Meh, their loss. Without MJF BTTF is dead in the water while we still strive.
Short time focus wins over long term (they think).

Our internet warships must leave the EVE universe and start orbital bombardment of planet Lego!

WAR! WAR! WAR!

You only realise you life has been a waste of time, when you wake up dead.

Shocked


No LEGO RIFTER?

This is indeed very sad news. More than likely part of the prelude for the 12/21/12 doomsday.


Sad

The number of "use mega blocks instead" replies in this thread really disappoints me. If you've ever had Legos then you know mega blocks are not the same.

Also, the beauty of Lego is that if there is no set, you can just make it yourself.

Mega blocks are the suck. It's like settling for shoe leather because you couldn't get a steak.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

Frankly I think Lego is missing out. They fail to realize that the base customers that made them what they are today are the people like us in our 20s-40s, not the little kids they are trying to pander to right now. I am sure there is a huge market for Lego's with adults. They just need to broaden their horizons a bit. As someone else so aptly stated in this thread...their loss.

Bounties for all! https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=2279821#post2279821

Megablocks FTW.

You only know about mega blocks for two reasons

1)You're Cheap

2)You have kids.

Well, so much for that. Who has a paper craft rifter pattern?

I think CCP is missing a great nitch with papercraft kits.

I'm quite sure it went bit like this;

"EVE Online? What's that? Some niche game... and this is a large model with tons of bricks used, making it expensive, ensuring that less copies of the product would be sold (so per-design overhead would have to be sunk into the price of less units)... naaah"

Fairly simple case, really...



While your argument is logical and completely correct..... i don't care i want my dam lego rifter Attention

So, they got the 10,000 votes but decided against it anyway? So, in other words, our votes meant absolutely nothing, as they threw them out the window anyway. Great.

Lol

Nice.

That's how LEGO's should be built - freestyle. Not by pre fab kits like they sell nowadays.

Reminds me how years and years ago I'd have my nephews separate the different pieces into various piles by shape and color, then I'd show them how to build all sorts of things to play with, such as Airplanes, 3 Stage Rocket ships, Tanks / Armored Personnel Carriers, Castles and Pagoda Towers, etc.

Ahhhh, memories.

Bummer. Guess it's time for Plan B. If inkjet printers can be used to "print" human tissue, then there's no reason why we can't print a Rifter out of Bacon.

It was a LEGO business decision and a simple one...

Who the hell other then us cares about a lego rifter? All the other selections were far more well known.

It's a site to present ideas, not a competiton Straight


And one of the ideas will be made​​, and it is the idea that presented a collaborator of the site and a team full of people (how many people are needed to invent a LEGO?)

It's as if CCP makes a story contest and win a ISD. It can happen, but is wrong. Lol
