Product Idea

Micro-Ice-Era

Inspired by requests from the great supporters of Micro-Dinosaurs, MachineWolf7 presents, Micro-Ice-Era (MIE). Named for mammals of the pre-historic era, particularly the infamous Ice Age, the project has been called Ice-Era to avoid potential confusion with a similarly named movie.

Proposed in this project, are several brick built mammals, using only currently existing LEGO parts. The base project is proposing 9 different species, though the updates will include other potential expansions, as well as, requests made by supporters.

Deinotherium: Looking much like modern day elephants, Deinotherium had a pair of tusks protruding from its lower lip, rather than the upper jaw. This model contains roughly 33 pieces, and 9 points of articulation.

Dire Wolf (Canis Dirus): A now extinct relative of the modern day wolf (Canis Lupis), the Dire Wolf is slightly larger then its present cousin. The model is composed of roughly 23 pieces and has 10 points of articulation.

Glyptodon: A large, armadillo like mammal, the Glyptodon is one of the more unique looking creatures from the ancient era. This model contains roughly 22 pieces, and 9 points of articulation.

Mammoth: One of the more well known creatures from this era, the Mammoth looks much like a hairy elephant. Contains roughly 32 pieces and 8 points of articulation.

Megaloceros: A now extinct species of deer, the Megaloceros feature a unique rack of horns, which could grow quite large compared with modern day deer. This model contains roughly 37 pieces and 8 points of articulation

Megatherium: One of the largest land mammals ever found, the Megatherium was a giant land sloth. This model features 24 pieces and 8 points of articulation.

What is LEGO Ideas?

LEGO Ideas is a website where anyone over age 13 can post ideas and models they think will make good LEGO sets. Likewise, they can vote on any project, and upon a project's reaching 10,000 votes (supports), it will enter a review stage. If it passes that stage, the proposed model will be sold as an official LEGO set, all over the world.

Membership is free, and only takes a few moments. After that, one can create, support and comment on their own and other projects. Supporting is easy and could potentially help in the creation of an official LEGO set.
