To make this group a bit more active, Let's make a theme. I'm not talking just a collection of models, but a planned out theme full of different factions. Each builder who participates makes a faction within the theme. Some ideas:
Neo-space: Space with M-tron, blacktron, ice planet, etc. Make a theme with different factions within the existing framework of LEGO space
Deep space: Humans have colonized the orion arm of our galaxy and are spreading outward. custom figures, endless possibilities
Ancient: custom minifigs, historically accurate castles, ringforts, villages, ships, things. Visigoths, scythians, romans, celts, vikings, etc.
So what do you think? would people here be interested in a big collaborative project like that?
For more on how to make a theme, look at some of my models. I have a few different collections that might give you an idea. Permalink
Alright listen up, people! We are now voting for a topic for our new collaborative! There are 3 main-subthemes: Medieval, Modern, Future. We will get into more specific topics later. For now, that's what we have. JWG 258 and I will be moderating the voting (if he wants to help). And also, inactive members WILL START TO BE KICKED. I'm sorry, but dead groups just aren't fun.

Any ideas for a theme? I have made a few half-baked attempts at themes, but they are all space. I would like to do something that LEGO hasn't done before, preferably not a modern or future military thing. After all the time I have spent around real military equipment, doing the same thing with plastic bricks seems less like play and more like work. Permalink
