At first I was highly skeptical of these Lego recreations of famous battles but I am actually quite impressed by the quality! Has anyone here seen these before?

Yeah they're good, I posted some of them here a few months ago, although I doubt I was the first.

I don't like them. They trivialise the battles. Verdun specially, it's like making a lego of Dachau.

And didn't the original founder of Lego say the company would always maintain a veto on marketing toys that would depict weapons and violence?

Then in that case you also must have a problem with all of those toy soldiers and diorama sets that were so popular in the 50’s and 60’s.
