I think for semi action slash historical theme like ninjago, they should drop the bad non human vs good human theme. When you have competition like the ninjago spinners between kids, stick to somewhat historically accurate stuff, like maybe samurais vs ninjas. Make it somewhat neutral - like all healthy competition. Too much of good vs evil will cause the kids to question why he lose. Not good. Whereas neutral competition teaches kids that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. The important thing is you try harder next time.
As for (semi) historically accurate theme, it'll actually help kids to learn history through playtime. May spur enough interest in kids to dig up history books to learn about feudal japan and maybe japanese culture. Right now, there's very little educational value to ninjago.
Also, parents maybe more inclined to buy theme sets for kids if there's educational value in there. You could probably sell books on ninjago. Like an encyclopedia or something. Aka did you know ... Char A was inspired by an actual shogun in feudal japan for eg.
As for some sets that a little historically accurate, I am all for that. I really wish LEGO would delve into some historical themes about actual events and actual people. I'd love to see a historical ancient Greece, Egypt, Roman, Celtic, Germanic theme.
Playing with LEGO when I can. Where does the time go?
It would be cool if Lego ran a promotion with these and for a LIMITED TIME each of the history Architecture sets had a big red label on the box:
NOW with more rubble pieces!
Oh well. Never hurts to dream.
Also want to mention that there is also a City Brickmaster Book set to be released in June as well I believe (now that, I did pre-order for the Wifey).

Here is what it looks like then: (pretty CGI picture)
Here is what it looks like today: (Picture of flat land, no discernable building structure).
lol... ok ok, I admit, I have a sick, twisted sense of humor. :twisted:
