Man-building LEGO sets

I tried man-building my Obi-wan's interceptor last night because I figured it would be to quick of a build. Definitely a way to make that 15 minute build 2 hours more enjoyable.

(Man building means you don't need the instructions because you are a man and have pictures.)

    I love trying to reverse engineer nice stuff I see online. Building from pictures is a nice challenge. I've never thought to try it with a retail set. Might have to give it a go.

    Real men don't need pictures.

    I debated putting a disclaimer to ward of such evil.

    Another valid point. I will remove a corner from my man card.

    I honestly thought you meant there were Lego bricks programmed to build a man figure. Like the Mindstorms robot picking up Lego pieces and slowly assembling a giant minifigure

    Sorry to burst your 'man' bubble, but this is exactly how my 3-4 year old insists on building however many times Dad yells at him to "Follow the instructions!!!"

    It was a joke. It's a running joke (at least with most people I've interacted with) that men don't need instructions. The recent geico commercial also mocks this with Tarzan refusing to ask for instructions. But sorry to 'burst' your bubble.

    How do you know if you got it 'right'?

    I ask it who it plans to vote for in the upcoming election.
