- The old ROBLOX studs look similar to the LEGO studs.
ROBLOX was sued by the LEGO Company for circle studs (as it looked similar) so ROBLOX switched to square to prevent a shut down.This was later proven false. Even if it was true, the LEGO company does not have a patent on the LEGO brick.
- The ROBLOX studs also appear similar to the Blockland studs, except that Blockland made their square shaped studs before ROBLOX did (possibly to avoid infringement as well).
- Some people dislike the new square studs, and will make textures that resemble or are the same as the old circular ones.
- Studs are also used in measuring. For example, a ROBLOXian is 5 studs tall.
- According to the ROBLOX Blog, 1 meter is equal to 20 ROBLOX studs, so a stud is 5 centimeters, and a real-life ROBLOXian (that is 5 studs tall) would be 25 centimeters, about 10 inches tall.
