    Legend of Korra: Korra & Allies vs. Amon and the Mecha Tank

    What is Cuusoo?
    Odds are you have happened upon this page without knowing anything about Cuusoo.

    Cuusoo is a site where people submit ideas for Lego sets. If the idea can get 10,000 Supporters then Lego will review the projected. If Lego likes the idea then they will create their own version of the project and mass produce it to make it available to fans.

    If you already have a facebook or twitter account you can create an account with no hassle. Otherwise it only takes about a minute to make a Cuusoo account to support a project.

    So, if you would like to see Lego produce this set then please create an account and support. If you really like it, then please tweet it, post it, and otherwise help to spread the word.
    ***********************************************************************

    This project is a proposal to create a set based on a collection of figures and a Mecha Tank from the animated series Legend of Korra.

    This is now a collaborative project between Kaminoan and myself.

    This project now depicts Kora, Mako, Bolin, Asami, Amon, the Lieutenant, Sato (in the Mecha) and a Mecha Tank. In the following weeks, Tenzin and Lin Beifong will be added as well.

    I cannot promise that all these figures will be included in the final product but the faster support is accumulated the more the final product will likely have.

    ************************************************************************************************************

    Of course I would love it if this project was already at 10k, but I am happy to have reached 1k on the same day that Book 2 premieres.

    Now, I will recreate this video shortly, with better dialog and hopefully better focus but here are the figures and clockwork that won an award at Brick Fiesta 2013.

    I have tried promoting this project everywhere I can think of. I cannot however post to the Nickelodian Legend of Korra Message Board due to age restrictions. I would really appreciate it if anyone who can post to that message board mention the existence of this project.

    Image Left

    The cockpit of this Lego Mecha Tank opens just like the one in the series. The canopy opens vertically, then the side plates hinge up and the lower plates hinge out.

    The arms are designed to allow motion like a human arm. The Shoulder allows for universal motion and the elbow acts as a hinge. The three claws can open and close.

    The upper torso can also rotate at the hips

    Also Depicted above is the "grabbing line" accessory.

    Image Right

    This image depicts a printed canopy that has "portholes" that more accurately reflect the Mecha Tanks in The Legend of Korra, though I might be partial to having them kept simple.

    In addition to the Mecha Tank, the above depiction has two more possible "accessories" for the Mecha Tank: The bola and an electromagnet with minifig "back plate" (the single part in the middle).

    The back plate can be put around the neck of a minifig to add a stud to the front or back of a minifig...this will allow you to "stick" a minifig to the "magnetic" plate arm.

    As for the Bola, Lego does produce an element which is two 1 x 1 round plates attached by string instead of chain. I would prefer to use those instead of the chain elements, but I do not have access to those at the moment.

    Note to previous supporters:

    I posted this project in 2012.10.09, nearly a year ago.
    I did a poll to see which character where the most popular to include in the project and the fans responded equally between Lin Beifong and Asami Sato.

    This project has not yet breached 1000 supporters let alone the 10000 needed for review. If this project is to succeed it needs to get to 10,000 quickly so that production can begin soon while the show is still in production.

    In response to this, I have changed the line up a bit but the final figures will utilize feedback from the fans. I hope that whatever comes of it, this does not disappoint the 950 people who have supported the project to date.
