I really do love the new Space Police III theme, from the wonderful alien minifigs to the subtle in-jokes that the designers incorporated throughout their sets.
Nevertheless, a running joke among LEGO fans is that the line is xenophobic and defames sentient non-human life forms.
Seeing District 9 last night (based on Alive in Joberg from 2005), reminded me of this great webcomic from Shortpacked! Click the preview pic below to read the full comic.
Of course, LEGO designer Mark Stafford has explained that “Space Police are only responsible for interspecies crime… Non criminal aliens are of course welcome to live and work in terran space.”
Sounds like a challenge to all you LEGO fans out there to build a creation that shows the new SPIII aliens in a more positive light.
