2 years ago I have submitted a very simple LEGO Ideas project called a UFO Cow Abduction. It has expired with 3,271 votes out of 10,000 required, and with many supporters commenting that while they liked the idea, they found the execution somewhat lacking. I felt they were right and I’ve been meaning to have another, more polished go at it for a while, but I only got around to doing it after coming up with an idea of a rotating base for the UFO.

Just like the 2021 version, the project centers around a cow being abducted by UFO, with the cow tethered on a chain and held up in the air using LEGO magnets – one attached to the cow, the other attached to the UFO. This time the base is larger, the UFO is much more detailed and smoother, and it’s supported using trans-clear liftarms that can rotate around the base as you spin the knob on the base’s side, effectively making the UFO rotate above the cow.
