Heh! Exactly why I included HuffPo UK in my list of links. OTOH, there’s the absurdity of CBS and NBC being labelled, “Right wing media”. I only included them because they’re mainstream “real” journalists, not as a snare for a resident liberal to step in.
Thing is, both stories could be true. Lego may have been planning to stop production of the set by the end of 2013, but ended production under pressure from Muslim groups who weren’t mollified by Lego’s January announcement that the set in question would be going away at the end of this year (and hyper-vehiculating George Lucas).
[/quote] According to my co-worker who collects lego’s with an obsession and Lego themselves, this set is still in production and will continue to be until the scheduled pull date. I do think it’s BS that Lego acknowledged this either way. The Turks whining about this have never even seen Star Wars. Jabba the Hut is a “bad man” and makes them look bad? WTF.
