Welcome to Elmore, friend! I hope you enjoy your time here
in our town. There is much to see, so I won't take up too much of your time.
Although the citizens of Elmore may look strange, they are
some of the best people you'll ever meet... well, everyone except for the
Wattersons, that is. They're always causing trouble around here, creating chaos
and damaging property. Try to steer clear of them, if you can.
Wait, what's that? You've come to see the Wattersons? Are
you sure? Well, if you've already made up your mind, I suppose there's no use
in trying to convince you to do otherwise. Do be careful, though! I wouldn't
want you to unknowingly get mixed up in their usual mischief.
Oh, I almost forgot! Before you go, I could use your help
with something. We're trying to secure Elmore a place in the LEGO world, which,
believe it or not, could actually happen with your help! There are two simple
things you can do to help make it happen.
First of all, if you haven't already, please cast your

In addition to voting, I encourage you to share this concept
with your friends on social media. Doing so will really help us out! We want to
make every fan aware of what we're trying to accomplish here!
Can you do those two things for me? Great! I knew I could
count on you!
I really appreciate your help and hope you will enjoy the
rest of your time here, even if a majority of that time will be spent with the
Wattersons! Perhaps some of your ability to make good decisions will rub off on
them. Good luck, friend! I'll see you after your visit.
The Amazing World of Gumball is a hilarious comedy animated
television series that Ben Bocquelet created for Cartoon Network. The show
first aired on May 3, 2011 and ended on June 24, 2019. It follows a 12-year-old
blue cat named Gumball Watterson and his 10-year-old adoptive brother, Darwin,
who is a goldfish with legs. The duo typically finds themselves in interesting
situations as a result of their mischievous behavior around their fictional
city of Elmore, California.
The two main characters are usually joined by their family,
which consists of their younger sister, Anais, their mother, Nicole, and their
father, Richard. The show also includes a large cast of diverse supporting
characters. Many of these background characters are food based, such as a
potato guy, a hotdog guy, or a donut guy, which usually results in some pretty
The show is especially unique in the way that it has an
intentional lack of stylistic unity. Animation, puppetry, CGI, stop-motion, and
live action can all be seen in this show. I think this adds an element of charm
to the show that not many shows have. As a result of the show's unique style
and well planned humor, it has won many awards and gained an impressive
following. The show currently has millions of fans, making it one of the most
popular Cartoon Network shows to this day.
I think the bright colors and unique characters found in
this show would make for an excellent LEGO set. Although there are many young
fans of the show, as most people would expect, there are also many teenagers
and adults who enjoy it, too. From what I've seen, the show appeals to a wide
range of people, as it has elements that draw in people from a bunch of
different audiences. This would, in my opinion, give a LEGO set based on this
show a wide range of potential target markets. I think it could also attract
people who aren't normally LEGO fans and convince them to give the brand a
While the main aspect of this idea is the Wattersons' house,
the idea is supposed to be based on The Amazing World of Gumball as a whole. I
think it would be cool if LEGO eventually produced sets based on many of the
iconic locations seen in Elmore. However, for that to happen, this needs to get
10,000 votes. So if you like Gumball, please consider voting!
As shown in the images above, I tried to create an accurate
version of the Wattersons' house in LEGO form. My hope was that Gumball fans
would like the idea as much as I do! I tried my best to design the set in a way
that would make it great for both play and display purposes. My thought was that
this would make it appeal to a wider age range than most sets.
The set includes two main builds: the Wattersons' house and
their backyard shed. Both have detailed interiors and exteriors, making them
perfect for reenacting scenes from the show! The shed's roof can be removed,
allowing easy access to its interior, which includes a bunch of boxes and
The Wattersons' house is obviously more complex, containing
two floors, a detachable roof, and a displayable baseplate. These can all move
separately, as shown in one of the images above. In addition to the
accessibility that comes from taking off the roof, the main floor can be opened
in two separate places, the front and the side. This makes it really easy to
access every part of the model without needing to reach down through the
ceiling. I think this adds a great deal of playability to the set.
While the floor plan of the Wattersons' house doesn't make
any sense in the show, I tried to keep it as accurate as possible. (It makes
sense until you try to match the inside of the house to the outside of the
house. That's when things start to get weird.)
I do realize that I left out a few rooms, including the
parents' bedroom, the laundry room, and the attic. I found it difficult to
include these rooms while keeping the exterior shape of the house as seen in
the show. I did include the doors to these rooms, but they are achieved by
using stickers. I might decide to revise the house to include these rooms if
this project gets enough votes to make it worth spending the extra time.
As for figures, there are many possibilities. As a minimum,
I think it would make sense for this set to include Gumball, Darwin, Anais,
Nicole, and Richard. However, there are many classic supporting characters that
would be great to get in LEGO form, too!
While I can't suggest any new LEGO elements in this project,
I have drawn some concepts for potential figures that I will include in the
"Updates" tab. I put a lot of thought into how these distinctive
figures could be done, so make sure to check them out! Additionally, if you
have any characters that you would like to see made into LEGO form that I
haven't done yet, please leave a comment. I would love to draw some more figure
concepts and post a few of them in the Updates tab every time a supporter
milestone is reached.
Well, I hope you had an enjoyable time visiting Elmore. Your
presence here has been much appreciated. Hopefully the Wattersons didn't get
you into too much trouble.
Feel free to add your comments and suggestions in the
comments section. As mentioned earlier, please remember to cast your
vote for this concept and share it on social media. We want every fan to
know about this! Hopefully we'll be able to immortalize The Amazing World of
Gumball in the form of an official LEGO set.
Although our time together is coming to an end, I do hope
you'll visit us again. Maybe you could even bring a friend next time!
Have a wonderful day!
