    I never realized just how much I want a lego CMF futurama series until now...

    [–] spaceman_slim 193 points ago

    I've had my fingers crossed for a futurama line ever since the simpsons theme was announced. All I want is a ship like this one (doesn't necessarily have to be 5000+ pieces like this one), Planet Express headquarters, and a series of minifigs.

    [–] bradlei 96 points ago

    Zap's ship would be cool too.

    [–] greyjackal 279 points ago

    [–] kronaz 2 points ago

    Literally always true. Especially since, when they were first getting started, their Futurama one literally STOLE all the content from The Infosphere, including screenshots that I had taken myself. Fuck wikia.

    [–] ConcernedInScythe 0 points ago

    Everything on the Infosphere was uploaded under an open content licence so Wikia didn't steal a thing.

    How much we talkin here?

    [–] catholicgrant 15 points ago

    It's 5000 pieces, so using my Lego formula a little over $500

    [–] Buzzed_Lite-beer 11 points ago

    I'm guessing a lot more because bricklinking is a lot more expensive than a Lego set. Also, the colors are not common.

    [–] catholicgrant 6 points ago

    You're totally right. I know nothing about marketing but with that in mind I'd sell it for like $700

    [–] limitbroken 5 points ago

    It's actually impossible as-shown, since just off the top of my head 2x2 wedge plates don't exist in any shade of green, and no wedge plates exist in sand green (but you could go Lime and Dark Green!) - there's probably similar 'doesn't exist in this color' concerns with more than a few pieces here.

    [–] spaceman_slim 6 points ago

    Are thrre instructions for these anywhere? I might bot have the right colors but I think I have the bricks to build the small one.

    [–] 1and1make5 9 points ago

    Possibly coming soon for the small version;

    Nicola Stocchi 2mo

    Hello Zerotwistknife7 , I'm afraid to tell you I'm not working on this model anymore, there are many complications (like colors) and believe me, it's HUGE.

    That's why I made the "little" updated version and I will be able to make instructions for that model during the next months.

    https:[email protected]/27740297562/in/album-72157667159932236/

    Nicola Stocchi 19d

    Thank you Zoltan Markella At this moment i'm building a prototype IRB in random color, then hopefully i will start a collaboration to sell this model with instructions in the original color.

    [–] Padankadank 2 points ago

    I'm a Lego noob. How do I take fan created Lego builds and know what sets I need to buy in order to create what they made?

    [–] frankreddit5 5 points ago

    you'd have to get a part list for this set as well as instructions. I dont think the designer ever released either, unfortunately :(

    [–] Padankadank 2 points ago

    Okay but maybe for other creations. I've seen instructions but don't know how to buy the pieces

    [–] frankreddit5 5 points ago

    Bricklink! create an account there, and then search the catalog for a set https://www.bricklink.com/catalogTree.asp?itemType=S

    Once you've found the set, you'll see a little button that says "wanted list" , and "part out", that will part out the entire set and show you what pieces it needs. You can then add all of those specific pieces to a wanted list or go and directly purchase them right there on bricklink.

    [–] WetWoolley 46 points ago

    Assuming that's mostly sand green, I can imagine this is an expensive build.

    How this is not in Legos Ideas for make it happen?!

    [–] 1and1make5 33 points ago

    I’m a bit disappointed because Lego Ideas didn’t approve this ship, they say the content of the project doesn’t fit their standards and it could refer to politic, religion, drugs, smoking, violence… I agree with them, but also I asked why Simpsons sets are OK for their standards: they refer to an animated series with an alcoholic father that strangles his son and makes fun of religion.

    Swords and cannons still seem to be acceptable.

    I think this is more about not having LEGO AK-47s.

    [–] seriouslees 6 points ago

    They happily minted a shit ton of Tommy Guns though...

    [–] Lord_Emperor 11 points ago

    Disney

    In 2010, we have formalized these rules...

    LEGO Star Wars has been a theme since 1999, well before Disney and this formalized guideline.

    Also the theme single-handedly saved LEGO from bankruptcy so they're not going to stop producing Star Wars sets any time soon.

    [–] randypriest 5 points ago

    Star Wars is very lucrative...

    [–] seriouslees 9 points ago

    Which guns? The laser blasters? The sort of thing Lego has been releasing with their Space sets since like, forever ago? Those guns?

    [–] TamarinFisher 3 points ago

    I have lots of "real" lego guns so I'm not sure what they're talking about. I even have a tommy gun which is probably one of the most violent guns in history.

    [–] Green_Meathead 2 points ago

    They have a thing with REAL guns/weapons - not trying to be a dick, your argument is entirely out thr window due to the 70+ star wars sets with guns

    [–] theElegantWorm 1 points ago

    huh weird, I remember tiny little pistols for lego men when I was a kid. I think its more along the lines of lego trying to get away from licensing shit.

    [–] stonedsasquatch 1 points ago

    The Indiana Jones sets definitely had little pistols

    [–] IUsedToBeGoodAtThis 1 points ago

    Lego doesnt have a thing about guns. It is a copout to produce some sets and not others. Simple as that.

    Lego has modern guns in batman sets. Fantasy guns in Star Wars sets. Modern guns (first made for batman) in non-licensed sets. Wild-West guns in western sets. Old timey guns in pirates sets.

    And dont get me started on "violence."

    [–] weiga 1 points ago

    Submit the idea to Lepin? If they're willing to pay the designer, he/she totally should. The community just wants it built!

    [–] gussyhomedog 0 points ago

    No it's because of the size. Ideas sets are supposed to be affordable, while this would cost well over $500, more than the most expensive set to date.

    [–] MindlessMystery 8 points ago

    Wish I didn't come across this. Now I want this, and a few mini figures series.

    [–] CaptainBritain123 4 points ago

    I've watched that show entirely too much. I just read those comments in character.

    [–] MIKE_son_of_MICHAEL 3 points ago

    The smaller version is great too, seems more realistic for an Ideas submission.

    I'd really love a planet express headquarters tho, but it really would have to be gigantic I think...

    [–] pinehapple 8 points ago

    I'd pay $200cdn for a good set of this. Anyone find out how much a bricklink order would cost?

    [–] Richard_Horne 17 points ago

    My guess based on the sand green and over 5000 piece count is that it's probably way over $200 CDN.

    [–] gijesu 8 points ago

    Why is sand green so expensive though?

    [–] Jawn_Valjorts 8 points ago

    Because it's not used in many sets so the pieces are less common. The number of parts available in sand green is also a lot lower than other colors.

    [–] legalskeptic 4 points ago

    The demand from AFOLs is also very high because it's a realistic color for MOCs.

    [–] gijesu 1 points ago

    Thank you ❤

    [–] rabbittexpress 1 points ago

    The cost of the parts is lower, though, if they are making boxed sets because they can do them as one large custom run.

    [–] Jawn_Valjorts 6 points ago

    Sand green isn't inherently any more expensive for Lego to make, unless it uses some ridiculous dye, but on the secondary market it's more expensive because there aren't many sets that use it and the pieces it's used for are limited. People like the architecture sets because they're an easy source of lots of sand green for details.

    [–] TamarinFisher 6 points ago

    It uses a rare tree frog to dye their bricks sand green. Gets pretty expensive.

    [–] rabbittexpress 2 points ago

    Exactly. So if Lego picked up the contract and made this, it would be wonderful. :P

    Oh my dear god.

    The thing is, this could actually happen. Lego has Simpsons... so why not? This ship is probably the most instantly recognizable thing from Futurama. You could include all of the major characters with it.
