Brett Waller’s Ghostbusters the next CUUSOO set

CUUSOOCongratulations to Brett Waller and his take on the Ghostbusters theme, one of two Ghostbusters sets under review, which has been proclaimed as the winner of the LEGO CUUSOO Fall 2013 Review Results.

This year sees the 30th Anniversary of Ghostbuster so it seems like the perfect time for LEGO to introduce the ECTO-1 and the Ghostbuster team into their ever growing line.

Pricing and release are to be advised.

LEGO are still looking in to the possibility of producing Altariels Female minifigure set and an announcement regarding that will happen in due course.

Here is the video announcement…

Assault on Wayne Manor CUUSOO project

Assault on Wayne ManorA new Batman project has appeared on CUUSOO and it looks pretty awesome!

Assault on Wayne Manor is a modular set which features a basement for the Batcave, two floors and roof. We are not quite sure how this would work with existing modular sets as none have basements, but the premise is pretty cool!

There are plenty of nice little features throughout the design click here to see the description provided by the creator DarthKy.

As cool a set as this is, it is unlikely it will ever pass the LEGO Review Board as LEGO currently have the licence to produce DC sets. Previous sets such as the fantastic Brent Waller Tumbler failed at the review stage for similar reasons.
