Thanks to Anonymous Tipster for the heads up.

Am I the only one who's bugged by the constant lies they keep giving?
"However, I can tell you that an official announcement will occur in a matter of weeks, not months, and we’ll update you on the exact timeframe when we know ourselves."
"The results should be in within the next several weeks, watch this space for updates!"
That first one was posted in August.

I thought the Portal one was disqualified due to subject matter. Glad to see I was misremembering. I'm not sure I'd be able to resist a decent Portal LEGO set, even at the likely higher pricepoint.

It was. Initially. They reconsidered. Still not guaranteed and I still think it's unlikely, but they're not just curb-stomping it outright anymore.

LEGOlas: I don't know if I'd call those lies, things happen a lot behind the scenes and remember that this whole project is still in the beta stage. It was probably accurate at the time and never got revised when things changed.

Ah, OK. So my memory isn't as bad as I feared. Yeah, I'm not holding my breath, either, but it is kind of nice that it hasn't been summarily dismissed anymore.

When we saw the Lego CUUSOO ambassadors at BrickCon they said that licenses, although they pose a little more technicality are not ruled out just because it's a license. Here's fingers crossed for the B2theFuture!

I know I wouldn't be able to resist a Portal set. Or all of them. I'm glad they're still considering it, but if they do go for it I'm going to be in serious trouble. I can see all of my buyer's willpower going straight out the window--er, aperture. :shock:
When I'm not playing or being artsy, I work on sites like www.vincentmartella.com and IPO Boutique. In other words, I never stop playing or being artsy!

Yeah, that's true. But since it's in flux, they shouldn't give out estimates as promises.

Where did they promise anything? I don't follow the Cuusoo blog, I just have the quotes you gave to go by and they seemed pretty nebulous.
