Theres so many they could do, one set wouldn't be enough.

I would hope that there could be a farmyard set, a safari set, a forest set etc.

And I only want to buy animals I am not interested in them as part of a bigger set. This has been my problem with the forest rangers set - I would LOVE  :wub: that bear but I'm not buying a set I don't care for for it, and its expensive on bricklink, though that could be what I do. More of the existing cows/goats/chickens/bears would be really useful too if you could buy them without buying construction sets where they are one item amongst many bricks.

My top 5 and this is hard:

Deer/Stag/Reindeer type - maybe antlers are new bone type mold at detachable
...Elephant - yes I know thats #6 but I can't leave it out

But a non-friends version hedgehog, turtle, fox, donkey, giraffe and tiger are really appealing too. In fact most animals are! I would want just about any animal they produce  :blush:

Edit: Agreeing with other - fantasy. That centaur should have already been done when HP was out.

I'd like to see a safari theme; however, I doubt exclusivity to Duplo has been by accident.

I'd love to see:

1) a new elephant mold; more realistic.
2) a tiger
3) more snakes and lizards
4) a hammerhead shark
5) an anaconda mold; larger than a usual snake mold

My oh my, how I would enjoy those pieces.

4 a wofl (castle set)
3 a sheep (castle/farm set)
2 a turtle (pirates set)
1 a stork ! (zoo/farm set) [my favorite animal : indeed, I live in a France's region where they are so numerous]

Having a ZOO theme would be fantastic. I prefer the animals to look more realistic (the Friends rabbit is too cute  :sceptic: ).

My top five would be turtles, deer, sheep, pigeon and lobster (as I'm a townie more or less).

The molds you've designed for new animals are neat, but the printing doesn't look "LEGO-y" enough. The detail is far too fine, which makes them look far less cartoony than comparable LEGO animals. Larger eyes would help, but really all of the printing should be simpler and less fine.

As for my most wanted animals...

1: Lion (both male and female variations; the female one could be repainted as other large cats like tigers or panthers)
2: Gorilla (I envision it as a mix between animal molds like the new bear and "megafigures" like the Hulk or the Castle Troll)
3: Deer (ideally one with attachment points for a separate antler piece)
4: New Horse variations (such as a new foal in line with the new poseable horse, or zebras, unicorns; heck, a horse neck to accommodate minifig torsos for making centaurs would be excellent, although that might not belong here)
5: New Elephant (while the old one was good, a new one more in line with newer animals like the dinosaurs from the Dino theme would be excellent)

1. Hound-style dog with floppy ears. I want my sig fig to have a beagle like mine. The wolf ears don't cut it.
2. Deer/reindeer for forest and holiday MOCs.
3. Birds with wings spread, possibly even posable. I love the printing on the new owls, but they just sit there.
4. Sheep are conspicuously absent from the farm and medieval market.
5. Penguins. Not that the brick-built ones from the Batman line weren't great...

- sheep
- deer (/stag/reindeer - probably the same mold in different colors, and maybe different antlers)
- bison
- wolf
- a bird in flight

And the obligatory :thumbup: for a zoo and/or safari theme!

Keep pushing this theme guys.  Its only a matter of time.  :sweet:

1. Rhino - Enough said.
2. Sheep - These would be really cute, the goats are wicked so c'mon!
3. Moose / Deer - Antlers detachable and would make NPUs in MOCs.
4. Rabbit - Should be similar to the chicken's size.
5. Wolf / Fox - Different sizes of course.

I'd like sheep, deer, Bulls,a new head up cobra snake, and Lions. the deer antlers look a little flimsy though. maybe you should make them about one rod thick and shorter.

How about a new adventurers theme like that?

Really, its a wonder that we haven't already seen a lion or tiger. Orient Expedition was an excellent opportunity to make a tiger, but instead someone at TLC had the bright idea of making a bulky, ugly piece of plastic called a 'tygurah' that was utterly useless for anything outside that theme.

But anyway, my top five would be:

1. Lion
2. New elephant
3. Tiger
4. Rhinoceros
5. Moose

Oh! *oh2* How did I forgot bulls/oxen?! Very important working animals in the Middle Ages. I'm gonna have to retcon them into my list. Sorry boars, you've been displaced.
