LCB Gesha Space Freighter by Scharnvirk LCB Gesha Space Freighter by Scharnvirk
People often complain about LEGO making more and more sets with "juniorized" pieces, which are huge and they can be used only for what they have been designed for... right? :]

With this creation I tried to prove that it is not always the case. This thing is meant to be an interstellar freighter, built in microscale. One plate height represents roughly 2 meters of height of "real" thing.

finally a space freighter that looks like it can haul more than a cargo of protagonists to the next scene ;)

Stickers?

Generally yes, but in this model most of them come off the same set as truck beds. Not sure what was its number, though.

Just print them on sticker paper, with standard laser printer.

Good use of the pieces!

Yes, I remember that the juniorized sets began around 1997 with some awful City Sets. But since 2005 we have nice trucks, buildings and detailed sets in various lines.

This is great! What I hate about lego now-a-days is all their kits are 90% juniorized pieces.

I would agree if that was any true, and since at least 2005, it is not :)

(Bionicle, hero factory and such does not count. Its not lego ;d)

I exaggerate, but honestly, do you agree Lego has 'dumbed down' a lot more of their kits compared to the old days? Course I'm excluding teen kits from Model Team and their sculpture kits. Actually, I remember Town Legos having some really nicely detailed building kits these past years, but other than that, I've been disappointed.

I do not agree but I do understand why it is easy for people to think like that. Since about 1995 LEGO was in decline - sets were indeed getting dumber and dumber, to the culmination point in 2002 when average lego firetruck was built out of something like 20 pieces. Back in 1985 it was ~80. In 2005 the trend started to change... and now lego sets are in better shape than ever. That average lego firetruck now consists of about 200 pieces and is well detailed.

The true sign of returning to old glory - and now surpassing it - are buildings in system sets. You know, banks, fire stations, hospitals and such. For good 15 years or more they were merely a facades. There was front wall (consisting mostly of windows), few plates for roof and just supports instead of side walls. But now buildings have walls on all 3 sides (4th left open for playing).

Yes, as I acknowledged, the Town theme sets are definitely quality models, but what do you think of the Harry Potter sets for example, or the Ninja sets? What about those gangly space mech kits with the lego 'anime looking' mini figures? Those are some I remember that at least look more basic and uninventive. StarWars mini figure sets seem to hold some quality, but I noticed they even dumbed down over the years compared to the first generation StarWars kits.

Alright, I stand corrected with the StarWars sets. With the newer A wing you linked for instance, it has a curved long piece along the side instead of a series of smaller slanted bricks. Changes like that probably made me associate it with it being much simpler when it really wasn't. I looked through the 2012 StarWars kits and they seem more proportional and detailed, I'm glad to see it. As for the Ninja sets, this one comes to mind [link] for being boring and straightforward. Though I do like this newer set [link] . It has more personality and the roof is handled nicely.

Exo-Force.... Yea those things... : /

You must be joking - no offence :)

Old A-wing: [link] vs new A-wing: [link]

Old MTT: [link] vs new MTT: [link]

(it is like that for literally every single SW set which has been remade).

As for Harry Potter, for me it represents the 200x - era weak LEGO sets. Ninjago are quite nice:

I think you might refer to Exo-Force? (which is, like harry potter, an older series). Things like [link] ?
