LEGO Exo-Force theme to end in 2008 [LEGO]

The LEGO Exo-Force theme was received with mixed feelings back in 2005. Nevertheless, many fans have embraced the theme in the intervening years — if for no other reason than that it yielded a plethora of new minifigs and other new parts.

So, it is once again with mixed emotions that I share the news of the end of the LEGO Exo-Force theme at the end of this year. Personally, I think the 2008 Exo-Force sets were some of the best-designed sets of the theme, so it’s disappointing to say goodbye to the theme just as it seems to be coming into its own.

    I’m with you, Dunechaser.
    Although they were never on my “must but list,” I thought the theme got better with each new line-up.

    My first set was the stealth hunter, as well it was my first stickers. You will be missed exo-team and Keekin! Who knows, maybe the robots will be worth $ some day.

    Sets were flimsy and hod podge. parts/colors were wonderful.
    I also liked the artwork on the boxes -kept hoping they would have a fort built into a jungle mountain side.

    ah well

    Stupid LEGO. You make bad sets in a good line of course they won’t sell.

    The 2008 sets are great, and LEGO can’t see that? I think this could be a trick so everyone goes and buys Exo-force before it’s gone and then LEGO can go “Well sells were so great we are bringing them back”. Because this is very odd for LEGO to comment about a theme ending this early in a year.

    Exo-force was the only completely new and different theme Lego had going for it, and now it’s gone. You will be missed.

    I bought pretty much every Exo-force set in the $5-$25 range. In multiples. I even built most of the sets before I parted them out, and I can’t say that for too many lines. I would have picked up the larger sets if they didn’t suck so much. RIP Exo-Force.

    If there’s no possible way to petition to continue the exo-force, I really hope Lego has a new theme to top it.

    What if Lego bit on the current Post-Apoc and SteamPunk trends?

    Bionicle might be ending, it says “The final battle is now” on some ads. I doubt they will end it, just replace it with a new version. But it sells and Exo-force doesn’t.

    I just started getting into Legos because of this line! Lego better have something big planned, or it seems I may be refering to legos 5 years from now as, “they had a brief period of cool stuff”…
