This week in the IOTW (IDEA of The Week) section we find the project of Marcel Steeman, an interesting project that certainly caught our attention, for decades cars have dominated the cities, leaving a reduced space to other means of transport and green spaces, it is a fact that LEGO cities try to be a true reflection of society and its habits. Perhaps this is the reason why for so long LEGO City has been dominated by cars, but cities continue to evolve and it has become increasingly evident that the famous Danish company had to adapt to the new urban changes. Among them, to give bikes, already considered the mobility of the new world, the importance they deserve.
Therefore Marcel Steeman has presented a new project in LEGO IDEAS that aims precisely to adapt to these changes in the cities and give a greater importance to bikes through a considerable bike lane, which has nothing to do with the solution that LEGO had presented a few months ago, after many requests LEGO decided to include a thin blue bike lane of only two studs wide, For Marcel Steeman this was not enough and he was willing to remodel that idea using precisely the new system of road plates that LEGO City had presented for the year (2021), using it as a base and adding new elements to what would be the "set" some bike racks, a bike with child seat and, most importantly, big, wide and blue bike lanes. No doubt these bike lanes bring the realism of today's cities, two-way lanes that allow LEGO cities to adapt to new changes.
So far Marcel Steeman idea has been a great success, accumulating more than 5,500 votes and obtaining more than 770 extra days, which will undoubtedly allow him to reach the goal of 10,000 votes for review by LEGO. 000 for review by LEGO, from Brickrr we dare to say that at the rate the votes are coming in we should see this project for review in the coming months, where we could also live an unprecedented situation in terms of accepted LEGO IDEAS projects and is that Marcel Steeman project is directly focused on the LEGO theme known as LEGO City, we could see a LEGO IDEAS project being introduced in an official LEGO theme in this case LEGO City? It's certainly a good question that LEGO probably hasn't even considered yet.
We'll keep an eye on Marcel Steeman interesting project, if you are interested in helping this project reach 10.000 votes to get the LEGO review, here's the link.
