Maybe you should start converting your cult of personality into a full blown religion.

You could market yourself as the "Sexy buddha"

Instead of telling people to rub your belly for luck, you could tell them to "stroke my dong-a if you want the wonga"
And, as per proud American tradition, any crazy new cults have to be launched from (or at least headquartered in) California.
But if you go with the Platinum Cult Package, you also get a few loudly testifying followers in Florida, and a randomly distributed set of five hippies who will swear your energy is divine.

I still have an unspent gametime card for that game floating around on a bookshelf somewhere. I lost Internet connection near the end and, by the time I got it back, the game was a goner. First world sad stories.

But don't forget to preorder now and receive a used compound, a squad of gun nuts, a burned out school bus, and 50 gallons of LSD!

I agree, these are beautiful! Also, there is a Trans purple chain in an elves set.

First Official Look at LEGO Angry Birds

Last month, it was announced that The LEGO Group would be producing official LEGO Angry Birds sets that will be coming out in 2016 in conjunction with the upcoming Angry Birds movie. Today on Kotaku, we have the first image of what one of the characters would look like. As you can see from the image above, it is Jason Sudeikis’ Red in LEGO minifigure form. LEGO Angry Birds will also be displayed at San Diego Comic Con next week so we can expect to get a better look at what LEGO has planned during the convention.

So, are those sets going to be really flimsy, just like the actual Angry Bird structures? :/

Or current super heroes sets - I could see them relying on 2x2 jumpers and the like for semi-durable connections.

If they make an egg mold that might mean another farming wave for city though!

My god, that's a beautiful set. The garage door roof technique is brilliant.
