I honestly never thought about the possibility of a LEGO set based on The Iron Giant, but now I’m wondering why it hasn’t happened already. Fortunately, LEGO enthusiast Brett Cuviello is hoping to remedy the situation with his 2000+ piece Ideas project.
Within this project, there would be 5 main characters: The Iron Giant with changeable eyes and weaponry to depict his evil state from the movie, Hogarth Hughes with the alien bolt he finds at the end of the film, Annie Hughes and a coffee pot, Kent Mansley and a fedora, and Dean McCoppin with a coffee cup. The entire build consists of approximately 2,023 pieces, including the Giant, minifigures, and accessories. The Giant’s head rotates and tilts, and his arms, legs, wrists, hips, and ankles are all articulated to both accommodate his size and weight, and allow him to replicate classic poses from the movie.
As you know, LEGO Ideas projects need 10,000 supporters to be officially considered for production. The good news is, the project came out of the gate strong and looks to be well on it’s way to reaching that goal. But it still needs your support. Check out more pics below.
