THOSE MEDDLING HARRY POTTER BASTARDS!!! The entire line never sold really good anyway... WHY!??! WHYHAhAHAHY??!?!?

Actually that one was before my time, otherwise I wouldn't be allowed to talk about it even now. I heard about it from the lugnet crew. (Lugnet was a much different place back then.) Even when I was in the very bowels of Lego headquarters myself, Lugnet usually had a better idea of what was going on at Lego than the people around me, so they were my main source of news for a long time.

I think the HP line actually did really well. I never worked on any of the licensed themes myself, so I can't say for sure, but I seem to remember that the first couple years were a big success.

LOTR proooobably would have sold better. but yeah, HP totally fits the "i'm eight years old" group better. if not for better sales, then it's a better image for TLC.

So... Absolutely no chance you can give us some goody tidbits on stuff you worked on while at Lego? Not even a few tiny things? Or 5 fun facts... Or something? Please?

I think the whole NDA thing kinda shoots that idea in the head.

Nah, it completely rips off the head.

Meh... Whatever happened to the good 'ol days when a knight could kill a knight. Now it's either rainbow knights killing nameless grunts or awesome knights killing nameless (ugly) grunts. At least the knights are cool nowadays. I miss man vs. man.

Man vs. man is immoral in the eyes of parents, which sucks. I would trade my legs for new classic castle.

I dunno about legs... I might want those. I might trade my some of my lesser body parts for classic castle/space, but I'm not so sure about my legs...

i dunno, then you'd get a cool wheelchair, or be like professor X and get a HOVERING ROBOT DEATH chair. i'm fairly certain it shot missiles.
