I thought Lego was much cooler when you just got random pieces and made something of your own design...rather than a "kit" with instructions on how to make one thing in particular!
Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!
I think both can work.
I'd be a sucker to buy and build ships from pop culture. However, it wouldn't be long before I took them apart and built my own creations. No law says you have to stick to the original design once you get all those cool custom pieces.
