lololololol. This is the second time recently I saw someone talk about getting "legal" with TLG (the other being during the Canadian code fiasco with the Millennium Falcun, and admittedly, the person in that instance was rather level-headed and seemed to be more pondering aloud whether the law was with him as oppose to being hot-headed about it.) But seriously, in instances like this, I just think, "What exactly do you want out of this situation?" Depending on the laws in your area (or of where Lego is doing business out of, I'm not too sure who has jurisdiction here) you aren't really entitled to much more than market value and maybe your legal fees. Unless you represent yourself, and then you're really not terribly likely to win against TLG. So, you people are going to hire a lawyer over, at most, a couple hundred dollars? You'd probably get laughed right out of any lawyers' offices.
So, in the case of this poster, let's say you win "fair market value," and Lego gives you some 50 to 85 bucks (that's what I hear they're going for on eBay right now). What will you probably do with the money? GO BUY MORE LEGO! HAHAHAHAHA. "Hey, Lego company, f* you guys for screwing me. Give me teh moneys!!11 Oh, I get teh moneys?!?! Here, take teh moneys back!!!11"
Or, let's take this all the way. You're only so passionate about this because Lego makes a product that you care about. Okay, I can dig that. But, let's imagine your little class-action suit puts TLG out of business. You'd have a LOT of pissed-off AFOLs. That's funny. Now, I know that both of these situations are so unlikely they may as well be considered statistically impossible, but I just think it's funny whenever someone feels slighted enough to blow their top over something so relatively mundane, and these are the kinds of situations I imagine.
