LEGO Star Wars almost bankrupt LEGO several times.


#6

From the look of that X-wing, you can sit Luke in it fine… but there’s no obvious port for R2D2… shame.


#7

You can tell that’s not true to the real Death Star’s design because the walkway includes OSHA-compliant safety rails.


#8

What shame? It’s Lego, you just take the dome off of R2D2 and stick him on the back of the X-wing. Voila!


#9

Huh? Need more info, plz.

First Xmas of LEGO Star Wars toys? BIG HUGE SALES, NOT ENOUGH STOCK
Second Xmas – NO STAR WARS MOVIE, LEGO waaaaay over produced.

I think this has happened 2x to them wrt Star Wars movie schedule and their own lack of awareness fucking them.

Excellent point. I don’t know what I was thinking.


#12

Oof.

This is why I cut toymakers a ton of slack over availability issues (Nintendo included). This can’t be an easy thing to do.


#13

What are those little green circles in the lower left of the picture?


#14

Lego.

(Or should it be Legos?)


#15

Nope. LEGO also seems to learn slowly and made the same mistake with Harry Potter.


#16

No, it shouldn’t be ‘legos’, according to the Lego company. :wink:

I get that the green thinks are components of the set, but what’s their intended purpose?

[Thanks anyway :wink: ]

Still eagerly awaiting the release of regularsizefigs.


#18

Disks shot from the gun.

Pew-Pew

Legoes, Legi, Legopodes and AAAAAAAGODMYFOOOOOT are all valid.

Also, Legolas.
