Macross becomes the first proposal in the Cuusoo winter review

The autumn review period only just closed on Cuusoo, so the latest project to pass the ten-thousand milestone becomes the first idea to get into the winter review. That proposal is the Macross VF-1 Valkyrie, a transforming mecha sort-of-thing based on an (apparently) classic Japanese animation. The project has been around for ages, gradually building support, but unlike other recent successful projects not relying on big spikes of social media support. The proposed set would be a transforming robot, that goes from humanoid form to partial aeroplane, along with two different sets of armour to give it different looks.

Having no familiarity with Macross I don't have any knowledge to consider the suitability of this project in terms of brand fit, but a mech design certainly wouldn't be alien to Lego. The winter review doesn't close until January, and we can expect to wait another year or so before we hear the outcome of this project and the others that join it.
