This was originally going to be about the Galidor Easter egg. I’m talking about this guy from Ninjago City(which I didn’t get but I wanted this figure):
Look, Galidor would have been a great theme were it just an action figure theme. However, as a LEGO theme, it’s not hard to seen why it’s considered the biggest failure among LEGO fans, and even by Mark Stafford. However, I do find it really cool that this minifigure torso actually had the easter egg. It’s the reason why I ordered one off of Bricklink.
However, I decided to have this topic be about LEGO Easter Eggs in general, be it a reference to another theme, another franchise, a person, etc.
Personally, I thought this was a nice touch on the SC Ferrari 312 T4:
Gilles Villeneuve was a renowned Formua One driver who actually drove a 312 T4. Tragically, he was killed in a crash in 1982, at the age of 32. I feel that whoever designed this set likely chose his 312 T4 as a tribute. They didn’t have to choose his car, but they did. It’s a small but meaningful tribute.
