The LEGO CUUSOO Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary project by BrentWaller has achieved 10000 supporters and will now move on to the Fall 2013 review. The Ghostbusters movie will be celebrating it’s 30th anniversary in 2014 and the project will feature many elements of the movie including Ecto-1 and the main characters of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore as well as Slimer. The image does show the Firehouse but Brent doesn’t think that it will be included in the final product. With this achievement, Brent has become the second CUUSOO creator to have two or more projects to reach 10000 supporters with his Batmobile Tumbler Minifig Scale being the first project. mb_bricks was the first creator to do so. The Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary has been climbing the ranks of supporters the past few weeks and today has finally reached the ultimate goal of 10000 supporters. Congratulations to BrentWaller again for reaching the goal and if everything goes well, we’ll be seeing a Ghostbusters set in the near future and will be joining the Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine (21103) as an official LEGO CUUSOO movie set.
Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, BrentWaller!
This project couldn’t help it … it just popped up there! Congratulations on reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO.
Ghostbusters fans around the world have shown that they want to see a commemorative LEGO set and you’ve now reached the milestone where we will evaluate the potential of creating a set based on your proposal.
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 September
This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in September. 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 “Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary” 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.
