ENLARGE kopaka phantoka

sometimes dumb, ridiculous and/or offensive shit happens in the lego fandom (or fandoms plural i guess given how separate a beast the bionicle fandom is)

we're here to point and laugh and occasionally write long-winded essays about the fandom or even more long-winded reviews of the stuff this fandom's actually about

children's construction toys aren't serious business

if you're looking for unironically GOOD lego stuff though, then you're in the wrong place and want our other blog solace of legoman values (or any one of the countless other good lego blogs out there but eh who cares)

alternatively you're looking for our two other ironic masterpieces, thornax express and BIONICLES ADVENTURS COMIXS

no seriously you're looking for these two trust me

So apparently the fandom is reacting very badly to the announcement that LEGO does intend to press ahead with designing a LEGO Minecraft line…  I admit I’m unfamiliar with Minecraft beyond my brother’s addiction to it, and I do have my reservations about how effectively Minecraft will translate to a unique LEGO product (though I’m confident Mojang and LEGO can come up with something). Most of these comments, however, are something else entirely and show a devastating, sometimes outright offensive, lack of knowledge of what they’re talking about.  Normally I think of Brickset as one of the better bastions for intelligent LEGO discussion and debate, so this is really quite sad.
