LEGO® Ideas continues to be a source of some impressive build skills and has given us an equally impressive selection of sets over the years. So few months I’ll be rounding up some of my favourite Ideas projects, which deserve being highlighted. If you like what you see, follow the links and get voting. If a project reaches the magic number of 10,000 votes it could become a brand new LEGO set. There are also various stages of vote thresholds, which activates expended time which projects can remain active on LEGO Ideas. Giving them a better chance of getting to 10k. So let’s take a look at my favourite LEGO Ideas projects this month.
Stitch by Legohaulic
Stitch is back, after the first version of Disney’s loveable alien hit 10k but didn’t move past the review stage and then missed again during the 10th Anniversary Fan Vote. This new version is just a fun as the original project but it has a few tweaks to the design. The new version of Stitch also has the alien transformation, which has extra arms and tentacles. Hopefully this will also hit 10k and LEGO Stitch will finally appear on store shelves.
Red Dwarf Starbug by Bobs Vintage Bricks
Red Dwarf has a cult following especially here in the UK, the project transforms the famous mining vessels shuttle craft into a brick-built ship. The fun looking design of the craft translates well into the medium of LEGO and the hapless crew (brought to life by Minifigs.me) are also included in the design.
Sonic Mania by toastergrl
With the blue blur ringing up impressive figures at the boxoffice, a new generation is discovering the classic 90s videogame hero Sonic. This project brings Green Hill to life and it works surprisingly well in LEGO form. I love the brick-built characters, which look just like their digital counterparts. With LEGO delving into videogame properties just lately, these classic IP are ripe for the LEGO treatment.
Iron Giant by BrettCuv
This is another Ideas project which has previously been submitted to the platform and hit 10k. Just like Stitch above, the original design has tweaked and improved for this new project. The Iron Giant is a much loved movie and the main character looks great in LEGO form. It looks like a fun build and a great display piece.
LEGO Doggo by legotruman
Legotruman has created a number of cool custom BrickHeadz, which is how I discovered these fun-looking LEGO pooches. They are almost in the same style as BrickHeadz, which give them a stylised look. They remind me a little of the Nintendogs games. There are various breeds included across the seven different builds.
Lifeguide Shack by adwind
This may not be a big build or based on a known IP, but I just love the design of this lifeguide station. You can just imagine seeing it perched in the golden sands of a US beach. It might be a small build, but it packed with character and looks like it would fit nicely alongside LEGO City sets.
