Salutations good people.

I have created a Lego set based on the red dwarf crew! if we can get it 10,000 votes this set could hit the stores!!

for those who vote and share this set with everyone...a place in silicon heaven awaits, for those who ditch the boys from the dwarf....you shall be fed to the despair squid!!

Seriously though please take a look and you do like it please remember to #VoteSmeg :)

You've got competition. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/142645

I was just wondering if you should remove your "Vote Smeg" logo from your pics. It's a good line but LEGO are very conscious about their image, and if your Idea proved popular I don't know how happy they'd be having smeg 'plastered all over their site' for the press to pick up on.

Someone submits an idea for a set to the LEGO Ideas website, registered members of the website can then vote on it for a certain amount of time. If, within this time, it gets to 10,000 votes it advances to the next stage wherein LEGO look into it further, see if it's viable and compatible with their philosophy and give it the thumbs up or thumbs down. Getting the thumbs up means the project is released to under the LEGO Ideas brand, with the original builder getting a percentage of the profit and a warm glow inside.

Ah I see. So do you have to build it first or just have the concept?
