A flurry of LEGO news today as alongside the LEGO Dimensions Phase 2 reveal, we get another huge surprise from the LEGO Ideas team. They’ve announced the results of the third 2015 review…and out of all the projects that were reviewed, the winners are:
The Beatles Yellow Submarine project by Kevin Szeto! Complete with minifigure versions of the ultimate boyband of all time, The Beatles Yellow Submarine is bound to be a huge hit for LEGO. I am frankly astounded that this one made it through, especially since we’re going to get an official Beatles and LEGO collaboration. Definitely didn’t see this one coming, but very glad nonetheless.
And yes, I would love to have LEGO Minifigure versions of George Harrison, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Ringo Starr. LEGO Yoko Ono sadly not included in this lineup.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough – the LEGO Ideas Third 2015 results has not one but TWO successful projects. The Apollo 11 Saturn V designed by saabfan and whatsuptoday has also made the cut and will be turned into a LEGO set. The Saturn V rocket will also apparently stand at one metre tall, so I’m guessing that this is going to be quite a massive Ideas set.
The size of it has definitely piqued my curiosity (not the Mars rover) and I can’t wait to see how LEGO pulls this one off.
There are no firm details on the final product design, availability and pricing for The Beatles Yellow Submarine or the Apollo 11 Saturn V set. Watch this space to find out more soon.

The LEGO Ideas team have also shared projects that are in consideration for the next review results, which should be announced sometime in Fall (Northern Hemisphere) or Spring for us antipodeans.
Wow, two huge announcements in one day.
