Congratulations to my friend Frostbricks who gained his 10000 supporters on LEGO Ideas earlier today for his submission ‘Food Stand Diners.’ Initially entered on LEGO Ideas in November 2017, it has taken a little over a year to reach this milestone.
I asked Kale about his thoughts on reaching 10000 supporters:
FrostBricks: Thank-you. Just thank-you. The support it has received is overwhelming, and none of it could have happened without the wonderful support of the community.
What inspired you to build this model?
Frost Bricks: The model was inspired by my love of food.It began with making life size food, in LEGO, that was realistic as possible. Something that could fit on any Foodies mantlepiece. But I also wanted them to feel like they belong in any LEGO city,cos I love minifigs and creating small worlds, which is where the Foodstand aspect comes from; so the merging of those two things really.
Do you have any advice for other builders aspiring to make a successful Ideas submission?
FrostBricks: Just build. Build because you love it. Build because you’re passionate about it. And as you do, always ask “how can I build to my best?” Because the secret is just to practice. To keep on trying. And do do your best in all things. That’s it really. And I know it sounds so simple, that many might disregard it, so I’ll add one thing – keep a record of the things you create, so that you can go back every now and again and see just how far you’ve come. Because success is a ladder, but practice are the steps that help you climb it. And I think that applies to anything worth achieving in life.
Thanks for those words of wisdom, Frostbricks, and I hope the review process treats you well!You can check out the original LEGO Ideas submission here. This entry will go into the LEGO Review process with recent 10000 club members in the near future, including submissions based on the international space station and Space-X projects. What do you think of this submission? It’s a bit different to many of the recent projects to gain 10000 supporters. We wish Frostbricks all the best with the review process, which we expect to take until sometime around the middle of next year. Until next time, Play Well!
