New theme?

Hey guys! After being inspired by Jonotron K's recent "Search and Rescue Hover"

http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/91316

it seemed like a cool idea if the Nostalgia Factory made it's own theme: Space Rescue! To pay tribute to the great man (and just to make some more spaceships...)

Any thoughts?

Nice idea ! It's true that the theme rocks !
However, maybe Jonotron should give us his opinion ???

Indeed. It's his idea after all. It wouldn't be fair to steal his theme: that's not the Nostalgia Factory way! :D

Actually, in October 2007, I had started to prepare an own subtheme in LDraw with a similar background (but more like "ambulance in space", with a white-red-light grey + trans-red colour scheme); but after the first whole and the next two half vehicles, I've somehow stopped working on it since.

I wouldn't be opposed to contributing to group themes (e.g. deciding on a colour scheme, possibly some interchangeable components several models might feature, and on a purpose of the theme (something more concrete than just a cool-sounding name ;-) )), but this (as well as my aforementioned own medical space service subtheme) brings me to the general question as to how far custom subthemes will be acceptable in this group ... I guess, as long as they're LEGO Space inspired, whatever that means?

Of course, new subthemes would be an interesting adventure for everyone. I think each of us could present a personnal theme and the others could get inspired by.Or one person give the story and one MOC on a new theme, and then everyone add a MOC on this theme. It's up to you guys, let's see what could be the most interesting for everyone :-)

Oh man, I can't keep up with anything else! Personal themes are always interesting, some people really pull them off well. I thought I was going to continue a theme before but didn't even commit enough to it to give it a name... I should be finished with my version of SPIII fairly soon (it was on the verge of completion before I got sidetracked by Blacktron and now would be the perfect time since I'm waiting for a BL order anyway).

Wow, thanks for the props, Shannon. Sorry I dropped the ball on this. I need to work on my web awareness. Anyway, I'd love to collaborate on a theme at some point and Space Rescue is a great idea. I've been searching for a more positive twist to put on MOCs that can be cool without being violent. Like, is there any other kind of mech besides a battle mech or a racing mech? I guess rescue is kinda like mining...anyway my mind is running now. I'm kinda busy at the moment, but i hope you'll keep this open in your mind for the future. this is an open invite to all group members as well. thanks for the honors...

I think themes that derive from any of the LEGO Space themes are a good idea. In fact it is my own Space Cargo Team as an extension to the Futuron Monorail set that led me to join this group. As for the “look and feel” part of a theme, it can be expressed in little things as well as an overall color scheme. I am currently using LEGO’s Digital Designer and have decided to limit myself to the current brick and color pallets. Given that this meant there were no 1x2 “arrow” tiles to use to indicate the opening doors on the cargo boxes I chose to use a matched set of yellow and black 1x2 tiles instead. These same tiles are used to indicate the opening of the hatch & landing ramp on my Cargo Craft spaceship. The same colors are used to indicate that the “clamps” which hold the cargo boxes into the ship open as well. I did draw from the original monorail’s color scheme and shape – note the placement of the blue transparent cones. Adapting themes from the past, both mechanically and stylistically, into what can be built with LEGO sets today seems to me a good way to keep the nostalgia alive. I’m looking forward to more information on Space Rescue.
