Birds reaches 10,000 Supporters

Posted by ,

The LEGO Bird Project has been archived for achieving 10,000 supporters and is the first project to land in the May 2014 Review.

If LEGO is able to keep to their new schedule, we should learn its final fate in about seven to eight months.

This project is also the first Cuusoo project based on natural phenomena to reach 10,000 support.

I think its a winner, It would help promote the new Cuusoo rules.

Brilliant news, my favourite Cuusoo project by far. Hopefully if approved it will be for multiple birds, but I'd snap up the Robin on its own straight away.

Archived and achieved are two completely different things on cuusoo :)

I would so totally hope for this to win, this is such an amazing bird. I have tried to build one my self, but it still doesnt compete with this one!

Eh, not my bag. But happy to see more projects achieve 10,000 that aren't based on an existing franchise. Just wish it was something I was interested in.

@BJ21 The creator changed his submission slightly when the new rules come in. It is now for three birds. From memory, the robin, a hummingbird and a blue jay.

It feels like it's been about a year since I voted for it. Maybe it is...

Selfishly kind of hoping it's a quieter review process, maybe just this and Apple Store (and Land Rover do-over). It'd be nice to see something for the general public that's not licensed or about technology. It was actually the first Cuusoo I supported, so I certainly hope it does well!

Congrats on reaching 10k. It's a neat little project that looks to have a lot of interesting builds and would look good sitting in the living room.

I'd suspect it would be 3 birds for say $20 or $25 depending of their size.

I'm not much of a bird fan myself, but I do love these models! Hopefully LEGO will produce all three.

I love these models and really hope that they pass review. It will be the first Cuusoo set I would get. The birds are crafted masterfully and would look awesome on display.

I was looking at the firs couple pages of Cuusoo projects to see which others might hit 10,000 soon, and it struck me how many projects have been deleted. Star Wars Micro-Scenes? Gone. Muppets? Gone. That Roman-themed project? Gone. Ditto for the Greek mythology one. TLG has gotten really brutal with enforcing its new guidelines. For pete's sake, at least give people a chance to modify their projects before deleting them.

Glad to see this one hit the goal....

Glad to see this make it. It would go well with that Parrot Polybag from a few years back. Also, you spelt 'achieved' wrong :P

I have been waiting for ages for this to get 10,000 supporters :D, I will definitely plan on buying them if they still look the sorta the same,
A good price and if it's actually released :P :D

I think it would sell very well to non-AFOLs. It has been in national newspapers in the UK, and quite a lot of people like birds. Just look at membership of RSPB and the number of responses they get to garden birds surveys.

The downside for me is that I'd probably want British birds as a group of three, then maybe birds from other continents after that. The robin doesn't sit naturally next to a hummingbird.

I'd love to see how they approach re-doing the feet too. These are going to have to stand up and be stable, not balanced carefully as they keep falling down.

Beautiful designs, but I personally don't see a decent market at all for this. Commercially I think it would really struggle.

Neat birds.

@ Modok,

Those projects had several weeks to comply with the new rules and the projects you reference were deleted because the project creators chose not to update.

The only projects there were deleted without warning were the following:

Projects based singularly on creating new elements
Projects based on software
Projects that were deemed to be requests for figures
Projects that were not requests for tangible Lego sets

I'd definitely buy it at 3 birds for $39.99 - they are probably more appealing to "not kids" - but then again, the BTTF car was a blast from the 80's. Many on here are too young to even remember it coming out - or weren't around when it came out. I think this could really sell well and be a niche model that gets it's 10,000 run done and then it's gone, a la Hayabusa. That one didn't have too much "wordly" interest, and isn't very swooshable/fun to play with, but it's a great display piece nevertheless.

I bet it passes... don't see any reason why it wouldn't. Having illegal techniques doesn't seem to bother CUUSOO.

The Apollo 11 Lunar Mission project was deleted? I can't find it anymore. That's a real shame.

Lord Business has taken over CUUSOO, that's the only explanation. It's all part of a marketing scheme for the movie to give a real-life example of what will happen if humorless rulesmongers took over running CUUSOO. After the movie's been out a few weeks, they will reveal that it was all a hoax and stop nannying all the projects to death.
...
That is the only possible explanation, right?
Right?
Sigh...

I would never buy it, but congrats on 10,000 to the creators!
