An above-average unofficial look at Guardians of the Galaxy has arrived today in the form of a fan-made LEGO trailer. This trailer uses both official and unofficial LEGO minifigures to recreate one of the most recent short-form Guardians of the Galaxy trailers. Have a peek and see how the movie would look in the LEGO universe!
This week we’re to understand - straight from the source - that the Batman 3 LEGO game will be rolling out with none other than Adam West. The original king of camp will be lending his voice to "Classic Batman" - though it’s not quite clear yet if Classic Batman is the same character as "1960’s Batman."
There’s a whole collection of LEGO sets and minifigs appearing this week at San Diego Comic Con, perhaps the most exciting of which is the Batman Tumbler. This Batmobile is a reproduction of the Tumbler from the Dark Knight trilogy. This means you’ve seen it before if you’ve seen any of the most recent Batman films to have been released in theaters.
The Portal build you’re about to see is not yet a fully operational LEGO design. Instead, it’s part of the LEGO Ideas collection, one that’s been growing for several years - from its CUUSOO roots to the machine it is today. Today we witness builder "pitrek02" take the helm with over 1000 supporters - not quite what’s needed for official status, but well over the border needed to get there eventually.
As LEGO has proven over the past several years, there’s no limit to what this interchangeable interlocking brick system can do in the way of super simple buildings to extra-complex robots. They’re building pieces, after all, and open systems like the SBRICK - or SmartBrick - are coming in to expand the system even further than LEGO has already imagined. Here we’re going wireless with LEGO robotics and remote control.
The digital mock-up team behind LEGO’s video exploits have re-created a now-iconic photo of the cast for the next Star Wars film. In it, you’ll see the first chat between all of the primary cast members for Star Wars 7. This photo recreation replicates, modifies, and improves on the original.
Remember when you were a child (or last night… leave us alone, we like Lego here at SlashGear, alright?), and you’d make little cities out of Lego bricks? Houses, buildings, cars, even a bus stop or two. You’d imagine you were the Lego character, and wander around aimlessly. In London, you can live a small part of that dream.
There’s little doubt now that the Nickelodeon-owned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brand is going to go all-out when it comes to licensing new toys for their 2014 film. This week we’re having an early peek at a catalog of LEGO sets which shows off Ninja Turtles sets in several sizes, each with their own unique set of heroes in a half shell.
Further bridging the gap between physical and digital this week are the creators behind LEGO Fusion, a toy-to-screen environmental switch for iOS and Android devices. You’ll be purchasing a LEGO set in the Fusion brand, creating sets, and effectively scanning them in to the LEGO Fusion app using your iPad, iPhone, or Android device.
Now that the LEGO Movie is returning to the streets after a short absence - between theaters and its DVD/Blu-ray release - it’s time to bring out the real deal. Here as we devour the digital release of The LEGO Movie, we construct the largest of the LEGO Movie LEGO sets - the largest so far, that is to say. Here be MetalBeard’s Sea Cow.
