Yeah, especially if you have a minifig of that worthless loser Jango Fett. Smash it with a sledgehammer then toss it into the garbage.

Actually, I was going to take my Jango Fett, strap him to a bottle rocket and try to re-create the ATOC fight scene on Kamino. The sledge hammer will be reserved for my Cloud City Boba Fett. If only there was some way for others to talk me out of this madness! Perhaps a site hosting Lego SW forums?

Good riddens to you and all the mods. This site is a joke anyways. All these rules and restrictions blah blah blah. XD

Happy April Fool's Day. :)

Well Well... I'm gone for a while and tada I find out the sites going down. This really makes me sad but I respect the admin's desicion on this and hope you guys don't lose sleep over this. I remember this site with all the jokes pointed at me. So I say Farewell FBTB and RIP. And for one last time I must do this :facepalm: .

I think it's kind of obvious when you consider the fact that the Admins don't actually have lives ;) And I'm still pretty sure that Ace doesn't exist, instead he is a fabrication of the internet put here to keep the n00bs at bay.

You'd be surprised what some people get up to. My sister-in-law and her sister are 8 months apart in age. Obviously the younger sister was born a little early, but her parents were still up to shenanigans within days of birth number one. Swear to the force I'm not making that up. I shudder when I think about it.

This report, if true, is very sad. I've always enjoyed Lego, and Star Wars Lego has been my new interest for the last 2 years, and it would be sad to see the site go. :'(

On the other hand, considering today's date, if this report is not true, then well played, indeed! I was very much taken in.

Time will tell... ;)

Well I'll admit , my heart sank a little when I read this news that the site will be no more. There is a great wealth of information on this site that takes a lot of effort to maintain. I appreciate all the work you and others do to keep it going.

Then I realized the opportunity this new change presents for me also: If you are getting out of the Lego game, SELL ME YOUR COLLECTION! I'll buy everything you have, except from the Power Miners theme. I didn't buy the "Power Miners theme" last year, and I'm still "not buying it". :P

To everything there is a seaon...enjoy your life in the new season.

In protest of this site shutting down I will forever use the term...LEGOS.

If the end of FBTB is truly happening then it is quite a sickening coincidence that the announcement was less than an hour into the day known as "April Fools". If it isn't true then the prank is just (in my best GEICO caveman voice) NOT COOL!!!

FBTB should have been shut down years ago. Everyone knows that Mega Bloks are the best.

Even if your message isn't true, it's still sad. Anyways, open up the forums tomorrow.

I agree....I liked the Power Miners take over theme last year better. Much more cool and subtle. This one tugged on our strings a bit too heavily
