Thanks for clarifying, Ben. Sounds fair.
My intention was to discuss the use of Kreo D&D parts where there was no LEGO equivalent either because TLG hadn't or couldn't make the part. But from Ben's response, I think that's verboten. Anyway, I can't control what other people post, so I couldn't stop them from discussing Kreo D&D sets more broadly once I started the thread. So to stay safe, I won't start that topic.
I don't have any Kreo yet. But my understanding is that their production standards are pretty high and almost as good as TLG's. There are plenty of rubbish clone brands out there some of which misappropriate TLG's intellectual property. Kreo isn't one of them. Sure, they're jumping on the construction toy and minifigures bandwagon, but the first plastic LEGO bricks were produced by TLG under licence, so TLG isn't wholly original either. While I condemn intellectual property theft categorically, legitimate competition such as Kreo is actually good for FOLs as it keeps TLG on its toes. The Kreo D&D line, for example, might spur TLG to produce more sets that are generic fantasy which would be great for fantasy-loving FOLs.
