LEGO Ideas The Little Prince – update

You might remember the LEGO Little Prince project on LEGO Ideas by Colin Walle that we covered just about a year ago (see: LEGO Ideas: The Little Prince in LEGO). Since then the project reached another 4500 votes, and Colin also spent some time finalizing and perfecting the model based on the feedback he received. 🙂

At the time of this writing the LEGO Little Prince is the fourth most supported project on LEGO Ideas with over 7800 votes. It still needs about 2200 votes to reach the minimum of 10,000 supporters for LEGO to consider to make it into an official LEGO set. There are little over 80 days left to reach the minimum (the deadline is September 27th), so Collin asked for our help to give the project a final push.

Colin made a number of improvements to the LEGO Little Prince project since the last time we covered it. First of all it is now solidified that the proposed set would have three sections: the Little Prince on Asteroid B-612, the narrator of the book (author Antoine de Saint-Exupery) in his Breguet 14 airplane, and the fox with his foxhole and apple tree (where the Little Prince first met him). This is the first LEGO Ideas project that incorporates the new fox, which was recently released in the LEGO Elves sets. Very cute, isn’t it? 😀

The LEGO Ideas Little Prince project has been well received by the LEGO fan community and has been featured by pretty much every major LEGO blog and forum. It has also been supported by Mark Osborne, the director of the upcoming The Little Prince animated movie (also directed Kung Fu Panda). And it was recently featured on the Minnesota CBS TV news, and in the local newspaper. It is also supported by the Saint-Exupery estate that owns the license, so there should be no issues there.

    This project evolved quite a bit since we saw it last time. The fox is a nice touch, and the plane also looks good. The only thing I don’t like is the orange lights used as flowers (that’s what they are, right?). Just the green pieces would be enough, maybe top them with another color of the same piece to simulate flowers. Also, I would rather use a standard red flower for the rose instead of a gem. But other than that it looks nice. I voted for it before, so I can’t vote again, but nice to see this project so close to the goal.

      Good point about the flowers and the rose. I would rather have them as regular flowers too. Keep in mind that LEGO designers do look at all submissions and bring it up to LEGO’s standards. And I also like the fox. 😀

        I thought it could have been an attempt to emulate Saint-Exupery’s drawing style, which is quite naive, but it seems that it isn’t really the case. Maybe the designer lacked flower pieces… =/

          Colin Walle was his name, it seems…

    Looks really cool. I remember reading it when I was little.
