Speechless, but I've got a keyboard. Realistic, functional (though they don't actually shoot) weapons made of Legos have landed in my inbox.
BrickGun apologizes that orders may be delayed because of "a huge amount of press which is sending our sales through the roof." Not my first thought, but close: when does the first kid get blown away because he's packing plastic? Right behind that: is it legal in Legoland?
I shouldn't say Legos, the company would sniff, it dilutes the trademark. They're Lego bricks, patented 50 years ago.
I never liked their kits, but this might be an exception. Structured play my patootie. Over the years I've learned to sit on my hands and let kids build what they want. If they want my visions of grandeur they'll ask.
There's nothing finer at a certain age than sitting in the middle of a mess of Lego bricks, racing to finish your castle-- and to get more Lego bricks than your playmate.
Build your kit in a bottle, that would impress me. Otherwise, what's the point?
The folks at Boing Boing would disagree. They're positively obsessed with the little 'bricks'. Though they've twitted the Lego Group for making thousands of models over the years, at the same time you'll get "about 31,000" results if you Google Lego on boingboing.net
