Lego Insurrection Kit

FBI Confiscates Rioter's 'Fully Constructed U.S. Capitol Lego Set'

The U.S. Capitol Lego set is part of the company's high end "Architecture" line which recreates famous landmarks. It retails for more than $250 and, according to the Lego website, it has retired the set. The U.S. Capitol set is detailed and complicated for a Lego set, but it's not clear it's to-scale and does not include the kind of detail a person would need to plan an insurrection.

    I'm a bit worried. I have Flatiron Building and Lincoln Memorial sets. Luckily still in their boxes. I think someone should send 21028 and 21027 to Leonard Cohen, though.

    There are no interior details except inaccurate but playful representations of statuary under the dome. That's it.

    This is sort of like the CERN experiment where we disrupted the timeline.

    There's no way to know whether or not the insurrection succeeded and what's left of the Congress and Senate is a mix of CGI deep fakes and body doubles.

    Since there is know way to know but it only takes finite resources to pull that off, and since there would be incredible power in decapitating the state that way, we pretty much have to assume it succeeded and all that remains is deep fakes and body doubles.

    Perhaps it will turn out to be an improvement.
