Lego Ideas-World War Two Planes
I recently built a series of microscale WWII planes that I want to put on Lego Ideas. The sets have one Allied and one Axis plane and average 45 pieces per set. However, I was unsure of wether or not they were good enough or even appropriate to put on Lego Ideas. I know they are against modern warfare, but this was 70 years ago. These would be good sets, because:
- it is the 70th Anniversary of World War 2
- They have great collectible value- there are about ten sets and some of them are meant to be together
- They have great play value
- They have great display value- they look very nice and I could include a stand and/or a minifigure/s to go with the planes
However, you could argue against them that:
- World War Two was not long enough ago
- Having miniature ww2 planes could offend people
- The collectibility factor and the toy factor could be rude to WW2 vets
- One of the planes is really awful
I guess I don't really know what to do. On one hand, it would be really cool to have a 70th anniversary World War Two thing, but on the other hand, tiny, collectible Lego planes maybe aren't the kind of thing that would be good. I don't really know how Denmark fared in WWII, so that would probably be important. I realise Lego wasn't around then, but it could still be a factor. I don't want to offend the greatest company in history!
I was planning to put the pic on top as the cover image for one of the sets on Lego Ideas before I started doubting myself. I don't really want to do the micro figures you see at the bottom anymore.
Please tell me your honest opinion. I want to know about its value as a Lego set series and how offensive it would be or how many Ideas rules it would break.
I can post more pictures if you really need them, but this discussion isn't meant to be about the MOCs. I can start another discussion later for that.
