As I was pretending to walk through a LEGO medieval village, I happened upon this fiery scene at BrickCon 2010:
I kinda feel sorry for them. Here, they’re laying witness to a local building going up in LEGO flames, and all they can do is raise their little LEGO arms in tiny terror.
But you wouldn’t know they were upset since all of them have smiles painted on their respective faces. Such is the plight of a LEGO minifigure – forever cast to a single expression until you swap or spin their head brick.
One of ’em is even carrying a LEGO pitchfork – like that’s going to do him any good! I hope they all have LEGO insurance.
