- Dark tan 1x2 plates. Well, ok, just scads and scads of dark tan elements in every shape and color, but if you've got to pick one, make sure 1x2 plates are in there. And we know they're in production (or were, since they're in several new sets)!

- Dark green large foliage leaves (and regular green and brown, and every other color, too, but I know dark green and bright green are currently the ones that're in production, and bright green's already there!)

- Gold coins (who couldn't use a bigger stash?)

- Gold 1x2 tiles (you know you want 'em!)

More of the normal parts in new/rare/unusual colors (i.e. sand, light and dark colors).

1x2x2 shutters and shutter holders. Doors that fit on said shutters. Roof slopes in colors other than red and black...

I agree with everything other people have posted... Right now they're not competing very well with bricklink prices on a lot of parts, and I'm afraid that won't change. So it would be best to flesh out the selection of parts where they can compete on either price or availability: animals, minifigs and accessories(food, weapons, coins, etc), foliage pieces, and new/rare colors.

I would also love to be able to get large quantities of parts (especially basic brick and plate) at lower prices, hopefully much closer to bricklink prices. If there's any way they could make that happen, maybe by offering "by the kilo" pricing, or by the box, that would be great. I can't be the only person on CC who would buy several kilos of gray bricks, if they offered them at a competitive price. :)

I would love to see the bases that the Army Men from the Toy Story line but in tan and white. Maybe black. "Why tan and white" you ask, and I answer, "because my shelves are white, and I bet that a lot of shelves are also a nice tan colour too."

I think there should be at least 1 castle wall element. I prefer the old castle wall pieces. It would also be nice to have various helmets and armor pieces available as some have already suggested. It would also be nice to have a few more colors of streamers such as white and yellow. The plastic chain sections for drawbridges etc would also come in handy.

I really like the fact that there are a few castle weapons on there already like crossbows, quivers, axes, spears and lances. The standard castle sword would make a nice addition to the these.

How about some 48x48 baseplates in green and/or blue. This is not really a PAB request but something they could offer through LEGODirect.

I would like to see any part that is included in more than one currently available set on PAB. Every time I've gone to PAB for parts that I figured would be readily available due to their inclusion in current sets, the part either isn't available at all, or not in that color. Because of this(and I can get discontinued parts), I've stopped going to PAB and only buy from Bricklink.

Another thing that would probably increase PAB sales is if they offered parts in a wider variety of colors. For example, Wedge 8 x 3 x 2 Open hasn't been used in a set where it's blue. But if I was building a blue MOC and wanted to use this piece I would have to go to PAB and get it.

I think there should be oars on pick a brick. There should be brown ones at the very least since they are the most common.

Blueandwhite wrote:I'd really like to see a greater range of minifig heads, hair and accessories available. Many of these pieces are desireable across lines (Space, Pirates, Castle, Town, etc.). While offering parts specific to each individual builder's
needs is great, often those parts are covetted by a select few builders. I wonder why LEGO doesn't run a few of the older popular torsos like the Black Falcons or Forestmen.

LEGO could easily offer older popular torso prints for $1.00 per fig which would beat the majority of bricklink sellers. Consider that the average Black Falcon torso goes for well over $1.00 on Bricklink. Other torsos and accessories sell for considerably more. It's one area that LEGO really seems to be missing out on.

Oh and lots of dark brown.


Couldn't agree more :D .

I know I don't speak for everyone when I say this, but it would be nice to have light flesh minifigure parts (like heads) too. Also, reddish brown bows would be nice, more animals could be cool, more figure parts, etc.
I'd like to see more Castle minifigure stuff.

Please forgive me for posting so late. :oops:
