LEGO turns 50, rapidly realizing own hipness

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the LEGO brick (which I would’ve posted sooner, but I’m still not on my own machine). The famed building-block brand continues to venture into the gaming market (never as quickly as we’d like, as per the long-standing example set by Evil Stevie), and will have a licensed Indiana Jones video game this summer. Looking ahead, this 50th anniversary video has me wondering if a James Bond LEGO game might be a good idea for 2009. Here’s to 50 more years, and a closer working relationship between LEGO and the gamers who love it/them/her.
