Flog It Blog It, Lego It Is Not!
Children can now build their own drug dens with a shocking new play kit inspired by TV show Breaking Bad. The sell-out £160 kit, branded 'SuperLab', lets any child or adult recreate Walter White's notorious crystal meth lab. Complete with protective masks, drug paraphernalia, figurines and a version of the car from the show, infantile adults can even act out scenes from the series. The toy looks similar to a classic Lego set, although it is not connected to the Danish company in any way and was made by a separate firm. No question the set is intended for adult collectors and not kids, though you wouldn’t know it from the promotional copy on the Citizen Brick website, which reads, “Who knows what fun you’ll cook up with this deluxe set, chock full of realistic details and three exclusive minifigs! Over 500 parts!” Gosh and we thought those nutty people at Playmobil were bad but this really takes the biscuit. Lego it ain't. Beat that Playmobil we say.
