    I saw a bunch of light bluish boat mast rigging #47996 in 2000431. I guess the BrickLink price for this part will be going down. ;)

    Ive seen similar type sets on LEGO Education in the past. So is LEGO doing this for LEGO education or just for those orgs that need a lot of parts?

    I meant the expansive part for #10179.

    I believe these are intended to be used for team-building exercises in the workplace.

    ^ Wow, I did not even know this existed: http://www.seriousplay.com/

    I just noticed that the only comment on the product's [email protected] page says the contents do not match the picture. Also the BL inventory doesn't include the boat rigging. Strange.

    ^ Although I'm not sure the person who left the comment is quite the intended audience, or really knew what they were buying for $750+ !!

    seems like if the boat rigging is there, than it should be able to be purchased from Bricks & Pieces over the phone. If BLing a Falcon is your goal might be worth a call to find out.

    ^ Nuts, for $750, I'd expect more... That is way expensive... Blah...

    The bricklink inventory (and indeed the download on brickset) certainly doesn't match what's in that picture. Good value if there are 6x LBG masts, otherwise it looks very pricey!

    I always get the impression that the Lego education stuff is often just an amalgam of their "bin ends" - consisting of what's left of parts they are EOLing and taking out of current production, so it could change over time and i could see how this is just a picture of what the equivalent set would have looked like in 2009/10

    I just looked some more of these up - set #2000416 duck building kit is an awesome polybag!

    ^I have been looking to get some of those. The duck building group session is really fun, got to do it doing my Mindstorms training session. Probably should just order the pieces because I haven't seen it available anywhere.

    That's just I don't even... what is the point of that?

    Anyway, obviously what is being paid for with serious play is the specific curriculum, not the pieces. In my experience companies are not at all price-sensitive about consulting, team-building, all that jazz, they just throw money at anything that looks semi-credible to give them an "innovation edge." It's probably a great racket being a certified instructor or whatever for this program.

    You give a room of people these 6 bricks and tell them to build a duck. No 2 ducks will be the same, yet they all look like ducks. It's actually very cool.

    Just to be clear: some weeks back I contacted the person who did the inventory on BL and they confirmed that there are not any LBG masts in the set. The photo does not match the product.

    You have to wonder if the upside-down one was built by an AFOL.

    Yup, that is exactly the kind of thing I'm talking about. That guy probably makes bank by handing out six LEGO pieces to each person and spouting cliches like "You are unique." Nice work if you can get it.

    @margot Wonder how they came up with that exercise? :) Maybe it's a reference to the wooden Lego duck toy from back in the day?

    @binaryeye I'm guessing it was built by someone who has never seen Lego in their life.

    The class I took was for teachers to teach them how to use Lego Mindstorms because the school has it for the kiddos. The sad thing was that the teachers all bailed by noon and only the parents and some college students hung in for the very long day...
    They start out with the duck exercise and another Lego build exercise to into everyone to Lego and kind of break the ice, because you do spend the day working as teams and at the end of the day you do a big project together.
