The Legendary Stratocaster (Music to our ear Ideas contest)
Fan Designer: Tomáš Letenay aka TOMOELL

This LEGO Ideas project isn’t the standard fan-voted approach as showcased for the other 7 submissions above. This design was submitted under the “Music To My Ears” LEGO Ideas contents which is a themed build contest. The contents had two separate potential winning paths – fan votes, and direct decisions from the Product Idea Review process.

While fans got to vote for their favourites, the results of it being a LEGO Ideas set had nothing to do with the selection process from fans, nor was there any obligation for LEGO to use the winning entry. The fan-voted designs won gift prizes, and The Legendary Stratocaster entry came in at 7th place with 9 designs in total. The LEGO Ideas team was more impressed by this and shortlisted this as a LEGO Ideas set for review and eventually selected.


There you have it, the current list of LEGO Ideas approved projects. While they all may not be your favourites, the LEGO Ideas designs and selections may not always target the typical LEGO fan and are meant to cast a wider audience that hasn’t been exposed to building LEGO in a while or at all. If you do have a few that you’re eyeing, tell us about them in the comments below.

    Most of these projects fell pretty “meh” to me, mostly just more nostalgic throwbacks to classic shows and movies (and I guess video games now.) At least the globe and guitars look like they could be pretty interesting.

    I don t know, the globe has the potential to show us new techniques we did not think of like the Saturn V

    Looking forward to the globe. Really don’t care at all about any of the others, in fact, I would almost say I hate some of the others. Not the model, but the idea itself. I am not a fan of Home Alone or Sienfeld, and really don’t think either of those deserve to be Lego sets.

    Typewriter is cool, but TLC chose that over the Bionicle set. Winnie the Pooh is kinda interesting. the rest are pure meh.

    There was a set 21103 The DeLorean Time Machine released back in 2013. If you’re not referring to that, I don’t think Lego’s particularly interested in another release of the same car.
