New Forum Title
Posted 28 March 2005 - 11:59 PM
Some members have been asking for a Pirates forum but we felt that as the two lines are so similar it would be better to have one forum for both.
I hope that nobody is upset by this (mister_phes ;)) but if you do feel the need to complain then just PM me and don't start a big rant of a topic :)
Your friendly Adminstrator,

Yes, I approve whole heartedly with this forum name. It makes perfect sense to have Pirate and Castle together, which is definitely better than before as Pirates didn't even get a mention!
However, you might want to change that to LEGO Castle, Pirate and Viking so you don't upset Blood Jay :-D

If you look through the old Lego Catalogues you'll notice very few of the themes had the theme title proceeded by the sub-theme title.
E.g. Imperial Guards were not Pirates: Imperial Guards
or Blacktron wasn't Space: Blacktron
And if you go here: http://library.brick...e/c93de-38.html
You'll see the 1993 catalogu page for Ice Planet 2002 and in the bottom left corner you'll see two Blacktron mini-figures encased in ice. If Ice Planet WASN'T part of the Space theme then it wouldn't have a tie in with another sub-theme from Space. Does that make sense? I always assumed it was a space sub-theme.
Elements aren't really an indication of which theme a sub-theme belongs to. Most elements appear in many themes anyway, eg castle elements also appeared in Pirates, Paradisa, Town, Adventurers, Western, etc.
Ninja on the other hand is a bit more ambiguous as there are no other sub-theme tie ins. And going by the 1999 catalogue there were NO castle sets available that year.
