This playable Lego version of clue was created by Ian Spacek for the MocOlympics which challenges builders to come up with their own, one-of-a-kind creations. In this round, competitors had to make a game that you’d play on a rainy day when the power is out and you don’t have any of the usual gadgets like phones and tablets as entertainment.

Spacek used a real board as reference to get the scale and patterns just right. He also selected a few items to recreate in Lego for each room like a table and turkey for the kitchen. There’s also one unique component that’s even better than the original. To keep track of who did what, there’s a Lego scorecard to track the weapons, rooms, and suspects.

To heck with international copyright laws! Chinese toy companies Decool and Bozhi have made two different sets of League of Legends Lego-style minifigs that include 14 figures altogether.

They’re neither true Lego minifigs nor a licensed product, but they still look great and would likely get along just fine with the genuine minifigs in your collection.

Funko is having all the fun with the Firefly franchise. They’ve released ReAction versions of the characters, and now the Pop! vinyl figures they teased at Toy Fair are available for pre-order. They’ve got a great line-up for the first series including Mal, Jayne, Wash, Zoe, and Kaylee. Everyone’s dressed in the costumes we know and love, and each character comes with an accessory. You can’t take the toys from me!

The figures will ship in November.

See the rest of the series after the break.

mr. pointy plush

Wooden stakes are the best tool for getting rid of vampires, but maybe could you stop them with cuddles by giving them a plush stake? Indeed, this plush version of Mr. Pointy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer actually exists. The 12″ toy is definitely one of the weirder licensed items I’ve seen, but it works. Bonus: you could also pretend it’s a wand.

Mr. Pointy will be available to purchase in Q4.

lego slave 1

January 1, 2015 can’t get here soon enough. That’s the day we can finally purchase the Lego UCS (Ultimate Collector Series) Slave I. The pics of the Lego take on Boba Fett’s preferred mode of intergalactic transport were enough to get us really excited about it, but Lego has recently released the following video which features Hans Schlömer showing it off. Look how huge it is!

Check out the video after the break…

This wonderful Lego diorama based on The Goonies was on display at BrickCon 2014 and was created by members of the Virtual Lego Users Group (VLUG). This type of project is constructed in sections, with one member of the group organizing it all and the others each creating a section that they bring to the event to make the finished product. Members who worked on this build include Tyler Halliwell, Davey Sterling, Stacy Sterling, Dennis Price, Betsy Sandberg, Heath Flor, Lee Jones,Chris Phipson, Hans Dendauw, and matt rowntRee.

It’s impressive if you don’t know the film, but loyal fans will love all the little details they’ve included like Mikey’s and Data’s houses, One-Eyed Willie’s ship, and even some booby traps.

Dancing Groot toy

We’ve seen a few different official dancing baby Groot toys from Guardians of the Galaxy, but the catch? None of them actually danced until now. Thankfully, Marvel has teamed up with KIDdesigns to make a little Groot that moves and grooves to a version of Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.” The price is set at a very reasonable $14.99, and yes, dancing baby Groot will be available in December. Just in time for Christmas.
