This just adds further proof to my argument that Lego is not just for kids!

Thats Just brilliant I love Lego and we are literally in the process of bringing another fan into the world ( contractions every 10 minutes ) any duplo stuff any good this time around , my other kids are 22 and 18 so it was a bit basic then ? I think they do a duplo train set but thats about it .

Just forwarded that to my Lego-obsessed nipper, looking forward to another three days of Lego raking sounds coming from his room.

Real men would have used Meccano...

Emulating something that is round and metal out of things that are plastic and square doesn't make sense to me!

I'd assume be bloody brilliant at building stuff, send LEGO some pics and ask for a job!

It was built by apprentices and graduates at Rolls Royce I'm fairly sure. Still, I'm immensely jealous they get paid to play with lego grumpy

Outstanding and as has been commented, is there anything you can't build out of Lego?

Cool but IMHO Lego lost it when it started producing bespoke kits. It's supposed to fire the imagination into building something unique, not a kit that everyone else has...

Ah, but they don't stay as bespoke kits for long. Ours simply get broken up and end up in the huge Lego box to be built into anything that captures the imagination.
