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 is the first project to reach the Second 2017 Review Stage.

    I want this so bad……

    I really want this to make it through, but doubt it will….I do hope they put some consideration into how quick it reached 10,000 supporters.

    • Sid Dinsay

      Why? Was there something weird about how they garnered support?

        Did you read the article???

        “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.”

        • Sid Dinsay

          Yes I did. So what? The creator got widespread support. What is wrong with that?

          • zachary adams

            Man, you are all over the place. I believe Danny was stating that this should get “extra points” in the review process because of how/how quickly to reached 10k. You asked if something was “weird” when it clearly states how they got the votes. There is nothing wrong with it, just different/more mainstream than others before.

          • Sid Dinsay

            Ohhhh I see, I misread the original comment as taking issue with how quickly it got to 10k supporters. My bad!!!

          • Danny Rww

            That is correct….I was saying that there should be some consideration for how well a set will sell when it gets votes that quick. Maybe there is… they are so secretive about how they make these decisions.

            So basically, the projects who are unable to get widespread publicity due to the inability to reach social media or other sites should be at an even further disadvantage by the deduction of points?

            I am specifically thinking of the teenagers who post on Lego Ideas but are unable to go on social media. Are you saying that those projects should be viewed as less than those who have widespread publicity?

          • Danny Rww

            I don’t think it is so much about penalizing projects. More to the point Lego wants a set that will sell. If a set gains support quickly (and from people who may not be into Lego as I saw this come up in news feeds from some very non-Lego related sights) it may be a sign to Lego that the set will sell well. In the end, we really don’t know how much this impacts their decision anyways.

          • The Anonymous Hutt

            Okay…so you mean that no literal “points” should be taken off, you are just saying Lego is more likely to consider the sets that reach support quickly?

    Who are the Gilmore girls?

  • HUN_Sector

    Does not ring any bell…

  • HaileyBricks

    As a fan of the tv show, I’m looking forward to this project. The dinner is iconic in show.

  • Sid Dinsay

    Oh, I love everything about this set, right down to the old rocket booster elements as the barstool bases.

  • David Garrison

    Way cooler than TBBT. Would definitely buy (as long as it came with Kirk). One of the things I love about sets like this and TBBT is all of the new clothing prints they come with. I am imagining an awesome backwards hat piece with hair for Luke, maybe some good flannel shirts…
