Snowhitie's Brickset Bonusball Bonanza 29/10/2016

snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 3,060
In the grand tradition of BendyBadger and all the other volunteers during his study-holiday, I'm honoured to host this weeks Bonusball Bonanza.

I had a look and it seems there are still 1353 people who want this set so, this weeks prize is:#75032: X-Wing Fighter.

I'm sure you are all familiar with the concept, but for those newbies out there, the first 59 people to enter and provide an answer to this week's question are attributed a number (from 1-59 duh) and the number that get's picked in tomorrow's Bonus Ball UK raffle is the one that will win aforementioned prize.

Now, you want a question you say? Okay, here goes, imagine you can live in any Lego-universe you want, past or present, which one would it be and why (please don't ignore the why part that's the most fun). It doesn't have to be your favourite theme, for example my son choose 'Scooby-Doo' since he loves solving mysteries and my husband wants to live in 'City' since if his house is on fire there will be lots of firefighters around.

Good luck all!

    Modular. The only bad thing about it is that everyone would have the same facial expression
  • LuLegoLuLego UKMember Posts: 1,010
    Heart lake city for sure. I'd have a yacht for sure and probably own a hot air balloon and live in a lighthouse.

    Star Wars universe! It would be a galaxy far far away from Lepin :)

    Modular city. As William says, everyone is always happy there!

    There'll be plenty of stores available including a nice private (well yes, 6 seats!) cinema :) I might even get to see those old retired sets in real life then - not likely to happen any time soon in this world.

    Thanks for picking up the bonus ball bonanza :)

    The universe from "The Man Upstairs". There will be order, structure, and everything in its place. But no Kragle required, as no kids allowed anyway!

    And thanks for organising @snowhitie, but whilst we know the universes your family would chose, you did not disclose your choice ;)

    I have two!

    1. Classic Space: Exploring the vast universe in a cool black suit without a visor and with a broken chinstrap in my slick spacecraft with lovely blue colors! 

    2. Classic Castle: Definitely in a castle with a spook and trying to hoard goldchests from those rich kings. Oh and also having a grey parrot is just tha bomb!

    hmm I would go for nexo knights (knigthon), and why not.. flying around on a robot horse. being a knight!! 
  • jmeninnojmeninno The Batcave (MA)Member Posts: 1,043
    DC Superheroes, in particular the Batman theme.  Why?  Because Batman's the best and his villains are the most interesting!
  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman UKMember Posts: 1,525
    Space - Ride that monorail.
  • eggsheneggshen Middleton, WIMember Posts: 590
    Monster Fighters, who didn't grow up watching Monster Squad and wanting to kick Wolfman in the nards? Just me? Ok....
  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 3,153
    Lego Movie, just got back from my Mexican holiday today (been up 22 hours thanks to the time difference and not sleeping on the plane, trying to go to bed at a normal time later) so i'd have to be the minifig with the Sombrero, the poncho and a big pile of Mexican cheese. I did have a bit of Mexican cheese, had far more Dos Equis beer and Margaritas (the only paletable way to take tequila).
  • diddypididdypi USAMember Posts: 25
    Classic castle theme - set right next to the Ewok village.  That way I get to ride my horse through the woods!
  • blade_guyblade_guy ManchesterMember Posts: 218
    Fabuland because everyone is insanely happy and everything is fabulously colourful. Also, everyone is employed and has a purpose in life. Plus they drive cool red scooters.
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFW/BGMember Posts: 7,296
    Either Forestmen- Wolfpack era Castle. Elves is a close runner up for having dragon pets.
  • SithLord196SithLord196 Member Posts: 1,161
    Probably The Lego Movie so I could visit all the different universes, or Dimensions for the same reason.

    I guess that's cheating a bit, but being able to travel between them all would be pretty cool.
  • asrfarinhaasrfarinha Galway, IrelandMember Posts: 140
    Nexo Knights! A medieval theme that kind looks high-tech, plus magic!
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu AustraliaMember Posts: 2,318
    Marvel Superheroes with the hope I too could become a Lego Superhero, that or convince Stark to let me use one of his old armours.
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 496
    The Creator series of homes, they look so cozy. Of course I would have to invest in furniture and flooring since the lawns extend into the homes.
  • TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 1,708
    Ninjago because dragons.

    Or Classic Space because I wanted to live there when I was 10.
  • MattDawsonMattDawson Solihull, UKMember Posts: 1,374
    Town! Everything is simpler than the city life... plus we have a monorail!
  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    Paradisa since it is always warm and sunny there.  Enjoying the rain here, very much today, but, as a fantasy....
  • alldarkeralldarker NetherlandsMember Posts: 225
    Easy: Adventurers! A great Indiana Jones 'rip-off' which was still very fresh with great sets and atmosphere.

    Friends.  Nothin' but 'dolls'.

    Well, mostly.  :)
  • dspigeldspigel Newport NewsMember Posts: 461
    I'd pick the Star Wars universe as well. Traveling space and meeting new civilizations would be awesome. Plus I like to think I could have been a Jedi.
  • iso3200iso3200 97 miles from Brickset TowersMember Posts: 2,063
    The Lego Movie. Because you don't have to be a master builder to bring a creative and cool idea to life. That couch makes sense to me :-)
  • magrimagri UKMember Posts: 157
    Classic Pirates! I live to live dangerously!
  • ScarraScarra LondonMember Posts: 139
    Star Wars.  Because mind tricks don't work on me. 
  • wagnerml2wagnerml2 Belleville, IllinoisMember Posts: 1,376
    Classic SPace!  By far the most playable in my opinion and a reminder of the countless hours I spent as as a kid imagining an entire universe!
  • bandit778bandit778 Docking Bay 94. Member Posts: 2,335
    It would have to be Star Wars, I'd get to own a Lightsaber and being a clumsy git (my wife's words not mine), if i cut of one of my limbs with it i could just replace it. The added bonus is I would be in the 1 place that was guaranteed to have a UCS Falcon. I'd just have to brush up on my sabacc skills to win it.
  • Coolguy5000Coolguy5000 Ireland Member Posts: 1,570
    Marvel superheroes quite fitting as I just watched Dr. Strange
  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    Fabuland. As for why...uh, why not? In that world, I'd imagine we'd be the pets. Any pet I've had has had a pretty nice, play, sleep, repeat. 
  • LobotLobot UKMember Posts: 1,016

    Star Wars... and specifically Cloud City! 

    I always liked the idea of being a cyborg, hence my Avatar

    Harry Potter. There'd be magic, dragons, and if it all got a bit much I could just live as a muggle and put up with doing things the mundane way! :D
  • ricecakericecake Maryland, USAMember Posts: 879
    I've never watched any of the show, but I would say Ninjago if there was a possibility I could pilot a giant mech.
  • DawnDawn GoldMember Posts: 247
    Scala, It is Halloween, so I want to be surrounded by the creepy babies ...
  • paul_mertonpaul_merton UKMember Posts: 2,967
    I'd like to live in the classic castle era, partly because it takes me back to my youth and, well, who wouldn't want to be able to sit inside a horse and throw spears at things? Also, castles are awesome.

    My only disappointment would be that sausages wouldn't have been invented yet.
  • toftof Member Posts: 147
    Lord of the rings because I I am a nerd!
  • joel4motionjoel4motion United KingdomMember Posts: 959
    I like to get about a bit so ill say Dimensions... Thanks @snowhitie for running it this week
  • SirBenSirBen In the Hall of the Mountain KingMember Posts: 589
    Heart Lake City, it looks so friendly and colorful.
  • woony2woony2 UKMember Posts: 336
    Original Classic Space for me, as I wouldn't have to think about what to wear each day. Red or white space suit, simples
  • MrJ_NYMrJ_NY A flick missle away from Brickagara FallsMember Posts: 592
    Minecraft - an endless supply of building materials plus you get to kill monsters/zombies
  • BobflipBobflip Member Posts: 668
    Time Cruisers, because living there would probably be as ridiculous as the sets themselves. 
  • Renegade007cjhRenegade007cjh Essex, UKMember Posts: 694
    Good question!!

    Classic Castle for me.  I started with City and Space when I was very young, but soon moved onto all things medieval!  Ah, to live in *the* Yellow Castle!!!

    Thanks for hosting this week @snowhitie ; I'm a little jealous that all draws after mine (and @joel4motion ) got to put their own names in the title, whilst we honoured the Badger (well, I tried to if it wasn't for bloody auto-correct!!! :)

    Good luck everyone!
  • SeijiAmasawaSeijiAmasawa USMember Posts: 257
    Town so that I can visit my favorite set from when I was a kid, #6372 Town House.
  • PoMoPinkPoMoPink UKMember Posts: 275
    The Lego Movie one so Unikitty will be my friend #awesome
  • ZeeEssBSZeeEssBS Member Posts: 35
    adventurers, because i am in to history.
  • donutboydonutboy U.K.Member Posts: 763
    I wanna live in a crater baseplate from classic space.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 2,267
    Classic Town all the way.
  • jon11380jon11380 25 minutes from the LEGO Shop MKMember Posts: 56
    M-TRON, I loved the colours of black, red, and neon green.
  • janscjansc The Netherlands Member Posts: 60
    Classic space. To boldly go ... In Red, White, yellow or Blue spacesuit.
