I am willing to confess that I still have a tub of LEGO from my childhood hiding in a closet, mostly because I am sure I'm not the only one here still hanging onto that childhood favorite. I had the old school LEGO with no special kits, just primary colored building blocks that allowed the imagination to soar. Despite my love of those classic pieces, I must confess that these kits of classic architecture and landmarks are a tempting addition to the games closet.
The LEGO Architecture series is designed to celebrate the past, present and future of architecture by inspiring the budding architects of the future, but I know plenty of adult who would love to get their hands on these kits. LEGO plans to add new landmarks and buildings to the series over time; I for one would love to see some DC sites on offer. The only problem I see is once these kits are built, who could bear to break them down again?
