    Although I agree with Trump’s politics in most spheres, I don’t approve of everything he does, and I believe he has a tendency to react without thinking occasionally. More on topic, I think this is absolutely hilarious! I would totally buy it were it real!

  2. Elite Guard 01

    With the national embarrisment of donnald trump being sued by a porn star and the investigations into his potentially treasonous election, and how sharply dividede this country is right now over his presidency, this seems a bit culturally insensitive. And with a president who is obsessed with him self do we really need Lego to be stroking his ego? I really hope this is an april fools joke! Also I really don’t understand why Brick Heads are so popular. Seems like a really stupid fad to me, which makes no sense.

    Lol good April fools trump and Putin the way things r going between us ( US and Russia) there ain’t gonna be no Lego’s worth nothing after they start bombing plastics melts too lol I doubt survivors will interested in Lego products I think food and drinkable water will be lot more valuable

  4. The Anonymous Hutt

    I love this! And I like Trump! xD

    Also, that last paragraph is pure gold. I’m glad I read to the end!

    Ouch ? So wrong it hurts, ain’t gonna happen, LEGO education don’t wanna be associated with political propaganda. We care for the children and learning ❤️

    Great idea! I especially like how it can be used to teach children about politics and friendship. It’s so great we have a President who is finally working to improve relations with Russia instead of those sad saps who treated Putin like a secret dictator!

    That being said, the hair’s all wrong for Trump, and he needs a cellphone or magazine with his face on it to really help know who it is. I hate to buy incomplete sets where you’re required to dip into your own collection to complete it.

    I hope they sell them separately as well since I have no need for a Putin, even the shirtless version. If they are a required pair, I guess I’ll pass on this set and save my funds for Cloud City!!

    I guess I could buy it in conjunction with a GoBrickMe to have parts to build Trump’s rotating cabinet instead of Putin. I would love a “Mooch” figure.

    In the end I think I’ll pass, but I’ll write my local elementary school and demand they get one before they are gone!
