We're off to see the wizard

The latest proposal to get to Cuusoo review is once again mining cinema history, this time heading back a few more decades than previous popular ideas, with an idea for a series of Wizard of Oz vignettes.


The set as proposed would include Dorothy and Toto, along with her companions the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man, and the Scarecrow, as well as the Wicked Witch of the West.


The really neat bit is the three separate sections of yellow brick road and be reconfigured to display the journey in a couple of different ways.


This proposal gained support with impressive speed, and as far as brand fit and saleability goes it's got to be a winner. The only tricky bit is that some of the characters propose new molds, and there aren't many obvious ways round that.

Time will tell, the proposal passed the review stage just in time to get into the autumn line-up, alongside the female minifigure set, CERN's ATLAS experiment, Faster Than Light mini spaceships, Poptropica's Dr. Hare’s Lair, and two proposals for the Ghostbusters' car. With several other review periods still awaiting outcomes it will be some time until we hear how any of these projects do.
