Only Fools and Horse's Reliant Robin with Batman Del, Robin Rodney and Grandad minifigs.
Rolls Royce Phantom.
We are getting the Delorean so that is something to look forward to.
but where to find the LDD file?
Cusoo has granted us a Delorean, I guess other classics with lots of long straight angles would be perhaps easier to render in lego. Lotus Esprit springs to mind, but in lego it might end up a similar shape to the Delorean.
What I would love to get around to MOCing would be this though:
The main problems with cars is getting the licenses from the manufacturers and finding ones that are popular enough to justify making into a set. Sure, the Lancia Integrale thingy up there is a classic, but does it have a big enough fanbase to make a Lego model of it economically viable? That said, I'd LOVE to see more licensed cars from Lego.
It's Surprisingly tricky thinking of an original one that ticks all the boxes! How about a Land Rover?
@cozy good call !
Tie two themes together. The first vehicle to roll off the assembly line, and you get to be that person who assembly's it. Just like the old days.
land rover would be awesome - there's a great cuusoo one too.
There is a cute but mnon copyright-infiringing 'tribute' to a series one Landy in this set: #4637
-I reckon an 800-piece 12-or-so wide version is definitely a goer! (scurries off to LDD)
I had this awesome idea the other day for a set which just comes with pieces to make several licensed cars, like a Creator/bucket set but with real licensed vehicles in...my mind hasn't decided what scale they'd need to be at, though. :P
One more feasible thing they could do is something more like the SW Planet sets: small, accurate 'display' models which use more complicated building techniques (and thus look better) than the 'Tiny Turbos' (and the recent Shell promo Ferraris). I think those would be quite popular with the AFOL market.
I think they should definitely have a range of more complicated stuff (not unnecessary huge stuff like SSD) but more complex. Maybe that's where Creator Expert will be going?
the forthcoming 42009 mobile crane
RRP is expected to be about £150, and it is expected to be available in August.
Many commercial Jet all look a bit similar but the A380 or Jumbo stand out. Military has the variation, but as TLC only as far as WW1 with the Sopwith, might have to wait another 5 years to get Spitfire etc. Maybe Nasa test stuff? Chunk Yeagers X1, or the forward swept X29
UPS delivery truck? At least it's known worldwide! ;-)
^ The same could be said for the Sopwith Camel. It's also clearly military, no idea how the rules dont apply for that one.
If you extend TLG's anti-military rules to apply for all time periods, then LEGO Castle, LEGO Pirates (at least, those sets with Imperial Guards), and LEGO Wild West would all have violated them from the very beginning. Not to mention the Indiana Jones licensed theme, which featured WWII-era military vehicles and weapons.
It should be noted that Germans are typically not proud of their involvement in either World War, and so I hardly think they'd take offense at military vehicles of the countries they were fighting against. The place TLG has to play it safe with WWII vehicles is that they can't portray anything with Nazi iconography, since it would then be illegal to sell in Germany.
Please don't start another huge argument about that! (I mean 'discussion'. :P Another huge 'discussion')
With Agatha Christie minifigs and a Cluedo game included.
New part = lead pipe.
