Because it is a random Sunday in August, I have again returned to preside over another BonusBall. This time it is at the behest of @Bumblepants
and his recent excursion to the LEGO House.
Because these polybags are exclusive to the LEGO House, we're going to run two (2) raffles: one today that'll run until August 27th; and we'll run a second super-awesome bonus raffle that will start after the first drawing and conclude on September 3rd. (I'll probably throw in a couple of mystery extras as well.)
The drawing will be run to coincide with the BonusBall the next two Saturdays. We want as many unique posts in thread as possible, so please avoid double posts - but EVERY unique post will be counted.
Finally, I strongly urge everyone that enters to make a donation to FairyBricks. If you happen to win the raffle, making a donation for FairyBricks would be even better. If you don't enter the raffle, but still make a donation then you are awesome.
If you're new to the Forum, or not really familiar with what FairyBricks does, please check out their website.https://www.fairybricks.org/

Back to the normal nonsense with the drawing... the question for your consideration:
With the Forestmen Hideout, the Lion Knights' Castle and Galaxy Explorer returning, what classic set would you like Lego to remake/remaster as a set? @SumoLego
's answer: SPACE SKULLS. #10192
. There is no other answer...
Enjoy! And Good Luck!
My answer is for a new TIE Bomber.
This is a tough one, and I could really sit and think and propose several, but the first one(s) that comes to mind is anything from the Ice Planets. If I had to pick one, I'd say the station over any of the vehicles (we have enough vehicles these days), so #6983. I missed out on the entire range as a child, but was lucky/blessed enough to score two of the original sets (in boxes!) in a local comic shop (see one of my posts, probably in the Brag thread), but I would have loved to collect the entire line.
I'll say #6952 Solar Power Transporter.
Thanks for hosting and thanks for gifting Sumo and Bumblepants!
My choice would be #6276 without a doubt!
It was a toss-up between Pirates and Forestmen for me, but in the end, #6077 won out :)
Thanks again for hosting!
However, trying to enter into the spirit, I contemplated this question lots...
#305 or #306 Space baseplates would be welcome additions to the new GE...
but then a proper "lunar" base would be nice too #920, #6970 or #6971...
what about a "lunar" vehicle though? #6928 was/is a fantastic set - a childhood fave...
ah, but what about non-space sets, just to spice things up a bit?
So, maybe a classic big technic car #8860 or #8880 were great sets, worthy of a reimagining too...
or perhaps here's a chance to get a goat? #7189 - although I'd actually prefer #10193 tbh...
but, after much cogitation, I think I'm going to choose #744, a random weird yellow universal building set, that for reasons I cannot fathom, I wanted as a child and for nostalgic reasons I would still like to own a good example of today... a re-worked version might be just the ticket though!
Thanks to @Bumblepants and @SumoLego - love and miss the bonusball!
Seriously though, I'd love to get a monorail rerelease, so I guess I may as well say #6399. Space is awesome, sure, but I really like a terrestrial monorail!
Saying that, I'm not really a nostalgia nut so none of the classic sets do it for me personally* as I only really had small space sets and a few basic bricks when I was younger so they hold no warm and fuzzy place for me.
The only set I actually want an updated (but at the same scale) version of, is #10212 Imperial Shuttle.
It was the one ship I never got hold of from the Kenner toys and I arrived out of my dark age two years to late for the original LEGO version so it's become a bit of a white whale for me.
* I do love #10497 by the way but only because it's a new and modern take on what I would call a rather basic design. (One for the unpopular thread I feel).
Classic to me since I was 8 years old when it came out.
Since I have the other three forestmen location sets (hideout, fortress & crossing).
--cough cough-- 19 --cough cough--
Unsurprisingly, more Space: #6990 would be perfect.
As was foreshadowed, the BonusBall was #19. So, congratulations, @Mr_Cross! I will be in-touch to get the parcel with @Bumblepants's complimentary prize for you!
