They all feature the brand name 'Leyo' and they have decided to start a new range of Leyo Brocks to use them all up.
Apparently, a new site, 'Brockset' has been set up to help people keep up with these new releases and manage their Brock collections.
I came here to find out what a brock was. I'm staying to laugh (good naturedly) at @BooTheMightyHamster :-)
If you're French and you put them in milk is it "brock-au-lait" and so count as plant-made pieces?
Yes, I know that was tenuous.
Ha! That pretty much describes the state of my bank account after last year's epic product lineup...
LEGO is becoming over-saturated everywhere. Barely a week goes by without LEGO or something made from LEGO or an explanation using LEGO is in the news. Some of my son's friends' parents have even asked that their kids don't get lego for birthday presents as they already have enough of it ...
Plus, to me, they are taking the mickey with pricing these days. I don't think I have paid retail price in ages and if I did it was for PAB not sets. Any normal retail set will be discounted by 30% at some stage, so I'll wait. This tends to keep me out of LEGO stores and in supermarkets. Or we'll go to the LEGO store, collect a promo (like the birthday set with the calendar voucher) and then shop in a supermarket instead.
I too can't wait for the Pokemon Collectable Minifigures series featuring 20 mostly identical variants of Brock with slightly different facial expressions
I remember when Hasbro, Mattel, Tyco... were just too powerful for a silly blockmaker to ever challenge their revenue...
There is only 1 true Brock. all others are just poor clones.
Praxair is a company that literally harvests, separates and bottles elements and compounds in the air. How uninteresting...
Maybe not a block maker, but a brock maker, now that one has a chance to rule the world...
All hail Peter Perfect, King of the mountain!
And as far as the story at hand goes, it seems apparent that there were definitely supply issues created by both expanded product lines and licensing requirements. I wonder how many more millions of dollars worth of Apollos or Falcons could have been sold
if demand allowed while warehouses full of Joker Balloon Escapes sit unsold...
(not a meme)
You hit the nail on the head. I've suggested certain sets to friends and coworkers who asked about Lego to give as a gift. The typical response is always how much are they going to pay. Mentioning waiting for sales isn't really helpful when the party is that weekend.
