I must dig out the link to the Lego Escher stuff. It's super awesome.

The lego Escher stuff is great, I used to visit that site quite often.

Zardoz, I wouldn't like that picture, but for the detail of the little bit of blood creeping in a small pool over the edge. Genius.

Not strictly Lego:

Also, don't you hate it when people try to pluralise Lego?

Since finding a Lego store in Milton Keynes a few months ago, my entirely fictional 'nephew'* has been treated to some awesome Indiana Jones Lego sets and may soon be getting some of the Lego Ferrari stuff as well, the lucky swine!

I am borrowing my wife and her brother's old City Lego stuff from my in-laws for my son. Yes. For my 18 month old son. Not for me. Similarly with me reclaiming my giant box of Castle Leego from my parents' loft. This is not at all so I can spend my evenings in one of the loft rooms making giant castles.

Lego was better in the 80s and early 90s, I reckon. Less silly custom pieces, and kits could be combined and used more imaginatively.

Making bastardised spaceships/cars/fortresses was way more fun than creating the proper models. I think I only ever bothered doing the proper models once then me and my brother would make the most fucked up inventions possible with the bits we had. Lego is such an incredible learning tool for kids imaginations. Best invention, ever.

Oh yeah, Technic Lego was for nerd kids. FUCKING NERRRRRRRRRRDS!!!

Seconded. Give a kid a box of LEGO with a horse's head in it, and he makes a horse. Give him a box of plain old LEGO bricks, and he makes anything...

This might be a good time to mention that my sister works for Lego, and get the majority of items at knock-down prices. Shame I'm not a big lego fan ;)

Suffice to say our nephews *always* get lego for their birthdays, which could be worse.

Exactly. But the new stuff (especially the "themed" stuff), has such specific peices that it's like making a very basic model, as the bits will only really go together one way. And a lot of them have so few pieces! The Harry Potter stuff being a good bad example of both of these gripes.

Absolutely thirded. One of my proudest moments in life was coming first place in the West Herts. Boys Brigade Lego Contest when I was about 9, with a spectacular Lego beach scene, complete with small pier and lighthouse.

As a kid, I also managed to knock up such wonders as a Lego DeLorean and a Lego Ecto-1. I really should see if my parents still have any of my old Lego stuff up in the loft.

If Lego are like any other manufacturer there will be a limit on the amount of stuff she's allowed to buy at cut down prices, and a restriction on reselling it. :(

I'm almost positive the caveat of getting stuff cheaper is that she's not allowed to sell it on, by proxy or otherwise ;)

I was odd in that I (no doubt influence by my parents 'helping') kept all my Lego seperated by colour. And unlike all my friends, didn't just grab random shaped and coloured bricks and stick them together when making stuff.

Building the 'proper' models had to be attempted at least once, if only so you could say you'd done it. I made the giant spaceship I was given once... it had no less than three huge seperate pieces - a front double-cockpit bit, a rear docking frame, and a space trailer-style lab that 'docked' into the frame. Together, it formed a huge, heavy ship that was impressive to look at but was almost impossible to pick up without knocking one of the legs off or one of the improvised hinges giving up and something falling out.

So I built a model of the (PC original) Silpheed with the bits instead. Can't find any pictures of it, though.

Apparently, the little Lego people are called 'minifigs'.
