BendyBadger's Brickset BonusBall Bonanza - Bumblepants LEGO House Edition! (Drawing 08/27/2022)

SumoLegoSumoLego Member Posts: 15,241
Aloha Bricksetters!

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.

Direct Link for making donations:

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!

    Thanks for hosting this!

    My answer is for a new TIE Bomber.

    Not trying to win my polybags back but I want to answer the question so I will say Wolfpack Tower #6075.
  • FizyxFizyx Member Posts: 1,364
    Gotta be #6973.  One of my absolute favorite spaceships of all time, and also I REALLY REALLY want an Ice Planet 2002 return, it was probably my favorite space sub-theme ever.
  • Russell844Russell844 Member Posts: 2,483
    #6393 Big Rig Truck Stop. A nice big Icons set.
  • TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Member Posts: 1,795
    An upgrade to #6927 All-Terrain Vehicle would make my year.

    Thanks to @SumoLego & @Bumblepants for hosting this round!!

    I will say #6950 Mobile Rocket Transport!

    Thank you for hosting!

    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.

    Wow, all the answers so far are great!
    I'll say #6952 Solar Power Transporter.
  • pxchrispxchris Member Posts: 2,438
    Best of luck to everyone! I won't enter this round since I won the last BonusBall but I can't refrain from putting forth an answer - my vote would be a remake of the amazing Eldorado Fortress #6276 to go up against the POBB!
  • ModeltrainmanModeltrainman Member Posts: 1,317
    #2152 Robo Raptor! Thanks @SumoLego, @Bumblepants!
  • CoviCovi Member Posts: 340
    Thanks for hosting this!
    My choice would be #6276 without a doubt!
  • f2iso100f2iso100 Member Posts: 68
    Thank you for hosting! 

    It was a toss-up between Pirates and Forestmen for me, but in the end, #6077 won out :) 
  • donutboydonutboy Member Posts: 762
    #182 Train set. Thanks for hosting.
  • PJ76ukPJ76uk Member Posts: 974
    I have the Galaxy Explorer but won't be buying the castle - I sold all 3 copies of Forestmen Hideout to fund my Lego addiction! As I mentioned in the building thread I found the Galaxy Explorer rather disappointing so if I was to get another remake I'd only consider it for something special like the first technic set I built #8860 Car Chassis which remains to this day the only technic set I'd consider owning personally (yes I'm aware my owned sets list includes 3 technic sets but they were bought for the kids!
  • BrainsluggedBrainslugged Member Posts: 2,278
    Without a doubt #75201. That thing was amazing and I'm sure it was responsible for bringing many many current AFOLs out of their dark ages.
  • SeijiAmasawaSeijiAmasawa Member Posts: 268
    #21100 Shinkai 6500 Submarine
  • ReesesPiecesReesesPieces Member Posts: 1,131
    I'll take a updated version of the green grocer.
    Thanks again for hosting!

    I am a man of simple needs. With #10497 already in my grubby mitts - I'm pretty happy.

    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!
  • bricktuarybricktuary Member Posts: 987
    Nesquik bunny?

    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!
  • andheandhe Member Posts: 4,002
    Here for the thread more than the poly's but I'd like to see them remake perhaps #6067 guarded inn.

    Lots of people have done their own remakes but always end up a bit busy.

    #6986 Galactic Enforcer/Mission Commander. A great looking set that could be brought very nicely up to date like the Galaxy Explorer was! Could even have 3 updated builds for the set, one of the SP-Striker and one of the Galactic Peace Keeper.

    Please disregard my answer as an entry as have some LEGO House goodies already so not looking for any more at the mo.

    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). 
  • FodderFodder Member Posts: 360
    Either #6057 Sea Serpent or #6260 Shipwreck Island. That would press the nostalgia button nicely.

    Anything from the Wolfpack 

  • arathemisarathemis Member Posts: 627
    Not entering the raffle,  but I'd like to add my wishes here: Maersk train. 
  • dspigeldspigel Member Posts: 478
    I’d love to see Model Team to return. Specifically set #5580
  • bpk2300bpk2300 Member Posts: 249
    My vote: #6584

    Classic to me since I was 8 years old when it came out. 
  • PDelahantyPDelahanty Member Posts: 308
    I would love a new monorail like #6399.
  • BastyBasty Member Posts: 496
    I dream of the day Lego introduces another monorail. I can’t recall how many hours I spent as a kid playing with #6990
  • vanvonfullvanvonfull Member Posts: 273
    #6066 camouflaged outpost.

    Since I have the other three forestmen location sets (hideout, fortress & crossing). 
  • Speedman29Speedman29 Member Posts: 2,338
    Thanks for hosting, great to see BBBBBB back again. I'd love #6892 to get the remake treatment. It was one of my favourite Space sets, many a Saturday morning was spent dropping the command module off somewhere, driving around and then flying off to explore.
  • ModeltrainmanModeltrainman Member Posts: 1,317
    #4561 would be a great remake. Alas, LEGO sees no market for trains, it seems.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego Member Posts: 15,241
    Silly me, the results are in but I'm not back to my house until later tonight.

    --cough cough-- 19 --cough cough--
  • brickedinbrickedin Member Posts: 574
    Oops I missed this, great job hosting. Obviously not an entry but I have a massive soft spot for #6970 I must have rebuilt that thing a thousand times as a kid. 
  • MaffyDMaffyD Member Posts: 3,579
    Ah. I missed this whilst on holiday (not bad, some nice weather, kids enjoyed it and so did the parents) but I can't not answer the quiz!

    Unsurprisingly, more Space: #6990 would be perfect.

    I had forgotten all about this
  • SumoLegoSumoLego Member Posts: 15,241
    I didn't.  I just kept pushing it to 'next week' an inordinate amount of times...
  • Mr_CrossMr_Cross Member Posts: 1,713
    Cheers fellas! That's put a big cheesy Christmas grin on my face! Thanks again to @Bumblepants and @SumoLego for doing this!
  • PJ76ukPJ76uk Member Posts: 974
