K’NEX Atomic Coaster is 4′ tall, contains 1,200 pieces, and looks like a serious undertaking.
All I can say is this guy probably loves factory videos too. But surely somebody they know must own a steadycam rig, right?
What most people don’t know about Villa Savoye is that it is actually full of color, and pastel color at that. But the black and white photos from the time don’t communicate that. Legos don’t come in those colors I guess.
If you tell your kid it’s a Metroid or Mega Man blaster, they might take to the Little Tykes Garden Bubble Leaf Blower more enthusiastically. But bubbles usually entice kids pretty quickly if you have trouble.
I love these little wooden bird ornaments by Jacob Pugh. They are too cute with the color juxtaposed against the english sycamore and black walnut.
My parents are visiting this week and mentioned Playmobil, which I thought was still the semi-cousin of Lego. But they do a lot more vehicles, like this crazy Hay Baler. If you’re a fan of Colbert, you’ll appreciate the Joe Six Pack Dressage Set.
Woah. I definitely need a Rancor for my desk. I like that Lego has undertaken making some of the custom creature figures and not just changing graphics on the minifigs.
