Steamboat Willie and TV Show Friends will be next LEGO Ideas sets, second 2018 Review Results reveal [News]

It’s been a long time since the last LEGO Ideas announcement, so here are LEGO Ideas Second 2018 Review Results! Ten brilliant fan projects competed to become the next official LEGO retail set, and only one idea was approved by the LEGO Ideas team…

Steamboat Willie by Máté Szabó is chosen to be turned into the next LEGO Ideas product. This tiny project consisting of just 156 bricks can be the smallest LEGO Ideas set ever, unless the LEGO Ideas design team will develop the model into a bigger boat.

Just like many other ideas, this project has a very interesting background story. Steamboat Willie was the first fully synchronized sound cartoon directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. It was the debute of Mickey Mouse in a cartoon the first to be distributed and the third to be produced. Do not miss the interview with Tim on the LEGO Ideas blog!

And one more surprise! The Central Perk Coffee of Friends by Mric76 has also been approved to become an offical LEGO set! The set will mark the 25th anniversary of the series première.

Both sets are expected to launch in 2019. Pricing and availability for the Steamboat Willie and Central Perk Coffee of Friends sets are yet to be announced.

Check out the announcement presented by host Ali Plumb and LEGO Ideas Associate Engagement Manager, Hasan Jensen.

Here’s the full list of reviewed projects:

    I was hoping for the ISS.

    I might buy a Steamboat Willie for my sister and nephew if it is above and beyond.

    I’m in love with Mexico City, and that set would look amazing, and I’m more than sure they’ll release it in the architecture series .

    Im very disappointed with the choices made. Willie the Steamboat is nice, but a rather small set and isn’t special enough. The set from friends, well didn’t we already had something like that? ( big bang theory) or do all tv sitcoms get their own lego set now? My personal choice was the Rolls Royce jet-engine…. very educational and so important for mankind. Without jet-engines we could not fly all over the world, or Lego could not distribute it’s products. Or why not choose the ISS International Space Station? How many people dream to be an astronaut or want to go into space? And if you see how well the Saturn-v rocket from Lego ideas is selling? Lego couldn’t handle the orders!!! Lego should know Space and Aviation sells!! My advice: Lego make that Jet-engine and the ISS , they will sell like crazy!!

    In Oregon where will I be able to buy the Steamboat Willie Lego set ? Will Target be caring them? And what other stores in Portland Oregon? And Gresham Oregon .
