The Japanese Old Style Architecture by Taxon55 has achieved 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. The project was one of the first sets that were posted on CUUSOO way back in 2011 and it now reaches the Winter 2013 Review Stage. The project uses various building techniques to recreate structures that personify the essense of Japan such as the shrines and hot springs.
The Japanese Old Style Architecture joins the Legend of Zelda: Iron Knuckle Encounter as the second project to reach the Winter 2013 Review Stage. Congratulations to Taxon55 for this achievement!
Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, taxon55!
Congratulations on this achievement, to both taxon55 and to all supporters of this excellent LEGO® CUUSOO project.
As we’ve said before, this is a very well designed project that captures the essence of these traditional Japanese buildings. The models really make you feel like you’re there! We look forward to considering your project in the LEGO Review.
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 January, which will also include all projects that reach 10,000 between now and January 6. For more information about the quarterly review process, see this Knowledge Base article.
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 Japanese Old Style Architecture 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.
