[Meta] Want Legos! Want Legos Now!

Posted in: Fluff,Meta-gaming by Ariel on July 24, 2010

Legos. I had no idea how much fun I would have with them. I never played with Legos as a kid. We had Lincoln Logs. And an erector set, but I thought that was boring. I had friends with Legos and I played some at their houses but usually we played race cars or cops and robbers instead.

It wasn”t until we started playing Serenity that the Legos really got their place in our gaming. Before then Michelle would often use Legos to make props our to denote NPCs, but of course the scale was all wrong for our D&D miniatures. That made the pictures look funny sometimes as Indira or Sadi would be going up against a giant who wasn”t supposed to be a giant. And a yellow giant at that! Visit the World”s Biggest LEGO Shop!

LEGO Castle Trolls” Mountain Fortress (7097)

$124.95

Includes the Good King himself,  3 knights, 2 giant trolls, the Troll King himself, a troll sorceress, 2 troll warriors and a horse. Oh and an AWESOME castle.

LEGO Castle King”s Battle Chariot (7078)

$22.95

This battle chariot comes equipped with cross bow, spears and banners flying high, or it will, after you put it together. Sigh. I miss D&D.

LEGO Brickmaster: Castle (Lego Castle)

$15.29

Comes with a hardcover book. Full color photos and easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions on how to build the castle. Even I can make a great castle with these instructions.

LEGO Star Wars Rebel Trooper Battle Pack (8083)

$7.99

Perfect to adapt these pieces to our Serenity campaign. The ice cutter has 2 flick fire missiles, a rotating gun and a cargo box. Perfect for smugglers like us. Er, business people looking for exciting and unusual opportunities… That”s us.

LEGO Star Wars Echo Base (7749)

$19.99

If you can find this set, it is so cool! Includes 5 figures — 2 snow troopers, 2 Rebel troopers and Han Solo in winter gear. I wish I could find a way to introduce Tauntaun to the Serenity universe…..

LEGO Indiana Jones Temple Escape

$109.99

Indiana Jones Legos convert to Serenity pretty well. That dusty, dirty barroom brawl vibe translates very well. You can play around with the plane design and get a passable space ship.

LEGO Indiana Jones Jungle Cutter Set

$38.99

There are some fun jungle pieces in this set. The cutter is fun and like the plane in the previous item, the cutter can become something more Serenity-like with a few changes. I love the ivy and greenery.

These are a few of the Legos I am saving up for, have bought or borrowed since we started playing D&D and Serenity. The possibilities are endless and I love just messing around with the standard designs. I hope you might find a Lego set to get your imagination fired up, too!

  1. I just counted our inventory today and we have 43 sets as opposed to the 60 we have, when we just got a shipment in. We have the Echo Base and there’s always new ones coming in. I’m with you; I adore the little buggers. It’s fun to invent stuff with the bricks, too.

  2. I’m running the campaign next, and I’ll confess that I’m making the scenario strictly based on what LEGO props I can build.

    Awesome.

  3. I hear that someone nefarious has stolen Maggie’s bird….. I never liked that bird.
