    1. Remember when Lego™ used to be about building whatever the fuck you wanted, and not trying to follow a specific set of instructions, or replicate some media franchise?

      Do a an M[c]S search of “lego” and tell me this one doesn’t look like it was, by far, the most fun:

      • I can’t think of a single set that didn’t have some kind of set of instructions in it on building a specific thing. I always built that first then built whatever I wanted. Especially the huge yellow castle with the horses that were Picasso looking things made of a stack of bricks. That thing was awesome.

        The licensing thing, though, is kind of crazy. I WANT to buy the ATAT kit and make it. As much as lego kits cost, I don’t think the licensing actually adds that much to the cost, just make it easier to sell huge kits to parents as well as kids.

        • They may have already started making theme-kits even when I was a young’un, but the ones I remember distinctly were my first ones: the kits that had only rectangular bricks, in only six colors (red, blue, green, yellow, white, black), with peg-patterns ranging from one to twelve pegs, and always the same 1/2-inch thickness. The kits were anywhere from 50 to a few hundred pieces, with only the picture on the box and maybe a pamphlet inside showing what you could make with that particular kit.

        • Even the ones that weren’t specifically themed always had instructions for 1 or 2 things to make. My kids usually put together the pic that was on the box, then immediately tore it down and did more interesting projects.

    3. I was briefly confused about why the creator gave Marty a big gun. Then I realized that it’s a video camera, and that piece is supposed to represent a video camera. For some reason, my LEGO creations called for a BFG a lot more often than a camera. Also, I like what they did with the radio; I’ve done similar things myself.
