    Hey guys,

    So great to hear another podcast so soon after the last one. Keep up the good work, guys!

    On the Atlantis line, as a castle guy I have to say I’m disappointed. When I heard the first rumors of an upcoming Atlantis series, I was hoping for something from ancient Greek myths, but instead we get something very sci-fi. I’m sure the spacers will make great use of the parts, and those figs will work well in a fantasy castle setting for us castle types, so all is not lost.

    One minor correction – Aaron said the monkey had only been in large sets previously. I got one in a little impulse set with one of the Jack Stone pirates, and it was on clearance for just a couple of dollars – I actually got several of those Jack Stone pirate impulse sets on clearance for the sake of the accessories. I did a quick check on peeron and the monkey has shown up in other cheap sets in the past (granted, nothing recent), such as:

    James mentioned a LEGO church. Sadly, I don’t think we’ll ever see such a thing again. It’s actually been 50 years since they had a church set:

    Even though it seems an obvious inclusion in town, castle, or wild west themes. I’m sure they’re too concerned about causing offense to someone and will steer far away from religion. About the only possibility IMO is if they were to do more architectural landmarks along the lines of the Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower and Taj Mahal sets – e.g. a Notre Dame set would be another cultural landmark that would be an awesome set.

    Anyway, great show. Are there links to the MOCs of the Week?

    Bruce
