Missing the old Lego Idea Books - Will there ever be another?
I can't tell you how many hours I spent as a kid paging through the lego idea book http://www.brickset.com/detail/?set=6000-1
I still have my original one with all the stickers. It was an awesome book and had hours and hours of building ideas. Lego had a few others as well in the 80's, but 6000 was my favorite.
I recently picked up the new DK Idea book which is very well done, but pales in comparison to the old 6000. I was explaining to my son how awesome the old books were and went diving into the archives to pull out my copy. He loved it.
It got me thinking, with all the new building techniques and new pieces that have been introduced in the past 10 years, wouldn't it be great to see lego come out with a new Idea Book? I for one would love to see it! Anyone else have a favorite idea book or wish Lego would take another swing at it?

6000 was incredible and I vividly remember the journey the couple went on. It was so beautifully done. What sticks out for me is the dreamlike feeling evoked by the lighting. There was one page in particular of a roadside diner and possibly a drive-in?
When I was in Grad-school I saw an exhibition by an amazing artist named Rachel Whiteread who composed a really cool installation with lighting that now inhabits the same corner of my subconcious as the 6000 Idea Book: http://representingplace.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/placevillage-rachel-whiteread.jpg
I would love to one day try to add LED's to the modulars.
The photos really brought things to life and I've really been wanting to go through my mom's attic to look for it. As I've recently entered into a new phase building with my son, my mind has often thought of this book. Thanks for the reminder!
Then again, isn't that what Brickshelf is for?
Even so, an Idea Book from TLG would be a nice insight into the minds of the designers... I know that I would buy it.
