    :laugh: :laugh: "On April 30th, the LEGO® CUUSOO beta will end to be replaced with LEGO® Ideas. For details click here: http://lego.cuusoo.com/transition." Here are the most important changes: "What' s new in the LEGO Ideas terms version 1.0 compared to the expiring LEGO CUUSOO terms: 1. Beginning April 30th, 2014, all Projects will have one year to reach 10,000 supporters. Existing projects will receive a full year starting April 30th, 2014 and ending May 1st, 2015 to qualify, and will keep their existing supporters. Projects published after April 30th, 2014 will each receive one year from their publication date to reach 10k. If a project doesn't reach 10,000 supporters within the year, it will expire and will no longer accept supporters. After that, you're welcome to re-submit and try again with the same project, but it will re-start at zero supporters and must reach 10,000 unique supporters within one year's time to be considered in the LEGO Review. 2. If you are between 13-18 years old you may now create and submit projects, but if your project reaches 10,000 supporters, we will require written permission from a parent or legal guardian before your project is considered in the LEGO Review." (.....it continues, see link.....)
  2. OK, at this point, a small series of sets covering the Ancient World is essentially inevitable... All the molds have already been made, and it is just a matter of time now... So here is an ambitious new attempt to make a series of sets through Cuusoo. I designed a series of 8 of them, ranging all the way from $30 to $300, including different sets for Greece, Rome, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, Stonehenge, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and the Nexus of Bifrost. Please have a look, I'd love to hear everyone's feedback, and then you can come to vote on all of them for free at LEGO Cuusoo! And I will incorporate everyone's suggestions as soon as I can! Thanks Again! =D therealindy (Archaeology, Ancient, History, Greece, Greek, Rome, Roman, Alexandria, Egypt, Celtic, Stonehenge, Garden, Babylon, Viking, Bifrost, Wonders of the World)

    LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 16 Rumors and Discussion

    Well, This is my personal dream wish list for the CMFs... Obviously they would not do them all at once, but maybe one or two per series, all within a decade...? 1) Inca King (for a lot of these, the iconic crown/helmet is the only new part you really need to make it work!) 2) Aztec Jaguar Warrior (they were hinting at this in the official bio for the Aztec Eagle Warrior from Series 7) 3) Babylonian King 4) Babylonian Queen 5) Babylonian Warrior 6) Chinese Terra-Cotta Warrior (either clay-colored, or with realistic painted-on colors, like the originals were) 7) Chinese Emperor 8) Chinese Empress 9) Tibetan Shaolin Fighting Monk (no new pieces needed. I'm surprised they haven't done it yet.) 10) A different Satyr/Faun (the same hair is OK, but with pan-pipes, purple cape, and grapes this time) 11) A different Gorgon (even just a different color is OK, maybe a cool new authentic shield print) 12) Harpy (use the existing Chima Vulture wing-armor, and the new S16 Devil tail-piece) 13) Fury (use the existing Banshee/Spectre ghost-tail, with the S14 Gargoyle wings) 14) Hades (a Classic version, or the Disney villain version) 15) Greek Philosopher (plus more civilians, including females too) 16) Roman Senator (plus more civilians, including females too) That's my top 16... Any I forgot...?

    Hey, thanks for the honorable mention! That's cool. Sorry I didn't have time to rework them and do new graphics. I might have repackaged it as one single $50 set, and removed a few obsolete parts, etc, etc, etc... Plus, the other main difference for anyone who is resubmitting now is that most of the previous competitors have been deleted, so it is a new field! P.S. - They also posted pics of "Wall-E" today! =D

    Excellent point! Lego may simply already be planning to do a Modular Museum, since it's an obvious item for them to have on their "list of buildings to do". At any rate, the Marble Maze is the biggest Cuusoo/Ideas set so far, except perhaps for the buildable Wall-E. So how big are they? How much will they be?

    Well, if the mold has been created, and if the image of it is not still under secrecy, then you could try doing an ideas project with it...!

    Ah, well they definitely have the tendency to delay results if there is even just one copyright licensing deal in the group that is taking a while. How many copyrights are in the works this time? I mean among the ones that are on the verge of being announced as passed/not-passed now?

    Marvel Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussion

    Yes, maybe BrickForge, or maybe it was BrickArms. They do almost every modern military helmet.

    LEGO Sci-Fi 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    I think that The Lego Movie is already green-lit for a full trilogy, right? And you can bet that one of the main locations in the later movies will be Classic Space world.

    Elves 2015

    What sets are those in? I have not seen them.
  11. The Real Indiana Jones

    Ninjago 2015

    Yeah, I loved the whole aesthetic of that first wave or two, with the first four elemental dragons and the Fire Temple. I got them all at that point. I am glad they are revisiting that a bit.

    Lego Ultra Agents 2015

    I want one of those boats... and not just the set, I mean I want a REAL boat like that!!

    Legends of Chima 2015

    Wow, you have some amazing eyesight!!

    LEGO LotR - general discussion

    Do you mean Sauron? I thought that he did appear in dark spiky armor in a physical form, no? Yeah, isn't it crazy that they never did the main villain from the series in his full form? I made a purist custom fig fairly easily, though.

    Nexo Knights 2016

    So if a new wave of sets is coming in January 2016, then what month would the pictures be likely to appear? July or Mid-Summer probably?
  16. The Real Indiana Jones

    LEGO Star Wars 2015 Pictures and Rumors

    Yeah, but the way the last one was built was extremely unstable. The entire front 2/3 section attached by just one hinge. From a functional standpoint, and swooshability, this is probably a better design.

    LEGO Ideas Doctor Who

    Are the fans still suggesting the possibility of doing one or two series of Collectible Minifigures dedicated to Doctor Who? Or are they planning to sprinkle the doctors out across a whole series of different sets? And is there still a rumor of a full theme?

    Simpsons 2015 Rumors and Discussion

    Did they do Reverend Lovejoy? I was under the impression that they do not make figures of priests from any modern-day religions, so maybe they skipped over him.

    DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    Yes, they might be afraid to do officially labeled sets, just because the name of The S****** Squad is very taboo, but I am sure they will do all of the characters and feature them in various sets.

    Marvel Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussion

    I definitely think you can get those from third-party creators. Don't remember exactly where.

    [LDD MOC] Liberty/La Liberté - 1st rate ship of the line

    Amazing! How big (or heavy) would it be in real life?!

    Jurassic World 2015 Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah, they should at least redo the Triceratops (in dark grey, I think) since the mold exists!
  23. The Real Indiana Jones

    Jurassic World 2015 Rumors & Discussion

    Right, a Stegosaurus would be the best bet, since it can reuse some molds. You could totally reuse the Triceratops legs, plus an all-one-piece Stegosaurus body/head/tail.

    Jurassic World 2015 Rumors & Discussion

    Yep, wow, I just dropped $360+ on these sets, and if they come out with a Stegosaurus or a Sauropod like a Brachiosaurus, or more herbivores to fill out the environment, then I will just have to get more! It's a must-have, because eventually I will hand them down to my future-kids... Lego is the toy with longevity! =)

    The 3 Musketeers

    Looks beautiful! Always nice to see a new historical era. Also another great chance to see if Lego Ideas will be willing to do a set in that $100-$120 price range. I think that they would have gladly made the Japanese Old-Style Architecture set with the ninjas for about $120, but it was just too similar to the Ninjago temples. But this is something new, a whole new era! Great work!
