  • Most inappropriate conversion of a LEGO set.

    LEGO Paradisa - a series of LEGO sets revolving around an idyllic peaceful lifestyle, swimming pools, parties, picnics and happy happy times.

    Until one guy got bored and decided to convert this set:



    Into this WWI style field gun:



    Note that he's used the gunner's girlfriend's legs as a hinge support for the seat and the projectile, it is alleged, is her head.

    He must have gotten bored with the beautiful life and decided to take over - I'd say that makes him King of Paradisa...unless it simply starts an arms race. The horror...the horror...

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

    Many, many years ago, my Mother got so tired of me spending so much time reading about military history, playing with toy soldiers and building model warships, tanks and aircraft that she gave me a Tuppereware building set of girders, panels and other building stuff to play with. She left me alone for several hours to amuse myself. Imagine her horror upon returning to find, that I had built a WW I Gotha Bomber and a passable version of a WW II German Type VII-C U-Boat with the Tupperware play set.

        My Sister-in-Law had a strict law that none of her sons would ever play with any war toys or toy guns. One day, she caught my then four year old nephew running around the backyard with the arm of his sister's doll clutched firmly in his fist, shouting. "BANG! BANG!" My Brother in Law wisely and immediately bought the boy a toy gun to play with rather than worry about what sort of lessons that his son would be learning from dismembering and ripping doll's arms out of their sockets.

          That Guy was definitely NOT a Cubicle Dweller.

          Strange though how I never thought of those things with my Legos.

            Neither am I. I used to build forts for my kids and all sorts of other neat stuff. Panhard armoured cars, tanks, you name it.

              We used to build fortifications and hide the little Lego people inside... then blast 'em with pellet guns
              .
              The long toll of the brave
              Is not lost in darkness
              Over the fruitful earth
              And athwart the seas
              Hath passed the light of noble deeds
              Unquenchable forever.

                    First rule of dealing with boys, they WILL want to play war, and you can just friggin well get over it

                    Now I wouldn't mind if my son used Lego non violently, he might be a closet architech

                    But the only people that should be playing "house" are girls.
                    Life is change. Built models for decades.
                    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
                    I didn't for a long time either.

                      That has to eligible for some sort of prize!

                      BTW - what did he convert for the gun barrel? Looks like a lamp post or something.

                        Looks to be that he used the lamp post as the gun.

                        Whe I was little I tried making warships out of legos. Never looked like the real thing.

                          Actually his legs were her legs and his legs are the support for the seat.....look again.

                            Nice one!
                            When I was younger I sat and watched Ninja turtles and build with Lego.
                            Warships, planes choppers , I even had a army once! All soldiers had red hats ,officers had blue and the general had a white.
                            Among them there ware machine gunners , AT soldiers and snipers.
                            It was happy days , I think I go and steal back my Lego from my younger brother.

                              I never really got into Legos. My parents never really had an issues funding the plastic arms race.
