More Feedback Wanted (Element Color Vote)

Postby Staff » Tue Jun 15, 2010 11:19 pm

I like how LEGO is asking fans directly what they want, and I love that this time I don't have to sift through three pages of suggestions and comments to summarize you thoughts like in the previous outreach. The scope is narrower in this request, but it sounds a lot more promising for builders out there. Here's the topic of the day:
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:
http://www.bricklink.com/catalogTree.asp?itemType=P

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:
http://x-brick.de/ambassador/colorpalet ... alette.pdf

An example:

Part No: 50746
Name: Slope 30 1 x 1 x 2/3
New color: brick-yellow (tan)

The suggestions should be send to this email address: [email protected]

I think that's all that needs to be said.

Just to clarify, should we be using that email address in the opening post individually, or is a rep from FBTB going to be forwarding on this info?

I think I probably seconded all your trans-yellow canopy requests. We might actually see something out of that, as I've heard a LOT of people have requested them.

According to Bricklink, it already comes in flesh (not light flesh or dark flesh...just "flesh")

I was thinking more along the lines of knackwurst or bratwurst in ze style of ze Germans. "Brick yellow," after all, is tan to the rest of us.

Some (new?) color related voting going on over at Eurobricks. Not sure if it's directly related to what's already been going on.
