  3. Well the LEGO Group has an entire department dedicated to the collaboration, support and stimulation of the AFOL Community - it's called the AFOL Engagement Department and they run the LEGO Ambassador Network, the Lead User Lab and LEGO Ideas. So I would certainly hope that's indication that the company listens. Another example of listening could be the dissatisfaction in the AFOL Community when the Chinese Celebrations sets were announced - that led to red flags being raised inside the company by the AFOL Engagement Department and that ultimately led to the end of regional exclusives as they are now to be globally available after 3-6 months. Also it is estimated that the AFOL Community make up 6-8 percent of the sales. At least that is the number I've seen in one of the annual reports. First and foremost the LEGO products are intended for the core audience - kids aged 7-12(-ish), but the LEGO Group has also stated that AFOLs are now considered a target audience and more will be done for the AFOL Community moving forward - and this adds on top of the products currently aimed at adults such as the Creator Expert sets, Star Wars D2C products and massive Technic sets (I am sure there are plenty other sets in this category).

    Thanks for all your kind words. I'll still be around from time to time. EB will always be close at heart to me.

    It's been a long time since I joined EB back in 2004 as member number 101. And now it's time for me to resign and hand over the torch. I'll always think of my time as Star Wars Forum Moderator as some of the best internet time, I've ever had. I am not leaving because of disagreements or me being pissed about something. I leave because it's time for me to move on. Some time ago I decided that if given the chance to work for TLG, then I'd go for it. I went and got the job, knowing that it meant the end for me as a "regular AFOL". Thanks to the staffers for letting me work with them and learn from them And thanks to all of you for making the Star Wars Forum a really warm and great place to share our mutual hobby To Kiel and Stash: Goodbye and take care of my eternal love. To the Rebel Bloggers - kick megablocks - the blog is now yours to share with Kiel. "Goodbye And Thanks For All The Fish!"

    [REPORT] Visit to Star Wars Miniland

    Thanks for a great report Praiter. I'm sure you're a very lucky man to have a wife that knows where to draw the line. Without a strong wife we'd all go nuts and spend everything on LEGO. Make sure to buy her flowers for being in the real world. Sounds like you had a great trip - perhaps you should convince her to take a trip to Billund for the EB Event?

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    Kinda figured it'd be too late for them to discover that they blew it I guess they meant the video to stay secret a little longer than they succeeded in.

    Mini Modular: Newspaper Building

    The pins are there because? Either have the pins or loose the bars and clips Both can't be there - it'll ruin the connect-to-the-next-building idea, wont it? And is that 4 christmas trees on each side of the front?
