Nice

Nice review!

I always thought it really funny that adult collectors latched onto the LEGO line.

Most of my friends who are parents only started getting their kids these sets because of the high prices and difficulty finding major characters of the 3 3/4 figures. Now, some of these sets go for so much money, it's bonkers. You could buy your kid a ton of 3 3/4inch stuff for what some of these little sets go for now. You can buy the giant Legacy Millenium Falcon for the same price as the Lego set, which is crazy.

LEGOs are a puzzle, man!

LEGOs are a puzzle, man! It's a challenge to anyone who steps up and plays. One of the reasons I stay with it is because of how they engage you and make you think about what you're trying to accomplish and how you're going to do it. To me, that isn't much different from any transforming toy I have.

I hope

I hope you didn't read my comment as a diss on Legos, Eva. That would be like dissing oxygen. ;)

No, the sets are awesome. My buddy's kid has an entire everchanging city of Lego going on in his bedroom which I love to see...

no, it's just strange... the pattern of how these toys got so popular is odd. Parents who can't afford/find the 3 3/4-inch figures, then parents paying high $$ online for some sets for christmas presents, then scalpers buying up a lot of the sets only to sell, then adult collectors embracing the line, is a unique one in the history of toys.

No bricks or plates, correct.

No bricks or plates, correct. There's a little Bionicle, but otherwise it's straight-up Technic. The hoop wheels were used again in some other sets, but IIRC, they made their debut here.

It is to scale with minifigs

It is to scale with minifigs (see video), but it does not come with or interact with any of them.
