Where have the days gone that LEGO was a friendly and happy toy?
I am sorry but we are matching the categories to the prizes. I agree that LEGO needs to make a few civilian Castle sets. Convincing marketing and retailers the value of non-conflict play would be hard to do. This is an interesting topic but probably deserves its own thread. Please feel free to start one. Thanks.
Well, that's the reason for this thread.
Now we have this contest going on, which is great in itself, but I myself don't like to build fighting scenes. I dare to say there are many more afols who don't either. But, to match the sets I have to build violent moc's to be able to even enter. Which brings me to the following:
Why aren't there any castle sets that don't involve fighting? People in the middle ages mainly worked on the land or in the guilds to bring food on the table. It's not like the middle ages were 1200 years of constant fighting, everywhere all over Europe... People who think it was need to go study history again.
I know, it won't sell. But what message is given to children?
To me, it is a big point, that I have to build violent scenes to enter a contest which is set up partly by TLC.
It's a good thing the new castle sets come out in June over here anyway.
to be clear, this is not a complaint to cc, that's why I'm posting in "dear LEGO".
