I know many (if not seemingly the majority) of people on here are sticker haters. I just want to make a few statements and try to understand if this is purely an adult thing.
After building set 7948 Outpost Attack (now on sale at Target for $15 - target is having a big sale on Legos) I can totally see how annoying some stickers can be. After all they *used* to print bricks on these castle pieces and that made them seem more quality. So did they do stickers so that you could choose to NOT put them on and make the pieces more useable in rebuilds or is this a cheap out? Again, I get the annoyance.
Is this any reason to be a full-on sticker hater though? Some of the more quality stickers with the clear base actually enhance the product and fit perfectly on the plates or bricks, I love these! The police helicopter came with bi-lingual stickers. I thought that was pretty neat! Maybe it's because I grew up building models where you had to delicately attach decals after soaking them in water (now *that's* a pain) or maybe it's because as a kid we used to collect stickers and have books full of garbage Pail kids, scratch n sniff and oil stickers that changed colours when you pressed upon them. Who didn't like those secret stickers that transformers weilded letting you know if they were a spy or not?
I guess my point is that Legos, according to the ages printed on the box, are meant to be a building toy for kids and kids love stickers (last time I checked the polls among household 6 year olds) BUT I do think Lego can improve upon them and make them fun again. Why not bring back those cool hologram stickers back like 6899 - Nebula Outpost? Or give us lenticular stickers? Some sets even had magnetic stickers. Better yet, why not make scratch n sniff stickers so that my Lego semi-truck can actually smell like diesel :)
ok - I can sleep at night now
