A Lego Porg

Wow – there’s now an official Lego porg.

LEGO Porg Oct 2018

“Features authentic detailing, an opening mouth and flapping wings.

“Also includes a display stand with decorative fact plaque and an extra porg mini build.

“Porg without stand stands over 7” (19cm) high.

“Display stand measures approx. 2” (6cm) high and 1” (3cm) deep, and over 4” (11cm) wide.

“Relive fun porg adventures from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Otherwise it sounds fine and dandy, but does anyone else get an odd vibe from “fun porg adventures”—like being roasted by Chewbacca?!? The marketing department didn’t quite succeed with this particular copy.

Other than that, this almost makes me wish I’d kept my old Legos. Almost—it’s a little too specialized to use inventively in other builds.

Found via File 770.

Hey, look! We found a thing on the internet! We thought it was cool, and wanted to share it with you.

    Looking more carefully, I’m curious about the eyes and the toenails. (Toenails?!?)

    Today’s Legos are so specialized.. When I was a child, if I wanted a certain component I would have to use my mind and craft something like it, now it seems they just create a lot of new pieces just for each set.
    Which is good in its own way, the new Harry Potter sets have so much more detail.

    Mine are all safely stored. Even though a few sets in those large stored boxes are now valuable it seems, nothing would make me part from them and the memories of hours well spent 🙂

    We seem to be of the same vintage, then. 🙂 I haven’t really kept up, but from what I’ve seen over my siblings’ & niblings’ shoulders in stores, it seems the basic kinds of multi-use sets we grew up with aren’t around anymore.
