Not that this isn’t good, it is totally good. But seems like there are a lot of other things they could’ve done, Lego or otherwise, than the opening scene from Casino Royale. I’m not going to ask. I’ll just wait for the rest of it to be made.

This is good animation. Especially for Lego. That’s a lot of details for stop motion. Kudos. And Kudos for making a Lego Alien Queen. Not that easy.
Unfortunately, with LEGOs need to sell only “family friendly” franchises, a game about a LEGO Walter White cooking LEGO methamphetamines will probably never be a reality. But we can dream, so here’s what that might look like. It’s pretty dang accurate, although the opening sequence only has one character, and LEGO games never do that. They should have had Walter Jr following him around in the front yard, until he got in his car and left. And it’s got talking LEGOs, which, bad enough the real games do that, do the fan versions have to follow that terrible lead? Pantomime that shit!
Still, a noble effort, all around. If LEGO ever gets around to creating a spin-off company to sell to adults, which they should totally do Telltale Games should hire this guy right away.
Why should Star Wars get all the wildly overpriced LEGO sets? LEGO Lord of the Rings wants to get in on that action as well. So that’s what they’re gonna do with this LEGO version of Sauraman’s Tower at Isengard, which apparently isn’t called Isengard? I’ve spent the last decade under the impression that this place was called Isengard, and now you’re telling me that’s not true? “Oh, no, Isengard is just the name for the general area. The tower itself is called Orthanc.” Well, glad we got that cleared up. Point is you’ll be able to build Orthanc or Isengard or “That One Saruman Tower” or whatever you want to call it. And all for the low low price of two hundred effing dollars. Hooray!
Like LEGO Back to the Future and LEGO Shaun of the Dead before it, this LEGO Adventure Time set has been submitted to LEGO Cuusoo, where you can vote to try to get it made. Well, less a vote and more a statement that you would like to purchase it if it were made real. But obviously the answer is yes. Yes, you would like to purchase it.
Obviously it’s not the only step. Even if it gets enough support, they’d still have to determine that it’s a good fit for LEGO, then negotiate the rights or whatever with Cartoon Network. But unlike Shaun of the Dead it should have a decent chance of being made. It targets the correct group for LEGO sets, and Cartoon Network certainly doesn’t mind selling some toys. They’ve cancelled more than one good show specifically because it wasn’t selling toys. So that shouldn’t be an issue. So go support it. Let’s make it a reality.
Cause… Adventure Time.
Some new screens from the upcoming LEGO Marvel Superheroes have popped up. First is Sandman, who apparently turns into a bunch of studs in his sand form, which is pretty much the most awesome thing ever.
Then a shot of Iron Man and his terrifyingly large helmet. Which, actually, does the real toy do that? I mean, if you buy a LEGO set with Iron Man does his helmet flip open? Because if it does his creepy giant head might be justified. Might be.
And this is what I’m told is supposed to be Abomination. But really, who can tell? It’s just a big guy looking angry. That describes half of the Marvel Universe. As goofy as Tim Roth’s Abomination looked, at least it was visually distinct. Hell, even the original version with the ears would be better than this dude.
Wasn’t I just complaining about too much Star Trek? Maybe. Shut up. This is LEGO, it’s different. From the same guy that made the Man of Steel LEGO trailer, this is the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer. Which is… that. Not a lot else to say, he recreated a trailer in LEGO. It’s cute, watch it.
I thought the LEGO Hogwarts that LEGO sold me was cool, with four little sections representing all the best bits of the castle. It was nice. But it sure as hell wasn’t a 400,000 piece model intricately detailing almost every bit of the Hogwarts from the film. That’s better. That’s what Alice Finch has constructed, and you can swing on by her flickr account to see all the little bits in greater detail, including the covered wooden bridge! I love that bridge!
Hmm. I’m pretty sure there was already a LEGO X-Wing, but I guess this one is better? At twenty inches long and eighteen inches wide it’s not exactly the Executor, but I guess it’s larger than the previous X-Wing available. Still, with a two hundred dollar price tag you might just want to be happy with the old one.
It should also be noted that while the box claims that this is Red Five, Luke’s call sign in Star Wars, the Death Star behind it is clearly the second Death Star, meaning that this is the Red Five from the Endor battle, a man Wookieepedia tells me is named Grizz Frix, and is most famous for being the guy that blowed up second after destroying a Star Destroyer’s shield generator. Exciting. Maybe fix that box art to the first Death Star before the release, huh?
And what the what is Yoda doing on the box? Guess people just like Yoda.
