WATCH: DC’s Suicide Squad Recreated in LEGO!

LEGO Suicide Squad

DC and Warner Bros’ Suicide Squad is currently wreaking havoc in theaters with their supervillain-turned-good-guys act. Though reviews were a little bit off, with some even disappointed with the movie, we can’t even imagine saying the same to this Suicide Squad trailer recreated in LEGO bricks by Forrest Fire Films. Of course, their minifigure renditions are none at all ‘disappointing’. Take a look.

It has been quite a while since we saw an excellent LEGO brick-built film coming out from Forrest Fire’s workshop, but once it does, well, the page views will simply speak for itself. Truth be told, it may even be better than the original teasers. I sincerely doubt if LEGO will ever release a line of minifigs exclusively focused on the Squad, especially considering the potential nightmares that Jared Leto’s deranged Joker minifigure may cause to children. It only proves the point that being ‘bad and scary’ sometimes translates to being ‘good and excellent’.

Be sure to check the rest of Forrest Fire’s recreations over at their YouTube channel, and for latest updates on their next LEGO animation projects such as LEGO Teen Titans, and LEGO Justice League 2.

 

Thanks to Brothers Brick for the heads up.

 

LEGO Marvel Superheroes Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum 76060 Found Over At Target.

August is now officially here, and with it comes a slew of new and exciting LEGO sets that we’re raring to have our hands on. There is one particular set that keeps on intriguing us, though. The LEGO Marvel Superheroes Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060) is already up over at shop.lego.com, however, it is a little bit ‘strange’ when such a set becomes another store exclusive. We received information that 76060 is a Target exclusive, both available online and at local Target stores retailing at $29.99. The image below was taken by Stephen himself directly from his cart when he purchased the set over at Target.

Stephen intended to purchase this set directly from the LEGO Store, however, he was informed that it is a Target exclusive as of the moment. Now we’re not quite sure until when the Sanctum Sanctorum will be available over at Target. Assuming that this will be a highly sought after set considering that this is an early teaser of some sort before the film hits theaters on November 4,  it is wise to consider getting this early on.

Here is LEGO’s official description of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060), followed by a closer look at the set and the cool minifigs that goes along with it. Be sure to stay tuned at our official YouTube channel as Stephen and Jason explore and review the play features of this set.

Are We Going To See More LEGO Sets Built Around These Warner Bros Movies?

jla

Perhaps other than The LEGO Group (TLG) making waves at the San Diego Comic Con where there are so many exciting things going on right now from LEGO Dimensions Series 2 to The LEGO Batman Movie, legions of LEGO fans may also have great reasons to flock the Warner Bros Pictures Booth (#685) at Hall H. On Comic-Con’s Day #3, Warner Bros dropped three huge trailers that has the potential for further LEGO partnerships in coming up with great new sets (who knows, perhaps they’re in the works already). Thankfully, you don’t have to be physically present at the San Diego Convention Center in order to relish these Comic-Con trailers that includes a firsthand look at some of the Fantastic Beasts tucked inside Newt Scamander’s suit case, the story behind the vintage photograph of Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) as seen in Batman VS Superman, and a peek on how Bruce Wayne, together with Diana, banded together with Barry Allen (aka The Flash), Arthur Curry (aka Aquaman) and Victor Stone (Cyborg).

Take a look at these trailers as they made their debut at SDCC 2016.

As of now, LEGO seems to be keen on the potential of its DC and Marvel Superheroes line-up, with sets slated to roll out until the first half of 2017. Now that LEGO Dimensions is trying to pump life (and they’re doing a great job so far) to the ailing toys-to-life scene with its Series 2 offers, we can expect more characters added to the toy box mix of LEGO Dimensions any time soon. Wouldn’t it great to see some of the fantastic beasts in their LEGO form? We already have Niffler and the Swooping Evil brick-built for LEGO Dimensions, but there is still a lot of them that has great potential to be rendered in LEGO form.

Warner Bros’ Justice League can also benefit from a LEGO makeover with new iterations that will culminate with the arrival of a common foe, Darkseid. Similar to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, DC’s Extended Universe may also provide a seedbed of great ideas for any future LEGO sets.

WATCH: Take A Look At The Latest ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Trailer Featured At San Diego Comic-Con.

LEGO reveals and exclusives just keep on coming in from San Diego Comic-Con, now it’s Day #3. After LEGO’s first round of offering with its brand new sets centered on The LEGO Batman Movie, and exclusive Comic-Con brick-built Brickheadz figures, we now have another exclusive reveal for all those attending this year’s Comic-Con. Thankfully, Warner Bros Animation Group was kind enough to upload the Comic-Con exclusive The LEGO Batman Movie trailer for all of us to enjoy. Watch this awesome trailer and try not to be overwhelmed with all the amazing stuff that lies hidden in the attic of the Wayne Mansion.

I think I’m starting to understand how Robin feels – there is so much to say about the Batcave! This Comic-Con trailer of The LEGO Batman Movie is somehow reminiscent of that which was shown at an exclusive screening during last April’s Cinema Con at Las Vegas. The trailer gives us a glimpse on the backstory of Dick Grayson (voiced by Michael Cera) which will later be known as Robin. It was kind of shocking for Batman (Will Arnett) to hear Alfred drop that bombshell of an announcement that the lone Caped Crusader has a son – which he ‘accidentally’ adopted during a gala event. Life doesn’t give you seat belts indeed.

It didn’t take long for the highly inquisitive Grayson to figure out that Batman lives under the Wayne Mansion (which Batman immediately corrected by saying that it is ‘Bruce Wayne lives in Batman’s attic’). When the bat is finally out of the bag so to speak, it is just a matter of time before Grayson wished for a costume of his own, declaring himself as Batman’s sidekick – and like any other sidekick, he also wants a costume of his own, and wow, the array of LEGO Batman costumes shown in this clip is simply stunning. Yes, we know that some LEGO fans may already feel that Batman is already saturated with so many iterations on his costumes, but with costumes like “Tears of A Bat”, “St. Batricks”, “El Murcielago”, “Glam Bat”, “Merbat” and of course, “The Reggae Man”, I guess a little bit of LEGO fun and humor added to Batman’s minifigure line will not hurt anyone. If you were able to spot the Buccaneer Batman then you have a very good eye.

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

Will Arnett reprises his starring role from “The LEGO Movie” as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis stars as The Joker; Michael Cera as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes as Alfred. “The LEGO Batman Movie” is directed by Chris McKay and produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. It is written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, with additional screenplay material by Jared Stern & John Whittington, based on LEGO Construction Toys, in association with LEGO System AS. Chris McKay also serves as an executive producer, alongside Ryan Harris. A Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, “The LEGO Batman Movie” will open in theaters on February 10, 2017. It will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

LEGO Batman Movie Gets A Brand New Poster Straight From The SDCC And Much More.

Bruce Wayne is all hyped up for San Diego Comic Con, especially that his latest LEGO inspired film now has a new poster to boot. Warner Bros has just unveiled its recent poster for The LEGO Batman Movie, confirming its February 10, 2017 theatrical release. In its typical LEGO fashion, the poster itself is a playful take on the character of the Dark Knight, all set and ready for action in 2017 as he dons his mask once again. Interestingly, the poster reveals a new look underneath the Bat’s mask which shows a new hair piece as pointed out by Brickset.

Here’s Warner Bros official press release on The LEGO Batman Movie followed by its latest promotional poster. You may also check out the film’s official website for some cool, free stuff and film clips.
