Huge congratulations to WesTalbott and all of the supporters of this LEGO® CUUSOO project. This is now the third project based on the Legend of Zelda to reach 10,000 supporters, so it's very clear to us that LEGO and Zelda fans worldwide really want to see this happen.
Even though we haven't been able to move forward with the past two Legend of Zelda proejcts, our team is happy to consider this project in the Winter 2013 LEGO Review period on its own merits.
What happens now?
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.
