The Batmobile Tumbler Minifig Scale project by Brent Waller has just hit 10000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO and will now officially move on to the Summer review stage in June. Then, the LEGO Jury will decide if the project meets LEGO’s standards of playability, profitability, and safety. Congratulations to Brent for this amazing achievement! The League of Legends of Lego – The Raid on Baron Nashor project now becomes the highest supported project on CUUSOO. Below is the official statement from LEGO:
Congrats on 10,000 Supporters, BrentWaller!
It’s a black … tank!
Again, very well done minifig-scale Tumbler, BrentWaller. We love how it fits a Batman minifigure inside.
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. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.
The LEGO Review Begins in June
This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in June, which will also include all projects that reach 10,000 between now and June 3. 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 Batman Tumbler Minifig Scale 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.
