After more than A DECADE of Lego SW......
Join to comment
LEGO has sure come a long way for 1999 when they began the Star Wars line. They started out as primitive sets (but they sure were cool back then!) and gradually got more advanced pieces and designs. I can remember browsing through the 1999 catologue of the sets (which i still have BTW) and really wanting the lego star wars ones. I believe the first set I got was the imperial shuttle or the ewok attack. Anyway I believe that LEGO star Wars was at it's prime at around 04'-05'. Then it went downhill as in the prices went up, more meaningless sets were introduced and most importantly the flesh skin. I couldn't stand it at first but of course I had to get used to it. Also, they introduced bulgy heads and weird minifigs when the Clone Wars line came out. To me it broke the tradition of lego being a toy and not exact replicas of the models. I think that LEGO SW has run out of many good models and that it's "dead" I really miss the old Lego sets.... Anyway comment and critique me if you want to

I hate the flick fire missles, They are horrible! You are right but the Clone Wars models introduced more "battle" ships and infantry units. I also like how the clones have faces now instead of black heads. The helmets from '05 were the best and had the most detail. The prices have sure gone up though and it makes it ALMOST not worth buying but making a MOC. If Lego was smart they would get people with great sets here on MOCpages and work with them. Why can't Lego talk to Mark Kelso about the Invisible Hand and do what they did with the Venator, Mini size it? If it wasn't for Lego's poor choice in what to make for models we wouldn't have been inspired. 1+ more year to go.

yeah I h8 the flick fire missiles. I also noticed that the new lego sets have concentrated on accuracy to the movie models (TIE Fighter blue, minifigs etc.) I don't know yet since I just moved to Hungary but maybe legos are cheaper in Europe....

I agree Legos are just to expensive, thank god for E bay though. I have to admit I didnt like the flesh skin either. I had to get new battle packs now. Thats the only thing I will buy from lego. Some parts here and there but nothing for those prices. After Episode II SW Legos have really went down hill. Wasn't impressed with Episode III models either. Lego got too cheap in manufacturing plastic because of the prices of oil. Good thing we all have an imagination that we can use to put lego designers to shame, anyways does anybody have any ideas? SW ideas? I'm thinking of a dio or a scene to build. Something extraordinary. Well let me know guys. Send me E-mails at dustin.esau@yahoo.com with your ideas for me.

honestly im not to thrilled about legos ideas either but i wasnt around when the good sets were out ive ordered one on ebay and im sorta happy they made episode 2 clones because i hadn't bought many episode three sets even though i liked the old episode 3 guys but i never got the chance two buy a set that came with one but i did get the at-rt love the guy so yeah.
