Yeah I'm 18 and play with legos.

FUN FACT: Most people who are adults secretly still love legos.

I think she meant the building-with-lego thing, NOT her actual person. Which i don't have a problem with. Non-kids playing with lego is how Brikwars got started, right?

Actually, I think it was art employees of LEGO inevitably falling in love w/ the products of their company's making, and then what you said.

Well, in my opinion, the reason Rayhawk fell in love with it is because it was the only good brand. Try building structures with Megablocks...

I got a tank once. The turret wouldn't fit on, and i broke it apart after staring at it for 20 seconds. I still have the minifigs somewhere.

I had a Megabloks jet fighter. You needed to use a huge amount of strength to get the bricks to fit snugly... and then it kept falling apart. You'd think that since you need so much force to put them together, they'd make a stronger connection than that.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

Who told you to buy MB at first?

I've only gotten three non-Lego products, two against my will.

The first was a giant castle for Saturnalia. It opened up, had a trap door, a lion, a bunch of cool stuff, but even back then I wouldn't play with it.

Then I bought one myself, but I was unaware that it was not Lego because it was a bootleg. It was of the little blue wizard cart and it looked exactly like the real thing but when I opened it up none of the pieces fit together right and they were all the wrong color. Weird.

And the third was this year, but I don't mind it that much. My girlfriend's mom got me a little model of Air Force One by BestLock or whatever. I don't mind that as much because it's just a little tiny model thatI would never use the parts for anything important anyway.

when I was little(er) I thought that MB and Lego were one brand and MB was a branch of Lego since they were shelved next to each other at Toys R Us, I got lots of MB because they had lots of cool(or so I thought a t the time) features and cost less(I got $1 or $2 a week so price was really important) but it sucked the way it was so hard to get the pieces to connect
