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.

We’re still expecting a lot of great reveals this Saturday at the SDCC, particularly the brand new trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie. Stay tuned here at the Brick Show for more #LEGOSDCC news and updates.

UPDATE: New LEGO Batman Movie Sets Featuring The Joker And Robin Revealed!

LEGO revealed earlier today via its social media channels Facebook and Twitter (which was deleted shortly after they were posted) on what seem to be two new sets that will come out based on Warner Bros Animation Group’s (WAG) The LEGO Batman Movie which is still scheduled to hit the big screen February of next year. According to Brickset, these images include a newer rendition of The Batmobile and Joker’s Notorious Lowrider. If you recall, the film’s director Chris McKay confirms that the LEGO Batman Movie will pay tribute to the caped crusader’s very rich history of crime-fighting ventures and all the memorable characters that comes with it. So it will not be a surprise to see if LEGO will throw in some familiar characters from the Dark Knight’s life, and we’ll get to see them both on screen and as new LEGO sets.

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FLEGO%2Fposts%2F10153845154193403&width=500
First off is a new version of The Batmobile, which includes a handful of minifigures: Batman, Robin, Man-Bat, and the Kabuki Twins which is a pair of Oriental assassins employed by the Penguin in an earlier animated series. The Batman minifig sports a new belt attachment while Robin has a new hair piece and a pair of goggles. The Man-Bat on the other hand, seems to be the same minifigure included in 2014’s LEGO DC Superheroes Batman – Man-Bat Attack. The Kabuki Twins enters the fray after more than a decade of being on hiatus. It is interesting to speculate what role they will play in the film.

The Joker’s Notorious Lowrider may be smaller in size, but is also equally impressive with its excellent color scheme. The set comes with three minifigs: the Batgirl, Harley Quinn, and of course the Joker. What set these minifigures apart is that they are excellently detailed, with elaborate hair pieces (just take Harley Quinn’s hairpiece for instance) and prints particularly on the sides of Harley and the Batgirl.

Take a look at these sets as they were revealed at the Comic-Con.

Interestingly, we now know that the Joker’s Notorious Lowrider has an assigned code of 70906 as from the tweet above. Apparently, the selling points for these LEGO Batman Movie sets will probably come from the interesting choice of minifigs that LEGO has thrown in. So what do you think about these newest sets from LEGO? Share your thoughts in the comments below, or you may want to join in the discussion, by heading to our Facebook page.

Here’s A Peek At The LEGO Batman Movie’s Robin and The Joker.

 

LEGO Batman_03

USA Today gives us a first look at some of the major characters that will join the Caped Crusader in his very first solo-titled movie, The LEGO Batman Movie. Last April, we were intrigued by the Warner Bros Animation Group’s (WAG) take on the origin of Batman’s sidekick, Robin. Will Arnett, the voice behind the beat-boxing, crime-fighting hero of Gotham, together with producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord revealed an exclusive, never-before-seen teaser during this year’s CinemaCon. As seen from the teaser, Robin turns out to be Batman’s ‘accidental’ adopted son named Dick Grayson (voiced by Michael Cera) whom he met at a charity auction. Here are some photos of the Boy Wonder in all his googly eyed glory.

LEGO Batman_04 LEGO Batman_03

Eventually, it was not only Robin who made his debut, but we also have a look at a re-imagined, minifigure Joker who never fails to wreck havoc in Gotham. Joker seems to make fun of the Dark Knight as Batman chases him along the streets with Harley Quinn at the wheel, thinking that he can outrun him, ever proving to himself and Batman that he is the most annoying villain that the Bat ever encountered. “The Joker sees himself on the same level as Batman, a peer, at the top of the game,” director Chris McKay says. “But Batman says that’s not the case, which sends Joker into a spiral trying to prove to Batman that he is indeed the greatest enemy.”

LEGO Batman_01 LEGO Batman_02

USA Today also reports that a brand new trailer for the LEGO Batman Movie is set to debut during this week’s San Diego Comic-Con. We might see more of the bubbly Boy Wonder once again, plus a mother load of references and cameos of previous Batman films, comics, and other renditions. In case you missed it, here’s the official trailers of The LEGO Batman movie, which is scheduled to hit theaters on February 9, 2017.

WATCH: Life Size LEGO Captain America Statue On Its Way To SDCC 2016!

It’s one huge LEGO superhero event at this year’s SDCC at the San Diego Convention Center, with the LEGO brick-built statue of the Amazonian princess, Diana Prince being joined by Steve Roger’s Captain America – and when we say huge, we mean life-sized huge! CNN Money reports that the LEGO Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut is cooking up another treat to all comic book lovers by recreating another superhero icon and giving it the exclusive LEGO Master Builders treatment.

Cap Statue

Also celebrating his 75th year in the superhero business alongside Wonder Woman, Captain America is immortalized in LEGO bricks by LEGO Master Builder Erik Varszegi and his team of LEGO craftsmen. Brainstorming on nine possible poses, Varszegi and his team took a total of 277 hours and 25,984 bricks and elements to create the 6′ 1″, 153 lbs rendition of the Star-Spangled hero. While his team worked on the rest of Cap’s statue, Varszegi worked on what he does best: the details on the statue’s head and face. He personally worked on the details of Cap’s head and face while paying special attention to some special features like the ear piece he worn in Captain America: Civil War, and the tiny hint of color green in his eyes.

Cap Statue 02

LEGO’s partnership with Marvel allow Master Builders like Varszegi access to advanced screening of the films and access to their huge superhero library for research purposes. It’s the ultimate dream for any comic book geek and fans. “We have to be quiet about that, because of course we’re working on these things even before the movie is premiered so we can’t tell anybody what we see and hear behind these doors. My job is already cool as it is before, but when we started partnering with these comic book companies since… then, wow! It made my job even more fun,” he says with excitement. “It’s a dream come true.”

Exclusive LEGO Scooby-Doo Minifigure Polybag 30601 Found Over at eBay

81k42To9IdL._SL1500_

If you can recall, we reported that the lovable Great Dane is back in another original LEGO direct-to-dvd film, LEGO Scooby-Doo! Haunted Hollywood. Similar to other home titles such as LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Justice League Gotham City Breakout, Haunted Hollywood also comes with an exclusive, limited edition Scooby Doo minifigure. Though these films are fun to watch and make a good addition to our home theater collection, most LEGO enthusiasts will find the exclusive minifig freebie as the most enticing selling point of the films. LEGO Scooby Doo Haunted Hollywood is now listed on Amazon for those who would like to avail a copy of the film, together with the Scooby minifigure that comes along with it.

Similar to the sightings that we have on the Nightwing (30606) minifigure, Minifig Price Guide reports that the exclusive LEGO Scooby Doo also comes in a polybag with a serial number of 30601 attached to it. The Great Dane’s 2-piece polybags were found over at eBay, with a handful of sellers offering them at ridiculously high prices of $12 to $25, considering that the film itself only costs at a discounted price of $16.99 at Amazon. Obviously, Amazon offers more value for your money on this one. Here are some pics posted by sellers on eBay.

s-l1600_01 s-l1600_02

We’re not sure when until Amazon will have Haunted Hollywood on stock. As of this writing, Amazon or any other toy retailer has not listed the LEGO Scooby Doo Minifigure 30601 polybag separately. So if you’re raring to have Scooby in his minifig form without breaking the bank, the best choice as of now is to take advantage of Amazon’s discounted offer while supplies last.

 

Thanks Minifig Price Guide for the tip.

 

UPDATE: LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League Gotham City Breakout Now Available for Pre-order

gotham city break out still

Last month, we hinted on the possible release date of LEGO’s next DC Comics Super Heroes direct-to-DVD/Blu-ray feature animation, Justice League Gotham City Breakout. Here’s some good news for those who are waiting for this release. Amazon has already listed the said film for pre-order, retailing at $24.98 which will be released on June 21. This was quite close to our prediction before which is a week earlier than June 27. What most of us know already is that this LEGO DVD/Blu-ray feature comes with the exclusive Blue Nightwing minifigure. For some, this is the selling point of Gotham City Breakout, and the reason why most fans would like to get a copy of the film.

Gotham City Breakout Front Gotham City Breakout

For our friends in Europe, Amazon UK has also listed Gotham City Breakout for pre-order which will be released on a much later date of July 4. Here’s the movie’s synopsis as posted by Amazon, followed by the official movie trailer.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Gotham City Breakout (Blu-ray+DVD+Digital HD UltraViolet Combo Pack)

Batman faces his greatest challenge yet: VACATION! The caped crusader reluctantly agrees to let Batgirl and Nightwing take him on a long overdue vacation from crimefighting, while Superman and the Justice League watch over Gotham City. Neither operation goes as planned when Batman’s vacation is cut short by dangers from his past and invaders from the center of the earth, and Superman and the other Leaguers quickly realize just how much Batman usually has his hands full with the villains of Gotham.

Here’s How To Build Your Own Custom LEGO BB-8

The latest addition to the Star Wars family of droids has already left a mark on the hearts of endearing fans. The non-human but adorable BB-8 droid, with its flair for the dramatic, quickly gained a following among younger generation of Star Wars fans – not to mention a host of toys and other promotional memorabilia.

Since the last quarter of the year, the Net has been riddled with so many iterations of BB-8 either as toy figures, or actual working models, and this maybe the first attempt to create this droid from actual LEGO pieces. Sure, we know that the brick company is quick to catch on to the Star Wars hype. It even has a minifigure of BB-8 on one of its offered set. But it is yet to offer an actual challenge of building the robot itself. So while waiting for LEGO to release such a brick-built version of the newest droid on the block, let’s take a look at this custom LEGO BB-8.

One such fan took on the challenge of marrying his love for the Star Wars franchise and his love for the LEGO brick. Mashable’s Adario Stranger reports, “A Reddit user by the name of “hendrikdejager” recently posted his own LEGO version of the BB-8 droid on the site and it turned out pretty awesome. The mechanics of putting the Lego-made droid together are pretty tedious, which is why the maker posted a demonstrational how-to video (above) on YouTube on Tuesday”. Other than his video, this clever LEGO enthusiast also posted a detailed parts list for anyone else who wants to try their hand at making their own custom LEGO BB-8.

Watch this video and see if you can build one of your own.
