Dear LEGO, please do not
abandon these swords:
They are so much better in every respect than the recently released swords from the current Knights' Kingdom (KK2) theme. The old swords pictured above have an almost appropriate size compared to the minifigs, they can be held in more than one spot, they can be stuck in cross holes, they have a natural colour (natural in LEGO dimensions) and they have a way more accurate shape than the aforementioned KK2 swords.
When I discovered the first Viking sets I was really upset that also here are included KK2 swords rather than the good old type of sword, even though the good old swords had been pictured in the preview pictures.
The new KK2 swords are too big. They have an unpropitious shape. They are too floppy. They are not versatile in handling. They come in unnatural colours for a sword (red? yellow? copper?). They are downright ugly. So please, LEGO don't abandon the good old swords in favour of these new, ugly swords!
Thanks in advance
This is just the sort of nonsense up with which I will not put.
