shades of grey" in this set. Hahaha
Saves them money, but they have less experience in getting color right and there have been QC issues regarding color. I expect they'll get better at it over time, but there is indeed a learning curve.
I have noticed the same thing as the above posters, color isn't as good as it used to be. Lego needs to be careful, quality is the one big thing that stands out over everyone else. Keep it, at all costs, or pay the price...
Not sure it would, since it adds texture and detail to otherwise boring gray walls, but in person it may look different.
But the idea of having to change out small parts just sounds nuts, just get a whole new set.
However, this is just another reason to sell within 2 years. Lego has committed to supporting EOL sets for 2 years after they retire with parts and service, after that it is only whatever they have left.
So if you sell EOL sets 18 months after retirement and this problem comes up, your customer at least has a possible solution, which is service from TLG.
I can say from my own personal experience as well, when I buy a sealed set from someone that is EOL, if I have a problem with it, I don't blame the seller, after all they didn't make the thing. Only with used sets where the seller knows the contents would I hold him or her accountable.
My 2 cents worth...
Any news. Is it better?
I also noticed that instead of a glossy front and back cover of the instruction book, the replacement has a matte finish. And again, the sticker sheet was mangled and crinkled up. It's really not a good idea to just through a sticker sheet between bags of bricks. Come on, LEGO
I think the improvement is most visible in the first pair of photos.
