Quote of the Day, sort of

"This is Lego being a corporate bitch."  The Red Headed Menace.*

*He and Railfan are massively invested in Lego Bionicles.  (Yes, I know that they're teenagers.  I don't get it either.)  They buy sets for the sole purpose of re-using the parts to create new figures. A little while ago, Lego replaced Bionicle with "Hero Factory," which looks similar, and which, apparently, Lego promised would be backwards compatible.  The two of them had gone out and bought two sets, only to find that the skeleton was not capable of disassembly and the rest of the parts wouldn't work with anything but the set they were bought with.  Railfan's comment was "You broke my childhood, you no good ....."

The level of dramatic utterances around the house right now rivals Off-Broadway.
