danth posted a topic in General LEGO DiscussionINTRO: A large contingent of Lego fans prefer stickers over prints. And that may be an understatement. Many of us cherish prints and despise stickers. I am one of them. I'd like to have a thread where I, and other print fans, can explain why we love prints. And safe space where we can talk about why we don't like stickers. And just maybe, try to figure out how to get Lego to actually give us prints instead of stickers. The reason for this is that I got into a debate in the Unpopular Opinions thread. "Nothing is wrong with stickers" they said. A truly unpopular opinion. I passionately listed reasons to dislike stickers, but then realized: that thread is not the place. People need a thread where they can express such heresy freely. So I gave sticker lovers the last word. But this thread? Hopefully this thread can be for us printed part lovers and sticker haters!

My list of recent cool sets with no stickers/cool prints CLOSING: For me, when opening a new Lego set as a kid, printed pieces were magical. They were the parts that made our sets come to life. Whether a control panel, a computer console, stony wall, or an emblazoned battle shield, just a handful of these sprinkled in could make a vaguely pleasant configuration of bricks into a real set. The were only second to minifigs in that regard, IMO. Imagine a space ship without these? A spaceship would spin out of control with just a plain slope in the cockpit! Or a castle set without these? Lego knights wouldn't know who the enemy was. Orderly battles would turn into free-for-all melees! But with prints, we have order and goodness.
