POLL: Pick the Brickmania Releases for Spring 2014!
We’re planning our production schedule for the SPRING months and we’re asking the Brickmania community for input. The problem is we always have more ideas than we have time or the budget to produce. For the next three months we’re basing our production schedule on what YOU want us to release. Since production will need to start right away, we’re going to offer you a selection of models we already have in the prototype stage. If there’s other stuff you would like to see for later releases, write a message in the comments section and maybe we’ll put that up in the next poll!
The rules of the poll:
The poll is broken into categories based on the estimated retail price of the models. You can vote for as many models in each category as you want. (make sure you check out all of the different sections). We ask you to be realistic about what you might actually buy. We can’t do all the models shown in the next three months, so pick the ones you really want, and leave the second choices for future consideration. Keep in mind the pictures are simply prototype models and may differ somewhat from the final kits. Polls close March 28, 2014 at midnight CST

I like all of the kits here but what I would dream of you having is a british centurion tank in Israeli camouflage and upgrades thanks
I agree with you a centurion tank would be really great with a tan camo
Ah. All of these ideas are nice, but what about a F6F hellcat??
Mr. Siskind, would Brickmania ever release instructions for these models?
I wouldn’t say never, but not anytime in the near future.
How about modern military aircraft. F-22 or F-35? We need more modern stuff!
The Köningstiger looks great!
But sadly the tan-only color makes it look like it’s supposed to be an Afrika Korps version, which really doesn’t do it justice. A 2 or 3-tone camo (tan, dark bley, dark tan/brown) would add a lot to it.
Having said that, I’ll probably buy one anyway and mod it, or pick the light bley version in order for it to better fit with the rest of the late war Axis forces. Tough call…
The Jagdpanzer IV and M-10 Wolverine are also instant-buys, depending on their release schedule…
Keep in mind the pictures are prototype models in various stages of development. The colors of the final models could be very different from what you see in the photos.
Mr.siskind I find it very amusing that you put numbers on what type of palmtree it is.not just a normal palm tree ,but a mk1palmtree
Like the Mustang. Would like to see a M60 or M1 tank.
The Messerschmitt is awesome! however, I am on a tight budget, and if it costs more then $115 I probably will not get it. Also, the Palm Tree funny, but it is cool enough to buy.
Concerning the light grey King Tiger instead of a tan version:
Maybe you could also release a 2 tone camouflaged version in Tan and dark bluish grey to avoid those extremely rare tan pieces. =)
Just about ANY tan will cost more and will drive up the price. The King Tiger is still just a first-generation prototype and any final model will be significantly different than what you see in the picture.
Renault ft tank!
Could you guys maybe think about doing a jet sometime?
Can you guys still sell the p-51D mustang if it doesn’t get the most votes?
Im voting on a F-18,F-16,F4E,or a AH 64 Apache
You can’t vote if it’s not on the ballot, but I’ll keep those in mind for future voting!
Jagdpanther, jagdtiger, or an elefant.
would pay anything under the tiger 1 price to have either of them
Dan will the Flak 36 “88” Anti-Aircraft be available on its own?regards josh.
I hope and please make the LCVP Higgins Boat as a kit I am building a d day moc and this whud be perfect.
Dan here are some ideas make a Hetzer tank destroyer M26 Pershing medium tank M7 medium tank Nashorn tank destroyer and su-85 tank destroyer.But most of all a M26 Pershing medium please I will buy it!
Dan make t21 and t71 light tanks.A lightweight version of the T20 medium tank with the elongated M7 chassis. The vehicle was developed in the first half of 1943. Unlike the T20 tank, the T21 featured reduced armor and lightened armament. The vehicle never entered mass production nor saw service.
the t71 a Experimental airborne light tank with an oscillating turret. Developed from 1950 through 1953 as a replacement for M41.
first off, Dan, thanks for letting us have a say. we really appreciate it. second, they all look great. had i unlimited funds, i would buy them all.
since i don’t, these will be the ones i will definitely get:
57mm AT gun
as for the rest, i am holding off only because i have earlier models. for example, i really like the m-3 and sdkfz halftracks, and the humvees, but might have to put those on the bottom only because i already have earlier versions of them. i like the german heavy tanks, but would prefer them in a dark tan if possible.
i hope you can stagger production to allow us to build up our coffers.
as to a wish list, gee, where to start?
large mortar. maybe on a railcar
gunboat of some sort
caissons and limbers
british mk i-iv tank
us 155 mm long tom howitzer
us m-12 sp howitzer
us m-26 pershing
us m-6 artillery tractor
german 88mm at gun with transport wheels
us m-21/m-16 mortar and AA halftrack variants
british 25 pd howitzer
german supply truck of some sort
german horch staff car
us dodge wc-51/52 series truck (maybe the wc-55 AT version as well)
more huey variants, maybe a cobra
some russian armor and APCs
hey, i can dream, can’t i?
A sturm tiger would be awesome
I would love it if you made a battle of Berlin theme kinda like the barbossa theme because
I am working on a stopmotion film about the batle of Berlin. Also a flakpanzer would be nice.
Can you make a c-47 skytrain
go m10 I voted for m10 Dan make a M26 Pershing The Pershing was developed to fight heavy tanks, and was itself initially classified as heavy. After World War II it was re-classified as medium. A few saw combat in the closing phase of World War II.
B-17 Flying Fortress or B-29 Super Fortress
m10 woverine would be awesome vote m10
New Abrams, Leopard MBT, M48 Patton, M29 Pershing, more battle packs and Land Kreuser P1000 Ratte
How about mv-22 osprey?
I love the Messerschmitt Bf-109 it is awsome
I agree, i wish i could have one :D…
THAT HIGGINS BOAT LOOKS AWESOME!
The P-51 in 357th Fighter Group trim would be my favorite. Here is a great story about a recently deceased member of the 357th and some of his adventures, which included flying under the Eiffel Tower!
This combined with ME-109 in gray would be something else
Disclaimer: Bill Overstreet was my Great Uncle
awesome man great to see our heros are still recognized. today thank you for your great uncles service. my grandpa was in korea 🙂
You should REALLY make the Stummel a set at one point – that’s a kit I would buy.
The AC-130 Gunship would go wonderfully with the hummvee.
Please do the humvee… i was mad when you discontinued it… please vote for the humvee
Would these kits be out by summer?
Please keep the P-51D mustang i really want it. I would be really grateful if you guys could keep the P-51D mustang. If you are okay with keeping it, thanks.
As I talked to Dan about at one of the open houses, I REALLY think you guys should at least try to make some Lenco stuff. I’ll put a link below. Militaries and SWAT Teams use them all around the world, and that opens up for many color choices. I suggest both the BEAR and BearCat. Please take a look, at the very least. http://www.lencoarmor.com/
You should make the Maus and the jadtiger
Future Kit Ideas:
1. Panzer IV (late war with side skirts)
2. Leichter Zugkraftwagen SdKfz 10/5 Flak 20mm
3. SdKfz 7 with Flak 36
Please Vote for P51 Mustang i didn’t get the P51 mustang red tail so i have to get This P51 Mustang
please please please keep the m1025 humvee as iys the best humvee ive ever seen. even if you keep into the next poll ill be very gratefull 🙂 🙂 🙂
AMX 13 90
WWI Mark VI
Churchill, and its variants
lol I don’t think dan is going to make a tank that only existed on blueprints *cough cough E-100 cough*, as for the T28, dan has already said he is not interested that in a T28/T95. I would be interested in a 13 90, but asking for tanks from World of tanks is like asking for for a tank that doesn’t exist.
88 with bogies
