Something to consider, the more votes it gets the more prominent placement it will have on the LEGO Cuuso site. Even if we don't generate 10k people from this post, if we manage to hit 1k it should get us ranked among popular submissions. From there it could get additional support from site regulars and we could consider a bigger push on NG. I think it's a longshot they would actually make it but I would love to see it up on their top rankings.
My question is if they would even consider looking at this since the tank is a copyrighted logo. I know Lego has made some sets and figurines based around copyrighted images and franchises (Star Wars, Spiderman, etc.), but I don't think those were made via fan submissions. I'm sure that Lego has a decent legal team and would make sure that they couldn't get in trouble with you for putting this design out. That would then suggest, though, that they might have to pay you royalties for the design, which they might back away from.
Simply put, I think that this thing being a copyrighted logo is what's going to doom it to not happening. I don't think NG has the broad appeal for Lego to consider buying the license for it and I can't see them just making the thing out of fear that NG (i.e. you) might get pissed and try to sue them for using copyrighted things.
