Too many bricks in the wall? Lego slashes inventory

Re: LEGO isn't what it used to be...

I guess you didn't see the Lego Masters TV competition. This was a lot of standard brick stuff mixed with some of the specialist blocks/pieces. Some truly inspired designs and builds.

From my perspective, I agree with the comments about creativity - my youngest loves Lego, but only for building the models as sold. My experience was totally different, creating buildings, vehicles, spaceships and landscapes from my own imagination - much more rewarding IMHO.

Final point, to the tune of Frozen's Let it go:

"Lego go, Lego go, Logo sell those bricks to me

Lego go, Lego go, even better make them f-ree-ee

I don't care what your profits are;

Let the bricks go cheap

The prices really bothered me every time"
