LEGO Exosuit comes next in CUUSOO fan-made lineup

As part of a collection of oddities that also includes Minecraft and the Mars Curiosity Rover, an "exosuit" has joined the fray known as LEGO CUUSOO. This is the first set to have been submitted and approved with LEGO CUUSOO that’s not either based on a pre-existing object or part of an entertainment brand.

Back to the Future: LEGO CUUSOO Review

Back to the Future: LEGO CUUSOO Review

In the spirit of the film series - and partially because we didn’t get the set until very recently - we’ve decided to release our review of the Back to the Future (BTTF) DeLorean Time Machine LEGO CUUSOO set to here, several months after it’s been put on sale. This set is just one of a growing collection created by the minds at "Team BTTF", a set of conceptual LEGO artists that aim to support the Michael J. Fox Foundation and bring Back to the Future to a new generation of fans.

LEGO Breaking Bad and Shaun of the Dead sets appear aside new Movie figs

This week at SXSW the LEGO presentation team have showed off and mentioned several new sets for the near future. In addition to suggesting that they’ll have more LEGO Movie sets in the near future, they’ve given glimpses of in-movie "history books" and Taco Tuesday. From what we understand of the LEGO Movie sets out on the market today, the team didn’t expect such a major response from moviegoers - they’ve been modest so far: there’s a lot more on the way.

HUVr Hoverboard isn’t real, but these Back to the Future products are

HUVr Hoverboard isn’t real, but these Back to the Future products are

While we’re far from convinced that the "HUVr" floating skateboard presented today is the genuine article, we’ve been seeing some other fantastic real-life Back to the Future gadgets and toys in the recent past. While the whole lot could be ramping up toward a fourth installment in the Back to the Future series of Steven Spielberg films, it’s far more likely that the spirit of the series is simple alive and well.

HUVr: Back to the Future’s Hoverboard gets “real”

There’s a campaign running right this minute with some wizards of video effects that have some surprising celebrity connections up their sleeves, one that suggests they’ve finally created the real Hover Board from Back to the Future. This is a viral campaign, working with celebrities like model Billy Zane (also BTTF actor), skateboarder Tony Hawk, and actor (and the original "Doc" from Back to the Future) Christopher Lloyd. They also suggest that it’s all very "real."

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.

Star Wars Rebels: video and LEGO sets spill the beans

This week the first look we've had up close and personal with the creators and the artwork behind Star Wars Rebels is close at hand. What we're seeing here is a preview for the animated show that'll take place between the 3rd and 4th Star Wars movies.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark leaked: not a movie tie-in

The next big Transformers game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Nintendo 3DS (strangely), and Wii U has been leaked - it goes by the name of Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, and it's apparently not just a movie tie-in. While it is possible that this is a follow-up to the "War For Cybertron" follow-up game, rumor has it that this game will not be tied directly to the plot line for the upcoming Transformers film, Transformers: Age of Extinction.

UPDATE: Now made official! Have a peek at the trailer below!
