    Rafts, Rafts, Rafts!

    6261 feels like something I'd most like to play with, but on looks alone it has to be 6257. It's simple and elegant, without any unnecessary parts or colors that would made it feel blocky or awkward.

    [Mod] of 31120

    Oh, wow. This is lovely. Stunning details aside, a lot of what you've included could've been done in one form or another in the official set as well, and that would've made it much more playable.
  3. This would truly be in the Lego of tradition of compromising and disappointing everyone :)

    That makes it work for Lego, not for us. I have to purposely not follow the program and not vote because the chances of actually getting something are only big compared to playing the lottery. And I don't generally enjoy Lego because Lego makes a lot of money :) Duplo has, or had, zoos relatively recently.

    Sure. That was just the first thing that came to mind as an example. The only reason I didn't mind uttering it is that well... it's not like the current Ideas format works either. Crowdfunding for the official program would also be a great idea for the fans to put their money where there mouths are. Anything really, other than a constant stream of disappointment, would work. Bricklink Designer Program would be great, if I had any way of purchasing those sets.

    I'm in the same boat. There's no excitement to any set making it when there's but a slim chance of it becoming an actual set. I'd sooner have the requirement be a bajillion votes but they actually have to make some version of the set, unless there's a real reason not to.

    "future metropolis"

    Too heavy for the supports, maybe? Looks great, tho ☺

    Future Castle Sets?

    That's odd. I get Fortnite and such, but HZD has but a tiny fraction of its popularity.

    [MOC] "Brick-Terre Tavern" by The Plastic Brick

    I dig how the arches have just the right amount of studs to give them some texture.
  10. Looks great, I love the old+new combo :)

    As a musician: what? Most of us are flat broke and those that aren't switched career paths :)

    I like they went overboard with the interior. But, eh.. that doesn't look too good. Just another set that fell short of the idea, I guess.

    Not at all, I'm sorry if I offended you. I'm not here to gaslight people :) The tone of the message had to be such as it it, but obviously I don't really have a way of knowing the demographics of set buyers nor would I presume to know.

    Why do you think that comment applies to everyone? Obviously, a lot of people will buy the set for the usual reason of feeling some kind of connection to it. I quite dig it myself. But there's some truth in every bad joke. I used to play a bit of jazz and even though my town is not small it doesn't take long to discover all the clubs and start seeing familiar faces of both musicians and audience regulars. You'll find the same if you look at the figures of music streaming services. Jazz is hardly popular compared to whatever's rocking the charts these days. So there's (comparably) few jazz musicians, and listeners have even less of an incentive to buy sets of musicians/instruments. Yet LEGO can be pretty sure that a beautiful, expensive set of jazz musicians will sell well because of all I've said :)

    What do you mean? The target market is the same as all the other sets such as: map, globe, typewriter, art sets, instruments, jazz... Rich snobs who like to appear worldly and sophisticated
