No. As Lego.

THE PLURAL IS THE SAME AS THE SINGULAR.

I think you're wrong. Everyone I know calls them Legos in the plural.

Yeah, it's legos. Saying I have ten lego is just weird, makes it sound like legos is a type of animal.

you wouldn't say "I have ten lego." You would say "I have ten lego bricks," or "ten pieces of lego."

ITS NOT THAT HARD, PEOPLE.

Grammar Nazis, STAY AWAY FROM LEGOS! How we spelt them when we were just little tykes, just finding out the glory of legos, is how we will ALWAYS spell them. They deserve that kind of respect. So back off!

I edited my first post removing the 's' from Lego when KS posted. I always said Legos as a kid anyways. Everyone I knew called them Legos. There I said it.

actually back in the day LEGO set up a website at legos.com which basically said your a moron it's LEGO, that's our name use it correctly we're forwarding you to our actual site. This is me paraphrasing, I'm sure it was more polite.

Eight year olds love Legos and thirty eight year olds love Legos... and those thirty eight year olds' marital status is questionable.
What does having a relationship have to do with LEGO?

You mean this:

You got it when you went to www.legos.com
You can also click here to go directly to the part of the Wikipedia article where this is discussed.

I don't mind what it's called, but Legos sounds odd to me, and LEGO bricks sounds better.
But it seems a bit too unimportant to hijack a thread for it...


Anyway, LEGO MMO!
Sounds cool, as long as they don't try to implement those Star Wars and Harry Potter LEGO sets, and instead just let you build you're own world. A sort of Multiplayer LEGO Creator game.

I refuse to let a company control my pronunciation of a word.  What next, I can only build things that are in the manuals*?  Screw you LEGO!

Sincerely, that guy who thoroughly enjoys LEGOS.

*Clearly this part is a joke, I recognize that LEGO was founded with free form design in mind.  But I'll still pronounce/spell it how I want.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

By calling it Legos you are giving in to Communisms!

That's the one, thanks Didero. I don't get that message anymore, if I try and go there I get a message saying I probably meant lego.com and they are forwarding it to me.


Anyway now that everyone is well versed on the actual name.. it still doesn't change my opinion that NetDevil will end up screwing it up. Auto Assault has had an amazing four updates since release.  I don't even know how the game would play, I'd imagine it would be similar to Second Life or  The Sims Online.. but for all I know it could be like LEGO Star Wars (without the Star Wars). Either way, I'm going to wait until I learn more about it and then if I do like what I hear I'll wait for a while after release.. I don't like NetDevil after Auto Assault  :-\
