If the lego company actually does release this set in a different color, I suppose I would like tan, for a couple of reasons.
1. Since the original was in yellow, this would be close to that, but would still look more 'realistic'. (at least to me.)
2. That much tan would be great for so many other projects, like woodshops, adobe houses (for those in the southwest), bales of hay, small huts.
3. After reading some of the other posts here, if it were in tan, it would make a great desert castle.
