Lego Ideas - The Miracle Express

Postby Hickernator » Tue Feb 05, 2019 2:47 pm

Hi everyone!

I am a massive Queen fan. I grew up with the band and always listen to their music.

I am also a big Lego fan and I have recently created a fan model of The Miracle Express which I have uploaded to Lego Ideas. Lego Ideas is a platform where Lego enthusiasts can create an idea, submit it, garner 10,000 votes with the chance of actually having the set made and sold by Lego. One of their most famous projects was The Beatles Yellow Submarine.

Here is a link to my project

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a4f69599-1ef2-4959-b81f-17862dc9b810

I think it would be awesome to have the band depicted in Lego form, particularly with The Miracle Express, as I think Breakthru is one of their most iconic videos.

Let me know what you think of the model! Any feedback is welcome!

Please do support and share. Above all though, thank you for viewing :)

Would love to see this get picked up.

The band have been depicted in Lego before, for the Lego Rock Band video game. Surprised they never made mini-figures at the time to go along with that.

If the forthcoming Pop Vinyls sell well, it'll hopefully open the door for more fun collectibles.

That's really cool looking, Hickernator. Wonderful job and good luck to you!

Have you thought about sharing your project with Brian? Seems like the kind of thing he might respond to if you message him on his website. I'm sure he'd be excited about it.

Just popped up on my Facebook feed too. Well done.

Mind you, the Facebook trolls have started. :lol:

So what if Freddie didn't really have a moustache at the time?!

It doesn't bother me and I'm not surprised. After the travesty that was Freddie's moustache during WWRY in the movie I can get through just about anything. Lol

Thank you all for your kind words and support! It was a complete shock for me when Queen decided to promote the Miracle Express and I truly feel honoured by their warm response to it! I am working on updates at the moment which should be done by the end of next week (hopefully).

I still need support though. The response has been steady so far however the votes are starting to trickle off. I do have plenty of time to reach 10,000 however I figure that the quicker I get there, the more likely Lego will consider the idea during the review stage.

If you could share the project with anyone you think would be interested in supporting it please do :)

Thanks again everyone for your kind words!

I don't know if you would get involved at this level but does Queen giving some form of official endorsement help? Presumably Lego would need to strike some kind of licensing deal with QPL but the fact the seem quite receptive to the whole thing already must bring the whole thing closer to fruition.
