This looks promising. Something for the fans of LEGO mashup games, and fans of Marvel comics. Marvel just announced “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes” to be launched next year across different game consoles.
I love LEGOs and so do children and adults alike across the world. I just like many others have been playing with LEGO blocks my entire life but the story behind the famous blocks is still unknown to the general public. To fix this and in celebration of the 80th anniversary of the toy brand LEGO has published an animated short film that tells the story behind the blocks. Enjoy, this video is a nice one.
Now this is something you don’t see every day. Imagine life-sized LEGO forest in your backyard. Well LEGO did something like that in celebration of the brand’s “50 years in australia with an array of installations across the country, with the most recent set up in the rural town of broken hill, new south wales. residents of the outback locale were surprised to wake up to a life-size forest made up of 15 four-meter high pine trees and flower sets recreated to a 1:1 ratio of the original pieces, and then supersized to be 66 times bigger.” (designboom)
This is just too great not to be shared. If you like Inception (the movie) and LEGO, you’ll love this. Described as “an academic team project, spanning 12 weeks, representing approx 1000 hours work, this is nothing less than a masterpiece. Salute…
These type of pictures have had the same impact on me ever since I was a kid. As excited I am about the upcoming The Avengers film (April 27th, it’s so close!) I’m also quite excited about the upcoming LEGO series based on the film. I mean just look at this picture and tell me you’re not excited about this? Awesomeness in LEGO format.
This 2,100 piece Ultimate Collector’s Series LEGO R2-D2 is something I in addition to many other Star Wars and LEGO aficionados probably consider a must have item. In my mind I am trying to find excuses to spend £150 on this beautiful LEGO droid. The attention to detail the designers have put to this particular model is somewhat crazy. Although I am pretty sure this droid will not get a “pass” at the purchase process in casa de Kuisma-Chao, I can still continue scheming on how to justify getting one of these. Perhaps Maxwell would like to help daddy build this? You know, it’s good for his creative skills and all. Video after the jump.
At best the line between art and advertising is very thin. A great example of an ad campaign that works like art is the latest LEGO Imagine campaign by German agency Jung Von Matt. The minimalist print ads feature LEGO versions of famous cartoon characters constructed using only the very basic LEGO blocks. Truly inspirational work.
Quick follow up on my LEGO x Moleskine update. As suggested by Andrew on my previous post, I let my son Maxwell sign the book. It makes a great memorabilia item. Signed, dated and documented. Something I can share with Maxwell years from here. The book will be a “source of inspiration”. Instead of writing down meeting notes, it will serve a higher purpose with ideas for on-going and future projects. The first thing I wrote in the book was the research framework for my on-going PhD research, something I figured out today (hooray). So let’s see what’s next. But no matter what details the books pages will hold, the first two pages are and will be Maxwell’s. Well done son!
I’ve been fascinated with the LEGO Moleskine limited edition collaboration ever since I saw the first pictures of the notebooks. I somehow felt that I needed to get one of these books. Not just because I’m a huge LEGO fan but I have never had a Moleskine pocket book. Still I thought that perhaps I will just let it be. Since I take my notes usually with my phone or iPad, I don’t new a note book/pad. But all it took was a picture of the text inside the book and I made my first impulse purchase in a long time. “Think with your hands.”
This is by far the coolest thing I’ve seen today. Promotional video for the LEGO x Moleskine project. Stop motion animation featuring best of both worlds. Seriously awesome. Question to Jeci Chao, when can I start buying LEGOs for Maxwell?
