My bets on the minifigs. Theres nothing I can associate with when it comes to the sets, but the main characters have been unchanged from what I remember as a kid (though no beebop and rocksteady). The importance of the weapons included are on par with the Jedis lightsabres in my opinion, and the unique shell/head pieces are just perfect.

  Be awesome if they EOL right as the movie comes out.   I need a Megan Fox minifigure though. For science.

You mean Baxter's Robot Rampage? Yeah the page is there still but it also displays the "Sold Out" tag without any change of status which could very well mean the set is down for the count. Like the re

Two years after this theme has come and gone a lot of you will be wishing you bought more of these sets. While I haven't gone completely crazy buying them, I do have a decent amount of the first wave

You said it. The characters make the sets, the builds are whatever. Good parts though.

This is a tough call. There isn't much to go by to compare these sets to when trying to gauge how they'll fair once EOL. I will point out one thing of note: during the buy one get one 50% off sale currently underway at Toys R Us Ninja Turtles are expressly excluded from the sale. Could just be due to the fact that they're new releases for 2013, but it may also reflect popularity of the sets. Galaxy Patrol is also brand new and no such restriction was placed on them. Food for thought. Tread carefully though. Even if you personally love this theme you don't want to sink serious capital into it only to find you have another Atlantis on your hands a year from now.

Original theme song all the way! Fun Trivia = The co-writer of the 1987 theme song was Chuck Lorre, creator of Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory! EDIT - The most recent theme pays homage to the original, so it gets points for that at least.

Really now....Didn't know that!

Yeeeaaah it starts out that way and makes you think "Oh cool", and then quickly goes to poop.

The minifigs are cool, one review that keeps jumping out at me is the poor construction of the shellraiser. Apparently it falls apart easy if its moved, yet alone played w/.

That one struck me as wierd too, specially considering that these are meant to be played with from the start by kids. That's pretty bad when a grownup like us has any build fall apart just from looking at it funny.

Megan Fox once said in an interview her grossest habit is that she sometimes forgets to flush after #2. Um.... that's disgusting. Get it together lady. My wife is easy on the eyes and I never walk into the bathroom and have to stare at a floater. Just saying....

Come on, everyone poops. As long as they didn't just eat corn....

Well yeah everybody poops but not everyone wants to see it!

Two things to remember.

One, always put down the lid.

And two, always flush. (And flush a second time for courtesy if it's 'that bad'.)
