The Haunted Mansion: 50th Anniversary
At the Edge of 10k...On
Wow. I didn’t really think we would get here, let alone this fast. Honestly folks, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. This would not be possible with out all of you working to make this happen. I can’t say what the future will bring for this project, but I will remain hopeful and I hope you will too, and stay tuned for my next Disney Parks project I have in the works.
Wow! I can't believe we are now over 60% of the way through our journey. Thank you so much to all of your support and those out there sharing the project. Keep it up, folks!
At this point I would like to make some exciting plans known. If my project is lucky enough to be chosen to enter production, I plan on taking a few copies of the set, signing them and putting them up for auction. The proceeds of this will be donated directly to the Make A Wish Foundation, a charity that has always been very close to my heart and whose mission I feel is very in line with the Lego and Disney brand. It's my hope that through this project we can all help to make an impact for good in the lives of others.
Please enjoy this celebratory picture made possible by artist, Josh Laukaitis!
2500 SUPPORTERS and a little addition...On
Everybody needs a buggy now and then… I cannot thank you all enough for their votes this weekend bringing us to over 2500 SUPPORTERS on our project. Please keep spreading the word and doing what you do best, you are all amazing! In celebration, I am submitting this Doombuggy concept (minifigure not included) for consideration as an addition to the Haunted Mansion 50th Anniversary set but feel free to take a look at it and see if you can build it for yourself, and send me a picture!
OUR FIRST 100! And a quick FAQ...On
We hit our first 100 supporters! Onward to our 10k goal! Here’s a fun little vignette I made of my favorite hitchhiking trio, just to enjoy. Do you have any fun vignettes based on scenes from the Haunted Mansion? Show them off in the comments so we can all check them out!
Also, I've been getting asked here and there, "Why are you making Orlando's version? The version in California is the one turning 50 this year!" You are all totally correct. I attempted the Disneyland version a couple years ago and unfortunately, it didn’t meet the supporter deadline. As you may know, the process for gathering votes and being reviewed by Lego can take 1-2 years meaning that this would ideally be able to be approved by 2021, Orlando’s 50th, so thats the rationale behind the choices made.
Please remember to support and share on your social media today! #LegoHauntedMansion
Wow! I can’t believe we’re already up to 50 supporters! Thank you to everyone! Attached is a little mock-up of what our butler might look like. Hope you enjoy and keep spreading the word!
