And also has the "buy Spore get pack free" promotion too.

Why should they get it free so soon when it hasn't even been released for like 4 months?

Has anyone noticed the way the parts are arranged? In the mouths section, it goes from realistic to cute in descending order. It's like there's a realistic, creepy mouth up top, a compromise, then a cute cartoony version. Pretty cool.
I say NO! to all limits.
Unfortunately, I don't think we're far enough into the Civ stage to have deveoped into the 'Infinite-ghz processing' research tree yet...

Funny, since the other screens seem to have the cute ones on top.

Not really, in the graspers/feet (which correspond to each other row by row, unlike the ones we have now) sections, only the first two of the middle row are immediately seen as cute. The third one in the middle row is kind of in the middle range while the last grasper in the middle row looks like a glove or something. The last foot on the middle row looks like it's modelled after a hooflike dinosaur foot (such as the Hadrosaurs or Ceratotopsians). The rest of them look like they are meant to look more non-terrestrial based and would be scary or cute depending on how you used them. I have no idea why they added another humanoid hand, although a bony looking one, on the bottom row.

The eyes kind of have the cute and scary ones mixed up in the rows. The middle one is mostly cute, but I find the last one to be a sort of seductive eye. I can easily see that one bieng used on a creature that is creepy, like a siren or something. I know I might be seen as wierd by seeing it like that, but remember how they subtly put in parts that are vaguely of a sexual nature? Look at the nurple part. There may be others, but that one was the most obvious to me. Anyways, moving on.....

The detail parts don't seem obviosuly cute or obviously creepy. Yea the top row looks like they are made out of foam, but we don't know how we are going to morph them. The middle row looks like mainly plant inspired, although the last one of that row looks like a fin. The last row there are definetly animal based.

It looks like they took inspiration from whales and dolphins for some of those heads.

I think that this parts pack won't be worth 20 dollars.  But it would be worth money, because it adds a lot of unique new parts.

Uh?



And, I saw the plants thing too. Well, more plant creature options is always cool.

He means it's not worth 20, but is worth some amount of money.

That's exactly what I meant.  I don't see how that's hard to understand...

Well I misunderstood at first. It seemed like you were saying it wasn't worth $20 then saying it was.
