News – LEGO Cuusoo Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Set

For those who don’t know, Cuusoo is the website where LEGO fans can gain support for their own custom LEGO sets to be manufactured and actually sold. Many of them are licensed sets that LEGO does have to get permission to sell, such as the newly released LEGO Back to the Future DeLorean set that you can now find in LEGO stores. One that is trying to gain support right now is a LEGO Cuusoo Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set, with minifigures of all four of the Ghostbusters themselves, Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddemore.

Cuusoo sets need 10,000 votes in order to get made, so If you’d like to support the project with just a simple click vote, then just follow the link here to help make it happen! It doesn’t cost a thing to do, it only takes one click if you’d like to see it happen.

News – Back to the Future LEGO Set Coming in 2013

LEGO Back to the Future SetThat’s right, there is a Back to the Future LEGO set coming. It started on the LEGO Cuusoo website. It’s basically a site where you can create your own custom LEGO project, and if you get enough supporters, it can be made into a set and you can receive royalties. The LEGO Back to the Future set is now becoming a reality after reaching the mandatory 10,000 supporters, getting the green light from LEGO, and securing the licensing rights. The set is scheduled to be released in mid 2013 and will come with enough bricks to build the DeLorean time machine into the version from any of the three movies. What’s really cool is the folks who designed this set are donating the royalties they receive directly to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. See, now if you don’t buy this set, you’re hurting people. Way to go, jerk.
