Making this set in minifigs instead of minidolls just seems like such an unfortunate
missed opportunity.

I guess minidolls aren’t recognized as LEGO by everyone on first glance.

Plus it received 10000 votes as a minifigure based set, not a minidolls set.
There would have been outrage if they changed it.

Along with the Big Bang Theory set, this is tied for the most pointless LEGO
set ever.

agreed.


I quit following the ideas stuff because I found it pretty frustrating to watch.
I just check in once in a blue moon to roll my eyes. There is also a Seinfeld
set and a Queen set with a lot of support. Yeah, no thanks. At least the Disney
stuff makes sense because it is after all, a toy.

Big Bang Theory had a giant part out value, at least for a while.

It sure will create confusion in searches on this site, Lego site and elsewhere.

Half of Lego Ideas sets are pure nostalgia sets, so I am not surprised anymore.

LEGO Friends Friends?

Yet another licensed theme... does LEGO have no originality anymore?

No. Except Friends, Ninjago, Hidden Side, Lego Movie, CMF, and Creator. Oh
and City, Technic, Duplo, and Juniors.

Technic is disputeable. Like late releases like the Mack Anthem, Porsche 911RSR/GT3
RS, Bugatti Chiron, Liebherr Excavator...
the list goes on and on...
But it's not its main Focus and these models are pretty cool and fun to build
and Play with/improve.
