AFOLs do have a chance now, to influence!

It looks a very interesting discussion happened in the headquarters!

We all have sometime needed elements in a color never released by TLG.
So Jamie (the D2C Lead Designer) wants to get an overview from you about which existing elements do you think that are missing in existing colors.

Please make sure they get as many realistic answers/suggestions as possible to deliver a good list to the Design Team - and remember the deadline.
Participation details into the official announcement below:

Hi LEGO Fans,
the LEGO Community Development would like to know which of the already existing elements would be needed most urgently in missing colors. Some optimism presumed the number one of the resulting list could end in a "color change" and might be produced in the future.
To participate - the way is as follows:
Suggestions need to be send by email until the 30.06.2010. These suggestions will be sorted and afterwards published for a voting. The final chart will be send to the LCD Team.
For easier handling the suggestions should be aligned to the description of the BrickLink catalogue:
Suggestions only will be accepted in a color which is still in production. So e.g."Fabuland brown" is invalid because production of this color was stoped in 1997. An overview about the actual colors could be downloaded here:
An example:
Part No:
Slope 30 1 x 1 x 2/3
New color:
brick-yellow (tan)
The suggestions should be send to this email address:

Just start to send you suggestions!
There might be some Technic parts, you ever wished to see in a different color...
You know what you miss, better then everyone else.

I have always found it odd 41677 Black Technic, Liftarm 1 x 2 Thin is not available in yellow. So I have e-mail this!

I asked for the 1x6 and 1x7 thin Technic liftarms to be produced in white. This would allow Jennifer Clark's Demag AC50 to be made without painting parts. I'd also like to see the yellow version be less rare.

I would like to see some white and dark grey linear actuators, to go with the mindstorms theme (Although this would really only be useful if there were some faster, smaller mindstorms motors to drive the linear actuators).

I'd want to see the triple-joiner in black or dark-stone - emailed that.

Any of the newer, larger Space-themed "windscreen" elements in transparent yellow (for use with Classic Space colour scheme) would be excellent.

Parax said...

to follow blackbird I'd vote for the 13M Beam in White!

JAMS said...

I sent:

3x5 - L-shaped lift arms in white
2x2 - brick, round, in trans red
32020 - 62.4 x 20 wheel in red

Also, wishful thinking for those black cat wheels to come back

Ryan said...

The 2x2 brick round in trans red does exist, eg. in 8145 Ferrari

JAMS said...

Ya, I know, I'd just like to see more of it so that they don't cost $2 a piece on BL

TechnicBRICKs said...

If feasible, I'd suggest almost every Technic part not yet released in orange...

Junkstyle Gio said...

I agree with Conchas!
Give us the complete Technic-parts range in orange.
But a Orange set would be a great beginning.
