Pick of the WeekBrownout: Pythagoras Chase
by Nick Royer
I have been waiting for some good "space western" material to show up on Ideas. Firefly is off limits but that does not mean the genre has to be avoided completely and this Brownout seems to fit the bill.
If the style looks a bit familiar it is, because this project is brought to you by Nick Royer formerly of "Space Troopers" and currently also working on Hyperborea.
If you like rough and tumble sci-fi adventure, or you just want to see what a really impressive LEGO Ideas project looks like, well here you go.
LEGO Vehicle models Package (Mini figure scale ve
LEGO has made big version of each of these vehicles and slightly less than minifig version, so this might be a hard sell to get LEGO to produce a third, but it would certainly be nice to see these guys driving around in front of some Modulars and other City sets.

This is just plain gorgeous. The only problem is I don't see how you could get your fig spinning very well. There does not appear to be any room to get your arms in there, well, not without whipping your arm out and destroying one of those factions.
Still, an amazing display piece and worth of note.
I had not idea the legend of William Tell was so detailed. This is one of the things I love about Ideas, finding out new things I never expected. Make sure your project has interesting or fascinating qualities that make people want to share it with other, like I did just now.

Not only retired elements, but parts prone to breaking.
You can certainly get away with Miss Piggy, people will forgive you for Kermit's head, but Gonzo's giant nose just can't be forgotten. It is a defining character trait.
To be blunt, minifigs don't do a very good job of replicating characters that are not nominally human in scale and form. Projects intended to be minifig scale and including abstract characters will always have an issue garnering support.
