35, that's ludicrous. And vast majority of them I'm seeing for the first time! Ideas has gone crazy these past few months. It seems like getting to 10K is not a big deal anymore, you just need to either use a popular licence or make a large detailed building (bonus points if it can be both), then post on post on social media and just watch the votes coming Quick comments on all of them, becuase I have nothing better to do, starting with the oldest:
Trabant: that's a better looking model than Lego's Fiat! But it may be too niche of a car, not "cool" enough, plus large scale vehicles are taken by Creator/18+ theme, we haven't had a car in Ideas since Caterham. Chances are slim to none
Bangladesh National Parliamennt: Nice little model of a building nobody outside of its home country knows it exists. It would fail to find an audience in the west, plus it's just an architecture set. Chances are basically none
Temple of Hermit: I voted on this one, it's a beautiful model and would love to see it made. Some say it may clash with upcoming Ninjago City Gardens but I disagree, there's quite a difference between traditional Japanese architecture and what Ninjago does (besides Temple of Airjitzu). We haven't had a set like this since the mentioned ToA, I'd say chances are decent
Caribbean Clipper: it also had my vote, absolutely stunning ship! It's just so unfortunate that in its entire time of gathering support Pirate Bay has managed to reach 10k, be approved and put on shelves. If it weren't for that set, the Clipper would very likely be the one in its place. But now chances are slim to none.
House from Up: I will always vote for Up until it's finally made, hopefully Lego will cave in someday. It's hard to tell the chances with projects already rejected, but they shouldn't be too low with a movie that well regarder.
BMW: good models, but again it's just a large scale car, Lego already does them. chances are slim, but slightly better than Trabant's due to BMW's wider appeal.
Bonsai: another one of my votes, love this Idea. I'm hoping Lego will someday do a tree with a full, realistic looking foliage, Treehouse's was decent but still not on par with some professional mocs. With TLG's recent venture into relaxing building (Forma, mosaics) targeted at adults, I'd say chances are pretty good.
HeroQuest: I know some people would love a RPG board game translated into Lego, but I don't think it's a good idea at all. Not if the board is to be played with like a normal board game, which includes ability to pack it all in one box. I could be wrong though, hardcore RPG isn't really my thing. Chances are likely better than I think (which is poor)
Portal 2: I'm a fan of the games, of course I'd love to have it. It's just a shame that portal mechanics/play features are physically impossible to translate into the real world, although with Lego's revenue they could invest in the technology Somehow I don't think Portal (and other Dimensions licences) has a real chance, but it would be a nice surprise
Sheriff's Safe: really like this one, cool little desk decoration and an actual (simple) locking mechanism should be doable. Hopefully one of the designers will see it as a challenge and make it happen. I'd say it's one of the strongest contenders here
Doggos: pure cuteness, although the models in the project are a bit too similar to the small "Year of the (chinese zodiac animal)" sets in size and techniques. if Lego decides to approve it I think they should do something a bit different. Chances are decent, though.
The Bakery: beautiful, but it's just a building, too similar to modulars and because of that its chances are mediocre at best. Can't deny though a 19th century city building in Lego form (especially with non modern minifigs) would be a dream come true.
Exploratorium: great model, will never believe it's under 3K pieces, but that's not the point. Better chances than previous project thanks to its uniqueness, but If made Lego would very likely trim down its size and functions, potentially losing some of its greatness.
Windmill: another fantastic build, kinda similar to Treehouse with "outdoor adventure" theme but still feels unique enough and it's just a grat design. Chances are decent
The imperial fortress: it's so obvious it's a result of Barracuda Bay's popularity. Nice looking building with pirates nostalgia, that's it. Almost no chances
Gold rush mine roller coaster: don't really like this one, but it could be just me not seeing the appeal of mines, regardless of the setting (Moria being obvious exception ). I don't see it being made, especially as it's clashing with Lego's own Fairground theme
Seagull Bay: even more obvious Barracuda Bay wannabe. There's more substance and detail which makes me like it a bit more, but chances are still close to zero
Southwest plane: excellent job. Ideas is the only platform (outside of Creator/18+) where something like this can be done, so unless Lego is already planning their own plane this project has a pretty good chance
Calendar: another cool desktop accesory, very neatly done. I know I'd love to have it but also I'd be lazy and change the date maybe once month I can see it being approved.
Brickwest studios: fantastic project, very clever way of doing western theme by making it a film set. Would love to see it done, but it may not be feasible with how minifig heavy it would have to be.
Fast food corner: I like it ok, although it's not as strong an entry as the bakery. Also a modular, chances are close to zero
Animal Crossing: haven't played the game, probably never will, but judging by the popularity it could have the strongest chance out of licenced ideas
Community: one of the best comedy shows out there, I would definitely like to have it. It maybe "too soon" as Seinfeld was just approved, but we thought the same about Seinfeld
Discworld: I've never read Pratchett, but this design is definitely eye-catching. It was rejected once 7 years ago, but today Lego may be more daring. It wouldn't surprise me to see it approved.
Ocean House: same deal as the windmill, "outdoor adventure in an exotic setting", with about equal chances; personally I like the windmill a bit more, although the ocean house would surely make for a great set as well
31 Minutos: same as the Bangladesh building, too regional, no wider recognition, no chance
Night at the Museum: It's not hard to tell if people voted because they liked the movie or because they want Lego to finally make a museum set, not just exhibits (hint: it's the latter ). It may have a smaller chance due to double licence (movie and the museum, not really sure how licencing such a venue would work), but definitely wouldn't mind it being chosen
Avatar: seems to be all the rage right now and would sell like hot cakes. Pretty strong chance if there will be no licencing issues.
Naruto: another popular franchise, would find it's audience pretty easily. Wouldn't be surprised if approved
Hocus Pocus: it may be the case of YMMV, but I don't think it's as popular IP as Home Alone; it could be populer as a semi Halloween themed set, though.
Medieval market: already seeing Blacksmith wannabes? And a modular on top of that? No way it's gonna make it. Beautiful design, though
Schitt's Creek: never seen it, but I'd like to someday. Probably about the same chance as other comedy show projects.
Starry Night: may be the best of the bunch, such a fantastic Idea with even better execution surely has at least a good chance. But it needs to be done like the project, not simplified like the mosaics or, even worse, those sketches.
Ratatuille 2 Or How I'm Goint To Pester Lego Until The End Of Time: we've had reuploads before, but never this fast! It could potentially break the Ideas even further: people will follow suit, start resubmitting failed projects, which should hit 10K no problem (people wlll vote for their favorite project, no matter if it's already been rejected) and suddenly half of ideas in review are ones that we've seen before, circulating wave after wave until they're all approved (or the rules change). Pretty interesting to see what comes of it.
Fall Guys: never played it, probably will someday as my nephews want this game. Don't see it having very strong chances, as popular as it is I can't recall any Ideas sets based on current fads
