A Joke, or not?



I’m not a big fan in general of April Fool’s Jokes, especially ones that hurt someone’s feelings or are just plain mean, a harmless prank now and then is okay.

FBTB.net “formerly” known as From Bricks to Bothans, a website dedicated to all things LEGO Star Wars is reportedly changing tactics.

For Immediate Release: FBTB.net announces today that it will be refocusing its core theme away from LEGO Star Wars, to concentrate on the new Power Miners theme instead. After a decline in membership and losing popularity due to its controversial “Respect The Brick” policy, site founder and editor-in-chief, Ace Kim, has decided to shift the site’s team’s energies into covering all news relating to the heavily neon-green colored theme.

“Power Miners was just a natural fit. The price per part ratio was one of the main reasons for switching.” He also commented that with the Star Wars license expiring in 2011 and no chance of renewal, now was a good time to transition to a new theme to keep the site running.

Go to the website to read the entire release.

They’ve also added posts with titles like:Photo Contest: “Rock Monster Impersonation”, “Power MOCers: The Best Builders!”, “Which Rock Monster are You?”,and “Review: 8707 Boulder Blaster.”

More than likely it is a joke. But I’m not completely sure after reading some of the forum posts.

Whether it is or not, I think its totally brilliant! 😉
