Want Mega Man Legos? Support This Cuusoo Proposal


Have you ever heard of Lego's Cuusoo program? If not, then know this: it's an initiative that asks creative builders to submit blueprints for their very own Lego set. Blueprints that garner 10,000 supporters will be reviewed by the company for the opportunity to be made into an actual LEGO product.

As one can imagine, there's plenty of video game inspired sets up for support. And tucked away amongst hopeful Sonic, Zelda and Pokémon sets, there's Alatariel's Mega Man proposal. Taking a page from Mega Man 2, the project would include five sets: Metal Man, Wood Man, Bubble Man's stages, followed by Wily's Castle and the Wily Teleportation Room. There's even a range of accessories like E-Tanks, power-ups, and various Robot Master weapons. Hey, you can even build an Atomic Chicken!

Those interested can show their support for the project by clicking the conveniently named 'support' button right at the project's Cuusoo page. Head over to Alatariel's Flickr for more photos of each set!

  1. I haven't touched LEGOs in forever, but if any of those MM sets get made, I would buy the hell out of them.

    (Unfortunately, it seems you need an account to pledge support...GYARGH. Just let me vote for it, dangit!)

  2. The characters would have to look like their video game counterparts for me to pledge support. These are actually quite hideous, I hate to say.

  3. I'd suggest everyone make an account and pledge support, and to spread it around the community. This would stand a much greater chance of grabbing CoJ's attention than any petition would.

  5. I'd support these like crazy.

    But the ultra-popular Legend of Zelda LEGO project was declined because LEGO is too cheap to make the necessary molds necessary for the unique set pieces.

    In other words, don't ask for anything that can't be made out of pre-existing LEGOs.

    So why bother asking for LEGO ideas in the first place?

  6. Can't say I like the idea of all the sets being based on Megaman 2. There's other (better) games to pick from the franchise too, geez

  7. @Rockman Craze

    That's what blows and I figured something like that was going to happen. I have seen these pieces before, and the fact that they can't be assed to make anything midly unique tells me they are just going to just rehash what is readily available. I will still vote and support this, don't get me wrong! It's just... I wouldn't get my hopes up. :\
