This is my entry into LEGO Moments in Space contest on IDEAS.
If you like it, please vote and it may become Gift with Purchase Set available at Shop@Home. The set has 2 modes – first is the rocket standing on a platform that can be great ornament on any shelf, second is the rocket in the very moment of start, which looks even greater.
Maria Skłodowska-Curie was one of the most outstanding figures in the world of science. Born in Poland, she studied and worked in France. Together with her husband, a French physicist – Pierre Curie – she discovered two radioactive elements – polonium and radium. She was the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize and the first person in the world and the only woman to receive this award twice – in two areas – chemistry and physics. She was friend of Albert Einstein. As one of the first women she made a driving license. She was not afraid to break old rules in the world where woman were just starting to fight for their rights.
I am very impressed by the achievements of Maria Skłodowska-Curie and therefore I decided to honor her in a way that I am the most familiar with – with a LEGO® creation. By voting we can make the scene an official set. Let’s do it!
Over the past several months, the LEGO Review Board has carefully reviewed the 11 projects that reached 10,000 supporters between January and May 2017, our first review qualification period of 2017. We’re grateful for the energy and effort that each member has put into their project, as it’s certainly a big feat to get 10,000 supporters in itself. Congrats to everyone!
Tron Legacy Light Cycle
Congratulations to BrickBros UK for their inspired design, which will officially become one of the next LEGO Ideas sets!
We can’t wait to see Tom and Drew’s Tron Legacy Light Cycle come to life in LEGO bricks.
There was also one more project selected to be made Lego Ideas set:
Voltron – Defender of the Universe
A big congratulations to len_d69 on becoming the next official LEGO Ideas fan designer!
Leandro’s passion for Voltron started at a very young age when his parents bought him a Voltron toy. From that moment on Leandro was hooked. Building with LEGO bricks allowed Leandro to celebrate his passion for Voltron – Defender of the Universe even more.
And next time one of the following sets will be made official LEGO Set.
Tim Courtney of Lego Ideas, has informed us on LEGO Ideas Blog about update in their Guidelines and House Rules and Terms of Service to clarify the range of submission they are able to produce as LEGO Ideas sets. This includes new limits to project size, scope, and subject matter. We’ve also simplified guidelines for collaborative projects. You can read the changes after you klik read more, but for TLDR lovers here are main changes in a nutshell:
If an IP makes into LEGO Ideas set, no other submissions with the same IP will be accepted.
It is now clear that the size limit for a project is 3000 pieces.
New restrictions on the projects are: No weapon replicas, no elements inappropriate for LEGO, no Dimensions expansion ideas.
Easier to submit cooperation projects
Guidelines what to write in submission description.
So Lego Ideas got a little bit limited, then on the other hand the rules are much more clear now, and it is easier to guess what to expect od your submissions. Not being LAN Ambassador anymore, i will be able to put some of my projects on LEGO ideas too, so stay tuned.
