No Winners For LEGO Ideas’ First 2015 Review

The results are in for the first 2015 LEGO review. Unfortunately, none of the LEGO Ideas projects have been selected for production. This is due to various reasons like problems with licensing, being too similar to current products or poor build construction.

On a brighter note, the F7A Hornet – Star Citizen project is still being considered and LEGO Ideas #013 Labyrinth Marble Maze will be ready for release in 2016.

There’s a unlockable code on the Finn polybag that’s probably meant for an unannounced LEGO Star Wars game.
