Happy Birthday Lego

Post by Octan on 8/10/2012, 6:27 pm


Today marks The Lego Groups 80th Birthday, they have come a far from the original wooden duck. A small history of the company has been posted on LEGO's new social media aggregator Rebrick

Here is a small blurb from it;

"Before the internet being an AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO) could be a lonely affair. It was very difficult to find other fans. As one AFOL described in an interview, it was like “finding a needle in a haystack”.
But with the internet, in the early-mid 90’s, came the opportunity to connect. Back then it was only very tech-savvy AFOLs who could find each other through this new digital space. Communication was text-based (English) and centered on the joy of having found likeminded others who liked LEGO products.They also released a great short film

I am kind of surprised on how non-Lego 'family friendly' this video is, I am guessing it was done by an outside contractor, considering a usage of 'damn' slipped through. Not to be a complainer, I loved the video, but was surprised at this during my second time watching.

Good video. I personally would have perferred an entirely brickfilmed video, but this is cool too!
