Now that's interesting. I'm actually kind of surprised to hear that, with that big Chinese paint scandal going on. My local newspaper showed testimonies from several parents saying that they would categorically refuse to buy anything made in china. And while we all know that Lego is safe and made in a different process, many do not, and would boycott Lego along with the rest of all other Chinese made toys. If you factor in an estimate for how many people are choosing against Lego for something "safer," then this new line could turn out to be incredibly popular. Also it's interesting to notice that now, after the "original" themes have some sort of counterpart (town, castle, and space) Lego is selling very well.
