My idea is for a small Lego set of the infamous HAL 9000 series computer from the science fiction classic "2001 A Space Odyssey". In the movie, HAL is the central computer to the spaceship Discovery, accompanied by two crew members, Dave Bowman and Frank Poole (see their minifigs below). However, on the journey tensions mount as Hal acts increasingly erratically, despite always speaking in a calm and soothing tone.
The Hal model itself has a reasonable part count of about 250, meaning it would be fairly inexpensive to buy. In addition the eye actually lights up using a light brick, and can be turned on and off. Aswell, Hal's screens are tiles, meaning that Hal's readouts can be changed by changing the tiles, and the desk that hal is above can also act as a screen and display games such as chess that are seen in the movie (see below).
