Spacey-Castle, wave of the future

Postby Bruce N H » Sat Apr 01, 2017 4:59 am

It's time to stop living in the past. Nexo Knights, Ninjago, the writing is on the wall. Let's face the futue and change up this site to focus on Spastle - Space/Castle mashups. For examples look tothis spastle MOC thread, various Nexo MOCs, this seed part challenge or our Castle Goes to Space contest from a few years ago. Please bear with us as it will take a few weeks to change over the look of the site and replace all of the Classic-Castle content with Spacey equivalent material.

I think it all started with this set:

I mean, those mechanical horses were way ahead of it's time!

Hey all,

Back to normal (you're still welcome to make your castles swooshy, though). By the way, here are some other times our front page has gotten away from us in the past:

April Fools 2007 - everyone's favorite jewelry line
April Fools 2009 - when someone didn't read the tag with the washing directions
April Fools 2010 - moo
April Fools 2012 - through the looking glass
April Fools 2017 - two time Oscar winner for the Usual Suspects and American Beauty

It will be interesting to see how everyone handles this transition/mashup. I think it is something you have to be careful with to pull off well, but like anything, it depends on your preference. I do hope we see more alien/fantacy race figures. Some space :orc: sets would be totally rad!
