LEGO Ideas Now Live

LEGO Ideas

Last week, we reported that LEGO CUUSOO would be replaced with LEGO Ideas. Starting today, LEGO CUUSOO is a thing of the past and LEGO Ideas is now live. You can easily import your CUUSOO account and it links to your LEGO ID. One new thing that I noticed is that you can earn points and badges which they call Clutch Power. The more things you do on LEGO Ideas, the more Clutch Power points you can earn and the more badges you can earn. Take a look around LEGO Ideas and let us know in the comments what you think of it.


LEGO CUUSOO to be Replaced with LEGO Ideas

LEGO CUUSOO has just posted a message stating that LEGO CUUSOO beta will be ending and will be replaced with a new site called LEGO Ideas. Effective April 30th, 2014, everything that was related to LEGO CUUSOO will be migrated to LEGO Ideas. With the launch of LEGO Ideas, there will be some updated terms and conditions.

1. All projects will have one (1) year to reach 10,000 supporters. Existing projects will have until May 1st, 2015 to get the required number of supporters and will keep their existing supporters. Any projects submitted after April 30th will have one year from the publish date to reach 10,000 supporters. Projects that don’t get 10k within the year will expire and will no longer accept supporters. You may be able to resubmit the project but you will start with zero supporters.

2. If you are between 13-18 years old, you may now create and submit projects but if you reach 10k, you will need a written permission from a parent or legal guardian before your project will be considered for the Review Stage.

The current LEGO CUUSOO site will be redirected to LEGO Ideas for 6 months so during that time, everything will be automatically redirected. After November 1, 2014, all links going to LEGO CUUSOO will stop redirecting so you have to update your links.


LEGO CUUSOO Exo Suit Logo and Release Date Revealed


Back in January of last year the Exo Suit project by Peter Reid on LEGO CUUSOO hit 10,000 supporters and after the review stage, it was announced in October that it would become an official LEGO set. The LEGO designers have been hard at work and today, they have revealed the logo for the set as well as the release date of August 2014 courtesy of New Elementary. The AFOL team that was assembled to help plan and market the set along with LEGO employees consists of Peter Reid, Tim Goddard, Andrew Hamilton, Jeremy Williams, Drew Maughan, Tim Johnson, Julie Greig, Yvonne Doyle, and Ian Greig.

The team went on a two day workshop in Stansted, UK back in January and March to discuss how the set would be presented. Andrew Hamilton has built a model of what the meetings looked like below. Read more on what happened during the meetings over on New Elementary. I can’t wait to see the final product in the next few months!

LEGO CUUSOO Doctor Who and Companions Achieves 10,000 Supporters

The Doctor Who and Companions project by Andrew Clark has achieved 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO and becomes the latest set to reach the first review stage of the year. It also becomes the second Doctor Who project to reach the review stage ever since LEGO started allowing these projects to be submitted with the first project being GlenBricker’s version. This version features the TARDIS and it is able to open up to show the inside Console. It also includes a Dalek and proposes a few versions of the Doctor and Companions.

With this new Doctor Who project also reaching the required number of supporters, we can see that the fan base is definitely is there and fans of the TV series do want to see it as an official LEGO set. Whether or not either project will pass the review stage still remains to be seen. It now joins the LEGO Bird Project, the Modular Apple Store, the BTTF – Jules Verne Train, the previously mentioned Doctor Who project by GlenBricker, and The Big Bang Theory in the review stage with a month left until the deadline for any more projects joining the list. Congratulations to Andrew for this achievement. We’ll have the official comments as soon as they are available.

Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, AndrewClark2!


Dear AndrewClark2,

Old and new Doctor Who fans can now rejoice that this project has reached 10,000 supporters!

You’ve done a great job converting the adventures through time and space, which all started in


LEGO CUUSOO The Big Bang Theory Achieves 10,000 Supporters

Are you a fan of The Big Bang Theory? If so, then you guys may be getting an official LEGO set in the near future. The reason is because The Big Bang Theory collaborative project by Alatariel and GlenBricker has achieved 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. If Alatariel’s name sounds familiar, that is because they are the same person who created the Female Minifigure Set which also hit 10,000 supporters back in last June. That project is still being evaluated.

The BBT project represents Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter’s living room and also includes the whole gang including Howard, Bernadette, Amy, Penny, and Rajesh with Cinnamon. The living room has various details such as the Green Lantern’s lantern, the Rubik’s cube tissue box, a model of DNA, and a mini LEGO Death Star. The reason that this project has achieved the number of supporters needed is the fan base and because it’s been blogged by a number of high profile sites. Even the official Twitter account of The Big Bang Theory has tweeted about the project.

It now joins the LEGO Bird Project, the Modular Apple Store, the BTTF – Jules Verne Train, as well as the Doctor Who project, which hit 10k two days ago, in the first review stage in early May. Congratulations to Alatariel and GlenBricker for this achievement and it looks to be a very intereesting review in a few months. Believe in magic, you muggles!

Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, Alatariel and GlenBricker!

LEGO CUUSOO Doctor Who Achieves 10,000 Supporters

The Doctor Who project by GlenBricker and Kaminoan is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. It’s only been a little over two weeks since LEGO announced that they started accepting Doctor Who theme projects on the site and this project just shot up in the number of supporters.

The project suggests 5 minifigures, K-9, and 3 brick-built Daleks. The set itself would consist of the TARDIS Police Box and the TARDIS Console. Keep in mind that LEGO has given a warning to prioritize the minifigures or they have the liberty to choose from a list of suggested options. No doubt the demand for an official LEGO Doctor Who set is there. Now we just have to wait for the first review period to see if it passes LEGO’s criteria of becoming an official set.

It joins the LEGO Bird Project, the Modular Apple Store, and the BTTF – Jules Verne Train so far as the sets in the running during the first review stage. In a fast-moving surprise, The Big Bang Theory now becomes the highest supported project on CUUSOO. The official LEGO comments will be posted as soon as they become available.

Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, GlenBricker and Kaminoan!


Congratulations, GlenBricker and Kaminoan on reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO!

You’ve presented a very nice TARDIS exterior and interior playset, and an assortment of characters from which to choose. We’re looking forward to considering this project in the LEGO Review, but for now excuse us while we go
