  • Leaked LEGO sets for new Indiana Jones movie

    What can we learn about the plotline for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull from the descriptions of LEGO playsets? Things. We can learn things. There will apparently be a scene involving giant ants, one or more sword fights, Soviets, an amphibious vehicle of some type, boats, a “jungle cutter” vehicle with spinning sawblades, a bazooka, and a long, lost temple.

However, I’d suggest going and getting your own and building it, ensuring fun for the whole family and leading to less disturbance in the Force. via BBG Read More

  • Life Begins at Fifty: Happy Birthday to LEGO

    Show me a kid that doesn’t know about LEGO and I’ll show you a kid who hasn’t LIVED, dammit! Seeing this 405-piece LEGO bucket makes me want to go out and buy it for the low, low price of $25, although using the words “piece” and “bucket” together kind of makes me want to go out and get some KFC, too. Okay, I’ll get the LEGO bucket and then… Read More

  • Lego gumball sorting machine

    Say you needed to sort gumballs by color. Say you were colorblind like Hickey or your sorting fingers were mangled in a thresher? What should you do? Well, the best solution is to build a Mindstorms NXT robot to sort your gumballs for you and, potentially, encourage you sort out your damn priorities, nerd. Sorry. Actually, I’m jealous of this guy simply because I always wanted to do… Read More

  • When LEGO Meets Guitar Hero

    You can build just about anything out of LEGOs if you’re crafty enough. A dinosaur, a spaceship, or a working PS2 controller that’s in the shape of a Gibson Explorer guitar. In this case, it’s the latter and this LEGO guitar for Guitar Hero actually looks better than the standard guitar controllers. Shred, anyone? It works for PS2 and no, you can’t get one. But you can… Read More

  • Lego MMO In The Works?

    Digital Trends is reporting that a Lego MMO-style game is currently in the works. Dubbed “Lego Universe”, the game will allow you to play the roll of a Lego figure in a Lego world.

  • Lego's Solar-Powered Helicopter Teaches Kids About Energy Conservation

    Lego plans to teach kids about the importance of energy conservation (to help stop “global warming” I’m sure) with its solar-powered helicopter. There’s literally no information on the device, but we can make wild, haphazard guesses. It would be wonderful if the blades rotated when exposed to the mighty power of the sun, but that might not even be the case. here, so… Read More
