Portal Project on Lego Cuusoo Reaches 10,000 Supporters!

July 18, 2012

The more than incredible “Thinking with Portals!” project on Lego Cuusoo Passed 10,000 supporters and has entered the review stage. Team Jigsaw has done an incredible job recreating iconic Portal/Portal 2 scenes in Lego. I really, really hope Lego works out a deal with Valve…

…and I really don’t want this cake to be a lie.

Lego 9526 Palpatine’s Arrest: Recreate a Mass Murder!

May 29, 2012

Ok Lego, so I have a question: How is this set appropriate for children? You have now turned down three projects on Lego Cuusoo deeming the content “inappropriate for their target audience”. To illustrate this, they’ve made a few blog posts now explaining what criteria they consider in the Lego review. They’ve actually stated that they won’t except “Death, killing, blood, terrorism, or torture”. Now I understand how Shaun of the Dead, Firefly, and Ghost in the Shell aren’t right for Lego. What I don’t understand is how the heck this is?

This set includes everything you need to recreate one of the most gruesome, terrifying scenes from Revenge of the Sith (below the child slaughter, but above Anakin being mutilated). You have a little catapult to throw Palpatine at the four Jedi he kills and a window (and force lightning) to push out of and kill Mace Windu with.

So Lego, how can you refuse sets based off of other violent content and deem this bit of man slaughter appropriate for a Lego set?

Lego Cuusoo Modular Western Town Reaches 10,000 Supporters!

May 14, 2012

Another Cuusoo project reaches the 10,000 goal! And this one is quite special, as it’s the first one to reach the goal that is not something Lego has to acquire a license to produce! View the project here.

10 Outstanding Lego Cuusoo Projects that Need Your Support!

Modular Western Town

Now that the Modular Western Town has passed 9000, it won’t be long now until it reaches the Lego review. Go view the brilliance and give it the extra little push.

Also by the creator is the awesome UCS Sandcrawler which is quickly climbing in supporters.

My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic

Go on. You want some Lego My Little Ponies in your collection don’t you? Anyways, these would make my sister really happy.

Link.

Space Marines!

Space Marines is actually an entirely new theme being suggested. Across between Lego’s space line and Halo, these sets and characters look pretty brilliant. And the concept story is fantastic too.

Exo Suit

I believe all minifigs should be entitled life, liberty, the pursuit if happiness, and this exo suit. A minifig has to defend itself!

Link.

Piano (Music Architecture Series)

This idea is to create a new series of architecture sets based of composers and pianos. The detail that has gone into everything is exquisite.

Link.

Ghostbusters

One of the best ideas I’ve seen on Lego Cuusoo. The Ghostbusters would translate incredibly well to Lego. The CG shots of possible sets give me goosebumps.

Labyrinth Marble Maze

Who doesn’t love a Labyrinth maze? And a fully-functioning one made entirely of Lego? Hell yes!

Link.

The Muppets!

While mostly just concept sketches, the possibility of Lego Muppets was too great not to include in this list.

Micro Scale Star Wars Scenes

I have featured the work of 2 Much Caffeine on my blog multiple times for it’s pure excellence. Now he has put out a couple of awesome ideas on Cuusoo including these micro scale Star Wars scenes (the first which I blogged here). Go through the Cuusoo project and look at all the amazing models.

Super Mario

Last, but most certainly not least, I’ve been searching for a quality Super Mario Project on Lego Cuusoo since day one, and last night, I finally found one. This was actually just posted yesterday and already has well over 200 supporters. Look through all the images and read the creator’s awesome blog. I might die from over exposure to joy if it became a reality. The suggested set(s) are just far too mind blowing.

Also, I know we have just pushed a different Legend of Zelda Project to 10,000 supporters, but take a look at this one.

Lego Cuusoo Back to the Future Project Reaches 10,000 Supporters!

As the title says, the Lego Cuusoo Back to the Future project has reached the necessary number of supporters (10,000!) to be reviewed by Lego! Congratulations! Cuusoo has changed their policy and will be reviewing this set, the EVE Online Ship (which also reached the goal), and any other project that gets 10,000 supporters in June. I can’t imagine Lego turning this one down (like they recently did with the Shaun of the Dead project)!

Lego Cuusoo Back to the Future Project Reaches 9000 Supporters!

Go support the project and push them to the 10,000 supporters they need for Lego to review (and most likely produce) an official Lego Back to the Future set!

Lego Legend of Zelda Reaches 5000 Supporters on Lego Cuusoo!

April 10, 2012

Lego Cuusoo blows my mind. It’s a totally incredible concept. Fans put their models on the website and if their idea gets 10,000 supporters, Lego reviews the concept and makes it a set (if the idea is doable). It’s basically Kickstarter without having to put any money down. So far, Lego Minecraft Micro World and two Japan models have stemmed from Cuusoo with Lego Shaun of the Dead in review.

Looking through the site you will find tons and tons of amazing models and concepts. Some of the most supported projects include Lego Back to the Future and Lego Modular Western Town. But of all the projects (with a substantial number of supporters) Lego Legend of Zelda I found by far the coolest. Today, the Lego Legend of Zelda project has acquired 5000 supporters (half of what they need for Lego to pitch this product to Nintendo). With 5000 supporters, Lego designers will now start building concepts for possible Zelda sets.

As you can guess, I find this all extremely exciting and I wish this project the best of luck as it travels to the 10,000 supporter goal! And, if you are reading this and haven’t yet, go create a Cuusoo account and support some projects!
