Over the last few weeks, I have become even more keenly aware that Lego is the ultimate good. And if it isn't THE ultimate, then it's damn near close. Need convincing?
Thomas Aquinas once sought to prove the existence of God by arguing that corresponding beliefs about what is and is not generally good suggested that some basis of ultimate good must exist upon which we all base this. Along this line of reasoning, should two opposing sides which seldom agree or get along both agree upon that which is good, it places its goodness above question.
Case in point, both DC and Marvel have joined with Lego to create some amazing toys. The DC Universe sets have already hit the shelves and the Marvel sets are being promoted for release sometime closer to the release of the highly anticipated Avengers film in May.
It's mass hysteria. Cats and dogs, living together!
This is nothing short of a summit.
Lego is so amazingly awesome that neither company could dare to venture off on its own to one of the knock-off imitator lines of construction toys (like the Transformers did...I'm so disappointed). I encourage whomever it is that wins the upcoming presidential election to consider getting Lego involved in foreign policy matters. Perhaps each head of state willing to sit at the table and discuss human rights reform gets a custom minifigure in their own likeness.
I know I, for one, would allow as many inspectors as need be walk through and inspect my nuclear facilities for one of those.
