The Lego Space Marines need your help!

Anyone here like Lego? I know I do.

Lego has this website where fan-made models can become real, official Lego sets, and make it to production, which is awesome. One of these projects is a badass-looking Space Marine theme:



They need enough people to say they like the idea by clicking on a big green button. At that point, it will go to review, and if it passes, we'll have some Lego Space Marines on our shelves soon enough! So far, there are about 9,800 supporters, and the project needs 10,000 to go to the review phase. To make the winter review phase, it needs to hit 10,000 by December 3, I think.

If you get a minute, please visit LEGO® CUUSOO | Space Marines! and show your support for Lego Space Marines!

I'm just a fan; I have nothing to do with the Lego Space Marines project myself other than digging it. Yes, there is an official Lego space marine minifigure so far, but he's only available in a series of blind-bagged of minifigs, so it's hard to find him, much less army build them! And the upcoming Galaxy Force line looks disappointing, with garish colours and motocross helmets instead of the bulky space armour these guys have.

So please, visit LEGO® CUUSOO | Space Marines! and support the project. Thanks a lot!

Motto: ""Excessive force is not necessary.""
Those look amazing! I've been out of the "system" loop for a while, since Exoforce, and have only been collecting Hero Factory up to this point. I did manage to procure 11 blue space marine figs from the blind packs a few months back though.

I've been dissatisfied with recent System offerings because of all the licensed themes (which IMO lack the imagination of original sets; it's what killed Megabloks for me) and what few original themes released have been somewhat goofy. However, the new Galaxy Squad theme they are now releasing looks fantastic and has inspired me to get into System collecting again.

These red Space Marine sets would be a luscious icing on the cake! I can't wait!

It looks awesome to be sure, but with a title like Space Marines, you know Lego is going to have to keep an eye on what Games Workshop thinks.

I thought that, too. When I saw the title, I went "Wat? 40k LEGO sets?", now I know it is something entirely different. However, I think that if this would ever get made that it would have to go under a serious name change.
