@drdavewatford: Move or edit?
So much so I also did an Iron Giant about ten years ago and have wanted to update it for a long time. Most of the parts are available in light bluish grey now and when I did it they were only made in dark bluish grey.
For anyone that wants them, the instructions are here, apologies for quality, there weren't the resources to produce slick instructions back then either. I also now know that some of the stuff I did is frowned upon, so please don't tell me off for the logo usages and box mock-up.
Sorry to hijack your thread too Brett.
Reading your first post I'd assumed you had already bought it and were trying to generate the parts list. Your second post suggests your in the same boat as I am: You don't want to part with any cash until you've checked how much the parts cost.
I was watching the trailer and couldn't help but see the potential because of the following points:
The iron giant features in the film so possibly that is why it has been passed on by the Ideas review team.
Warner brothers are releasing the film.
The Delorean could get another release as this has been a popular set after retiring. The film could tie in to Dimensions nicely as both have a lot of 80s pop culture.
There could be releases from TV/Film with a strong cult following that may not have the fanbase to warrant an individual IP such as Akira.
The giant scorpion, A-Team van, monster truck all have potential to be sets.
Is KITT in the trailer? That could be another set.
The violence in the film appears to be only in the virtual world.
Seems like a perfect chance for a theme that would allow a lot of fan pleasing releases.
