Since my last Ideas Showcase article, LEGO announced the results of the third 2016 review period.
I am really pleased to see the Ship In A Bottle, The Flagship Leviathan. This was a project that was promoted in one of Rock99rock's Fresh Ideas articles. I can see this set being very popular when it is released.
I am planning on analysing the projects that Rock99rock and I have promoted here at Brickset. Many of them have gone on to reach 10,000 supporters.
Read on as I showcase eight Ideas projects.
This is Schlumpy's only active project. It has early support and over a year to run to reach the 1000 supporters milestone.
Schlumpy's Motorised Walking Dinosaurs were on display at the Canberra Brick Expo where they were one of the star attractions.
This set appears to me that it could be a Creator Technic set which fuses Technic and System parts. Imagine this model being made into a new 3-in-1 Creator Technic themed set.
Take a look at Schlumpy's YouTube video of these models to see them in action. I liked the slow, lumbered walk with the swishing tails.
Dinosaurs appeal to all sorts of people and I can see enthusiasts purchasing several models.
Schlumpy has several other Technic dinosaur videos on his Dan's Brick Builds YouTube channel.
I am predicting that this project will soon be an Ideas Staff Pick.
This is Legomichiiiiii's only project that is active. It has just over 1200 supporters with over a year and a half to run.
The set reminds me of the earlier, successful 21301 Birds project.
This project will appeal to a range of people and would easily be a display model at home or at the office.
This is JonathanLoo's only project which has just over 300 supporters. It has just over a year to run to reach the 1000 supporters milestone.
Classic Space appeals to a wide range of LEGO enthusiasts and I am sure that this project will earn some solid support soon.
This is quite a small model which will be reasonably inexpensive to produce.
I like the silver space suit with the Classic Space logo. .
This project needs just over 200 new supporters with three months to run to reach the 1000 milestone.
AWI2345 is very active on LEGO Ideas and has several projects underway. Bumper Cars is AWI2345's most successful project.
I like the bright, colourful look of this theme park ride. It is possible to combine two models to make a larger park ride.
This is mkalkwarf's only project. It has just under 2100 supporters and has eight months to get to 5000 milestone.
Castle is another classic theme enjoyed by a range of LEGO fans.
This project is clever in that you can Create a big or small Kingdoms Modular Castle by combining as many smaller castles as you like. This has to be a marketing advantage.
The SR-71A Blackbird plane is an iconic relic of a former Cold War period in history.
The plane could travel at Mach 3+ and still holds the fastest flight airspeed record. SR-71A was used for aerial reconnaissance spy missions.
This is the only project JustOneMoreBrick has active and it has just over 2100 supporters with about 600 days to get to 5000 milestone.
This model has been well made and captures the sleek, stealth lines of this distinctive aircraft.
By Brent Waller
This is Brent Waller's only active project. He is a member of the 10K club as he designed 21108 Ghostbusters Ecto 1 set and has the other projects that reached 10K but were not approved.
This project was promoted late last year by Rock99rock in one of his Fresh Ideas articles.
The project currently sits at 960 supporters with just over four months to go.
It will be difficult to get a large Modular project approved. This project adds some greenery to a modular street scape. There will be many people who would like several of these sets in their displays.
My news is that my Queen Victoria Cruise Liner reached the 1000 milestone during the weekend.
Thanks, if you have supported this project.
I have undertaken a major redesign to make the model match the real ship. I have been fortunate enough to have had the model travel aboard the real Queen Victoria for a fortnight after the ship visited New Zealand in March.
Please take a look at the Updates Tab to see my new design.
So here are eight projects to have a look at. I encourage anyone contemplating submitting a LEGO Ideas project to do a considerable amount of research before starting to build their project.
I am always interested in your thoughts. Which projects do you like? Do you agree with my selections?
Feel free to leave feedback and links to your favourite Ideas.
