    I most certainly do! 😉

    you obviously missed the " ;) " As if a base would be similar to what the other poster wanted, ie a mech. Sorry I pissed you off. 'twas not the intent.

    Well... my MOC ticks most of your boxes - it's a space theme (check), it's modular, ie you can connect multiple copies together (check) and you can rebuild the innards in 5 different ways (check)... but it's not a mech... Still, 3 out of 4 ain't bad, right? ;)

    You mean something like ... Planetary Outpost? 😉

    It does sound good, but those spaceships would have to go somewhere, so we'd still need a base or two, for refuelling, repairs, and R&R :)

    Looking at the trailer, it looks like we’ll get a couple of ships (including a house-ship) but it may be that most of the new space characters will be mini dolls.

    It’s amazing how fast it’s gathering support. I was put off though by the fact it only has two walls and no roof. But obviously that isn’t bothering most people 😉

    I think I might be able to help 😉 https://captainmutantblog.wordpress.com/planetary-outpost/
  9. He didn't say yes or no about a lot of stuff, we haven't got a categoric answer about any kind of space theme. As far as we know, LEGO might... or might not be planning something. However, if you're looking for a Mars theme from LEGO, our little yellow minifig friends have already gone there ;) http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/Mars_Mission
  10. Good point, julesvincent. I'm sure there's loads he knows that he just can't reveal yet because the plans, sets, goals, etc haven't officially been announced.
  11. I’m surprised about Mike’s concern about nostalgia, as I thought nostalgia played a big part is many sets LEGO create. As Danth said, the snowspeeder was a great example: a highly detailed vehicle last seen 38 years ago. But what about last year’s modular expert building? It was 100% nostalgia too, filled with detail that reminded you of previous modular buildings. Nostalgia sells, especially with this particular toy. I know there’s an appetite for Classic Space sets (I’m a huge fan myself), so you have to wonder what are LEGO waiting for? 2018 would’ve been a perfect time to test the waters with a single set (as it’s the 40th anniversary of Classic Space), maybe a modular expert one as raised in the interview, to see how many people actually are interested in an in-house sci-fi theme (kinda the reason I submitted my own model on LEGO Ideas ;) So if the designers are wondering if it’s worrh delving back into space or not, why was nothing ready for the anniversary?

    Putting it in the signature is a great idea. Thanks Exetrius. Yes I as I said above, I might have been a tad exuberant, but I've taken some pills for that and it shouldn't happen again. I have a major update planned for my LEGO Ideas project which will radically change how the inside is built and looks, so I can't really stop working on it just yet. After that, we'll see. I might retire from LEGO MOCing for a while... it's an expensive hobby. Oh btw Exetrius, I already support your awesome project - that's because I put my vote where my mouth is and support all the best Classic Space LEGO Ideas! ;)

    Yeah. I had a feeling I might’ve overstepped the bounds. But all I saw were people lamenting the loss of LEGO space sets and no matter how many times I tried to make them feel better by pointing out this potential option, they didn’t pick up on it. It was as though my posts were under some kind of cloaking device. I’ll try and calm down...
  14. Guys, I got tired of waiting for LEGO to do right by us so I submitted this: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b0827dea-3bd0-46b2-a733-e2e380fa1794 maybe if enough vote for it, it could force LEGO’s hand?

    Guys, I want a new LEGO space theme as much as the mad about sci-fi AFOL (because I’m one of them!), but we might have to resign ourselves to the fact LEGO won’t fill that need. But as a firm believer of that saying in that animated movie Robots, “see a need, fill a need!” So…behold, Planetary Outpost! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b0827dea-3bd0-46b2-a733-e2e380fa1794 Why don’t we show LEGO a thing or two by getting this project to 10,000 so they’d have to seriously consider reviving their home grown sci-fi lines? Let’s to it for all those sci-fi fans out there who believe there’s more to the genre than Star Wars! :)
