The Star Wars Dark Bucket has achieved 10000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO for it to be reviewed and considered to be made into an official LEGO set. At first the project started off with Darth Vader and an army of 99 Stormtroopers. LEGO made a comment on Haru’s message on 5000 votes that “it will not be possible to release a set consisting solely of minifigures.” LEGO also adds, “if the Dark Bucket concept were to go further, it would need to include some significant brick-based model component to be considered a construction toy for licensing purposes.”
The project was revised and called the Star Wars Dark Bottle which consists of a Darth Vader minifigure and 16 Stormtroopers as well as brick pieces for the minifigures and to spell out the Star Wars logo. The project will now be reviewed in the September session. We can only hope for more Stormtroopers to add to our battalion. Congratulations to Haru for this accomplishment.
