It would be great to see TLG put out a sustained theme that puts all the characters/races/factions in one big world and not have to “re-set” everything every couple years.
Alien Conquest may have been the last Space-like theme we got, but it showed a lot of promise if they would go back to a real Space theme and keep the overall theme running. So much potential - not just nostalgia for collectors like myself who grew up with Classic Space, but also the ability to re-invite and make use of all the newer parts and tech they've got available now. Ninjago showed a lot of crazy cool ideas brought to brick form - imagine pairing that with the Space theme. It makes me shiver with excitement.
Granted, this could all end up as just a rumor and prove to be false, but just the possibility of it will still have me excited - till then, I'll keep working on Space MOCs and carry the torch of Space's return alongside all of you.
Here's to the hope for the return of Space next year! *cheers*
I hadn't seen your reply when I drafted my own; this is exactly how I feel. Make the universe diverse and eclectic, with elements from even the most obscure old themes (see: Ice Planet or Life on Mars)
It would be a sure fire winner!!
