LEGO Ideas is LEGO ‘s initiative that evaluates builders’ proposals for new sets, and the results of the last round will please fans of Jaws very much .
Steven Spielberg ‘s film will in fact have its first set, including the shark, the killer whale and the three characters who venture out to hunt the predator: Martin Brody ( Roy Scheider ), Quint ( Robert Shaw ) and Matt Hooper ( Richard Dreyfuss ). It was created by Johnny Campbell .
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the Lego aisle, Jaws FINALLY makes it through @LEGOIdeas review to become a full production set. 🤩😍🦈#YoureGonnaNeedABiggerWallethttps://t.co/ePOD740iOg pic.twitter.com/7qCh8OgscK

By clicking here you will find the video of the presentation, which also explains the criteria for choosing the projects (stability of the set, accessibility of licenses, product demand, etc.). The other proposal selected for future production is instead a cat, created by Damian Andres inspired by his own cat, a cross between a Siamese and a Burmese. He also has the bowl of milk.
Incredible stuff. A LEGO Jaws AND a Cat set have been selected as your next LEGO Ideas set!

Both sets that you can see in the images are not definitive: the versions that will arrive on the shelves could therefore undergo changes.
If you take a look at all the proposals evaluated by LEGO Ideas in this last session, you will also notice a very familiar set: Fantozzi who catches the bus on the fly, as in the famous scene from the first film! There are the facade of the apartment building (with the interior visible behind), the bus, the elevated road, the neighbors, and obviously the accountant Ugo Fantozzi ( Paolo Villaggio ) with his wife Pina ( Liù Bosisio ). The author is obviously an Italian fan and architect, Nastronauta . More details at this link .

The project has not been selected (too little “global”, probably), but this does not diminish the quality of the proposal.
