I actually cheated a bit and made extra accounts in the name of my girlfriend and a few relatives for more votes.

Many congratulations to SpacySmoke and the 10,000 supporters of his proposed Sega Classic Arcade Machines set, which will now be formally reviewed by Lego for potential release as an official product!

Featuring plastic brick models of the iconic Space Harrier, Out Run, Hang-On and Thunder Blade cabinets, along with minifigures of legendary developer Yu Suzuki and Shenmue's leading arcade fanatic Ryo Hazuki, the proposed set has attracted attention from retro gamers and Lego enthusiasts alike, reaching the required level of support over two and a half weeks before the deadline.

While it's far from guaranteed that the set will be approved for release, an incredible statement has been made about the passion that exists for Sega's classic IPs and the man who brought so many of them to life. To see both Yu Suzuki and his most celebrated creation Ryo Hazuki immortalized in Lego form as part of this set would be amazing, and by making yourselves heard, you've turned that idea into a real possibility.

You've played your part and done Suzuki's legacy proud, and for that we thank you.
