An Australian LEGO fan has submitted an incredibly detailed Will & Grace set to the brick company’s crowdsourcing platform LEGO Ideas, and he needs your vote.
Melbourne marketing manager Mark Fitzpatrick made headlines last year with his RuPaul’s Brick Race design, which scored more than 10,000 votes.
Now Fitzpatrick is back with a new design: a fully furnished LEGO version of Will and Grace’s apartment from the beloved sitcom.
“I enjoyed sharing my last concept so much and received such a warm, genuinely positive reaction from LEGO lovers all over the world, I couldn’t wait to sink my creative chops into another design,” he said.
“I really wanted to create and share another LGBTQI-friendly concept, knowing how important positive, fun representation means to so many in our community.
“I’ve always enjoyed Will & Grace and think a LEGO set based on this globally loved, multi award–winning comedy would make good commercial sense for LEGO and provide hours of building and play fun for fans all around the world.”
Fitzpatrick said the sitcom is an iconic part of LGBTIQ culture.
“At its heart, this sitcom is a celebration of friendship through thick and thin,” he said.
“It values individuality and love, and it helped pave the way for greater mainstream representation of LGBTQI lives.
“All of these qualities inspire me and encouraged me to celebrate it, as it approaches its 10th season, through this project.”
If the proposal gets 10,000 votes it moves on to be reviewed by the LEGO Ideas team. You can vote for Fitzpatrick’s proposed Will & Grace set here, and see more photos below:
