The Sherlock project by flailx is the latest project to hit 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. It had massive support from Sherlockology and quickly rose through the ranks of supported CUUSOO projects to reach the milestone. The project is based on the BBC drama of the same name starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. The set is recreates the the consultation room in Sherlock Holmes’ flat in 221B Baker St. The room consists of Sherlock’s desk, a couple of chairs, and a fireplace. There are also some details that reminds you of Sherolock’s place such as the hat rack which includes the deerstalker hat. The expanded version of the set will feature everything from the original plus more details of the living room including the couch and the wallpaper in the room. The minifigures that are featured are Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, and Mrs. Hudson while the expanded set may include Jim Moriarty, Inspector Lestrade, Molly Hooper, and/or Mycroft Holmes. The Sherlock project now moves on to the Winter review stage. As a huge fan of the Sherlock TV series, I’m excited to see this project hit 10k supporters. We’ll just have to see what happens when the review stage rolls around. Congratulations to flailx for this amazing achievement!
Congrats on 10,000 Supporters, Flailx!
10,000 people have become Sher-locked! In almost as short a time as it takes the consulting detective to solve a crime, this project has reached its goal of 10,000 supporters. The enthusiasm fans have shown is quite inspiring!
This project has everything you need to act out your favorite scenes in from 221B Baker Street, including a consulting criminal and a gaggle of characters for Sherlock to coyly insult.
Well I could go on and on about this project but…everything I have to say has probably already crossed your mind. Now if you excuse me, I need to go to my mind palace.
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 January
This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in January. 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 “Sherlock” 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.
