It had been a dark time. My sixth grade year was halfway over and I was already ready for the entire school year to be done. As I went into the holidays for December 2000, I looked towards Christmas to bring some measure of reliable joy: LEGO!
However, in that realm, things were not well, either. Although one can argue with my individual opinion about how lacklustre LEGO's offerings in the year 2000 were, it is a fact that the company itself was in trouble. The “Star Wars” line from 1999 was a smashing success, but in the long run, it had only put a bandage on the bullet wound that was LEGO's finances. It was a dark time for the company, too.
Thankfully, for us both, help was on the way.
