Yes, I know, another LEGO post but this is great! I’ve not heard of it before but CUUSOO is a website designed specifically for getting LEGO sets promoted with the hope of getting the idea made officially by the company. Unfortunately though as you’ll see on the source site, LEGO have to this date never not produced a set which has reached the required 10 000 votes for reasons stated below.
I guess it’s understandable as they are a toy company for children and having zombie hunting LEGO men wielding spades and cricket bats isn’t the ideal promotion but maybe they could make one and rate it 15 because I really want it! As you’ll see from the image below, Yatkuu (the person responsible for the awesome set) has recreated the cast of Edgar Wright’s movie standing in front of the pub which features throughout the film ‘The Winchester’ joined by some zombies.
The official statement from LEGO read:
LEGO CUUSOO gives the opportunity to submit product ideas, however all LEGO products, regardless of age target, must be content appropriate for our core audience. With this in mind we have decided that – good though the model is – the film Shaun of the Dead contains content that is not appropriate for our core target audience of children ages 6-11.
