    I noticed that the 2010 page on Brickpedia states that the Technic line will be discontinued next year. I wasn’t able to find any other mentions of this on the web. Is this “real” or “rumor”? What does this mean for the future of technic parts if true?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello LFan:
    great job with the blog as always. I grew up as a fan of the original Lego pirates and was ecstatic when i saw that the theme made the return.
    Unfortunately, I thought the new pirate sets were far less impressive than their old counterparts in the late 80s and 90s. The current sets don’t even compare to the old classics like 6276/6277 and 6285/6286. It seems TLG did not put much emphasis on the theme like it had back when it introduced the line. There were more pirate sets released, better design (imo), and more pieces than are now.

    There certainly seems to be a good following for the pirates line so I am not sure why TLG seemed to pull back from a theme that has had a significant following over the years.

    What do you think?

    PS: While the Imperial Flagship looks impressive, it is not part of the main set theme.

    Dear LFan,

    As a active bionicle fan I can tell you where most any given bionicle element comes from. This is not to say the brickopedia in my head is flawless- every once in a while I will be baffled by an odd piece. But across the web I have seen an abundence of odd- colored Mata and Nuva masks- for example, white Mirus or red KauKaus. These masks are not in any set, Toa, Matoran, Rahi, or otherwise (I checked). Where did these come from, and where might I get some?

    Why is it that my instruction booklets are alway folded in half even though there is *usually* room in the box for it to ship flat. The collector in my finds this frustrating as my instructions almost always have some form of damage on them before I ever put an oily thumbprint on them.
    Thanks, Trevor
