addendum: the fans. jesus christ, I love this comunity in some aspects, but this whole divide over gen 1 and 2 is stupid. yes, gen 2 was debatable in quality, but can we stop saying the original was better? it really wasnt too much at the base story. the expanded stuff did make it better, but that happened much later into the lines lifespan (the first book was released in 03). gen 2 never got its chance. leave it alone. it want too bad, and, honestly, the sets where actually better than any of the old ones on a technical standpoint.
beyond that, the way the franchise is considered holy when there are so many flaws, the way that every community member is stuck in the early 2000s, the biotube war back when that happened, our tendencies to get butt-hurt over the tiniest thing, and also the fact that the community at large defends the first three movies and rejects legend reborn. they are of equally poor Quality at best, and at worst, Legend reborn is actually BETTER than 1, 2 and 3.
(this is gonna get me kicked from the boards, isn't it.)
