Lego and Android go together like an open-source operating system and an infinitely variable building toy. Lego engineer GLHTurbo agrees, which is why he submitted this 205-piece Bugroid design to the Cuusoo platform, Lego's Kickstarter-like crowdsourced idea farm. Builder submit ideas, participants vote, and the projects that reach enough votes are considered for a retail Lego kit. The Bugdroid model passed the 10,000 vote threshold late Wednesday night.

The Lego corporation reviews 10,000+ vote submissions four times a year, and according to their Cuusoo video, only selects one project to become a reality. The Android mascot set is up against some stiff competition, so it's far from a done deal. This quarter's review will start in March and last for several months, but we should know by fall whether the little green guy made the cut. Licensed projects are acceptable by the Lego Cuusoo guidelines, but Google would need to sign off on any toys sold. Something tells me they'd be OK with it.

And by the way, if you're a dedicated Lego fan, you won't have to wait for the suits to make a decision. GLHTurbo has promised to post the full build instructions in the near future.
