Notice for Lego Fanatics
to anyone offended that a Playmobile figure is named Legoman
I know what
you're probably thinking. How dare she name a Playmobile figure
Legoman. It's just not right! Well, there is a true story behind the
naming of this adventurous character.
It started off
on the day that I originally came up with the idea of the adventures
of Legoman. The only thing missing was the main character. So I went
upstairs and popped open our huge container of assorted lego pieces.
I went through it an removed every lego person I could find. The
thing that I wanted to portray about Legoman was that he was just an
ordinary guy. An ordinary guy. The problem that I had was that all my
authentic Lego people were either firefighters or construction
workers. All I wanted was a plain clothesed character. I dug through
the bin again to make sure I hadn't missed anyone and I found a
couple of Playmobile characters I had thrown to the side. I didn't
really have any plain Playmobile people either. I had a gardener and
an esso station attendant. I thought my dream of bringing Legoman to
life had come face to face with a brick wall. Then I noticed that my
little sister had a little Lego house built and inside was a plain
looking, unemployed toy playmobile man. I knew it wasn't real Lego
but I didn't care. It was the only normal looking toy I could find.
So, I named him
Legoman. I figured that since he was Playmobile and not Lego, the
main focus of his adventures would be for him to try and find out why
he's named Legoman and what happened to his "parents". I can tell you
people who have a big problem with this, that Legoman knows he's
different and he just wants to fit in. I'd suggest following his
adventures to see if he ever finds out that he's not really Lego.
If you're still
ticked and think this whole page should just not be up because it's
false advertising, I have one piece of advice for you.
