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?

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!

LEGO Voltron is Everything I’ve Ever Wanted From This Sad, Stupid World

The day I’ve been waiting nearly two years for has arrived: LEGO Voltron stands revealed! The massive, multi-lion LEGO set will be available to purchase on Aug. 1 for about $180.

And people think we’re not allowed to have nice things

Oh man, I’ve been salivating over this. It’s a work of freakin’ art! I was a big Voltron fan as a kid, and I’m a big fan of the current revival on Netflix. I had all of the Voltron lion action figures as a kid. They were such fun toys.

Now Voltron is coming in LEGO form, in a giant model that stands over a foot tall! And you’ll be making each individual lion, with the ability to combine them into Voltron later. That is genius and awesome and life isn’t supposed to be this much fun.

Check out more pictures and information on the LEGO website.

The individual lions look a little small

If you can recall, Voltron was one of the LEGO Ideas products, which lets fans build their own models and submit them for selection. It’s the same way we got Doctor Who LEGO and Ghostbusters LEGO. I love that this thing exists and I love that it’s given us Voltron.

Granted, we don’t get the Paladins as mini-figs, which is disappointing. But I can live with that sort of disappointment.

I might have to take the day off from work. Or the week…
