March’s monthly CUUSOO feature is this impressive Nebulon-B Escort Frigate by LDiEgo dubbed the “Redemption” which was a captial ship used by the Rebellion, as seen at the end of The Empire strikes back. His model uses clever building techniques and features removable sections that add various details and play features. It includes 7 minifigs. This would be the first Rebel Alliance capital ship produced by TLG, which would make it a important addition to the LEGO STAR WARS theme. Visit the CUUSOO page if you wish to support this project.
Next up in our monthly CUUSOO feature is something not seen very often, this amazing Rebel Snowspeeder built by drakmin is c0mposed of mainly TECHNIC elements. LEGO STAR WARS last had a TECHNIC set in 2003. As this creation shows, there is plenty of potential for new TECHNIC sets based on the STAR WARS Universe. This is another perfect fit for a CUUSOO STAR WARS project. If you would like to support drakmin on his journey to 10,000 supporters and see more of his Snowspeeder, you can visit his CUUSOO page.
This month for our new CUUSOO feature, we are featuring UCS TIE Fighter created by capitalbrick. At just over 1100 parts this model is ideally suited for LEGO’s already established UCS Star Wars line. The TIE Fighter is one of the most iconic vehicles in the Star Wars Universe, and is long overdue for the UCS treatment. If you would like to support capitalbrick’s UCS TIE Fighter, please visit the CUUSOO page for more details and information on this fantastic creation.
This month’s CUUSOO feature is Sandpeople Patrol by Daiman. The rendered Bantha is nicely done and would make a good addition to the line of Star Wars creatures we have received in the past. It also features two Tusken Raiders, Luke Skywalker and R2-D2 as minifigs. The small playset would include a moisture evaporator and a rockface. The small size and uniqueness of this project make it well suited for CUUSOO. If you would like to support Daiman on his journey to 10,000 supporters and read more about his project you can visit his CUUSOO page.
The Eurobricks Star Wars Forum Blog is proud to announce a new feature and category: LEGO CUUSOO: STAR WARS Projects. Next year will mark the 15th anniversary of LEGO’s licensing agreement with Lucasfilm LTD, during that time a variety of sets have been produced recreating scenes from the films, television series and games. Therefore submitting a original idea on LEGO CUUSOO for a Star Wars product can prove to be difficult. LEGO CUUSOO is a platform operated by LEGO where fan created projects can be uploaded and supported by users. Should a project reach 10,000 supporters it will qualify for a official review by LEGO, where they determine if the project has the potential to become a real LEGO product. The first project we have selected to showcase is this finely built model “Star Tours” created by CUUSOO user HJR-Holland. Star Tours is a Star Wars themed ride featured at the Disneyland Park in California, USA. His model is based on the original Starspeeder 3000 ride and features some interesting building techniques and play features. The ride doors open up just like on the real ride. It also features a selection of minifigures. If you like his idea and wish to support it, please visit his official CUUSOO page.
