Western Town - Pif Paf City

created by kris_kelvin on 2012.02.09

Main Section
First of all it`s not my intention to compete with Marshal.
I`d want to support his idea showing Lego that we can have decent Lego Western Town and there are more AFOLs thinking and supporting this with another ideas.

Yes it could be and should modular town. Mine is modular too. Train Station is on two baseplates 32x32, Saloon is on one baseplate, and Hotel is on another.
It would be not good to just copy "Modular building" line. First of all buildings should be smaller with some buildings bigger. For example:
- General Store - one floor building with 500-600 pieces, Saloon two floors with 1000 pieces, big Train Station with 1500 pieces, Jail one floor with 600 pieces ect, ect...
Lego could make one big building in one year (for example big western train station) and two smaller buildings in another year or two buildings (like in Pet Shop) in one set - Sheriff Office and Jail. Plus we can have smaller sets like stagecoach, or pioneer wagon. We can have western train ect, ect.

I think it could be fantastic for us AFOLs and profitable for Lego. And after three or four years we could have fantastic small wild west town wid decent buildings and vehicles.

So we can have:
-Train Station
- Saloon
- Hotel
- Drug Store
- General Store
- Sheriff Office
- Jail
- Bank
- Town buildings...

After 15 years I think we can have new Western line build with new pieces and techniques.


I built it two years ago by the way.
Enjoy.

Maybe we, AFOLs are not like Minecraft community but we can try :D
It could be fantastic line :)

Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project

2013.03.20

First, congratulations on achieving over 1,600 supporters for your project. You have created some beautifully detailed models for your Pif Paf City. Unfortunately, the theme of this project conflicts with a current license and we cannot consider it for production.

This decision of course takes nothing away from the great models and presentation you have here--they're outstanding. We're sorry to disappoint.

Opening ourselves to new product suggestions invites popular ideas that don't always work. We are grateful for the spirit behind projects like the Western Town - Pif Paf City, and for the opportunity to be challenged. It keeps us sharp and looking toward the future of the LEGO brick.

The LEGO CUUSOO Team


Note: If your idea is selected, the LEGO Group will make the final decision on how your proposed product should be produced, the final design, applicable licenses, production run size, sales channels, etc. Please understand that our comments here do not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.
