When the Lego web design people were told to “make it look feminine,” perhaps they took it a bit too… literally.

Lego Friends Emma’s Karate class 41002.

I recently bought this on clearance and instantly snapped it up as it is a retired set and for some reason the Lego Friends line resells really well. I personally do not like this line of Legos, mostly because I hate the minifigures as they are not the traditional Lego minifigs. You can’t mix and match minifig pieces with other Lego sets and would have loved a karate girl minifig. Also it’s kinda offensive that since Emma is the asian character, she has to know martial arts. And who the hell wears a bow to karate class?

The sets are kinda pricey for the amount of Legos you receive, but make up for it with having rare colored pieces. Also some of the clothing accessories are not compatible with regular minifigs, such as the kendo helmet and bow. Though it is kinda unusual to have a sword and kendo helmet in a girls toy set. The minifig legs do conform to normal lego blocks and the hands can hold regular minifig accessories. Now I just need to save up for the Dolphin Cruiser.

In the Lego Friends line one of the girls, Emma, is Asian so of course she knows martial arts.

Lego Friends: Dolphin Cruise.

Toy confession: I collect the Lego Friends line.
I just found out the MSRP for The Simpsons Minifigures will be $3.99

That’s bullshit.

hammer-fight: I still have all of my Ninja Turtles. I also still have all of my original NES and SNES stuff. I have some pictures posted, maybe a month back?
Rootfish: Nice! I'll definitely have to go back and check those out. I used to have an original Atari 2600 and a bunch of games, I sold them to a buddy in High School for $50. I'm going through a phase of buying toys. Originally was just supposed to be shelf decoration, then turned into collecting, then turned into trying to flip them on Ebay.
hammer-fight: I had the original pirate, alien, and star wars sets, among others. I’m still upset about it.
Roortfish: FUUUUUUUUCK. I feel your pain on parents giving away/selling your old toys. I had a bunch of 80's G.I. Joes, G1 Transformers and Star Wars toys. My parents made me give them to my younger brother who promptly broke tnem all. I still have my G1 Jetfire though.
