Lego Nixes the Golden Girls Set…and Every Other Fan-Finalist This Period


Thank you for NOT being a friend, Lego. If you threw a party, invited everyone you knew, you would hear the biggest bitch would be from me, and the card attached would say…”WHAT THE HELL? NO FAN IDEAS APPROVED THIS TIME?” Like, are those Science Adventures figures really so hard to do?

Here’s what they say:

While we don’t share specific reasons why an individual project did not pass, there are a number of reasons why projects don’t make it through the review process. For example:

  • Perhaps we can’t come to an agreement with the companies who own the Intellectual Property rights to the models or characters involved, or it is possible companies are just not interested in having a LEGO version of their product.
  • Other projects sometimes come too close to a number of the products that the LEGO Group already has today or has plans for the near future.
  • Some projects can challenge the rules we have on safe and good building experience for all LEGO builders. We can also have difficulties simply producing some of the larger projects with the production capacity we have for LEGO Ideas.

It is never easy to reject any project, and we are very disappointed that we couldn’t announce the next LEGO Ideas product here today.
