'The Winchester' has been rejected
Today, the Cuusoo team has announced that LEGO will NOT be making 'The Winchester' from Shaun of the Dead, the reason being given, in the annoucement that:
"...we have decided that – good though the model is – the film Shaun of the Dead contains content that is not appropriate for our core target audience of children ages 6-11."
The 'no' decision comes as no surprise to me, to be honest, although I would have loved to have seen it made.
You can read our previous discussion on LEGO's dilemma whether to release or not.
Personally I think the model is crude, blocky, too covered in studs and not enough greebling, particularly compared to other models of spaceships that grace the pages of the likes of Brothers-Brick. However, the craft is an interesting shape so I fully expect LEGO to be able to take the basic design and make something more appealing.
Now let's see if we can give the Modular Western Town one more push and get it to the magic 10000!
