Product Idea

Munchkin

The hilarious board game where you get to kill the monsters, steal the treasure, and stab your buddy now has its own LEGO Idea!  With ten thousand supporters, you could actually purchase this set and change the way you and your fellow Munchkins play the game forever!

And now, a little bit about the actual model.

When building the dungeon, I decided to spice up the design of the original a little more by adding loads of details and references to monsters from the game. 

Slumped against a wall on the first level we have Mr. Bones, and sitting in the corner on level three is the Potted Plant, the most harmless of all the monsters.  On level five we have some Flying Frogs, on level six a terrifying Floating Nose, and on level eight, my personal favorite monster, the Net Troll!

The minifigures I have included are playable figures based upon the original three races (excluding humans).  We have a female and a male Elf, Dwarf, and Halfling for players to choose from.  Extra stands could easily be included to add some of your favorite minifigures to the game.  You know what that means: Lizard Suit Guy vs. Plutonium Dragon!

A stand similar to the one included in the Ghostbusters set is included in order to display the minifigures.   A logo is also printed on a 2x2 tile for additional collector’s value.

Although the total piece count is 1215 bricks, several hundred of those are grey gold bar elements which wouldn’t put much of a dent in the price.

Producing a set like this would be nothing new to LEGO, as they already had a massive game theme a few years back.  Plus, with Munchkin’s wide age range of fans and the relatively simple build, LEGO will have no trouble marketing this to both younger and older builders.

I’d also like to say thanks to ThomasW for help with rendering images.  That reflective base really helped out with the negative space problem in my main image.  I wouldn’t have been able to render that without your help, thanks!

If you like my Idea, be sure to share it to social media, LEGO and Munchkin fan pages, and literally anywhere else that comes to mind.  Remember, the more this is shared, the larger the chance we have of getting the supporters needed without running out of time.
