Or is their a definition for classic space that I'm missing that could translate into new sets?
It also had a beautiful balance between innovation and imagination, allowing the kids to explore distant worlds in advanced, but not-too-fantastic spaceships and vehicles. Curiosity and learning were the driving forces in those sets, not unlike those of the kids actually playing with them.
I liked the recent City Space sets (and wish more were released, like they teased in the poster that came with the sets), but those were grounded a little too much in reality to truly allow imagination to take hold. You play with them and you can see yourself going to Mars or something that we've actually accomplished, but you can't really imagine them heading to another galaxy or something.
Aliens, evil guys, police, bugs, all that stuff is neat (really neat in some cases actually), but all of those take a little bit away from the innocence and wonderment that was Classic Space.
However, a space theme that's pulled back into the realm of realism would definitely be welcome. Although space bugs can be very cool. I could go for a round of Space sets without an artificial villian.
And I think that part of what makes "classic" space so classic is what others have said: it represented an era when space meant "exploration" and "discovery." It built off that general frame of reference but also dove deeply into 50s, 60s, and 70s sci-fi notions of what the "future" might mean.
No crazy space police or insects. Just a fun planetary exploration line, with some fun cool friendly aliens, vehicle, etc. Astronauts exploring a new world scenario and encounters a bit of friendly life.
Of course, never will happen...
Or was that just me?
According to rottentomatoes the critics hated (24%) The Lone Ranger movie. The audience gave it a passing grade, but just barely (68%). Anyone seen it? If so, what'd you think? More importantly, what about the TLR LEGO theme?
I might want to sell/trade it this autumn.
Seriously, though, just go on ebay and look at sold listings for the same item like others have suggested. It's not hard, and it will be a substantially better metric than asking someone what something is worth.
When you ask something like that, unless it's a really rare item that isn't sold on ebay and/or you are unfamiliar with ebay, it's almost as if you're asking someone to waste their time researching the price instead of spending your own time doing it. I'm not saying this is what you intended, but to me, that's sort of the way it sounds.
PS: Sorry if I'm grumpy- just woke up lol.
Did someone say DS was retiring?
*puts head back down*
FB, PS, and PC are now my favorite modulars, and PC might move up above PS once I actually build it. :)
I finished TH and was just not impressed. The part count is huge, the building is big, but it is just a tad on the dull side. I can't tell you why either. Maybe it is the color, maybe it just isn't a building that anyone relates to or gets excited about.
Everyone has a pet or knows someone who has a pet, everyone knows what a fire station is and they are pretty cool, and we all love the cinema. :)
Town Hall? That is where you pay speeding tickets, get a marriage licence, and deal with the government. Whee! :)
I know we've had Cafe Corner, but what I really want is another split building like PS, with a Starbucks on one side and another (different) apartment on the other.
I like coffee! :)
And I apologize for wasting your time.
This corner building is near our business.
Like looking into a mirror.
With Chima on the run, and a Ninjago movie in the works, I sense this line is laying low, but ready to pounce in 2014.
