Was Power Miners A Waist Of Product Space?

Well I have to admit I don't like them on bit, the sets are ugly. Yeah I know they got sweet parts and all but should they have made some other theme instead?

I think they're great, I'd pick up the whole line if there were no SW or IJ. Or if sets where alot cheaper....

Anyway I dont think they suck [I dont like the second wave though.. pukebrick ]

The colour scheme I think works well. Also they have SWEET parts. And they're selling well so obviously thats a good sign.

Sure another theme like i dont know Greek or something would be good but I think PW is good. [Even though I'd love a greek theme]

Sweet colours, sweeter recoloured BIONICLE parts ( :legoeyeshutlaughing: ), sweeter still minifig faces and rock monsters, what's not to love?

I think the best thing is that we get Power Miners, SP3 and more Agents play theme sets, all of which I'll be getting sets from in the summer. legosunglasses

Well today I got my first PM set.......... its awesome. I've changed my whole mind of the series round. I couldn't believe how cool it was. Nice colours, great minifigs, amazing pieces. I only got Mine Mech but its heaps cool. The only thing thats kind of disapointing is the size of the rockmonsters. So I've decided, I want to get Stone Chopper, Granite Grinder and possible Claw Digger and Thunder Driller.

I haven't voted because I don't know. Some of the parts and colours are interesting and I'd like to see how they sell.

There of little use to me, I'd like a roll cage and maybe a green or orange motorcycle but apart from that the pieces wouldn't be much use on my train layout.

Not my kind of thing, really. But I supose it's a good 'play theme' for kids. I don't ever play with Lego, I just design and build.

i think the model sets are alright nothing really special.

i always see the miners as the bad guys coming into the monsters homes with dynamite, taking their crystals which they eat (and probably need to live) for their own financial gains. And the crystal king (queen) is just trying to protect is young. if u read the bio's of the monsters on the lego website they sounds alot like propaganda. i like how lego has made a theme that can be taken as the simple baddies v goodies or if looked into deeper a much more rich background filled with much more interesting flawed characters can be found
