Needless to say, I was pretty relieved to wake up this morning to find that the world had not ended. Then I remembered I would have to continue on with the doldrums of everyday life. That is until I saw that LEGO CUUSO had decided to bring this Back to the Future LEGO set to market! Life is worth living again!
For those not in the know, LEGO CUUSO is a website where avid LEGO fans can submit their projects to be voted upon by the community. Once a project receives 10,000 votes it's eligible for review by LEGO and earns the possibility of being put into production. It's a pretty awesome idea, and I've voted once or twice on sets that would love to be able to purchase. Unfortunately no time frame or pricing has been given yet for the BTTF set, but either way this is a must buy.
What is especially awesome is that the creators of a set that wins the review process receive a 1% royalty on all sets sold, and the guys that made the Dolorean are donating it to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Dudes don't come any cooler than that, my friends.
