Finally! I am relieved and delighted to announce that the <a href='http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/35223' target='offsite'>FTL: Faster Than Light</a> CUUSOO project has reached 10,000 supporters at last. This qualifies the project for the review period beginning in September, but after that it might be a while until production. We can only hope our patience will be rewarded with some great little spaceship sets.View the full article

I saw 'Faster Than Light' and assumed this had something to do with CERN's neutrino experiments... like a microscale particle accelerator or something. Needless to say I'm quite disappointed. But I guess microscale spaceships are cool too.

Well, it looks like there'll be LEGO version of the BZPRPGer.

 

Hopefully I can recreate Captain Snelly.

It looks like a nice micro-space ship, but it isn't the best micro-space ship out there. I bet even LEGO's designers could do better, and any number of people on flickr. I just don't see this being a practical set considering all the alternatives (and size).

Well, the build isn't necessarily going to stay the same. It has to be redesigned, like any sketch or concept model. With LEGO Cuusoo you're primarily voting on a concept — the point of the illustrations is to give examples of how that concept might be expressed as a set.So yeah, LEGO's designers could do better. And if this actually passes the review, then they'll probably do just that, because that's their job. I think more than build, the obstacles this will face will be more like the obstacles the EVE Online project faced: is this a good business case? FTL was a very well-received game but it's hardly a household name like Back to the Future or Minecraft.
