Johnny 5 is alive with 10k supporters on LEGO Ideas

I’ve been waiting ages to say that line but earlier today the project on LEGO Ideas hit the required 10,000 supporters to go into the first review of 2016 and joins the following projects the Fossil Museum, the Gingerbread House, the Modular Train Station, the Old Fishing Store, the Jedi High Council, the Particle Accelerator, the Jurassic Park Visitor Center, and the Rolling BB-8. The first review window closes soon so this might be last project to achieve 10k in this review window,

Here is more on the project: “Number 5, a.k.a. Johnny Five, is the hero of the Short Circuit movies. Number 5 was one of five prototype robots, but after being struck by lightning gained a sense of awareness and free will. The multitude of his expressive abilities, combined with a youthful demeanor and thirst for knowledge (need more input!), made him an instant favorite with audiences in the 80’s.

This small model attempts to replicate the sense of wonder that the robot often displayed. It stands around 7″ tall and is very flexible. Arms, torso, head, and even ‘eyebrows’ can be posed however desired. Also featured are a retracting shoulder-mount and freely moving treads. 

Number 5 contains approximately 300 pieces, making this an ideal mid-range set.”
