Does anyone know why Lego has not produced a GBC (Great Ball Contraption) set? I have yet to find someone who does not enjoy watching GBCs in action. My 7-year-old son is obcesed with them and really wants to build a GBC module. He had a gift card from his birthday that was burning a hole in his pocket so I took him to the store and we went straight to the lego section. For the first time in his life, he evaluated set based on the pieces rather than the set itself. He was indecisive so we walked around and looked at other items. Then he saw some VEX sets (a technic like building set that moves balls around) and he immediately picked one up and told me this is what he wanted. The system is a bit more complicated than lego/technic but he has adjusted well and so far really enjoys the set. Obviously there is a market for ball moving sets, and if Lego had produced one he would have purchased it instead. It surprises me that Lego has not entered this market especially with the growing popularity of GBC builds.
