We move on to an excellent category now. Our judges were tasked at picking their favourite project of the year from the LEGO Ideas selection. This could be one that made it to production, review or is still collecting supporters as you read this. The panel have all picked some pretty decent ones this year. Which project stood out for you this year and why?
I defy you not to want this immediately. I know it probably wouldn’t pass review, they seem to have a thing with projects based on existing licenses and the brick count is probably too high but it seriously deserves a shot.
An incredible rendition of the marionette from the Disney classic. Not only does it look like Pinocchio but it’s a fully working puppet too! Currently it only has 638 votes, but this definitely deserves a chance to be made into an official Ideas set. A lot to choose from, but my winner for 2015.
Richard – Doctor Who and Companions Project
We have been spoilt this year with some excellent Ideas sets to buy as weell as stunning ones that don’t make it pass the review stage. Then on top of that we also have those that have yet to get to 10,000 supporters. Thanks to Ideas we have some awesome minifigures in Dimensions. So, when it came to picking my favourite Ideas sets, I narrowed it down to those that made it to production. Wall-E has its well-known faults and Big Bang Theory, while good, I felt was overpriced. Birds is an excellent build but I think has limited appeal which left Doctor Who. I am a huge fan of Doctor Who and the only thing LEGO could trump this with is by doing Star Trek. So, when the project got the green light it was awesome and the set itself does not disappoint. Add to that the bonus Dimensions level pack and boy, for fans like me, it’s just awesome.
