My first idea is sort of a modern take on Classic Space, the same design for the Series 1 Astronaut I think is perfect for the minifigs. Different color suits maybe could be done again or something different. I would like this theme to get back to the exploration of space with a conflict but not like in recent years there will be no aliens. There can be space astronauts who have zip guns and are like the security team and space marauders (new helmet design) and space civilians. Also robots play a nice role in the sets as helpers. I would like to see a modern day take on the Galaxy Explorer as well as a new space monorail set, moon bases and all sorts of smaller sets like space mechs and smaller civilian type ships.
Here is my set wave breakdown:
Space Moon Base Alpha Monorail: $150 1000+ pieces
The D2C set of the first wave and TLG exclusive. A new redesigned monorail system is long over due and can be implemented in City too. A simple loop with raising up and down and a nicely designed moon base and transport area. Maybe a small ship and a mech to explore the planet. Includes 3 Space Astronauts, 2 Space Marauders and Space Civilians and robot.
Galaxy Explorer 2.0: $75-$100 750+ pieces
The largest consumer store set of the wave the flagship set that is not the D2C. Basic concept and maybe a similar color scheme to original, I would like to see some originality here and a nicely built ship. Includes 3-4 minifigs such as the pilot, astronaut and civilian and various cargo and a small planet rover vehicle.
Outer Moon Base Outpost: $40-50 400+ pieces
A moon base outpost where studies are being conducted. Includes a new crater baseplate with a small base, space rover and some mineral bricks the ore part in chrome green or chrome blue or standard colors. Lets call it unabatanium (spelling?) Minifigs include a Scientist, Astronaut, robot and Engineer type fig.
Exploration Mech: $20-30 200+ pieces
This will be a nice mech type set where the astronaut or scientist can explore a planet and do certain things like take samples or drill or battle etc. There can also be another one for the space marauders with a different color scheme. Includes astronaut and robot and ore parts.
Planet Rover: $10 50+ pieces
A small rover that can be drive around and has shocks etc and also has a cargo to carry around. Includes astronaut or space civilian.
Now for your ideas.
