Did you not read the section in the terms of service where any ideas posted to the brikwars forum may be appropriated by Mike without compensation and sold to Lego?
The Minifigures line was totally my concept pitch, I admit. I think I've talked about it before.
I used to pitch all kinds of BrikWars ideas to Lego back when it was my job to pitch ideas to Lego, but that was before even the Frappr forums. So if I was stealing ideas, it would had to have been from pre-forum guys like lorbaat.
The reason you're seeing all of them coming out on retail shelves now, instead of back when I was originally pitching them, is because Kjeld
was still in charge of the company back then and he was solidly against brick wars of any kind (except Star Wars, which was kind of a surprise to everyone). But, lucky for us, they saved all my concept pitches in Lego's big library of ideas in Denmark (this is an actual thing), so when Joergen
took over and switched company priorities to include "how about some net profits this year," they dusted off the old pitches and now we have all this warsy stuff that could never get approved while Kjeld was calling the shots.
