What trouble did the rumors of the Knights Kingdom cause? The very day that Jake was saying not to act on rumors in his statements on Lugnet, the UK LEGO Magazine was publishing pictures of the upcoming sets that were pretty much in keeping with the rumors. So it was a question of a huge uproar over the rumors of these sets versus a huge uproar over the actual release of these sets. Yes, there was some extra noise generated by the inclusion of the "these are just rumors, wait and see" type posts, but the rest of the uproar would have been unchanged if it had waited until after the official release of the photos.
There is a new Knights Kingdom series coming next year, which does include what we call “constraction” (constructible action) figures...
They are a new dimension to the theme - an addition - which we believe will help draw even more kids to the Castle theme.
Again, I'm not arguing against the no leak policy, just the reasoning for it. If the reason is "we want to play nice with them so they'll play nice with us", that makes total sense.
My only point was that the same irrational actions based on leaks would have most surely happened a few days later when the official photos came out.
