'Golden Girls' Legos

From ew, It looks like one Lego creator has 10,000 people to thank for being friends.

Lego Ideas user lostsleep has created a possible The Golden Girls Lego set, which would include the show’s iconic living room, foyer, and kitchen sets in Lego form, along with Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, Sophia, and Stan minifigs.

The project has garnered the 10,000 votes of support necessary for Lego to consider actually producing the project, though it has not yet been approved.

As lostsleep describes it, “[The set] has been meticulously recreated to have opening cupboards and fridge in the kitchen, Wicker Sofa and Chairs, a hallway backdrop, a storage closet in the kitchen, and an outdoor area with potted plants and a hose.”

Other licensed products have come from Lego Ideas, so there’s certainly precedence for Lego to approve projects based on existing licenses. Notable creations include a Back to the Future DeLorean and a Dr. Who set.

The Golden Girls set reached its goal earlier today and will now go under review by Lego to determine whether or not it will be produced for stores.

View more images from the set on the Lego Ideas website.

Nice! I'm especially impressed by the wicker chairs.

And I'm curious about the future of this set; Lego seems to be leaning towards vehicular licensed fare with the Ideas website (the Delorean, the Ghostbusters car). Did the Golden Girls ever have a sweet ride?
