Future Set Wishes and Speculation

Recommended Posts

Think I said this on another thread, but there is just no way it's going to be a Corvette if it's a supercar.

Lego is a European company and there's not a single person in Europe who thinks of Corvette when they hear the word supercar, our opinion of the Corvette is the same as our opinion of American cars in general, they're alright for driving straight down a drag strip or the like, but once the road starts turning there's nothing better than an Italian vehicle  :laugh:

Still hoping it's not a car though!

Anyone who might wish for a LEGO jet engine kit with Technic functions should take a look at a new LEGO Idea that I posted in The Embassy LEGO Ideas discussion.

A new Rolls-Royce jet engine with cut-away sections and internal gearbox has been submitted.

It is already attracting significant support after 24 hours and should soon reach 1000 votes.

It can be motorised; there is a video of it on Twitter (search for @cakesmyth)

I spend a lot of time on a swedish motorcycle forum, the general consensus is that italian bikes are the most fun to ride, but they're not the most reliable.
If you want good old solid quality you buy japanese, it may not be the most fun bike but you know it'll keep going and going and going and going... :laugh:
I've owned an italian bike and it was a real piece of art, riding it was amazing but it had it's mechanical kinks for sure, never had such problems with the 5 japanese bikes I've owned, although none of them have given me as much joy..

We can still speculate, wish and dream for a few days... What Italian cars are in the Speed Champions series? Ferrari 458 Italia GT2, Ferrari LaFerrari, Ferrari FXX K, F1 car, ...

I would give a sh..t about any mechanical failures, similar to the tremendous technical issues in the 42056, if it would be one of the mentionned above :sweet:! Of course any of them has a chance, at least in red color, so I´ll keep building my own :wink:.

There's still a chance they won't reveal it there at all though, as they've chosen to only display H1 sets at other toy fairs.

I would like to add my thoughts about set 42083.
Lego also has a license for Ford. They already made a modern Mustang and an F-150 Raptor. They also have a 2016 and a 1966 Ford GT set avaible

The leaked catalog showed there will be a 1968 Mustang and the official dutch Ford site state there will be a new mustang in 2018. (That's 50 years later, same as with the GT set.)
The official english Ford site also state there will be a new Ranger in 2019.

So I'm hoping set 42083 is a Ford Mustang or a Ford Ranger :sweet:

Has anyone here ever suggested the idea of Steampunk themed sets for Technic? If you think about it, the genre's inventive, tinkering thematic concepts kind of are a perfect fit for the theme. :shrug_oh_well:

Steampunk themed (and Technic) sets tend not to do too well on the Ideas site :cry_sad:

Yes, I know, that's true for the most part. But there have been a few projects that have gained some significant headway, including this one: *

Steampunk Battleship by A. Graham LEGO Design

But I should mention, the Steampunk genre has not tested well as a playtheme according to @Nabii (a.k.a. Lego designer Mark Stafford) in this post of his:sad:

P.S. You'll get a lot more results on Ideas for the genre if you search "Steampunk" instead of "steam Punk".

Yes I realised after I went back and did another search.

Thanks
