This set began as an idea on LEGO Cuusoo, a site where LEGO fans can submit ideas and, if they get enough votes, LEGO will consider making them an official set.

Sadly, the set is on hold, probably because the designer has gotten too many requests to fill. I've waited this long, I suppose I can wait a bit longer.
