SWEET! Time to warm up the dvr!

I have now watched this. I was very impressed with what they showed, except for the fact that it show cased the now dead LEGO Universe. Its great to see how the designers start and plan and talk. And its always good to see people I've personally met on a tv show. I went 'HEY! I met him!" They had some commentary about AFOL's. They talked about LEGO World, that humungous convention in Europe. Over all, it was good to see. I enjoyed it. And yes, it is saved in my dvr.

I'd invite people over to watch it...the entrance fee is: sorting 2 gallons of my unsorted bricks, washing the dishes, and donation of 100 tan bricks. :wink: Oh, come on, its a lazy Sunday morning, a girl can make a joke or two.

I was able to watch this yesterday through our on-demand service, and was quite glad I did. (Thanks for the head's up, Bruce!)

I was quite interested in seeing the mold for the new die, apparently the most expensive they've ever made! Most of what was mentioned about AFOLs centered on Mindstorms, although they did show some adults putting together Tower Bridge, as well as a large MOC of a Dutch building (I can't remember which at the moment.)

I'd recommend it to anyone who can catch it.

Yeah, it was a good view. I finally saw it last night. I'd acquired it last year sometime but never got around to watching it. It was even an option on Qantas when we flew to and from Frankfurt but we didn't watching it. It was really interesting and finally seeing the machines in action was impressive.

The same program was on the National Geographic channel last year, here the series is called 'Megafactories'. It is alot of fun to watch how those little plastic parts are actually made.

It was a model of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
