Too many bricks in the wall? Lego slashes inventory


Re: Do your research

Dear Lego employee,

When I search lego on Amazon the top 6 hits are:

LEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box 10696

LEGO Super Heroes Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown 76108 Building Kit

LEGO City Great Vehicles Heavy Cargo Transport 60183 Building Kit

LEGO City Great Vehicles Pickup & Caravan 60182 Building Kit

LEGO Super Heroes the Hulkbuster Smash-up 76104 Building Kit

"LEGO in general does not make specialty pieces for sets".

The Caravan has a single piece for the camper and the truck. Hard to see a lot of re-use.

The Super Hero kit has some sort of death ray piece. Perhaps I had bad parents but I don't remember these from my childhood.

The Heavy Cargo has a speciality.. wait there's that word again, a totally non custom and re-usable helicopter and truck.

The super hero sanctum includes everyone's favorite generic re-usable LEGO piece, the wall manacles.

"I know this is a lot of El Reg commentards, but as usual you should do a bit of reseach before mouthing off."

* ahem *

LEGO's reputation of producing overpriced sets chock full of custom, useless-out-of-context pieces, might-as-well-throw-the-whole-kit-away-if-you-lose-anything sets is very, very well deserved.

Researchfully yours,
