Which retired set should be re-released next?

Posted by ,

Last year's announcement that 10189 Taj Mahal would be returning, as 10256 Taj Mahal, elicited considerable discussion surrounding which past model may be re-released next. The subsequent return of 4999 Vestas Wind Turbine has inspired further speculation on this subject.

It now seems likely that LEGO will continue to re-release desirable sets from the past, much to the delight of many fans. That intriguing revelation begs the question: which retired set should be re-released next? We are asking Brickset readers to submit suggestions in the comments and will publish a poll based upon your responses in the near future.

When submitting your suggestion, please bear in mind that both 10256 Taj Mahal and 10268 Vestas Wind Turbine have been released as part of the Creator Expert theme. Future sets will probably be categorised similarly, excluding certain themes from consideration.

For the purposes of this article, a re-release is being defined as follows:

  • Direct re-release - A product intended to match an earlier set as closely as possible, albeit with some occasional revisions based upon the availability of parts or colours. (10001 Metroliner, 10256 Taj Mahal)

We look forward to reading your responses!

I think it would be awesome if we could get back 10181 Eiffel Tower imo.

By in United Kingdom,

Surely the 6399 monorail is long overdue a re release, it could be updated to include new power functions

By in Denmark,

I think it will be some of the older modular building perhaps 10182 Cafe Corner or 10190 Marked Street.

By in United States,

The 10181-1: Eiffel Tower would be cool!

By in United States,

I've seen 10228 Haunted House in some comments recently.
Personally I would like 10229 winter village cottage, 10222 winter village post office, and 10216 winter village bakery to make my village complete.
Mind as well throw 10001 metroliner in there.
Oh and it goes without saying, make every modular building available again.

10181 Eiffel Tower , after market prices are obscene.

And certainly improvements can be made to a set that is over 11 years old

10210 - Imperial Flagship

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Green Grocer. A modular that looks stunning and involves interesting building techniques, and has some interior to match the focus on interior for recent releases. It seems to be a strong market for it as well - it is higly desired by people who for different reasons did not get their hands on it, and it is now way too expensive to get on the secondary market.

Eiffel Tower needs a modern redesign though. A straight-up remake would be disappointing.

Imperial Flagship gets my vote. Such a beautiful ship.

I think one of the early modulars or haunted house would be awesome. The Eiffel tower and 787 Dreamliner need modern redesigns to look closer to the source material.

704 - 12V Sleeper (Track) Contacts for Old Motor Type I and II so that I finally can replace the used ones on my old 12V trains. And the 9V trainmotor. Fans ought to be able to service their 4,5V, 9V and 12V trains in a decent way, although they've become obsolete for a while...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Imperial Flagship for sure is one I would love to 'sea' again. I never got it the first time it came out, and would love to grab it on a second release.

I already own the first release of the Emerald Night, but I would support a re-release just for the sake of having those darn train windows in tan! Maybe add a sticker sheet to it with some alternate numbering, so if it was re-released it would be possible to label it a different name and number than the original engine.

The one that would benefit the most is cafe corner. Since the original did not have an interior...the new one could include that and be a mix of something old and something new

Please remember that we are only considering direct re-releases for this poll, as defined in the above article. Significantly updated versions of past sets cannot therefore be taken into consideration as they are not true 're-releases'.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Either the Emerald Night, Horizon Express (but with power functions), or one of the monorails from the 90s.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I have to agree with the people siding with the Emerald Night. Easily the best train Lego has produced, and it was released around the same time that the already re-released Taj Mahal and Vestas Wind Rurbine originated from.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Without a doubt, 10182 - Cafe Corner (with a finished interior). The following year, 10190 - Market Street (with a finished interior). I believe there are lot of modular collectors out there that didn't jump on the ship until after these sets were already released. If they are like me, they can't afford the huge, exorbitant prices of these on the secondary market.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Any of the modulars or the Eiffel Tower

Imperial Flagship definitely gets my vote!

If we are just talking big sets:

3450 Statue Of Liberty for me perhaps with the base as well?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I agree with the person who mentioned Marina Bay Sands, I desperately want it to complete my architecture collection. I would also like a rerelease of the ucs Grievous or tumbler, as I missed on both of those. Besides that, Id love rereleases of the action themes from when I was young, like power miners, but that would obviously be unlikely to occur.

No re-releases! Progress in design, so new sets, and keep collectables limited.

By in Slovakia,

10194 Emerald Night

Gravatar
By in United States,

10194 Emerald Night is the one I absolutely would have purchased at retail had I known it would be going for 4-5 times it's original price now. It's a gorgeous set and as far as I'm concerned, the best looking train Lego has produced.

10210 Imperial Flagship and 10193 Medieval Market Village would be the next two on my list. Again, just great looking sets with a lot of value for the price point.

Probably an unpopular opinion, but I think a set should be out of production for at least 7 or 8 years before they consider bringing it back. I bought the original Winter Village Toy Shop in 2012 after it had been OOP for a year, hoping to avoid a situation like we have now with Emerald Night, so I was a little miffed when they brought it back so soon in 2015. With that said, I'll also take what we can get!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Everyone asking for a remake of cafe corner: we have it. It's called one side of assembly square.

The problem with so many of these suggestions is that systems to build them are unavailable - e.g. the UCS ISD needs magnets, which Lego no longer makes. I'd love an Emerald Night rerelease but I worry that they'd have to update it to work with the new battery system.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Me personal pick would be the 10231 Shuttle Expedition or the 8043 Motorized Excavator. Other re-releases I'd like to see are the 10214 Tower Bridge and the 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van.

Like other people mentioned, the 10181 Eiffel Tower and the 10177 Boeing 787 Dreamliner are good candidates, but personally I think their style is very outdated. I would like to see them released as remakes rather than direct re-releases.

EDIT: just noticed 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van is still available. Didn't think there would be a set in production for 7 years.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Doubt I'd ever be able to afford it, but I'd love to see a rerelease of the old Rebel Blockade Runner. It was, I believe, the first Star Wars UCS set ever, so it would certainly be a significant enough set to be worth it.

Or brick-built Yoda... but he'd need to be seriously updated. Still, with the progress in capturing organic shapes that the Porg demonstrated, I have to wonder what the outcome would be if they tried him again now.

Gravatar

I believe that a re- release of the black- seas barracuda is in order.

10228 Haunted House

And of course any of the classic modular buildings. I’d add any of these sets I’ve mentioned to my collection in a heartbeat.

LEGO Pirates Imperial Flagship (10210)

Gravatar
By in United States,

OK, fine. If we're talking about a re-release, how about 10228 Haunted House?

Gravatar
By in United States,

We absolutely need a re-release of 7115 Gungan Patrol. It was a small, quiet Star wars set but it would make a superb D2C set.

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

From the Creator Expert line (and its previous incarnations) I think it is actually possible to narrow down what is plausible to re release.

First it should be noted that they seem to be re releasing sets from a particular time period - around 2008. I think anything significantly older or significantly newer is not plausible.

Sets mentioned such as trains with older power systems are unlikely to be re-released - they could require significant design changes to accommodate PF or PU.

I think a modular building is unlikely to be re released. The most desirable one is obviously Cafe Corner but that has issues with parts changes. Green Grocer and Fire Brigade are possible but then everyone would be complaining why did you not re-release CC. As the series is still in production I also think this is not plausible.

Remember aswell they are not going to re-release a set similar to a current set - for example 10196 Carousel or 10187 Bettle would not. This also applies to 10155,10173 to various extents.

Turning to what I actually think is more plausible from this era:

10181 Eiffel Tower (2007)
10194 Emerald Night (2009)
10210 Imperial Flagship (2010)

So I think its actually a narrow enough list on that front. However thats not to say they will go for something completely random again like Vestas.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

They've said they can't do monorail because the rail moulds are scrapped and would cost €1m each to replace. But, it always struck me as kinda odd that the monorail track was as wide as the train riding on top, so perhaps this is their chance to re-do the monorail set but with a different track.

Gravatar
By in United States,

10224 Town Hall would be fantastic.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@ dna2: That's harsh, Lego's MSRP's over here are already double of what would be sensible, so you guys pay four times that!

Also, if it's any consolation to you, neither set turned out to be complete ...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@CreativeTim : 10220 is actually still around.....

Gravatar
By in United States,

Maybe some old Star Wars vehicles could be remade such as the V19 torrent. I am also open to remakes of some larger architecture sets the Eiffel Tower would be fun.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

The ones I would find really desirable will never be rereleased due to all the old parts not being available anymore, i.e. some of the Classic Space sets as well as classic Pirates, Castle, etc. from the 1980s that I missed out on and that are extremely hard to come by nowadays.

The three younger desirables I missed out on the first time I have now got thanks to Lepin, i.e. Green Grocer, Haunted House, Queen Anne.

That being said, I would love a rerelease of 41999. I know Lepin has that one on offer as well, but when it comes to Technic sets I would never go for a clone brand. They just can't get Technic parts quite right.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Any modular released prior to the fire station and any large pirate ship.

Gravatar
By in United States,

On further thought, the Imperial Flagship 10210, Medieval Market Village 10193, or Town Hall 10224 would all be my top three choices, in that order ??

The large Bat-Pod set. One that I can just buy at MSRP, this time. And this time throw in the SDCC 2011 Batman minifig with a nameplate.

Gravatar

For me it would have to be the early modulars, closely followed by #10027 Engine Shed. and the 10183 Hobby Trains Seeing all the love for Emerald Night made me glad I got it before it was retired.

got to be cafe corner or green corner - any of the early modulars would sell like hot cakes...

Gravatar
By in Finland,

While there's many sets that I would like to get second chance with, 10182 Cafe Corner is THE one that got away. It was just released when I was entering dark ages, but being a teen, I had ton of other things to waste 150€ or so than nice Lego building. Then again, I rarely had that sort of money to begin with. I did see it as monumental set, and regret not getting one to this day. So 10182 Cafe Corner gets my vote

Gravatar
By in United States,

It would be cool to have a re-released tantive 4.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I don't expect any of these will have a re-release because they're mostly playsets, but here we go:
Medieval market village
Mill village raid
City Farm (and accompanying sets)
Fort Legoredo
LEGO Dragon (the big buidalble one)

Some Monorai.
Emerald Night

The set I wish I had bought at least three of - Emerald Night - the best train ever. Too many other pressing priorities at the time I guess. And of course, no matter how unrealistic, any monorail set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Monorail and Imperial Flagship are my picks.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Fallingwater or one of the modulars, for preference. But really, as long as it's not Star Wars, I don't care.

Gravatar
By in United States,

People, people, re-releasing a set means that there are no significant changes (like adding an interior to a modular structure such as Cafe Corner or Green Grocer). For those wishing upon a star in the form of the Eiffel Tower of Statue of Liberty go check out the current line up of Architecture sets. There’s pretty much zero chance of either one of those being re-released as a large set anytime soon. The Emerald Night seems like a plausible idea since there is no licensing requirements to produce it. The only issue is that Lego trains do not appeal to a wide enough audience due to the necessity of room to make them run. Honestly, the Haunted House is probably the best and most likely production idea from the suggestions that I have seen here so far. Well that and the Imperial Flagship. Oh yeah, and one more thing, NO MORE RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED STAR WARS SHIPS! Thanks but no thanks. There’s already way too many Star Wars sets out there.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Monorail or Emerald night but then again I will want a monorail

Gravatar
By in United States,

Though there be many vintage sets that I wish could return, here are the ones I want from the Advanced Models line.

MY #1 CHOICE IS 10194 EMERALD NIGHT!!!!!

After that, my second choice is 10184 Town Plan.

Gravatar
By in Puerto Rico,

For me I would choose some below or near the $100 price tag:
-7747 Windturbine Transport;
-motorized AT-AT;
-Star Destroyer;
-Indian western villages;
-Adventurers Zepelin.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Medieval market village would be my choice as well. I own this set and it’s amazingly lovely! Would buy another copy instantly! Haunted house is another one I own, but could see them redo. I think the modulars aren’t that likely to be rereleased in the same pattern as they’re rereleasing Taj Mahal and Wind Turbine, cause it’s so close to the release schedule for the modular line.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Can't say that I'd want anything as a direct re-release. I'm not a completionist so even things I don't own like green grocer or cafe corner don't interest me when compared to newer modular designs. I'm not buying the Taj Mahal, for example. Now, if they'd update them, I'd definitely buy.

Maybe the farm theme is recent enough it could pass without updates? I'd love more adventurers or Last Airbender sets but they're too outdated now to interest me directly.

By in United Kingdom,

I'm going to have to go with 10210: Imperial Flagship purely from the perspective that it's one of the few sets that doesn't look out of place against modern sets.

A lot of the other sets that are listed above, whilst excellent sets in there time, could be done better now with modern bricks and build techniques so l would rather have a modified version instead of a re-release.

Maybe the older village winter sets or maybe the 10184 Town Plan.

For me, Classic Castles. One of the best lines ever made by LEGO.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Monorail (6399 - Airport Shuttle), of course.
What else?
We want the Airport Shuttle in 2019!!

By the way TLG starts to work on a new City Monorail theme in 2019... And later they could use these rail tracks in some Creator, or Friends sets.

aleydita - €1m for replace the rail moulds? WOW!! I shocked.
I think the 4D Brix using 3D printing to make brick-compatible rail tracks, in 3 different colours. A 32 studs long and 4 studs wide track webshop price is USD12.50.

By in Spain,

Firtst I want to thank you Lego for this policy, aftermarket was crazy and the re-releases should be changing minds (death star, millenium falcon, etc.)

Haunted House for me, please. Just keep it below 200€. It will even ease bricklinking Green Grocer with all that sand green floating around and there are several examples of it being "modularized".

If it must be an 10xxx Set, I'd say Shuttle Exploration, despite I already own it.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Since it has not been mentioned: 7888 The Jokers ice cream surprise. That set was out way too short and it commands absurd prices now. Though if lego just releases the pink brackets in some regular friends set, I might be able to build it.

Same goes for 76039-1: Ant-Man Final Battle.

And I don't care about the whining: monorail. Figure it out, TLG! With normal straight tracks. And that trick crossing switch you got a patent for but never made. Buy the company that made them if you have to.

You know what? even remaking them with rollercoaster track might be an idea.

I think I agree with Café Corner with proper interior, or Emerald Night.
(I also agree with Monorail, even though I know it doesn't match the criteria)
Edit: I think what stopped me from buying the Emerald Night the first time was that it only came with one carriage and no easy way to get another. I'd like to see something like the Emerald Night return, but with maybe add-on packs for extra carriages. Actually, even a complete recolouring of the Emerald Night would be nice, with a few detail changes, that way anyone who already has the Emerald Night could display it alongside the new one.

If we're talking realistic (that is, Creator sets that have been out of production for more than five or six years), then the early modulars pre-Emporium would be potential goldmines for LEGO to put out again.

If we're talking any old set that was discontinued more recently, 9465 The Zombies is my ridiculous wish. That set was stupidly limited in output, and I never got my hands on it.

As far as Monorail is concerned - of which I would of course love to see a re-release - it has been pointed out in a dedicated forum discussion a few months back that it would be very unlikely for Monorail to come back to life. The reason: it would be way too expensive to reproduce tracks. Furthermore, it seems there isn't enough demand out there to justify investments for a Monorail comeback.

A quick countdown of the comments posted here does instead depict a totally different scenario, with Monorail being one of the most voted sets for re-release.

Monorail (1990!) has been an excellent example of what Lego is all about: creativity, innovation, design, architectural flexibility, sturdiness. Those unforgettable sets have entertained Lego fans of all ages and they're still out there running, joy and pride of a handful of lucky owners.

In TLG's shoes, I would strongly reconsider the idea of ruling Monorail dead and gone. Investing in Forma is the future? Fine, but sets like 6399, 6990, 6991 have definitely made Lego history: they deserve a second life. And I'm sure track production wouldn't be such an issue for TLG. If a 3D printer can do it, why can't they?

What else but 10182 Cafe Corner? I missed out on a lot of great modular buildings, but Cafe Corner is the only one that I actually really regret having been unable to obtain while it was out all those years ago. I don't even care if they add any interior details with the re-release or not. It's just such an iconic model, and I'm sure many newcoming modular collectors would appreciate the opportunity to own it.

10018: Darth Maul
Seem random? YEP! But 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of LEGO Star Wars and had Episode I not been coming out, what are the chances that LEGO Star Wars would even be a thing? Plus, there's no reason for that set to cost $600 because people want $200 for the instructions, and four curved panel pieces at $40 a piece. Plus, there's a bit of Darth Maul hype with Solo: A Star Wars Story, soooo...

Cafe Corner would need to be completely redone as the door and ski pieces above the door haven't been made in a decade. So it would need to be a redone set with new ideas and pieces (like windows).

Is it's just original LEGO sets, then I'll say the Emerald Night. A gorgeous train and a lot of fond memories staring at the Catalogs.

It's kind of heartening to see so many people suggesting a train rerelease.

As much as I'd like to see the Metroliner (or, more to the point, the club car) again, that'd be the third time, and I don't think they'd do that. It'd be more likely a set that hasn't already been rereleased (like Emerald Night or the Horizon Express).

Black Seas Barracuda or the monorail also spring unbidden to mind.

Much as I'd love to see 497/928 Galaxy Explorer... redesign needed for old style angled plates, remoulding needed for 'crater base-plates' and a host of other fiddly little adjustments rules the whole line out, when compared to any potential sales margin.

I think a better idea, for direct sales, would be Service Packs. Fill the gap between pick-a-brick and Basic sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gotta be the 10182 Cafe Corner. I know a lot of people missed out on that during its first run, myself included. Although I drooled over it in the catalog forever lol. Didn't start collecting the modulars until I got the Pet Shop for Christmas one year, and I've been collecting ever since (a couple years behind, but I've been getting them before LEGO retires them). A Cafe Corner rerelease would be very welcome. Doesn't matter to me if they release it exactly as was, or with a few modifications. As I understand it, it didn't have as many interior details as the more recent modulars have had, so maybe they could add to the interior.

I'd welcome any old modular as much as the next man although the interiors of the old sets would be quite underwhelming nowadays. Even if we expand Creator Expert to Advanced Models, I see very little motivation for a re-release next year. Still, +1 for Emerald Night.

As Disney's moneymaker leader has been extended for another 3 years, I'd guess a UCS re-release is imminent (maybe a Star Destroyer) but still very unlikely.

Whatever it will be - I'm saving my wallet for the new Lego Movie sets instead!

What is the set with the highest value on the market these day , in terms of original price and value now? I am really curious how many units lego sold from 10256. Instead of re-releasing constumer sets. Start bringing out the sets from the inside tour , promotional sets or the sets that the lego employees get. With these sets you know for certain there are a lot of potential Byers. To rerealese the monorail looks like a good idea, but the only thing I want is more tracks.
The one thing I truly hope is that Lego will produce the chemical plant(lego Ideas) because that is really something new.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I should be perfectly happy with the 6399 monorail...

Gravatar
By in Germany,

If I have only one vote I would give it to the Imperial Flagship or Emerald Night. But to share my full list in order of my personal preference:

10210 Imperial Flagship
10194 Emerald Night
10229 Winter Village Cottage
10029 Lunar Lander
10020 Santa Fe Super Chief
10024 Red Baron
10124 Wright Flyer
10226 Sopwith Camel
10193 Medieval Market Village
10219 Maersk Train

After researching the special sets I come to the conclusion that Lego its completely missing many of the themes that made it so appealing and easy to branch out your displays.
Most of these models are completely unthinkable because their themes are dead and you would need to buy countless things on secondary markets for horrendous prices or used.

Imperial Flagship is pointless without Pirates to fight.
Emerald Night is unthinkable with the current train assortment.
Medieval Market Village makes no sense without other Castle sets.

And that's why I assume the next rerelease will just be Cafe Corner or Eiffel Tower.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

All of them. And each should include a small vial containing the tears of all the resellers whose profits have been slashed overnight.

I know this is an unique and unpopular opinion, but I will still let my voice heard if it gives the slightest of chance, even just a slim glimmer of hope for obtaining my white whale, the set I foolishly missed out on as it got a mayfly-life release in my dark ages and then vanished forever after its fifteen minutes in the limelight: the elusive, the magnificent, the grandiose, the non-bricklinkable

Market street, it’s the only modular I don’t have. I’d be surprised if they re-released green grocer or cafe corner as they are both empty inside, but updated versions would be greatly welcomed with interiors kitted out. Imperial flagship would also be cool.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Like so many others I wish the Eiffel Tower could be re-released (even in its original form, although a facelift would be a nice extra), just like the Emerald Night (which only saw once on sale when I was in NY as a tourist; I have never seen the set in my country) and the Airport Shuttle (although it's not very realistic for reasons mentioned above and the fact that it belongs to a theme).

Apart from that, updates of SW UCS sets are always welcome; a new ISD or larger AT-AT would be terrific.

By in Spain,

Let's make a list from Brickset. Sorting sets by "Total number wanted", and keeping only those with more than 6000 votes, here is what you get ("# Wanted" in brackets):

10182 Cafe Corner (10462)
10185 Green Grocer (10070)
10179 Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon (9354)
10221 Super Star Destroyer (7939)
10212 Imperial Shuttle (7854)
10224 Town Hall (7551)
10197 Fire Brigade (7448)
10188 Death Star (7386)
10211 Grand Emporium (7234)
10198 Tantive IV (6882)
10030 Imperial Star Destroyer (6779)
10236 Ewok Village (6527)
75059 Sandcrawler (6285)
10143 Death Star II (6273)
10190 Market Street (6224)
10195 Republic Dropship with AT-OT Walker (6080)
10243 Parisian Restaurant (6069)

No surprises here: 41% modular buildings, 59% Star Wars (mainly UCS). Extending the list to more than 5000 "Wanted", we get 19 more sets, but with the same distribution.

The only logical choice is Cafe Corner. LEGO teased us with the box of it in assembly square. I thought assembly square would be the last modular, & Cafe Corner and the other 2 oldest ones would be released next year, but alas: Downtown Diner.

I don't doubt that retooling the monorail track would be expensive, but more expensive than the new roller coaster tracks? Maybe if the fish do well on indiegogo then Lego will consider a similar campaign with the monorail and let people vote with their wallets.

By in United States,

@Phathead:
You realize this is just a fan poll, right? It's not like TLC is sponsoring this poll to determine which set to rerelease next year.

@rslotb:
If TLC was awarded the patent for something, they would never have to buy another company to produce that thing. Either they still have an active patent (and could sue anyone who infringes on it), or the patent has expired and anyone can produce them without legal complications. And the company that's producing new monorail parts is 3D-printing them, which is a _sloooooow_ process that produces parts that aren't as clean looking as injection-molded parts.

@Navy Trooper Fenson:
There are many port cities and towns that have resident "tall ships" that people can tour, and which periodicaly get leased for period films like PotC, so it would be possible to work the Imperial Flagship into a modern town display without it looking out of place (all the crew are in period-authentic costumes).
There are many legacy trains still in operation for historical purposes, like the Pere Marquette that was used as the basis for the Polar Express design, and the Train theme tends to switch between different engine styles quite often.
Medieval Market could also work as a Ren Faire setting.

@SirZed:
Huh? The rarest element in that is the spider, which came in seven sets and has 158 current listings on Bricklink. Even 4071-1 Bottles has tons of Coca-Cola sticker sheets, and just enough trans-clear 1x1 cones available to make two full models (if you're willing to buy Used), and of that wave of sets I'd consider that to be the least Bricklinkable. Both are quite easy to buy as sealed sets.

The Haunted house, any/all of the modulars, any/all of the winter village sets. Basically any creator expert set.

By in Canada,

@dingbat591: You took the words right out of my mouth!
Monorail! Monorail! MONORAIL!! :))

I found this: "According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price index, prices in 2018 are 92.92% higher than prices in 1990. The dollar experienced an average inflation rate of 2.70% per year during this period.

In other words, $140 in 1990 is equivalent in purchasing power to $270.09 in 2018, a difference of $130.09 over 28 years.

The 1990 inflation rate was 5.40%. The current inflation rate (2017 to 2018) is now 2.70%1. If this number holds"

So the 6399's price was $140 in 1990, it's equivalent in purchasing power to $270 (in this year). The TLG ask USD299 for the re-released 6399 - but I could and I can pay $349, or $399 for it too, I don't mind it.

By the way I really don't understand clearly, what's the main idea behind FORMA theme...
TLG has to re-release old sets frequently, e.g. 4-6 times a year.
One from Town/City, one from Star Wars, one from Trains, one from Classic Space, one from Creator, one from Technic, etc.

No Imperial Flagship. Lego just has to come up with an even better one (and they probably will).

It would probably be the 10195-1: Republic Dropship with AT-OT Walker as it has been 10 years (last release was 2009) and it coincides with the return of the Clone Wars series. Depends on how much Disney is gonna milk it. Might be a AUD 400- 500 set though :(

For non-SW set, it could probably be the 10194: Emerald Night with the new powerup functions. that set has such great demand in the used and second hand market plus it is iconic.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would like the original pirate sets from 1989 - 1994 re-released, with the following upgrades:
1) Mini-figures with decorations on the front & back of the torso, and on the leg pieces
2) A greater variety of sea animals, such as sea turtles, jellyfish, dolphins, seals, hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks, flatfish, stingrays, eels
3) Ship hull pieces that have striations and variations in their coloring, to make them look closer to real wood
4) All plastic sails that don't rip or tear
5) Light-up pieces that flicker like fire light. In this way, the ships can be lit up at night.
6) The minifigures for each set are unique to that one set. So no Captain Redbeard in multiple sets; i.e. each ship has its own unique captain and crew.
7) All the ships come with the big square blue baseplates, except with wave patterns on them to make them look like the actual ocean surface.

For those counting, 10214 Tower Bridge is still available to most markets since October 2010 - even eclipsing 10188 Death Star's & 10220 VW Camper Van's length of availability!

By in United Kingdom,

Yes this is a "wish" list thread, but 10228 Haunted House is surely not happening for several reasons.

It was only deleted around October-December 2014, so has barely been gone 4 years. With the exception of the Winter Toy Shop (smaller scale and part of an ongoing line), the re-releases so far have been of sets about ten years old.

None of them have meant the return of a theme either. Taj Mahal and the wind-turbine are standalone sets and/or part of the ever-present 'Creator Expert' line. The Death Star is part of the Star Wars theme that obviously never went, nor is going, away.

"Monster Hunters" wasn't even a long-running theme and in the scheme of things didn't sell that well, despite its popularity with AFOLs (myself included).

As stated above more than once, there are pieces in Cafe Corner that DON'T EXIST ANYMORE. One of the biggest reasons the Vestas and Taj Mahal can be rereleased to begin with is that the parts still exist, either in their original mould or modified (jumper plates and hollow studs vs. solid on the dish pieces) but not to a degree where they can't be subbed in. CC's front door and side doors haven't been made in over a decade, and the skis are the old hinged style that ceased production in 2011. The sign won't work with the new hingeless skis, and the doors are 1x4x5; modern door pieces are 1x4x6 frames. I hate to rain on anyone's parade but a direct rerelease of Cafe Corner is far, far less likely than the Green Grocer.

Green Grocer please! I wouldn’t mind a redo of the corner cafe with an actual interior.

I personally think the Boeing 747 Dreamliner could be a good rerelease. I think most of the parts are still in production and it was a somewhat obscure set like the 4999 Turbine.

All I really want is the 10030 ISD - however, I don't want a remake, I want a new upgraded model.
Lego's techniques get better and better, so would much prefer newer models of what most people have mentioned here, over remakes.

All the monorail talk is giving me a Simpsons flashback:)

Seriously though: Galaxy Explorer for sure, Space Cruiser maybe (and esp. if TLG updated the space uniforms/suits, more like the CMF styled ones, but w/colors).

Then either Knight's Joust, or Knight's Challenge, and of those two; I'd prefer 'Joust's "Visiors"/Faceplates, but new version would have to be done to work with the new helmets. Keep 'proper' horses though:D.

10181-1: Eiffel Tower, updated. Every modular city will need one.

By in Australia,

I want a reissue of the 8169 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 (was never able to get this one although I did get the blue police Lambo). LEGO has a fairly strong relationship with Volkswagen Auto Group (who own Lamborghini) so a re-release of this set (or a new Lambo set) is something they could probably do. The fact that the original could be built as either the hardtop or the spyder was pretty cool as well and that would be a must-have in any re-issue.

The Star Justice and Space Skulls sets would be great re-releases as well (especially the Space Skulls which I was never able to pick up when it was new). The Exo Suit was the last time LEGO did a decent Space set so a re-issue of these would be a great idea for Space fans (those who missed out the first time, those who want more parts/figs/etc and those who just weren't around when the originals came out)

I do agree with those asking for the 787 to be re-done, that was another one I missed out on (although I do agree a modern version with modern building techniques would be better than a direct re-make in the same way the current VW beetle is better than the old VW beetle that used the very blocky building techniques)

Interesting to read through what everyone would like to see re-issued.

I came out of the dark ages around 2012, so missed out on most of the sets pre 2010-2011.

Having said that though I fell in love with Green Grocer and the Cafe Corner, kept a keen eye on these on Bricklink and purchased the Cafe Corner I think it would have been 2013/2014 for $750 and the Green Grocer for $380 (this had missing parts, not too many luckily), do I regret paying that, not at all I could see if I was to leave it longer they were only going to get more expensive.

10020 Santa Fe I like but I can live without it, 10177 Boeing 787 also I like but you really could make with bricks we must all have in our loose bricks, as there's nothing too out of the ordinary to copy, apart from the engines, so would have to come up with something a bit different for that?

10181 Eiffel Tower I like but I don't like it enough to chase after it. If this was re-released yes I'd buy but that's the only way.

10182 I have and I wouldn't be able to live without this set, it is an absolutely must have, however having said that I would pick the 10185 over it, the Green Grocer would always be my first choice I love this set and it has sentimental value, my family's back ground were green grocer's, so that is why I would have to have this set. Plus I absolutely love this set.

Move onto the 10190 Market Street, I don't particular like this set, and I can go past this one as it wasn't technically designed by a Lego Staff Member as a actual Lego Set. Having said that, I feel this started the whole Modular buildings so I'm happy for that and also branching out in to incorporating the whole Lego Ideas theme, also a winner.

10193 Medieval Market Village, great set beautifully done, and luckily I have this one, so this would also be in my vote for a revamp.

10194 Emerald Night also really like this set but unless this was re-released out of my price range, so would purchase if re-issued

10210 Imperial Flagship also another one if re-issued I'd purchase, love this set, there's nothing I don't like, it looks amazing.

10228 Haunted House, I hummed and hawed on whether to purchase but glad I did, another really nice set.

So overall my list would be:-
10185 - Green Grocer
10182 - Cafe Corner
10210 - Imperial Flagship
10194 - Emerald Night
10228 - Haunted House
10193 - Medieval Market Village
10181 - Eiffel Tower
10020 - Santa Fe Super Chief
10177 - Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Brickset No's that still want the following sets:-
10182 - Cafe Corner (10486)
10185 - Green Grocer (10090)
10190 - Market Street (6235)
10210 - Imperial Flagship (5219)
10228 - Haunted House (4946)
10193 - Medieval Market Village (4474)
10181 - Eiffel Tower (4160)
10194 - Emerald Night (3935)
10177 - Boeing 787 Dreamliner (2210)
10020 - Santa Fe Super Chief (1631)

Going by the members wish list in Brickset, Cafe Corner and Green Grocer are leading compared to the rest in the list, it really drops in numbers to the next one in the list being the Market Street.

10194 - Emerald Night or the 10185 Green Grocer would be two I'd love to see. I really don't understand the decision to re-release the Taj Mahal or in fact the almost direct copy of the Winter Toy Shop. Not too worried about Cafe Corner, I have one and Market Street is an ugly set.

Regret missing out on so many sets over the years because I didn’t have financial means then.
10020 - Santa Fe Super Chief tops the list even though I was an avid Lego Train enthusiast but had to budget. Still could kick myself for not buying metroliner also at TRU 25+ years ago.

I would really like to see set #KT206-1 - Large Train Engine with Tender Brown. I have always wanted this set.
