Of the video they write: "Coincidence? We think not. Let's give LEGO some props for listening!"
REALITY Check:Astrid has been working on this new Modular building way before you RadFems even became aware of the Friends theme. That she mentions people may be surprised she is the presenter is due to the fact that Jamie (who pioneered the Modular line) usually presents new buildings in the videos.
Did PBG even watch the video, did they even listen to the video, do they understand the video? Or, did they just see a still-image of the video on LEGO Club TV channel on YouTube and since there is a female in the picture, just assume that she in a response to their spamming, tweeting, posting, block & deleting all over the Internet? Seriously, this takes the cake.
There is a systemic failure in comprehension of timelines of LEGO product development and presentation by these groups. Astrid has worked for TLG for 3 years. She's an architect. Of course she likes LEGO Friends. She, like all other LEGO employees & fans, want more girls to build! That's the whole point.
Astrid spent time researching Town Hall designs all over the world. She spent time helping to design this new Modular building -- which takes more than a few weeks (as in, since Spark's ultimatum to TLG, pitching a hissy fit, sending more FedEx packages of silly 'skewed' petition print-outs, or else the RadFems will launch yet another 'blurred' letter-writing campaign) and certainly was well underway before the Friends launch this year!
More girls are building with LEGO bricks today than December 31st, 2011. Friends contributed to that change. Astrid obviously will continue to inspire builders of all types: girls, boys, men & women! Just don't try to attach your skewed agenda-promoting "no pink" campaign to her in any way!
The Town Hall is a Modular building, just like the 700 brick/piece flagship set of LEGO Friends Olivia's House!
