince TLG to make more historical exploration ships. Very disappointed that the Beagle was not approved, both from this point and for all the age of sail ship building moc'ers out there.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

As an established AFOL even I would be buying the Yellow Submarine...
... for my own dad as a present because he's obsessed with all things Beatle. That Saturn V rocket is almost inconceivably huge - surely TLG wouldn't reproduce the model at exactly the same scale as submission?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just don't get the Beatles hate. Now if TLG made a Nickelback or Creed set I would be more understanding. I'll surely be getting the Yellow Sub. I hope it all leads to an Abbey Road studio set. At least the Beatles will offset the garbage that is The Big Bang Theory. The Saturn V is awesome but I'll have to wait to see if its a must have.

Gravatar
By in United States,

OMG Huw! I thought I was the only person on the planet that hated the 'mop tops' (or the Bugs as I called them! Their music so plebeian....). I will definitely also be skipping this set! Now should they come out with Led Zeppelin and their plane......well....

Gravatar
By in Australia,

^^ As to building at this scale and no of peices, I think that's the entire point. TLG has recently released the Big Ben set, and has many other sets with a large peice count. As someone else already pointed out, there is no way to shrink this model without completely changing the design. This will reset the boundaries for Ideas sets in future. I think that a 1 metre high model will help convey just how big this rocket is, as it will essentially be micro scale. Peice count could be lowered by stripping out the interior, and just having the external display set. The submission has a fully equipped interior, with engines, fuel tanks, command module and lander all represented, and can be separated into stages, deploying the Apollo spaceship and Eagle lander.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Beatles set will be the first Ideas set that I'll skip.
The Saturn V on the other hand is a must buy, day one purchase! I really hope it isn't scaled down.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm so excited that the Saturn V is being made!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I'm pretty excited about both of these making it through Kind of surprised about the rocket making it through due its sized. Hope its just as impressive once its released as a set.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I'm so disappointed that the FJ40 Landcruiser didn't make it. I've been following it since it was conceived on LEGO Ideas, and I have a very similar real world model.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I'm so excited for the Saturn V. I always wanted the old Discovery Channel sets, but I was pretty young when they were on shelves, and they're *really* expensive now.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The question everyone interested in Apollo Saturn-V should be asking / contemplating now is which proposed version will get produced: Deluxe (with the interior detailing, hatches, minifigs) or Basic.

Or maybe TLG is intending to just produce the nano-crawler + rocket + launch tower (336 bricks total). That would be a disappointment.

Gravatar
By in Colombia,

Each time I'm more disappointed with lego Ldeas and its decision.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

I like the Beatles music, but I'm not shure about the Yellow Submarine. The Saturn V rocket is another story. Hope they keep the size and if it is not to pricy, I get one.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Disappointed again. Lego ideas should be about truly spectacular builds. The next ones had better be the modular train station or the old fishing store - lots of lovely new ideas and techniques to build upon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

While I'm sad to see another of senteosan's projects get dismissed, it was expected.

I have no interest in the Beatles.

The Saturn V, however, will be purchased. I hope we get a well done Lunar Module at some point as well.

I own Wall-E, 4 exo-suits, and the Ecto-1. Would have liked the Birds set. I liked the source material on the BTTF Delorean, but couldn't stomach the model.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Very happy - both of those are just awesome ! Love the Beatles, and this song just brings back my childhood, singing away in my father's yellow comby !!! And then there is space! Definite purchase for both of these....
Did I mention woohoo !

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Neither one of these sets fills me with excitement and out of the wave of kits considered, the only one that drew any interest was the Nautilus.
The whole Ideas range is quite hit and miss for me. The Ghostbusters Ecto 1 was a must, as was The Big Bang Theory and Doctor Who.
The only 2 other sets I've seen that I'd definitely go for would be Johnny 5 from Short Circuit and the Eagle Transporter from Space 1999.
On the plus side, at least I'll have more money for Star Wars and Marvel kits.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

The brick "Wall Element 4X4X6, Round" in white used to create the exterior wall of the 3rd rocket stage has been used for exactly the same purpose (well, kind of) in 3831: Rocket Ride.

It was also used in the space related 10019: Rebel Blockade Runner.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

> javagrl ... Disappointed again. Lego ideas should be about truly spectacular builds.

Ideas isn't about spectacular. It is about popular.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ugh. Hate the Beatles. Everyone expects people from Liverpool to love them, but there are a lot of us who actually loath the sight of them.

The rocket is a bit meh, too.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I'm kinda relieved, I'm saving money for once, which I desperately need for all the other sets that are still on my list (Big Ben anyone?). XD

I LOVE the Beatles, but this is nonetheless not an intriguing set for me. And the Apollo 11 rocket is also not sth I need in my collection. The ISS though, that would be a different story... ^^

Gravatar
By in United States,

A yellow submarine is literally LEGO's worst idea. I agree with Huw. I too hate the Beatles with a passion.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So stoked that Apollo 11 made the cut. Had to share it with Buzz Aldrin :)

I'm not a fan of the Beatles, but I see this set doing very well. My sister will probably start pestering me to pick up the Beatles set for her.

Going off past history, I'm not expecting any sets to make it through the next review.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I hope TLC will surprise me around X-mas with the Victorian London street as a BIG winter village special. NOT interested in these two sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So for size purposes, 1 meter tall ~ 3 feet. How many bricks will it need to get that big? also, can you imagine the price of said product?

Even if it does turn out well done and I did decide I liked it enough to own due to design or historical significance, I can't fathom paying whatever they think to charge for it. LEGO is too expensive as it is!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Potentially the most disappointing Ideas sets to date, for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can respect the dedication to the Apollo 11 (even if it is not in my ally) but I must say I am suprised and pleased at the Lego Yellow Submarine.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Meh.
I was really pulling for the Nautilus.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

As long as Saturn V stays about the same size I'll definitely be buying.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

"Meh" indeed. Not interested in either of them. Not a Beatles fan and the Saturn V will be downsized for sure.
Nautilus would've been awesome. Or the Victorian Christmas. Or the Landcruiser. Or literally any of the other 7.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Love the Saturn V but I know the actual TLG one will be half the size and covered in stickers. Fingers crossed though!

Meh from me on the sub, but with about 206,500 households in Liverpool (thank you google) selling a set to one in ten households there will bring in a few £.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Peter1975

I'm hoping for a Classic Castle medieval village monorail with a horse-drawn train full of goats, cows and about two dozen peasant passengers for £20.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I despise the Beatles. Always have. Oddly enough, lthough I have no interest whatsoever in this Beatles themed set, I still think it is pretty cool.

The Apollo model is pretty awesome. If it closely resembles the submitted set, I'd have to get it.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Man, with all this negativity towards the Beatles set how did it ever reach 10,000 supporters?

I'll be buying it regardless of any feelings I have one way or the other, do you want to know why? These are the first official musicians from the real world in Minifigure form, by supporting this I may get a Rock History Museum set at some point in the future with such greats as Elvis, Jimmy Hendrix, Madonna and others immortalized in plastic to add to a great LEGO City based display. Probably an unrealistic dream, but it could come to pass, you never know.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will already bet that next time, it will be the gingerbread house and Jedi council chambers. Mark my words...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was really looking forward to that very impressive Nautilus. An AFOL, as a child, trying to build the Nautilus out of LEGO was a favorite theme. As much as I am a Beatles fan, the movie, Yellow Submarine, is such a Beatles in Name Only affair. If you look it up, voice actors were even hired to play their parts.

Gravatar
By in Spain,

Hating The Beatles is like hating music. Thank god there are people who love it, including my 2 daughters of 9 and 11. They listen to the Yellow Submarine song often and we will have great fun building it. Thank you whoever designed it for a fantastic model and thank you TLG for having the guts and vision to produce it. Will buy a few extra for my non-LEGO music-loving friends.
