Notabunny: That's cool!


The $169.99 price tag, not so cool.

Look out on a Lego day, for blocks that cause the darkness of my sole.

It's normally about $.10/piece, this one's is over 2000 pieces. It's technically a good value.

lifeslammer: For 170 bucks, you could get that.

Or you could get this:

and 6 more sets



Or this https://www.amazon.com/Tomax-Starry-Vincent-Jigsaw-Puzzle/dp/B00HWZEWAA/ and more.
Or this https://chelseaneedlepoint.com/products/starry-night-vincent-van-gogh-needlepoint and more.

Most of the 2D(-ish) sets feel like they're shoehorning Lego into something outside its wheelhouse, losing the aspect of building which is more or less Lego's raison d'être.

/although... still a little tempting

Larger, more detail, more satisfying when finished, can be hung up on any wall or in a window, and best of all

Does it come with a LEGO severed ear?

Tyrone Slothrop: Does it come with a LEGO severed ear?


If I were Vincent Van Gogh's ghost, I would be really pissed off that with nearly every single mention of my name, somebody brings up the ear thing. He's got so much to be famous for, but no, it's always ear, ear, ear.

In related news, the second LegoCON is next Saturday. You can stream it live at midnight EDT.

Long gone are the days when Lego's were a toy to encourage a child's imagination. Now they are a toy to test an adult's ability to follow instructions.

They still are.

They also sell more adult sets than they used to.

In a curious bit of coincidence, this set being released this year contains a 1x1 round tile decorated to look like an ear. Since you're pretty much guaranteed to get an extra, you could buy both sets and put one ear on the platform next to the Van Gogh minifig. Or order the piece from Lego when it's available.

I remember when kids played with Lego.

I've built a few, including the Saturn V and the Lunar Lander. They're really fun!

yup, when they did their most recent financials the biggest selling theme is still City. They still make the most on just boxes of random bricks.

These sets for adults are not a replacement of the business, they're an addition to it.

This is pleasing to me. Just like tits, made for kids, enjoyed by adults

The Starry Night is a beautiful painting! It'll be really useful for kids to develop their creativity.
