Didn’t we come up with the theory that it was Constraction? Isn’t it on us that we set our hopes so high? So why are we attacking LEGO?
I get it, You’re upset that it isn’t Constraction, but isn’t better to enjoy what we have instead of dreaming about what we don’t? I love Bionicle, but there are some really cool things that LEGO has been doing lately. Surprisingly, Ninjago is doing well, and this latest wave of sets have intrigued me the most out of any wave since I was a wee lad seeing the Serpentine sets coming out. LEGO just hosted a poll that literally decided on the next Star Wars UCS set (LET’S GO GUNSHIP!). Lego Overwatch has provided awesome sets at awesome prices, and though there are rumors that say otherwise, I’m holding out hope that it continues through 2020.
It may not be what you guys really want, but is there nothing here that interests you? Constraction as we know it may very well be gone. It’s evolved with the Mixel Joints, allowing every current form of LEGO piece, excluding Technic, easy attachment and far more variety in customization of a skeleton. Is it superior? Not by a long shot, but as a fan of LEGO, I can attest that it is still really fun.
So, please, don’t dream about the impossible and have LEGO let you down every time, and direct your frustration at the theme that gave you Constraction at the first place. It’s far more relaxing and enjoyable to hope for the improbable and take time to at the least acknowledge what we have. Never forget Constraction, but you don’t need it to return to still enjoy the sets you already have or LEGO today. And if you’re only a Constraction fan and not a LEGO fan, then that’s alright, but I sympathize for you.
TL;DR - If you spend so much time reminiscing about Constraction that you start scouring the future for any sign of a return, you can miss out on some really fun times. Don’t let the golden age of the past or the dreams for the future ruin the time you could have today.
