On March 28, 2012, Peter Reid posted his Exo Suit project on LEGO CUUSOO. Today, the project has achieved enough votes to be considered by the LEGO Jury to become an official LEGO set. The Exo Suit is Peter’s most popular MOC and has been featured on page 251 in The LEGO Book. It may have taken a while to get the supporters but it was well worth the wait. Now the project is now eligible to go to the Spring Review stage on March 4th. Congratulations to Peter for this amazing accomplishment!
The Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google project by GLHTurbo now becomes the highest supported project on LEGO CUUSOO. Read the official LEGO statement below:
Congratulations on 10,000 Supporters, PeterReid!
Again, beautiful model and well-deserved success! It’s great to see a model that carries the essence of classic LEGO Space forward to the “present day” of building qualify for review.
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 March
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 Exo Suit 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.
