The Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google on by GLHTurbo has achieved the 10000 supporters needed on LEGO CUUSOO to be reviewed by the LEGO Jury. If you’ve used an Android smartphone, you’ve may have seen this little guy on your phone before. As I said before, I would love for this set to see the light of production. The project now qualifies for the Spring Review. The Legend of Zelda project now becomes the highest supported project on CUUSOO. The deadline for the Spring Review is March 4th so there may be a couple more sets joining the Bugdroid in Spring Review. Congratulations to GLHTurbo for this great achievement. Read the official LEGO comment below:
Congratulations on 10,000 Supporters, GLHTurbo!
Congratulations to GLHTurbo and all of the supporters of this LEGO® CUUSOO project. Google™ Android™ fans have spoken. We’ve heard loud and clear that you want to be able to make your own Andy out of LEGO bricks. So, we’ll get to work considering the possibility!
Congratulations on achieving 10,000 supporters. We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.
What happens now?
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A LEGO Review Board composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We’ll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product, including playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.
Timing of the LEGO Review
This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in March, which will also include all projects that reach 10,000 between now and March 4. For more information about the quarterly review process, see this blog post.
The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a “go/no go” decision to develop and sell a product based on the “Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google” concept.
When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.
We will post follow-up information and our decision here.
