Pleygo is Netflix for our favorite building brick

Good buddy, +Mark Heckler shared this one with me as he knows of my love for LEGO.

From Gizmag:
“Netflix users will find Pleygo’s system very familiar. More than merely shipping out chosen Lego sets, it also requires subscribers to rank several selections in a queue to determine which sets they receive. Pleygo offers three monthly subscription plans: a US$15 Fan one for small and medium-sized sets, a $25 Super Fan one that adds some large sets, and a $39 Mega Fan subscription that includes the biggest sets the company offers. Browsing the website, it looks like the sets range in size from the simple 31-piece Duplo Number Train to the massive 3,803-piece Death Star from Star Wars.”

I’m not too sure about this business model. Have to say, part of the fun for me is collecting those bricks to build my own bigger and better MOCs, so not sure I love this idea. Do believe I would rather take the money to OWN my own bricks. Sound off in the comments and let me know your thoughts. If nothing else, it’s a great conversation piece.
