Post by legoswelove » Mon Apr 01, 2013 9:58 am

Lego has agreed to stop the production because it offends the Muslim religion ....

Totally agree. LEGO must stop producing such offensive material. I always knew there was something foolish with this set!

Poor attempt at April fools. I enjoyed the news article that said Disney purchased all the rights to Tolkien and LotR. That was actually funny

This was only released in July, 2012.

Sets should disappear from shelves quickly and sets should appreciate rather quickly.

apparently Jabba's Palace looks like the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul (Constantinople) Turkey.

Jabba's Palace is the worst representation of the Hagia Sophia I have ever seen.

Sets should disappear from shelves quickly and sets should appreciate rather quickly.

But LEGO made the sets before then. So 212, and 2013 they made the sets. Then there will be enough trough 2014. That's completely normal. It's a $120 set, they don't need that many. Plus look at NinjaGo, the snake theme sets were retired within several weeks, half the sets were never even on shelves around here because. LEGO sets retire VERY quickly now. This was probably already set to retire and LEGO annouced it to suck up some religious freaks.

LEGO only planned to sell Jabba's Palace until the end of 2013 anyways. So they aren't doing anything they weren't already planning doing already.

Lego already announced that they didnt cave to anyone much less some whiney turkish muslims, and anyone saying that that complainers had any bearing on anything is full of crap. Two year product cycle, completely normal.

Does this start the 'investment' hoarding?
