That's a really ambitious hairline for the dude in there. Also, do they have an action face on the back of their head for when they need to fire someone?

I thought this was pretty common knowledge at this point.

I had to check, and yeah, wishful thinking on his part. Lol. Lego should have a custom male pattern baldness hair piece for his minfig.

If only hair care (or regrowth) was as easy as popping on some lego hair.

What if one of them is an amputee, huh?

You can remove the arms pretty easily and then just dremel it at the right spot. I also have solutions for individuals afflicted with serious burns, crush injuries, and dog attacks.

I hope they have regular business cards too.  Novelties and non-standard things like this get someone's attention, for about ten seconds.  Then it gets shoved into a pocket and forgotten about, not stuck in the card slot in my wallet or briefcase.  Quickly it gets lost, often before it can get entered into a phone or computer, defeating the whole point of the business card.

You *can* remove limbs. With a little putty, you can even make the old spot 'smooth'.

Good luck fitting that in a wallet.
 
2014-06-10 11:31:53 AM  
Not very wallet friendly.  Maybe Trojan should consider something similar.

Hack Patooey: We had lego people as our wedding favors

[scontent-b.xx.fbcdn.net image 640x480]


We had little Lego avatars at our guest table for our Roman Holiday/Star Wars mash-up wedding. But I like your favor idea a whole lot.

img.fark.net

LEGO is a freaking fun thing at weddings I'm finding these days. Last fall I attended a wedding where the tables each had a vase full of bricks so guests spent a large part of the reception just making creative little creations (my favorite being a llama with a veil at one table). And their cupcakes each had these super tasty minty white chocolate genache bricks on them.

They do.

I'm sure most of these get passed down to people's kids pretty quickly.

Still, it's a nice touch. Minifigs are worth a little over $3, and it makes a nice story for your kids,

Saw these a long time ago and still wish I could have one!  They would be awesome.  Maybe Lego will allow us to purchase our own someday?

Oh, and here's something I put together for my wedding last year.  It wasn't a cake topper, just a piece that
was on our table.  Finding red hair was interesting, it's actually from the Black Widow if I remember correctly.

Phsht.  I met a guy from Wizards of the Coast who gave me his card.

It's been a while so the contact information is old.

For a company that is drowning in profit, I'm surprised their executives don't just hand out lifesize Lego figurines as business cards.

Benny and Unikitty were my favorite characters. This is probably going to be a well worth kit.

My SO worked on a lego book and got her own custom mini-fig as a thank you gift.  Pretty neat...

Lego thread?

A perfect opportunity to complain that the Ecto-1 set I put together last night was missing nearly 90 pieces!

And Lego just told me that Ray's hair piece is out of stock, so that won't show up with my replacements.
 
2014-06-10 12:58:15 PM  
Oh my God, it even has a custom mold indentation.
 
2014-06-10 01:09:49 PM  
In other Lego news, browsing Shapeways shows a LOT of custom Lego pieces... Now THATS a good use of 3d printing.

Sit down with them in your pocket and you're risking a puncture wound to the thigh.
