Like a said earlier in the thread, if that happened, I'd HAVE to 'collect them all!"That was my sentiment exactly (see earlier in this thread). Since then, my son (who is soon to turn six) has really developed a love for legos, and I don't think I can resist trying to nudge him toward liking joes via these building sets. The opportunity is right there.
And if he hates them, I'll make tiny custom vintage-looking cardbacks with yoda-sized blisters and make something unique
Yeah, it's financially sound if collectors are the only market, but I can only imagine how confused kids are going to be when they see Law and Order or Clutch.Not really if you consider how well the Battleship movie-tie-in Kre-O sets performed. That was an epic trainwreck. They didn't even make it to the lego isle, just straight to clearance where they gathered dust.
Honestly, I would not even blink at these if they were based on the movies. The only hope of selling me Joe legos is to have them brimming with nostalgia. I get excited about a tiny Clutch. I wouldn't give two tiny lego turds about a Kre-O Tatum.
Not really. There is a snake eyes, storm shadow, flint, jinx, duke, etc. There are plenty of characters for movie fans to recognize even if the deco isn't 100% movie accurate.Yeah, it's financially sound if collectors are the only market, but I can only imagine how confused kids are going to be when they see Law and Order or Clutch.
