Should TLG release smaller, connecting sets instead of so many larger, expensive playsets?
Lego seems to be coming out with bigger and bigger sets that cost more and more money. The Ewok Village costs $249.99. That's practically my paycheck for a week. (Yes I know I should have gone to college)
Why not make cheaper sets, maybe $30 or less, that all connect to make one bigger set? Besides Jabba's Palace, original retail $119.99, and the Rancor Pit, original retail $59.99, I can't think of any other Lego sets that actually connect to make a bigger playset. (The only classic toy I can remember at the moment to use as an example is micromachines.)
Isn't Lego hurting themselves buy releasing sets that are more and more expensive, or are they actually profiting more?
