We started an idea to create nouns collectibles merchandise IRL - Nouns Blocks because both Nouns & Legos are very iconic plus we are a huge fan of Legos! ( and of course Nouns too ). We were formerly one of the runner-ups for Nouns Prop House and received a small funding to kickstart our project. We have successfully built a Shark Noun Lego as our first prototype exploration ( Phase 1 ). Nouns Blocks Full Presentation
To produce all 234 Nouns head traits in 3 phases.
Phase 1 - 1 Noun Head Lego ( Executed )
Phase 2 - 6 Noun Head Legos ( Current )
Phase 3 - 227 Noun Head Legos ( After Phase 2 Completed )
- Everyone can build their own nouns collectibles especially Nouns hardcore fans and Lego lovers!
- Everyone should have these at least one on their shelves!
1. Current Plan
- In Phase 2, we will create 6 types of Nouns Head Legos merch.
- Prototypes to be built. Once it is finalized with QC, we will proceed with the merch.
- Each of the merch will consist a full package of loose bricks, a manual booklet and other miscellaneous.
- To design and manufacture the packaging & marketing stuffs.
( Due to the colour limitations of Lego bricks, it would only be possible to select certain nouns heads as for now. But we believe everything is possible! )
2. Future Plan
- Once Phase 2 is completed, we will proceed with Phase 3.
- For Phase 3, we are planning to go on-chain proposals…
- Before proceeding with Phase 3, we will require feedbacks and opinions from Nounders, Nouners & Nounish communities.
- We could also propose to build other nounish communities traits such as Lost Nouns, The Boneys, Noadz and etc ( Collaborations? ). To the fullest extent possible!
- If Phase 3 is getting an approval from the DAO, we might want to start creating our own bricks!
Prototypes & Merch Test including packaging etc ( 12 heads, 1 head = 0.15 - 0.2 eth ) : 2.0-2.4 ETH
Labor Costs & Marketing Stuffs ( including any hidden costs ) : 1 ETH
We are requesting 3 ETH to be funded in two tranches by Small Grants for Phase 2 of our project.
- First Tranches - 2 ETH – Prototyping, Merch, Full Packaging, Labour costs.
- Second Tranches - 1 ETH – Same as above. To be funded upon successful delivery of Phase 2.
