Spinner-final version

    Newer Older

    Ha, just as I was getting ready to upload the pics of my improved Spinner, I got a mail from the Cuusoo team informing me that my Spinner project has been deleted. Apparently it "refers to a brand or licensed property that contains content or themes that do not fit the LEGO Group's standards for appropriate content".
    True, I admit, but it was worth a shot. So thank you all who gave my Spinner your support and hope you like these pictures.

    And as much as I understand TLC's need to clean the house, I can't help but wonder just how many great ideas for a new fire truck will come of it? They want new and original ideas for existing non-licensed themes, yet people bombard them with zombies and master chiefs. Yes, cool city creations would be nice, but how likely are they to reach 10K?
    Hey, how about a flying police car ; )

      Fantastic work my friend, still a reference model! Honestly, I can't figure why Blade Runner would be less appropriate than Lord of the Rings...

      Thanks! And let's face it, if there was a reawakening of the Bladerunner franchise, Lego would consider it like anything else. Tolkien is downright scary and the new Batman movies could hardly be called suitable for kids, but they will sell bricks. An obscure SF from the eighties, a cult movie or not, is just not worth the effort for them.

      I totally agree. I've had the same argument on the upcoming Batman sets. You wouldn't believe how many didn't see this classic, and yet they know by heart the names of some 100 clone commanders :(

      Love this model, wish Cuusoo would have kept it. I was wondering if you could post a photo of the underside of the model. I've been trying to build one for myself, but can't seem to get that section right.

      Cuusoo not accepting your Spinner is crazy! Their frontpage features a the Batmobile right now along with the Back-to-the-Future Delorean. What's the underside look like, btw?

    14. kaitimar 28 months ago | reply

      I accept that Bladerunner is not as appealing to kids as Batman. It's as simple as that.
      The underside hasn't changed much. I will take a pic when I have the time.

      So wanting to build this, but don't have all the parts... *sigh*

    16. zombklr 14 months ago | reply

      it took me a while to find all the parts. most of them i ordered form www.bricklink.com

    17. Jackdaw 11 months ago | reply

      Do you a parts list for this build available? I'd happily pay for it.

      You redid the backside! I was thinking of this myself but haven't had time. Did you do anything different with the undercarriage? That's the photo you're missing :)
