Update: The results announcement has been postponed to tomorrow, 15 October 2021! There’s also a giveaway you can join.
LEGO Ideas have announced that the results of the 57 (!) LEGO Ideas Projects from the first 2021 LEGO Review Results will be announced later today.
It’s the biggest LEGO Ideas round yet (which closed in May) and naturally, with so many successful projects, I think
You can check out all 57 individual Ideas project submissions on the LEGO Ideas Blog!
Time for some quick predictions – I think we’ll get 2 successful Ideas, and 2 that still require reviews.
My favourites that I think will likely get passed:
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons Paradise by TiagoCatarino
- Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by FACEBRICKUP
I adamantly still believe that LEGO will do an Animal Crossing set, so my money is on Tiago Catarino’s model making it through this round. Animal Crossing has done a lot of licensing, and the timing of the LEGO Ideas announcement lines up very nicely with a New Horizons Direct coming up.
I think Animal Crossing would make for a fantastic LEGO theme – read my editorial to see all the reasons why LEGO Animal Crossing makes perfect sense.
The Office by SoGenius106 / The Office by Lego The Office and The X-Files: I Want To Believe by BrentWaller will be under review, but I can absolutely see LEGO adding the popular sitcom to their slate of “Pop Culture/TV Sitcom” Apartments theme.
The Office does a heap of licensing, and LEGO has an existing relationship with Universal to leverage, and is also exceptionally popular with women, so it would be really silly for LEGO to not take it on as a project as it’ll sell like absolute hotcakes.
Which projects do you think will pass this review round and become a LEGO Ideas sets?
