When Legos Attack!

I’m torn on this one. The CGI is done with care, but… it’s Legos. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that Legos are cool, because they’re just… incredibly overpriced plastic bricks. They’re like the Apple of construction toys.

Anyway, Lego fans, go ahead & set me straight.

    When did Legos become Playmobil figurines? (I’m not being facetious. I thought Legos were bricks, with sometimes accessories.)

    Anyway, I wouldn’t know… I only got sticky Kaboom cereal. You can only build so much with that.

    I remember spending many happy hours playing with Legos and green plastic army men as a yoot.
    No batteries required, no rules, and the only graphic effects were those my imagination provided.
    Dang, now I want to go out and buy some Legos!

    I can’t say I’m really a fan of legos now being complicated uniform building projects. When I was a kid, it was just a pile of bricks – and I had to use my imagination to make something.

    That said, I’m totally addicted to my 6yr olds Wii copy of Lego Batman 2.

    More Like the commodore 64 of Building toys… Tinker toys were the Apple…

    I like lego. I pay the $$$ for them because they’re the BEST plastic bricks. I’ve tried other versions. They’re not as awesome.

    Legos are still awesome. Even if the newer sets come with instructions, all pieces are still 100% compatible with the Legos I had as a kid in the 1970′s and 1980′s…you can still build whatever you want out of them.

    @1 – 1978.

    @3 – The upcoming The LEGO Movie is all about NOT following the instructions.

    @5 – Amen, sister. (And this is not for cookies).

    LEGOs are high quality building elements, of which 90+ % are plastic bricks (there are wheels, strings, mini-figures, capes, et cetera). They can be used to express whatever you want, such as illustrations for a sermon series based upon the Avenger movie. Or a Christmas tree for an open house. And if you make a mistake, you can change it.

    To be fair, I thoroughly enjoyed the Lego Batman movie:

    Although – confession time – it was mostly because Batman treated Superman with the derision the big blue lapdog deserves from a mortal superhero who actually risks something while fighting crime.

  9. AT says:

    He does that in the game too, Harv. Robin is all doe-eyed anytime the flying boy scout shows up, and Batman is all, “Yea great whatever Superman – get in the car Robin.”
