If you have seen The Lego Movie, then it’s probably safe to assume that you loved it. Why wouldn’t you? Everything about The Lego Movie is AWESOME! Instead of seeing the movie again (and again), check out our roundup of recent LEGO announcements, new building sets, and amazing Lego artwork.
Special LEGO Episode of The Simpsons- Lego and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products have teamed up to make the first official Simpsons LEGO set. In addition to an official Simpsons LEGO set, it was also announced that The Simpsons will have a special LEGO episode called “Brick Like Me” airing on Sunday, May 4th. Fingers crossed for Homer saying Leg’oh!
LEGO Movie Mondo Poster- Talented illustrator Tom Whalen has designed a beautiful fan art poster for The Lego Movie. Inspired by his son being a “legomaniac”, Whalen created a print featuring the film’s minfigs for Mondo Tees. Unfortunately, we already missed the exclusive Mondo sale, but there’s always eBay. You can check out more of Whalen’s artwork here.
The Brotherhood Workshop- Looking for more animated LEGO adventures to watch? You’re in luck! The Brotherhood Workshop makes clever parodies of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and several other popular titles– out of LEGO sets! You can check out The Brotherhood Workshop on YouTube.
LEGO’s Disney Princess Line- Last November, LEGO announced a new line of Disney Princess toys. While the Princess line looks more like LEGO Friends than classic brick and minifigures, the new Disney sets are adorable. Just look at the smolder on Flynn Rider! Perhaps with the success of The Lego Movie, we might be one step closer to seeing a Snow White minifig.
The Lego Movie Videogame– Was there ever any doubt that The Lego Movie would have its own video game? Developed by TT Games, this action-adventure game allows players to be Regular Builders like Emmet or Master Builders like Vitruvius. You can snag your own copy of The Lego Movie Videogame on Amazon.
Looks like the Master Builders at LEGO have been hard at work. What did you think of The Lego Movie? Do you have a favorite LEGO brick build or minifig? Let us know in the comments!
