We actually got these at work as part of a team building exercise we did at our department's retreat (we had to make a castle). Afterwards we built a couch (uncomfortable) and a fireplace for Christmas. Now they've sat in this huge block in the corner taking up space and reminding us that we'd rather have just all gotten $50 as a Christmas bonus.
I have these in my office, we used them to build a meeting room. Not as nice as they look on video.
"How's that start up going?"
"We built all the offices with giant Lego blocks and went bankrupt."
Cool concept but holy crap expensive! The most basic desk you can buy from them is over $400
Build anything you want! Like walls! Or walls! Or even a Wall!
This is something I'd buy a bunch of, and not know what to do with. Then it'll take up a bunch of space and I'll end up throwing it out. But I still want.
I wonder if you need one of those brick separator tools to get 'em apart...
And you thought the regular ones were expensive: imagine what these cost!
That's a no, dawg.
That's a no, dawg.
-Every building inspector
"...in any shape, size, or pattern!"
Yeah, as long as it's pretty much rectangular.
They will make a wall you cannot lean on
Yeah... but what stops me from going all ‘kool-aid’ man on one of those walls?
More plastic shit. We'll be eating these in our fish in the not too distant future.
My question is why did it flashed to someone playing ping-pong?
Oh yes, please more plastic!
Can you insulate them? I want make a sweet ass LEGO cabin.
LEGO is already plural.
Yeah, I doubt they meet OSHA, ADA, building code, or fire code when considering commercial applications.
"these plastic blocks..."
nah you're goin backwards bro.
Fuck you environment... take this!
Is there any chance these could be made out of recycled plastic?
Don't want to step on one of those bad boys in the middle of the night.
How do you prevent them from tipping over, especially if they're used to build large walls?
Make them affordable and from sequestered carbon dioxide and you've got a deal.
Last I looked into these they were so outrageously expensive that it was cheaper and easier to just build real walls, so I don't really know about using it as a building material. Could be wrong tho.
I wish I could have been there in the meeting where they came up with this ad. Like "ok how do we describe how giant LEGO would work without using the word LEGO?"
Great, except the part where they're not connected to the floor in any way, and can be pushed and knocked over.
It's really cool until you realize it's $7.30 a brick, and forget about shipping enough to build walls or castles.
Maybe if your business had a disposable income... But still.
Too much plastic! We need to remember what fills the ocean and garbage dumps. Building is so bad for the environment especially these plastic bricks. Yuk. I don’t care if they are young and it’s a cool idea. The world is dying and we need to just cut back in this sh&t
I want to know the flammability rating on those bricks
Soo.. we recycle everything into these fuckers?
how heavy are they?
plastic Plastic PLASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Landfills full of giant plastic legos
Regular Legos are already expensive as fuck. These must cost an entire country's GDP.
This would be good if the bricsk could be made from recycled plastic
