I Demand a LEGO Razor Crest

I finally got caught up on the first couple of episodes of The Mandalorian the other day and I only have one thing to say: I need a LEGO model of his ship. It’s called the Razor Crest, it looks cool, and it should already have a LEGO model. Why does this not yet exist?

It’s an ugly ship, but I want it

If you were to tell me to slow down, that The Mandalorian has barely started and, therefore, it’s much too soon to get a LEGO set from the show, I would immediately tell you that you’re wrong. A LEGO set featuring The Mandalorian already exists! But it’s a simple recolored AT-ST!

That girl’s got legs!

That’s tiny little LEGO Mando’ you’re looking at!

No capes!

So why has LEGO announced a set featuring The Mandalorian but not yet made a set featuring the only other recognizable element of the show? LEGO loves making Star Wars spaceship models, and here’s a new one for us to enjoy!

The only explanation, I think, is that the upcoming Razor Crest set is going to feature a mini-figure of that big surprise character at the end of the first episode. I won’t spoil the character here, just in case you’re reading my blog without first watching The Mandalorian. But I’d bet big that the upcoming set will feature that mini-fig and LEGO actually wanted to avoid spoiling something for once.

Whatever the case, I am patiently waiting for a Razor Crest LEGO set. Make it happen, LEGO and Star Wars!

Wonder Twins LEGO Are a Thing!

This was a welcome surprise! As you may recall, I’m a big fan of the Wonder Twins. Not from the original Super Friends cartoon, mind you, but more of an ironic appreciation for these silly and fantastic characters. Their current comic by Mark Russell is phenomenal.

Anyway, I noticed that the Wonder Twins made a split second appearance in The LEGO Batman Movie, joining the Justice League party at the Fortress of Solitude. As such, I’d hoped to get them in LEGO form somehow, and until last week, I didn’t think it had happened. But it turns out that both Zan and Jayna were immortalized in LEGO Form in the second wave of The LEGO Batman Movie blind bag mini-fig sets.

So I bought them both.

No hesitation on my part. I found them on Amazon and snatched them up immediately. I was actually searching Amazon to see if the rare Wonder Twins action figures were available when I stumbled upon the LEGO versions. I couldn’t have been more pleased.

If you’ve ever wanted to understand me on any level, just look at that picture. A LEGO version of the Wonder Twins. Phenomenal.

Let’s See That Great Into the Spider-Verse Scene in LEGO!

Remember that scene in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse where Miles Morales truly embraces his new Spider-Man persona? Set to that awesome “What’s Up Danger?” song by Blackway & Black Caviar? Of course you do!

Well the fine folks at Huxley Burg Studios have recreated it in LEGO form!

And if you don’t remember that scene at all, it’s conveniently available on YouTube! How’s that for nifty?

That’ll have to tide us over until Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes out on DVD one of these days.

I Am Not Conflicted About The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

This trailer is amazing, this movie looks amazing and I can’t wait for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part!

And you should be just as excited. The first The LEGO Movie was possibly the greatest film of the past 20 years, as far as I’m concerned. So I’m super excited for this super sequel!

6 LEGO Models I Want Them to Make Next

Wish me luck, everybody! Today is the day that the LEGO Voltron set goes on sale online, and I will be doing my best to order that sucker before the website crashes from overload. Fingers and toes are most definitely crossed!

I love me a good LEGO model. They’re fun to put together, a relaxing hobby, and a lot of them celebrate my favorite geeky things — like Voltron, Star Wars, Ghostbusters and more. So I got to thinking, what other big LEGO models do I want to be able to build someday?

Voltron Lego Set 02

Today is the day!

When it comes to building LEGO sets, I prefer vehicles and models over settings and playsets. There’s just something more solid and identifiable about a known vehicle, like the Batmobile, as opposed to something more abstract and open to interpretation, like the Batcave. Plus, it’s not like I’m taking these sets down and playing with them. I just want awesome geeky models to build and display on my bookshelves.

Join me after the jump for six future LEGO models I want to see and build after Voltron!
