Beautiful entry, it is one of the few models that I look at and want to walk around it at minifigure scale.
Congratulations on winning, you deserve it.

As stunning as this is, (which it is utterly amazing, I will not deny) what is the purpose of voting for this on Cuusoo anyway?

Other than community thumb-ups, I don't understand these massive entries over there. If this was a retail set by LEGO, it would cost something like $800...

Anyway, congrats on frontpage and it's a wonderful project you have here.

@TheWarden: in the description, he says: "Each house represents a single set and can be combined with other sets of the series." I think he means this as a new theme, rather than one single huge set.

It's multifunctionomical.

Hi TheWarden, the answer is already provided by Richie, but let me add some words.

We've now been without a western theme for way too long and personally I'd love to see the theme rise again from the ashes. Being able to build a complete Western Town based on a number of smaller sets (each set containing one 'house') would be something I'd be willing to spend my $$$ on and I'm sure I'm not the only one. So I'm kinda using this stunning MOC to help LEGO realize it's time for more Western sets.

How could I have missed this? It is incredibly good!  :thumbup:
If I'm allowed 1 nitpick; I don't really like the Sherrif sign, as it seems a bit comical in reflection with your other signs.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

I signed up and voted only for this incredible model at Cuusoo, because this is something what I'd like to see as a LEGO product. Way better then the Minecraft entry which is a real shame if you look to what Japan votes on and got in the long run.

It is an excellent build. Although it misses one iconic house that features in almost all westerns, for reference....

This is great! I can see this being released as a series of modular, western buildings. A back would have to be added before, though.
Added my vote! But I'm only one Joe.

Wow, this is great, idk about a modular set, I think lego would do something more like the 7641 City Corner as it would be cheaper and available to more audiences rather then just T & AFOLs, but definately a Western theme is needed.  I'm off to vote.

What a superb model, and even better is the innovative brain behind it. All I can say is that this is just fantastic. I will have to register at Cussoo and vote for it.

Well done the genius who has designed this.

I also voted for this a few months ago on CUUSOO. Its lovely and I would love to collect each one as they came out. There are limitless possibilities with this theme.

Oh and I just don't get the Minecraft thing. I didn't even know what it was until I saw it on CUUSOO. I don't think it really deserves the LEGO review, as the most of the voters are not AFOL or FOL I believe. The voters for that are video gamers aren't they?

This set is just beautiful. Bravo!

I'd love a set of "Tombstone" inspired minifigs to go along with it.
