I like seeing this sort of set on Ideas, as it not the sort of thing you would associate with Lego, but it's a well thought out and put together

The more I deepen into Lego Ideas the more sad I get. Specifically:

1) In 2014 the wonderful Macross Vf-1 Valkyrie, by maxvf1, reached the 10000 supporters but Lego did not approve the model. This hypothetical set could have represented the way in to a competition against Hasbro Kre-o Transformers but Lego decided to back out. I wonder which was the reason. Low profitability? Macross' license was too expensive? Risks of a legal dispute with Hasbro due to the similarity with Transformers' ip? (By the way, didn't Macross ip come first?)

I don't understand if nowadays Kre-O is still a true competitor, perhaps this could be a good moment for Lego to give Macross a chance and therefore to take a first step towards considering the purchase of other Japanese ips, in my opinion an endless source of ispiration and, on a business level, a good investment thanks to their large fanbases.

I have found out that another Macross Valkyrie's project - by len_d69, the same designer of Voltron - is underway and I have immediately supported it. Fingers crossed.

2) Respectively in 2016 and 2017 two stunning mocs, the Merchant's House (by bigboy99899) and the Medieval Watermill (by Ben Pitchford) got the 10000 supporters, however Lego rejected the submissions. Both mocs shown the most advanced building techniques, such as angled walls, curved roofs and a great level of snot details. But no, sorry, what could have been a huge kickstart to a modernised Castle line is not going to happen.

Other good potential incomes lost considering that, if contests like CCC are held and the inherent mocs are showcased at the conventions, is because there is a vast fanbase of Castle theme.

The most depressing element of the previous examples is that a pioneering company like Lego is asking for innovative concepts but then feels afraid of putting them in practice.

Speaking of Macross (or Robotech if you prefer), there is another attempt of Vf-1 Valkyrie, this time submitted by len_d69. The author of Voltron is back with a marvellous model able to transform into the three different forms (aircraft, mecha and gerwalk). Let's support his idea and let's hope that this time Lego would approve the project.

By the way, I know it has already been posted in this thread but, in my opinion, the LL 497 Galactic Explorer by Peter Reid, another habitue' of Ideas, is not getting the recognition it deserves, considering both the quality of the design and the fact that it would be a perfect model to be produced for the 40 years Space anniversary.

I know, that project should be SKYROCKETING, being that it's Pete Reid's and all! :look:

Maybe there is truly no hope for a Space theme comeback, which is surprising, considering that a neoclassic starship could intercept two different market segments at the same time, attracting both old customers, who will recognize the essence of the original model, and new ones, who will appreciate the modern snot design. Regarding this matter we should not have afols proposing ideas, Lego itself should make an attempt, at least with one model or two and then check the sales feedback.

But then I think of the Macross model which reached the 10k votes and was dismissed.

Regarding that approach of "testing the waters" with one or two singular build sets, I've always said that Creator's Three-In-One line should be the best way Lego could do that utilizing a preexisting theme, as it can accommodate any sort of untested idea/concept for such without needing to riskily devote an entire theme/line to expermention of that idea, especially when it's a more generic, archetypical one! :wink:

Isn't that exactly what they did with Benny's Spaceship, 70816.

I don't think this is true at all. Look at sets like the pop-up book, ship in a bottle, birds, the maze, Voltron, exosuit, etc. All innovative concepts conceived through Ideas and made into sets.

Pursuit of Flight by JKBrickworks

Pursuit of Flight by JKBrickworks

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/9f20e63f-79a7-4625-bb09-1b51a7b17842

This fantastic kinetic sculpture was created by Jason Allemann of JKBrickworks. Many of you will recall that Jasons Labyrinth Marble Maze was approved by LEGO and became set 21305 - Maze which is now retired. Jason also has another project Pop-up Book which has already reached 10,000 supporters and is currently in review status by LEGO. 

This newest creation is a dream theme for me. I'm a fan of small sets, the Fokker Dr.1, and kinetic LEGO sculptures. Please click on the Ideas link above or below and lend your support. This project already has over 4600 supporters in only 5 weeks! With your help we can see it on shelves at a LEGO store soon. Thanks!

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/9f20e63f-79a7-4625-bb09-1b51a7b17842

Pursuit of Flight now needs just 50 votes to hit 10k! Check it out and go support it please.
