50 Years ago this week, the patent for the modern Lego brick was issued. Lego has been the premier construction toy ever since, adding new sets, themes and licenses every year. Remarkably, bricks from sets made 50 years ago, in 1958, are compatible with sets released this year. In 2008, Lego premiers it’s newest licensed set, based on the Indiana Jones movies.

We will have full coverage of Lego’s 2008 offerings when our coverage of the 2008 American International Toy Fair begins on February 17th.

Figures and More would like to congratulate Lego on their 50th Anniversary.
