They took my gay money.

I wish the blue hair was orange. Then I could make a Conan O’Brien figure
Yeah, at first glance I thought it was the usual pompadour mold... but I don't think I've seen that shape in Lego before.
Definitely perfect for Coco!
Yeah but is there a head piece that's pale enough with beady eyes and a puppet-like smile?
You’re also going to have to put a extra brick between his legs and upper body because Coco is a freakish dude.
There’s a good one in 75965.

Best part is that you're not even wrong, tommy riddle with some bug orange hair would totally be Conan.
Obviously we need conan to dye his hair blue for accuracy
You know, I think he's the type of person to do it, if he gets enough tweets asking for it...
I think this is the only issue with this set. I want all of those hair options in every one of those colors. Why should Uhuru hair only be purple or Coco hair blue? We also need pink Coco and green Uhuru, etc.
Completely agree. Would upvote you 10X if I could.
Or Rick Astley
I’m never gonna glue you up,
Never gonna tear you down,
Never gonna make an illegal, construction…
Them people that collect monochromes gonna be real happy whether they are gay or not. I for one am not happy coz im broke af
Hope you do well!
Is it already out?
Out and proud.
Gave me a good chuckle
Take an upvote and GTFO.
They came out of the storage closet this morning
Why 18+? Looks easy to me.
It’s meant to be a display set with limited playability, that’s why
As a kid I would have committed crimes to have all those minifigures.
Cause it’s marketed toward adults
Not many kids are gonna be interested in a primarily display Lego set
Edit: And holy shit this comment reads super aggressively I’m sorry that was not my intention but I’m too tired to change it good night
Yeah the 18+ is mostly just a "has no play features" badge
My younger kids have no idea WTF gay pride is. I tried to explain it and they were just confused about why people would care.
They do, however, *love* rainbows and want this set.
I once tried to explain to my 4 year old why most children have a mom and a dad and the one kid in her daycare has two moms. Stopped pretty quickly because it was just not an issue for her. The only thing that seemed odd to her was when she first met a kid that was raised by a single parent - which was completely normal to me in her age. How things change in one generation.
Someone linked me the set last night and I bought one because I thought it looked cool with the monochrome figures. I didn’t even realize what month it was until after.
Well if you haven't raised them with any explicit or implicit biases against LGBT people then of course they don't understand why pride is necessary. Well done!
I notice this about my 9 and 12 year old... they are so chill about these issues. Its lovely.
I’m confused, how could your answer be read as aggressive? The way I see it you answer the question very clearly? I don’t read any aggression in it. It’s just clear and to the point (as an answer should be)
i assumed this was satire but I may be the only one
How do you get gay money?
Dunk it in glitter and keep it in a leather wallet
Do you have to be gay to get and use gay money. It sounds like more fun than my stupid straight money.
Not gay. Use gay money all the time. I get mine at the gATM.
GayTM? Nope that is Gay Trade Mark.
I hate straight money, I toss it in my bill fold and yell "get bent!" as I stow it away. Bankers tend to give me disapproving looks.
I only have a latex wallet
Go to a country that has multi-coloured money, Canada for instance.
blue, violet, green, red and brown are the bills here.
What, do you live in a fucking Monopoly Box? Get outta here with that fake gay money! Real money is GREEN!
Better put the "/s" here... never know these days. Gay haters and touchy guys alike may be offended.
Real money is silver and gold, not that fiat junk.
That said, I'll happily trade some of my shiny for the set.
I earn it.
All of my bills are facing ass to mouth, does that count?
Apparently you can steal it.
That is a well-kept secret of ~the gay agenda~
You take money and exchange it obviously
I know people want to whine, but this is super cool
I kind of want it for a MOC I'm working on as mannequins
I've been thinking about collecting monochrome minifigs- this set would be a hell of a jumpstart for it.
Imagine all the monocolor fig collectors who spent a bunch of time and money building their collections and then this comes out.
Most of them won't be bothered by it. Nothing there is really hard to come by, except some of the hair pieces.
A few will scream bloody murder, but if it wasn't this, they'd be screaming about something else.
Monochrome collectors aren't like the kids at r/starwarslego so I highly doubt any of them are feeling much aside from joy that others can get in on the fun easier.
As a longtime Magic the Gathering player I can tell you 100% that when my old cards get reprinted I spread that info to all my friends. Cabal Coffers in Modern Horizons 2 is absolutely gonna drop my copies below $100 and I don't mind. Even when I bought cards climbing towards my limit for a single ($80) and they get a reprint announcement for the next release I don't get all butt hurt. If I hum and haw and settle that I truly value a thing enough to hand over dollars that feeling isn't suddenly erased if I discover that it has become more affordable down the road. Anyone who feels that way about the collectibles they have is displaying some giant red flags.
If you want to collect something or begin looking into after market prices then you are better off if you put this front and foremost in your mind. Things have no value until someone decides to hand over cold hard cash or someone rejects cold hard cash. What you paid is absolutely not important, rather what is important is what you are willing to exchange it for. Countless estate sales show that if the collection isn't in the hands of someone who values it then it goes away for peanuts to the relief of the person who had to sell it off.
These are wise words.
When the feck did Cabal Coffers get above $30, and can I ship out my slightly damage copy for some of that!
Scroll down, buy list price is $60 usd so that is what shops are giving out. For sale lists are a bit further down. Some light plays as low as 70ish but there are heavy play listings that are 80+ so the card is sought no matter the condition. Just search your city along with MtG and find a group, the facebook generally has a ton of people posting stuff for sale and requests for specific cards. That is where someone will be willing to give you say 10% less than the store sells it for which is generally about %15 more than the store would give you for it. Both parties get a better deal that way.
If your not playing with them maybe check for a camera app and scan your cards. Those silly cards went all sixes and nines this last 18 months!
What I'm most impressed by with this reply is confirmation that someone on the planet can afford both Lego and MTG. Until now, I didn't realize that individual existed. ;)
It's a hard life balancing cardboard crack and plastic crack
As a monofig collector, I am just proud that Lego has finally embraced monofigs!
they'll love the extra options in rarer colours
It honestly has a really good number of uses.
Am I allowed to whine about box pics? Cause box pics are really annoying
Ok, why do I want this set. Not for the pride month aspect, but rather the fact that it has monochrome figs that would look great for things.
You should check out the world of monofigs! There are currently 42 total possible colors
I didn't just purchase a few of them.
Set of 36 monofigs for only $495 (without hair)!
That guys figures are on the high side. You should be able to get a complete set for that price
I just googled monofigs... But I will need to get a whole lot more than a complete set before I pay that much.... That might just be me, though :-)
They defintely aren't a cheap part of the lego hobby, but they're also one of the more unique parts of the hobby
I'm just not that unique ;-)
WHAT?! When did this happen?
Most of them are custom figures put together from multiple other minifigures and can't be found whole from Lego
That's why I want it as well. I would buy it, open the box, build the figures, and nothing else, LOL
What does gay money look like and what is the exchange rate?
Three dollar bill.
Normal monetary exchange. You can pick it up at the gATM.
That’s the one with Eleanor Roosevelt on it, yeah?
Yup - that is the one!
7 straight dollars, sir
Well the USD $2 bill has a guy who wore a wig. Does that count as one of the letters?
Roughly the same as the ratio of Schrute Bucks to Stanley Nickels.
Same as the ratio of unicorns to leprechauns.
Joke's on them, that fiat is going down, that set is forever!
They got yellow too, so if I buy like 30 of this, I can build a Lego nudist camp!
The yellow spaceman is the real badass; he just tattoos the logo on his chest and goes out there naked
Still waiting for mine to arrive. My first pride month out and my first solo Lego purchase!!
It's all uphill from here
If this is about inclusion, WHY IS THERE SO MANY STRAIGHT PIECES????
Great, now I imagined Lego but wobbly
Took my straight money, too. It's like they don't care who we are or something ;)
Listen, the only color that matters to most corporations is green.
Super straight, love rainbows, definitely picking up this set!
superstraight or super [adjective] straight?
[He's superstraight, superstraight, yeah he's superstraight](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2t4tEOqido)
My dad bought this for me today :) when I came out 14 years ago it was really rough for him, so it means a lot that he would buy this to commemorate me and pride!
It’s great to hear he’s come around, even if it was a difficult path for each of you in your own ways.
Sometimes it’s “little” gifts like him giving it to you that speak particularly loudly. Perhaps, in part, because it brings what had been difficult down to a simple level that itself gives a physicalized symbol of your bond.
Not even two hours after this was posted a comment was removed for “racist remarks”
Good shit but be prepared for an uphill battle op
I mean I've only seen 1 removed comment so far? And majority seems positive so thats good
Yeah I guess I predicted wrong, thankfully
Comment threads on these kinds of posts are getting better and better every year
Yeeeah- which is really nice honestly. Gives me hope
Everyone is awesoooome!
Everyone is cool in this new color scheme!
They would've taken my gay money as well, but I worry I wouldn't be able to build/display this set around the people I live with..
I'll definitely have to get it before it gets discontinued and the price skyrockets though.
Just letting you know, if you buy it from lego’s website, it’ll ship in a plain brown box. You could just keep it in there until you have a better living situation. (I’m in the same boat)
That's great to know, thank you. Sorry to hear you're in the same boat, I hope things improves for you soon.
Oh, please buy it and save it for when your situation is rainbow-safe. Throw away the box and it's just colored bricks in a bag. Something to look forward to, in better times.
I'll definitely get it whenever it's possible for me, money-wise. I really don't want to miss out on this set like so many other favorites I wasn't able to get. At least this favorite is only $35 and not triple digit territory.
I just wish I didn't have to hide it, y'know..
I’m sorry for needing to hide this aspect of who you are that, tbh, should be so innocuous that no one would care either way. (I hope I’m expressing it how I’m intending.).
Luckily, it does seem that the up and coming generations aren’t so screwed up over it. It doesn’t help your situation like I wish it could, I know.
Hang in there. Try not to rob yourself between now and when you feel the time is right. Not about the set but in general.
About the set itself, let me echo another person and suggest that you buy it when you have the funds. Don’t wait. If it feels wiser to chuck the box then do that. Instructions should be online so you can probably toss them, too. Bricks in bags are just that (I hope… I can imagine it not being so).
I feel we can make an exception for Lego
I hope you can move around the studs the monofigs are connected to. I think a "flying V" formation would be awesome.
Got me twice and the giant Harry Potter Mini?figs.
Wait, is this sold in stores? I just placed orders online.
They took my straight money too!
I am straight and still bought this mainly for the blue which will for me represent my Autism. I’m so happy for everyone in the LGBT community to get this set and for people outside of that community who feel out of place heck this is great for everyone just for those figures alone 🤤
they took my trans money too :)
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY GAY MONEY
All for the message behind it, but is it insensitive to be ALL IN mostly for the hair peices?
A set that’s just 11 solid color mini figures? Probably going to be great for MOCs
Price per piece is around 0.10 (US), so it's also a great set to pick up just for primary color pieces.
….that is the average price per piece for Lego sets. It is neither particularly good nor particularly bad.
Put simply: I want
No indigo fig my only disappointment with this set
You can make amogus now tho
And now the song is stuck in my head lol
I don't care if it's a corporation pandering this set is cool as hell and I want it
It’s better than other companies changing their logo/pfp to a rainbow. I think this is a great way for Lego to celebrate pride month.
i want it just for the one colored shit, and the hairs look 🤕
I want some gay money. Sounds fabulous
Gays have their own currency? What's the exchange rate, I want to add some to my coin collection!
They took my (ally) straight money too.
Lego gets so much of my gay money, I'm stupid. I go to buy this online, but I'm 1 cent under the free shipping minimum, and fucking paying 7 bucks for shipping. I decide to go to the lego store after work. Somehow, I walk out with this set *and* Fawkes. I'm such a sucker.
I really want this set but I haven’t come out to my parents and I know they’re very anti lgbt what do I do?
Tell them who you are.
I notice that the blue has a boyish haircut and the pink has a girly haircut
All haircuts are for everyone!
I hope Lego puts their money where their mouth is and actually release this in anti-LGBT countries. If not, this is just pandering.
Does it seem like this set will sell out fast or be discontinued quickly? My wife really wants this for her bookshelf, but wasn't sure about grabbing it right away.
They've stated that this isn't a limited edition set or anything like that. It may sell out quickly on its first run but they plan on having it for sale for a good long time, so it will come back into stock.
Oh, that's good to know. Thanks.
Got my straight money too, but damn it’s a good product for all races, creeds, colors, and genders.
Meanwhile in Poland:
Conservative media: lEgO iS tUrNiNg kIdS gAy!
Wait until Poland finds out Crayola sells a rainbow crayon set.
While I absolutely support the message, this set feels so weird to me considering how abstract it is compared to what they usually do.
And that’s all it’s about: money. Notice none of these woke companies do this sort of virtue signaling in predominantly Muslim countries.
Out of all companies out there lego is probably one of the best brands. They're already using 100% renewable energy for one. There's worse companies to go after
Totally right. And they do great charity work with kids. The designer wrote beautifully about why he designed it https://www.lego.com/en-gb/page/why-i-designed-everyone-is-awesome
They also wanted to start this year to include paper bags for the pieces instead of plastic, however half the year is over and we still don't see them in any released set.
They are for years now researching to make bricks from non plastic but being as dureable and useable as plastic, sadly either too brittle or too soft so far. But they released a test set of all biological degradeable plant pieces (that are always a little more soft than normal bricks) and I do not know if they even produce all plant pieces since then from this material.
So they are definitely working atleast on being better for the ecosystem.
Swing and a miss there, bud
You felt the need to single out Muslim countries, as if Christian / Catholic countries are the beacon of acceptance.
Really? Plenty of African Christian nations where that is the case
You're absolutely right.
Russia main religion: Orthodox Christianity: [https://www.hrw.org/report/2018/12/11/no-support/russias-gay-propaganda-law-imperils-lgbt-youth](https://www.hrw.org/report/2018/12/11/no-support/russias-gay-propaganda-law-imperils-lgbt-youth)
One of China's main 4 religions: Christianity: [https://www.hrw.org/report/2017/11/15/have-you-considered-your-parents-happiness/conversion-therapy-against-lgbt-people](https://www.hrw.org/report/2017/11/15/have-you-considered-your-parents-happiness/conversion-therapy-against-lgbt-people)
Every now and then, a news article how in USA or UK gay people are treated by businesses.
But sure, it's all roses on Christian countries.
While I support the general notion, China is not at all a good example of a Christian country. They are officially atheist and have taken official government actions against Buddhists, Christians, Muslims and other religious groups. This includes forcible destruction of places of worship and threats + violence against religious leaders.
Poland, however, is currently a very prominent anti-LGBT country, and they are certainly very Christian.
“One of chinas main 4 religions” bud. Their main is Buddhism. How many popular religions are there? That’s like saying blue is one of the USA’s main 3 primary colors.
> the government does officially recognize five religions: Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Catholicism, and Protestantism
This is what I mean. And I should have written “five” instead of “four”.
Did you know your “Muslim countries” also have other religions? Mind blowing.
Hey no all these companies are definitely doing it for completely work reasons /s
I just think it looks neat so I want to get it
Wait why black brown cyan pink and white
Black and brown are for persons of color and lightblue whitr and pink are for trans people
Ahh fucking nice legos
I hope this doesn’t get locked
bought 2 last night, going to the store to get a third tomorrow. one for my collection, and 1 for each of my kids :)
Fucking green people
they should have made the orange head more orange so that i can make a trump lego minifig
How much gay money did it take, they can have all my gay money
I am not gay but I want it
Is this a limited edition set or will it be available all year?
Staff said general release
This is so cool! I will be buying one of these
I just ordered this, too. I'm going to try to mod it so a row of monofigs can fit the height (2.5") and depth (4 studs) of my minifig display case. Such a cool, unexpected release.
That set's so gay!
Why is this an 18+ set?
Lego used 18+ for all sets with no play features, that are primarily designed as display items.
Words cannot describe how badly I want this set.
They took mine too!
I wonder if LEGO decides to donate any of the profits from this to LGBTQ+ causes.
Not only do I love this for the gay factor, but I'm also a huge NY Mets fan, and I can swap the hair and torsos between orange and blue to make my own minifig fans for good luck charms during games.
Not to mention it gives me an excuse to buy more lego 😁
Lego is 't gay. But 35 bucks is 35 bucks.
Just bought it, it looks amazing, can't wait to get it
Ohh its not crazy expensive. Ordering for my classroom.
I saw this!! It’s seriously so cool! “Everyone is awesome, everyone is cool when they’re part of a team 🎶”
Love how the lego is 18+
They had to. All those minifigs are naked.
Lego uses the "18+" theme for sets that are marketed toward adults. These sets are more likely to be displayed rather than sets with play features they include in sets marketed toward kids. It's not an age restriction or commentary on the content of the set.
I commented about it as a simple joke
I commented an explanation of the real reason it's an 18+ set for those who didn't know you were joking.
Well I mean kids don’t care about sexualities lol
Everyone is awesome! If you are over 18 it's saying.
