Color Change by AFOLs?
Posted 08 August 2010 - 01:48 AM
I'm kicking myself for not noticing the cypress tree!!
I voted for bicycles of various colours, dark red foliforous trees, white and grey laptops, sand green roof pieces and a few other things I can't remember. Regardless of which of those pieces are popular with others or not, I think we can agree that whatever pieces are most popular overall are going to be ones we all like. I can't wait to see the results (and hopefully, evidence of this in future sets )

3794 Plate Modified 1 x 2 with 1 Stud (Jumper): Earth Green (141) Dark Green
3070 Tile 1 x 1: Dark Brown (308) Dark Brown
3024 Plate 1 x 1: Dark Brown (308) Dark Brown
3024 Plate 1 x 1: Earth Green (141) Dark Green
3023 Plate 1 x 2: Earth Green (141) Dark Green
Basic plates (and 1 x 1 tiles) in dark green and dark brown would be amazing. The dark green 1 x 2 plate technically exists already, but only in one set and it's crazy expensive - over a buck each on BL, I think.
50745 Vehicle, Mudguard 4 x 2 1/2 x 2 with Arch Round: Medium Stone Grey (194) Light Bluish Grey
4493c01pb07 Horse with Black Eyes with White on Two Sides: Dark Brown (308) Dark Brown
4274 Technic, Pin 1/2: Black (26) Black
3741 Stalk: Sand Yellow (138) Dark Tan
x97 Minifig, Bandana: Earth Green (141) Dark Green
I could do a lot with a light gray mudguard. I've wanted new horse colors for ages. Black technic half pins would be all kinds of useful. Dark tan stalks are nice for dead / deserty foliage, and a dark green bandana is probably the most specialized and limited-use thing I voted for, but dammit, I build Western and I need bandanas!
As an aside, I'm very sad I couldn't vote for a brick 1 x 1 round in dark brown, because I'd LOVE to have that piece for so many reasons and applications.

Just quoting this for the people who are 'kicking themselfs' because they didn't notice a certain peice.

x69 Green Plant, Tree Cypress -Dark Green
62711 Minifig, Headgear Hair Short, Bob Cut- Bright Light Yellow
62698 Minifig, Utensil Computer Laptop- White
2417 Plant Leaves 6 x 5- Reddish Brown
1) I think the Dog in different colors is long overdue.
2) The Cypress tree being rereleased would be nice, especially in dk. green
3) I like any hair in bright yellow.
4) I didn't get any of the sets with the laptop, so more would be nice, especially in City
5) I feel like even if we all voted for just one of the fall colors, we would end up with a few different colors if they were to ever end up in a set.
I'm excited to see if this goes anywhere!

I was expecting something smarter like fake ip for a start (not that you should try anything smarter). But this clearly won't work.

My 100th post.
I agree. Personally, I'm not too sure about colours of the pieces, just as long as they do appear...
I do like, however, the ghost shroud (I don't own one), most of the minifig accessories, scenery elements and baseplates. That's quite broad though, but as I said, I don't mind much about the colours in most cases.

Done! That was one of my five various elements. The other votes were spruce tree big and small in white since they'd be wonderful for a winter landscape plus train windows in green and train windows in dark green. As for the basic elements, I have no idea what I should vote for.

That was really hard. I could have easily chosen 10 items of each poll.
I voted for most of the transparent bricks and - see my new signature.
The 48x48 baseplate in tan was a great choice as well.

A blue bicycle, a (dark-green) cypres tree and a black door without window would be brilliant!

Because of "nickname/memberid," I assume the middle field "community and home country" is looking for the website of your home LUG. Or a generic website, like LUGNET. Since the poll was advertised here on Eurobricks, is it specifically looking for a Eurobricks ID?
(Personally, I didn't consider any of the minifig parts, because I'm perfectly happy to custom-paint *those*. I'd rather direct my votes to something where paint is uncouth and verboten.)

Is LEGO SERIOUSLY considering releasing these parts? Or is this just some wishlist that an AFOL invented because it's a bunch of parts they wished they could get? If it's a legitimate list from LEGO, what's it for? Pick-A-Brick online? LUGBULK? Future elements for sets? Why the hell is it called "color change", when that's about the scariest choice of words imaginable for AFOLs? Who's conducting the survey? Were the results really lost? Why is the "cover letter" posted to Eurobricks, but seemingly nowhere else official?
Apologies to whoever is conducting this survey, but it just seems really unclear to me what's going on with it.

I love those two colors.
