well, people do like exo-force, but there's not alot of them on moc probably because most people dont own exo force joints. i,for instance, had one exo force set when i was 7 (although i lost half the pieces.) Permalink

I don't think it's 100% that way, it is also dependant on what kind of mecha you are building. Exo-force joints were kind of flimsy, so for bigger, heavier mechs like Dawn Forge style mechs, they are pretty much useless. Smaller, better balanced mecha can use them no problem. My personal opinion is that different joint techniques simply look better, and are often stronger, than exo-force or bionicle joints on mechs. They tend to need to be covered up by some plates or something to get a sleek look. Permalink

What do you think of the now defunct Exo Force theme and mecha that are derived from that theme?
I've tried to revamp and continue the Exo-Force series in a more developed way (see United Nations Armed Forces post for the storyline). I really didn't hate the Lego storyline, but I wish that the Devastators were a little more articulated. I thought that a lot of the parts and decals in the sets were great, and I still use a few of them today. Most mecha that are derived from the theme (such as the Dawn Forge) are amazing, and I take a lot of inspiration from the Dawn Forge theme. I really liked Exo-Force, and I think Lego should have continued the theme. Permalink
