LEGO's "true intentions" - nominations for a classic set 'make over'



  • HuskerDontHuskerDont Member Posts: 32
    I would like to see 6561 Hot Rod Club re-imagined.

    Also 6380 Emergency Treatment Center so we can finally get a hospital. What better way than with this great set.

    Truck Stop: 6393
    Didn't they technically redo the truck stop with the latest 7642 Garage set?
    1592 is the winner in my book....
    The set had a bit over everything....

    I'm pretty sure I had the Galaxy Explorer when I was young, but my vote would go to 6980 'Galaxy Commander':

    It was massive for me as a little tacker, and if I recall correctly, the back end separated from the front spaceship part and opened up to reveal a command centre. It came with two space buggies! And heaps of 1x1 trans round pieces which were rare and precious.

    I loved that set so much.

    …and, 'Commander' is surely a step up from 'Explorer' :P

    My Vote also goes to another type of old time Locomotive Hobby Set... such as the 396 Thatcher Perksins.... except one from Europe (no cow-catcher on the front).

    They could even use the 397 number (never been used in a Hobby Set)..... ;-)

    Maybe a historic German train.... such as the WERRA BAHN.....

    Hey Guys,
    This is a no brainer now knowing their plan :) any of the following 3 would be perfect!

    6980-1: Galaxy Commander

    487-1: Space Cruiser

    375-2: Yellow Castle

    Any idea on the turnaround time on something like this project of theirs? I was in my dark ages when the Home One Mon Calamari set came about. Wasn't the idea for this set solicited with the LEGO AFOL community? With those familiar with this set, what were the timeframes from solicitation to shelves? What are other examples of sets which were developed based on explicit feedback requests (e.g., not the Factory-esque sets like Hobby Train or Market Street)?

    Please vote for some bigest lego sets in that era :-) .I vote for 5571 Black cat or made some new truck in that size.

    Any idea ...
    Please start a new topic rather than going off-topic here. Cheers :-)

    @Istokg - I think they are limiting the sets to only those that included Minifigures.
  • bluemoosebluemoose Member Posts: 1,716
    If the sets are from the 1970s and did not originally include minifigures, try to imagine that the new version would have minifigures.
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Administrator, Moderator Posts: 5,234
    @Istokg - please imagine Minifigures with your selection. Thanks!

    LOL.... OK guys.... I imagine that there's room for more than 1 minifig in the locomotive train engineer area of the existing 396 Thatcher Perkins.... and I would imagine that THAT is more room than in any 4.5V, 9V or 12V train.... I can also imagine that TLG would be able to "picture if you will...." on any minifigures used for a 397 (or any other set number) for such a purpose... ;-)

    FYI.... several years ago I thought about building this "397" Locomotive in these colors as sort of a companion to the 396... almost like bookends...

    The name WERRABAHN is the famous German historic railway, which followed the Werra River thru Germany's forested "green heart" of Thuringia.

    As a 'City' collector any of the following (or similar) would make me happy. Main Street was one of my favorites when I was young.

    Main Street

    Hot Rod Club

    Hamburger Stand

    Motorcycle Shop

    Post Office

    If I was Lego, I'd have a 'City' sub-theme called 'Main Street' that would be exclusively a variety of commercial and municipal buildings.
  • devilheaddevilhead Member Posts: 286
    This would be a great addition to the Farm sub-theme

    Riding Stable

    A couple of things I am seeing here.. They are not redoing a set brick for brick, correct? It seems like people are thinking that on here. But they are making a set SIMILAR to the set picked, right?

    Post Office
    Nice catch.. completely forgot it has been ages since a Post Office has been created. Was hoping for a Modular of a Post office, but Id take a regular Lego set (although after seeing the Marina, it seems like Lego is 'junior-izing' with their city sets again)

    Thanks everyone ... I'll send these off to LEGO & we'll see what happens :-)
