Hey LEGO.... how about you don’t charge insane prices for your bricks?
@big freedom, *Hisses from top of gold pile*
@Kliment Voroshilov, I wonder how long it would take to 3D print every piece for a Lego death star... it’d probably be cheaper than the set
@Kyroll, well legos arent particularly complex shapes but they are small and would require decent detail so the printer required would be way more expensive.
@big freedom, because then they'd fall apart like the cheap knock off Legos. The acceptable margin of error when producing Lego pieces is something like 10 micrometers. It's really expensive to buy and run the equipment that is even capable of doing this. Not to mention the licensing fees for the big name lines like Star Wars and Harry Potter.
@Littlechuckie, hush up with your logic and facts! I want to complain about the high cost!
Good cause? Absolutely
Am I giving up my Legos? No
@LazyBartender, I might want kids one day is my reasoning
what do you mean ”unused bricks”?
*leans back in my throne of lego*
Are these children trying to out run angry, abusive, barefoot fathers?
Maybe I'll be impressed when they start selling their bricks at a reasonable price.
@ThePandaPool , they're expensive I believe because they ensure the tolerance for each brick is within 0.0001 mm while mega blocks are 0.1 mm
I'm 22 and just got my first lego set in YEARS for Christmas. It's the Central Perk set and I'm so excited to build it
How about I donate all my lego compatible bricks?
I'd guess maybe a couple bucks per pound of Lego, maybe similar to how you turn in recyclables for change
How much we talking?
@Frodrevo, about tree fiddy
@Frodrevo, the cost of shipping?
@Ewok612, aw I thought I could makes some dough
