Check out these Studs!

Brandon Griffith, who you may remember from his role in the awesome Tower of Orthanc diorama, has a cool new project up on Kickstarter. It’s a set of trading cards, but the subjects aren’t athletes, they’re LEGO builders and their creations. The mock-up photos look pretty awesome to me, and I’m also honored to say that I’ve been asked to be an artist in the series.

LEGO Studs trading cards

    Interesting idea.

    I’m no lawyer, but won’t this run into trademark/copyright issues? I can see problems with using the LEGO font, and also using images of storm troopers, Link, etc. in a commercial product.

    This is pretty niche. I mean I’m a huge fan and I love to get to know more about the amazing builders internationally and see their works but honestly I don’t think I’d buy this. I’d certainly be more motivated to build knowing I may get a trading card with one of my constructions but I don’t know that I’d ever buy one.

    This is one of those fun ideas in a “What if..” but a horrible idea to put into fruition and ask for investments on. Who’s going to buy these? I doubt the demand is out there, and profit to be made. I think you’d have better luck with a website of featured builders with free access or “virtual” trading cards.
