delorean transformer

While someone on Reddit commented that it can’t be a Transformer because it doesn’t transform, Redditor TicoMachi did build this robot using only the Back To The Future DeLorean LEGO set. It’s using a car to make the robot, so I’m gonna let it slide.

I also think it’s very, very cool.

tomorrowland

New York Comic Con has started and Tomorrowland decided to do it up right. First off, George Clooney was on the Tomorrowland panel yesterday (joking about how he was spending his honeymoon at the con). Plus, Disney released the first teaser trailer and Funko debuted their first ReAction figure from the movie.

I think the movie looks really interesting and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more.

You can check out the trailer and the new figure after the break.

Dinosaurs are cool and Lego are cool, and now the two are coming together in a series of new sets that will debut in May 2015. Jill Wilfert, vice president of global licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group notes:

“We are thrilled to be a part of the groundbreaking Jurassic Park series. The film’s imagery and branding are iconic, with a rich array of landscapes, vehicles and dinosaurs that are perfect for inspiring a line of building sets that will encourage hours of creative play.”

Hours of creative play is just the thing to inspire the kiddies, and if you don’t have kids there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wasting an entire Saturday morning building a giant dinosaur to chase after all of your Chris Pratt minifigs.

Funko’s plan to siphon all the money from your wallet has hit the collectible Pocket Pop! phase.

Y’know those super kawaii Pop! keychains? These collectible tins of Pop!s are similar in that they are small enough to put in your pocket.

Funko will begin releasing Pocket Pop! Tins this December beginning with the Frozen Pocket Pop! Tin.

Then, in January, we’ll get DC Comics (Batman, Harley Quinn, and The Joker), Game of Thrones (Dany, Jon Snow, and Tyrion), My Little Pony (Rainbow Dash, Derpy, and Discord), and The Walking Dead (Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, and Teddy Bear Walker).

adventure time dogs 2

Oh my glob, tell the pups in your life to get excited because Adventure Time toys could be in their future. You can get them a Peppermint Butler chew toy, a Lumpy Space Princess rubber and rope chew toy, and even scoop up their poop with a BMO bag dispenser. Plus you can get Adventure Time scented bags to refill the dispenser. I don’t know what that scent is but I’m intrigued.

Pre-order now to receive product in November 2014.

See another chew toy and the poop bag dispenser after the break.

QMx_SerenityPlush

QMx started making Firefly merchandise because the owner, Andy Gore, is a bonafide Browncoat. They keep making it because they love the show and because we need our Firefly goodies.

I know I needed this Serenity Plush, so I’m just pleased as punch that they went and made it. I’ve seen her up close and this 18-inch Firefly Serenity Plush is quite shiny, with awesome detail (it even has little plush shuttles!).

You can sign up for the mailing list now to be notified when it’s available to order.

Check out more pictures of her after the break.

All other dioramas pale in comparison to this one built by Polish Lego artist Michal Kazmierczak. He used 60,000 bricks to recreate the Separatist headquarters on Mustafar. This didn’t come together overnight of course. In fact, it took him a whopping four months to build. The end result measures 50″ x 70″, is almost 5-feet tall, and weighs in at 140 pounds.

Batgirl

Sideshow Collectibles has just announced a new addition to their DC Comics collection with this new Premium Format Batgirl.

Standing close to two feet tall, this gorgeous statue of Barbara Gordon as Batgirl captures all of her smarts, sass, and style as she sizes up a target and readies her Batarang.

I especially love the motion of the cape and her heels. I’m a sucker for a good pair of boots.

The figure is estimated to arrive in July 2015, but you can pre-order now.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

lego 2

LEGO bricks can be wielded like paintbrushes. Finished LEGO builds often look like art, and I would definitely classify Mike Doyle as an artist. We’ve featured his jaw-dropping work in the past, and now he’s announced a sequel to his popular book Beautiful LEGO. This collection, Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark has a creepy and macabre tone with 325 pages of unique creations from 140 LEGO builders.

The above photo is an example of what you’ll see in the book, and you can see more pages after the break.

Kevin Smith is a huge Batman fan so he must be pretty darn excited to be playing a part in the upcoming Lego Batman 3. Not only will we get Smith playing Smith, but DC Entertainment chief creative officer Geoff Johns will also be playing himself. Steve Arnell, who is Green Arrow on TV, will be voicing Green Arrow in the game and Troy Baker will be voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The group will be appearing at a New York Comic-Con panel next weekend on Saturday, October 11 at noon near main stage 1-D where attendees will get to learn about all things Lego Batman.
