I've been resisting the new Lego sets for a while now because of their futuristic depictions of supposedly historical eras. For example, the Knights' Kingdom II and Vikings series both have giant spring-loaded projectile weapons. Well today I broke down and bought a vikings set. I'm still uncertain about the ridiculous giant catapult powered by a lone viking. Launching boulders at least three times as big as himself doesn't seem within the realm of possibility for an 8th-11th century warrior, even if he is a badass. On the other hand, the armor, weapons, and non-specialty bricks are awesome.
On a completely unrelated note, Willyk set me up with a new gallery account today. Check it out if you're interested.
Update 2006-11-05: the gallery url has changed and now works. =)
