LEGO Ideas has just released a new blog post to update their guidelines and they’ve announced that they “will no longer accept new submissions based on third-party licenses that are active in the LEGO Group’s portfolio.” This was a culmination of projects that were not original ideas, which the platform was intended to be used for, and been flooded with licensed material that LEGO already has licenses for. You can read more about it in the link above but here’s a list of the Restricted IP from LEGO Ideas:
