The Lego Ideas program is THISCLOSE to making the dream of Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia (and Stan) immortalized in minature plastic forma a reality! The proposed set was designed by user lostsleep on March 18th and accepted by the Lego Ideas program, which allows Lego fans of all ages to submit suggestions for new Lego creations. The creator describes the proposed collection as
This is a recreation of the Golden Girls House used in filming the popular 1980's show that is still watched daily around the world. It is the Foyer, Living Room, and Kitchen built like a TV set, with one wall removed and a full view into the space. It comes with 5 minifigures including Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, Blanche, and Stanley. It 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.
The set also includes iconic scence from the show, including Dorothy and Sophia recreating Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe", Rose's battle with a blackmailing Girl Scout over her beloved teddy bear, and the infamous 'frozen heads' episode! And, of course, there is a cheesecake.
The project now has 343 days to drum up the 10,000 votes - it currently has 2803 - from supporters necessary for the set to proceed to the next phase of the Ideas program. Provided that the set meets the company's standards for "playability and safety, and fits into Lego's brand," the Golden Girls Lego set can move into production! To support this amazing and completely necessary endeavor, vote here and then treat yo self to a piece of cheesecake!
ETA: The creator has promised that if the project gets to 5000 votes, they will add the Lanai to the set!
