(for the record, when our city is done construction I plan on trying my hand at recreating some of those mini mocs... they're awesome sauce)
 

Is a LEGO city layout ever finished?

Personally, I wouldn't mind a Voltron set if there weren't several ideas in that review that I much prefer.

So does this mean that boat repair shop will get selected as it feels like a set to go with the fishing store.

The fishing store is probably the reason the boat repair shop will not get an approval. They're too similar.

Indeed. Lego would never do that.

I think Voltron is a slam dunk as long as they can get the licensce. It hits too many demos. Older guys that saw the original and younger kids that are watching the new cartoon.

And playability. Voltron has that.

The dive shop may not get selected because of is similarity to the boat shop. We saw that happen with Research Institute and its successor that was submitted.

I think he meant does anyone have a link to the Ideas project that was submitted, got to 10,000 votes and was never approved.

I don't, sorry but it was basically three more vignette like scenes.

Research Institute came first... then it was Science Adventures. Lots of people thought it was sure thing that would cause RI's value to explode again but LEGO poo-poo'ed that.

Science Adventures linky... https://ideas.lego.com/projects/83039

Similarly after Birds became an official set the designer sent in another project with 3 additional birds in the same style. That project didn't even reach ten thousand votes. But even if it would have reached the required votes, I severely doubt Lego would have turned that into another official Ideas set. 

I don't think TLG allows (unwritten rule?) multiple connected sets from the same fan-designer become official Ideas sets. So once a submission by a designer actually becomes an official set, the other submissions by the same designer that are similar in style to the approved submission can be scratched from possible approval, even if they reach those coveted ten thousand votes. So with "Old Fishing Store" by RobenAnne approved to become an official set, I really doubt his next submission Boat Repair Shop will pass the next review round.

Even though I agree that because of fish store, dive/boat shop won't make it, I consider ecto and delorean to be from one theme, "movie cars".
