Re: LEGO What? I'm more amused by the fact I've seen one off the offbrand block sets selling a couple smaller Dr Who themed sets I've ignored at the local Target for several months now. Wonder how that licensing works out :lol
Re: LEGO What? That brand would be Cobi, and I think they no longer have the Who license. Technically, Dr. Who was in the last Ideas review phase, but a decision was "held-off on", presumably because of the license getting ready to or having just expired. And I've seen the stuff you're talking about. I've wanted to grab one for the stone-like elements, but not for the $20 they had it priced at.
And just because I'm one of those free-thinking block-nerds I'd argue that Cobi isn't an "off brand". In fact, they make a line of WWII tanks I've been crazy for over the past couple of years.
Re: LEGO What? Oh, i remember you showing me those really cool tank sets some time back, no idea this company made them.
But "offbrand" there really wasn't meant to be a dig on quality. They're all basically the same design/pieces/compatibility to Lego, so if it's not Lego, it's offbrand. I can't keep them separate beyond that :lol
