Remember the 2009 blockbuster called Avatar? With the blue people on a far-away planet called Pandora? I recall how right after the movie, there were several wonderful attempts to create scenes from the film using LEGO. Today I would like to show you a current CUUSOO project that features the famous Scorpion Gunship from the movie in LEGO form.
This LEGO CUUSOO project is the creation on Alkido, and is the most accurate representation of the Scorpion Gunship I have seen. Alkido says: “On this design, I devoted particular attention to the rigidity of the installation, the simplicity of construction and playability.” The LEGO Avatar Scorpion Gunship is a large and detailed model, made of 930 LEGO pieces, and designed in LEGO Digital Designer. There are also some videos that supposed to show some of the features, but for the life of me I couldn’t get them to play – Facebook videos can be finicky. 🙁
You can check out the LEGO Avatar Scorpion Gunship details (also try to play those videos) and vote for the project here: LEGO Avatar Scorpion Gunship. LEGO would have to acquire the license to produce this set, and I’m not sure how likely that is going to be, but there is no harm trying. Avatar is scheduled to have at least two more episodes, which makes this LEGO project all the more relevant. 😉
If you like this LEGO CUUSOO project, please don’t forget to vote. Remember; CUUSOO projects need 10,000 votes before LEGO would consider making them into official LEGO sets, and the LEGO Avatar Scorpion Gunship needs a lot of votes to get there. Also, if you have some comments of questions for Alkido, you can contact him through his CUUSOO page. You can vote for this project here: VOTE FOR LEGO AVATAR GUNSHIP
So how do you like the LEGO Avatar Scorpion Gunship? Is this a LEGO model you would be interested to buy? Have you created any scenes from Avatar yourself? Share and discuss in the comment section below! 🙂
