Celebrating LEGO’s 80th Birthday

August 10, 2012

It’s LEGO’s 80th Birthday. In celebration, here’s the official video celebrating 80 years charting their successes (and failures). It’s a moving 17 minute CG film that is beautiful, inspiring, and heartbreaking.

From the early days, through war, fire, loss; through determination, conviction, and faith – shows a family built to build.

The film does, however, make me dislike Mega Bloks, K’NEX, and KREO even more. LEGO created a path to change toys forever through passion and quality. Creating a toy system so uniquely theirs and through that vision they endured such tragedy. It’s so hard to justify any purchase to a company that would steal their very original idea.

It’s a definite must see.

Teeny Tiny Lego Rocket

Rocket LaunchWow. This incredible little rocket created by iridescent nohow somehow manages to look totally perfect and rather massive while only using 10 miniscule bricks. I’m very impressed.

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.

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!

May 7, 2012

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.

Link.

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.

Link.

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!

April 28, 2012

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)!
