Last year I constructed some fan art just for fun: A LEGO version of the classic ELO ship, as well as a custom-painted Jeff Lynne minifigure.
I got the idea to submit it to the LEGO Ideas site, where the general public can vote on proposals to be turned into actual sets for sale! I was hoping we could get the fan base to support this and give it free votes of support to move it into the next phase of the competition. The next threshhold is 1000 votes, and we're about 400 away with about 4 weeks to go until the deadline. If we can get it to 1,000, they extend the voting period by 6 months to reach the next deadline (5,000, then 10,000)
Here's the link with all the info. Voting requires a simple email registration, then click "support" on the project page. LEGO ELO Spaceship
With the number of fans on this forum, we could push this thing over the top easily!
Oh wow, I never realized there was another thread from last year. There was suddenly some renewed interest with one month remaining, so I thought I'd capitalize on it. Only needs about 16 votes per day for the next few weeks to get to 1000. Then it's got 6 more months to gain momentum to the next threshhold.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
