You know LEGO? Of course you do! They are a pretty good company, and have mostly deserved their high status among toy industries. But, throughout the years, LEGO has made some strange decisions with their lines of toys, and I am going to list some of them in no order. Avatar: The Last Airbender Great show, but odd sets. I didn't get any of the whopping two sets that we got for the line, but they look okay. Nothing major about this line, nothing particularly horrible, it's just odd. Probably a cash-grab regarding the popularity for the show at the time. Ben 10 Yet again, another possible cash-grab. Ben 10 exploded in popularity during it's first run, and it was hard for anyone not to notice the ten-year old Benjamin wearing an ultra-powerful watch called the Omnitrix. So, during the second Ben 10 wave, LEGO released six constraction sets of six forms that come with the new Omnitrix powers. These sets were very forgettable, and had very simplistic builds that didn't really catch anyone's attention. While popping into my local toystore to get a few CITY sets, I thought I would pick up the Humongosoar (or whatever it was called) set. Why not? These consisted of few pieces, and weren't that interesting. I'm not bashing on the line for being simplistic, because it was just an innocent experiment. Time Cruisers Now this theme is pretty weird. I know I shouldn't be bashing on this theme so much, as it is an earlier System set, but these sets are still pretty strange. I know that the 'time travel' aspect is a main reason for all the weirdness, but the builds are all over the place. One particular set called the Flying Time Vessel is supposed to be a boat.. crossed with a plane... crossed with a pirate ship... what? The sets in general look like sets slapped together by the creative director's nephew, and shipped off and mass-produced to be sets. Weird. Znap Now I'm really scraping the bottom of the barrel. While scrolling through themes on Brickset to look at some Viking sets (awesome sets, by the way), I found this theme. So I took a quick look, and the sets looked repulsive. It's an odd attempt to make vehicles out of the Technic line, and this was most probably the first try. Seriously, the sets look like they are made from straws! It's still pretty funny, since it looks like a LEGO knockoff when LEGO themselves made them. Yet again, a little dud on a good reputation. And... Galidor Oh boy. Galidor was an epic fail by LEGO. First of all, these look like cheap action figures made in China. There is absolutely nothing that makes it unique to LEGO. It's just your run-of-the-mill action figure. Second, the figures look horrible, and at times, terrifying if you look at some of them. I can't even explain how bad it is. Before you leave this post or write a comment, go and look up Galidor. Have fun laughing hysterically. Nice try LEGO, should have stayed content with Bionicle. So? Have I introduced you to any themes you haven'y heard of? Disagree with me? Do you also think the Vikings sets are awesome? Give me your opinion.
