Heh, this is fun!
You thought Christiansen means christian? as in the religion? :D
I know, I shouldn't make fun of this, but... hahaha!
"Behave Umgarla!", "ok" :twisted:

serious, how can anyone build and create mocs witout even knowing the background of tlc and the Cristiansen family?
Anyways, I don't know how long it took me to stop laughing after reading your post Mediamaster, but I truly apologize if I offended you...

Well...actually a lot of people who build MOCs don't know the history of lego. I do, but there are a lot of fans of all ages who don't know and don't care. MediaMaster made a simple mistake and he apologized for it, I don't think he deserves to be ridiculed for his lack of knowledge about the Christiansen family.

Anyway, back on topic, I hope TLC doesn't move its manufacturing to China. There probably wouldn't be drop in quality but I like the fact that it is in Billund where it all started.

just my 2 cents,

Danish. Not Dutch, Danish.

It's not a hugely important point, but in light of the whole discussion concerned Billund (which, for those of you who haven't picked up on it yet, is a Danish town where LEGO originated, and which is pretty much entirely given over to the production of LEGO), I thought it should perhaps be refreshed in everyone's mind that we are talking Danish. From Denmark.

No offense was taken, and I assure you all that none is intended.

Dutch is the language of the Dutch, the people who live in Holland, which is more properly known as the Netherlands. It is something of an Anglicization of the Dutch word for their language.

Interestingly, Dutch being a language closely related to German there has been some confusion between the two, especially considering that the German word for their own language is Deutsch (or something similar. Ask Jojo). Hence, the "Pennsylvania Dutch" spoken by the Amish in the States, is actually a dialect of German.

Not that any of this has anything to do with LEGO, except perhaps to show how worldwide the habit is...
