From the Guardian's nice (if short) 10-image photo gallery, the news that LEGO employees get their business cards printed on minifigs. Want. This.
Coolest. Perk. EVER.
Not just any minifig… minifigs modelled after you.
The nerdometre is reading “need”, not “want”.
Do these come in a box of 500?
I was wondering too how many each employee becomes .. and how quickly we will find those on ebay
Fiona Wright looks hot.
The photograph of the production line (Image 2) in that gallery is very cool.
Fiona does indeed look hot.
I wish I could work at Lego.
Very very cool and extremely desirable; but (ah, there’s always a ‘but’) it must be a bit of a bugger carrying a bunch of ’em around in your pocket; to hand out at, for example, a conference?
Just a thought (and perhaps one prompted by sheer envy).
Lego Salvador DalÃ¬ and his lobsterphone.
Why do they employ so many asians?
You know, though, that if you went to a business conference and picked up a couple dozen of these, the bloom would be off the rose pretty quick. Alternatively, imagine someone who gave you one stopping by your cubicle and finding out that you, ah, put their doppelganger in an interesting, if not compromising, position during a dull moment.
Dan Ballau’s got some pretty nifty business cards too. Check it:
Someone less lazy than me should try and figure out how much it would cost to create these yourself…
How does a LEGO employee deal with the complicated business card exchange ritual in Japan with these?
Still, my current business card has only my Name, phone, email and the caption “Generic Badass”. I’m sure I could work that into a minifig somehow rather spectacularly.
