    Wow. Sounds like they are aware and interested in this. Cracking job. I wish you the best and may have to buy my first lego set after a 3 decade break from the small blocks of wonder.

    Thank you guys for the feedback.. and for your support!

    I wanted to share with you an update on the project... I would like to introduce to you the Winchester 2.0!


    The Winchester 2.0 by Yatkuu, on Flickr

    Not much has changed on the outside… but it’s in the inside that we have some very cool new cool features.
    The first version of the build only had a detailed ground floor… actually it did not even have a wall on the side in order to simplify the photography.


    Winchester 2.0 - Floors breakdown by Yatkuu, on Flickr

    This new version is now a fully modular house with a detailed interior on every floor. As with any other LEGO modular, the floors can each be removed to allow an easy access and playability.

    The third floor features a bedroom and a complete bathroom; on the second floor we have a kitchen and a dining room and on the ground floor we have the tavern that has been slightly modified to accommodate the staircase to the upper floors. The build now also has a backdoor. I'm sure the fans of the movie will appreciate some funny details like the fuse box in the staircase.

    You can check some close-ups of every floor on the website "Makethewinchester".



    To the Winchester!

    Tis a work of art



    I know it would take it away from standard Lego, but would be interesting to see lighting (eg: artifexcreation or lifelites) added to it. eg: Working street light(s) and interior lights.
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives.

    No jukebox/slot machine inside! And a different floor plan?!! You besmirch the good name of Shaun Of the Dead Lego!

    Outside is very cool and in good remembrance to the pub that is now closed

    ^Thanks for the feedback guys!

    For those of you who are not aware of this Simon was invited in the Conan O'Brien show last Tuesday, you may catch the video here.
    So yeah, Ladies and Gentleman... this is Simon Pegg, on Conan, talking about my Winchester in LEGO! Can someone please slap me in the face to wake me up?

    Needless to say that the project has been caught in a tweet / blog storm since then!
    The CUUSOO project page was viewed over 100k times in the past 48 hours and the supporter count is exploding!
    We are currently ranked #1 on the website with a total of 7466 supporters as I am typing this!
    We need 10k and LEGO will consider making it a real official set! We are almost there, please spread the word to your friends, every vote count, it's free, it will only take you a minute!
    Go vote here!

    For all the Shaun of the Dead fans I also have an exclusive piece of info... on makethewinchester.com we publish today an interview of a Zombie who was in the movie, check it out, it's pure gold!

    Very cool that the project is getting a lot of support and best of luck! . As for Tim...well he was nice enough on set I suppose, if a bit sarcastic to me and some other people

    I have wondered why no one had mentioned the cut stuff from the bar scene before, the guy who complained all the time was not happy with anything even when picked for the featured fight scene (which I think most people were glad to see him get smacked with a bottle) , unfortunetly for budgetary (and time reasons I think) they also cut out another effect/stunt scene involving a pizza delivery man zombie in the bar.

    Funnily enough I was on Simon Pegg's blog today and watched that Conan appearance and saw about this on there - had a look and they've got their required 10,000 supporters - sweet!
