Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

Don’t hate me for this
I don’t like Monkie Kid
That goes both for show and sets that are way too overpriced

Besides the price, why don’t you like it?

I like Monkie Kid but I feel it’s overstayed its welcome.

Ninjago? No.

Star Wars? Yes, so long as it’s good media.

The Mandalorian and Star Wars:Visions are proof that you can basically do anything within the Star Wars universe and as long as it’s good, the aesthetic will never get tiring.

I don’t care if Star Wars Star Wars is dead forever, I’d buy LEGO SW sets as long as they’re good. The best SW sets come dry periods of SW media.

Even that dumb Kenobi show has awesome sci fi minifigures that can be used outside of Star Wars. I wish lego wouldn’t paywall the star wars minifigs as hard as they do because the detail on some of these are nuts. And by “paywall”, I mean they sell you an overpriced ship or piece of scenery that you don’t need.

IF I HAD A NICKEL FOR EVRYTIME I HEARD AM’S SPEECH THIS WEEK, I’D HAVE TWO, WHICH ISN’T A LOT BUT IT’S WEIRD THAT IT HAPPENED TWICE.

Also unpopular opinion here, the Hero Factory Dropship is better than the 2008 vehicles. The landing gear, shape, opening canopy, controls, function (Dropping a canister), weapons and cool stickers are factors that make it a fun toy and nice display piece.

I’m exaggerating a bit as I do love the Jetrax and it would be a close one.

I agree. Technically I can only really compare it to the Axalara and Rockoh, but I did have a multicolour Jetrax built out of leftover parts once. The other two are neat, but they are pretty much just giant rectangles with seats and heaps of blades on them. The dropship looks like it could actually fly.

I also love the way the colour blocking’s done. The main body is almost exclusively yellow with a black nosecone, while the wings are grey and the weapons are black. It’s surprisingly cohesive.

Don’t forget the dropship could use the HF canisters as pods.

Man, that was “Toa mata canisters are the suvas” level of cool to me at the time. I always wanted Lego to do more with the canisters. Most didn’t really have many special features like that. The mata canisters were the suvas, bohrok were the nests, Visorak cans could store Rhotuka in the lid, Mahri could use theirs as a very ad-hoc Cordak nest, and that was basically it far as I know.

don’t forget that the Phantoka cans could be used as cages or something, according to the back image

Forgot about that one, never had any of the phantoka. Wasn’t really an obvious thing like the Mahri Cordak nest.

I should probably copyright that picture or something with how often people seem to use it

You should make a bunch of similar images of the canister backs and start putting on stock sites. Make a bit of cash.

The Technic Rahi are the most boring villain sets.
