Lego is for life, not just for Christmas
“In other news tonight, a local man was found dead in his home after police are saying what was an unfortunate accident involving a life size sword from the video game Final Fantasy 7. According to the victim’s son he had last spoken to his father asking him to help move a custom made replica built out of LEGOs to his house after it was left behind due to its unexpected weight. The plastic building blocks weighed an impressive 126 pounds according to police who had to take the construct in as evidence. Officers had to get extra help from the medical examiner as they attempted to remove it via gurney to maintain proper chain of evidence due to the interlocking bricks failing apart at the sheer weight of it.”
What part of "NO" don't you understand?
I'd be fine with it tbh. I have a real struggle of loving building it but then having nowhere to put them once I'm done.
When my first nephew was born I was so proud of being an uncle (around 18y/o) that I wanted to share the best things with him. I told my mom that he could have my toy cars and my Legos.
My mom pulled me aside where other family could t hear and said “that’s very nice of you to say but…” *voice turns into a WHISPERED reprimand* “DO NOT GIVE AWAY YOUR LEGOS! Do you have any idea how much that collection costs? You will save it for YOUR child.”
Aside from the fact that opening up my Legos was a stellar therapy when going through a rough patch, I now have my first son, my nephew lost just about every toy car I gave him, and I will never be able to thank my mom for everything she did for me.
And that's how I lost my Pokemon cards...my brother and I had a shiny Charizard and Blastoise I know it!
I dug mine out when we had kids. My wife proceeded to accept a bunch of megablocks from a friend and mixed them in with my legos. I was pissed. ...still am.
I've tried to get my kids to separate them but they wont. and they will be in tears when building something that just doesn't quite stay together since the two are mixed... 🤦♂️
The 25 year old me was ok with it… the 36 year old me with 2 kids is so pissed.
My dad would never do that. A realtor tried to give a big box of our legos away that were at a house we were selling. My dad made him get them back.
