Agreed and I've been saying the same things on other forums too.
I wasn't all in with the planet sets but I would buy whatever caught my eye or was on sale or clearance. These could be offered as S@H exclusives.
And I've also been saying there have been some generall questionable decisions from Lego within the past year or two, this one just adds to the pile. Don't get me wrong, I still love Lego and as a company they are miles ahead, customer service wise, then a lot of other places. I've collected many other lines from other companies - Mattel, Hasbro, Playmates, etc - over the years and Lego blew those companies away not just in customer service but in overall general good decisions and collector satisfaction but not so much lately. They set the bar so high, maybe its our fault to being accustomed to it, being spoiled by it?
