But 'Hell Yeah' to the super seven!
Story here for people like me who don't like video:
oh, the Adventure Time set is cool too I guess. Still, CATERHAM
YES! Caterham! I can't wait for this set. Much like the VW Camper Van, I'll be modding 1 or 2 with colour variants.
As for Adventure Time, not interested at all.
It is nice to see classic car models, and Adventure Time will fly off the shelves.
i then also have to pick up the VW Camper Van and The Mini.
The Sports Car who name start with a F. to me is not part of the same theme.
i call that sports car a modern car, ware as the VW and Mini are classic cars.
Adventure Time will be down to Price of set. Size of set, parts used in set,
and lastly the final image.
if all them line up then i will get the set, if not, i let that one pass me by.
@CM4S - ok I'll bite. What's the other thing? :-)
Will non-AFOL car fans buy into lego cars because of it or do they go to existing AFOL car fans (there are enough existing car sets already, so lego probably know the answer).
As for any kids TV show (I assume that is what it is), would parents buy into this at lego prices? There doesn't seem to be much play value aside from building the characters. What do they do? Like many kids shows, no doubt there are already loads of existing molded plastic toys that will be much cheaper for kids to play with and chuck when they are bored with them.
3 Dimensions packs!
I don't doubt the Caterham Super Seven is probably popular with classic car buffs, especially British classic car buffs. Me, I've never even heard of it before now. It's a great model though, with a lot of old-timey charm, and should translate well to a LEGO set.
No idea whether I'll get either of these sets. It probably depends both on what the final designs look like and whether I get into Adventure Time between now and the set's release. I've been wanting to for a long time, I just keep putting it off.
the VW and Mini, are £79.99 and £74.99.
and the VW is old. it's been a round a long time.
so both Parisian Restaurant and Detective's Office are getting pushed back.
Detective's Office is getting pushed so far back that i don't yet have a place for it in the plan i done up to this point.
but its not all bad news. the revised plan, see's me getting 2 set's that i had not plan to get for 2 months yet. and the VW and Mini, both set's that i have been looking at for some time, both set's that just need a small little push for me to decide to get them. and after seeing how long the VW been around fore made up my mind for me. i did not know it was that OLD! also bonus, it looks like i can save some of my VIP point's that in my old plan would have been used.
so i will be getting the Caterham set, not day 1, but it higher on my list then TBBT set is. and i love that show it just that the set is lacking. what is it lacking? i cannot put that in to words. it just is.
then again my plan is ever changing.
Hurry up and find out what the Minifigures D2C is! :-)
I'm not sure on Adventure Time.
I feel like their intention was to make the F7A Hornet, but couldn't work out a licensing agreement that was satisfactory.
If you can't really drive, it's cold, noisy and uncomfortable. And probably terrifying.
You can even buy it in kit form, assuming you're into building things from a pile of parts of course ;-)
The other one I have almost no idea about.
Plus I'm feeling that the Toyota Landcruiser will win the next round of Ideas also. Back to back cars is going to be awesome, considering how few we've had over the years so far.
(Meh on Adventuretime. Unless it has a brick that makes farting sounds. The auto looks nice - I hope it's a positive omen for the Landcruiser.)
Decision regarding Star Citizen F7A Hornet
For the last two review periods, we’ve carried forward the Star Citizen F7A Hornet by nosmigon project for review. Unfortunately we’ve decided not to consider the project further.
As as for the cars, I have no interest in it, but I'm sure this will appeal to car enthusiasts. IMO, excellent selections this time around! I'm hoping they choose the Apollo 11 project next time.
Here Here - for sure I hope??
Perhaps if for the Ghostbusters they used printed trophy-style microfigs like in the Helicarrier set, they could create a Mr. Stay-Puft scaled to them. A Mr. Stay-Puft accurately scaled to those figures would be maybe around 28 modules tall, judging from the "minifigure scale" Brent Waller cited in his Stay-Puft project. That's about the height of a $15–20 Bionicle figure, although the figure's weight would still be a concern — Bionicle figures obviously tend to be much thinner than Mr. Stay-Puft! If you were willing to settle for half-scale like Brent did, you could even use a build similar to Giant Man from this year's LEGO Super Heroes sets.
