LEGO weighing 3D printing to stave off Minecraft

LEGO is exploring 3D printing as a potential way for fans to produce their own custom bricks, as a way to stave off all-virtual world building games like Minecraft. The plastic brick company - which has already worked with Google on a virtual LEGO game playable in the Chrome browser - describes its attitude toward 3D printing as one of trying to convert it into "an opportunity for us," CMO Mads Nipper suggests.

The LEGO Movie Videogame Review

The LEGO Movie Videogame Review

Supposing you’ve not dismissed this title as another tried-and-failed movie-to-game translation, you’ll be glad to know what The LEGO Movie Videogame is just about as smooth a delivery as we’ve ever experienced. Having both the previous (rather successful) Lego video games to live up to and the (wildly successful) Lego movie to live up to, this game isn't attempting to be a stand-alone game without movie influence. Instead, The LEGO Movie Videogame attempts to be an extension of the movie universe - and it does so with flying colors.

Star Wars Rebels: video and LEGO sets spill the beans

The LEGO Movie Review

I took my 3-year-old daughter to The LEGO Movie this week and she sat through the entire 100-minute film in quiet reverence. End of review.

My daughter and I are two of the types of audience members the creators of this movie appear to have aimed for directly.

LEGO Sherlock, BTTF DeLorean and VF-1 Mecha under fan kit consideration

Sherlock Holmes reboots haven't been in short supply, but few have caught the public imagination like the BBC's Sherlock, and the moody series - just ending its third season - may be immortalized in a new LEGO set. The kit - which would include the pieces to build a version of Holmes' 221B Baker Street home, along with minifigs of Sherlock himself, John Watson, Moriarty and more - is one of LEGO's six Winter 2014 LEGO Review contenders, along with a large-scale model of the time-traveling DeLorean from Back to the Future, and the transforming VF-1 Valkyrie mecha from anime Space Fortress Macross.

CERN hides LEGO in Street View for “virtual scavenger hunt”

CERN hides LEGO in Street View for “virtual scavenger hunt”

The server racks and computer shelves of CERN might not be the first place you'd expect to find LEGO lurking, but the CERN Computing Centre team was ready with some Easter Eggs when the Google Street View cameras came calling. Google took its photo-documenting systems round the European Organization for Nuclear Research earlier this year, allowing Google Maps users to navigate the corridors virtually. However, in among the Higgs Bosons there are some hidden gems a little easier to find: aliens, gorillas, and more, all made of LEGO.
