The LEGO Ideas review board had the amazing opportunity of reviewing 11 different projects that reached 10,000 votes between January and May, 2017. It’s a huge achievement to get 10,000 votes, so firstly a huge congratulations to all the sets listed below. While a special mention was made to the Surf Rescue set, it was decided that the LEGO Tron Legacy Light Cycle would be approved for release in 2018.
LEGO Tron Legacy Light Cycle Set
The LEGO Tron Legacy set was officially announced in the video below:
The project was started in November 2015 and took roughly 1.5 years to reach 10,000 supporters. The set will be in the region of 100-200 pieces but the final product design, pricing and availibility is yet to be decided. That being said, we expect the price point to be around $24.99.
The Devon based designers Tom and Drew of BrickBros UK wanted to share their passion for the famous bike that Sam Flynn rode. You can find out more about Tom and Drew in their 10k club interview.
The approved LEGO Tron Legacy Light Cycle set has been met with some controversy. Users were quick to point out that LEGO have been pushing for more original ideas, yet they approved a licensed set.
The general concensus seems to be that Sega Classic Arcade Machines, Quest Builder, Red Arrows Hawk, Venetian Houses, NBC’s The Office, Surf Rescue or Medieval Watermill should have been approved instead, although Tron’s Light Cycle does look like a great set.
Surf Rescue Set Special Mention
Despite deciding not to turn the Surf Rescue project into an official LEGO ideas set, LEGO have offered to work with the designers Damien and Aiden on some special projects, helping to share their story and message.
