For this project, I propose that a set be made based on the 1999 Warner Brothers hit animated film The Iron Giant. Known for its beautiful storytelling and masterful animation, this movie is beloved by fans old and young all over the world. I believe that a LEGO product based in this film would not just be popular with consumers, but rather be an enormous success.
Within this project, there would be 5 main characters: The Iron Giant with changeable eyes and weaponry to depict his evil state from the movie, Hogarth Hughes with the alien bolt he finds at the end of the film, Annie Hughes and a coffee pot, Kent Mansley and a fedora, and Dean McCoppin with a coffee cup. The entire build consists of approximately 2,023 pieces, including the Giant, minifigures, and accessories. The Giant’s head rotates and tilts, and his arms, legs, wrists, hips, and ankles are all articulated to both accommodate his size and weight, and allow him to replicate classic poses from the movie… More at LEGO Ideas.
It’s just an idea at present, but my son and I would love to see this come to life. It may look like merely a long cartoon film, but it is one of the best films I have ever seen and it is emotional in ways many big budget blockbusters could never manage.
