36 LEGO Ideas projects qualify for the third 2021 review

The qualifying window for the third LEGO Ideas 2021 review has now closed, with a total of 36 projects vying to be approved as an official set.

That’s the second-highest number of 10K projects in a single review to date, narrowly edging past the second 2020 review’s 35 contenders. It still doesn’t come close to the first 2021 review, however, which saw an eye-watering 57 projects reach the necessary 10,000 votes to progress to the next stage of the crowdsourcing process.

As we all know by now, though, increased numbers doesn’t necessarily mean more projects will be approved: just two were given the green light in the first 2021 review, while only one made it through the second 2020 review. As such, we wouldn’t be surprised to see only one or two projects announced from the third 2021 review shortlist.

Among the models in contention are some familiar subjects – space, sitcoms and castles – along with builds from familiar faces, including The Riverside Scholars by Harry Finkel, whose Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs project is still under consideration.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
