LEGO Ideas Gilmore Girls – Luke’s Diner Achieves 10,000 Supporters

The Gilmore Girls – Luke’s Diner by Rainer Zufall is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The setting for the project is from a prominent location from the popular comedy-drama show on the WB/CW. It also proposes minifigures of Lorelai, Luke, Rory, Jess, Lane, and Kirk.

The project hit the milestone in less than a month due to its coverage on online publications like Buzzfeed, Fortune, Time, and Mashable, just to name a few. I honestly did not watch Gilmore Girls so I’m not sure of its popularity even though I’ve heard of it before. It now joins The Blues Mobile, SEGA Classic Arcade Machines, Dungeon Master, Red Arrows Hawk, Venetian Houses, and Jeep Wrangler, NBC’s The Office, Tron Legacy Cycle, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Surf Rescue, and Medieval Watermill as the projects to reach the First 2017 Review Stage.

LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309) Officially Revealed

LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309)

LEGO has finally officially revealed the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309). The set will consist of 1,969 pieces and retail for $119.99 and it stands at about 1 meter high (1:110 scale). This will be the largest LEGO Ideas set to date and will be available starting on June 1. Yes, it will come out the same day as the LEGO Creator Carousel (10257) which was announced yesterday.

If you didn’t notice, there’s one little Easter egg hidden in the piece count. As I mentioned above, it has 1,969 pieces and that number is also the year that the Apollo 11 landed the first humans on the moon with Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin.

Felix and Valérie’s collaboration was guided by a shared passion for space exploration

Despite never meeting in person, space and LEGO fans Felix Stiessen and Valérie Roche beat the odds with their wonderfully brick built version of the iconic Apollo rocket. It was a collaboration that tested their skills in numerous ways but, as it turns out, the long-distance collaboration also proved to be a significant benefit to their project, as Felix states “there were often times when one of us abandoned the project for a few weeks and came back to it later; however, thanks to the fact that it is a collaborative project, it was always the case that one of us continued making progress on the project and re-motivated the other”.

Felix and Valérie’s collaborative spirit was tranferred to the LEGO design team as well, who took over the project once it was approved, in order to ensure it lived up to LEGO quality standards. Two designers, Michael Psiaki and Carl Thomas Mirriam, motivated by their enthusiasm for space, teamed up to bring the final model to life. “We were actually not asked. I was so excited when I heard that the project was potentially going to happen, and told Carl about it because I knew he was also a space fanatic. We decided it would be really cool to work together since it is such a big mode, so we approached the Ideas team about helping develop the product”, Michael said.
