This week, in the IOTW (IDEA of The Week) section, we have the pleasure of reviewing the "Community" project by the successful designer @bulldoozer, who this time brings us an idea inspired by the well-known series Community (which by the way, I personally recommend it 😉).
This set, based on Greendale Community College, tries to recall some of the most iconic moments of the series, from epic paintball battles and pillow forts, to fried spaceships in Kentucky and everything in between.
In addition, its designer has gone into great detail with the numerous hidden easter eggs and references to beloved episodes, this set will allow fans to build and relive their favourite moments from the series.
You can hang out with the gang in Group F's study room, try out new costumes in the Dean's office or search for your lost stuff in the ventilation system. Along the way you can storm Fort Hawthorne, jump over fiery lava, avoid a zombie apocalypse or escape your evil doppelgangers from the darkest timeline - the possibilities are endless!
On these adventures you'll be joined by minifigures Jeff, Britta, Annie, Shirley, Pierce, Troy, Abed, Dean Pelton and Chang as they journey through the world's craziest educational institution. Are they all real LEGO minifigures or is this just happening in Abed's mind? No one can know for sure.
Community is a creative, meta-humor comedy series that has been consistently ranked as one of the most inventive and original shows in television history. While it may appear to be a simple comedy set at a community college, it is actually a densely-layered series that subverts expectations of what a sitcom is and can be. Each episode is like a mini-movie that explores and parodies the tropes of pop culture and cinema. Across six seasons and two networks, Community took aim at nearly every kind of story genre -- from Spaghetti Western movies, to zombie thrillers, to claymation Christmas specials, to 8-bit video games, to science-fiction epics about the multiverse.
Community was initially produced by Dan Harmon (of Rick and Morty fame) and the Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame). It starred Joel McHale, Donald Glover, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, Danny Pudi, Ken Jeong, and Chevy Chase.
While the series ended in 2015, the Community’s ever-growing fan base has remained passionate and active online - creating fan art, an annual convention, and even video games. The show has also had a major resurgence in recent years thanks to Netflix. Fans have also been actively campaigning for a Community movie. As of 2022, talks are finally happening for a feature film.
