Its a shame as I think every child should grow up with lego. You should get it given to you from school, not as a gift.

It's no more expensive now than it's ever been; precision manufacturing doesn't come cheap.

... this is my signature!

RE: Lego
So I'm stocking the Lego yesterday, specifically the Lego City series, and I come across a truck with some dudes and a crane on the back of the truck. The crane is than holding a port-a-potty with a dude sitting in it holding a roll of toilet paper. I lol'd, there is literally a toilet paper lego piece.

Ah, good ol' trusty Google Images.

With 3d printing, soon I'll just be able to download an illegal copy of a Lego file.

Ahh Service Truck, set 60073 with 233 pieces. I don't have it but have seen it advertised and can't fault a little toilet humour for extra play value.




This is the set I talked my son into choosing as a present for his friend's birthday today:



Not bad for $15. And to think he wanted to get this lego batman set instead:




My son wants this set for his birthday, and here I'm with you all on "overpriced":



Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: Lego
Ahh Lego... Oh the nostalgia!

I remember one time I got a Tie Fighter build for Giftmas, it was damn fun to put together, damn big too. Alas, it did not survive my childhood and many parts have gone missing, other parts were cannibalised into my own works after it's slow disintegration.

I still have a big tub full of pieces in my closet...

RE: Lego
The sets I had as a kid did not have themes to it...

It was just blocks, some gears and a couple different types of axles for gears and wheels.

Anything you came up with - was up to you.

I liked that.....

Sort of the atheist version - instead of the dogmatic type.....

Yeah, but without the direction, all you did was build perfectly symmetrical towers and cubes... Or was that not a thing you people did?

I don't recall.... I suppose I could go drag it out and see what I come up with.....

Yep -- still have it.... Got several sets - in a 100lbs wooden nail barrel - that's half full... Stashed in my dad's house........

It's good to see somebody appreciates quality......

Precision mass manufacturing is WHY Lego is the industry leader ---

There's cheaper building blocks out there - but they just don't stack up....
