I was hooked by the concept, but the pictures leave me deflated and uninterested.

Hmm. I'm a big Mega Bloks

Hmm. I'm a big Mega Bloks fan, but the dragon line never appealed to me. I loves me some spaceships, but I agree that the designs aren't very interesting. The bird motif might be why. The large ship in the beginning looks intriguing. I'm curious to find out the price. Although the big appeal of MB--being much cheaper than LEGO--might be disappearing. $50 for that Condor set seems much higher than their current offerings. I hope I'm mistaken.

I have a Mega problem...

When I realized "Dragons" was being turned into a sci-fi / space theme, I was pretty disappointed. The Halo stuff has that sort of theme covered well enough for me right now. The dragons themselves in these sets look silly to me, and they bear a very similar resemblance to recent Lego dinosaurs and dragons. I don't expect I'll buying any of those.

However, I'm absolutely crazy for Mega's style of figures, so I plan to snatch up multiples of some of those smaller sets with figures. There's a lot to like about the ships, too. Even the ones I'm least excited for look like they offer tons of cool parts to build something I like better, and that's the whole point of building toys, really.
