I’d known about this latest Kickstarter project for a hot minute, but just before I left the dungeon to head to Leicester, I decided to give it a good backing.
This is for the LiteUpBase: an invention by the “Law Team”, with the Kickstarter project being run by Catherine Law. It’s exactly what it says on the tin, a light up base for LEGO models and displays, as well as other uses (demonstrated on the Kickstarter page).
The design has a 12×12 studded top and can be bought to light up in different colours: white, red, blue, green, yellow and multicoloured. You can even combine multiples to make a larger lit base.
Ive backed three other (successful) Kickstarter projects before this one, and backing this project was a no-brainier. I will admit to wanting to have a go at making my own lit stand, but I thought it would be a much better idea to leave it to the professionals. It would make showcasing smaller MOCs less shameful for sure, and could possibly introduce a new dynamic to larger displays.
Most importantly, I’m all about supporting great ideas (unlike some who call themselves AFOLs), and I want to see this one succeed. In my book that means putting my Ns where my nouns are.
They have quite some way to go to reach their USD 15,000 goal, but if other projects were able to do it (Cows vs. Pigs supporters, I’m looking at you) there’s no reason this one can’t, other than general apathy.
So what are you waiting for? Go get yours!
