    Sherlock

    created by flailx on 2013.08.27

    Main Section
    CREATORS NOTE: As we approach 10,000, there are a few thanks that must be given.
    First, to The LEGO Group and the Cuusoo team for the opportunity for LEGO fans to have their creations realized as actual sets. Also, to Sherlockology for their dedicated support for this project - it wouldn't have happened without you guys! And to Glenbricker's Review for all the help and great renders. Finally, to all the amazing fans of Sherlock for the incredible support. Your passionate display of support has, I'm sure, made an impression with LEGO. Thanks again to all who voted for this project!

    This creation is based on the wonderful BBC drama "Sherlock", a contemporary update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's world famous detective Sherlock Holmes.

    The set recreates the consultation room from 221 B Baker St., the flat of Mr. Sherlock Holmes. As shown, the set contains 370 pieces. I think the set should come with a sticker sheet for the mirror and rug. The set was designed with the adult collector and/or fan of the show in mind and so accuracy in matching the set was a priority. There are a number of building techniques employed throughout the set and I believe it would be an enjoyable build.

    This set will feature three mini figures: the brilliant Sherlock Holmes, his faithful companion John Watson and the wonderful Mrs. Hudson, Sherlock's landlady.

    Please consider supporting my other project:
    The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

    UPDATE 9/6/13: Eye colors have been corrected and Sherlock's shirt is now purple.
    UPDATE 9/10/13: New render of the set! Many thanks to Glenbricker's Review for the render!

    Mr. Holmes is ready to receive clients in his consultation room. The room is crammed with books and features two comfortable chairs, a cozy fireplace and Holmes' desk with reading lamp. There is also a side table with teapot, and a hat rack topped with the iconic Deer Stalker. Also included would be Sherlock's laptop which is not shown as it is difficult to render.

    This is an alternate/expanded version of the set, featuring Sherlock's couch and iconic wallpaper. The wall paper would be 5 stickers measuring 3x6 (bricks). I have also created a display stand for the set. The set at this size would be about 630 pieces, 450 without the display stand.

    One other feature with this set would be a card, printed with a view of baker street, visible through the windows.

    This is my concept for what the characters from the show would look like as minifigs. From L to R we have the deliciously evil Jim Moriarty, Scotland Yard's best Inspector, Lestrade, Sherlock's landlady, Mrs. Hudson, lab tech and Sherlock fangirl, Molly Hooper, and Sherlock's brother, aka the British Government, Mycroft.

    These are presented as a possibility if this project is made into a set. Would/should all of them be included in a set? If LEGO were to produce my original concept, basically half of Sherlock's consulting room, I would imaging it would come with Sherlock and John, and maybe one or two other figs.

    The larger (read: much more expensive) set could easily contain ALL of the figs.

    Congrats on 10,000 Supporters, Flailx!

    10,000 people have become Sher-locked! In almost as short a time as it takes the consulting detective to solve a crime, this project has reached its goal of 10,000 supporters. The enthusiasm fans have shown is quite inspiring!

    This project has everything you need to act out your favorite scenes in from 221B Baker Street, including a consulting criminal and a gaggle of characters for Sherlock to coyly insult.

    Well I could go on and on about this project but…everything I have to say has probably already crossed your mind. Now if you excuse me, I need to go to my mind palace. 

    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 January
    This project qualifies for the quarterly review beginning in January. 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 “Sherlock” 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.

    Congratulations on 5,000 Supporters!

    Dear flailx,

    This project has been gaining supporters so quickly we can't keep up with it! It’s clear that fans of the BBC show have really come together on this, and there’s no mystery as to why. You've captured the characters and the consulting room wonderfully, right down to the famous deerstalker (although how do you stalk a deer with a hat? That's a case not even Holmes can solve).  

    Best of luck as you continue on your journey to achieving 10,000 supporters, although something tells me you wouldn't need luck. 

    Sorry, got to dash. I think I left my riding crop at the mortuary.

    Note: If your idea is selected, the LEGO Group will make the final decision on how your proposed product should be produced, the final design, applicable licenses, production run size, sales channels, etc. Please understand that our comments here do not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.
