Belleville or Paradisa?

Though we don't cover them in detail on FBTB, we all still love our Castle, Pirates, and Space LEGO too.

Belleville or Paradisa?

Postby meeotch » Wed Aug 19, 2009 9:53 am

I want to know what you think is better. Personally, I'd have to go with Paradisa, just because it's more City system-like, meaning the buildings wouldn't really look out of place in a city made up of Lego's other official City sets. It could be like a Malibu section of town, whereas the rest of the city is more like North Hollywood. Plus you gotta' love the female minifigs. The Belleville ones make me feel like I'm playing with dolls.

This is such a lame thread, everyone knows Paradisa is better. Belleville is just Galidor without cyborgs.

I prefer Paradisa as well as the whole sets.
But Belleville has some nice accessories which can be very useful.

Another vote for Paradisa, but my new Ewok glider from 8038 wouldn't be what it is today without the parts from Belleville.

Paradisa is a seriously under-appreciated theme :-)

I discovered Paradisa around the time my daughter was just getting old enough to handle System sets without eating them (i.e. about 7 or so years after the line had already come and gone), so it has a very special place in my heart. She likes Belvile too, but seems to enjoy the standard minifig stuff more (daddy is very proud). There are some interesting elements in the Belville theme from time-to-time, and just having an extant line specifically for girls is nothing to sneeze at in this conflict-heavy/boy-biased LEGO world we live in. That said, Paradisa blows Belville out of the water for LEGO traditionalists and I miss the theme. Trying to score new/unopened sets on eBay or Bricklink would cost you a fortune but for the tiniest stocking-stuffer type sets. At least there are still a few pink buckets now and then, but it looks like "Paradisa Pink" (aka "pink" on Bricklink) died with the Paradisa line...they're using slightly different shades of "bright" and "dark" pink these days).
