To mark the 30 year anniversary of Richard Donner's iconic eighties movie The Goonies in 2015, one fan has submitted an idea for a LEGO set to LEGO CuuSoo.

The project, by a user named Lyonsblood, features sets called Fratelli Fracas and Skeleton Scare based on moments from the film.

"In 2015, the Goonies will be 30 years old, so what better time than now to start a Cuusoo campaign to reignite LEGO’s interest in this franchise in time for the celebration" said Lyonsblood.

"With the success of the Back to the Future set, and Ghostbusters equally riding high in the Cuusoo charts, there's definately enough interest in retro movies from the eighties."

"In regards to LEGO’s brand standards, The Goonies very much fits into the ethics that LEGO believes in. It’s fun, exciting and offers many possibilities for expansion. It is also very reminiscent of other existing LEGO licensed products such as Indiana Jones and Harry Potter.

"It also has the added appeal of being a nostalgic setpiece that the older collectors of LEGO will cherish."

The project has passed 1,000 supporters and the LEGO CuuSoo team sent a message of support to the campaign.

"Goonies never say die! And neither do the fans that support this. This project captures the spirit of this cult classic - The 'Goon Docks' friends would be proud," said a statement from LEGO CuuSoo.

"Best of luck as you continue on your treasure hunt to achieving 10,000 supporters. I'm gettin' outta here. I'm... I smell ice cream."

LEGO Back to the Future made it on to shelves via CuuSoo, while projects based on Jurassic Park, Knight Rider, Sherlock, Adventure Time, The Wizard of Oz and Ghostbusters have all graced the site in recent months.
