After 69 years in business, the LEGO company is bigger than ever generating over $40 billion annually. One reason for their continued success is to always have new model ideas and the next release could be one designed in Upstate New York.

According to NYup.com, there is a family from Marcellus that created an original LEGO model in honor of the 75th anniversary of the classic Christmas movie, "It's A Wonderful Life". Their design is such a hit, the company is now considering it for an official LEGO set.

The journey from creation to submission to Fan Designer took Jason Middaugh and his daughter Jane several months. Along the way their model gathered the required 10,000 supporters to be examined by a LEGO Design Expert and considered for production.
