Based on the current 32% fresh over at Rotten Tomatoes for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I get the feeling that the next great Batman movie won’t be released this weekend, but in 2017. That’s when we’ll get the LEGO Batman Movie. After the break, watch the first teaser trailer.
Unlike many of my fellow geeks here, I’ve never gotten into the Lego video games. I’ve tried a few demos and I own one of the Marvel Super Hero ones, but have barely played it. Maybe one day I’ll get back at it, but I have so many games I want to play that I’ll never get to as is, so who knows.
Regardless, news leaked and then became official today that a new Lego Star Wars game would be available on June 28th. Not only will gamers will be able to relive the events of The Force Awakens, but the game will also feature story that fills in continuity gaps between Return of the Jedi and TFA. That is causing quite a stir online, but really it isn’t much more than they’ve done with the novels and comic books that bear this logo:
Still a cool move by Lego and Star Wars, and you can check out the entertaining game announcement trailer after the jump.
For some Friday free time – here is a video created by the Brotherhood Workshop as a way for The LEGO Group to advertise their “Escape from the Haunted Isle” online game.
Nothing is hotter or SMALLER than Ant-Man right now, except for maybe a little version of him. Check out the amazing Ant-Man trailer made of legos, frame by frame, by Toscano Bricks after the break:
Say hello to Luke everyone! “Hi LUKE!” Luke loves dinosaurs – and recently was inspired by Jurassic World. So inspired in fact, that he deconstructed his LEGO Millennium Falcon to get enough grey pieces to build the new Indominus Rex from the movie! Now – though we all think the Millennium Falcon should never be deconstructed, because well – it’s the Millennium Falcon! We still have to give props to Luke for being super ingenious and hard core! Awesome replica of the Rex-Raptor hybrid Luke – this scores a win for creativity! Well done!
Our favorite Brotherhood Workshop is at it again. This time, they pull inspiration from the ever popular Jurassic World. Watch as the King of the Dinosaurs faces his greatest challenge yet: a game of catch. Video after the break:
LEGOS Marvel’s Avengers is here!!! At least the trailer is – and it’s awesome. And in case you forgot, this game is on top of Lego Jurassic World, Lego Worlds and Lego Dimensions, all of which are either currently available or coming soon. Though we haven’t had a Lego Marvel game since Lego Marvel Super Heroes in 2013, we have had one of the biggest Marvel movies of all time release this year. So saddle up – because you’ll definitely want to grab this while it’s hot!
WOWZERS! Would you look at that! We can all thank Erik Jones for building a castle that makes us think of “once upon a time.” He built it from 50,000 LEGO bricks. Jones–already a LEGO builder–was inspired by taking a close look at Cinderella’s Castle on a visit to the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. He took his time designing the castle in LEGO Digital Designer and used original blueprint sketches he found online for the castle before starting to piece it together in January. The finished model of Cinderella’s Castle stands at six and a half feet high and is four and a half feet wide. By the time all 50,000 bricks were clicked into place, Jones estimates he spent $4,500 on supplies. I wonder if I ask my fairy Godmother really nicely, if she’d build something like this for me too! Want to see more pics? Check it out after the break:
Who’s excited for the new LEGO Jurassic World video game coming out this month! YEEEEEHAAW!!! I know I am! And to show you all the awesome goodness, we have 3 trailers lined up for you to watch – because – we spare at no expense. 🙂 Enjoy!
There is a serious injustice happening right now in the Toy industry. I’m not talking about how we’ve strayed from making toys indestructible (have you ever tried to break a Lincoln Log?), or how craftsmanship is a thing of the past. Nor am I talking about how most toys now-a-days have some kind of mechanical battery operated mechanism which leaves nothing left for imagination. No – the injustice I speak of is something that’s always been there, yet I’m so damn fed up with it – and that’s gederfication and blatant sexism in the toy industry.
