It seems yet another LEGO Cuusoo idea has reached 10,000 likes! This time it’s the Cuusoo idea called EVE Online Ships – Rifter created by czar. This idea is based on a popular online space mmo video game. What do you think about this idea, will you buy it?
Official statement from LEGO:
“You’ve done it! You and all of the EVE Online fans voting for this have together achieved 10,000 supporters for the EVE Online Ships – Rifter project. We’re fans of awesome spaceships too, so we’re excited about this one.
You’ve built quite an impressive LEGO Rifter. It captures the essence of the ship with LEGO bricks, and it will serve as a good starting point as we explore the possibility of transforming this into a LEGO product.
Congratulations on achieving 10,000 supporters. We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.
What happens now?
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A “LEGO Jury” 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
From here forward, the LEGO Review will take place quarterly. The next review will be held starting in June and will include all projects that reach 10,000 between now and then. We’ll update the LEGO CUUSOO blog with additional details soon.
The review is a thorough process and from its start, it will take several weeks. When finished, we make a “go/no go” decision to develop and sell the Rifter. We will inform you of our decision, and if green-lighted, 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 takes several months.
We will post follow-up information and our decision here.”
