Oddly enough, with the exception of the online store, Lego's entire website network seemed to be busted beyond repair.

Did someone use the site as the battlefield for a BrikWars siege recently and not tell us?

1.)I spy with my little eye something that is a Rocket Propelled Grenade!
2.)I guess it's acceptable to fight communism, but Nazis are strictly off limits.
3.)You may hate peach skin, but if you hate the dark tanned stuff you're being racist.
4.)Some manner of twistable knob on the left side of the temple
5.)Gas cans made with revolvers. Never woulda thunk it.
6.)I would not be shocked if the red hound faces on the temple spat something
7.)Finally a dark green croc.
8.)Is that new hair on the cutlass-wielding minifig or the leather helmet?


My findings match yours.

Perhaps the reason lies in Lego's ideals. Perhaps they are encouraging Nazism and devaluing Communists. Or perhaps the US government is? :shock:

Ah, but these are no ordinary ants. these look like fire ants. They may possibly be related to the fleebnork...

Tzan sings:

" Spider Ant, Spider Ant, does what ever a lego Spider Ant does. Spins a web, digs a mound. Eats dimmies, wherever they're found. Look out! There crawls a Spider Ant! "

I think the problem is that Harrison Ford got too old for Indiana Jones to still be fighting Nazis. The Nazis weren't around that long, after all.

But Indiana Jones vs. communists? Lame.

I think the emphasis seems to be more on Soviets than Communists. Mainly because Cate Blanchett's character has a very Russian name, and none of those enemy minifigs look very Chinese to me.

I'm kind of interested to see how the movie shifts away from the legend-fantasy of the other movies and into "50s B-movie sci-fi" as I've seen so many articles mention. My wife has five bucks on "there's going to be UFOs involved in the end".
