Help a Lego Andy / Bugdroid become reality

1 post in this topic

Posted

Lego Cuusoo is a Lego website which allows you to create a Project, share your product concept, and see what other people think. Projects with 10,000 supporters are reviewed quarterly by LEGO for a chance to become an official LEGO product. One of the projects currently on Cuusoo is a Lego version of the Andy / Bugdroid mascot, proposed by 'GLHTurbo'.

The proposal, currently at 6,884 votes at the time of writing, is a fantastic, movable and very faithful reproduction of our beloved 'droid. :)

This build currently uses 205 pieces of (mostly) Lime Green bricks. Using the approximate price per brick of $0.15 puts this kit around $30. There were many compromises in this build to get it to the model stage and I estimate that given the full catalogue of Lego parts in Lime Green, the part count of the final build could be reduced by 25%.

There are several points of articulation built into this model. The head can rotate 360 degrees as well as both arms. The antennae can also be positioned and have about 100 degrees of motion.

***Future additions: Developers Edition with flying rocket/jet pack.***

The one other thing that I would LOVE to see is that if this project reaches 10,000 supporters, is for Lego to use the proper Android green colour, listed as PMS 376C for print and #A4C639 for online hex colour.

I don't know about you... but I would definitely snap up one of these kits and i've voted for it accordingly! :) Let's help the project hit the 10,000 vote milestone and potentially go into production.

Head on over to the Lego Cuusoo website to vote!
