    If there's any copyright to this, it rests with either Samsonite or the Lego corporation, but definately not with me.

      Heck, it changed with the yellow castle... I'm also fairly certain somewhere some kid's first LEGO MOC was a gun...

      I wonder what they would have thought if they knew that in 40 years time they would be manufacturing official weapon parts, endorsing things like star wars...

      Ah, the good ol' days. *sniff* - Funny that they mention the U.N. though.

      its right. Nowadays, lego goes pew-pew-pew.

      Still i don't think there ever will be a 'Military' Lego theme.

      I don't know... that giant steampunk turkey bot looks like it's about to wreck that kid's face.

      I don't see the point in everything needing to be militarised (is that a word?) these days. All the best sets do without, they should be used as an example

      Personally, I miss the wooden-duck-on-a-string. LEGO has been going downhill ever since.

      Lego actually started off making weapons with the release of the Yo-Yo in 1932. We were screwed from the start.

      It seems to me that a wooden duck at the end of a string wouldn't take too long to be weaponized in the right circumstances, i.e. when the number of children is greater than the number of ducks.

      I never knew Samsonite made Lego toys. Apparently they did, for quite a few years. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego_timeline#1960s

      The agreement was terminated in the USA in 1972, although Canadian distribution would continue through 1986. LEGO formed its own USA subsidiary in 1973, and added USA manufacturing two years later.
