What is your favorite current Lego line/theme?

Postby Dr. X » Mon Jun 30, 2008 7:45 pm

Just wondering. This is for current themes only, not old ones (even though everyone knows old ones pwnz new).

{Sorry, I couldn't include all themes (it only lets you have 8 poll options at most), so if yours is not on there you can select 'other' and say in your post. List of themes: http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/}

I would probably say my favorite is either Creator or Star Wars (which has been declining of late), but I also like some City, some Indiana Jones, and factory.

What do you people think?

Castle has always been the best and everybody knows it.

All Lego themes are good if you can use them to create a blood filled, chaostic and awesome war.

I voted Agents. That was, of course, in no way influenced by the fact that yesterday, two miraculous events occurred: 1. Spike Had a Bond maraton featuring Pierce Brosnan, my favorite bond actor (although I still haven't seen Casino Royal). Sadly they left out my favorite, Die Another Day. And number 2. a new Lego Catalog arrived with the new Agents sets featured. Which reminds me, superspys are not a new arival on the Brikwars battlefield, as can be seen by the Starship Civilization of Rios. Not to mention the three previous Alpha Team lines...

I honestly haven't bought a lego set in over a year. The latest thing I bought was probably a Knight's Kingdom set. My youngest brother, however, owns most all of the Castle sets, and those are awesome. Especially the Dwarves.

Timedude, have you seen the trailer for the new one, Quantum Solace? It looks awesome.

[09:50] rayhawk: regardless, quantum of solace is still a stupid name for a movie
[09:50] Duane: agreed

what kind of a name is quantum of solace anyway?
sounds like some weird sci-fi or fantasy novel if you ask me.

Quantum:
In physics, a quantum (plural: quanta) is an indivisible entity of a quantity that has the same units as the Planck constant and is related to both energy and momentum of elementary particles of matter (called fermions) and of photons and other bosons. The word comes from the Latin "quantus," for "how much." Behind this, one finds the fundamental notion that a physical property may be "quantized", referred to as "quantization". This means that the magnitude can take on only certain discrete numerical values, rather than any value, at least within a range. There is a related term of quantum number.

Solace:
alleviation or comfort

So my guess at it:

Bond liked someone who got killed.
He wants to find at least the smallest indivisible chunk of comfort...
So he kills everyone on the planet.
The end.

Yeah, I'm not gonna lie: The name is whacked. But, it looks cool. I wanna know who this shadowy new group is. They look like they'll give MI6 a run for their money....

But, I still need to watch Casino Royal. Parents objected after reading somewhere they in the interrogations scene, they take a tazer to his balls. Which I know is in there, but still. That's no excuse to not see a new Bond film.
