In the past, building a cool Lego model from scratch is something you’d do just for your own satisfaction. Now though, Lego has its cool ‘Ideas’ platform, which lets anyone upload images of their Lego creations in a sort of popularity contest.
If an idea passes 10,000 ‘support’ votes it’s sent on to a special review process, and transformed into a proper commercial product. It’s something we’ve seen happen recently to an awesome Caterham 7 model, and a quick peruse of the Ideas site reveals all sorts of great replicas waiting for your support.
Hat tip to Camilo Re for pointing us in the direction of some of these!
