It’s Like Kickstarter… For LEGO!

It’s Like Kickstarter… For LEGO!

Well, not really, but kinda. Since Minecraft got its own set, LEGO has this thing running where people can support new ideas for branded LEGO. If it gets 10,000 votes, LEGO take the idea to review. Any one interested in a Penny Arcade LEGO set, how about EVE Online?

The one with the most votes so far is the Back to the Future set, as you might expect. Although it’s currently at 5000 votes, Apparently the LEGO team is already considering this, as a result of 2015 and the 30th anniversary of the original movie. Also — that’s the time that Back to the Future II is set.

I’m trying to think what game franchises I’d like to see LEGO-fied. Any ideas?


  • There are some great ideas floating around there.

    And whilst i LOVE Penny Arcade, the lego designs that the fan has made up are absolutely Abhorrent. Like SERIOUSLY ugly.

    I’m quite surpised you didn’t mention the Zelda one, though 😛

    • You won’t get it because the halo sets are actually “Mega Blocks” – the vastly inferior lego rip-off that looks like arse

      • Pirates of the Caribbean used to be with Mega Bloks.
        Yeah, that’s right. It’s actually spelled Bloks not Blocks. Google it for yourself. Did that just blow you’re mind? 😛

        • The transformers block sets (i think they’re called KREO) are actually pretty decent. They are not LEGO but U was able to build optimus, so I’m happy.

  • “Since Minecraft got its own set, LEGO has this thing running where people can support new ideas for branded LEGO”

    Are you saying that this came after Minecraft LEGO?

  • Screw you all.
    My suggestion is a big bucket ‘o’ lego.
    No theme, no pieces that can only be used to make one thing, just lots and lots of different types of bricks.

    ….. oh wait, that would help creativity and stop people needing to buy more and more useless junk that they assemble once and put back in the box.
    Silly me.

    • well, this is true, iv hardly ever built anything that was remotely similar to the pictures on the box, but at least with this, i get ideas and new interesting parts to play with!
