Not only does the new year mark a fresh start and a flurry of new year’s resolutions (I’m still going to the gym so all good so far!), but also the start of a fresh round for LEGO Ideas. Well 19 days in and we have our first LEGO Idea to hit 10,000 supporters and lead the charge for the first review group of 2018. The Creator will also be happy as it crossed the line before Carnival erupts in a few weeks in Brazil! Big congratulations to Embraer A-29 Super Tucano (Smoke Squadron) for hitting 10,000 supporters!
The Embraer A-29 Super Tucano (Smoke Squadron) is the equivalent of the famous Red Arrows in the UK and has a strong and passionate following in Brazil. The creator Alex has based his 400 LEGO element design as a replica of one of the 9 squadron planes.
Note – Now I did a bit of digging around on comments and the sudden surge of support and sadly it looks like there may be some question marks around the authenticity of the recent votes. This doesn’t distract from the sound design, but there is a chance that the Idea may be disqualified if there is any doubt on the accounts that voted. Evolving story watch this space.
“Embraer A-29 Super Tucano (Smoke Squadron)” is the first LEGO Idea to make the first 2018 review panel.
Remember to support all those aspiring LEGO builders out there on LEGO Ideas.
