Cool because they remind me of NASCAR. Not cool because you slap "Contender" on all your products.

Atom Republic is just as bad with that Logo.


 Just make items without branding them with a name.

Not sure if they'd be too big, but those as Locomotions... would be epic. Or maybe a NASCAR style racing game in a personal space. What I'm tryin' to say is: I wanna drive them around! lol :3


@Sophie. You should visit my track (2nd city #130195) in Home Tycoon. I would like to see how many people (cars) I can get in there at the same time and see them all on the track together.  Smiley Very Happy   It's a pretty nice track.   Smiley Tongue

 

On topic: Sorry, I have not seen the new Game Mechs Cars in person. They look nice from here but if they NO GO, I no get.  Smiley Sad  Welcome GM and I wish you the best of luck.    Smiley Wink

Something else that just dawned on me....

These new LMO's could actually hold 2 people while rolling around in Home.

The Granzella floaties allow 2 people to explore the ocean area at the Glimmering Sands beach.

If you guys were to add a few music track packs for custom music experiences, all I can say is CHA CHING !...You would now have the item line of the year and take Home by storm.

Having a brand reflects the sports theme. It reflects the genre. Having blank tires would look odd. The Road Runner cartoons had Acme products. We are trying to do the same thing. Some people like it.

I like them.  I bought the black one myself.  They're neat, low slot count, good price and full scale items are always a plus.  You should make a Days of Thunder color scheme though, I'd pick that one up too.  I'm wondering if you guys have ever thought of making a public game space?  I could see a racing game with our actual avatars driving and car customization being a cool space, maybe even track building and someone suggested karts on the last page, an indoor kart racing track(with our avatars) would be pretty fun too.

Good times.

I miss events like this.

 

Bu to the thread, neutral.

It would be interesting to see a lmo that size.

There are memory limits. We are working hard to see if we can come up with something good within those limits.

Haven't bought 1 yet, but a little off topic. But I'm convinced that I would love em, since the stuff you released before always have been in my taste.

I would figure as much. Taking from another company who has the mech lmos, those are pretty big in size. Assuming those would take some memory as well.

Would be nice to see something like that, from your company. Not really a mech, but anything original would be nice.

I think that if Devs are going to make Motorcycle/Car LMO's a public space should be made to race friends or just have a leisurely drive.  Home does not have spaces large enough to really enjoy these LMO's which is why I dont buy these.  Once they start creating spaces that allow you to drive around (not like in Home Tycoon garbage) I will buy one, until then SORRY
