A few months back we all heard of the Android Lego Concept that needed 10,000 supporters to be eligible for a review on the Lego Site. Well today, I can happily say that the goal has been reached and Lego is now reviewing the project to decide whether it should be put into production and sold.
A spokesperson for the company said:
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A LEGO Review Board 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.
This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in March, which will also include all projects that reach 10,000 between now and March 4. For more information about the quarterly review process, see this blog post.The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a “go/no go” decision to develop and sell a product based on the “Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google” concept.When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, 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 also takes several months.
