legoland-hotel

The Legoland hotel in Florida if officially open and it looks like the coolest place ever. The 152 room hotel is divided into four themes:  Pirate, Kingdom, Adventure and Lego Friends. Each room sleeps five and has a King-size bed, bunk bed, and pull-out trundle bed. The rooms are completely decked out in LEGO decor from floor to ceiling and even come stocked with LEGO bricks to play with during your stay.

Furthermore, the rooms all have two flat screen TVs, a mini fridge, coffee maker, and a treasure chest that can be unlocked by completing a scavenger hunt. I’m literally booking my stay as I type this. I mean, there’s even a LEGO-themed pool.

And check out the brick dragon hanging over the main entrance of the hotel – he totally breathes steam out his nose. I’ve officially released my inner child and she’s going bonkers over this.

Check out more awesome photos of the rooms after the break.

The upcoming Lego Dimensions game promises to turn our favorites from Portal 2, Doctor Who, Back to the Future and more into adorable playable characters. The latest live-action trailer for the game has Christopher Lloyd, also known as Doc Brown, reprising his role and investigating a mysterious box.

It holds a Lego set that, when put together, sucks Doc Brown right into the game. We also get to see a few other characters that will be in the game like Harley Quinn, Joker, and Superman. This game is set for release on September 27th and it just can’t get here fast enough.

These clever Lego vignettes were created by French photographer Samsofy. He stages Lego minifigs to create photographs that look like the toys are part of the real-world. Superman lifts a real sewer grate, a construction worker jackhammers a giant crack in some cement, and Gandalf confronts a Balrog-sized cat.

See more examples of his work after the break.

One of the things I loved best about Avengers: Age Of Ultron was the fact that Paul Bettany, who I think is an incredible actor, finally got to spend time in front of the camera as Vision –– and what a vision he was.

The new Vision Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys does a pretty fantastic job of capturing the character. The details are all on target, though I wish it was possible to capture the brilliant performance.

The figure is currently on pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles and is estimated to arrive between December of this year and February 2016.

Head after the break for more details and pictures.

DC’s popular Bombshells line of statues are making the transition to digital comics. This new digital-first series will be written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Margeurite Sauvage. Bennett is pretty excited saying:

“’DC Comics Bombshells’ is one of the wildest things I’ve ever had the pleasure to create — a story of the DC heroines, all the DC heroines, in a crisis that defines themselves as well as their generation,” said Bennett in a press release. “I cannot possibly tell you how excited and grateful I am to be involved in a story this massive and inventive. The series will explore war stories, romances, mysteries, heists, action adventure and horror in a way that only these characters could do — I cannot wait for this book to drop. Pun very much intended.”

It will star Supergirl, Batwoman, and Wonder Woman, but the full cast hasn’t been announced. Digital availability of the first issue will come in July with print following on August 12th. DC is also releasing a series of variant covers across their comics line (including a fantastic Black Canary for Green Arrow by Ant Lucia) to promote the new comic.

See the variant covers along with the full press release after the break. And don’t forget that we’re giving away a DC Bombshells Mera statue! Enter to win before May 20th.

The Play Arts series of figures is simply outstanding, and Square Enix is on top of their game with this 11″ Batman Arkham Knight figure.

From the “A” emblazoned on his chest to the translucent visor, Square Enix went for attention to detail. The figure has two interchangeable helmet pieces, a sniper rifle, two handguns, three interchangeable hands and a figure stand.

dc meets thomas

I’m doubly amused about this because Thomas the Tank Engine is featured in an add for Marvel’s Ant-Man at the moment, but this SDCC Exclusive Thomas & Friends Super Friends Minis DC mashup set is wild.

I dunno, what do you think?

This 14″ inflatable Death Star beach ball is the perfect way to pass the time this summer. Not only does it look like it could blow up a planet, but it has impact-activated lights that twinkle as you play.

What do you do when you’re a hardcore Star Wars collector who’s gone to the trouble (and expense) of collecting the entire first run of the original 1977-85 Kenner Star Wars characters (including the Blue Snaggletooth, Yakface, Double-telescoping lightsaber Luke Skywalker, and the very rare Vinyl Caped Jawa)?

You get a custom display case made and put that bad boy up on the wall. Gorgeous.

The case is six feet wide and two feet tall, with UV protected glass and shelves that are framed by a dimmable backlit LED tube. All of the wires and tech that makes that happen are tucked behind it, so all you see is the glory of the collection.
