Seriously, Legos cost a god **** mint these days for anything besides the lame ten piece "Guy with motorcycle" sets.
Yeah, I popped in to a Lego store in the mall and made the mistake of glancing at the price tags. Some of the large sets were pushing $200, easy. Even those basic "lego dude with accessories" ones were like $14 min.
Is this a new thing? When I was a kid we had a Scrooge McDuck's vault-sized amount of Legos; you could dive into the pile and swim around in 'em. I can't see my parents laying down the kind of cash that it would take for that nowadays.
