I only bought 1 book haha. I bought it when I was a book show.
I truly wonder how G2 designer team was approaching this theme... Some of them just seem downright : "I don't really know what this is...." Which I don't know since maybe
1) English is not their 1st language
2) Maybe camera stress?
Sir, you design the said sets, aren't you suppose to be enthusiastic about your creation and know evey bit of details and thought that went behind it? (-.-)
The target market is what truly baffles me : 6-12 and 7-14. I do get it if they are aiming at 6-8. But what about the upper range of kids? The story doesn't have enough material for those "teens" to dig about. Plus, the book weren't even advertised...
So, how I view G1: you still get story via website and comics. Want deeper lore: books by scholastic!
G2: Webcartoon only No advertisement for the books or graphic novels.
Kids are always curious and if they like something, they'll dig for more. But, Lego had to make it hard for them by not telling where to find it. sign
