This striking design for a Lego Leica M6 rangefinder camera has passed the crucial 100-vote milestone in under 60 days, meaning it is perhaps on its way to becoming a real Lego set you can buy in stores.

The significance of reaching this stage this fast is that Lego award the project a full year on the Lego Ideas site (a sort of Kickstarter for Lego set ideas), enough time to attract the necessary 1,000 supporters for the idea to become reality. Lego uses this approach to make sure there is enough interest in a design since only a few new sets are made each year, and of course, only a certain percentage are for their adult-targeted products.
