  • Lego Update
Legofy the characters and some of the items.
It would probably be a lot of work to make Legofied versions one or two of the more notable taunts and Meet the Teams, but funny. (I'm thinking "Meet the Sniper" with a Legofied Sniper would be a natural.) (Or a stop action "Meet the Heavy" with actual Legos)
  • 90% Gib odds with Lego gibs when Lego cosmetics are equipped.
