LEGO set 60335, a “Practice Station” for the LEGO Metropolis line, just isn’t the primary within the firm’s historical past to ship with some sort of poop. It’s, nonetheless, the primary to ship with an infinite pile of human shit that’s clogging up a bathroom.
The Practice Station truly consists of three separate elements: the station itself, a bus and a small orange truck that’s towing a trailer. The station and bus are completely fantastic and with out incident, each shining examples of LEGO’s utopian beliefs of public transport and trendy, accessible structure.
The truck, nonetheless, is towing one thing. A porta-potty. And it doesn’t matter how utopian the remainder of LEGO’s design beliefs are, a porta-potty is a porta-potty, so within the pursuits of realism this one is stuffed with human shit. Check out this a part of the instruction guide, which has blown up after being shared by Louie Mantia, Jr.:
Now, like I mentioned, this isn’t the primary time LEGO has put poop in its units! This specific piece, first launched in 2019 and formally often known as “53119: Plate Spherical 1 x 1 Swirled Prime”, has been most steadily used as two issues: the highest half of a cupcake with chocolate icing, and as animal poop (maybe most famously in a New York Metropolis garbage can). I’ve no considerations about both of these.
Right here, although, I’ve considerations. Firstly, why? Why is he dragging this round? Why couldn’t the man—included as a result of he’s doing upkeep work on the constructing—simply use the prepare station, certainly it has a rest room? It looks like somebody at LEGO simply actually wished to make a porta-potty with poop in it, as a result of they thought it was humorous, and if that’s the case, OK, I get it, as a result of it’s humorous.
Secondly, the concept this poor minifig is having to lug round a porta-potty with an enormous ol’ human turd sloshing round in it makes me really feel worse for him than I’ve ever felt for a minifig’s job in my life, and that’s saying one thing contemplating hundreds have been designed purely to be killed in battle.
Thirdly, the dimensions of all the things is manner off, and it’s gross. That occurs so much in LEGO, I do know, however this state of affairs is de facto making me give it some thought. That shit fills the bathroom! Think about a shit that fills your total bathroom bowl! An enormous chocolate cupcake is an effective factor. A human turd that reaches as much as your kneecaps just isn’t.
Helpfully, Mantia didn’t simply share the booklet (this set solely just lately launched and has already offered out, as a result of that’s what occurs to good LEGO units in 2022), however took some video of him…assembling the bathroom.
If that is the course the corporate is headed, I can’t wait to show this right into a collection with additional blogs like “New York Subway LEGO Set Is Lined In Piss”.
