Q: Why didn’t (PROJECT NAME) pass the LEGO Review? You didn’t give a reason.
The LEGO Review Board evaluates each project according to the criteria we outline in our Project Guidelines and House Rules. Each project that enters the LEGO Review receives a thorough and fair analysis. The contributing reasons to a decision on one project do not affect future decisions for any other projects positively or negatively.
Q: Why don't you just disallow projects based on your own IP from LEGO Ideas?
LEGO Ideas intentionally allows projects based on licenses we already have rights to, because there's always the opportunity a LEGO fan will suggest something unique and off the beaten path. We think it's better to allow something unique to happen than to shut down a category of potential products because of the possibility of overlap. This is why we write our Guidelines the way we do, so members submitting to the site understand the opportunities and risks of suggesting projects based on existing LEGO Group licenses.
