Looks good as is, has a weathered/rusted look to it. You might turn it too boring if you make it clean.

So am I the only one not liking the new starwars lego? Seems too overwealming to me, and I don't like any of the 1/2/3 series vehicles at all.

Also, does anyone else feel that lego is selling out too much? I mean, just look at it, starwars lego, batman lego, speed racer lego, indy lego, etc.

I'm really liking their own created series much better these days. I still hope that the new space ones are good as I still havn't seen them yet...

I am seeing your points there...

...nonetheless here's my latest. Still haven't taken myself to see Clone Wars yet so I feel sorta wrong buying The Twilight when I have no firsthand experience flying it.
Also another Mars Mission just coz I thought this was a pretty cool fighter.

I don't mind Lego Batman at all though.

The current castle line is really really good.

I liked the first run of it with the skeletons best.

And I really like the town sets. Looks like that is their main staple as it's been going strong over the years.

I recently read that in the USA, Star Wars is the most successful Lego line, but globally, Lego City (Town, Police, Fire, etc.) is king.

No, I mean their main staple. They've kept the town line and keep expanding into different aspects every year.

Ah. Gotchya. The same article reflected that City, Space and Castle are their staples. They will always revisit each periodically.

Great lot Fungal. Very nice. I like the older sets compared to the new ones in the sense that there's a lot more obvious conventional Lego pieces being used. Not that I don't like the smooth surfaces a lot of today's legos have, it's a nice classic feel.

The first 4 Exo-Force units. They look very nice and there's the great fold up flaps to boot. Can't wait to build them. Lots of wasted space though.
