CUUSOO Has worked as shown by the kits it has produced, however TLG isn't using retail stores for distribution, probably because most of the sets wouldn't sell in huge numbers. As for the ideas that haven't got through, well most of them were either unsuitable completely, or had themes against what Lego want to 'endorse'.

Does anyone else have high hopes for the EVE Rifter ship? The model looks good, the developer of EVE, CCP has been 100% supportive of the idea, with Lego kits showing up in some of there development videos, and they advertised the CUUSOO page at the game log-in screen, plus the game doesn't go much further than SW in terms of content, only nothing bad ever happens on screen.

I agree with the OP. Cuusoo is really cool but I was just on there and half the ideas were different Starwars ships for different Clone Trooper groups. Modular Western looks awesome and I will totally buy all of those if they come out but like Back to the Future? Zelda? I have little interest in those. I think Cuusoo should be more about your own ideas, not different movies and games you think are cool.

This is the coolest thing I've seen on Cuusoo and I would love to see this on shelves but more people seem to want SW stuff anf their favorite movies/games. http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/1297 Can you imagine a Brikwar on this thing?

The Space Marine idea looks cool too and they did just make the Galaxy Patrol figure. Actually I have a theory they're going to be making that. The Aliens theme last year was the first time aliens invaded Earth and now maybe in the next one we're going to return the favor to them.

I don't know much about the show, but it doesn't seem to give off the impression of a pr0nographic gorn fest, and in fact according to that commonsense media website it is within the TLG target range (which I assume is 7-12). Even if it was somehow in actuality a pr0nographic gorn fest and I just didn't know it was, TLG is willing to make Avengers sets, a movie that features somebody's eye getting gouged out? I don't even at their hypocrisy.

I hate the fact that there are typically a million of the same thing on there. Do you know how many Doctor Who posts have been made? Too many, for sure.
If people would just search for stuff they want, and then support it, Lego might already be making Doctor Who stuff.

I'm relatively sure the fine folks at Character Building would probably have a thing or two to say about that.

Character Building had Batman for awhile, don't forget. Licenses change hands all the time.

I've honestly never been much of a Cuusoo guy... for some reason their registration scares me off...

Still, I wonder how well received a combination of two great Lego themes into one would be...

The winter review deadline has just passed and both qualifiers are practically lemons. So CUUSOO is it dead dying or decomposed?
