My brother and I were talking Lego before dinner tonight. Their son(my nephew) is really into the Star Wars Lego and mostly gets them for the mini-figs. It’s to the point where, when his parents buy a set, they’re doing this mini-fig/$ math to see if it’s worth it. At this point the Death Star is actually the most economical set for that ratio. But it’s still $500. But DAMN if it isn’t cool
As the discussion went on, I was thinking that, if I had all the money I needed, I would go get Liam all the more recent City sets. This way he could build his own Lego town. Darcy had this, and it was awesome!
And it was around this time that MASK(wow, lots of links in this post) was on the air, so we started to convert the buildings and whatnot to be weaponized bases and whatnot.
We would also build a whole story around it and play our scenarios. The Mayor was always the dumbest while the used car salesman was the mastermind of the whole place. Fun times for pre-teens.
And it kept us out of trouble.
So yea, if I had all that cash, the City sets would be first on my list for Liam. Then the rest of the Star Wars sets for me
