Let's Make 'Spaceballs: The LEGO Set' Happen!
“Who knows? God willing, we’ll all meet again in Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money.”
Sadly for Yoghurt, the Yoda-spoof of Mel Brooks’ “Spaceballs” (1986), there was no Spaceballs 2, but the quest for money lives on!
Introducing the submitted to Lego’s “Ideas” crowd sourced suggestion platform. User NvdK offered the concept for Lego versions of Lonestar’s space-Winnebago, the “Eagle 5” or “Spaceball 1” battleship. Does this sound appealing? Vote here.
The Eagle 5 set will include Captain Lone Starr and his Schwartz-saber.
Spaceball 1 fans will have access to two Spaceball soldiers. “WE BREAK FOR NOBODY.” bumper sticker included, of course.
After all, as Yoghurt wisely pointed out: “Merchandising, merchandising, where the real money from the movie is made. Spaceballs-the T-shirt, Spaceballs-the Coloring Book, Spaceballs-the Lunch box, Spaceballs-the Breakfast Cereal, Spaceballs-the Flame Thrower!”
May the Schwartz be with you (and the necessary crowd funding).
