How LEGO Minifigs Are Made

In now that would make an awesome middle school field trip news (we went to a waste water treatment plant), this is a video from inside a LEGO factory detailing how minifigs are made, at rates up to 8,000 minifigs/hour. Fascinating. Of course the short answer of how LEGO minifigs are made is that they aren’t — they come unassembled and YOU have to make them yourself. LOLOL! God I’m so clever. “Sharp as a pillow.” Mom! “Speaking of — go make your bed.” No, I’m going to get back in it.
