What makes Citizen Brick so special?

They tout how they don't use cheap decals or shitty paint... so what do they use to print the designs onto the parts?

Finally a Lego bong, I've been wanting one for ages, and the best thing is that it matches.

I like their printed tiles, and I would totally get a cyclops head. They're way to expensive though.

yeah, they are pretty expensive. Those tiles would look sweet on a tank though... *sigh*

Some of the printed tiles caught my eye, but nothing else on that site looks any good. I've seen better bongs on other websites.

EDIT: All of which seem to have disappeared from the internet for some reason.

I would buy a couple of the S&M guys for Road Warrior forces, but $60 for three guys is way too much, good printing or not.

Good money if people actually buy into the bullshit hype and buy it.... as we've seen here nobody seems to care just how high quality they say it is with those prices.

Only thing that I liked was the cyclopes head and the biker gang dudes but yeah.... no way I'm paying those prices. I already feel like a complete chump paying full price from Lego for most of my stuff. I don't need to be further insulted by their overpriced awesomeness! :x

the only thing im interested in is the neutral face, but only if I was able to get it in bulk for generic troopers.
- I refuse to be stopped by something as irrelevant as logic, the laws of physics, or common sense -

if 20 chickens can fit in a brick, how many pingpongballs does a crocodile have to eat so it can swim faster than a washing machine?
