After the closing of the first 2017 review panel and a small breather, the first LEGO Idea for the second 2017 review panel has hit 10,000 supporters. The starting volley is an Idea titled “The Blues Mobile” based on the cult 1980’s movie Blues Brothers. For those who don’t know what or how this works refer to my previous blog on LEGO Ideas.
The ideas creator Eini (Kai Einfeldt) took inspiration and decided to base his idea around the Blues Mobile – The iconic Dodge Monaco that starred in the movie during the brothers “mission from God” to save a Catholic Orphanage. The model is modelled around the same scale as the Lego Ghostbusters Ecto One. For those in love with the car more than the scene the creator has cleverly designed the idea to remove the large oversized speaker.
Of course any model or idea based around the Blues Brothers would not be complete without the Blues Brothers themselves – Jake and Elwood Blues. The brothers have been captured in all their suited glory with iconic hat and shades.
Remember to support all those aspiring LEGO builders out there on LEGO Ideas.
