In this Ideas Showcase article, I am promoting twelve LEGO product Ideas (as they are known).
I am always interested in your thoughts about which projects do you like.
The designers of these twelve projects have made contact with me and asked for help promoting their work. Read on as I add my comments of these worthy Ideas projects.
This is another project from Yvonne Strijbos. She has designed several industrial sites. Her Chemical Plant is currently in review.
The Mining Site is another industrial project that has been built to complement her Chemical Plant.
You can see her 10K Club interview as she describes her Chemical Plant project.
The Mining Site has over 200 days to reach 5,000 Supporters. It currently has over 4,100 Supporters.
The building is a typical mountain chalet structured with a ground floor restaurant that is accessed from the main door and also offers its guests upstairs bedrooms.
The project has over 6,500 Supporters and only seven months to run. If this project is going to get to 10,000 milestone then it will need a boost in support soon!
This is the third "modular" styled project that I want to showcase.
This project is inspired by the largest LEGO Store in the world at Leicester Square in London.
It was designed as a sketch model and has been built to be part of a modular street.
It has early, solid support with over 1,500 Supporters.
The Meyers Manx dune buggy is a small recreationally-oriented automobile, designed for desert racing by Bruce F. Meyers.
It is named after the Manx breed of cat due to its stubby design.
It is built using the Technic system which has made it much easier to recreate the curved design.
It is early stages for this Ideas project. it has eight months to reach 1,000 Supporters and therefore get a six-month time extension.
Seinfeld is one of the most popular TV shows of all time and this project could be added to the other two successful Ideas projects.
It has five months to get to 1,000 Supporters milestone and therefore get a six-month time extension.
LEGO board games were popular sets.
Labyrinth, also known as The aMAZEing Labyrinth, is one of the true classic family board games.
This LEGO version is quite simple with around 900 pieces.
It still pleases the eye with its details and it fits on a regular 32x32 baseplate.
It has nearly a year to reach 1,000 Supporters and therefore gets a six-month time extension.
A Zoetrope is one of several pre-film animation devices that produce the illusion of motion by displaying a sequence of drawings or photographs showing progressive phases of that motion.
This is a dynamic model and to really see what it does, you need to watch the one-minute YouTube clip.
The project has slightly over 500 Supporters with nine months to get to reach the 1,000 Supporters milestone.
Sonic Mania is a 2017 platform game published by Sega.
This is an authentic recreation of the timeless gameplay stylings of the 1990s and a stunning showcase of gorgeous pixel art.
It is close to 4,700 Supporters with plenty of time to reach 5,000 Supporters.
Two soldiers are standing guard while a third soldier tries to catch something from the jetty.
A General is guarding the treasure and there is a pirate sitting in jail.
It is important that the soldiers make sure that the pirates don’t free their mate.
With over 1,400 Supporters, this project has six months to reach 5,000 Supporters.
This IDEAS project is an automated side-loading garbage truck that reinvents minifigure-scale garbage collection. The truck has several functions:
- A working side loading bin arm that can pick up and empty LEGO trash bins into the truck’s hopper
- A trash compacting ram to push trash from the hopper to the dumper
- A dumper that is hinged to tip back with a tailgate that opens up to dump the garbage
There have been several LEGO garbage trucks but none have had an automated side-loading mechanism.
This project has a solid following. With over 3,300 Supporters and 500 days to reach the next milestone.
This LEGO Ideas proposal is designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of LEGO’s most beloved themes.
It has been made up of 1978 pieces!
Space is one of the most enduring themes in the LEGO world and it would be great to celebrate this by supporting this project.
This project has just over 300 Supporters but it also has over a year to reach 1,000 Supporters milestone.
Colide is a fictional car company and Sprint is one of their concept models.
It was named "Colide" (with one L) because the designer thought that sounded cool.
This is a dramatic expression of putting parts together. Sprint as the name of the model as it emphasizes its speed.
It is early stages for this project. It has just 150 Supporters but also has over a year to reach the next milestone: 1,000 Supporters.
I am always interested in your thoughts. Which projects do you like?
These twelve projects have been showcased as the designers made contact with me and asked for help promoting their work. Do you agree with my comments?
There are a couple of additional projects from designers, who have made contact with me recently, that will be featured in my next Ideas Showcase article.
I can be reached by the contact feature on my Brickset profile if you would like your Ideas project featured at Brickset.
Feel free to leave feedback and links to your favourite Ideas.
