I think it sucks that Mega Bloks is getting all the cool licenses and not Lego.

Lego Would never make a Starcraft series (or a halo one for that matter) because they wont make guns(See second quote) and as for Warcraft it would appeal to a older audience while Lego is trying to go for a younger one. So while it would be awesome if Lego got these licenses but I don't think it will ever happen :( .

While I agree Lego will most likely never do stuff like HALO and Starcraft/Warcraft, it is not for the reason you give. Lego does make guns. They make several as a matter of fact.

To quote the link you gave:
The basic aim is to avoid realistic weapons and military equipment that children may recognize from hot spots around the world and to refrain from showing violent or frightening situations when communicating about LEGO products. At the same time, the purpose is for the LEGO brand not to be associated with issues that glorify conflicts and unethical or harmful behavior.


So they want to avoid doing an AK 47 or an M4 Carbine. They also want to avoid anything that seems to glorify conflict, like HALO and Starcraft/Warcraft. :wink:

Yet we're getting clone wars stuff. Quite double standards going on here, TLC... meh, I guess it boils down to the fact that the target audience is mostly kids, not teens/adults, and their interests.

The only reason this sucks is that we won't be getting Diablo stuff.

Megablox appealing to an older audience? But don't children over the age of 9 have enough sense to see the LEGO superiority?

Actually the only thing that keeps me excited is how warcraft weapons will turn out for minifigs. If we're getting a minifig-scale frostmourne, then sign me up.

:shock: OMG that hadn't oucoured to me but it would be awesome :shock:

Also I am also interested to see how they handle certain beasties for instance zerglings and nightsabers I am a real fan of the fire and Ice dragons And I think I might be interestedin a nice zerglings swarm.

While I agree this could be a good source of weapons etc, I am less excited about the total idea. MegaBlocks has disapointed too many times with crap quality and poor packing QC. :?

Hopefully they have some marine battle packs or individuals packs, or something like that. I'm actually strongly considering buying a few if they do. Think about it, that would be a great way to have multiple suit of power armour or hardsuit in a Brikwars army.

I just hope they come in more than one colour (although I doubt they will).
