If that's a whole line of kinetic sculptures... well I'm really excited about that.

My kids basically play with the lego figures. There are too many fucking tiny and individualized pieces in the sets that just get broken and end up as detritus in the bottom of the lego container. I think the specificity of them actually kind of hampers creativity. 

I started putting together an old set from 1983 that I loved out of individual parts on brickseek, so that'll be something to do with them when I have it all back together.

Lego's weird. It falls between toy and model, but I don't see those fish things as anything I would ever be "proud" to "display."  It's not like they're high art.  I think the architecture pieces are closer to something "adult," but even those can't escape the fact that they're legos.

We've never had a broken piece of Lego, and it seems like you'd have to try pretty hard to break most of it?

If you question LEGO's ability to be art, scroll through any LEGO compilation instagram account like this one:

Speaking of Lego I was in my local Walmart this morning and I saw some sets for The Lego Movie 2 The Second one. They do look interesting and fun.

I mean the models that they're supposed to make. They instantly atomize into 1x1 squares.  Mine had very few of those, mostly big plates that were easy to find and keep in place.

I don't question that it can be art; I am suggesting that these are not art, but tat.

Oh, right - Yeah mine usually starts remixing them right away too.

That drives me crazy. When I break down a set, it goes into clearly labeled ziploc bags.

Yep. He loves the minifigs though.

I've started trying to "rebuild" his sets after organizing into Plano tackleboxes.  Takes forever, instantly atomized again.

Ah well. It's family time I guess.

Lots of those technic parts are making their way into the basic sets. I hate them.

There's a Death Star escape set I kind of want. I think I dig the environments more than the ships these days.

And I would like to build a Lego X-wing some day, or maybe Slave 1.
