Breaking Bad meth lab Legos sell out online

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (WBIR) -- The toy giant Lego and AMC show Breaking Bad are not affiliated with the Superlab Playset. It comes complete with little drums of toxic chemicals, yellow hazmat suits, and swivel heads with chemical burns.  And there's a waiting list.

"I hope people see it as really amplified fan art. I'm a Lego fan. I'm a giant Breaking Bad fan, and I thought it would be cool to see if I could do it," Citizen Brick founder Joe Trupia told 11Alive's Julie Wolfe. His Chicago-based company has been selling customized Legos online for two years.

The Superlab Playset comes with "Chemical Enthusiast", a figure with an obvious resemblance to Breaking Bad protagonist Walter White. The AMC show follows former chemistry teacher Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) as he chooses to enter the world of drugs and crime by making methamphetamines. The Emmy award-winning show is in its final season.

"The beauty about Legos is that you can make anything, configure anything you want. There's nothing stopping anyone from buying Legos at the toy store and concocting something much more objectionable than I would make," he said.
