LEGO Ideas Tenth Anniversary Fan Vote - Results

Posted by ,

The results of the LEGO Ideas tenth anniversary fan vote have just been confirmed on the LEGO Ideas blog. Four excellent projects were under consideration but only one can be selected for production.

Find out the winner after the break...

International Space Station by XCLD.

This submission received 10438 votes, almost double the number of the second place entry which was Stitch by Legohaulic.

You can view the full results on the LEGO Ideas blog.


The set will apparently be launched during 2020.

Are you satisfied with this result? Let us know in the comments. The considerable strength of support for LEGO and NASA cooperating evidently remains!

Yes yes yes thank you!!!! The final frontier chosen again!

Space is my Jam.

Now what I would really like is a space station done in minifigure scale ;-)

By in Canada,

Unsurprisingly, more space.

By in Bulgaria,

Not a bad IDEA but I don't imagine building all those solar panel sections over and over will be that enjoyable.

such a costly hobby this! My main LEGO interests are Harry Potter, Amusement rides and space! I need to try and prepare the wife for deliveries.....

Really... worst case scenario it is.

Oh come on

By in United States,

Yes!!!!!!! I loved that project and am so glad it is being made!!!!!! Now there is ANOTHER set to put next to the Apollo 11...

By in Netherlands,

I can't get enough of space, definitely a must have for me.

Speaking of space, where do I keep all these amazing sets that keep coming out?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm very happy with the results.

I'm very interested to see how they plan to display this soon-to-be set though.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@SMC - if you add up all the people that voted against the ISS, they outnumber the people that voted for it. That means the ISS shouldn't have won. Plus the people that voted for it didnt know what they were voting for. Re-vote!

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is one that I like. And I hope Lego does not change it to much, like the steam boat.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Dang, I was kinda wanting the Small YELLOW for display... Been a fan of Nathan Sawaya since I was a kid, and I saw it when his exhibit was in Kansas City back in 2007. Hopefully we can get some instructions out of it?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Not surprised. I didn’t vote for any of them since I didn’t want any of them, but with the recent push for space this was a given.

The build looks very repetitive, but I’ll wait until the final product before I decide what I think.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think Stitch should've won. While I love space sets, they're just becoming extremely tiring, especially within Ideas which has already had 4 out of 25 sets be space-themed.

Gravatar
By in Hong Kong,

Yes! We finally get a update of the ISS! While I really liked the old one from the Discovery Series, it does look very dated every time I look at it on my bookshelf..Just hope it it not too expensive.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Honestly, while I love Stitch and wanted him to win?

I knew logically it wouldn't do. Space typically has more fans, and can tie in with things already released in ideas and creator, etc much better in the long term. More people want things that display well together.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Congrats to the winner and to all who voted for this, I hope they will also pony up the cash when it is released. It will not be cheap and looks to be a horrifically boring build.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Lego Space is my favorite theme! Now to figure out where to put this thing.

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

I really hope the solar panel pieces are printed 6x2's attached to a long tile.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nah. Not very interesting.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

The most boring set, but good for LEGO if they can sell 10000 of them. I hope Nathan will sell his instructions, I’d much rather have Small Yellow on my shelf.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Bah. Easy skip.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Enough with the boring space, jesus. Just make a separate theme or something I’m tired of these taking up slots for better things. Unbelievable it got twice the amount Stitch did which is a far better looking model

Gravatar
By in France,

Great choice! I am just wondering how it will be displayed...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Not surprised that the Classic Arcades didn't win. It's the only one that I'd have bought, that would've fit well in my city, and would've probably had the lowest price. Guess I'll have to stick w/B3 for filling my arcade - yes arcade machines are fairly easy to build but I'm no master at printing stickers, which is crucial to making them look right. Oh well, there's already an unobtainable fortune of sets in my Wanted List. It's better this way... sob, sob. LOL.

Nothing against the ISS or other models though, they were great in their own respects. I would love to see pics of a 4488 scale Millennium Falcon docked up to it! Just for poops and giggles :)

Ps. Reading through comments I see many people saying that the ISS would be a boring/repetitive build. I don't think it would be, except for the solar panels... those will be a (repeat steps 1-12) 16x! situation LOL. And they should be printed 2x2 tiles, a lot of them!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

BOR-RIIING! Sorry, just too much stuff already available in a similar vein...

Gravatar
By in United States,

One small step for LEGO, one super-tiny step for originality. LEGO Ideas should be renamed LEGO STEM.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Goodbye Sega.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Very happy to see another space model. Will be keen to see how Lego develops this, as I think it would benefit from a few minor changes, maybe a few more greebles? Also interested in how the stand/base will work as it seems to eat up a high proportion of the piece count. Not an easy task for an orbiting space station model I agree. But surely some anti-grav, magnetic levitation system, can be dreamt up by the design team :-)

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

Too many space themed sets for my taste. Stitch was way more creative in my opinion. The other 2 aren't really unique, because I saw many arcade machines and LEGO sculptures already. Anyway, congrats to XCLD!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hope this means that they finally make the Lego Stitch instructions available for those who want to BrickLink it. I've never BrickLinked anything before, but my son is such a Stitch fan that he would go bonkers over it.

The space station is nice, though now I have the urge to make a Seveneves MOC using it as a foundation. The new martian sets would also be useful for parts in making this MOC.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Dull dull dull. Would have really liked those arcade machines.
Oh well, at least the winner had a clear lead.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh Yeah! This is the set I voted for! It'll look great next to the Saturn V and Lunar Lander on my shelf!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

ISS is a lot more meaningful in history then a 2002 cartoon character but I voted neither of those.

I voted arcade due to minifigs/minifig scale.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

End of the day, I’m glad to see more Space/NASA themed sets, if only to get kids interested in getting out there. It’s the future of humanity after all.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So that means the International Space Station has received ten thousand votes THREE TIMES. In a very brief voting period with counts that weren't made public until the end, it STILL got ten thousand votes and the others didn't. I'd say that's a pretty clear mandate to make the ISS into a set, after all this time. I'll definitely buy it. Maybe one of these days we'll get another Creator Expert space shuttle ....

Gravatar
By in United States,

"While I really liked the old one from the Discovery Series, it does look very dated every time I look at it on my bookshelf"

No kidding. I haven't built that set in a long time but its aged horribly. It was a mistake modeling the then current ISS and not a more finalized version. The node arrangement is pretty funky to (what's up with the shuttle docked on its belly to the side of the Destiny lab for example?) I think this Ideas rendition will make an excellent update, and I am excited to see if they include microscale Soyuz or Dragon capsules with it.

I am sad Stitch won't make it. As excited as I am for an ISS update, Stich would have looked great on a shelf next to Wall-E.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I really hate these apollo/spaceships/etc space sets, but it was a clear winner so I'm happy for the supporters and my wallet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can’t believe the negativity in these comments. It was put to a vote, people voted, and a fan’s model is being turned into a set. All of this is super special for the winner, the people who wanted the particular set to win, and for the LEGO Group’s fan interactivity. Not everyone has to want every single set LEGO produces, and LEGO can’t produce every single set people want. Let’s all just try and be happy for the winner, and then buy the set if you want it. Or don’t.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Well, it wouldn't have been my choice; but I'm also not surprised by this outcome. Congratulations to the winner! ^^

Gravatar
By in United States,

I have a feeling this was rigged by lego, there are too many space ideas sets

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Congratz to the winner, but easy pass for me. Kinda just looks like a bunch of technic bricks with things stuck onto them to me. But who knows, the final product might surprise :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I fear there is going to be space fatigue fairly soon. I get it that for now space is a safe bet for LEGO, but honestly did not see any original Creator set come out in a while, and it was IDEAS that took the role of producing large original sets instead (Voltron, fishing store, Saturn V, steam ship, etc).

Everything is a series, where are the one-off Creator Expert sets? There are only modulars, cars, landmarks, Christmas and now space. So if it has to be this way, at least please don't contaminate IDEAS with the same stuff.

Happy for the people who really wanted this, but I am worried about the long term health of product strategy.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

As a space exploration enthusiast I definitely voted for the ISS and I'm so glad it won. Congratulations to the designer. Can't wait to add it to my growing collection of [real] space themed LEGO sets.

I am however quite disheartened to see so many negative comments towards this set winning. I loved the Stitch model too, but I think there are more than enough Disney toys out there for every single child in the world to fill a house with. How many good STEM themed toys do children have these days? Saw some comments pointing out that there are too many space themed LEGO sets lately - may I ask how many Disney (plus Star Wars and Marvel) LEGO sets have already come out this year?

While many buying this ISS set will be adults, there will be children too, and there will also be children who will drawn to this set when they see the LEGO displayed on a shelf wherever they may be. Anything that gets children interested in science is surely a good thing and I'm certain LEGO are aware of this and how much parents will support them for it.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The way I see it, Saturn V's popularity sealed the deal. There are enough people out there, myself included, who will buy anything space-related, seeing as it has an appeal which transcends Lego more than most other subject matter.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sawaya should start selling instructions for his mini piece. Like many, I've been obsessed with that piece for years, and the ability to own a mini version would be really cool!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Awesome! Can't wait to add this to my collection.

It's disappointing seeing so much negativity towards Space and scientific subjects in general in these comments though. Lego is a construction toy; is it really any surprise that it mainly draws in the STEM crowd?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@ChocolateCrisps
I don't think most people here have anything against space and scientific subjects. I buy most of these sets too, because they are good.

The issue is that it is perceived that they are crowding out other ideas. If there was a standalone theme for them separate from IDEAS and Creator Expert, I don't think there would be so many negative voices.

Take contests like these for example. If STEM is an autowin, there is a fair chance that people who are looking forward to different things will lose enthusiasm.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes! I chose the Arcade, but even after I chose it I was thinking the ISS might've been a better choice.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Little bit disappointing but not completely unexpected. I liked the arcade machines better, but the people have spoken!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Excellent

Gravatar
By in United States,

I’m not a fan personally but I understand that space and Lego have a big overlap so it makes sense. Congrats to the designer!

Gravatar
By in Poland,

I hope there will be the small Space Shuttle!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Would be awesome to get a minifig-scale version, but this will be awesome! (I voted for this one BTW)

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

To be honest, I could happily live without any of these. But the ISS is the only one that I am at least in principle interested in, so on that level I'm happy that it won.

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

I hope they improve the stand, it is too close in colour to the solar panels and I hope the solar panels don’t involve stickers.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It’s somewhat fitting that the ISS was chosen as the 10th anniversary winner, since space has been a constant inclusion in the reviews. There’s a proven interest in space, so I understand why it is chosen when it is.

Part of me would wish other ideas would get made, but LEGO also has other things to take into account (licenses, popularlity, etc.) so space gets made more than some would like. But I think it’s a nice model.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm super disappointed but my credit card is relieved. This was last place on my personal wish list:

1. Arcade: Definite buy :(
2. Stitch : Likely buy
3. Small Yellow: Maybe buy
4. ISS: Easy pass

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I am so happy about this. At least one new Ideas set to look forward to, after the excellent Queen Victoria ship had been rejected. That Stitch movie was the only Disney film ever that I absolutely hated. And the other two sets looked even more boring.
There can never be too many Space sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^ There was a standalone theme for them in the early aughts--it was called Discovery and it was pretty good, actually, but I think overlooked at the time. It even had an ISS, set #7467.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Phew! I was worried when they were doing a fan vote, so much to go wrong with that but thankfully the voters made the right choice.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Meh.
I just do not see this displaying/standing well. I would have preferred other options.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am pleased with the outcome.

Gravatar
By in Bahamas,

I am.... depressed. I was really hoping for Stich, or Little Yellow, or the Arcade. Really anything but space. It’s crazy how many space sets we’ve been getting. But still, congrats to the winner. Nice build overall.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It's a shame that so many people are disappointed in this outcome, but we need to remember that everyone has different tastes, and we all like different things.

For example, I don't really know who Stitch is, but this ISS makes me go "YEEEEEEHHHHHAAAAAAA!" As for other Ideas, I found that old fishing shack to be dull as dishwater, but held my tongue as it was so positively received, and I was still in the warm glow of the majesty of Saturn V. I just (almost shamefully) admit that I haven't bought an Ideas set since that one...

And those that say the current Space sets are "wasted slots"? I feel that Modular Buildings are a wasted theme... Sorry.

See how it works?

Different strokes for different folks.
You can't please all the people all the time.
Live & let live.
Etc.

Celebrate diversity.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

First, I am happy with this choice - to be REALLY happy they would have to make the large scale(original) version. Next, the real problem with the crowding out of other ideas is that The Lego Group is not listening at all to the fans. Despite ambassador people and focus groups and what not, I will say it again: The Lego Group is not listening at all to the fans. People have been asked for (in no particular order) space, castle and pirates for ages (also monorail but that's another story). The Bricklink Lowenstein Castle is sold out. Space sets are all the rage at the moment(and the Lego Movie 2 space set). Pirate cove reach 10000 on IDEA in no time. I mean, come on Lego, a blind person would see that clearer than you do (no disrespect to blind persons).
Give the fans what they want and the crowding out effect will disappear. @CM4Sci said it clearly: make a theme. "Space" which includes: real space, new classic space and any other space sets they want to come up with. Simple, yet, I doubt we'll ever see that. I do hope that instructions for Stitch and Small Yellow will be produced by their respective designer.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Shame. I do like the space theme but this set just doesn’t do it for me. Don’t think it looks like the most enjoyable build and don’t think it’s the most impressive display piece either.
Would have liked Stitch or Small Yellow personally....

Gravatar
By in United States,

easily the worst choice, i knew this was gonna win. there's so much new space stuff available currently, what a bore.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I agree that Ideas is a bit oversaturated with space, but that's because people love space. However, Lego won't make a proper space theme for whatever reason, so this is the next best thing. I'm hoping that the City space line will lead to a real, stand-alone space theme and then Ideas will become more diverse.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would have loved either this or Yellow and I am glad as I can surely find an use for this with my miniature SW ships (Star Destroyer and the like).

Gravatar
By in United States,

While I love all four of the potential ideas here, I voted for the arcade cabinets because I had a feeling the ISS would win anyways. Space is such an incredibly popular theme and while I’m absolutely down for more space sets, I’d like to see some more unique things as well.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

It is weird how we went from having barely any Space Lego to a whole lot of it, very quickly.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Brainslugged seriously? How stupid are you? Of course the other votes combined is going to outnumber the amount who voted for the ISS. That's how a vote works. Perhaps next election the parties with the least support should overthrow the party that the majority voted for and take their place...

Gravatar

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!
On second thought, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO my poor wallet!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm a little disappointed that the ISS model isn't actually the same one that was submitted originally and that received the 10000 votes

Gravatar
By in United States,

I voted for the ISS, but now I'm having second thoughts about that because I now have two D2C space sets I HAVE to get in the next year. Unfortunately, that won't leave much for my Harry Potter budget, but it has always been lower on my priorities than space sets.

Honestly though, I'm not in the least bit surprised. Lego probably already started designing the ISS when they posted the poll. ;) There has clearly been a lot of demand for high-quality space sets from the AFOL community. The fact that almost every Ideas review stage has included one or more space sets makes that obvious. Hopefully Lego realizes that they can take advantage of this by releasing a new realistic space theme, maybe even a NASA specific licensed theme. It should include some playsets like the City subtheme this summer as well as one or two large models every year.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Great another micro scale ideas space set *eyes roll*

I don't see why people voted for this one compared to the awesome Stitch and the Sega arcade builds. Not trying to offend the builder but this build is boring and has nothing going for it for me, and I hate to say it but I hope this set fails on shelves so LEGO doesn't release another space set in the ideas theme though this is unlikely.

Though congratulations to the builder who I'm sure has popped a few bottles of champagne by now.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Woohoo Space set ! I especially love that it is the ISS, which represents the collaboration of many countries !
My only complaint is that I am not really a fan of microscale - prefer larger sets.

Now I just want a space theme !

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

@smc and brainslugged enjoying the Brexit references!

Surprised at the comments about Space being overdone, it is always a highly sought after theme by AFOL’s. Maybe LEGO should have held indicative votes first to see what fans would be willing to support....

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I'm happy for the space fans in the audience. It's a definite pass, from me, but that just means more money for other Lego, so, all's well that ends well, I guess.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well duh! LEGO & NASA are a force to be dealt with!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Isn’t that idea basically just a scaled up version of what we’re already getting right now in Minifigure scale for the latest City wave?

I would much rather have had any of the other ideas, but this saves me money again at least.

@KIERAN2400

Now I get it. XD

Gravatar
By in United States,

Congrats to XCLD and his project! I knew it would be tough to beat!

No matter how you feel about the outcome, let's celebrate the winner and the fact that we even had this fan vote in the first place. The Lego Ideas team could have easily said, "we're done with the 10th anniversary, let's move on" but they decided to do something really special and give these projects a second chance. And now it's like we're getting a bonus Lego Ideas set!

It's all a WIN if you ask me :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's a fine result, but I probably will not be buying this set. The Apollo sets are classic space moments and the ISS just does not have the same feel to me. I really hoped it would be Stitch!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The ISS is the one I voted for so I'm glad it won. I have several of the old Discovery sets but even with those I'm still excited about the Saturn rocket, Apollo 11 lander, and this. PLUS a Lego City Space subtheme.

It's a lot of space in a short time, but the 50th anniversary of the moon landings is as good a time as any for it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Let's just pause to remember that Stitch came from a Space Station of his own. Or should I say Experiment 626... In fact, Little Yellow may be the only one not space related in some form.

I'd say the curiosity in us which spurs fascination with outer space is in line with the curiosity of play we enjoy with Lego. It is not a stretch to have a merging of those two and as more and more adult fans come along who remember the space missions of the past 50 years it will continue to grow in popularity.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Not a fan of any of them personally, but this was my least favorite. Oh well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Congrats to those who are excited for this. And, no worries, an easy pass for me to put my budget regret-free toward other Lego sets I like better.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

I'm also rather "meh" about the ISS and can agree that it's a tad much space in the Ideas theme - note that I'm saying this while I've *just now* ordered the Lunar Lander set. I think my main gripe is just that I don't care that much about microscale, but also that it just looks a little dull - but the way the habitat part disappears behind the main beam in these pictures doesn't help, and of course the final product may turn out better.

I didn't vote but would have gone for the arcade machines, but if printing slots are as precious as some commenters claim we would probably ended up with more stickers than a Speed Champions car. I liked the Stitch too (even if I've never seen the movie and knows nothing about the character), it's just such a fun, colorful little build.

Not sure about the Yellow, it sure is something different but I'm not a fan of the basic yellow color (especially as the quality has been rather variable lately), and I feel it would be all kinds of practical issues with all the loose parts. In the bottleship they're at least contained within the bottle, I feel this one would only work well if they'd found a way to attach the pieces so it only *looked* like they were loose.

When it comes to space themes I'd love to see one with well-built, semi-realistic models based on various locations in the solar system (Moon, Mars, Venus, Titan etc), like something inspired by the pictures you see in popular science mags - and maybe some of the neat stuff that didn't quite make it, like the Space Exploration Vehicle or the SASSTO.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

My wallet Thanks the voters, easy pass for me

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really feel like LEGO needs to simply make real life Space sets a core collector's theme, as Ideas has repeatedly proven its success -- and then remove/minimize them from Ideas. The audience is there, and they deserve their product, but repeatedly using the same avenue to crowdsource it is only more proof it should be regular and not irregular.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

First of all, congratulations to the original designer of this set.

Yeah, I am also in the mweeh crowd. And as soon as ISS was included among the choices the poll was decided - simply because of the general appeal and popularity of the space theme.

Note that of the past 21 Ideas sets to get 10000 votes, 7 were clear space sets, and two more were aircraft related (SR-71 and RR Engine).

Honestly, to me Lego Ideas is about creativity and originality, and for a chance to see sets produced that were unlikely to otherwise see the light of day. To me, these space sets are among the least creative, least original, most likely to be produced in some form. Note how Lego has produced numerous space shuttles over the years, the Lunar Lander, and now has a whole space exploration sub-theme in the City line.

The other three entries were IMHO much more suited to the idea behind Lego Ideas. I am sad that Stitch did not make it.

I for one would like to see - finally - some of the excellent modulars or other sets make it. Or some of the excellent animal designs.

Not sure if I will get this set; if I get it, then probably only because I might be able to use it in class. I fear for the price of the set though....

Congratulations to the winner!

As much as I love space-themed sets (Day 1 purchased the Lunar Lander / bought another Saturn V today), I'd have rather got Stitch. It was the most colorful of the offerings and would've went nicely with the Wall-E set. His articulation added more play value too (don't see a way to swoosh a space station).

At least my wallet can sigh a breath of relief.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

MOAR SPAECE!!!!!! This is getting ridiculous. How about a little variation?

By in United States,

I must be really out of touch with the Lego community. I haven't liked any of the Lego Ideas kits since Wall-E. :(

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

"Are you satisfied with this result?"

No.

The Sega machines were the best hands down. Wonderful little builds that could be used in actual Lego sets.

This is so damn boring. I mean if all four sets were being made then fine, but easily the worst choice won.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@twentythree:
When I first saw Stitch had hit 10k, my plan was to have him gnawing on Wall-E.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Real world space vehicles really should be its’ own theme. I love them and have every Space-themed Ideas Set. But it is always bitter sweet when one gets selected as there is understandable backlash from those wanting more variety within the Ideas theme.
Even when an obviously popular submission like the Falcon Heavy (actually two seperate submissions that both went to review at the same time) is not selected it is frustrating. I wanted that rocket so bad but it would just really annoy so many people and understandably so. Ideas should be wild and unpredictable, like the Pop-up Book and Old Fishing Store sets. It should be an opportunity for sets that would never be made as Official Sets through the normal LEGO internal design processes. It should throw down a challenge to the official designers for what can be built out of LEGO. The still under consideration working Piano submission is a perfect example, I saw it in real life at Brickvention this year and it absolutely blew my mind.
Architecture is no more niche than real world Space in my opinion. The inclusion of Hayabusa early in the Ideas/Cuusoo theme showed how including other countries Space Programs could expand a Real World Space theme. Russian, Indian or Chinese Space Programs could provide inspiration for other sets.
