Maybe we should make a poll for the amount of times we've done this poll before?

It's funny how all the hundreds of polls on this site are about Rock Raiders vs Power Miners, instead of Rock Raiders... actually, any other LEGO theme vs any other theme. Is there some label around here saying that there's a war here between Rock Raiders fans and Power Miners fans? I just don't get it.

Whenever there's two or more similar franchises/electronic devices/restaurants/bags of chips/video games/empty bottles of soy sauce out there that are aimed at the same target demographic, people are going to fight about it. Rock Raiders vs Power Miners is exactly the same as Ford vs Chevy, Firefox vs Chrome, PCs vs Macs, Lamborghini vs Ferrari (I side with Gumpert), MW3 vs Battlefield 2, Pokemon vs Yu-Gi-Oh, McDonalds vs Burger King, F-Zero vs Wipeout, Nintendo vs Sony vs Microsoft, and Traxxas vs hpi.

Just roll your eyes and ignore these things, they'll keep popping up and dying, like slime algae in an aquarium with no dissolved phosphate.

Very instresting that this topic comes up now. My brother and I are doing a LP of LEGO Indiana Jones 2 for PC, and this same subject somehow came up. I said that "Rock Raiders is probably better than Power Miners." After I said that, I corrected myself and said that I was going to get a lecture from some LEGO person on how RR is waaaay better than Power Miners. Good thing that video is not live yet (none of them are actually), so I can't get one yet.

Oh wait. I just quoted myself on a Rock Raiders forum. *faceslap* That means I'm going to get one now... :P

QUICK, I'M GONNA MAKE AN ADVENTURERS VS PHARAOH'S QUEST POLL!

Anyways, RR is COMPLETELY different from PM. Sure, they both have Energy Crystals and Rock Monster/Goblins and drills and crap, but what it's really all about is the creativity of the themes. RR had plenty of that, with a bunch of spin-offs, a video game, some other video game cameos, and this site.

Does Power Miners have that? No, all it has is some weak cameos in some weaker modern LEGO games and movies (I wince at the thought of Clutch Powers).

While Power Miners is made with more modern bricks, Rock Raiders has stood up to the test of time, and even has a somewhat followable story (a rarity in LEGO's terms.)

Allowing RRs to walk into the lava is also fun abuse, isnt it?

Anyways cant people just live with both of these series and whats so wrong with power miners? I mean they both have a good story and sets/parts. If you dont like eaither Pm or RR than dont buy them. Buy the one you like.

How about make a poll like Star Wars versus Rock raiders. That will be a better poll than PM v.s RR as it will be a new poll that wasnt made before.

I have sets from both of these series and am not disappointed in earthier of these 2 series sets(only disjointed at their expensive prices).

oops didnt notice the date.

GOOD STORY? ARE YOU s***ING ME?

LegoRR sets are hard to come by more than 10 years after it got canned...

Stop it with your stupid Star Wars lust. No-one cares. This is a site about LegoRR, not Star Wars.

oops didnt notice the date.

Oops indeed.

It's never been made before because they have nothing to do with each other

I like both of them, but the colors of PM are terrible.
In all RR sets are just 2 Monsters, there should have been more.

Yeah, fun times. We actually had a pretty good discussion of the good and bad differences between the two themes in that topic. Much different than the criticism in Fun's revival here.

Ok seriously I agree with Mcjobless here don't infect us with idiocy although it'll probably just speared faster now that I posted this but still this is the same as a brony anti-brony war only with less bloodshed and more plastic shed(s)...

This was over a year ago. Fun isn't active much anymore, and when he is he just posts maps or status updates. And it's not like that exactly, because previous topics have shown we can have a good discussion about this subject. The rage here is because we've already had that discussion, and because the topic is extremely poorly made.
