LEGO’s popularity is at an all-time high, thanks in part to the vast success of The LEGO Movie, which quickly launched a series of spinoffs and a new sequel. The major studios all have relationships with the toy giant, which releases LEGO sets based on popular franchises like the Marvel and Warner Bros. superhero films, as well as Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean. You really can’t get into the blockbuster business without getting into the brick-buster business (sorry). Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary will now tell the story of the manufacturer, with a little help from Jason Bateman.
Pencils (or bricks) down, everyone — this is officially the best Jurassic Park fan-made trailer we’re going to see, ever (unless someone has a line on some sick animatronics). A father/daughter team utilized over $100,000 worth of LEGO pieces to create a three-minute stop-motion Jurassic Park video, featuring some of the best moments from Steven Spielberg’s classic film.
LEGO recreations of trailers and scenes from films are often pretty fun to watch, though they’re not always of the best quality, as fans rush to complete and reveal their projects before someone else beats them to the punch. That’s not the case with Morgan Spence, a 15-year-old kid from Scotland whose LEGO recreations of famous movie scenes are really top notch. His latest project recreates the famous funeral scene from Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel—not the typical film you’d expect to see LEGO form, but once you do, you’ll be quite charmed.
If you're looking for a diverse line of toys that not only spans a variety of licenses and genres, but also puts your brain to the test, Lego's Toy Fair 2015 offerings might be of interest to you. From Marvel and DC to Scooby-Doo and Star Wars, this year's line-up offers incredible do-it-yourself creations for fans of all ages, even those meddling kids.
Attendees at this weekend’s New York Toy Fair were greeted with a special announcement from LEGO about their latest Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series set: The TIE Fighter. Joining previous releases like the Boba Fett Slave 1 and The Sandcrawler, the new TIE Fighter set is equally impressive and intense, boasting a whopping 1,685 pieces. LEGO is not messin’ around when it comes to their epic Star Wars sets.
In a few months, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ will be in theaters and, thanks to the deep pockets of Disney’s marketing department, Marvel’s premiere superhero team will literally be everywhere you look. However, their strongest presence will be in the toy aisles, with new LEGO sets and action figures scheduled to arrive just in time to tease the movie, delight your kids, and drain your wallet. To add insult to injury, the coolest most wallet-draining toy of them all isn’t even tied into the new movie. It’s from the first film.
Just yesterday, the reveal of a new Iron Man toy gave us out first glimpse of the character’s new armor in the upcoming ‘The Avengers 2.’ The trend of toys jumping the gun continues today: a German ad for the first wave of LEGO sets based on Joss Whedon’s superhero team-up sequel has made its way online and it may very well tease some setpieces and concepts that haven’t been present in any of the trailers thus far.
We're still over a year away from the big-screen debut of the amazingly titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which your two favorite DC Comics heroes will be v-ing each other alongside other...
By now we've seen 'The Simpsons' tackling a number of pop-culture funhouse mirrors of themselves, from the recent 'Family Guy' crossover to last season's LEGO installment, and this year's "Treehouse of Horror" is no different. Watch Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie meet not only their Tracey Ullman counterparts, but countless more parodying anime, 'Adventure Time,' 'Archer' and more from last night's Halloween special!
Everything really is awesome in the world of LEGO. After the success of Warner Bros.' 'The LEGO Movie,' the studio quickly signed off on 'The LEGO Movie 2' for a 2017 release. But now, with more than two years until the sequel, two more LEGO movies have been dated!
