Okay. It's understandable that people are upset by the MWT getting dismissed, but let's look at some of the details first:
1) Cuusoo wasn't created as a "theme-builder." TLG has there own themes and Cuusoo was a way to give fans their own chance at an official set. The Western Theme was released during my dark ages and, I too, am disappointed that MWT won't become a set. It would have been a lower cost way for me to bulk up my growing collection. But this being Lego, we can always build our own.
2) As for Lone Ranger & MWT (& Modular Buildings) not conflicting. Think about it. We're talking about 3 seperate themes that all blend together.
"I want the one with the big buildings."
"The Pet Store?"
"No, the Bank"
"No, the western one!"
"Oh, with Tonto!"
"NO! Oh, nevermind... I'll get it myself."
(Ok. I threw a 4th theme in there to make a point about non-Lego fans...)
3) BTTF is the first Cuusoo project to be green-lighted that requires a license. Being the fourth official set, this is promising news. It means that TLG is willing to go after the costs if the fanbase is there.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, this is newly released info. Do we have to jump to conclusions and say that one decision is better than the other?
