first, that's incorrect,
second, pretty much everything else is incorrect,
Yes I wouldn't be accusing lego of something that's not true,
but I'm here now, because it actually is true,
look at the parts on both sides of the circle, on the fan model, they are high,
on the official, they are low,
on the sticker, they are high in the exact same way,
I really like how you never show the fan model,
because otherwise, your point wouldn't look very good,
You only decide to show the official model in comparison,
if only the official model existed and the fan model did not,
then your point would stand completely and no one would be able to disprove it.
You're attempting to put yourself in a space where only your evidence exists.
I'm not wanting to argue about the morals or reasons why lego would take it.
I'm only talking about how a designer used this design, showed it to lego,
and they said something like 'yeah that looks like our thing so we won't question it', they wouldn't have the fan insight like we do,
we see lots of things, (mostly because we go onto the internet for hours and hours looking at image search)
this gives us a large database of versions and customs or whatever,
I saw that and It immediately looked like a fan version I saw a bit ago.
There isn't a whole lot of concrete evidence to say that it's based on the fan design but it's 100% more concrete evidence that you've displayed.
We aren't overreacting to this issue (even if we were we'd probably have a reason) we're reacting to your points.
