This is definitely the right place, and yours is definitely a great build. It's a deviation from the Rivendell we see in the films, for sure, but it makes up for that in the quality of the build. You've detailed the buildings and made the trees very cleverly given the small scale of the model.

Thank you! Very glad you think so! It is a bit different, but the main difference is that I don't have all the buildings Rivendell has, because otherwise it would be too big! XD Thanks again! :D

I've got one more to add, it's been on Ideas for a few weeks now, and steadily gathering support. The Medieval Carpenter. The backstory is that he used to be one of the Forestmen (along with the Medieval Butcher), and now lives a more quiet life - until Robin is in need :)

Great project!  Really enjoy how you’ve been listening to comments and opinions and even seeking help from the BrickLink community to make this the best set possible under the restrictions you’ve been given.  Looking forward to helping fund this!

4 non-licensed actual Castles and 1 Marketplace, amazing round .

Also there's still Castle in the Forest in the AFOL Designer 2021 Invitationals.

Hopefully TLG takes a hint on castle/medieval. Fingers crossed at least one gets made into a set.

I dont believe TLG would make another medieval-castle theme so early, I would love it but dont see it.
I am more inclined to think they would go for the Paraoh or Violin.

It likely wouldn't be "so early" when the set is actually released. Don't forget, the Medieval Blacksmith was approved in the second 2019 review. So even if a medieval project gets approved in this current review period, it may not actually hit shelves until 2023.

Congrats to everyone who made the review, including the several people who got multiple submissions to 10K in the same period!

 

 

On an unrelated note, does anyone have suggestions for avenues to draw in supporters, beyond here / Flickr / Instagram? I'm coming up on the 2 week mark, and I'm definitely seeing the initial surge of support slow to a trickle.

I already spent my three votes, but it was a really hard to choose between all of the awesome entries that made it. Your build looks awesome - good luck with the voting =)

Just wanted to make sure this doesn't get lost, if anyone has suggestions.

Ok, no worries! If the model is built on Stud.io, then I'd definitely recommend uploading it to Bricklinks gallery!

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give that a shot - I modeled it in Bricksmith for the lsynth support on the rigging, but I think I can probably add the rope primitive as a subfile and see how it goes.

If anyone still need convincing, check out this video by the designer of the castle in the forest! Show cases the latest build and great to see the play features in action!

Btw, the Bricklink designer program crowd funding is now delayed until 1st July.

The structure of the crowd funding is also changing. In summary, they will split the remaining 26 projects into 3 rounds. Each round will see 8-10 projects being put up for funding and the first 5 to reach target gets funded. The rounds will be 2 months apart so they are spacing out our spending and also the workload for the Lego supply and bricklink team. This also means a total of 15 projects should get funded instead of 13 in the previous structure.

First round selection is already chosen with 8 projects and includes the castle in the forest so get your wallet ready by 1 July!

Lucky me, not too many of my favorites on the first batch.

Btw, it's "a total of 15 projects could get funded". Not "should". It's no certainty that 5 of each batch get the required amount of backers.

Wow, great video.  I didn't need convincing, but this video highlighting the design and features of the set certainly makes me more excited!

I didn't realize the date had changed, thank you for pointing that out!
