We’re less than halfway through the qualifying period for the First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review and already we have 8 amazing projects that have achieved 10,000 supporters. You can view these projects by browsing through the Ideas page of the BrickGeekz Blog.
That got us wondering, which projects are next in line to qualify for the review? Currently there are 5 additional projects with more than 9,000 supporters and barring some LEGO Ideas disaster, all of them are on pace to qualify well-before the end of the review period. Here they are, in order of the number of supporters as of February 20, 2020.
Indiana Jones Trilogy
Jumping into the lead with 9,508 supporters is Indiana Jones Trilogy by BenBuildsLego. Ben has earned quite a reputation over the last year with his entertainment-based landscape sets featuring movie trilogies like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, which are easy to find on social media sites. For LEGO Ideas, Ben has shared a set based on the trilogy of Indiana Jones movies. Well, the three good movies, anyway. While you’re checking out his submission, you may also want to take a look at another LEGO Ideas submission which happens to be a personal favorite of mine, Yellowstone National Park.
Bricks & Blooms
Bricks & Blooms by Bricked1980 is so well presented that it’s often mistaken for an actual LEGO set. With 9,505 supporters, this 3-level modular building features 2587 pieces and features a garden center with a fruit and vegetable stall, a cafe/restaurant, and an aquatics department. Bricked1980 has another amazing modular build on LEGO with 6,408 supporters, the Brick Town Police Station.
The Great Fishing Boat
Maritime fans may want to check out The Great Fishing Boat by EdouardClo, currently at 9,378 supporters. This double-masted ship features a dark red and turquoise color design, a wooden deck and hatch for the hold, a crane to stow and unload fish containers, and four minifigures.
Knight Rider – KITT
Fans of cheesy 1980s television shows will surely love Knight Rider – KITT, currently at 9,043 supporters. Designed by Jimmi-DK, this modified 1982 Pontiac Trans Am is 336 mm (13.23 in) in length and 80 mm (3.15 in) in height.
