The big vote for 2012: Do you want Lego to produce an Android themed set?
Are you prepared to vote on the big issue for 2012? A gentleman by the name of Marc Young has come up with a Lego model of the well-known Android green robot. Young has passed his design on to the toymaker which has published it on its Cuusoo web site, And that is where you come in. For Lego to produce a version of Young's Android robot and sell it wherever Lego products are sold, the design needs to garner 10,000 votes to be brought up before the company's review board where a final decision is made.

Some of the parts move

Young promises to pass out the instructions if he can get the 10,000 votes, Right now he has a bit over 4,000. The design uses 205 lime green bricks and cost about $30 to build. Young says that if Lego does support the design, final brick count could be reduced by 25%. The head rotates 360 degrees while the antennas each have 100 degrees of motion. You might remember that earlier this year, someone had come up with a Lego version of the Apple Store which also needed your votes and apparently fell short.

If you want to see an Android themed Lego model in the stores, get to the sourcelink and vote now.

http://aboutus.lego.com/en/news-room/2012/march/annual-result-2011/ http://www.fastcompany.com/1681192/most-popular-toy-ever-made-lego-survey Sounds like they're doing alright to me. Most popular toy ever. Sounds like a good match for the most popular mobile OS ever.

I would like an Apple themed Lego collection. Lego Lawsuit, Lego Judge Koh, Lego Foxconn, Lego Pegatron, a piece of Lego that tells you you're holding it wrong... And all the Lego pieces should have the same size from generation one to five and connect only to each other, making the rest of your Lego obsolete. (You can jailbreak them by breaking a part of each piece so it would connect to other Legos.) Reminds me of my childhood. Those were the days.
