but the package can be their nail on the coffin by getting Disney pissed as the owner of the IP and the design
However to be honest, I have seen fake Lego, but not often do I see a fake lego set like the SW ones shown above, is it really that big an issue to them?
I knew at 5 years old playing in the box of Lego at school, that the Tyco superblocks mixed in with the Lego were nof a poor construction and didn't really fit and should never be used to create a model
Buy some clone brands if you are so keen on them, and see how they they hold up over the years. I doubt you'll find them so "awesome" then :o)
However, I'm really not about the minifigs and all about the building, so I can't abide clones. The Tyco bricks I have at home are fine, and maybe if I came across some Star Diamond I would like them, but other than that I don't think I could bring myself to use them. (Speaking of Tyco, many of you recall Tyco being terrible; perhaps there were two eras of Tyco, to account for the fine part quality I've experienced, and the terrible quality some of you have spoken of?)
As for Mega Bloks, whether their quality is still terrible or not, their designs are too jarringly different from Lego's for them to make sense together. I like that they're doing their own thing and their part designs seem fine for their purposes, but it's not for me. Lego's elegance is, in my view, much better than Mega Bloks' detail. Different strokes. (Mega Bloks' and Kre-O's licenses also don't appeal to me, but then I'm not really into Lego's licenses either. I guess I'm just in it for the Lego.)
I believe they are the boxed versions of these:
While I can understand someone who is more into building than collecting minifigures saying such a thing, I can assure that it is entirely not true in the slightest.
Simply put, knock-offs are:
-Exactly what they are, knock-offs. Regarding the super hero minifigures referenced above, those are blatant rip-offs of another company's intellectual property.
So again, the same way you feel about your blocks is the same way I feel about my blocks. We expect the same from our blocks. The only difference is your blocks build sets, and mine build minifigures. :o)
If that's your cup of tea and you feel it is worth it, then that's fine with me.
...Begun the Clone war has.
Now the 'Exploiter' line...
Oh no wait, thats the Firescenter.
My IQ just dropped a little. I give up.
I used the site last year for some non lego stuff, not knowing it was all fake and the quality was definately questionable.
Character Building construct-a-bugz. They zoom around on the floor and spin round when they crash. 13 pieces for about £4-5 (price checked online). They are actually not too bad. You can sit a lego minifig on the top to get them to ride around - in fact, with care you can get three minifigs on top. He only got one of them, but if you get more they are mix-and-match. Quite fun, and something lego don't do.
The wings fit on normal lego bars, as the clips are the same size.
