wow - it will be released in mid 2013 as official set!
Well it's not like it is going to be a very large or intricate set. That was probably the first of the Cuusoo projects that Lego went after since it was the simplest of them all. They probably have had all of the licensing issues taken care of months ago. It will be interesting to see how the designers change the model around to fit their standards.

Nice that this is the next set. Though it seems to me, that they just picked one of the four review models to make, and dumped the others--which sucks because it seems you need 10,000 votes and then need to be able to beat out the others who got 10,000 votes (Which itself could be troublesome depending on how many models are in one review compared to others). Too bad the Western Town didn't make it, it would work well with the Lone Ranger stuff coming out.
I think they just picked the smallest and easiest one to work with. Not only that, but now Lego can also say that 1% will go to the MJF Parkinson's disease charity since the guys who came up with this idea said that was what they were going to do.
