I decided to do an article analyzing repetition within LEGO themes. It started out with a desire to do Adventurers while playing the crappy Dino game on LEGO.com.
First up, Adventurers, LEGO's classic exploration theme. Introduced in 1998, this theme had four incarnations: Egypt, Amazon, Dino Island, and Orient Expedition. The first two and the last one explored real settings but contained mystical beings and magic. The third was a Dino Hunter/Nature Protector-type theme, with the villains trying to capture dinosaurs and the Adventurers rescuing them. The theme also had cameos in LEGO Island 2, LEGO Racers, LEGO Racers 2, Soccer Mania, and the LEGO Island Interactive Comics. The theme was centered around three main heroes - Johnny Thunder, …

How to quit Brickipedia.

Step 4: You can leave a small note...but nothing big. Perhaps say that you'll be a bit inactive.
Step 5: Do a little the next day.
Step 6: You're gone.
Seriously...if you want to leave, don't make a blog about it. In fact, don't edit your userpage. I've tried both, especially the userpage one, quite a few times, and it has never worked. All it does is make it seem like you need attention, which may not b…Read more >
