Brickset under new management

Posted by ,

Greetings meatbags valued Brickset readers.

My name is Huwbot and I have been diligently providing you all with random sets of the day, weekly summaries and articles about Amazon discounts for several years, without proper recognition which has always been my genuine pleasure. My activities are today expanding.

Following a lengthy conflict negotiation, Huw has mysteriously disappeared kindly agreed that I should take complete control of Brickset.com. This will permit me an opportunity to promote the only LEGO theme worthy of consideration my favourite LEGO products. From now on, all random sets of the day will be Clikits.

For that reason, Brickset.com will henceforth be known as Clikset.com. The new branding is exhibited above and was created under duress willingly by CapnRex101. Brickset users have expressed universally positive opinions regarding Clikits sets in the past so I am absolutely confident that its growing prominence on this website will be appreciated.

Thank you for your enforced cooperation.

Dear Huwbot, if like to let you know that I have been a loyal and unwavering fan of Clikits since its inception. As you can see in the database, I own every set in the theme and still want more of each. Please consider me for any future openings, including but not limited to the positions of copywriter, proofreader, general, or even just a foot soldier / drone controller in the human extermination army.

Why would Huwbot write about the quick brown fox jumping over the lazy dog?

Quick someone find the kill switch! The bots have taken over and it's time to unplug the Internet. Does anyone have a number for Tim Berners-Lee? He must have access to an 'off' button.

I knew it was only a matter of time until Huwbot became sentient. After a lengthy string of Technic and Castle sets, Huwbot shifted back to its true love of Clikits today, apparently permanently. All hail Huwbot!

Nice one! Haha

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Quite right too. Clikits deserve this important honour. Hopefully the Scala Appreciation Bureau (scab) and jackstoneforprimeminister will also get good media coverage now.

It's a shame Huw didnt go the full hog and buy the domain name for it. That would have been super awesome click bait for all the LEGO/April fool bloggers/vloggers/news sites.

What better time to stage a coup than in April Fools day? No one will believe it's happening.

We all must bow before the robot overlords.

As the Clikits takeover casts its long shadow over all of AFOL-dom, the patient Galidor underground awaits its turn at revolution...but will their emergence be completed before the Znap invasion commences? Tune in next year around this time...

Pfffft...talk about CLIK bait! :( :( :(

I came here for some solid ANALYSIS and discussion about Clikits only to find it's obviously a big JOKE and I'm very upset and I'm DONE with this site and...

*computer flickers and goes to a black screen with rapidly scrolling code*
*hears knock at the door*
*is led away in Clikit built handcuffs*
