Looking over the years of Lego I have noticed a trend. A trend that is quite apparent in the City theme. That being the city sets themselves leaning slightly away from the civil side, your fireman, police officer et al, and leaning more towards your average civilian "dwellers." The farmer; a business man, even a nice young man with a hoodie and what resembles a smart car.
For 2010 I've noticed quite a bit more of these sets within the City theme.
I am overjoyed with what this could possibly mean for the Castle, or more recently dubbed "Kingdoms" theme.
Lego, I implore you to take this proverbial ball, and run with it, run far into the middle ages, and score a goal for the medieval peasants.
My Lego King has a vast amount of soldiers who keep a watchful eye over 4 loyal, taxpaying villagers.
The King and I would appreciate it greatly if this City trend drifted towards "Kingdoms" and "Castle." The King of course needs the taxes, and I personally would love the flavor of adding more beautiful peasants (and their livestock in vast abundance**Please**) to my Lego creations.
