|Legoland Brick Review Capsule
|It's a friggin' brick. Free at New York Toy Fair 2005 and presumably similarly priced at the theme park which it promotes.
LEGO has made a few nifty promotional bricks, and by that, we mean probably enough to fit into your pocket. For example, there's a really nifty one that was created for Star Wars: Episode I and given away at the Star Wars Celebration in 1999. This is pretty much the same thing-- a Duplo brick with a fancy design tampographed on either side..
What you see is what you get-- it's a nifty collectible and if you like the concept of a collectible brick, this is a heck of a neat concept. Seeing things like this as keepsakes from conventions or for new licenses would be a cool ongoing thing as they pretty much display themselves-- they stack easy and are nice and compact. This one has printing on both sides, one side has a logo for the theme park and the other has a yellow LEGO minifigure breaking through. Neat.
Again, what you see is what you get-- this was distributed without packaging.
It's a short review, but an interesting piece-- it's a toy that was turned into a theme park, and this is yet another toy based on the theme park. The circle of life, eh? We like this piece and decided to show it here because we needed a quick review and it was just neat enough to show off once. So, there you go. Exciting.
