    LEGO Toyota FJ

    I have no stake in the project, I just want it to succeed to be able to get a kit of this.

    Someone basically designed a LEGO Toyota FJ, and they're trying to get enough people to like it to produce it.

    I see no harm in the set, I think it's actually quite cool looking.

    It even has the backing of the OEM!

    This looks rather good.

    Lately LEGO rolls out a new model car every year. The last one has been the F40, unveiled recently.

    I need that F40. And the FJ, already created an account and voted on it.

    I knew about the F40, but the only think that's keeping me from getting it is that it has not alternate build. I would have liked LEGO to do something with those new wheel covers.

    I'm more interested in the blue power jet, which looks like a F-35 had a baby with a F-22.

    There's also these projects that's gotten 10,000 votes already.

    LEGO 1969 Corvette

    LEGO Caterham

    If I'm not mistaken, the Corvette is up for review for the next quarter of LEGO Ideas, so we'll know soon enough whether or not it'll be built.

    The Caterham looks good! Not sure about the Corvette though.

    I wouldn't mind getting the F40, the Mini and VW Bus, although I fear I'd have to give up work, social life, friends, family...

    Just as an update, the Caterham and the Toyota both got 10,000 votes, so fingers crossed they both make it.

    Well that's a bummer, the LEGO FJ got rejected.

    I think the Corvette is up for the next-next review period.

    Instead they picked the Yellow Submarine and the Apollo 11 rocket, both of which are really boring to me.

    The LEGO Caterham will soon be available. $80 USD, not too terribly expensive, but still expensive.
