What do you think?

Has LEGO sold out?

Personally, I tend to agree. While the custom kits are undeniably damn cool, the creativity of that big box of bricks with no predefined shapes or goals in it is lost.

Yes and no,

I had some kits that were designs, and others that were more generic, I found that after I'd build something it eventually ended up in my 20 gallon rubbermaid bins of blocks and then I took it from there

I can't wait till my daughter is old enough to play lego's, currently i'm pretty sure she'll be pooping them 2 days after we play

Sweet! Looks like it will be bigger than the previous X-Wing (which wasn't super small) - should be very cool.
