Subby has clearly never had a close lego:body encounter before.

Shut up and take my money.

If I am told it is on back order, I will not be responsible for what happens next.

Seriously, as TFA says, how did LEGO itself not come up with this?

This is absolutely awesome... The potential here is endless as long as the tape supports some weight.

Have an annoying roommate who stumbles around in the kitchen in the middle of the night, waking you up?  Cover that floor with this tape.

Nah. Just scatter some legos. They're like caltrops. Save the lego tape for boobytrapping other surfaces so nothing is safe.

Lego didn't even come up with Lego, so why expect them to have this covered?

Seriously, those damn things are HIGHLY effective caltrops. When your kid starts playing with Legos, you stop walking barefoot through your house; simple as that.

I would assume because Lego has very strict quality and manufacturing standards. They probably do not want an adhesive backed rubber tape that wears out quickly to have their name on it.

Well this would have been nice to have LAST YEAR.  My wife wanted to make a container to allow my boy to play with legos while on a road trip last year.  Ended up having to saw a sheet into the size of the lid of an old lunchbox.  Bandsaw made decent work of it but the sheets were not close to the right dimensions and are darned expensive to do just cut down.  Cost, width, and length?

^ This.  I still have Legos from the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's.  They still look new.

Yep. Worst case for older sets is a bit of discoloration (if they were constantly exposed to sunlight) and some paint and sticker wear. But they will still connect perfectly to LEGO bricks built today. They might miss the occasional novelty idea or gimmick, but nobody else in the toy industry has that level of quality control.

On the other hand, I've never opened a pack of Mega Blox or other generics that didn't have defective pieces. The only knockoff that has ever came close in quality was Tyco back in the late 80s.

Prices: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lego-compatible-adhesive-tape-nimu​n​o-loops#/

There are different packages but they're between $1.50-$1.70/ft. An $11 package (6.5ft) would probably be enough to cover a lunch box lid.

You know what else sticks legos to walls? Regular tape.
