LEGO has recently launched a very interesting new initiative. Called LEGO FORMA, you can find out more on their Indiegogo campaign, which is a first for the company. You can essentially preorder an upcoming set that is designed for adults, featuring an interesting mechanism that results in a 'conversation piece.' The Koi model is currently only available in the US and UK for now, but presumably if the campaign is successful it will receive a more widespread release. You can also order alternate 'skins' to change the appearance of the model. I think this is an interesting concept - how about you? Let us know what you think and if you plan on ordering a copy for yourself!

Ehhh... color me uninterested. This feels like Lego for adults that think they're too "grown-up" for Lego.

I love this idea.  Its an interesting use of the platform (and an opportunity to see some sets that wouldn't necessarily be released otherwise).  I also quite like fish, so I will definately be getting one of these to put on my desk at work.

Still holding out hope for sets of more mature franchises. Give me some Half-Life themed sets.

It looks cool, but not $45 cool. It's another crowd-funded thing like Bricklink's doing. It'll be interesting to see how these concepts play out.

These look great!

What does it say about me that the first thing my mind went to when I saw these were awesome Rahi mocs?

I'll be hoping to get me one of these.

These look really nice! Although they're a bit pricey, I do have a lot of spare Technic parts on hand and might try to build one myself. :)
