    So, what are Leaf, IP-2 and Zebra?

    I'm out of the loop. What does this mean? We still don't know what Leaf and Zebra are? And they aren't scheduled for the first part of 2020? Or am I totally off?

    [WIP] MOC Blacktron Bounty Hunter spaceship

    I like this a lot. Simple but fun. I really want that rocket booster to be yellow though.

    Did anything ever come of the sci-fi head? What did it look like?

    Which Themes Deserve a Reboot?

    I've been advocating this for years now. One really nice Themed Creator set a year for Castle, Space, and something else (Pirates/Wild West). Each needs to be essentially a parts pack + minifig pack to be successful.
  6. Exactly! But, just like SW, if they made Blacktron toys again, they'd be toys from now, and kids today will have heard of it. True. But they still sell City sets, and Ninjago, and Friends, etc. If they made new Space sets, and marketed them, they'd probably be popular too.
  7. We wouldn't need to repeat ourselves. Look at the catalog of Space sets from 78 to 98. There's 20 years of wildly different Space designs in different color schemes. From Classic Space to Ice Planet to Insectoids. And there's nothing stopping them from doing something totally new in the spirit of old Space sets. Star Wars can't even hope to match that scope. And they can't do anything new either. Instead they just add a red stripe to a dated design and call it new. Super lame.
  8. 1) Can we get this for unlicensed Space themes? 2) It's literally the same designs decade after decade. Why is this needed? Why is Star Wars so popular 40 years after the first movies, 20 years after the god-awful prequels? Why don't people want something new and different? I find the need for 20 years of the same designs to be forced, and frankly, sad.

    Which Themes Deserve a Reboot?

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. CLASSIC. THEMED. CREATOR. SETS.

    Which Themes Deserve a Reboot?

    Space Mechs would be a smash hit. It would appeal to Space fans and everyone else because who doesn't love mechs? It's also one of the few space sci-fi tropes that Star Wars hasn't touched. Unless you count AT-ATs or whatever but it's a huge stretch to calls those mechs. Ice Planet is one of the most fondly remembered Space themes, and has one of the best color schemes. Also, just like Mechs, ice exploration is not really a thing in Star Wars. Sure there's Hoth but other than being cold there's no overlap. It's a perfect choice for a reboot.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Is that star made of four pieces? If so those will be put to immediate use in Space mocs; at least as windscreens in microbuilds. EDIT: Found it. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=35649#T=C

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10267 - Gingerbread House

    Hah, the baby is a tile! Tile babies! Anyway has nobody mentioned the transparent yellow pieces that make that star? They look like separate pieces anyway. 1x1 tile with one extended corner? Big if true. Lots of uses in Space mocs.
  14. My ideal Space theme would be something that combines a few non-violent adventure tropes that feed back into each other. Like racing, mining, mecha, and treasure hunting. You could have miners drilling for ores and/or power sources used by racers. And you need mechs for mining or loading or even moving around motors in the raceship (heh) workshop. Of course miners would eventually stumble upon ancient relics from some long gone space civilization, and then treasure hunters show up to steal it, and maybe they hire racers to as getaway drivers to escape the space police. I dunno, just brainstorming here.
