It must be hard to walk without rhythm when the pegs are evenly spaced apart...

The art direction on the twin peaks set is nice.

Okay, I think I win for biggest Lego nerd for this thread - the only thing I really noticed with the sandworm is this: "Awesome! Beige Legos!"

I often wonder...in this world of Lego scene builders...is customization of stock Lego pieces "allowed"? That is, is cutting or otherwise customization of factory pieces looked upon by the true jedi masters as lazy or outright cheating?

I love the "Twin Peaks" set.

on second thought, the position of the thumper is all wrong, they need to be on the slip face of the dune above the worm so that they can hook in and roll up with the beast...bad form, looks like the old man of the desert is going to get their water this day.

I thought that was a maker hook, stilgar. But yes, they are definitely about to get et.

And then you go and ruin it all, by saying something stupid like Legos.

Even worse, if they select a Lego and can't use, they can't put it back until they draw blood with it.

Bless the Maker and His Legos. Bless His coming and His going. May His passage cleanse the world. May he keep the world for His people.

I must face my legos. I will permit them to pass over me and through me. And when they are gone only I will remain.

And some minor lacerations to the colon.

The sandworm is cool, but the cuteness of the Twin Peaks red room is indeed even cooler.

The attention to detail is amazing. Lego Laura's arms really do bend back!

Call me when somebody manages to cobble together a Lego no-room.

How do we know they haven't? Do we have a many-generations-golemed Duncan Idaho to detect them? I think not.

Time to get the BrIxian axlotl tanks working. I think I need more Legos to build one.

'Cause that's what understanding this whole thread makes me.

For crying out loud. LEGO. Never LEGOS.

No, the common and accepted usage in American English is "legos," no matter what the Danish firm prefers.

Insistence on "lego" as the plural or collective in the face of such common usage is slavish adherence to the dictatorial whims of the marketing subdivision of a capitalist company. Why not insist on also appending the (TM) to the name, or on only referring to them as "LEGO(TM) bricks, all rights reserved, used with permission"?

Not as long as I'm around.

I agree. I spent a few years going along with my fellow Lego nerds and saying "lego" all the time. Finally I gave up and just say "legos." It's what I called them when I was a kid. It's what everyone else calls them. And it's fun to watch more pretentious fans get all squirm-y about it.
