*shrug* The battle pack is a much better army builder anyway.

All this means to me is that I will not buy any more of these sets. Not a big deal in the long run, but I wonder if ti will impact their magnet sales.

I've sent the Lego company a stern letter of disapproval. here is a copy.

Email to the Lego Company Head Office wrote:Dear Sir/Madam,

I have been an avid collector and customer of Lego for over twenty years and my son has followed me in my Lego building hobby, between us we have quite a collection. I have always enjoyed the new and exciting sets and ideas that endlessly pore from your company onto the toy shelves and eagerly await each new release of this fabulous toy. You might therefore imagine my surprise when I heard that you are considering gluing the mini-figures supplied as part of the fridge magnet sets to their stands. If this is indeed the case then I would just like to make my view known as a loyal customer with regards your new innovative marketing strategy.

I do trust you will eat shit and die from my fond regards and sesonal fuck you.

P.s: How's your mom?
