Not entirely accurate, opinion, incomplete assessment.
In comparison to Lego, customization is lacking. Which isn't the same thing as a complete lack. Especially among the newer toys, MB is trying for enhanced customizability.
Halo and WoW figs look bitchin to a lot of people, including this guy. And I hate WoW with an intense passion. Besides, new MB figures are of a completely different design (action figure oriented) which is preferable to some (I could go either way on this one).
Quality of molds in MB products has advanced significantly in recent years...nothing beginning to approach lego's impeccable quality...but they stay together now.
Let's call a thing what it is.
Why are we still on this anyway? OP wasn't prompting a debate about which is superior, despite post title. We know that Lego is superior, its obvious. Question was, how to handle them rules wise.
