I would however like to nominate Set 7151, the original Sith Infitrator, as surely one of the most aesthetically offensive sets of all time. Makes me shudder just to think about it...
While we fling rotten tomatoes; I've always thought that these 3 Harry Potter sets deserve some sort of warning that they could possibly cause permenant retina damage.
A theme I'm more familiar with is Pirates, and there were some pretty ugly designs in the older sets!
Getting back on topic to the less beautiful sets, I got Set 170 Push-along Play Train in a mixed lot a while back and have been scratching my head about it ever since....
I agree with Stuboy, some of the pirates sets were pretty bad after '95, 6244 Armada sentry for instance, what's with the Green doors?!
I think the early Star Wars and Harry Potter eyesores are forgiveable as the designers were working on something new, but something like Pirates which they got right for years and had some excellent classic sets going down the pan was unforgivable - what went wrong? did all the designers suddenly think, 'hang on, i've had enough of pirates now lets ruin it for a laugh'!
Argh, it makes me so mad!!! and don't get me started on the early 2000's Castle themes!
I built it, but like DrDave struggled with the mechanism at the back. The parts are all original, but some of the slightly worn I could replace with newer ones, as long as I have them around, but I'm not going to carefully go over each bit. If anyone is interested, they can have it for 20 quid with the above caveats. I've got it listed on bricklink for £25 and it's about 20 quid cheaper than any other on there (last time I looked)
(all the gears are good, it's just a few plates and common bricks that are nibbled)
I've seen the backstock of sets you have. You probably have ten of each.
@Savage_Steel I'm still waiting for my StuBoy minifig to be released!
Speaking of not appealing sets, this one is a bit awkward looking, at least in the pictures on the box.
(can't do a linky as I'm in my phone, which incidentally is determined that linky becomes kinky. Thanks for potential pitfall apple)
Edit - ninja'd !
Moving on and we have the early 2000's castle buildable figures.
And lastly we have the oddly named and cat like space sets of the 90's.
Also I have forgotten about utter number 1 worst of the worst(clue its in my name).
PS - I applaud the bold attempt, but it just didn't work out at all for me in the end.
