D'aww, I miss Exo-Force. Lego really had something good on their hands during the first year, but started slipping with it during 2007. Pity as it had so much potential. They need to go back to a Mech themed line with a manga to tell the story.

ya, they really didnt even have a climax to the story, i mean, did the sensei guys survive?did mecha 1 win? did our heroes get killed? they left it all in the blank

I started writing a little fanfiction for it which would wrap it up (At least for me), but I keep getting writers block every time I try to continue it.

Man, Exo-Force was quite an interesting theme. I enjoyed it a lot, because of the build style and it came with a good load of useful slope pieces (Along with the light bricks and fiboroptics that I love to use). I think it did well, but the loose story may have been a downside for me.

Exo-Force was awesome. I'll just say that now, so that I don't have to repeat myself later. =P I'm gonna agree with TWA... LEGO had an awesome theme, but started to lose momentum on the story. I don't know if they really had as bad mechs for 2007 as everyone used to think, as I liked them myself(Aero Booster? Amazing set, and I'm still regretting that I never got it. =P); but I think that the '08 mechs were the best, and I use a similar style, though not quite the same. Also, quick question, anyone happen to know the best way a 'rounded' style mech could be created? I'd ask elsewhere, but, well, there aren't any general mech-based topics. =P

I miss Exo-Force. It was a brilliant theme that got killed just as it began to get really interesting. Sigh.

Hey Blade! '07 had the best mechs in my opinion. Shadow Crawler was worth every euro cent I paid for it. -Heat

Hey; didn't recognize your new name. xD Shadow Crawler was pretty good. It's been slowly getting parts scavenged from it, but that's a good thing, IMO; as that's part of why I consider it pretty good. =P Of course, now it'll be harder to put back to the way it was without instructions, but ah well. =P

I'm gonna go with '06 having the best sets. You just can't go wrong with Grand Titan and Supernova. Or the base, for that matter.

Yeah. I liked all the years, but 2006 had a unique feel that no other Lego theme can ever have. Man, I loved Takeshi.

I never got any of the '06 sets. D= But, I believe the click sockets being used for the arms might've been a good idea, even if it didn't allow as fast movement at times as the ball joints(Only going off experience from the click sockets on the legs, so...) I really liked the Up-Link, however. It was one of the only sets that i could actually replicate before getting any of the sets, so that might have been partly why I liked it so much. =P

Ohh, I remember these. I fully regret never buying any of the sets, now I crave them badly. Like everybody else says, LEGO had a perfect idea (I mean seriously, manga-style mechas in LEGO form? Why not!?) and then killed it slowly.

I agree. I would really LOVE a video game based on Exo-Force.I just wish it didn't get cancelled (although, the story turned into an absolute mess after the Golden City saga).

In all of your opinions? What wave do you think was the best? I thought that the jungle wave was pretty cool.

2006, above all. The amazing sets, like the Sentai Fortress (Which I think might actually be the most I've ever spent on a single Lego set), the brilliant light bricks, which were a lovely feature that got forgotten about in 2007, and the charismatic characters, who I was really interested in finding out more about in 2006.

I loved exo-force, every now and then when I have lego battles I'll bring in Ryo or Takeshi as a ninja. I remember once I wanted an exo-force set so badly my cousin said he would give me the money if I went on this huge rollercoaster (I am deathly terrified of them).

I loved the 06 sets. the minifigures were amoung my favorites in my collection. Sadly, they got stolen off a model I made for the county fair, and I have never had the chance to replace them. My Up-Link model got taken apart, and was never fully put back together. I still have the pieces, though...And does anyone know if the online copies of the comics are still available somewhere? I'd love to read them again.

Use the Wayback Machine on Archive.org. ;) I used it to get some images for a custom HEROsector01 skin from the Exo-Force: Jungle Mission site.

Weren't there tiny little comics at the end of each instruction booklet? Those were okay, but never really read them at the same time, so it didn't mean much. :P

I never really liked this theme.

Any reason why or just 'cuz? It's always cool to get a dissenting opinion. TMD

You know, I think I've realised what I miss most about Exo-Force. I remember the good old days of old BZPower with Exo-Blunders, and Exo-Farce. Anyone know if NNH is still around?

I loved Exo-Force. In fact, I'd say it's what got me back into system sets after Bionicle had carried me through my "dark ages" (For those not in the know, a LEGO fan's "dark ages" are the years in a kid's mid-teens when they start to lose interest in LEGO products). I took interest in Exo-Force at first for the neat recolors of Bionicle weapons, but was instantly drawn in by the complex builds and shonen-esque story. I'd say 2006 was the best year for story, but the sets were not as structurally sound as later models; I've had to rebuild the Supernova so many times... In 2007 the story was still good. The sets became more standardized, with less diversity (compare the Blade Titan to the Sky Guardian, or the Cyclone Defender with the small mech in the Aero Booster). On the other hand, the sets were more stable. The third year kept some of the standardization with slightly more diversity, and the stability was idealized with the use of ball joints for the ankles (this way the legs were still firm, but the feet would adapt their angle to stay flat on the floor). Unfortunately, the story that year suffered as a result of the theme being cut short.

I missed that. However, I was planning a new version of the RPG before the downtime, but never heard anything about it. Not sure where to post anything about a new one, but the details should still be in my blog.
