It’s a day for big news first Dimensions and the announcement from LEGO Ideas that two more sets have been given the greenlight to be made into sets; The first is the Beatles Yellow Submarine originally submitted by Kevin Szeto and the second is Apollo 11 Saturn-v rocket by saabfan and whatsuptoday.
Here is the announcement from Ideas:
Over the past several months, we’ve once again reviewed nine amazing projects that reached 10,000 supporters between September 2015 and early January 2016, which was our third review qualification period of 2015. Here are the results:
Beatles Yellow Submarine
As an amateur musician and songwriter, Kevin Szeto, wanted to show his affection for The Beatles through a LEGO tribute to the iconic British rock band. He really brought it to life in vibrant and fun colours, and even included the whole band as LEGO Minifigures. Place them in the submarine or build your own stage and reproduce The Beatles’ greatest hits!
Apollo 11 Saturn V
That’s one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind! saabfan and whatsuptoday have built quite the testament to human exploration. Standing approximately 1 meter tall, this LEGO rocket will soon be ready for lift off.
Design, pricing, and availability
We’re still working out the final product design, pricing and availably for both Beatles Yellow Submarine and Apollo 11 Saturn V, so check back on LEGO Ideas later this year for details.
Next Review Results Fall 2016
The next batch of LEGO Ideas projects are already in review. We’re considering these projects that reached 10,000 supporters between January and May 2016 as possible future LEGO sets. We’ll share results of the First 2016 LEGO review period for projects that qualified between January 2016 and early May 2016 later this fall.
