I gotta say Forestmen. For some strange reason, the whole "Robin Hoodness" about them appeals to me. (COUGH!)forumname
(COUGH!) But that aside, I have other reasons.
Any elf theme that Lego might try and make would just not suite me. I can pretty well imagine the general shape and feel that they would be and I can't imagine it vibing with my ideas. Since Forestmen are their idea, my idea can't go against theirs, theoretically.
Quite frankly, Forestmen are just cooler. I mean apart from being medieval Jedi, what is really cool about elves? Forestmen however, have so much more potential. The possibilities of their nationhood, their relationships with other nations, their relationship with the forest....and there relationships with each other (forestwoman
And then there are the pieces. I'd much rather see figs in the general feel of the old Forestmen, what with peasants and forestwomen, then elf figs. And then the amount of foliage, though large with elves, would, I think, be greater with Forestman.
But all in all, I'm just a sucker for anything that shoots a bow and has merry men.
I build, therefore I am.
