The LEGO Ideas team has announced that the second 2017 LEGO Ideas review qualifying period ended yesterday and that six projects will be considered:
- Gilmore Girls - Luke's Diner by Rainer Zufall
- The Wonders Of Peru by cdwboy1979
- NF-15B Research Aircraft by Mammalucco
- I Am Your Father by szabomate90
- NASA Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale) by KingsKnight
- NASA Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower by whatsuptoday
While I congratulate the builders on their achievement, I actually think it's a particularly weak selection that will result in nothing passing review.
- Gilmore Girls -- It's a fantastic model, but based on a old show that has limited appeal to LEGO's core market, and I would say is relatively unknown outside of the USA
- The Wonders Of Peru - A wonderful model, for sure, but too niche for mass appeal, not to mention large.
- NF-15B Research Aircraft - Not different enough from recent Creator aircraft
- I Am Your Father - Can be discounted immediately due to the IP rule that was applied after this project was submitted
- NASA Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale) - Too similar to the recent 10231 Shuttle Expedition
- NASA Saturn-V Launch Umbilical Tower - An excellent addition to the Saturn V rocket, for sure, but I don't think it would make a sellable standalone product and by the time it hit the shelves, a year or more from now, the rocket would be long gone from them.
That's what I think. Now you take a look at them below then complete the poll at the end.
