Well, thank goodness!

 

After they announced Adventure Time as a set I was sure LEGO was doomed.

Why would LEGO making a single set based on a popular cartoon spell doom for LEGO? They've made entire themes based on movies that bombed (Speed Racer, Prince of Persia, The Lone Ranger) and still managed to come out sparkling.

 

Anyway, this set looks phenomenal, and has a great value! Not sure if I'll be getting it, but the design appears to be spot-on!

Because Adventure Time is a show that has barely any consistency within itself and is terrible grounds to being a line of sets upon. It's kinda like the idea for a Nintendo line; it wouldn't last or make much money, the exception being Nintendo makes money off of anything it touches.

Again, though, nobody ever said anything about Adventure Time getting a LINE of sets. All that's been announced is one single Ideas set. And I see no reason it wouldn't make money. There are plenty of companies that have been making Adventure Time merchandise for years and continue doing so, so obviously somebody's buying it.

 

I don't see why Nintendo sets would be a bad move either. "Consistency within itself" has never been necessary for a LEGO license to succeed or last — if it were, then Batman sets wouldn't be remotely successful, given that Batman, Robin, the Batmobile, the Joker and so forth vary wildly from one appearance to the next.

(seriously though that's some nice detailing and parts usage, as has come to be expected of these sets. the sheer number of teeth is incredible)
