I know it's fun to chat about what themes you'd like to see in the future, but that's not what this request is about. As I understand it they want to know what sets AFOLs like; they do not intend to rerelease any of these sets, but they want to know, in general terms, what are the key characteristics that AFOLs like in sets, so they can better tune future 'Direct' sets to what we want to buy. The idea is they will look at what we identify as our fave sets & try to pull out some common characteristics (e.g. 'novel building techniques', 'excessive modelling detail', 'unusual colours', 'challenging build', 'interactive features', etc.) and they will then use this to guide development of future 'Direct' sets.
My first set and a great one!
I know they're telling us to exclude monorail, but I just don't accept that there are legitimate reasons for doing this, and it's far and away the best theme/ set ever.
Since I like mecha, I'll add realistic articulations. 5764 would've looked better if it had more joints IMO.
I'd want to see more 'robot/mecha' styled themes. Which can spawn off more combat, military vehicles in the line for great mecha/military battles.
Hospital line (which sounds like it is coming back), an actual Modular hospital or Bank (since people all said the other things Id suggest)
2. Modular building series
3. Western theme and the current Pharaoh Quest line
I am hoping there are a few more out there that liked the Santa Fe Super Chief (10020) and the coaches for it.
Well, my favorite theme has always been town/city, especially the location based sets. I just really enjoy that "slice of life" feel.
I think my favorite would have to be Pizza To Go
I just always really enjoyed the look of that set, and being able to actually "cook" the pizzas in the oven and then place then in the back of the delivery truck was endlessly fun for me as a child. It has to be my most memorable set. I see that it had a re-release in the 2000s so I'm assuming there were many others who enjoyed it as well.
My very very close runner up would be Rockey River Retreat
This, by all rights, should be my top pick, but I think nostalgia has let the Pizzeria prevail haha. Anyway, RRR has everything that I love in a set. It's a "civilian" style location (not rescue, or knights, or any kind of battle or conflict focused theme, just an "everyday life" focus), it has an interesting and unique look to it, has multiple elements and pieces so there is always "something to do" and it features an uncommon place. I love seeing unique locations. What I mean is, there are tons and tons of police and fire sets, but how many mountain cabins? Seeing locations that we don't really ever see really increases my appreciation of those sets.
