This morning, it was announced that LEGO® Ideas will no longer be accepting submissions based on third party licenses that are active in the LEGO® Group’s portfolio. These include Star Wars, Marvel and DC Super Heroes, Disney Princesses, BMW
, Bugatti and many more, including licenses from previous Ideas sets and LEGO® Dimensions. The full list of current licences can be found here. If the licences retired, it becomes open for use, unless it was active through LEGO Ideas.
Existing submissions, based on these licences will be retained at this point. There have been a number of other, less significant changes to the Guidelines, as well as the Terms and Conditions. Further information can be found in the latest Ideas blog post.
This will be disappointing for those who night be developing submissions based on these licences, however it should help return Ideas to its original goal: to foster fan driven LEGO sets.
What do you think? is this a positive change for Ideas? Or do you think it unnecessarily restricts options for submission? Leave your comments blow.
