I'm looking to expand my herd after buying the Medieval Market Village I think. LEGO is so naughty for making their own bovines and then plunking them two by two in sets costing $100 (USD), and without a bull in sight. I like them, but I'm leaning away to the fan-product simply because those udders are awfully obvious. I don't mind having many ladies in the field, but it sure would be NICE if LEGO could get out a decent $30 farm field set for either the brown or black & white herd, pop in at least two more ladies, one bull, a well, some fences and a modern or Castle farmer with a pitchfork & hay bales.
What do you think about these cows? Those fan-products sure look mighty impressive with removable (?!?) udders. Would you hit up this Toys R Us sale (buy 1, get 1 50% off) just for blk & whts, or go with something else? I'm sort of open to non-LEGO as long as they are seamlessly blended into my creations, but I would rather go pure. The trouble with purity is that it took about 30 years to get the official beef, but still not enough bull, from LEGO.
Almost enough to make me a fan of brick-built animals permanently. And yet there are those cows in the Farm and Market sets...
Quite the eNiGmA, is it not?
