New focus?

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

New focus?

Postby theJudeAbides » Wed Apr 01, 2009 2:56 am

Wow, is FBTB finally refocusing from lame old Star Wars to Power Miners? If so, it's about dang time. I mean, Power Miners are soooo much cooler than Star Wars, and those little rock-munchkins are adorable, unlike the fugly Clone Wars minifigs. Good show, old chaps, good show.




Actually, I like the color scheme, although the background image is a bit gaudy, but that's probably just because green's my favorite color.

The beauty of a LEGO MOC is not the elements that go into it, but the way those elements are put together.

Yea, I like this as well. I guess some SW fans will be upset, but with all the Clone Wars they've come up with latley, I find other themes more exciting.

People at other forums (like 1000Steine.de) think this would be an April fool.
I think we need to convince them that it is serious.
Power Miners are so much cooler.

The New Focus

Brilliant guys! I am so impressed that you were bold enough to finally stop focussing on all of that boring star wars theme. Power Miners rule! Thanks for starting this day the way I had hoped :P

This is better than the old FBTB ever was. I embrace this welcome change whole-heartedly. Furthermore, your great review of the Chrome Crusher has inspired me to buy it ASAP. Thanks!

Seems like a lot of work for an April Fools joke, but I have to admit, I got quite a laugh when I came over here this morning.

There's nothing funny about the sheer awesomeness that is the current Power Miners line.

I've been waiting for this for a loooong time. I didn't want to be the first to say how boring and lame star wars is but it seems I'm not alone! I've taken my star wars legos off the shelves months ago and replaced them with power miners, I knew it was only a matter of time before everybody else followed suit.

This is by far the smartest move FBTB could make. Bravo. I love the new colour scheme and graphics.

Well, gotta go find out which rock monster I am.

Lego star wars has died! Taking away FBTB from star wars is like removing a vital organ from a being! Not only did lego star wars die, but FBTB has died aswell, consumed by power miners...

I really didn't care about Star Wars LEGO, and I really don't care to much about Power Miners, so, nothing really changed for me ;)

This must be the real April Fool Joke here. Someone trying to pass themselves off as Austin. He hasn't been here for a couple months now. I can tell this isn't him, usually Austin has much more wit in his posts. Also Austin isn't really into Power Miners at all. Everyone knows his hobbies are paper bag puppets and DUPLO.

It was good to see his name on the boards again though.
