** LEGO Vs Megablox shorts on YouTube are not uncommon. Both are similar in design and use, and LEGO did sue Megablock in the past.

* ArchivePanic; Lego has been around since '''1932''' and has produced an innumerable amount of brick sets since 1949 and is showing no signs of stopping. If you want to be a Lego collector, be certain that you have cash to burn.

Added DiffLines:

** Rubberbands (for sets like the Bohrok and the many, many X-Wing sets) suffer a similar fate, but unlike stickers, they're fairly easy to replace.
** Studs. Their inherently tiny size makes them hard to keep a grip on and very, ''very'' easy to misplace.

%%*** And even ''that'' CUUSOO (or should we say now, Lego Ideas) project came with its own slew of UnfortunateImplications, along with the headline-making female scientist figure from LEGOMinifigures.

* BaseBreaker: Believe it or not, the beloved minifigures. There are plenty of fans who feel that they detract from the built models and are only used to sell sets. They're not completely off, though.

** Many of the LEGO lines aimed directly toward young girls would tend to have these. Many have placed focus on domestic "feminine" activities, such as a resort set with focus on leisure activities, as well as a LEGO jewelry-making set. The Toys/LEGOFriends, the most recent attempt at marketing toward girls, has had some of the most criticism. Unlike the jewelry-making set, it directly advertised its affiliation with LEGO bricks, but the toy figures were modeled more after the idealized feminine image similar to fashion dolls (while the resort LEGO sets still kept the blocky-looking figures). [[http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/15401 This LEGO CUUSOO project]] attempts to offset the problem.

** Many Part of the fun in LEGO is that it's ''supposed'' to be, determinedly, a toy for both boys and girls. So naturally, many of the LEGO lines aimed directly toward young girls would tend to have these. Many have placed focus on domestic "feminine" activities, such as a resort set with focus on leisure activities, as well as a LEGO jewelry-making set.

* MisaimedMarketing: Cleverly averted. The 2016 DC Super Heroes set manage to tie in loosely to ''Film/SuicideSquad'', but avoid any outcry over the subject material by using the comic versions of the Squad instead.
