What are you talking about? They have been back at work on it for quite awhile, so the redesign should be done we just haven't seen it yet.

this is what i'm talking about. they dont have many options to redesign. they just need to get rid of the clock, they cant design a complete new tower.

they were so proud of their crapy design, setting up a huge model and all that stuff. as you said, they have been back for quite a while now, and nothing happens! this sucks!
