Wow, this topic is active again for one day and we've already been brought in. Bravo guys, bravo. As we moderators have had to say a couple times now in topics like these, let's remain civil and RESPECT, I repeat, RESPECT each others opinions.
I love how you go out of your way to defend your opinion and try to diffuse the situation, only to then post this:
So if I'm not a fan of air stompers then I'm crazy? If you're so adamant that
Then maybe you should reconsider being a part of the LEGO community, as being 13 or older, you're breaking your own set rule. LEGO is for anyone and everyone. Those numbers on the box are a suggestion, not a rule.
Um... I think something was lost in translation there.
The topic of respect can also be applied to you, Mr. Mistika. Disagree with the opposing side all you want, you can't be argumentative and rude like this no matter how much you disagree, or how flawed their argument is.
And on THAT topic, let's discuss your argument, David and Radrix. You say that themes like Star Wars are repetitive and are killing LEGO's creativity, and then wish for something like Exo Force or Pirates or Castle back. You don't actually want more original themes like you keep claiming, what you want is those themes back, which are just as repetitive as licensed themes. Look at the last release of Pirates from the late 2000s. They were nothing more than modern updates of the classic sets released in the olden days of the '70s and '80s. How is that any different from releasing three different versions of an X-Wing in 3-4 years? Whenever you want to bring up examples of wanting more original themes, maybe don't mention those that were carbon copies. Say something like "I want a spiritual successor to Chima". That covers your bases, as you want a new original LEGO theme, but not a repeat of something that's already happened. Like how NinjaGo is a spiritual successor to BIONICLE.
Now, treat each other better, or all of you are looking at some form of repercussions. This has been happening way too often in the last few months, and we mods are tired of it.
