The Space Marines project over at LEGO CUUSOO has finally reached 10,000 supporting votes. The project reached a grand total of 10,001 supporting votes on the 29th November. The project has now entered the December 2012 review stage.

The LEGO CUUSOO Team left the following message:
Congratulations on 10,000 Supporters, NickRoyer, GreenLead, and CrashSanders!


Space Marines is a fun concept, well thought out, and with broad-based support. You've done a great job of presenting it concisely with a lot of possibilities. Further it is a great example of a high quality concept refined over time into something that looks like it has real potential as a LEGO product.

Congratulations on achieving 10,000 supporters. We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.

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. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.

The LEGO Review Begins in December
This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in December, which will also include all other projects that reach 10,000 between now and December 3. For more information about the quarterly review process, see this blog post.

The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the Space Marines concept.

When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.

We will post follow-up information and our decision here.
