Oh geez that's a bit of an oversight isn't it?

I've been just kidding on that one. The bolt motif on the overall reminded me on the insigna, but of course it wouldn't have been put in, intentionally.

Say what you will about the nazis. They did some horrible things, but they looked damn good doing it.

Does anyone else think it's kind of suspicious about the fact that when Lego needed suspects for Policetron to incarcerate, they made up the Blacktron

You heard it here first folks, LEGO is racist.

Octan runs them both, and deliberately keeps them at a constant stalemate.

Well kids need crooks for the cops to catch, and black and grey morality is not something that develops at an early age - in some respects the sp/blacktron dichotomy was the precursor to every single team A versus team B style action theme that was ever since released.

What's more suspicious is that for something usually very mellow and kid-friendly as their themes up to that point, the B1 designs were hella dark and downright sinister! Although there is video evidence for the fact that their ruff and tuff looks were just a facade - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5RdV9SGkiE

you would have to take just as much offense at the mishmash of knights and such in the Castle line for being "culturally insensitive" toward medieval Europe.
I'm pretty sure classic-castle dot com has you covered on that one.

It was also the precursor to Space Police III, in which a police force of racially homogenous officers hunt down a criminal class made up entirely of literal illegal aliens.

Oh totally! The setup of 'versus "the other"' is the action theme formula since the mid-00s, in which usually "the other" are the ones getting raided by minifigs for their resources in their own homeland, and they tend to be vastly outmatched in terms of gear and tech.

Yeah, I think LEGO was really inspired by Coetzee's Waiting for the Barbarians.

I would argue that though Space Police lines all probably operate within the same universe, II and III are newer and more advanced designations as well.

Maybe Blacktron is a freedom-fighting group? Sort of like a cross between the Illuminati and the Black Panthers?

I think you all are reading far more into this than you should be.

I think you need to re-read the topic title. So far I think everyone is reading less into this than they should be, but the thread's just getting started.

Wait, was that your crazy fan theory?

Reason: Full marks for effort, but still lacking the lego or the fan theory. I would bin it, but you can't deprive others of an experience like this.
