Modular Western Town is an Archived project on LEGO CUUSOO created by mb_bricks on October 14th, 2011. It was his first project to reach 10,000 supports; though because of banned accounts, the current support number has dropped down to 9,937 supports.

The project was archived due to a conflict with the new LEGO theme, The Lone Ranger. The timing, no matter how coincidental, might subtract from the profits of either one or both; thus the project will not be produced. It is believed that when Disney licensed The Lone Ranger to LEGO that part of the contract included LEGO not being able to release any other Western sets as long as The Lone Ranger was being sold.

Special thanks to Bonaparte, CopMike and the whole eurobricks team for their constantly support. Furthermore, I want to thank def and Yatkuu for translating my description and Kris Kelvin for his inspiring work. Thanks to Brickset, the Brothers Brick and the whole AFOL community. You guys are amazing!!!

Vote for more amazing western themed buildings here!


Check out the teaser with a 360 degree spin on youtube!


A new line of modular houses based on a classic western theme. Each house represents a single set and can be combined with other sets of the series. The buildings are featuring an accurate interior with a lot space for a fun play experience. Possible sets: sheriff's place with jail, the gun store, the saloon, the rail station, the post office with stage coach, the bank, the central store...

Thanks for your support so far! I think this would turn out in a fun set collection with a lot possibilities and combinations.

For more information and details, please visit my flickr account

I will update my presentation with your favorite building and more details for LEGO. Stay tuned!

The community has chosen the saloon as their favorite model!

Please take a minute and share this project with your friends on Facebook and Twitter, thanks for your support. Have fun!

Congratulatory message from LEGO for +500 votes

Congratulations on all of the support! This is an incredibly detailed and fun project. A Western approach to the modular town series could very well become a hit. Since you are proposing a series of products, keep in mind that we will only produce one for starters. Can you show more detail of the one you think would be the best model to kick off a potential series? Keep going for the supporters. Good luck on your journey to 10,000!

Dear mb_bricks,

Congratulations on passing this milestone of 5,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO for the Modular Western Town. You're halfway there!

Over the coming weeks, veteran designer Steen Sig Andersen, the same designer who built the final Shinkai 6500 and LEGO Minecraft Micro World models, will investigate your Modular Western Town model and build our own concept. We will post the results here with our comments once that is complete.

Best wishes as you continue on your journey to achieving 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO.

Congrats on 10,000 Supporters, mb_bricks!

Wow! We tip our hats to you for the beautiful and incredibly detailed Western Town model, and also to the persistence and teamwork of the various online LEGO fan communities that have come together to support this project.

Congratulations on achieving 10,000 supporters. We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.

What happens now? This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A "LEGO Jury" composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We'll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product, including playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.

Timing of the LEGO Review From here forward, the LEGO Review will take place quarterly. The next review will be held starting in June and will include all projects that reach 10,000 between now and then. We'll update the LEGO CUUSOO blog with additional details next week.

The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the Modular Western Town concept. As we are consolidating the review of all pending projects into a quarterly process, the concept model that began development will be refined and revealed should the project pass review.

We will inform you of our decision, and if green-lighted, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.

We will post follow-up information and our decision here.

Results of the LEGO Review for Modular Western Town

2012.12.20


First and foremost, congratulations again to mb_bricks for reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO, and toward everyone for all of the support of the Modular Western Town project! The Summer LEGO Review has concluded and the LEGO Review Board has arrived at its decision about the four projects in review.

The Modular Western Town project conflicts with an ongoing project at the LEGO Group. As a result, the project does not meet the business case requirements and it has not passed the LEGO Review.

mb_bricks has been a pleasure to work with throughout this process and has shown a lot of passion and enthusiasm for his idea and LEGO bricks. We also recognize the intense interest of all of you who supported this project, and we are sorry to deliver this disappointing news.
