So many good ideas were rejected, but hopefully they allow them to go into the Bricklink Designer Program.

The selected ideas are great though and I look forward to seeing them developed.

Ditto. Ditto. Ditto.

Rooting for the Medieval Alchemist, Art Center, Mushroom House, Witch House, and Ancient Greek Temple!

The red phone booth looks interesting, its an iconic symbol of the UK and its almost as well known around the world as that other famous red British object, the Routemaster bus. I wouldn't say no to it if the final design looks good and I can afford one. Plus its also got the famous red post box of the Royal Mail in the design as well.

I'll do everything in my power to get the Mushroom House if it ends up on the Bricklink Designer Program

I don't think it will fall flat like the Queer Eye set. The BTS fan base is HUGE and it will be snapped up. Personally it looks a bit bland and not nearly as interesting as the Queer Eye set. I've not seen the music video, but I assume that it's stylistically simple and that the set reflects that, hence the lack of detail. A shame for me and many AFOLs, but I suspect it will bring a lot of joy to many others. Hope the building experience is fun for them.

I just don't understand this BTS set! Random band with random song playing in the radio now and then. Couldn't care less!

But if there really are a lot of fans of this, great for them.

We don't need to like every Lego set, right.

Let's be honest, from concept to execution, it's a embarrassing entry in the history of IDEAS that'll deservedly gather dust in bargain bins before long.

WTF were they thinking? Cringeworthy.

That minigolf set that lost out in the vote (Target?) to the Viking village, needs an invite to the BDP party.

The teaser for this set became Lego's most liked tweet ever. Basic Build? Definitely. Cringeworthy? Maybe. Bargain bin set? I'd have to guess no on this one.

Doesn't translate automatically into sales. Especially when they see what an expensive empty void of creativity it actually is.

I get that it's aimed at pre-teen girls (and their mums probably) but that's no excuse for it to look like it was designed by one.

The Spice Girls BH set also got a lot of attention at launch, but sold very poorly and heavily discounted (40-50%) at S@H before long, lined up for an early EOL fate thereafter.

Best part about the set to me are to see that the Lime Green palm leaves are still made, and not just exclusive to 4 2020 Friends sets.

The Donut and Record store are fun builds, as are the Town-style "icecream to go" but the disco front looks very basic.

A big focus seems to have gone into the stage + figures of course , it's a music group, the stage parts likely include a whole bunch of techic gears, only a few are seen in the images.

I'm fine with LEGO doing boy bands. They make enough sets for everyone and I like different. The song has 1.6 billion views...and it was in English. I was confused.

But this... this is horrible. It might be an okay set if there were some, ANY, printed pieces and for a $100 for 750 pieces? No thanks. That's too much for the 7, pretty neat looking, minifigures.

The Ideas thing was terrible to begin with. LEGO should have downsized the set because no one cares about anything other than the minifigures anyways.

There are a LOT of BTS fans who will happily pay this much for BTS merch and LEGO knows it.

 

Exactly!

People here underestimate BTS fans will to buy anything with the brand on, Lego obviously inflated the price because they know they can get away with it.

If it helps you imagine, this is basically their own No Way Home spoiler set.

It's an easy cash grab. Cheap to produce. Sold to millions of possible customers, who maybe buy another lego set after this one!

This is the only reason they made it a set! They saw how quick it reached 10k subs... STONKS

Lego not really making a Lego set, but rather just cashing in on a BTS merchandise. Perhaps this is their experiment  - trying to see if venturing out on these kinds of things will rake them more money than say, what AFOLs truly want. :(

considering every single minifigure has a new head and torso it must be been extremly expensive to make unless lego reuses the torsos in the summer city wave.

(not even lego marvel is gaurenteed to get new head prints! lego has alot of faith in this set and my prediction is that ultimately, theyre gonna win BIG time)

It's just new minifig prints they do quite a few times every year. Nothing special.

They will win big time when they saw how quick it gained 10k and after a google search on how many fans other bts merch has.
