Piece Of Mind

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 05 2007 · 149 views

LEGO
Well, there is a new Lego Catalog out, and it has some great new sets. The Aqua Raiders look amazing (better than the Alpha Team Water Series), the new Exo Force are nice (I'll get to that in a moment), and of course there are the Barraki. I'm also set on getting the $10 clone trooper set for Star Wars, as well as the new Lego Star Wars shirt.

Now, on with the Exo Force rant. These sets are great! The pieces you can get with them, the new-colored plug suits (That's what they're called in Evangelion), overall it's another good season. What gets me dissapointed is that they made a brick (or 2) that is basically a brick with a technic ball extending from one or two sides. Then they basically use a joint fo the other stuff. This piece is also in at least in one Aqua Raider set.

Now, this might seem OK. It's great that Bionicle is expanding it's realm, right? Wrong. AFOL's don't like bionicle. (Well, there are some, but those traditionalists....) They don't think it has the Lego feel, even the Technic feel. So, IMO, by putting Bionicle pieces in other System sets, they might get discouraged.
(Or they might see how cool it is and convert)

Would it really have been so hard for Lego to use 5, 10, pieces to make a sufficent arm?

So that's my current rant I can't do anything about.

Sweet. I agree, the Aquaraider things look pretty cool! I like their designs. My favorite is the shark! biggrin.gif

I'd hope that by this point the AFOL community would have come to accept Bionicle (since a lot of the earlier Bionicle fans have started becoming AFOLs themselves)

And thanks to the work our users produce in the BBC...it shows there's a LOT of potential for the pieces they supposedly loathe.
