Some time ago I blogged about my nephew, whose 'work around the house' consists of playing with Lego. It's still his primary occupation. (Well, those houses, trucks and spaceships are not gonna build themselves!)
However, he's ramped the work up a bit, going so far to design a new minifigure. He's sent his design to Lego's Australian office, with a note (transcribed by his mum):
"Please can you make a Lego man that is half man, half robot please. This is what it would look like. For the next minifigure series."
I think this would be a pretty cool Lego minifigure!
