Well this is a huge surprise! I found out on Facebook just now, thanks to a post from a familiar face, that Peter Reid’s Exo Suit model was chosen from the Spring 2013 LEGO CUUSOO review as the next official set.
It doesn’t mean a thing that my prediction was wrong, because I’m really pleased for Pete and his victory. Score one for the UK! I don’t really have much else to say right now, not least because other sites will be throwing a party too – I just hope I’m eventually hooked up with one of them there exo suits.
Of note in the video is that
the results of Winter 2012 and Spring 2013 have yet to be announced, and the Land Rover Defender 110 is still in contention.
I’ve been informed by Brick Fanatics’ post just now that all the other projects (apart from the Land Rover Defender 110) have been rejected, which is incredibly sad news (for the Mini Shop Series). It also means that Thinking With Portals didn’t make the cut either.
