Last general is on autosage
There will be another production run, r-r-right? ;_;
They said it would ship August 15th, but then they changed it to 30 days when I refreshed. If I order it now will they actually send me one? This is madness. Scalpers are shit.
Copypaste because OP is a faggot.

Here's the initial rough draft of something that's going to go through a ton of iterations before I'm remotely satisfied. Small display above and between muh drawers. I went a little overboard with all the details, considering I'll be scrapping everything between each rework, but it was a ton'o'fun.
mfw I ordered my exosuit from a local store today and it will likely arrive by Monday
>Was up until 4 last night
>Figure I'll get Exosuit in the morning
>Forget about it since I needed to head to a train station that morning
>Exosuit is sold out now
Fuck, do you think Lego Stores would have them in stock? Tempted to go down tomorrow and check
I suppose this is more a question for /ic/ or /gd/ or other places drawfags hang out, but would there be any interest in creating a one-off art-zine that focuses on the characters and themes within the LEGO Universes, and not on the LEGO 'brick'?, ala surmalegobros.
I think it would be awesome to create an zine about LEGO, but not featuring one LEGO brick or minifig. I find the character design and world-building of LEGO just as engrossing as the construction side of it.
If I had anything resembling drawing talent, I'd be drawing all kinds of Space fan art. All the factions have tons of personality.
>I heard it's only good for display, but not actual play.
The model the set was based on maybe. Only wonky parts are some of the detail on the shoulders seems to break apart constantly and is generally in a shit place.
I wait until 2015 or 2016 to get mine so I can get it with a good promo. Isn´t worth buying it now except you really want it or you want to scalp it immediately to retards that think it won´t get enough production runs to last for years.
>also up to 4 in the morning
>at 3am actually remembered to go to lego.com
>purchase exo suit
>tell friend today because he also wanted it
>friend tells me shit is sold out on website
>go to check my order status just because
I'll just wait it out. It just sucks getting denied like that.
This'll probably send everyone into a rage, but has anyone bought the Research Institute? Looks a little measly for 20 bones, but dat skeleton and chalkboard. Plus, I actually DO need some female minifigures...
I just finished building mine. It's actually REALLY nice. The girl's lab coat is a new print, and all three builds were pretty satisfying, especially the dinosaur.
The bags are numbered, one for each scene. The way it's laid out, it sort of acts like first build (the lab room with beakers) is the warm-up, then you do the dinosaur skeleton, and then you cool down with the telescope.
The instruction book also starts off with descriptions of the different fields of science represented in the set. It's a nice touch.
It's pretty excellent. Lots of large-ish things that I haven't seen before, although I took a couple years off. The GBC, Military, and Sci Fi displays keep getting better and better.
I spend like 90% of the time I'm there doing maintenance and setup, though, so I don't get to see everything I'd like to.
Are these on sale at the physical lego stores or just online?
I went over to my local store and they were selling super fast. I picked up two, because that was the limit, and I have to admit, its a pretty interesting build. It was a bitch to pose, but it looks great.
Having seen the movie, I'm now tempted to buy more Milanos and do some palette swaps.
Its actually more stable than I would have expected. However, these small sections that I have circled are a little annoying, because you should fold them out of the way, if you want to move the arms (and as you can see in my pic, i forgot to fold one back). But other than that, its really well done. It isn't the easiest BUILD, but it should stay together fine.
took me 2.5 hours to build the exo suit. I think this is one of the few instance numbered bags would. Going through those tiny bits and bobs was annoying especially since everything is mostly gray.
>mom bought little sister a Friends polybag, pretty damn kawaii
>she's now getting into Lego with me, too
I don't understand the excitement over the exo-suit...
It's quite well done, yes, but these type of mechs have been done for a long time. The original design has been pretty much ruined with barrels and greeble. As for the so-called "classic" space figures, the body are, but the helmets are not. For me, classic space was when figs had the same helmet as benny in TLM (without it being broken, of course).
And I don't understand either all the hate with the research institute. A lot of women wanted to vote for a lego set representing women, so what? My lil' sis loved playing lego with me, but you know what, she was pissed because when somebody bought her a set, it was always a paradisa or some shitty pink-themed-poney stuff, never a spaceship or other...
Glad girls can be represented some other way in lego.
Of course it's very well done, but mechs have been done for a long time by FOL. I'm not gonna buy a set of a mech with a lot of flaws that I'm gonna have to mod afterwards, I can do that already and I don't need to spend 35€ just because TLG thought "eh, why not cash in on what fans everywhere do already?"
Building a instruction set with the pieces in the bag is fucking frustrating.
I almost went insane when building my ice cream van, since i had to open like four of the bags just to assemble the minifigs.
Just lay down the pieces on a flat surface and do eet.
I think a lot of the excitement over the Exo-Suit is largely excitement at the prospect of an Ideas/Cuusoo set that ISN'T licensed getting made. As for the butthurt over the research institute, it's just kneejerk MRA reactions from all the /v/ and /pol/ fuckwads that have seeped into other boards. The set itself is just a science-themed set with female minifigs that isn't doing the "LOOK HOW PROGRESSIVE WE ARE" bullshit, so there's no reason for anyone to be mad at it.
>I'm hoping to somehow MOC a tiny Groot so he'll fit!
Don't look at the image, just stop reading right now, cause I hate to be THAT guy.
[spoiler]It shouldn't be too hard.[/spoiler]
>A lot of women wanted to vote for a lego set representing women, so what?
People are upset because those womens' votes "shouldn't have counted" because they're "not real LEGO fans".
>I think a lot of the excitement over the Exo-Suit is largely excitement at the prospect of an Ideas/Cuusoo set that ISN'T licensed getting made.
That is actually a very good point, even though it doesn't change my opinion about the design itself.
But the whole point is that it ISN'T bringing gender politics into children's toys. Go look at the Lego shop description and the packaging for the set - there isn't a single mention of female representation or equality or anything. It's literally just a set of scientists doing scientist shit. They don't even point out that the minifigs are female.
Yeah, the original Cuusoo page that spawned it was pretty heavy with the gender politics and Tumblr bullshit, as were all the shitty articles on sites like Buzzfeed and Kotaku and whatnot. But in adapting it to an actual set, Lego has changed it from "PROGRESSIVE FEMALE REPRESENTATION SET FOR PROUD WOMYN" to "Lego scientists." Sure, said Lego scientists are female, but if the issue is with that rather than potential obnoxious LOLSOPROGRESSIVE marketing (which hasn't happened), then is it really about gender politics?
I think the reason why so many people are excited about the Exo Suit is because it's the first Lego Cusoo idea that actually feels like a fan project. We had a guy who made his own mocs, and then ended up talking to the original creator of Lego Space, added to teh whole mythology of classic Lego. There's obviously a big nostalgia factor, but you can tell it's because he has a lot of love for Lego. Lego Ideas has been filled to the brim with copyrighted materials for so long. Those feel relatively cheap on the sentimental scale. This is the first project that was accepted feels like there was a creative drive behind it, and fans can tell. It's one of the reasons why people like the Lego Movie. All the MOCs and theme gave it a creative drive.
The Labratory set is very obviously created with gender politics in mind. It rubs a lot of people the wrong way. Anyone who criticizes it on 4chan seems to be called out as a MRA, including myself, when really I just don't like seeing gender politics in toys. I'm gay so I don't exactly hate women, and my minority experiences more legitimate oppression than they do by default. So I can understand where they come from, but it just rubs me the wrong way. That's and I think the entire concept and execution is boring. I think the Exo Suit, along with being a creative nostalgic well executed idea with a lot of love put into it by a fan and support and love from fans, does the gender issue a lot better and it's not even trying to make a point about gender politics. There's just a guy and girl and they're partners. Blam. Equal. Awesome. They don't just exist to make a gender politic statements.
Isn't that the whole point? To represent female scientist as something normal?
Until now, minifigs that were visibly female were in pink sets with poneys and all, like paradisa or friends. Now there are girls in normal legos too.
The goal is that girls can play Legos without having to buy pink sets with girls riding poneys.
The inception of the laboratory is derived from the gender politics regardless if the LEGO Company markets it as such or not. It actually gives the impression that the LEGO Company are trying to avoid controversy. It's just marketing. The reason why it exists was because a fan was interested in gender politics.
Is that a bad thing? No. But I still don't like it. That doesn't make me a Men's Right Advocate. I just don't like it.
tl;dr YES is about gender politics.
>cashier in lego shop told me I had enough VIP points for £5 off the Exo suit
£24.99 fuck yeah. So worth it, the suit is bad ass, might have to splash out on bricklink for some coloured pieces to spruce the grey guy up a little.
so this looks scale but I'm going to ask anyways, it is minifig scale yes?
Don't look like it. You'd have to pull the seats out.
I like the robot turtle more than the exosuit.
Feminism has taught me that women are so weak that the lack of a miniature lego head with lipstick will cause them to suffer low self esteem, and choose their career. They have weak malleable minds that are affected by things as awful as children's toys that will traumatize them and oppress them.
Am I being sarcastic? I really don't know anymore. Just like I never know if feminism is just trolling me or not.
We're being baited!
Let's not reply to poop posters anymore anonymous sama.
So, lemme get this straight, because girls are getting ONE SET, with the aim to increase the representation of females in Lego, and because they succesfully mobilized their community to do so, that's undesserved, and this set is shit?
How butthurt are you?
>Am I being sarcastic? I really don't know anymore. Just like I never know if feminism is just trolling me or not.
Same feeling here. There is no shortage in female figures in City sets if that´s what these people are on about. Yes, there are no sets only with females and even a set with 8 figs still only has 2 women but I am more concerned with how there are only like 5 torsos and 2 heads. And what does the research set do? Yet again release fig parts from the same shitty range of 5 torsos and 2 heads, aside from that one professor who still isn´t really unique because there already were 2 female heads with glasses in the CMFs and the torso looks like they stole it from Arctic.
Really guys. There are always only 2 female heads in City sets and they don´t even look that much different, they could use some distinction apart from a different lip color.
I grew up with the neutral genderless :) face too.
If you make a distinction then it would be sexist. Look at friends. They made a whole toyline for girls but it's got pastel colours which is sexist. Purple tools are sexist somehow, according to Anita Sarkesian.
This offends me as an homosexual. I want to dress as a giant penis on gay pride parade and I want it to be the most pastel shade of purple, because that's the sexiest penis colour in the world and I have a right to chose it. But now I can't because it makes me a sexist to use pastel coloured tools.
Wearing lipstick and make up is degrading towards women, it objectifies them as sex objects.
You're right. Gender Signifiers are wrong. That's why feminist idols wear giant hoop earrings, make up and ponytails. Calling that girl plain jane is ableist because it makes girls believe that being ordinary and non sexually objectified and fetishized by men is a negative trait. Long hair is another harmful gender signifier. She needs to be shaved for total superior gender neutrality.
No she has pink in her hair which is sexist because it promotes harmful stereotypes about women. Most of her plot from the Lego Movie involves being submissive towards Batman, one of the most iconic examples of the male power fantasy.
>This offends me as an homosexual.

But now I can't because it makes me a sexist to use pastel coloured tools.
This post would have made more sense if I didn't forget the image.
Everything is NOT awesome. Did you know about the harmful oil that is spilled into our oceans EVERY DAY!! Lego is the best and most appropriate medium for us to further our anti oil agenda!
I got an extra of this set for $3, what could I make with it?
That's the point. Anita Sarkesian said Friends was sexist because they had no non typical jobs. Then the girl who builds robots doesn't count because her tools are purple.
There are shittons of women in Lego but being girly is a crime for some reason. And I hate it because I'm a homo and I already have to deal with this bullshit becuase I'm with a man and dating another man is girly becuase fuck you purple tools.
>Greenpeace dropped a big yellow container with studs on top in front of our corporate HQ today. Then they climbed all our flag poles (I don't know why there's no need to climb a flag pole to operate it) - took down the LEGO flags and national flags and raised their own flags which said 'Shell' in the LEGO logo typeface. It was like a massive advert for the Shell poly bag sets.
>Then they stood around waiting for something to be done. Local police came down, had a word, then left. No one from LEGO said anything to them - because it's the middle of the school holidays here and there's less then 20% of the staff in work - and absolutely no one of the leadership team was in. The receptionist seemed a bit confused as to what to do. We all kind of ignored them, they kind of ignored us, no press or any one else turned up. It was a bit awkward really. Apparently they did the same thing in Czech Republic at our factory yesterday.
>They did not picket the Shell petrol station down the road, nor did they reveal where the fuel for the big truck (and presumably forklift) to move the container was bought from.
>It's windy in Billund (in Denmark generally) and one of their banners broke) again they felt this required climbing the flag pole to fiddle with it. My main take away from the day is Greenpeace may need to be taught how flagpoles are supposed to work.
>The flag pole climbers were all decked out in climbing gear and stuff, they looked ready to scale a mountain. I don't know what they were expecting the LEGO HQ to be but the one floor, flat roofed, structure must have been a crushing disappointment to them. So up the flagpoles they went!
I work in retail and I honestly don't care if customers do shit like that, as long as they don't give me trouble. Not that we sell the blind bags but that wouldn't make a difference.
I know some people I work with would probably get annoyed if we did but thats because their old and bitter and don't get it. It's not like they would say anything to the customer anyway.
Honestly I'd probably help out customers look for certain minifigs in the blindbags. Atleast my boss would like me going the extra mile to make the customer happy.
>>It's windy in Billund (in Denmark generally) and one of their banners broke) again they felt this required climbing the flag pole to fiddle with it. My main take away from the day is Greenpeace may need to be taught how flagpoles are supposed to work.

Oh my god. please be real.
Hey guys, can we talk about Lego stuff for a minute?
I found a BL store that had all four of the TMNT minifigs I wanted to get for my friend's kids. I found a store before that, but I took too long meandering around their store picking out stuff for myself, and one of the turtles got ganked out of my cart.
Anyway, my turtles came in, so my friend's kids will be happy to get them out of the blue.
How do I become good at building without instructions and mocing? The only good looking "mocs" I've made were some hero factory things.
>that perfect nose solution
Beautiful, is it posable at all though?
is that a bioindustry moc on the left, or lab mouses? It's a little too dark to make out.
yeah it'd be fun
i fucking hate the frenchness of surmleredditXDbros though.
If i start drawing again i'd love to draw my mocced minifigs as well as original Lego characters. I did some, but i unlearned a lot of my technical skill apparently. One day i will make the echi art of Marsha the Mermaid that she deserves.
but masturbating is what keeps my on edge (lol) about wanting to draw anon. My reference/inspiration folder is merging more and more with my porn folder.
It looks pretty ok for some interior pieces and whatnot. What's the price though? I can't find it online for some reason. I'm more then covered on the female minifigs front though, pretty much 50/50 for the actually assembled ones i have lying around.
[spoiler]poorly disguised "post your brickwaifus thread"[/stillnospoiler]
i'd love some black ones to connect to the blacktron and spyrius baseplates. What i'd really really want is old dark grey, but that is never gonna happen isn't it.
I'm totally ok with the more family friendly easy going atmosphere of /toy/ and LG. But let's not get things to the point where we can't even call eachother homosexuals anymore.
would've loved an aquasharks girl with a haircut just as cool as the leon kennedy style one. What a handsome motherfucker that was.
TLDR ACCIDENTLY 5 SUITS :|
So after staying up till 4 am I woke up and I tried to order 3 exo suits this morning, One to put with the other ideas sets boxed,One for my dad and one for me. The order apparently went through but on checking order details it didn't exist, Bank didn't have any money taken and no confirmation email so i was like fuck.
Went to Manchester Lego store and they had 2 exo suits left. Checked my online stuff with them at the store and my order from the morning didn't exist so I bought the two there.
cue after 10 hour shift at work I get the confirmation that 3 suits have been shipped :|
What do ?!?! I feel shitty as I have 2 more sets than I needed :(
>All of the toy stores here feel the bags themselves so that customers get what they want right away.
>TFW this probably means some mouth-breather shrieked several times they didn't get what they wanted
They mark the pricetags with the corresponding number from the checklist.
It's really cool, and I've helped out my local store when the last two series arrived. They've gotten the bag-feeling down as a skill.
Heh, I hope not. I don't think I've seen that kind of behavior in this country when it comes to our hobby.
Yeah im sure you guys know I love my turtles but it felt too obvious :P
>Heh, I hope not. I don't think I've seen that kind of behavior in this country when it comes to our hobby.
I've learned something in my short 27 years of life. Never under-estimate the power of idiots.
Just look at my country, the US, right now. Stupidity is why we are where we are right now.
Projects only really pass if there's something of a buildable quality to them. Ghostbusters and BttF had their cars. The Exo-Suit. The modular science lab pieces. Minecraft.
The Big Bang Theory won't pass through because even though there are plenty of people who want minifigures of the major characters, there's really nothing to build from the series. No iconic place, object, scene, nothing in particular.
Maybe, or maybe not.
The other anon is right; all of the accepted and released Ideas sets have been about the build, rather than the figures. Satellite? Submarine? Sci-fi car? CGI environment? Exo-suit? All about the build. The research set was also about the build, at least the way it was released. Even though the female minifigs drove its run to 10,000, and the agenda the reason for its eventual production, the relevance of the minifigs in it was barely mentioned.
Although a Dr. Who set or a Big Bang Theory set is gonna thrill the fans, unless the set is about what you build rather than who you get with it, it won't pass.
I have my army of blacktron and currently my blacktron exosuit is in V2 (ill take pics of it in a few mins im building a set so to speak)
Doctor Who did actually have a fairly successful brick toy series in the UK. Lego initially rejected every Doctor Who submission because of that, but the contract expired and the line was discontinued, so only NOW is Lego accepting Doctor Who submissions.
And if a Doctor Who set does pass through, it's probably just going to be the TARDIS and some landscape.
V2 Is built, V3 is in the post :P
BLACK IS SO unphotogenic
My Blacktron EXO isn't finished V2 basically has the shape, V3 should have all limbs and decals attached :D I love the cockpit !
Made something, highly based off Knightmare Frames from Code Geass. What do you think? Gonna cannibalize the exo suit to add more to this most likely
Those are supposed to be spare rockets for the launcher, the ropes are meant to be attached to a VTOL I made, gotta have that air mobility. Opposite arm has a machine gun in it
Chest/cockpit ejects. A minifig fits in the back sine minifig scale is best. Pilot compartment is roughly the same design as the larger stuff I've built
Took a few shots just incase people wanted to see, The legs and cage are pretty much set in stone,also I love the shoulders, I got loads of cracklink parts to experiment with on arms for v3 so hopefully its awesome.
I love the talons along with the pads on the ankles so chicken walking is the only way it can work with them parts, Also it lets it stand up tall or hunch like the normal Exo.
Maybe it's just me, since those Piraka feet have been used so much in official sets.
If you're keeping the legs, though, I think you should shorten the arms to visually fit together better.
Proportion wise the legs and arms the same as the exo suit,the elbows just make it look bigger :P
I love the legs and might change the feet as the ankles don't allow them to move.
The arms are my last big design change along with the hips/crotch, Ive ordered loads of parts to experiment with, Just need to wait for them.
Reposting my bukow.
Now with better lighting and set.
>What noise does he make?
A sort of coughing, honking "guh" noise. The calves make a high-pitched nasally "heh" sound.
This spaceship is mostly an Enlighten copy of the Lego Paradisa Country Club set. Although I did add some details using a small space set and police car.
This just came in [nospoilersontoy]for free[/gibspoilerspls] and I'm about to get some wingstop. Can things get any better?
I want one mostly to MOC with (and delicious green space waifu of course). Yeah, I'll build the set once, but I plan on seeing what little mechs and stuff I can make with the parts. Assuming I can get my hands on one, that is.
These guys need a proper set sometime.
The dual-rotor chopper would be awesome on it's own, and a wind-up bike that could set off once it hit the ground, would be perfect, but I'm too much of a dunsky to build it without instruction.
Synchropters are fucking great. Lego's actually done them at least twice, one very old Technic set and an altmodel for a recent one.
Technically-speaking, a ratchet wouldn't be too hard to hook into a windup motor, the synchropter gearbox is the tricky part.
Made a (terrible) brickbuilt replacement torso for Chi Laval. The colors are ridiculously temporary (provided I don't scrap the entire project), and make little to no sense, so try not to think about them too hard.
Looks like that set has enough hinges and 'fingers' to either make a small mech for Razcal, or an insane jetpack-with-wings thing.
In my experience:
Doesn't care, but there was a steady stream of employees walking down the aisle. I wasn't sure if this was just my paranoia, or if they were directed to keep me nervous.
Actively encourages it and the clerk will often ask if you've felt them on checkout and double check if buying just one or two.
I'd be pretty surprised if Copper Chopper Showdown wasn't a set in the new wave.
On the plus side, I'm pretty satisfied with what posability I managed to include (despite neglecting to work in an ab-crunch/waist-swivel).
He can actually reach for his weapon storage,...
...pray for more Chi,...
...or just take a shit on my desk.
I bought eight, 2 going to my house, 2 to my sisters, 2 to my work and I picked up 2 from my local LEGO Store, only 2 of the online orders say shipped though, my 3rd is stuck on processing.
I put them on eBay at £40 starting and nearly sold them
To be fair, even with that little contraption they're pretty difficult to get out. And what would you do with the pieces once they're seperated? The heads have been used as feet before, sure, but the eyebrains are kind of specialized to the point of uselessness.
I guess the emblem is copied from some old lego theme.
Stop using scalper bait "editions" we had one during comicon too about exclusives.
Also most of lego general's been exo suit this exo suit that,and the occasional feminist agenda, not many post of mocs or creative talk, not even some amazing power digger discovery. You faggots disgust me.
No one has brought up we're getting mother fucking dinosaurs in sets again.
>mfw another chance to pick up some lego dinosaurs after missing out on the DINO sets
This rumour intrigues me. Its weird since as far as I know Kreo got the license for Jurassic Park. Meanwhile Pratt was in the Lego movie, so he shouldnt mix them up.
I hope its true. And I hope that they go the Indiana Jones way and release sets based on the earlier movies, too.
> tfw Dino sets were so shit, shit colorscheme, shit designs, overpriced and dinosaurs all look like actionfigures
Really hope for some brickbuilt dinosaurs but HAHA, they didn´t even do a LOTR war-elephant so who am I kidding, Lego animals will all have overspecialized moulds and the brickbuilt ones they sell will look shit like the reindeer from Santas workshop.
Kreo did nothing with the license, then again not much kre-o crap on regular retail shelves besides combiners and blindbags, most kre-o crap is toys r us exclusive now. Maybe they lost massive bucks on Battelship sets.
I have a feeling it's true. Pretty much all the Kre-O stuff that isn't Transformers has done poorly no matter how much they invested in it (Battleship, GI Joe, etc), and this is far from the first time Lego would be making sets based on a property Hasbro has the master toy rights to. That, and the Dino sets have shot up in value in the aftermarket, so Lego probably realized the demand for more dinosaur stuff and decided to spring for Jurassic World - meanwhile, Hasbro figured that Kre-O was too unpredictable, so they just accepted whatever deal Lego offered to get the building toy rights and cut their losses. Besides, Chris Pratt is a massive fanboy and starred in the Lego Movie - I highly doubt he'd get them mixed up.
Do you think they'll ever remake Classic Space again, /toy/? With that Exo Suit and Benny from the LEGO Movie it seems to be more popular than ever.
This rumor males some sense because I know Hasbro has the License until 2015, so this and the production timeline of the average licensed set means that Christmas 2015 is plausible.
The Character Building sets bombed, shops had to slash the prices just to get the shop space back.
i decided to rebuild the very first two sets i got in the 80s , i will bricklink every piece in good/mint condition , sure i could buy whole set, but where's the fun in that?
i still have parts from old sets but they're hardly "playable" anymore.
>tfw you are extremely shitty at building and can only have fun with the instruction-made sets
Is being a failure something awesome, /toy/?
I think my problem is that i only have a very small collection of sets, and i refuse to Bricklink anything until i can have a good-sized hoard, so i can't build jackshit.
What do you mean by hardly 'playable'? For bricks of that age, they look pretty fantastic. A lot of lego from that era has changed multiple hands through hand-me-downs and is yellowed and scratched to shit. Those look great.
That's where LDD comes in.
It's like diet soda. It'll alleviate some of the want but not all of it (you won't hold what you build unless you cracklink it)
Weirdest part is that I was on a shopping site once and they listed a set named Frodo v.s. the Ringwraith. Seems like they replaced it with Saruman v.s. Gandalf after a couple of months.
I think that what really matters here is that there's no right way to play with Lego, and only fun matters.
And since i do have fun with my sets, i'm fine either way.
Yo guys, I just realized that I got one of these Chrome Gold C3POs back in 2007 when I bought my last lego set. Are they worth anything nowadays? Don't think I'd sell it or anything. Means a lot.
I just found this transparent red radar dish this and I have no idea what set it belongs to to. Bricksets giving me nothing. Anyone?
I do own a lego lego set, it's the lego truck in the blue 2x2 box which contains the lego truck, which, logically would contain a lego truck,and so on, which would make it a lego^infinity lego truck. [Toyler]get on my level[/toyler]
LEGO hasn't really acknowledged this semi-fragile kind of greebly construction before; first cuusoo project released because it was a good set idea rather than tumblr faggots voting for their pop cultures and politics.
>One of them is actually. One of the others is another reference.
Haha, fuckin' knew it.
>TFW Blue Shift was the only one of the originals I finished before my computer died.
Opposing Force was THE shit, though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqSva-2QgHE
Exactly. If LEGO released a science lab set with three male minifigs, nobody would give a shit. But when it's three female minifigs, it's 'too PC'.
It's not for the women, it's for the girls. Simple things like children's toys can make a huge difference to a kid's perception of which jobs are for which genders.
