Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics in LEGO

Science fiction writer Isaac Asimov famously devised three laws that all robots should follow:

1: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2: A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3: A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Simon Primordial Greeble created LEGO dioramas representing these laws. The second is illustrated above.

So: there's a dog poop piece. That never appeared in any set that I owned as a kid.

Model this, but only after building a Chevy Malibu:
"I shall not cause harm to any vehicle nor the personal contents thereof, nor through inaction let the personal contents thereof come to harm" It's what I call the Repo Code, kid!

I had a friend write a short story about what would happen if in one robot the laws were accidentally loaded backwards. You got a rather scary robot that preserved itself, took orders as long as these orders did not violate the self preservation, and would not kill people unless its existence depended on it or were ordered to do it. Of course, no one knew the laws were loaded backwards and the robot was sold to a regular family. All went well because the robot was just given simple tasks around the house but then one day things took a turn for the worse.
