Q is for...

The Brick Encyclopedia is entering the home stretch -- meaning the tiny wordsmiths who run this place have begun to slow down, nobody likes to put themselves out of a job. But with promises of cake in the break room and a good word with HR, they're back to cranking out entries.

And so, Q is for...

Quatro -- a short-lived LEGO theme for children one to three years old that lasted only as long as its recommended age range (from 2004 to 2006). Quatro bricks were four times the size of standard bricks.

Quik -- the Nestle rabbit was immortalized as a LEGO in two promotional sets for the chocolate maker. The Trix bunny still hasn't gotten over the slight.

Qa, Misa -- a Japanese builder, who produces beautiful LEGO animals that evoke the style of origami.

Qui-Gon Jinn -- two versions of this Star Wars Jedi exist -- one in flesh tones, the other in Simpsons' yellow. This is the only way that Liam Neeson could ever be captured.
