A Closer Look at Our Top 6 Most Supported Projects

Here at LEGO® CUUSOO, we don’t really know how to slow down. The Fall Review Deadline may have passed (and yes, we know we owe you an update on the Summer review – believe us when we say, we’ll announce the results as soon as we can), but already we’re looking ahead to the winter deadline (December 3rd), and you should too. We have a handful of builds that are very close to that 10,000 mark – what will make the cut?

Space Troopers!*
8,600+ Supporters!

It’s hard to believe this project has been in the “idea stage” for almost a year now! This project sports a number of ideas for new minifigs, and the creators are quick to point out the many possibilities for other themes that could be incorporated, as well as an advanced storyline for fans of all ages. One interesting thing to note on this build is that it has collected nearly as many comments as it has supporters. Truly a build which inspires conversation!

Exo Suit
7,500+ Supporters!

Sticking with the sci-fi theme, the Exo Suit seems to be a must have for any adventurous LEGO space ‘fig. After this build became his most popular model on Flickr, Peter Reid decided to create it as a project so others could have a chance to own it. With enough supporters, no LEGO Minifigure will have to go into the great unknown of space unprepared again…

Andy/Bugdroid the Android by Google
7,000+ Supporters!

Whether you use an iPhone, Android, Blackberry, or even a vintage flip phone, it’s hard not to appreciate Andy. With fully rotating arms and head, this model is more than just a show piece. Having received a number of media mentions, including on Brickset and Geek.com, Andy has managed to climb to the top of the most supported list in less than two months – not an easy task!

Land-Rover Defender 110
5,700+ Supporters!

To fully appreciate this build, you have to see it in action. I remember back when this was featured as in the Most Popular Bookmarks of the Week on ReBrick…how time flies! With around 2,800 parts, 7 motors, and 3 IR receivers, this supercar looks and sounds more impressive than my real-life car.

 

Correction: We made an oops – sorry we missed including The Legend of Zelda Project in the previous version! This blog post wouldn’t be complete without mentioning this totally awesome project. 

- The Legend of Zelda Project –
5,000+ supporters!

It’s clear from the Legend of Zelda project currently in review and this one that CUUSOO fans are crazy about Legend of Zelda! This project has a strong focus on LEGO Minifigures, especially a high quality Link figure as he appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.  It also showcases some high quality possible sets (my personal favorite is “The Temple of Time”).

Macross VF-1 Valkyrie +Fast Pack / Armored Parts
4,300+ Supporters! 

Whether you followed the various Macross TV shows and movies on from the 1980s, or just happen to be a fan of mecha, this is the project for you. Although the model pictured is from the show, “Space Fortress Macross”, the builder points out that the build and re-build aspect of LEGO bricks will give this model endless possibilities for customization. It’s also a project that will excite Japanese animation fans across the globe!

These are just five six of the top supported builds on LEGO CUUSOO, browse the Discover page to find more fantastic creations needing your support. Also keep in mind that just because a project isn’t in the Top Supported Projects list now doesn’t mean it won’t come up from behind and qualify for the Winter Review. Your support and sharing can aid any project’s quest for 10,000 supporters, so please pass them along to your friends and spread the word far and wide!
