Try Not To Cringe With This Ultra-Realistic LEGO Facehugger MOC

There are some things that keep you awake at night – and I guess there’s another one that I will add up to my list. What you’re about to see is not a still photo from the next film from the classic sci-fi Alien franchise, but an ultra-realistic MOC that was spawned by the creative mind of LEGO builder mordatre. I have to say that if there are such things as brick-built nightmares, this is LEGO Facehugger MOC is the stuff that it’s made of. It can easily pass as a good Halloween prank if seen from afar. I love this shot where it seems to come alive as it ‘crawls’ up the stairs.

LEGO Facehugger

 

The Bionicle parts used to build the facehugger was really spot on and helped create a highly articulate and posable model of the vicious parasite. The choice of color for the exoskeleton was also very reminiscent of the alien facehugger as it is seen in the alien cult classic.

The attention to detail that mordatre gave to this terrying brick-creation is simply awesome. Even up-close, his creation still evokes some sort of a primal response that will make you want to torch the little bugger right away. The clever use of Technic and Bionicle parts in this build gives it a very intricate and organic look.

 

I’m pretty sure if mordatre can figure away on how to motorize this MOC, then I will definitely have second thoughts before coming close to brick-built LEGO Facehugger MOC. Thanks to Brothers Brick for the heads-up.

Exclusive Full Length Animated Short LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape Now Available Online.

Jurassic World made waves last year in the box office with an uber cool upgraded version of the park and a mean, highly intelligent hybrid the Indominus Rex.  LEGO saw the potential of the film translated in LEGO brick form and came up with 6 sets under the theme, with 2 promotional bags to go along with it, PLUS an exclusive animated short entitled LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape that goes along with the 2-pack special DVD version of the film. The said LEGO Jurassic World sets are still up for retail at shop.LEGO.com and just recently, LEGO and Universal Pictures have posted the 30-minute animated short online, dividing it into 6-mini-series including a teaser trailer. Watch the full playlist starting with the trailer below, then followed by its official synopsis.

In LEGO Jurassic World: The lndominus Escape, two of the most beloved brands of all time come together like never before!

When Simon Masrani accidentally destroys one of the park’s main attractions (he really should learn how to fly that helicopter), he calls upon his trusted employee Claire to save the day. Alter some quick Dino-DNA building in Dr. Wu’s lab, Claire comes up with the perfect solution that is sure to delight Masrani and kids everywhere – the lndominus rex- the smartest, biggest and scariest hot dog-loving hybrid dinosaur ever created!

Unfortunately, disaster strikes after the lndominus eats all the hot dogs and escapes from its pen in a hungry rage. It’s now up to the talented and rugged dinosaur trainer Owen Grady to save the day and battle the lndominus rex in an epic, action-packed finale!

Here Are More Updates From The LEGO DC Comics Rumor Mill!

Last month, we had a sneak peek at LEGO’s massive rumored sets slated to hit next year, including those under the DC Comics line. Thanks to LEGO insiders CM4Sci and Just2good, we now have an idea on how these sets will be like and they all seem to be pretty impressive. Though these are all treated as rumors and speculations, these legends have a pretty good track record when it comes to accurately describing what they see in LEGO’s crystal ball.

Taking hint from DC Comics’ newest line of famous female superheroes and super-villains typified in their teen years, LEGO’s iteration of DC’s Super Hero Girls consists of sets focusing on characters such as that of Batgirl, Lashida, Bumblee, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn. Here’s how CM4Sci describes them over at Eurobricks.

I’ve seen the sets, and they’re a lot better than I thought they’d be.
dc-superhero-girls

General facts:
Each set comes with a small, weird crystal-like villain build. Packaging is blue and sparkly, it looks very nice. There will be a 22-minute TV special, and 6 three-minute shorts. Release in February.

41230 – Batgirl’s Batjet – a small and round Batwing, it actually looks really neat. It uses the round UFO corners as the wings in a dark blue. In front is a pretty well hidden net launcher. Batgirl is in no way final but she’s sitting in the jet. There’s a small buggy for the yellow bad guy, who seems to be holding a phone?

41231 – Harley Quinn’s Cafe Rescue (?) – has a small, two floor cafe build labelled ‘Capes & Cowls’ Harley Quinn is on a flying net shooter with wings. The piece usually used for net launchers is the middle. Steve (is that his name?) is captured in a vine on the top floor. There’s a green crystal baddie included

41232 – The High School! – It looks so cool. It features a giant central tower with stickers that give off the perspective that it’s growing to a sharp point. Each side has a small part of the school with a flex tube used to create a cool design for the window. On top there’s a giant pink diamond. Now, what’s cool about this is that the entire center tower can be opened up to let loose Poison Ivy’s bike that shoots flowers! It creates a giant ramp. I don’t know who the bad guy is but they’re in a small, black/purple flying jet with a giant claw in front, flying towards the pink diamond. There are things like disc shooters to fight off the bad guys. The set comes with Supergirl, Poison Ivy, a creature Poison Ivy has created, Bad Guy, and 2 crystal baddies.

41233 – Lashida’s Action Rider – is in a small wheeled vehicle she sits on that is shoots studs at Krypto’s doghouse (uses Jasmine as a stand-in). Krypto uses a generic Friends dog but I’m sure there’ll be a new piece for him. Comes with Lashida, Krypto, and blue crystal bad creature

41234 – Bumblebee’s Helicopter – has a small spherical, dual rotor helicopter. The crystal guys are carrying a trunk full of yellow stuff. Comes with Bumblebee and two red crystal bad creatures.

41235 – Wonder Woman’s Dorm – has a closet, a bed with window, and a desk in patriotic colors. The transparent motorcycle sits atop a spinning platform. Wonder Woman comes with her lasso and is fighting an orange crystal creature.

The sets honestly look way better than I thought they would be, and the packaging just makes it even better!

 

In a similar vein, Just2good also dropped in his own predictions of what we can expect from LEGO and its partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures. With the film giant steadily building its DC’s Extended Universe, we can also expect the LEGO Group coming up with sets dedicated to these super hero films. We saw how LEGO came up with sets related to that of Superman’s return to the big screen back in 2013 with Man of Steel, particularly with Superman: Metropolis Showdown (76002), Superman: Battle of Smallville (76003) and Superman: Black Zero Escape (76009). The more recent Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice also received the LEGO treatment with three sets namely Clash of the Heroes (76044), Kryptonite Interception (76045), and Heroes of Justice: Sky High Battle (76046). This time, Just2good pulls off the veil a little and gives us a peak on what LEGO has in store with Warner Bros’ next offering with the Amazonian Princess Diana in Wonder Woman. To quote, here’s Just2good’s prediction:

lego-batman-3_wonderwoman_01

We will be getting a Wonder Woman movie set in 2017 – albeit an exclusive (like the Doctor Strange set), but it really makes me happy we’ll be getting at least one. Almost confident it’s minifigure based and under the DC Super Heroes line, but the only facts I know is that it’s coming and its exclusive.

 

That being the case, then this singular, LEGO Wonder Woman set will be LEGO’s second exclusive movie-based offering similar to that of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060). We don’t have any updates yet on what particular scene this LEGO set will depict but we are confident that somebody knows about it out there considering the planning and amount of time required for LEGO designers to come up with a final set.

Finally, just in time before the cinematic version of the Justice League hits theaters in November of 2017, CM4Sci shares another juicy hint:

lego-justice-league-02

Lemme make it even better! We’re not getting one, not two, but THREE JUSTICE LEAGUE sets next summer!

 

CM4Sci’s hint seems to echo what LEGO has come up with in relation to Man of Steel and Batman VS Superman. Again, with regards to how these sets may possibly look like is still a mystery known only to a select few LEGO designers and top brass, most likely kept mum by a strict disclosure agreement. The truth is certainly out there!

So how do you think these sets will look like? What sets are you most excited about? Share us your predictions in the comments below or drop by our Facebook page and join in the discussions.

It’s Sensei VS Bird In This Teaser Clip From LEGO Ninjago Movie Short: “The Master”.

A few weeks ago, we mentioned that the LEGO Ninjago Movie will have a sort of a teaser preview in cinemas along with the release of Warner Bros. Animation, Storks. Following LEGO’s brand of humor, the said LEGO Ninjago Movie short entitled ‘The Master’, will feature Sensei Wu as he squares off against a feathered foe, The Chicken. Voiced by the legendary Jackie Chan himself, the wise-cracking Sensei Wu must rise up and prove himself as a worthy kung fu master by taking on a seemingly harmless bird.

Thanks to USA Today, we now have a glimpse on how Sensei Wu’s encounter with pesky, plastic chicken may turn out. Other than showcasing the Master’s fighting prowess, the teaser gives us a general look and feel on how the LEGO Ninjago Movie will play out. Check the teaser below.

It’s sort of shocking albeit funny, to see how a chicken can bring down a temple while slamming Sensei Wu to the ground. As it seems, the famed kung fu master has found his match against a clucking chicken voiced by actress comedienne Abbi Jacobson, who happens also to be the voice behind femme fatale Nya.

636084612033493662-njg-mstr-0001 636084611227124493-njg-mstr-0015

Following in the tradition of the LEGO Movie, the LEGO Ninjago movie brings a new look and feel in animation style. As Brickset points out, while the structures used in the film seem to be made entirely of animated LEGO elements, new organic foliage and clouds have been introduced as well giving it a backyard feel and experience.

636084611960329193-njg-mstr-0007

The LEGO Ninjago Movie short is a humorous study in contrast between the control-obsessed kung fu master and the flightless harbinger of chaos. Director Jon Sunders, who also wrote ‘The Master’ together with Ross Evans, says “My writing partner and I went really off the wall showing Master Wu desperately wanting to star in his own short film, but this chicken keeps coming in and not allowing him to have his moment”. Ross further explains, “It’s control vs. chaos. Wu is this character very much in control of his entire world, almost obsessive-compulsive (about) maintaining perfect order. Chicken is free-flow and chaos. When Master Wu accepts that it’s OK his temple got ruined, that nothing is perfect, that’s when they come into harmony.” So how’s that for an object lesson. I guess no one is too old to learn a thing or two from a little, ‘harmless’ bird.

636084611307153006-njg-mstr-0004

The LEGO Ninjago Movie is slated to hit theaters next year, September 22, 2017. The film tells the story of six young ninja tasked with defending their island home, called Ninjago. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skill and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters. By day, they’re ordinary teens, struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.

New LEGO Ninjago Short Set To Hit Theaters Alongside Warner Bros’ ‘Storks’.

Warner Animation Group’s next big screen offering, Storks, is slated to hit theaters next month, and it seems that the 3D computer animated film is not the only star of the show. The Hollywood Reporter recently revealed that Warner Bros will also give audiences a glimpse of what to expect on its much anticipated LEGO Ninjago Movie ahead of its showing in 2017. Featuring a new animated short entitled The Master: A LEGO Ninjago Short, we’ll see Master Wu square off with an unlikely nemesis, simply called the ‘Chicken’. THR further reports that legendary Jackie Chan will debut as Master Wu in the said short, with Abbi Jacobson starring as the Chicken with Justin Theroux narrating. Theroux is also slated to voice Garmandon in the main LEGO Ninajago Movie.

The_Lego_Ninjago_Movie

Here’s the rest of THR’s report:

From Warner Bros. Pictures and WAG, in association with Lego System A/S, the five-minute short was directed by Jon Saunders, from a screenplay by Saunders and Ross Evans and story by Saunders, Evans, Carey Yost and Remington D. Donovan. Ryan Halprin produced.

The short announcement follows news that Chan, Jacobson and Theroux have all joined the voice cast for The Lego Ninjago Movie, which will also feature Chan voicing Wu and Jacobson voicing a ninja. Theroux will play Garmadon in The Lego Ninjago Movie, which has a Sept. 22, 2017, release date.

Following the success of 2014’s The Lego Movie, directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (who are executive producers of Storks, The Master and The Lego Ninjago Movie), WAG also intends to release spinoff feature The Lego Batman Movie, also planned for a 2017 release, as well as a Lego Movie sequel, slated for 2019.

Building on the success of The LEGO Movie and the high anticipation of fans for the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie, Warner Bros is also banking on one of LEGO’s original theme once it hits theaters on September 22, 2017. The LEGO Group also seems to be confident on how movie-going fans in general will receive the LEGO Ninjago Movie by adding several rumored sets and a line of collectible minifigures under its banner. Here’s a brief synopsis of the movie as we previously reported.

Thank You Kenny Baker For Giving Us Artoo – Looking Back At LEGO’s R2-D2.

Kenny-Baker-R2D2-Star-Wars

It’s a sad Saturday for the legion of the faithful scattered throughout the Star Wars galaxy, when Kenny Baker at almost 82 years old, passed away in Lanchashire, England. Kenny, also known as Kenneth George Baker, is best known for his portrayal of the endearing astromech droid R2-D2 in the Star Wars saga. Personally operating Artoo in all of the 6 Star Wars films, Kenny became sort of an icon, a legend to all Star Wars fans, for giving a distinct personality to the most beloved astromech in the world. Whether shaking because of excitement, or turning around his dome-shaped head out of disdain and amusing contempt towards fellow droid C-3PO, Kenny was able to brilliantly  bring Artoo into life and winning the hearts of many along the way. True enough, Kenny was an excellent performer and actor, and he will always be remembered as the person that gave a heart and soul to the most popular robotic companion in the world.

In honor of this great man who made this Star Wars legend possible, let’s take a look at the many times Artoo made its appearance in LEGO minifigure form throughout the years. Since 1999, R2-D2 has left his mark in 36 LEGO Star Wars set according to Brickset. Over the years, we’ve seen some slight variations in printing over the minifig version of Artoo however his standard, 4-piece design has always been the same. Though these pieces and elements that makes up the iconic LEGO R2-D2 is also used in recreating some of the droids in the LEGO Star Wars theme, R2-D2 has always remained the most popular astromech minifigure across all LEGO Star Wars sets, and here are all the minifigure renditions of Artoo as he appears in them. Thanks to Brickset for all the images.

To some extent, we have Kenny Baker to thank for in making R2-D2 as one of the most prolific LEGO Star Wars minifigures around. Kenny will remain a much loved personality as the astromech that he portrayed and forever immortalized in the annals of LEGO history. Though Kenny is no longer with us, he will always be remembered in all six Star Wars films as the humble little person who breathed who gave life and a personality  to the most famous astromech in this side of the galaxy.

More LEGO Batman Movie Rumored Sets That We Picked Up.

We recently featured a load of rumored LEGO sets – more than a hundred fifty to be exact – that are expected to debut in 2017 and covered almost all of LEGO’s active themes and upcoming movies as well. Two of these sets have been unveiled already with the announcement of the LEGO Batman Movie: The Batmobile (70905) and The Joker’s Notorious Lowrider (70906), and if we will take these reported rumors as true, then we can expect plenty more sets to arrive considering that there is a total of 15 expected sets that LEGO will release that will surely make the Caped Crusader beaming with smiles.

Other than the 2 confirmed sets mentioned above, LEGO is still understandably mum on the rest of the LEGO Batman Movie sets. However, LEGO insider Delta Customs may give us some hints on the shape of things to come. He shared several descriptions of these sets over at his Instagram account and credits them to a certain ‘Captain Unicorn’ (now, that’s something that you don’t hear everyday).

First off, is a possible LEGO Batman Movie Arkham Asylum that is expected to retail at around $100. According to Delta Customs, the size of this revamped ‘treatment center’ for Gotham’s criminally deranged villains will be almost as that of its predecessor, the LEGO DC Universe Superheroes Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout (10937) released in 2013. However, this newer version will be based primarily on how the Asylum will be portrayed in the LEGO Batman Movie. What is interesting about the set is its sheer number of villains rendered in their minifigure forms. The rumored LEGO Batman Movie Arkham Asylum will feature a total of 12 minifigures: Batman, Barbara Gordon, Aaron Cash, 2 Arkham Guards, Harleen Quinzel (presumably in her professional outfit), Joker, Two-Face, the Riddler, and three more unnamed villains. The villains in this set are said to be in garbed in Arkham’s jumpsuits.

Next is a newer rendition of the Batcave as we saw it featured in the trailers. The supposedly new LEGO Batman Movie Batcave will particularly boast of with tons details such as the various Bat costumes of the Caped Crusader, a walkway leading to the Batcomputer similar to how it was shown in the official trailer, and an Alfred minifigure. Other highlights of the set include the Batboat and a brick-built duck ride for the Penguin and several of his arctic bird minions similar to that of the Wildlife Photographer as seen from LEGO’s CMF Series 16. The little penguins are seen carrying some attachments on their back.

In addition to this, we’ll be seeing the LEGO Batman Movie Batwing, though this one is different from the one seen in the trailer and is shaped more like a bat. The plane’s cockpit is the head of the bat, and a Poison Ivy minifigure will be included in the set.

Killer Croc is slated to be featured in the movie and he will also have a set dedicated to him. The LEGO Batman Movie Killer Croc Swamp set will feature a big fig version of the reptilian powerhouse, and it is rumored that this bigfig rendition will be as big as that of the Rancor as seen in LEGO Star Wars Rancor Pit 75005. That will be a huge plus point for this set in case this rumor turns out to be true. The Killer Croc Swamp set also comes with a buildable red pick up truck, swamp like builds, including a unique animal skull, and minifigures of Batman, Zebra Man, and Tarantula.

Other tidbits of info that Delta Customs shared about some of the sets also include:

  • A Mr. Freeze minifig in an exo-suit, Batman, and a hostage belonging to one of the smaller sets.
  • The Penguin will also get ‘a really cool car’, one that will rival Joker’s Notorious Lowrider.
  • Plenty of new, random minifigures: Tarantula, Zebra Man, Kite Man, Calendar Man.
  • Plenty of vehicles to go around for villains.

It will certainly be great to see these vehicles have their own sets.

In similar news, several sources over at Eurobricks also mention that a Catwoman bike set will also make its appearance and the one which most of us are waiting for, is a complete line up of collectible minifigures dedicated to the LEGO Batman Movie. It is reported to comprise of 20 minifigures instead of the usual 16.

Like any other rumor, we always everyone to bear in mind that these are all predictions and speculations unless the LEGO Group releases their official announcement. However, knowing that there are some folks who usually turn out to be 99% accurate in their predictions surely gives us something to look forward to.

Be sure to keep tabs with the LEGO Batman Movie’s official website for official announcements and other cool stuff. So what do you think about these rumors and predictions? What are you most excited about all of these? Share us your thoughts in the comments section below. Thanks to the Brick Fan for the tip.
