CUUSOO Modular Western Town

Postby RichardAM » Thu Feb 09, 2012 6:51 pm

I'm sure (and hope) many of you have seen this already, but for those that haven't I thought i'd post this. With all the other online communities officially supporting the project and the shared disgruntlement at the upcoming Minecraft project I was surprised no-one's mentioned this yet- a product/theme i'd actually love to see enter development. I hope everyone here can help out with what seems an awesome idea. :)

Via Eurobricks-
Some time ago marshal_banana won our Spaghetti Western competition with a stunning (modular) Western Town.

He's now doing pretty well on CUUSOO, so let's help him make the 10.000 votes for this MOC to be considered by LEGO for production. Who wouldn't a new Western Theme that comes with a Western Town where each house can be bought as an individual set?

Wanna help out and remind LEGO how much we want Western to return?Go here on CUUSOO to cast your vote

I've already supported this project :)
I saw it on eurobricks too, and think it is a great idea to have a bunch of forums put good ideas on their front page. The Brothers Brick blogged it as well, last I checked it was over 3000 votes

A nice collection of MOCs and a great idea for a new/resurrected theme.

Looks like this project finally made it. I really hope TLC decides to make this, there aren't any licsensing issues or anything.

Excellent! If this makes the grade, I will definitely buy at least one building for it.

I'm delighted- it's great to see something of merit finally reach the 10k.

That all the licensed stuff reached the limit overnight while the entire Lego community couldnt pull together for one project worried me deeply. But I am excited for this- it's the first product that, I feel, has made Cuusoo actually worthwhile. :)

RichardAM, I feel much the same way. It's disheartening to see the top slots almost exclusive populated by crossovers, since no matter how good they are they will have to clear the licensing hurdle in order to make it onto the shelves. It feels like a waste of all that support, and since there are only so many "front page" slots, it prevents more original ideas from achieving the visibility they would need to get a lot of support.

I would much rather have original themes in any case--there will never be a shortage of customizers producing minifigs and MOCs based on non-LEGO IPs.
