Something big was announced by LEGO on the first week of 2019. It was this: The LEGO Movie 2 70840 Apocalypseburg Set. What makes this set stand out is, not only there are 12 new-for-January-2019 minifigures, but it is the biggest and possibly, the most epic The LEGO Movie 2 LEGO set yet. How big? We are talking about a cool 3,178 piece count and a final build size that towers at 20 inches (52 cm) tall, 19 inches (49 cm) across and 12 inches (33 cm) deep. Continue reading The LEGO Movie 2 Apocalypseburg Is An Epic 3,000+ Piece LEGO Set
Now, here’s a new LEGO Architect set that will not appeal to old schoolers. We are talking about the new LEGO 21043 Architecture San Francisco. The set, as the name implies, features the familiar San Francisco skyline, or should I say, an updated San Francisco skyline which now includes the newly minted, towering Salesforce Tower that made headline last Halloween. Continue reading LEGO Architecture San Francisco Skyline Features A New Landmark
Life-size replica of cars in LEGO is becoming old. On our end alone, we have already come across quite a handful, including Nathan Sawaya’s Batmobile, a 2-ton Toyota Camry, and a LEGO Technic-based Bugatti Chiron. Though the latter did stood out as a life-size replica that is actually drivable, albeit very slowly, and not a mere sculpture. Speaking of life-size replica of cars in LEGO and sculpture… here’s another: a Full-size LEGO 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Continue reading Chevrolet Has Another Life-size LEGO Build, This Time its A Silverado
South Korean LEGO Certified Professional Wani Kim, who has a special passion for diorama, has recreated the iconic Death Star Trench Run scene from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977, 20th Century Fox) with his (or was it her? Not sure) team, Olive Seon. And let me tell you this: I can’t stop myself from ogling at it. Man, this is perhaps one of the most impressive Star Wars-related MOC we have seen thus far. The diorama is an enormous creation that stretches 2,680 mm (8.79 feet) long, 1,370 mm (4.49 feet) deep and stands 1,100 mm (3.60 feet) tall. Continue reading Iconic Death Star Trench Run Scene Recreated With LEGO Has An Astonishing Level Of Details
Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981, Paramount Pictures) is arguably the most defining treasure-hunting, adventure flick in the franchise, if not the entire movie industry. In the movie, the boulder scene was perhaps the most iconic. So much so that it inspires a thrill ride in Disneyland which I personally enjoyed. Clearly, I am kind of a fan and when someone recreated the iconic boulder scene from the first Indiana Jones movie out of LEGO, I was absolutely thrilled. Continue reading Indiana Jones Boulder Scene Recreated In LEGO Is Absolutely Bonkers!
Mercedes-Benz Zetros is a versatile truck that is kind of underrated. It is not iconic as the Unimog and therefore, this unsung hero of unforgiving terrains will never see itself as an official LEGO set. But LEGO enthusiast LC-jrx is totally fine with it because, he has created one. LC-jrx’s creation is an expedition recreation vehicle like the real life example we seen in 2014. Continue reading The Details In This LEGO Mercedes-Benz Zetros Will Blow Your Mind
If you have not heard, Leica Miami Store is selling (or was selling?) unofficial Leica x LEGO Rangefinder Model Camera. Unlike the real Leica Rangefinder, which cost thousands and therefore less likely to fly off the shelves, the LEGO Leica Rangefinder Model Camera did flew off the shelves – even though it is clear as day that it isn’t an official LEGO set). Continue reading Leica Rangefinger Won’t Fly Off The Shelves But The LEGO Version Will
Creating wearable out of LEGO elements, though rare, is not exactly new. The world’s famous bricks have been used to create some rather mind-blowing wearables, including a stunning 25 lbs Star Wars-themed dress, a functional prosthetic arm, and at least one exoskeleton suit (of sort), and now, we can add these wearable LEGO helmets to the list. Continue reading These LEGO Marvel’s Superhero Helmets Are Totally Wearable
Kids get bored with toys fairly quickly. That is an inevitable fact that LEGO prefer not to happen and hence, the LEGO AR Playgrounds iOS App. AR here is, of course, augmented reality. Leveraging on Apple’s ARKit technology to detect a real physical LEGO set, bringing it to life with special effects, animations, and interactive games. I foresee kids will get all ga-ga over this because, the entire thing will be played in a familiar place like the living or room while incorporating their very own LEGO set they own. I know I will for sure, except that I am not a huge fan of Ninjago. Continue reading LEGO Extends Playability Of Its LEGO Sets With Augmented Reality
Are you surprise at all that Warner Bros., TT Games, and the LEGO Group has announced The LEGO Movie 2 video game? It shouldn’t really and yeah, the The LEGO Movie 2 Video Game is coming. As before, it is LEGO’s own licensed tie-in game to its own license tie-in movie. We do not when it will come onto the markets, but we do know it will be available in 2019 and on several platforms, include Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Xbox One X, as well as PC.
