Grab your coffee and take a seat! We’ve got some awesome Gilmore Girls fandom news that you’re going to want to hear. Finally, someone has requested that a Gilmore Girls LEGO set be developed and we could not agree more! We have no idea how it took so long for this idea to become a thing but, low and behold, it is now officially a thing and, it’s time for us to come together, as one virtual presence, make this happen! Of all the proposed LEGO ideas that we’ve seen across the internet, this idea is the one that’s made us shout, “TAKE OUR MONEY, NOW!!!”
In case you didn’t know, LEGO actually allows users to submit ideas for new LEGO sets which fandoms want to see developed into actual toys. Anyone can submit an proposal through the LEGO Ideas website. Submissions then gather votes and support for their ideas and then, perhaps, LEGO will actually make your idea into a real thing if you can reach 10,000 votes of support.
At the end of April, user Rainer Zufall submitted his idea for this collection, and it’s an absolute “must have” in any Gilmore Girls fan’s collection. The submission is for a tiny, lego version of none other than Luke’s Diner and it’s absolute perfection.
The reason behind Zufall’s Stars Hollow mock-up is ridiculously adorable and makes us love this whole idea even more:
“The Idea of building Luke’s Diner came to me, because my wife is a really big Gilmore Girls fan and she asked me to build Luke’s Diner for her. So, since I am a big Lego fan I was glad to do this for her and – here it is :)”
The set includes our favorites: a Lego Lorelai, Luke, Rory, Jess, Lane (in her Luke’s Diner’s outfit) and, last but not least, Kirk. As Hellogiggles points out, the attention to detail in Luke’s is totally spot on, right down to the NO CELL PHONES sign. Check out the prototype pics from LEGO Ideas below:
Are you as excited about this as we are? Do you need this in your life as much as we do!! If so, show your support! Remember, the LEGO Idea needs to get 10,000 votes before you can actually own your very own Luke’s Diner. You can support the Luke’s Diner set by clicking right HERE.
