I remember back when Bionicle came out, and AFOLs were griping about it, saying how stupid it was (myself included). However, it went on to become one of their most successful lines.

With Friends, the tides have turned. It seems as though the AFOL community is actively embracing it, while the criticism is coming from more public forums. Yet, from what I've heard, Friends sets have been selling really well.

Yeah, like a lot of things people complain about, a legitimate issue has been blown hugely out of proportion by a vocal few, and combined with a bunch of misinformation.

I had a fun Friends experience the other day at the Lego store. I was stocking up on some more sets and there was a mother with her ~6 year old son buying a bunch of stuff, including some Friends sets. Those, the little boy maintained when the clerk asked, weren't for him, but for his cousin. He wasn't interested in girl Legos. His mother told him they don't have to be for girls, and it just happened that I got up to the counter to pay right then. The mother said "See, he's buying them!" So there are people fighting on both sides of this front.
