PleyWorld Crowdsources Ideas for LEGO sets: Pleygiarism

by Lambert Varias

Is your awesome idea for a LEGO set rotting on LEGO Ideas? Check out PleyWorld. Launched by the LEGO rental company Pley, PleyWorld is a more liberal though unofficial version of LEGO Ideas. Once your concept or prototype set reaches 5,000 votes on PleyWorld, Pley will make it available for purchase or rental. It’s as simple as that.

Of course Pley still needs to respect intellectual property rights but other than that it seems like the company has no veto powers here. Vox populi, vox PleyWorld.

The PleyWorld community is still small, but I wouldn’t be surprised if many Ideas users flock to it soon. That said I think the lack of a reviewing body has its pitfalls. I wonder what would happen if the 20,000-piece LEGO Helicarrier concept gets greenlit on PleyWorld. I also think Pley needs to introduce tagging or some way of categorizing and organizing submissions. That Pinterest-style layout isn’t going to work for long.
