Why do people seem to think that it's EVER OK to say this or something remotely similar? I don't care if it's about an official BIONICLE product or an MOC-- to say this is to insult anyone who worked on this (unless, of course, they are less than five years old, in which case it means you're impressed).
Of course, it's worthy of note that people tend to say this of either official sets, or MOCs that LEGO has showcased somewhere other than BZPower. Why? Obviously, because if a person doesn't post it on BZPower, they don't deserve any respect. Who came up with that crazy idea?[/sarcasm]
People need to get it into their heads that set designers and offline BIONICLE fans are people too. Sets and contest-winning entries aren't designed by some computer program that generates a random combination of parts-- they're designed by people that put work into making them look just right. And just because you're a master of BIONICLE sculpture (and most people, even some of those who make this type of accusation, aren't) doesn't mean that anything below you is effortless, juvenile trash. Rant over.
