First 2021 Ideas Review Results

The LEGO® Group just announced the first 2021 Ideas Review Results. The review consisted of sets that surpassed 10,000 supporters on the Ideas network in between January and May 2021. In total, 57 projects reached the review stage. Of the 57 finalists, only two will become actual LEGO® sets. I have posted the summary image of all 57 sets below. However, you can see more detailed shots by swinging by the official LEGO® Ideas site (click here to go view the article).

The first set to make it through to production is the Jazz Quartet by Hsinwei Chi from Taiwan. He originally created the piece as an entry into the Music to Our Ears competition which also brought us the Fender Stratocaster. Subsequently, he submitted the quartet model on the Ideas site after not winning the competition. Jazz Quartet garnered 10,000 votes in a mere 50 days. The fan model consists of almost 1000 bricks. However, the brick count may change as the design goes into production.

The second submission to make production is The Office by Jaijai Lewis from New York City. This is not the first Office inspired set to reach LEGO® Ideas, nor is it the first from Lewis. Fans of the show can rejoice knowing that persistence has finally paid off. The design reached 10,000 supporters approximately two months after posting. Jaijai’s design features roughly 1900 bricks, with several Minifigures on top of that.

In addition to the two upcoming sets, The LEGO® Group labelled a third submission as “requires further review”. Reportedly, the creator of the idea has not “been able to tick off all the boxes needed to move forward with it and a further review is needed.” The concept is for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by Harry Finkel. This marks the second time this same idea has been up for review. More news about the idea will come in early 2022.

Until next time,

  • That Jazz Quartet looks so amazing. I’m so glad it was selected.
    The Office, on the other hand, looks… not amazing. Would’ve preferred something else other than another sitcom.

    • Thanks for sharing. Glad you’re into at least one of them🙂

      • The funny thing is that I actually don’t care for jazz as a musical style, but as a lego set, this is creative and beautiful.

        And I do rather like The Office as a TV show, but as a lego set, it does nothing for me and I have zero interest in it.
