PodBrix iPod-using Lego mini figure debuts

pic PodBrix is a custom designed Lego mini figure inspired by Apple’s silhouette iPod ad campaign. “The ‘1K Brix’ PodBrix Minifig is a limited numbered edition of 300 units. Hand created by artist Tomi, each figure stands just 1.75-inches tall. Included is a minimalist card backdrop for displaying your figure. The reverse of the backdrop displays the limited edition unit number and is signed by Tomi. Keep in mind that each figure is a unique mini work of art. This is not a toy and can certainly be damaged if not handled with care.” The PodBrix is priced at $16.99.

Crass commercialization targeted towards shallow, easily manipulated people who identify their lives only through product branding and who NEVER should’ve been given a credit card to begin with…

Heck of a scam, er, I mean scheme…hope they clear a million in their first week.  They’ll need after Apple’s and Lego’s legal staff get through with them.

Not for me.

I’d rather spend my money on a T-shirt with an image of the touchwheel rather than this junk.

Dang—those did go fast. Clearly there is a market out there somewhere.

Since they are out of stock on the site, does anyone want to sell one to “shallow, easily manipulated” me? Honestly! I’d really like one!

Looking at the bigger picture, in two days on this site, you get a pretty good idea as to how powerful a community iPodLounge is becoming. Look at this item, as well as response to Helix’s aluminum iPod Shuffle case.

Where else can you test drive a product or idea and get almost automatic input from a target audience for free? The potential for first-mover advantage is enormous through this community! I love it!
