Agreed... that was one of the things I noticed about the "fake" one, that no bricks came off. Having had similar experience (on a much smaller scale, of course), I figured that would happen, at least.
I also suspected the whole thing would just break apart without any glue... friction holds it together, force breaks it apart... when it weighs several thousand pounds, that's a lot of force bouncing and jolting down that hill.
