Yeah that's pretty surreal, can't honestly imagine anyone giving a shit.

This though:

I kind of think the opposite - it'd be a stick-on for a video game, and the actual lego falls back out of that.

Sure, why not.

I like the deliberate stop-motion look to the animation.

Free mini kits in the fucking Daily Mail every day this week starting today. If you can bring yourself to do that.

That actually doesn't look too bad. I'm surprised.

Culture Show: Lego - The Building Block of Architecture

The Lego Movie (released 14 February) is the latest big-budget incarnation of one of the world's most popular toys. Yet Lego is more than a global brand. Tom Dyckhoff explores its fascinating relationship with architecture, and argues that it has changed the way we think about buildings.

They're coming out with an Arctic line. Now you too can re-enact John Carpenter's The Thing only with minifigs.

Lego huskies and polar bear look cool, tho.

That prog was ok, apart from Alain de whatever talking about how most toys are about destruction. No they are not.

Anyone watching the awful looking movie?

most toys are about abstraction

FYI: the Lego Marvel Superheroes game is $10 downloadable on Amazon right now. GET THIS.

They upped the price on minifigs; now $4 per, for this series at least.

President Frankenstein (kingfish), Wednesday, 26 March 2014 22:00 (three years ago) Permalink

the lego movie minifigs were £2.50, up from £2 (olympics were £2.50 also). i didn't bother with either. might pick up these though.

koogs, Wednesday, 26 March 2014 22:23 (three years ago) Permalink

We never got the Olympics ones over here. The movie figs stayed the same price.

President Frankenstein (kingfish), Wednesday, 26 March 2014 22:44 (three years ago) Permalink

actually, thinking about it, they were Team GB minifigs.

And for some reason, there was a dude there in a full Steadicam rig filming it all:

I'm imagining people building stuff so that it appears like Jareth's face in Labyrinth.

Bought myself the Lego Millennium Falcon over Xmas. It is perhaps the best thing I own. I have ordered some more specific parts from the Lego website to make it EVEN BETTER.

Coming in May:

Interesting design contrast with the human characters' eyes. Minifig black dots vs Disney large pupil.

Darkest Cosmologist junk (kingfish), Tuesday, 29 March 2016 16:45 (one year ago) Permalink

I think maybe yoda/jarjar were the ones that started this, but custom moulded heads for minifigs feel like a big design failure to me. At that point you're just making generic little action figures, it's only the claw hands that make them look anything like lego, and so selling them as minifigs starts to feel like a con.

(Actually I guess it was probably fabuland's fault, way before lego star wars was a thing).

JimD, Wednesday, 30 March 2016 09:50 (one year ago) Permalink

I wish Fabuland was still a thing, my daughter would love it

I loved Fabuland.

tokyo rosemary, Thursday, 31 March 2016 08:59 (one year ago) Permalink

Me too! I loved Fabuland and then I loved the space sets and the knights and pirates and basically anything Lego and now I am one of those sad adults that still owns Lego.

So whenever people say that Lego Friends is bad because it's pink and girls like it, well... those Fabuland animals were a pretty great gateway drug, and who am I to deny the new generation that?

a passing spacecadet, Thursday, 31 March 2016 12:54 (one year ago) Permalink

I've got such a strong tactile memory of the smoothness of the inside of the ear of my fabuland mouse.

I was one of the people who moaned about the introduction of Lego Friends because LEGO IS GENDER NEUTRAL ANYWAY GODDAMNIT but I read the other day that TLG say pre-friends, the lego customer base was 90% male, since friends it's switched to 70/30. So...shrug.

JimD, Thursday, 31 March 2016 13:16 (one year ago) Permalink

But my guess is that the different types of Lego have more a clearly defined gender split. Ninjago, Bionicals & Nexo Knights are clearly for boys and certainly my son and his pals all connect with the elements of those sets that are traditionally signifiers of boy toys - the weapons, baroque fighting details, booby traps, havoc-wreaking robot dragons and that kind of thing. Much more so than the old pirate sets, Lego City etc, which were essentially gender neutral.
