Disappointed: No Space Theme in 2012
Anybody else disappointed that there's no new lego space theme this year ?
My fav lego has always been the Space theme, since the early 80's, so I am prejudiced. I found that it was only limited by your own imagination and the parts that where available.
The last real space theme was mission to mars ! I wouldn't consider Alien conquest to be part of the space theme, it sits in the middle of city and space (although I did collect all the sets).
I really think there's too much focus on licensed sets, that clutters the catalogue, and deprives both the designers and consumers the opportunity to be imaginative.
starwars, harry potter, cars (terrible movie and theme), sponge bob, Indiana Jones, Prince of Persia, Pirates of Caribbean, Super Heroes, LOTR, toy story did I miss any ?
I understand it's about money, but the licensed themes should take over and be the focus.
Anyway . . . bring back the Space theme, please . . .
