Congratulations Sheepo

Congratulations Sheepo (Fernando Benavides) dor the 10.000 suporters!
This is indeed a great achievement and you managed to get the first Technic model hitting the LEGO CUUSOO official review phase. Just in time for the next Spring review.

It was like last minute rush and as it seems that Land Rover itself made a great job pushing their own fan community to make this happen.
I'd say it seems Land Rover would be happy to negotiate a license with TLG to assure the Defender will pass the review phase, but I'm not so sure about the same intent on TLG side, if we take a look from the outcome of the last review.
This model is huge, has lots of expensive parts like PF motors and so on... It will also depend on how much the average supporter told he would be willing to pay for such model. One possibility could be to consider a major shrink to the model itself, but this is also something we never saw to happen to models in previous reviews (ok, most of them were not that large, but we will probably have a glimpse when we get to know the results from the ongoing review to the UCS Sandcrawler).

If you cannot stand the wait, you can always buy the building instructions online from Sheepo website and build it yourself (after having collected all the required elements...).

Or get prepared for an huge wait till we get to know the LEGO review results, on this!

if they're smart the make it an exclusif set so they would not have to shrimp the model (somthing like the 10221)

I really hope they make a set out of this. Then at least, something challenging will come out of the cuusoo thing :/
