rushiosan, I just want to deeply apologize for the fact that FBTB did not meet your lofty standards of only posting positive, vapid, and empty comments that see Lego stuff only on a scale of 9 to 10. I hate that you had to come here, to the only site on the internet, and had to see something that you didn't agree with, or that were critical of something. There is no place in this world for something as pointless as opinions, and I hate that you had to see it.
If only there was some option other than coming here, and being forced to reading something that leaves you no other choice than to complain about our content...
This monday I've seen lots of criticism about this set around the internetz. Most part of them were pointing stuff like "hey, I don't like molded heads, they don't match with LEGO standards" or "the set seems expensive considering piece count", "I don't follow Simpsons show anymore, so I won't buy it". These were people (including me) poiting what they actually didn't like about the upcoming line, and well, that's probably a good way to start a reasonable discussion...
It's far different from writing things like "wow, worst set ever", "this sucks wookiee balls", "I couldn't care less about that huge tan box". The most part of posts on FBTB forums feels like pesky 13yo kids comments from Youtube. Isn't this some kind of AFOL community?
That's what annoys me, never the criticism/opinions itself. If you guys want to discuss something and say "I don't like that set" just go ahead and do it, we're free men, point what you didn't like, how it could have been improved, modded or whatever, let's discuss and exchange opinions, so we'll be going somewhere instead drowning in vapid and empty cursing. Reading people acting like monkeys on a site you just love to browse (FBTB is probably my #1 source for licensed LEGO news) isn't the most pleasant thing if you ask me.
