So I love the new Lego Cuusoo projects and recently picked up the Delorean which is amazing, but here's a fun one. It just reached enough votes but I think there is going to be a huge issue to actually getting this into production due to Harmony Gold or just licensing in general but the Lego VF-1 fully transformable with Armored, Super, and Strike parts just met it's goal for possible production consideration.

He also has variant versions including Max and Miria, and the Skull versions from DYRL

Another project that just reached their goals include the Ecto-1 with all four Ghostbusters

As awesome as that build is,and several of the other projects on the site are, I feel like licensing issue will be the death of many of them. That said, if it get's an actual release I will loose my mind and buy one immediately.

This is a MUST for my family. Both my son and Daughter are into the Ninjago, Chima, and Galaxy Squad sets. A set of plans would even be great for those parts not propriatary. Thanks for sharing! - MT

Wonder what something like that would ultimately cost and if it became something they'd have to license, would it even be allowed for sale in the US?

Looking at the VF-1 armored Valkyrie I'd guess anywhere from $100-150 given the complexity of the design. Maybe about $60 for the VF-1 alone. Its possible to simplfy so it uses less parts so that would drive cost down.

As for if it would be allowed for sale in the US? Yes as all it would take is to negotiate the rights from HG. If it was a design from mac plus, II, Zero, 7, or Frontier then no.

I have been working on my own custom Lego Valkyrie that I call the VA4-Peregrine. I have been considering putting it up on the lego Cuusoo site. One benefit of an original design is that you don't need to worry about licensing. I have a gallery on deviant art if anyone is interested. http://jtsilversmith.deviantart.com/gallery/45823764

I was going to say, you should put this thing up on Cuuso and see if you can get paid for the design.

Honestly, it doesn't look like that big of a kit. Even for licensed stuff legos average about 12ยข a piece. So unless this somehow has 800~1000 pieces (which I doubt, even with the GBP-1S parts), it's not going to get into triple digits.
