Hope you’re having a great Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re a hopeless romantic or think that the 14th of February is a load of commercially-driven rubbish, we can at least agree on one thing – that LEGO is worthy of our love.
To commemorate this sappy holiday, I’ve put together 14 photographs featuring some of my favourite LEGO couples. Be warned, if romance and mushy sentimental readings gross you out, you might want to look away.
1) Disco Guy and Girl
Disco Guy and Girl’s love is always groovy. They know how to party and are always trying to outdo each other on the dancefloor.
2) Lifeguard Guy and Girl
It all began on a hot summer day at the beach, Lifeguard Guy couldn’t get his eyes off of his new partner, Lifeguard Girl. He is so in love with Lifeguard Girl that time seems to slow down whenever she crosses his vision.
3) Mime and Spooky Girl
To the Mime and Spooky Girl, love doesn’t come in 50 shades of grey – it’s always been black and white to them.
4) Clockwork Robot and Lady Robot
Can machines fall in love? Clockwork Robot and Lady Robot say yes. Although they often wind each other up, they always seem to be able to laugh it off.
5) Grandpa and Grandma
I love seeing old couples still in love. Nothing warms my heart more than the sight of an elderly couple holding hands.
6) Cavewoman and Caveman
The Caveman and Cavewoman has a love that endures the ages. Really, their relationship outlasted the dinosaurs. Don’t let his gruff exterior fool you, the Caveman is quite the romantic. He knows that to impress your date, you’re going to need a sweet ride.
7) Rocker and Rocker Girl
Want a surefire way to impress the ladies? Pick up a guitar and serenade her as best you can. If that doesn’t work, you can always resort to melting her face (and heart) by ripping into a 7 minute guitar solo.
8) Ocean King and Marsha, Queen of the Mermaids
There’s nothing fishy about love – every Ocean King needs an Ocean Queen. Despite their busy schedule ruling over the seas, they still find time to partake in each other’s company – something all couples should strive to do.
9) Cyclops and Lady Cyclops
Do you believe in love at first sight? The Cyclops sure does. The key to catching Lady Cyclops’ eye is to impress her with his hunting and culinary skills. The key to catching a Cyclops’ eye is much easier – just bat your eyelid and watch him swoon.
10) Marge and Homer Simpson
Hollywood’s most stable couple, Marge and Homer Simpson set the gold standard for domestic longevity. Remember kids, you can be the dullest tool in the shed but if you love your wife with all your heart, all will be good.
11) Benny and Intergalactic Girl
Benny and Intergalactic Girl are star-crossed lovers. Despite being a lot older than Intergalactic Girl, their relationship is as strong as Benny’s desire to construct the perfect Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!!!
12) Librarian and Computer Geek
Are you shy and often find the opposite sex intimidating? Wallflowers can fall in love too. Sometimes, all you need to do is lift your eyes up from your computer or book to find your perfect match.
13) Bumblebee Girl and Bunny Suit Guy
Some people say that finding true love is as hard as finding rare Minifigures. Bumblebee Girl and Bunny Suit Guy got lucky and found each other.
14) Emmet and Wyldstyle
I hope you find your “special” this year.
Happy Valentine’s Day <3
