i like that theyve gotten more specific (star wars sets, etc) but then i kinda feel bad, cause theyre somewhat limiting. i mean, sure, the medieval castle ones and pirate island ones didnt leave me a ton of room to make variations as a kid, but i found i had options, such as uh, castle-pirates. star wars sets, i think youre stuck building jedi stuff.








more game ones

How did we not have this thread here already!?!?! I only found one in Culture & Sociology, which Nizzlers should combine w/ this thread and keep in the MoAF forum.


LEGO has their own youtube channel and it is awesome.


First up, meet Astrid. Astrid gave up a job in architecture to design LEGOs. She's also a taller, hotter, less annoying version of Bjork. This basically makes Astrid one of the most desirable women in the history of all things ever.

Yeah, I know that thread and it is what it is. But we needed a general LEGO thread and it definitely belongs in here. Or we can just make this thread a shrine to Astrid.


And now for something you will buy when you win the lottery: LEGO Super Star Destroyer.




And this guy is a douche. Not b/c of his terrible haircut or his even worse acting, but b/c he tells you this is about $1k worth of LEGO before he, well just watch...

So, if you're ever bored or can't sleep here's a fun fact: apparently on the LEGO minifigures bios section of the website the logo is animated differently for each individual character for Series 1-5* of the LEGO Minifugures.




According to LEGO, when the zombie apocalypse does come, it will apparently mutate all chickens to an enormous size as well. So, rest easy MIA...for now.




Except for the guy in the hazmat suit. Apparently biological disasters aren't animation worthy. It's nice to know the zombie apocalypse is a laughing matter, but the cause of the zombie apocalypse ain't no joke.

Yeah, I guess the front end is what really bothers me aesthetically more so than the size. They really nailed it w/ the first set. Also, in 2006 a larger set w/ more mini-figs and also included the desert skiff and sarlac went for $75. Now the desert skiff is a separate set for $20-25 and the barge is another $45. So LEGO basically is giving fans less for nearly double the price. That's a big disappointment from a company that usually improves on quality of product over time. :???:


In more uplifting LEGO news, the upcoming Lone Ranger movie has finally given LEGO a reason to make sets featuring cowboys & Indians.
