K'nex: why have they got it so wrong?
Lego used to be great, but now all I see it "special bricks," you know, things like the plane sets! I mean, you may as well have one big brick in the shape of a plane. Anyway, I was on the K'nex site to buy some parts for the SRv2 after watching Lowney's video (was a bit sceptical of the 500ft claims at first but was sold after seeing the vid) and I wanted one of those big tubs. BUT SHOCK HORROR! These tubs no longer exsist: they are full of stupid "Knex Bricks" and "Knex People" and "Flexi rods" and "plates". Who needs them? All I need is a tub with basic bricks. And dont even get me started on the car sets.
So why did they go down that route? It sucks.
