    One more year Galibricks go to Hotel Cemar to make a great expositión wit more than 300.000 bricks, a lot of sets, MOCs and these year with the help of "Familias azuis" a NGO that heps and suport familys with childrens with autism. You could see a whole table with creations of childrens of this NOG. We hope that all of you could enjoy this expositión.
  2. Voltron, Defender of the Universe, just would not stand up. ”This was heart-wrenching. It was a possibility that the model might be declined, as it was far from meeting The LEGO® Group’s strict quality requirements,” Samuel Johnson, design manager says of the first Voltron exploratory model. LEGO Ideas 21311 Voltron started its journey as a fan model built by Lendy Tayag. Lendy submitted his model to LEGO Ideas, where it gathered 10,000 submissions and entered the LEGO Ideas Review. But you probably already know that part. As part of the review, LEGO Designers explored the feasibility of the model. Could it be built? Was it stable? Are the elements used still active in the LEGO portfolio of elements? “A few of the designers had looked over the photographs of Voltron and each of them had the comment ‘It can’t be done!’… Overhearing this, I said, ‘Give it to me! Of course it can be done!’” says Sam. Sam’s wish was granted and his team got to work – only to find creating Voltron was harder said than done. “Lendy’s model looked fantastic and was ultra-poseable, which was super eye catching, but when we tried to replicate it by building our own copy, the model would just NOT stand up,” Sam explains. The first exploratory model So they built another one – which stood up better, but had a tendency to lean forward…a lot. So that wouldn’t do either. “It was at this point that we had seen Lendy himself building smaller Voltron models, so we got to thinking, ‘maybe ours should be smaller,’” Sam recalls. Hoping this would fix the stability issue, the design team started experimenting with a different scale. Designer Niek van Slagmaat built the model on the left, while at the same time, designer John Ho built the model on the right. Which lead the design team to… Which stood up! But was a far cry from Lendy’s project…. “So, we sat back and all agreed that this little thing was definitely NOT what Lendy or the 10,000 voters wanted,” Sam recalls. “This is not our Voltron. We have to go big or not at all!” The team rallied, and aspired to create the model the project deserved. Pictured the Design team (left to right starting at the top): Samuel T. Liltorp Johnson, Design Manager; Niek van Slagmaat Designer; Mark Tranter; Graphic Designer, Hans Henrik Sidenius, Model Coach; Jean-Marc Laniox-Warrer, building Instructions Developer They returned to Lendy’s original model, and with great care, attention to detail, input from the IP partner and a whole summer of work, Niek created… Ta-da, the almost final model. It still had to go through a vigorous round of quality testing. This includes testing with young kids and teens to see if the transformation was easy enough, and also to ensure the model could be handled by consumers without breaking. Then, the model was heat tested to look for weak points which were corrected and… The LEGO Ideas 21311 Voltron you know today was born! “The volume of elements used is so complex that we used 16 bags to create the build flow,” Sam explains. “This is one of the first times that a ‘sub-build’ in a LEGO set has its own artwork on its building instruction manual.” This means you could build the model yourself, or with a team of up to five people building simultaneously, because, as Sam says, “team work is the true essence of what Voltron is all about.”
  3. It all started with two very iconic mice. You see, the LEGO® Ideas team was facing a hiccup in their plan – they couldn’t release 21317 Steamboat Willie without Mickey and Minnie. However, the Collective Minifigures team were already planning to release black and white Mickey and Minnie in Disney Collective Minifigure series 2. “Normally the Collectable Minifigure line has exclusivity of their Minifigures,” Explained Sanne Dollerup, Project Manager on the LEGO Ideas team. “They were very reluctant to have us ‘borrow’ those Minifigures, but we convinced them we could do some alternations.” But how to change the Minifigures in Steamboat Willie to make them different, while keeping them black and white to fit the rest of the set? “From that, the idea arose – what about adding silver? Doing this very exclusive, unique, retro thing.” So now, the Minifigures you see in the Steamboat Willie set differ from the ones in the Disney Collective Minifigures series – they have some reflective silvery printing. “After we started doing the packaging layout – we thought how about we do the packaging in silver as well?” she explained. This was trickier than expected. The supply chain wasn’t prepared for it. The silver printing, or foil, on the box wasn’t standard. It had to be sourced from Germany and sent to three vendors in the individual regions. The vendors prepared the packaging and then distributed it to our packing facilities in Jiaxing, Kladno and Monterrey. “The project team, very usually, was in close dialogue with the three factories to see what they were capable of,” Sanne said. Originally, they had plans of making all silver parts on the model appear silver on the box, but quickly they had to scale down their ambition. “If we were to print silver on the packaging to reflect the silver decorations of the model (Minifigures) it would require a specific printing method –e.g. print the silver, then print the dots of the skirt on top of the silver—that not all three vendors could confirm,” Sanne goes on. After that was scaled down, they found printing on a small surface area, such as the piece count in the North American version of the set, in silver foil was impossible. All versions of the packaging of the set – the North American version, the European version, and the Chinese version, had to be aligned on the placement of the silver foil. “The company and our vendors were not familiar with silver foil on packaging before, so it was hand carried all the way through and we had to postpone production ready date two times. It was a tough project and quite amazing that we were successful without any impact on planned launch.” And in case you were wondering, no, the silver packaging did not contribute to the price of the set. Check out the silver packaging (and the rest of the set!) on 21317 Steamboat Willie, now available for sale. Also if you’re in the able, stop by and get your copy signed by fan designer Máté Szabó at: 3rd April, 2019 - Orlando, Florida, USA Time: 5 PM - 8 PM Location: The LEGO Store at Disney Springs (Store locator) 6th April, 2019 - Paris, France Time: 10 AM - 1PM Location: The LEGO Store at Disneyland Paris (Store locator) Internally, the Community Team couldn’t agree if this kind of silver packaging has been done before – certainly not in recent memory. If you can recall a past set with silver foil, please let us know in the comments below!
  4. We can all remember a child who dreamed of working for the LEGO Group and building all day. What could possibly be better than being a LEGO designer? While some of these kids do fulfill their life long dream, others find their calling in other professional fields. This doesn't mean that these kids have lost their way as the joy of building is not limited to LEGO employees. 10 years ago, everything changed and anyone could become a LEGO designer through, what is now called, LEGO Ideas. Before long, adults around the world had dumped out their LEGO bricks and began building what could possibly be the next LEGO set. Since then over 1,000,000 adults have participated in building and voting on what LEGO sets they would like to see next. While this has helped bring the dream of being a LEGO designer to fan designers, it has also helped reignite the imagination of adults around the world who discovered that building with LEGO bricks is not just for kids. At LEGO offices around the world, we took a moment to celebrate our adult fans and the fan designers who have had the honor of successfully creating a project that achieved 10,000 votes and became an official LEGO set. This celebration was special because it was not focused around any achievement from the LEGO Group, but the achievements of our growing adult fan community. Up till now our fan designers have come from a variety of professional backgrounds including video game designers, a spacecraft engineer for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, an aerospace engineer, the head of a national research laboratory, an editor at MIT, a PIXAR animator and director, an architect, and several software developers. So, if you have a great idea for the next LEGO set or perhaps you want to vote on what the next LEGO set should be, make sure you check out Ideas.LEGO.com and have your voice heard. Perhaps you will be the next fan designer! The LEGO Ideas team hosted a challenge where employees could win the LEGO Pop-Up Book. If you would like the opportunity to win the most recent LEGO Ideas set, 21315 Pop-Up Book, you can take the same 5 question survey below that LEGO employees took. Post your answers in the comments section below and one winner will be chosen at random from all entries received. All entries must be received by 12:00pm EST on November 19, 2018. 1. How many registered users are on LEGO Ideas? 2. Name one LEGO Ideas set that became a recurring LEGO theme? 3. Which fan designer also served as the IP approver? 4. Science editor and writer Maia Weinstock designed and submitted which LEGO Ideas set? 5. LEGO Ideas was formerly known as what? CLOSED. Thank you for your participation and the winner will be determined using a random number generator and contacted. Once the winner has been contacted, if agreed, we will share the winner in the comments! (closed at 12pm EST 11/19/2018) Be sure to pick up the latest LEGO Ideas sets at your local LEGO Store and shop.LEGO.com.
  5. Last week I had the big pleasure of attending San Diego Comic Con 2018 together with a big contingent of other LEGO colleagues, although I was at SDCC for Voltron and content that we would produce around it. The LEGO Ideas team present at SDCC 2018 consisted of Darryl Kelley (Marketing Manager), Sam Johnson (Design Lead), Niek van Slagmaat (LEGO Designer) and we worked closely with Billy Trotta and Steve Marucci from the LEGO FanTube channel who were on hand to film and edit lots of great content! It was my very first San Diego Comic Con (or Comic Con for that matter), so it was very exciting to be a part of it. And I can guarantee it won't be the last time I go either - despite the crazy crowds. ^ There was fortunately still time to have a bit of fun and check out all aspects of the LEGO booth and the rest of the convention floor ? The LEGO Group had a large centrally located booth consisting of a store on one side and an experience zone on the other, in addition to a small upper floor where we held interviews and filmed content. The experience zone had a couple of large LEGO sculptures including a mighty Thanos, Aquaman and Ultrakatty, which drew a lot of impressed eyes and selfies, but also had scaled up versions of the Deadpool and Black Lightning exclusives packaging for fun photo-ops (I got in on the Deadpool action as can be seen above). Besides this, the booth also included a mosaic building experience for each day, where fans could build small sections of larger LEGO Movie 2 mosaics, as well as glass cabinets showcasing new/upcoming sets. As part of LEGO Ideas' presence at Comic Con from Wednesday (Preview Night) until Sunday, we were selling a limited quantity of LEGO Ideas Voltron sets each day and we must say we were positively surprised by the very large turnout and number of inquiries for the this set. It was very rewarding to see, hear and experience all the positive reactions, comments and questions from fans. It's always great to chat with LEGO fans! To make these sets a little extra special we had Sam Johnson and Niek van Slagmaat sign the hundreds of boxes we had brought along, with some fans requesting additional personalisation when they spotted Sam and Niek next to the store front. For background, Sam Johnson initiated the process of building Voltron to determine the feasibility of Lendy Tayag's original submission after which Niek took over and worked endlessly on perfecting the design. Throughout the days we had at Comic Con, we had planned a series of videos in collaboration with LEGO FanTube (subscribe if you haven't already), one of which is published already (see below) and is an interview with the Executive Producers of the Voltron: Legendary Defender show, Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, who also happen to be LEGO fans. Besides this I had the chance to host a session together with Sam, Niek and Darryl and a separate one with just Niek and Sam. We also had visits from Let's Voltron, the official podcast of Voltron, who spent time talking to Niek, which you can hear more about here, as well as Norman Chan from Tested.com, who also interviewed Niek (some people - deservedly - get all the attention ?). During the event we had decided that we would give away the built version of Voltron that we had been using during our interviews and show-and-tells and were determined to find a random, passionate LEGO Voltron fan (who had not managed to get a hold of one of the signed boxes) to give it away to on the last day of SDCC. To leave our SDCC 2018 mark on this particular Voltron we signed the different lions as well. We enlisted the help of some of the staff at the LEGO booth who had seen some fans come and go each day without any luck and found the unlucky, but lucky today, Francis - a 15 year veteran of San Diego Comic Con. We invited him, and his family, to join us upstairs where, to his big surprise, we presented him with the signed Voltron model and a few other LEGO treats. It was wonderful to have a chat about Voltron, LEGO and LEGO Ideas with him and as it turns out he was an early supporter of the project on LEGO Ideas. We know that this Voltron has found a good new home! Darryl, Niek and myself fortunately also had time to sneak away from the LEGO booth to attend the panel held by members of the Voltron: Legendary Defender show (which you may have seen on Netflix). This included Executive Producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, story editor Josh Hamilton, and several of the voice actors. It was incredibly interesting to hear their perspectives on as well as their vision for the show, characters and their development and, unfortunately, to hear that there will only be 26 episodes left!! We were also very happy to see that part of the panel included a presentation showing a slide about the new LEGO Voltron set! I did manage to spend a number of hours walking the isles of the convention floor spotting beautiful artwork (unfortunately I didn't have the luggage space or space at home to buy some) as well as wildly impressive cosplays everywhere that I looked. Below are some of those cosplays that I spotted (sorry...totally LEGO unrelated)! Please remember to follow the blog by clicking the "Follow" button on the Blog main page for more great articles.
  6. Last week we learned about friendship and teamwork in the Enfield office by taking a break to watch the first couple episodes of Voltron Legendary Defender (can you believe some of us hadn't seen it?) and build the new LEGO Ideas set 21311 Voltron. One of the many wonderful things about this set is that each of the five lions comes with its own instructions booklet, allowing the four of us to each build a lion. I took on the blue lion, while Darryl did the yellow, Tim did the green, and Alyssa did the red. Tim finished first and had the honor of building the black lion – who is much bigger than the others, while Darryl got to do the sword and shield. Then, in the spirit of teamwork and coming together and other wholesome themes from the show, we assembled Voltron. It was kind of a big deal.
  7. Today I built the new LEGO Ideas set #21313 Ship in a bottle together with my son. It is a very nice build with a lot of details and pretty good looking. A lot of transparet elements used in the bottle so that can be very interesting too. Also all decorated elements are printed which is very nice - the box as well as the instructions look Ideas typical high quality and include details about the fan designer as well as the LEGO designers involved. Building time approx. 1 1/2 hours. We had fun - check out the pictures.
