It's been about a month since my last Ideas Showcase article so it is about time that I Showcase some more Ideas projects.
My good news is that my own project was a LEGO Ideas Staff Pick two weeks ago. If you follow that link you will see really great projects. At the end of this Ideas Showcase article I discuss ways in which you can boost support for your project.
Read on as I Showcase seven varied projects.
This is the second of Jcreations912's projects that I have Showcased. Jcreations912 is quite a talented LEGO builder.
I like the way Jcreations912 has built the five big African animals.
You have to visit the project page and see the images of the individual animals to get an insight into the talent displayed here.
The Big Five of Africa has a month to get 13 more supporters to reach its initial 100 Supporters milestone.
Ymarilego has several Ideas projects underway and all of them are great. Chemical Plant is Ymarilego's most popular project by a long way.
It has had solid support and has over a year to get 600 Supporters for the next milestone: 5,000 Supporters.
The Chemical Plant would complement any of your city dioramas. It has storage tanks, cracking tower, oil drums and a train and truck loading bays.
This is Steve Guinness' only active project. It's about halfway to its next milestone: 5,000 Supporters.
What appealed to me about this project was a nostalgic return to my parents little portable typewriter; it looked just like Steve Guinness' project.
There is an incredible level of detail in this project.
This is Sleepy17's only active Ideas project. It has eight months to get just over 600 Supporters and reach the 1,000 Supporters milestone.
I have Showcased several puzzle projects: they appeal to me as I can see these types of models being purchased by a great range of LEGO enthusiasts.
I like that this project has two puzzles in one Idea.
This is Legomichiiiiii's only active Ideas project and it has about a year to gain another 2,400 Supporters to reach the 5,000 Supporters milestone.
I have Showcased this project about eight months ago and I thought I try and give it another boost, I like it that much.
There is an amazing amount of detail in these insects and this is another project that would appeal to a large range of enthusiasts.
Anthoatana has several projects underway but A15 The Architect Office is the most popular. This is another project that I have Showcased earlier.
It has a month to achieve just eighty more Supporters to reach 1,000 Supporters milestone.
Let's see if we can get this project to that milestone so the project gets a six month extension.
This is rangerrascal's only active Ideas project.
It has six months to achieve 600 more Supporters to reach the 1,000 Supporters milestone.
I really like micro-builds from any theme. This is a fabulous rendition of Neuschwanstein Castle.
I think rangerrascal has captured the essence of the castle by some very creative building techniques.
I like those little windows!
If there is one piece of advice I can give to anyone intending to submit a project to LEGO Ideas it would be spend a good amount of time refining your project before you first submit it to Ideas.
Once submitted, you can never edit the project's Description page. The main image will always be the principal identifying image of your project.
Last month I was fortunate to get several images of my Queen Victoria ship model with Cunard's sister ship, Queen Elizabeth, in the background. This one here is from my work's staff room.
The LEGO Ideas team want to see images of your projects In the Wild. If you have promoted your project In the Wild you should consider submitting images of these occasions to the LEGO Ideas team.
About a year ago my Queen Victoria model travelled in the real Queen Victoria ship. This was my project's In the Wild event which, when submitted to the LEGO Ideas team for consideration, caused the project to gain about 1,000 new Supporters in a few weeks.
So there you have my latest Showcase of seven projects.
It surprises me at how few people actually make contact and ask to have their project Showcased at Brickset. In most instances, when people have made contact with me I have been able to write something about that project's worthy features in one of my Ideas Showcase articles.
Please comment with your thoughts in the space below. Please also place links to your own favorite Ideas projects in the comments as well.
