Lego Loses Its Unique Right To Make Lego Blocks

Suppafly Re:makes sense, meh (576 comments)

Lego needs to start selling bulk pieces cheaply.

While that would make sense to you or me, Lego is not in the business of selling anything cheaply. Selling official lego cheaper, would just make them lose money.

As with anything else, there are two types of people, those who are willing to buy generics and those who aren't.

Lego Loses Its Unique Right To Make Lego Blocks

Suppafly Re:makes sense, meh (576 comments)

Megablocks are great in the larger (duplo, quantro style) sizes. The smaller lego size is where they suck. The tolerances don't need to be as good on the larger sizes, and megablocks are a lot easier to find in stores than duplo and quantro blocks.

Lego Loses Its Unique Right To Make Lego Blocks

Suppafly Re:makes sense, meh (576 comments)

According to one interview I read somewhere, the most expensive Lego parts to manufacture are the mini-figs. I believe they cost something like a little over $1 US to manufacture.

I seriously doubt that. They'd be selling them at a loss otherwise.
