Autumn foliage

Postby Quickblade22 » Sat Nov 24, 2007 9:00 pm

I'm sure someone else has thought of this, but I just thought I'd reinterate it. It'd be nice to have the leaf pieces in colors like orange, dark red, or even yellow. With the resorces that are avaliable now, it would be cool to have these options. What do all you guys think?

Good idea DNL, but it'd have to be in a different color brown so it doesn't blend in. Also, how about marbled colored leaf pieces? That would work too, especially for snow covered ones. While I was discussing this with another AFOL, I got an idea that light pink would work too for cherry blossom trees. Think of some cool Japanese Mocs that some of you could make.

These in different colours? I think if they were painted the same colours mentioned here they'd be great for autumn trees.

Those are exactly what I was talking about, as well as the smaller ones. With all the great builders here, it would be awesome to see what would transpire. I've seen the brick built ones, but they just don't have the same appeal to me. The only other problem I could see is that you'd have to have some leaves on the ground. I think 1x1 plates in autumn colors might pass for them.

I've been waiting and waiting for more colors of the leaf parts. The white and dark green give me hope!

We did talk about fall color leaves in several old threads:

We would like palm tree packs, folliage leaf packs (with large and small leaves) in green and fall colors, flowers and stems, etc.


A few years ago I made an images of possible fall leaf colors:

Oh Man. Oh Man.

Please.

I love this notion, and have thought about it many times. As Chris pointed out, the white and dark green leaf peices do seem to be a sign that the LEGO company might produce peices such as these.

Those look great Ben. I hadn't seen those before. Hopefully someone in the company has taken notice of it especially since you're an ambassador. I often wonder why some pieces aren't made in certain colors. Well, the good news is that besides the new dark green and white pieces, TLG seems to be taking more note of what the customers want.

Aha! N00b! :P

(Internal jokes aside, back to topic!)

I can only agree with the others here. I know for sure that I would by tons if they were available.

I'm still waiting for the green ones to be available in some degree of regularity. I love the idea of being able to model the seasons, but right now, the ability to simply model trees is something alot of builders don't have.

I walked right into that one. :P

Alright, that's agreeable as well. I think it's one of the reasons the forestmen and particularly the Camoflague Outpost is so dear to me, the leaf pieces. Legofreak stated the same thing about the desire for more of this piece, so lets add the other colors into the plea as well. So TLC, please don't leaf us hanging. :lol:

Earth Orange or Dark Orange, in addition to Reddish Brown

Sand Green for light foliage and a transition from Green to White.

That orange-yellow color would be good as well. Yellow outright may be a little strong, though I'd gladly accept bold colors like yellow, orange, red, and dark red.

I'd strongly recommend Dark Teal since it would make a good shade filler color for a tree, or even used as kelp or other watery uses.

It would be nice to have multiple colours to facilitate the creation of fall foliage and other types of trees.

Mind you, I too would be happy with increased access to the colour that already do exist.
