Has Lego gone too far?

Postby Texhnophille » Fri Sep 07, 2018 1:09 pm

And here I thought that bearded chainsaw bikers were the most ossum Ninjago villains could do.
But it looks like they outdid themselves. Again.

This design is  :666: across the board. Got this little dragon hunter from September Ninjago magazine.
The minifig's lore/background is just as sick. That OT chain is said to be made of one of the most solid materials in existence ( :warhead: ?), and Talon (that's the name) wears that bandana because he was pretty annoying and a loudmouth. So it's heavily implied that at some point his mates went and "fixed" the bandana to his mouth. And if you look close enough, you can see something that kinda looks like some stitches.

I agree, but possibly not for the same reasons. For some reason, that Iron Baron figure reminds me of a Metal version of TotalBiscuit's little cartoon incarnation from the Co-Optional Podcast intro. I know it sounds stupid, but I want to get it JUST for that purpose.   :lol:

Too far? What about the pants-less Harumi in Throne Room Showdown?

Well let's say that's the other spectrum of ossum.
