It’s part of the LEGO Ideas program, and the design needs a total of 10,000 supporters before LEGO will decide if the kit gets manufactured and sold in stores – or ends up as another cool, but not economically viable LEGO model.
Although other highly-skilled LEGO modelers have made versions of the Eagle 5 before, this set has just the right touches that LEGO wants in their store-sold kits.
How the LEGO Ideas Program Works
In order for this Spaceballs LEGO kit (or any potential kit for that matter) to make it to store shelves, 10,000 fans must support the design. Once the design reaches this level, LEGO will decide if the company should produce the kit and sell it. You can learn more about the LEGO Ideas program in the video below.

Have you ever had an idea for a new LEGO set? On LEGO Ideas, you can check out proposals for new LEGO sets created by fans just like you.
Find your favorite projects, vote, give feedback, and even submit your own.
If a project gets 10,000 votes, it enters the LEGO review phase.
Then our review board evaluates and selects which project will because the next LEGO Ideas product.
Members whose projects are selected are recognized for inspiring a LEGO Ideas set, and even receive a percentage of the product’s sales.
Once the design process is complete, the next LEGO Ideas product is produced in our factory and shipped to stores.
Finally, the LEGO Ideas product is available to buy. And you made it happen on LEGO Ideas.
