Do you prefer the new series or the orignal?

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

Do you prefer the new series or the orignal?

Honestly I much prefer the older gray Power Miner sets from the 70's Much more realistic. Only a few cannons here and there. The new series is much more aimed at kids with all the flashy colors. The original Brock and his son Flint were way better before these latest fleshy versions. And I still can't believe that after 30+ years, we still have only 1 set with Brock's wife! :lol:

From the 70's? Rock Raiders (Power Miners Original Theme) was awesome. Really the only thing the new series has over the old ones are the monsters themselves. The figs, overall set designs, and story were all clearly superior in the originals.

The new sets have too many specialized parts. but I *love* the specialized parts. Though I do wish they were in old grey... :(

Weren't the Rock Raiders from the 90s? I have a bunch of them that I got when I was younger, But they were new, then.
Why on earth was the Empire able to build a moon-sized battle station capable of destroying an entire planet when, at the same time, they're most common data storage unit was still a tape!?

This was a joke thread to parallel the OT vs PT Star Wars issue. There was no 70s era Power Miners to compare to. For all you Power Miners vs Rock Raiders musing we've got a thread for that right over hyar! Poll optional.
