Lego Crack.

November 27, 2010

So today I discovered Lego Crack…
Lego Mini Figs.

Casually shopping for Lego this morning like every 30 year old does I found that Lego Mini Figs were available in Aus which had me suddenly in line buying four and ripping them open in search of a Spartan.
Ripping them open at a table, i discovered No Spartan but got the Mexican so it was cool, until i googled.
Suddenly I had the barcode system, a way of identifying the minifigs I needed; this lead to me standing at the counter another 2 times feeling up sealed packets of Lego figures checking barcodes.

So 11 mini figs later I still don’t have a Spartan but do have 2 Ring masters, 2 Mexicans and 2 Weight Lifters.

I found this video discussing the disease that is Lego Mini Figs from this year’s brick con…

So if you have any spare minifigs let me know 😀

Lock and load Lego

June 11, 2010

Back when i was a kid (no not last week) I was heavily into lego and won a few building contests at the Lego Store in Birkenhead Point, i do recall hearing a speech from a Lego guy where he basically said Lego would not make guns, it wasn’t what they did. The next thing you know the Pirates series came out with rifles and hand guns; I mean they used to make things that looks like guns and lasers but weren’t actually guns; now some one has built a functional bolt action sniper rifle built out of Lego Blocks. I wonder what the people at Lego think of that!
