I have a roundup of Lego news and there was just so much Cuusoo in it that it needs it’s own post. There is some stuff that is on the chopping block that I’m authentically jazzed about and even hopeful since BTF got the green light. First off is what is in production, the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover
I had a chance of seeing this in person at our last Tillicum Kids Show, someone brought it in from instructions posted here:
I’m assuming that it’s going to be what ships, or pretty close to that. Whatever the case, the picture with the linked instructions make for a really tidy model.
Here’s what is up for review:
Portal is still on the table…. I know everyone has their own fav they are rooting for, this is the horse I’m hoping for. I *know* I just went on about sets but I’d buy this one out of principle, just to let Lego know they are on the right track.
Thinking With Portals
There seems to be all manners of Portal projects included, like a big Portal umbrella, so not sure what one they might go with. Just dooo eeeet.
Go to the project page to see many more pics.
Added in the fall was:
Female Minifigure Set
ATLAS Mini Model – Education Outreach Project
FTL – Faster Than Light
Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary
Poptropica: Dr. Hare’s Lair
Ghostbusters ( moar! )
The Road to OZ
Plus all these other nice sets up for review. The UCS Sandcrawler did not make the cut and not totally surprised. It would be kind of odd if Cuusoo put out a licensed set that was already in an existing line on the shelf. I doubt they would be able to put it out even if StarWars had ended 5 years ago. Maybe if it was a dormant property, like Indiana Jones, but not something that they are actively producing a tonne of content for.
I’m also jacked for Ghostbusters natch and curious how the Oz one will do. I think it’s public domain so that one actually should be fairly easy to swing, unless the MOUSE has it’s teeny happy paws in it.
What are you excited about?
