I told them I would buy 15.

Why would I buy 15?

It's a take-off of the FFA's speech for the advisor :D Yay geekdom!

The advisor.

Well, maybe you could PM Tom Fulp about it instead of saying it here...

Support this idea on LEGO Cuusoo!

If the design goes into production, I might stop being upset about them making us remove all those LEGO movies in 2004.

In other news, your B+P badges should be fixed now.

Yeah that bugged me too, I feel like I was tricked into linking them to my FB under the guise that it would make the process easier. Also my validation email didn't arrive for a good while.

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.

Why would NG get pissed over something that they actually WANT them to make?

Their rules state that anything that gets atleast 10 000 supporters gets made, simple as that, since that number represent a large enough appeal for them.

Minecraft had a fan made set go past 10 000 people, so why not Newgrounds?

(

The submission guidelines specifically allow for submissions based on popular IPs (like the Back to the Future model which already has like 5000 supporters). Once a submission reaches 10,000 votes, LEGO approaches the IP holder to negotiate the release of the product. The IP holder then has the right to say no. If they say yes, the individual who created the LEGO model gets 1% profit. But you will be pleased to know that this model was made by a Newgrounds employee (and LEGO enthusiast) which is why Tom is supporting it.

Please elaborate.

Maybe it was just a chrome issue, I couldn't download any of the .psd versions of the assets. I'm able to now that im on a different browser.

I've shared the NG Facebook post about this, so hopefully we can get the rest of the NGers with Facebook accounts to do the same and spread the word.

Asking for support on Facebook and Twitter is key to this becoming a reality. NG has over 100,000 fans on its Facebook page, so if we could get just 1/10th of those people to get behind this, we'd be set.
