Portal Lego set goes into review

Get ready to think with Legos.

An official Portal Lego set may be on its way after a fan-made prototype received the 10,000 votes required to be considered for production on the Danish blockmaker's crowdsourced platform Cuusoo.

This means that the set will go into review at the start of the next quarter in September. At this point, a "Lego Jury" comprised of designers, product managers, and other key team members will determine if it's a viable concept. This will be based on criteria such as playability, safety and fit with the Lego brand. This process could take several months.

If it meets Lego's standards and goes into production, it will take several more months while marketing materials, instructions and packaging are manufactured.

Since the project is fan-made by the four-person Team Jigsaw, it will have to be approved by Valve before Lego can sign off on it. We've reached Valve for comment and are awaiting reply.

If successful, this wouldn't be the first official Lego set based on a videogame, as a Minecraft series was also put into production due to popular demand on Cuusoo earlier this year.
