Cuusoo of the Week : The Adventures of Steamrod!

In this section we help promote LEGO Cuusoo idea’s to help them reach the 10,000 likes needed for their idea to get created! This week we feature the idea called The Adventures of Steamrod! created by Brickthing. Here’s what the creator had to say about the idea:

Hello and welcome to a new Team Jigsaw CUUSOO project!

Today we’d like to present to you a new mini-theme that many LEGO fans have been hoping to see for years: Steampunk LEGO! Set in an alternate future where steam-powered technology never fell out of use, this project proposes an exciting set packed full of detailed vehicles and minifigures. The set that we are proposing is designed as a one-off tribute to Steampunk and LEGO’s Adventurers characters, so the set is fairly large and includes seven exclusive minifigures.

This set would appeal to Steampunk and LEGO fans alike, because of the creative building techniques and pieces used to construct the greatly varied and colorful vehicles. In addition to many desirable recoloured pieces, there would be a mixture of stickers and printed pieces to enhance the details and realism of the set, allowing the pieces to be useful for Steampunk, historic and general MOCs.

The story behind the characters of this project is similar to that of the Adventurers LEGO theme, except naturally set in a fantasy Steampunk world, with more dramatic vistas and mystical treasures. Each character would have their own quirks and talents, and there is a clear distinction between the forces of good and evil.

Be sure to check out the gallery for additional high-resolution images that give closer looks into the set and its designs, and stay tuned for future updates!

The Magnificent Steamrod!

The centerpiece of the set, the Steamrod train is constructed from over 1500 pieces and uses many creative building techniques to create an exciting Steampunk aesthetic. There would not be any track included, since we thought it would both hinder the play-ability and increase the price of the set. However the Steamrod train is designed to function on and off the track, using proper LEGO train wheels and coupling rods modeled of the fantastic Emerald Night set.

Steamrod is over 25″ (65cm) long, and over 3″ (8cm) wide!
Features hidden flick fire missiles, secret coal car compartment, and a fully detailed engine room inside the locomotive!
The Laboratory Carriage opens to reveal a fully detailed interior, with machine schematics, robots, golden tools, crystals, ancient artifacts and vials of obscure chemicals to keep the Professor occupied.

Attack the train with Lord Sinistree’s Sly-Slizer, fire the flick fire missiles, and steal the ancient Steam-relic! When Lord Sinistree finds himself too preoccupied to do his evil deeds properly, he sends his henchmen, the Slybots, to do the job in his stead!

Features hidden weapons compartment, unfolding landing gear, removable cockpit, and flick fire missiles!
With extended wings, the plane measures 10″ (25cm) long, and 19″ (48cm) wide!
Includes two Slybot minifigures, Pneumatic Slycycle motorbike, gyroscopic Sly-sky helicopter, and much more!

This project also has a large focus on high quality minifigures and accessories. To do this our project is calling for a moderate number of printed and recoloured parts, but no new pieces would be required. Can you spot which sets all of the recoloured pieces originally came from?
