On the BrickGeekz Blog this week we featured Clockwork Aquarium! by mjsmiley, the latest LEGO Ideas project to gain the necessary 10,000 supporters to advance to the LEGO Ideas review stage. Clockwork Aquarium! now joins 11 other incredible projects for a chance to become a real LEGO set.
That made us wonder, what other projects are currently advancing toward the legendary 10,000 supporter milestone? As of the time of this writing, 25 projects have passed the 5,000 supporter threshold. We picked 10 of our favorites that we believe will reach the Review Stage and have a great chance of being approved for production.
