I was wondering of a way to make:
1) people who like model building
2) people who like the action oriented themes with conflicts
3) people who like both...
So the thought hit me at BrickLink.com forums when I was discussing the value of Military Lego sets. Until a member said something about the whole war thing being bad.
There are people who buy Lego and dislike the war-elements, and people who buy Lego to make BrickWars, and then those who do both (mainly the Castle fans, and Space fans). Good well designed sets with lots of play/conflict value.
So I thought... why not seperate the two?
Like having action oriented sets and model oriented sets sold separately (greater
profits), and have them in the same line.
-Action set = Stallion Knights -vs- Barbarians set with the Stallion Knights fighting the barbarians around a small outpost.
-Model set = Stallion Knights' Castle (no combat at all, aka no "enemy minifigs") just a large, very well designed Castle (like our MOCs, but on a 48x48 or 48x32 baseplate/raised-baseplate) with some Stallion Knights minifigs thrown in.
That way both the "warhawks" and the "peaceniks" can be happy.
