Gravity Falls - The Mystery Shack claims 10,000 Supporters

LEGO Ideas Gravity Falls

Gravity Falls – The Mystery Shack has achieved 10,000 supporters at LEGO Ideas, meaning its in the running for being turned into an official set.

The design of the set was a joint effort between Minibrick Productions and TopLego8. Minibrick Productions is a veteran of the LEGO Ideas scene, with several of their previous creations making it to the review stage. The Polar Express and Avatar: The Last Airbender both unfortunately followed to get final approval from LEGO, while the Polaroid Onestep SX-70 is currently under review having made the first review round of this year. TopLego8 is also already a member of the 10K club, thanks to an earlier version of the Mystery Shack, on which the two previously teamed-up, having gained enough support in 2020.

The pairing has not been disheartened, and their persistence has paid off, having succeed for a second time round. This revised version of the Mystery Shack does not represent a drastic change from the first iteration, but there are some obvious adjustments. The colour palette is slightly warmer and more appealing, and the design has a cosier feel. The house has been downsized and the internal layout has been simplified and made more open plan. Six rooms have now become four. This means the piece count has been reduced from 2,510 to 1,670.

It’s unusual for the same concept to be submitted for a second time and it hints at LEGO’s approval process. It suggests that LEGO had no issues with the subject matter, and instead may have had doubts over the size and pricing. For those that are unaware, Gravity Falls was an American animated TV comedy series created for the Disney Channel. This project suggests that LEGO’s current partnership with Disney (under the Star Wars and Disney themes) may make it easier to get the license for other Disney franchises. This is certainly something for other project designers to take note of...

This will certainly be an interested project to keep an eye on and we’ll keep you updated on the results of the second 2022 review, which is expected around the end of the year.

The other 28 projects that have made it so far are:
