Company Update: 2018 Urban Planner LEGO Minifigure Released

Back when I was in graduate school at the University of Michigan, I spent a fair amount of time at the Zell Lurie Institute. Adorning the walls were several of Sam Zell’s Automata (moving, mechanical music box sculptures with customized lyrics), which are the annual gifts that he has been sending to friends, colleagues and business associates based on “where [his] head is at” that year.

As I was going through the process of re-booting Simchik Planning & Development, I wanted to do something similar for my clients, but I did not know what. As I am sure many of you know, it is difficult to sometimes get creative with tchotchkes and they can be quite expensive unless you buy in bulk, which can be tough if you are just getting up and running again.

After several fits and starts, I discovered As many of you may know, I have been a LEGO Maniac since I was a kid, so once I found this, it was clear that Everything Is AWESOME!!! I decided to start with an urban planner for 2018 and every subsequent year I will be creating a new custom LEGO minifigure representing a different profession in the real estate industry. So, without further delay, here is the description of the 2018 Urban Planner:

When a public meeting calls, there is always the need for descriptive maps. The Urban Planner is ready to present to stakeholders and foster consensus at a moment’s notice. However, in the rush to prepare, he must not forget to properly label his map for fear that his former professors will notice.

Awesome features include:

The Urban Planner comes with a stylish button-down shirt, a parcel map ready to present during the public meeting and two expressions depending on the outcome!

Looking forward to planning together in 2018!
