I to own both Lego and Megablocks sets. Megablocks figures are harder to put together, with the joints, and the instructions are hard to read, taking much longer than Lego. Lego’s downfall is mainly in the more expensive price, but for my money, it’s worth it.
Some of you may comment “LEGO is best and all other brands are evil rip-offs that should be burned!” – but hear me through before throwing bricks at me, and perhaps you will gain a different perspective. I own both LEGO and Mega Bloks sets and have fairly extensive experience with both. In addition I’m one of those people who are not afraid to mix the two brands for an extended building experience. As this is a LEGO vs. Mega Bloks post, I will compare the two brands in various categories so you might gain a better understanding of the similarities and differences.
