Female Minifigure Set to be produced

The Female Minifigure Set has been selected for the next LEGO Ideas set.

The set is intended for release in August.

All other projects in the review have been rejected.  Zelda for the third time!

The video of the results can be found here. 

What does this mean?

Like each set that gets picked for production, there are little tid-bits and factoids that can be pulled out from this and observed. 

Here are a few observations about this project and what it has accomplished in getting selected for production:
  •  The second set (of eight) to be produced without IP
  • The least expensive set to date ($20.00)
  • The first set to be produced that got a pass in a previous review
  • The first set to be produced that could, pretty seamlessly, fit into the CITY theme 
  • The first set to be produced that used fully rendered models, with no actual Lego model
  • The first set to be produced that has proposed a collection of small models
  • The first set to be produced that proposed a multitude of possible options, then used supporter feedback to narrow the final selection.  
  • The first set to be produced that could be argued to have a social agenda (other than charity)
