Yes,, the Lego Winter Village Market set is really cute. Yes, it has 1,261 pieces and includes minifigs. And yes, with its rotating carousel it has the potential of being the perfect setting for a stop motion murder movie. But Lego is trying my patience by releasing something related to Christmas in the summer.
Lord of the Rings and Lego fans of the world, get ready to sink $200 in the new 2359-piece, 28-inch tall Lego Tower of Orthanc set, which includes six floors: dungeon, entrance hall, Saruman’s throne room, alchemy room, library and the secret attic to which you can access using a secret stair. It's now available for…
Brick News has obtained photos of the official Lego Back to the Future set, including the minifigs for Marty McFly and Doc Brown. As you can see, it's more elaborated than the version approved by Lego Cuusoo but not as pretty. Not even close. You'll be able to create all the three versions of the car using the pieces…
This one was pretty high in my Stuff From the 80s That Urgently Needs the Lego Treatment list, almost tied with Mario and Donkey Kong.* At last, the Danish company has released a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set collection!
At last, one of the most iconic Star Wars scenes is out in Lego form: the Rancor Pit set. It will be available next January for $60.
Holy Mother of the Minichrist! Check out the new Lego B-wing fighter. It's simply the best Ultimate Collector Series set since the still unmatched 24-pound, 5,159-block Millennium Falcon, from 2007. The Danish mothership sent us high resolution images and video. Check them out.
I never watched The Addams Family when I was a kid. But I loved the Munsters—with Eddie, Marilyn (swoon), Grandpa, Lily (double swoon) and Herman Munster, father and Apple analyst. That's why I love the latest (big!) Lego set.
You should have bought this new Lego R2-D2, from the Ultimate Collector Series, instead of the new iPad. Why? First, because it's amazing. Second, because it's amazing. Third, because it will be sold out very soon. Fourth, because it will cost as much as two new iPads in just a year.
The Sydney Opera House is one of the three Lego Architecture models coming out this year, along with London's Big Ben and South Korea's Namdaemun Gate. It's a neat small construction. The $40 set—model 21012—includes 270 pieces.
I love all the new Lego Lord of the Rings' minifigs, but I have one favorite: Gollum. They truly captured his creepy nature, yet he still looks cute. My favorite detail, however, are the two faces of Frodo, showing his transformation through the story.
The new Lego Batcave is so neat. It is modeled after the original comicbooks and uses the classic blue Batman. Its coolest feature is the Bat-Gear part, where Bruce Wayne turns into Batman. It's so stupidly neat that it's funny.
Among all the Lego surprises at Toy Fair 2012, there's a cool new Star Wars set called Droid Escape. It's the pod in which C-3PO and R2-D2 use to land on Tatooine in the original movie. It includes these two stormtroopers, which are amazingly detailed.
Lego has some really cool new stuff at their NYC Toy Fair booth, but I pounced on the new Lord of the Rings sets right away. I was able to record them quickly for your nerdgasmic pleasure.
Rejoice fellows of the Lego ring, because we got the first close-up look of the Lego Lord of the Rings sets coming out this year. And they are amazing, from the Mines of Moria—cave troll included!—to Helm's Deep to Shelob!
After the incoming Lego Minecraft, the other big Lego franchise that nerds everywhere are dying to get is Lego Lord of the Rings. This is the first view of its minifigs, captured by Huw Millington at London's Toy Fair.
Every year I go through the same process: 1) avidly open my Lego Holiday Catalog, 2) plan how to obtain the $37,495 needed to get all the models I want, 3) weep in desperation.
I'm happy to see that my favorite Danish company keeps updating their Lego Architecture series. This is the Lego Rockefeller Center, a minimalistic reproduction of the magnificent 22-acre art deco building complex in Manhattan, designed by Raymond Hood..
The Lego Tower Bridge it's like the real one, but without the annoying rain and the fog. With 4,287 pieces and over 80 windows, it's 40 inches long (102cm), 17 inches high (45cm) and 10 inches wide (26cm).
