Epic licensing fail

Postby Battlegrinder » Fri Nov 22, 2013 4:56 pm

I've been working on customizing a Best-Lock tank recent, and while looking up some info I needed, I found this:

I don't know who thought it was a good idea to hand to the license for Stargate over to Best-Lock, but I want their head on a pike. Why do people keep giving contracts to those idiots, they make the worst sets on the market!

It actaully does work with other brands. Assuming those brands aren't Lego, Megablocks, Kreo, or any other kind of blocks you'd want to use.

That picture looks like it was photoshopped poorly.

Well, it is Best-lock. I'm not surprised they have poor quality box art.

Seeing a Bestlock set is like when you're driving on a road in the middle of nowhere, and all you see are cattle roaming areas, and then all of a sudden you see a shitty strip mall with painted signs, and you know people make a living working there and have to drive to the middle of nowhere to do nothing at a dead end job for several hours a day. They look shitty, and are shitty too.

If you guys think this is bad I'll need to buy and do an unboxing/review of one of the chinese sets I can get here. But yeah, it just looks stupid. The Sphinx is particularly lol

That's best-lock. Have you seen their website? it's like going through a timewarp back to 1993.

It's a shame that great things have to be copied and ripped off by crap...be original because ripping off someone else's idea is Pathetic.
I play with Lego because professional architectural creativity is stifled by bureaucrats, fools and reality.

I like how everyone is naked other than their vests.

Except the black guy. He killed someone and is wearing their skin.
