  1. They could do what they did with the GT and GT40 with a current-generation Dodge Charger and, say, an old-school Charger similar to the one in Dukes of Hazard (but not the General Lee itself, just the same model)

    There are still projects on the site that are based on existing licenses including the Ferrari 512s, Toy Story set, Knight Rider car, UCS London Bus, A-Team van, Audi Quatro, Alice in Wonderland and some others. Things that (to the best of my knowledge) were spelled out as active licenses when they first introduced the rules in question.

    2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I wish they would just go back to selling the road plates separately (either as a pack of 2 or just one) rather than mixing the types up.
  4. FYI, all the red track pieces are currently showing up as available for me.
  5. I am planning to build a MOC of the XXXX Brewery here in Brisbane (very famous brewery). This brewery has a set of 4 red neon style X's on top of the building. These X's light up in sequence, none then 1 then 2 then 3 then 4 then back to none. Does anyone have any suggestions of a lighting option (either LEGO or 3rd party) that could provide (or be programmed to provide) the desired effect? (preferably with a way to control how long it goes before moving to the next step in the sequence)
  6. These days I only buy Bricks & Pieces online from LEGO. For things I can't get from local retailers, I go to the Dreamworld store (I had multiple Shop @ Home orders get miss-delivered where the only thing that made it here without issue was the Bricks & Pieces and with Dreamworld being easy to get to and charging no shipping, its a no-brainer to get my stuff from there) Interestingly if you add anything from the site (even one single piece of Pick A Brick) to a Bricks & Pieces order, the shipping costs come down compared to just a Bricks & Pieces order alone. (or at least they did when I checked last).

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I have zero interest in a re-released GG. I was kinda interested in the Fire Brigade but then LEGO came out with the GBHQ and the interest in the FB went away :) I would rather see something new with lots of cool pieces and stuff (the Downtown Diner is amazing on that score :)
  8. I would love to see them use their VAG license and do a Lamborghini in the Speed Champions line. A Speed Champions Lamborghini falls squarely into "shut up and take my money" territory for me.
  9. B&P is a great way to get a larger quantity of parts that would otherwise be hard to get (e.g. I bought 1 x 1 tiles in trans-clear and 1 x 1 bricks in trans-black from B&P in the past, both in quantity)

    Nice one getting your Ideas project on the front page of what (as far as I can tell) is a reasonably well-read paper in that town.

    I see no reason why a record store couldn't be on the second floor of a post office or some other business (after all, the first Virgin store was in a shop above a Shoe Store)

    I believe they said in one of the videos for the Downtown Diner that they wanted to do a car dealership but had difficulty fitting it all in due to the space available. I think a petrol station doesn't really fit (the typical image of a petrol station, even an old petrol station, isn't one in the bottom of a taller building). More medical would definitely be welcome (especially if its something different like the Dentist in the Downtown Diner was) Hopefully whatever it is has as many neat parts and things as the Detective's Office, Brick Bank, Assembly Square and Downtown Diner.

    The Mysterious Blue Bicycle

    I wish they would re-issue the yellow bike, it would fit well with the postal stuff (in fact IIRC the yellow bike only ever came in a single postal themed set)

    Ideas for new City sets

    Its probably been mentioned before but I would love to see an "Outback Explorers" theme set in the Australian Outback. In terms of existing animals, use the crocodile, spider, snake, camel, goat and cow (all of which can be found in the outback). In terms of new animals, you could introduce a sheep, a kangaroo, an emu and maybe a koala or wombat or platypus. Maybe find a dog mold you could use for a dingo or a wild dog. Bonus points if there is a non-racist culturally sensitive way to get Aborigines into the sets (with the boomerang piece in brown please) As for the minifigs, introduce a new mold for an Aussie bushman hat (different from the Fedora, the various cowboy hats and the Johnny Thunder type hat). Torsos could feature Aussie bushman type oilskin coats with lots of beards on the heads. Sets would include off-road 4x4 vehicles including at least one proper Ute along with lots of sand and rock type pieces. Old ruined stone or wooden buildings with tin roofs and verandahs over the edge. Must include a water pump style windmill (a feature of stations and properties all across the outback). You could also include the small nimble helicopters used all across the outback for all sorts of jobs (we all know TLG likes to put helicopters in their sets :) One set could be "Outback Medivac" or something and feature an airplane similar in nature to the ones the Royal Flying Doctor Service use (the closest they have come to what I am suggesting is a older medical airplane that was released only as an in-flight purchase and is therefore hard to get)

    I can't see TLG doing a casino (exposing kids to gambling doesn't seem like something TLG would do)
