On the LEGO Ideas blog, LEGO has published details of the sets which made it into the final review of 2021. There are 36 submissions altogether, each of which received 10,000 votes, and therefore making them eligible to be assessed by a panel of LEGO employees.
As per every LEGO Ideas review, each set will be assessed on its viability and suitability. The panel will then decide which sets out of the 36 will enter production. It might be just one set that’s chosen, or it might be two or three.
As a reminder, the criteria that LEGO Ideas sets are assessed on includes:
- Products already on shelves
- New products currently in development
- Licensing possibilities
- Production capacity
- Build quality
- Expected demand
- Brand fit
There are some very interesting sets in this review. There’s a mixture of original ideas and sets based on existing IP. We’ve picked out several of our favourites below.
Other Ideas include a Sherriff’s Office, a model based on Gremlins, a McDonald’s restaurant, a Pirate Tavern, a Studio Ghibli-inspired model, an Orchid, a Castle Outpost and a Brooklyn Nine Nine studio set.
You can browse a full list of the 36 sets up for review, including images, on the LEGO Ideas blog.
We’ll find out around summertime which set or sets have been chosen. They’ll join the following LEGO Ideas sets which are currently in production:
