Vote for a TRU exclusive City set!
Posted 03 April 2009 - 05:25 PM
The three options are (one of which I'm really excited about):

Notice the monorail in option 2? Now, the little disclaimer says they can't include everything, but a new monorail would be a pretty big omission!
Now, who remembers the Star Wars vote? Were all three options made, but only one is a TRU exclusive. My thought is that perhaps all three of these sets will be limited edition, but only one will be carried by TRU. A big teaser marketing campaign here...

And as previously mentioned, we'll be getting a truck repair shop already and have Town Plan which seems remarkably similar to Town Square. But, I think they will produce all of these sets no matter what we vote...they just won't all be TRU exclusives. Maybe a S@H exclusive and a Target exclusive? Although, wasn't one of the SW options last year another Slave I? They haven't made that. What was the third option?

At best, I figure we'll get a tram with the public transportation set, along with a bus. Trams are PITA to build nicely, and the infrastructure especially so. And if we get the truck stop I'm crossing my fingers that we'll get a small fleet of trucks with it.
But honestly, I'm hoping that we'll get all three. I just didn't vote for number one, because I want the other two more.

Like already decided here I voted for option 1: City Square!
I must say that option 1 looks the less promising on the pictures - I really don't understand why they nearly only draw already existing sets (town hall of 10184, the new pizzeria and the new sports car) on thos picture and apart from the fountain in the middle of the street (which looks too close to the fountain of 10184), the taxi, the pink car and the toys shop which looks very similar to the cinema in 10184. So where are the parts which shall make this set so attractive?! And whrere are all the foliage plants and all that thinigs TLG is promising in the topic description here?! I only see a little fountain beset with streets - this is no park!!!
It seems as if TLG interntionally did not inlcude much new stuff in this pic in order to that not many people will vote for it!
Nevertheless I voted for this option since I think that TLG supposably does have some good ideas about which could be included in this set - but doesn't want to show already now (although I know that this doesn't sound very convincing).
When TLG publishes a picture like this one which shows a monorail and in the end then we wouldn't get a monorail many of us were very angry - and that wouldn't be good for TLG.
The tram looks very promising, too.
But notice that - because of these new overpriced PF stuff - this set would either get very, very expensive or there would only very few be included or you would have to add (and consequently even buy) all that PF stuff extra. That's the only thing which really disturbs me at this option.
I bet that TLG will release the option voted the most as an exclusive City set. Nevertheless I bet that the two other versions will appear as regular sets at the latest in 2011, too.
When you look at the truck stop this is absolutely obvious: A truck stop is a typical set for JFOLs. So why should TLG only release it when it would get number one of the votes?!
Like alread mention in the other topic I surely wouldn't like a truck stop that much since it would only bring oversized trucks and buidlings of which we already have got enough (a garage, a gas station and perhaps a little restaurant) .
Nevertheless the motel shown on the pic would be a brilliant idea. But I don't see a reason why a motel or hotel couldn't be released as part of the City Square option or as a seperate set.
I'm very excited which option will win. But I fear that the bad picture of the City Square option will have a too negative influence effect on people so that they won't vote for this one - too bad since this option would have a big potential!

I think TLG could produce a really cool set for this. I couldn't decide between this one and the transport centre though.

Looking at choice 1 and 3, it seems kind of odd since we got a Town Plan last year, and there's already a truck stop type set on the way.

But I decide me for the first one.
I love the idea that TLC would make an 'City Square' with a little fountain and some nice new minifigures.
But I must agree to the most of you that N°2 could be an outstanding set, if TLC make a new rail

About choice 2:
The trike would be great for Asia scenes.
Also, notice how there is a train, a monorail, a bus, and taxis. I wonder if we will get all four?

Couldn't a poll be added to that thread to visualise what people voted at that internet site? Would be interesting! I'm curious to know. Just a suggestion.
