Negative.

The coolness factor was the marriage of LEGO and Eve, not possessing a blocky plastic model of a Rifter.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

i was thinking more used coke cans turned into a rifter... that way it keeps the rust feeling...

When you creat something like this don't you have to buid it using there software. If so can the person who designed it not give out the instructions to build it, then whoever wants one can just buy the bricks to make it?

Mega Blocks would be cool - not quite LEGO but they've already done HALO stuff

Just go with a Rifter Erector Set instead - pre rusted.

Um, just FYI for everybody, if the Rifter recipe is available somewhere, you can buy all the ingredients on BrickLink.

Eve vs. Back to the Future? We never had a chance.

How disappointing. I was looking forward to a Lego Rifter as well. Yes, it is larger, has more pieces, and most likely more expensive, but at least it looked cooler than the tiny Deloreon.

Also, look at it this way. Back to the Future is old, outdated. Really will only appeal to older people (30s or so). Most of them don't play with Legos anymore. Eve it at least current, and would most likely appeal to the younger audience that DOES play with Legos still.

Lets look on the bright side...with the lego rifter being shot down...it opens doors for a lego New Megathron or New Vargur....hint hint wink wink.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Lego Orca for the win!! There is already an awesome looking paper one done recently by an Eve player. Many props to him.
