Keep on brickin'


Someday I want to be famous enough to be made into a Lego mini figure. Although to be fair, they pretty much all look like me anyway now...because I'm bald...and I have perfectly cylindrical growth on the top of my head.

You mean you are not famous enough for this yet?

Evil Genius said...

Fran, this is what makes you a Level 1 Operative. Keep up the good...er, evil work!

I already have the Evil Genius lego man, the Young Evil Genius, and the Evil Genius with Light Saber/Picnic Basket.

We share the same dream, EG, although you have a leg up on me with your cylindrical growth.

you know, I've never thought of Lego as being a sort of cultural barometer, but now that you mention it...

What about PlayMobil?? if you're made into one of THOSE characters, then you've REALLY hit the Bigg Time!!

Do they even make kids lunch boxes anymore? Because the Evil Genius lunch pail with Thermos would absolutely rock!!

Evil Genius said...

Chris, that is brilliant! Why stop at mini figures? They could make entire Blogger Lego action sets! Each blogger could be in their own room with two open walls and a computer and be able to link to other blogger action sets.

The "Some Guy's Blog" set would have some fish carvings and some blue prints strewn about, an open door with a clear view of the toilet, and Megan chopping some vegetables.

There could be a "Flannery and Doc" set with beer mugs and tikki torches with Flann typing while little Riley and Lucy mini-mini figures are tugging at her.

A "Grant Miller Media" set with an AP wire, a vacuum cleaner leaving impeccable Lego lines, Pavement and Neutral Milk Hotel CD's covering up a stack of Dave Matthews and Yes albums, and a spare room for his ego.

The Two Minutes in the Box set would basically be an S&M dungeon with some hockey sticks laying about.

I could obviously go on for quite a while...

Evil Genius said...

SD, again this is how you get to be a Level 1 Operative. Excellent!!!

You are now in charge of my entire marketing division.

Red said...

Heym I get to be part of this set too, right? I want the costume from the watercolor you did!

Evil Genius said...

Are you kidding me, Red? "WILATU" is going to be the big $100+ set of the series. Multiple levels to the Evil Lair. Hidden missile silo. A music library with a wing dedicated to The Smiths. Huge aquarium with goldfish (possible equipped with lasers.) Interchangeable heads for my multiple personae. My private coffee shop with full-time barista. And a slave labor argyle sock sweatshop.

BTW - has anyone clicked on the picture?

Red said...

So what I'm hearing you say is, there's _absolutely_ going to be a Red figure for the set. Possibly with multiple outfits. Goody!

Evil Evil Genius said...

Absolutely! Not only the Mandarin dress, but several others. And they already make a figure for Princess Leia's metal bikini, so we just have to put your head on it.

Keep on brickin!

You could go for quite a while... in the S&M hockey-stick-filled-dungeon?! I think not, but let's give it a try anyway.

I have special allowances for bald men that look like legos.
