The Goonies 30th Anniversary – The Inferno Campaign
This project needs your support! Up for grabs is an awesome Goonies Pirate ship! Lego Ideas (formally Lego Cuuaoo) has responded twice as the project has over 5500 supporters. This could become a reality if and only if we rally behind it! Support this project so we can get our Goonies on!
The Goonies is one of the most iconic movies of the 1980’s. It gave us adventure, pirates, mobsters, the loveable Sloth and of course, the Truffle Shuffle! It was an action packed movie told through the eyes of children.
Even now, The Goonies is very much represented in modern popular culture. T-Shirts, Badges and other apparel are all available everywhere and as a franchise it is still very popular, especially to those who were young when it came out, as it is a movie very close to a lot of people’s hearts.
In 2015, the Goonies will be 30 years old, so what better time than now to start a Cuusoo campaign to reignite Lego’s interest in this franchise in time for the celberation? With the success of the Back to the Future set, and Ghostbusters in review with Cuusoo, there’s definately enough interest in retro movies from the 80’s to warrent this.
My campaign offers up all our favourite characters in Mini-Figure form, as well as concepts for several interconnecting sets, which will help kids (and adults) to re-enact the story from start to finish. The other sets will appear in different campaigns.
In regards to Lego’s brand standards,The Goonies very much fits into the ethics that Lego believe in. It’s fun, exciting and offers many possibilities for expansion. It is also very reminiscent of other existing Lego licensed products such as Indiana Jones and Harry Potter, and just like everyone’s favourite wizard. Everything is centred on children as the main protagonists. It also has the added appeal of being a nostalgic setpiece that the older collectors of Lego will cherish.
