Re: Wait, what? Oh, Dein's gonna hate this.


YUP, you nailed it. emoticon

These started leaking out back in July, and at the time I was hopeful we'd get a continuation of the old story. Then that came to not be the case, I was at least happy to see the six original Toa were back.

Then we got a good look at the new sets, and they're pretty terrible, so I've refrained from buying any of it.

Besides, I've cut back on my LEGO purchases considerably. Sets are getting too numerous and too expensive with too few pieces and crammed with too many Minifigs (10 years ago I would never imagine such a thing!) That, combined with all the stellar stuff Mega Bloks puts out for Halo and Call of Duty, and the expensive-ass imports of overseas military brands, I really have to focus and only get LEGO sets I really want.

So, retreaded Toa with a new storyline don't make the cut ;)

It's an odd case where I actually kinda like the look, but mostly display space and the fact that Combiner Wars is just lining up to steal from my wallet means "Oh, that looks kinda cool" doesn't really have the priority it did back in the day.

I've come a ways from the days of the Cybertron line when expendable income meant I tried to go completionist on the damn thing. :lol
