I made up a coaster toy idea a few moments ago, so here goes:
What if lego started to make rollercoaster sets using the best designs of B&M's inverted, hyper, floorless, stand-up, and sit down coasters. The peices can be reliable, and it would be easy to put together. ACE could help out, etc.
They can use designs like Nitro, Talon, Riddler's Revenge, and others. If they made this would you buy it?
Let the bears pay the Bear Tax, I pay the Homer Tax.

I would buy it, but it would be expensive, and take a long time to build and a lot of space.

They would need to get copyrights and pay royaltys to park and manufacturers if they copied rides. Lego could make coaster sets, but unfortunantly I dont think they will because there are too many variables and elements in coasters, and the sets would be really expensive.
I don not think that lego ever had a set over
$300. And if they did one tiny detail wrong, us coaster enthuseists would just complain and say that LEGO does not know what they are doing.

At least you would have worry about the cost to build one.

They would have to be a pretty sad kid to want to buy lego kits of specific coaster designs. On it's own, a rollercoaster lego brand would be ok, but it WOULD NOT SELL Period. Kid's want to buy the lego brand sthat exist at the moment. You are kid's arnt you? I really hope you don't spend your adulthood placing lego bricks together!!
Sedcondly, MOST people have never heard of MOST coasters. I'll do it again and quote Jeff:
People only care about the stuff in their local parks and are not interested in a coaster hundreds of miles away, no matter how good it is.
With this in mind, quite frankly, most people wouldnt give the lego sets a second look.
