LEGO Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

what’s more iconic than the red brick Ghostbusters HQ building and the Ecto-1? the Marshmallow Man, of course; it is kind of the next logical addition for a Ghostbusters-themed LEGO set – if there’s going to be a series dedicated to this cult comedy/horror flick. following up to his successfully nominated LEGO Cuusoo set, the LEGO Ghostbusters Set, Brent Waller is at it again, introducing you the LEGO Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. it stands at a magnificent 13 inches (34 cm) tall and is composed of roughly 1,800 pieces. what you have here is an unmistakable silverscreen icon immortalized in LEGO bricks, featuring articulated head and limbs, along with details like sailor hat with red ribbon, plus the traditional sailor’s collar and red neckerchief.

LEGO Ghostbusters Set

we, or rather i, have been a fan of LEGO enthusiast Brent Waller’s works. it started when Waller created his own iteration of the The Dark Knight‘s Batmobile nicknamed ‘Tumbler‘. thanks to Waller and the blueprint he willingly shared with fellow LEGO lovers, i was able to build a LEGO Tumbler myself. the details that went into Brent’s Tumbler were nothing short of amazing. that said, i am more than thrilled to know that one of Brent’s work, the Ghostbusters ECTO-1 is going be an official LEGO set. the 21108 LEGO Ghostbusters Set, as it will be known as, will hit the shelves this June, just in time for the 30th anniversary of the iconic blockbuster film.

LEGO NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover

since August 2012 right through to 2013, the biggest thing to happen in science would be Mars Curiosity Rover – the historic space vehicle that would answer mankind’s question, at least in part, of whether the Red Planet could be a habitable planet or otherwise. and hence, it couldn’t be more fitting to kick off the Danish toy company’s 2014 toy line with the model of this “miracle of engineering”, the 21104 LEGO NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover Set. Mechanical Engineer Stephen Pakbaz who worked on the actual Mars Curiosity Rover at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is man behind this detailed 295-piece which features a set of 6-wheel rocker-bogie suspension, articulated robotic arm and multiple camera sets.

LEGO The Goonies 30th Anniversary Set

remember The Goonies? we suppose you do and would also have pretty fond memories of it, if not you won’t be reading this. no? anyway for the uninitiated, it was a 1985 action-adventure-comedy flick starring mainly child actors (among them were Corey Feldman, Sean Austin, and Josh Brolin), helmed by Richard Donner with Steven Spielberg being one of the executive producers. the combination of comedic scenes, cheesy lines, and Indiana Jones-like action and adventure signature to the 80s films were all in there, making The Goonies a hit back then (it raked in some $9 million domestically on the opening weekend, surpassing the original Indiana Jones). the funny thing is, we didn’t think it to be as cult or iconic as Back To The Future, or Indiana Jones franchise to warrant a LEGO set. however, LEGO Cuusoo member Lyonsblood begs to differ and hope to let adults and kids alike a chance to relive the adventure of Mikey, Chunk, Data, Mouth, Andy and Sloth, collectively known as The Goonies, with this LEGO The Goonies 30th Anniversary Set.
