It may have been a great toy but if you didn't have one of those things you put on the end and turn I think you had a problem.

Their range is so wide it is hardly surprising they have a large market.

Most of their stuff is based on movies and the like whilst most of these are just plastic figures. What any of this has to do with a construction set I don't know. Anyone would think this was a kids toy.
What I do know is that if you want to buy a large quantity of straight forward old fashioned single colour and transparent building bricks, then you will have to buy them second hand because the sets are woefully inadequate.
I had an urge to go mad and buy loads of bricks earlier this year, I lost interest when I found Lego don't sell them on their own any more, you have to buy a set where half of the claimed "pieces" are premade figures and ornaments and a lot of the "bricks" are a single pip.
