So, recently I got the Lego January 2012 Catalog. I was overall not really impressed by the new selection, except for a few things.
Thus, I will now playfully mock the Lego sets from their pictures. I’ll start with the themes in the order that they appear. I will discuss the themes in general but I might point out specific sets. I'm not doing all of them, and I'm going to be fully detailed on all themes. These are just my first thoughts.
All of this is done in fun. :3Lego Ninjago
So apparently the Lego ninjas are now battling the Goa’uld. I have no idea why, but the minifigs look kind of awesome. Although I must ask, why do evil snake people have a crane with a wrecking ball on it? How does this Fangpyre Goa’uld Wrecking Ball fit with ninjas? And snowmobiles? Last I saw ninjas did not have snowmobiles. And helicopters? Jet planes? Really? REALLY?
Also, Cole’s Tread Assault looks like the Ninja Batmobile...Lego City
So, Lego City is now working with Smokey the Bear. They are fighting forest fires… but the forests only have one tree in each set. So… it is more like a tree fire? Also, the police built a Police Station in the forest, to catch all of the robbers. There seems to be an epidemic in Lego forest!Lego Dino
So Johnny Thunder has returned… oh wait… not really. It seems like Jurassic Park… complete with trying to capture and control the dinosaurs. I wonder how many minifigs got eaten? Honestly, Dino Defense HQ should just be called Lego Jurassic Park.Lego DC Super Heroes
I actually like these sets. They have some awesome pieces and minifigs. The sets themselves look pretty cool. My only complaints are that the buildable Batman, Green Lantern, and Joker look… really really bad.Lego Friends
I want these. All of them. <3
Purple and pink all over. These sets are the best Lego has made in awhile. <3Lego Hero Factory
I’m actually not a fan of these new ones, too many large pieces. And the high prices. I’ll pass.Lego Star Wars
I do want that Super Star Destroyer…
Those are my thoughts on the Lego in the catalog.
