LEGO Ideas Discussion

Recommended Posts

The Ideas team is working pretty slow in my opinion, we have been waiting for the results to be announced for a long time now ... where is it??? Also what about the Ideas Maze set, I mean come on TLG???

I know Emmi, Everyone is waiting, not just you.

@Robert8, Yet somehow it managed to reach 10000 with 9 months left.

He was mocking CM4Sci in that post. Hence the quotation marks followed by a laughing clipart thing.

There is another LEGO Ideas project being heavily promoted on media and is from.................................................................. Star Wars. (Shocking, right?)

The rolling BB8 was just posted this week and it will achieve the 10k milestone soon for sure!

I saw that and supported it! It looks pretty good, and looks like it works really nice. Surprised they're all LEGO pieces, I do remember having one of those magnets.

In other, shameless self-plugging news, my project was advertised by a game site today and got almost 800 supporters in about an hour. I hit 1,000 late last night, and now I'm at about 1850! :grin:

I can't think of a more appropriate forum for it, so I'll post this beseech here:

JK Brickworks, you have got to put your Orrery on Ideas.

It's incredible and would make an amazing set. I think it would be the best Ideas set ever.

That is all.

A member on BZPower pointed out a possible grounds for rejection for the particle accelerator that hasn't really applied to most other projects—it could be a potential safety hazard. Improper construction or modification of the model could essentially turn it into a railgun that could hit someone in the eye with the ball (and we know how Lego is about that). Decreasing the speed of the ball could potentially eliminate that issue but would also severely inhibit the effectiveness of the function. Ultimately Lego might not consider the risk to be worth it, especially since it is already a somewhat niche project in the grand scheme of things.

A couple of us had already mentioned safety as a possible point of concern for the project, though we may not have made it clear why.

At least we know it would be useful for hitting Donald Trump in the eye.

The Secret Service wil jump in front of it. They'll have to take the ball for President Trump.

Guys, that's never going to happen anyway. Trump wouldn't get this set. He doesn't have the balls for it.

I laughed harder that I should've.

The particle accelerator seems interesting. Looks a bit too big though. Would probably buy it if turned into a set as I supported it some months ago.

Doesn't change the expectation that the accelerator project will fail, but that is a cool video to go with it.

Wow Cool which site, You sure are lucky, I would not have expect a roblox project to reach the mark (it didn't yet anyway), there are a lot of roblox haters out there, don't know why; I sure do like roblox, it is a nice idea.

Hey, the 'win a free set' survey is back. Has anyone ever won it?

About that, I took the survey, and it is still on my homepage, thinking it might not have registered, or I wasn't logged in or something.

Oh and YES the Orrery sure is awesome. I loved it.

One more thing, I think if the minifig mech gets more coverage, I can see it being made into a set. It looks very kids friendly.

I guess the Big BangTheory set hasn't been a very good seller, on sale now for about $12 off regular price.

Having the worst price per brick count of an Ideas set hasn't been helping it. I know minifigure count helps to offset that, but none of the minifigures are all that inspired. At the current discounted price, the set is now something I might consider.

Well, it has also been around for a while. I imagine it's done all right for most of that time.

Eh, it's been out since August, and I believe it went on sale... last month? That's not very long. :look:
