Hang on, yes Duplo is LEGO. It's LEGO's preschool brand and has been for decades. It's not System, but the bricks are still LEGO bricks in the same sense that Technic elements are. The only difference is that Duplo parts are rarely used in other themes whereas Technic bricks are.
Yes, I'm aware of that. Good grief, I've been around long enough to know about duplo! What I meant is it's not LEGO
Clearly the LDD team must have been thinking the same way, otherwise we'd have had duplo included as standard, no?
I can't personally say I've ever seen a duplo piece in a normal lego set, whereas of course technic parts appear pretty much as commonplace. As such, I can't imagine there are many people out there who would be so desperate to see duplo blocks included among LDD's repertoire. Probably far fewer infact, than those demanding every Bionicle piece ever created...
