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

Like I said in the post, I was pointing out that the item was there before but had since been removed. Thus, logically, the link doesn't work any more. That's the point.

Oh, sorry. It must be my computer. It sent me to a page that said "This Webpage Can Not Be Found"

...okay...the point of the broken link by Morgan was to say "hey...this link that used to work, doesn't any more, see [broken link]"

It was your computer, it's just that the source of the error lay between the keyboard and the chair. Next time you come swaggerin' in like a big ol' smart ___, make sure you don't end up looking like the other kind of ___. ;)

Is it just me, or is $49.99 for 259 pieces outrageous?

Postby BlueDragonZ » Tue Nov 03, 2009 4:29 pm

Check out this image i found showing 4 new rock monsters from the power miners theme ! (couldn't put image here as its too big) I find the orange eruptorr rock monster to be the coolest. Also look at the new pieces ! The rock monsters are partially transparent now !

I have to agree with Ace. I liked the original Rock Monsters much better.

I've got at least some interest in Eruptorr. The small ones are kind of interesting.

I LOL'd at combustix's name for some reason. I have no idea why.

Considering I never bought into the Power Miners theme before today, let's just say that these rock monsters being unveiled hasn't piqued my interest any more.

Why'd they make the eyes on the little ones all lame? I thought the first PM wave of rock monsters fell into the "if it ain't broke..." category. They're getting a little carried away if you ask me.

I know... I mean, Combustix? Seriously? That's just pushing it...

I'm really not liking the black rock being used in the little rock monsters at all, I think it sort of clashes with the transparent colors on the rest of the body. And I have to agree with the 'Kov, their eyes are lookin' pretty bad. I like the drooling lava on "Eruptorr" (again, really?), but other than that, he looks kind of meh, especially with those questionable tentacle-like molds shooting out of his back.

I guess I could sum up my opinion by saying; I really don't like these, and prefer the old ones. >:P Add me to the "ALL UGLY" posse...

Aren't there new lava pieces erupting from the big one's back?

I laughed the first time I read that too. It sounds like the battle cry for the gay mafia- Combustix. :lol:

Let's just hope cause of this FBTB will still stay attached to PM even though the new ones are UGLY as Ace said.

I kind of like them all, especially that big monstrosity. I do agree that those red eyes are a bit strange, though. I thought I read somewhere recently that the storyline for the new wave of PM has them going deeper into the planet and these newer rock monsters are the denizens of these more molten environs, hence the more crystal/lava look.
