Sasha Grey (yup, that Sasha Grey) recently tweeted about this and when I saw it cross by on my twitter feed I just had to post something about it. To be honest, I think I had heard of these at some point before and logged them for future mention somewhere because I have this odd familiarity with these sets, but clearly the knowledge was lost in the mists of time so I thank Sasha for 'reminding' me of them because my friend Carly from Citric Sugar would probably think these were pretty cool. Well, at the very least, one of them.
These things are pretty classy and I'm glad LEGO did them. In my mind, it sure beats another Harry Potter or Star Wars set.
