Major Kusinagi's climactic fight against the Alakuneda Think Tank in the original Ghost in the Shell is easily one of the best fight scenes in modern anime. Now, that arm-shearing battle has gotten a bit cuter with a think tank made from stock LEGO bricks.
I love all the new Lego Lord of the Rings' minifigs, but I have one favorite: Gollum. They truly captured his creepy nature, yet he still looks cute. My favorite detail, however, are the two faces of Frodo, showing his transformation through the story.
The new Lego Batcave is so neat. It is modeled after the original comicbooks and uses the classic blue Batman. Its coolest feature is the Bat-Gear part, where Bruce Wayne turns into Batman. It's so stupidly neat it's awesome.
Among all the Lego surprises at Toy Fair 2012, there's a cool new Star Wars set called Droid Escape. It's the pod in which C-3PO and R2-D2 use to land on Tatooine in the original movie. It includes these two stormtroopers, which are amazingly detailed.
Since most of us are far handier with a pile of Legos than tools, lumber, and raw upholstery, Japanese design studio Torafu Architects has created these large scale foam building blocks that making assembling furniture easier than an Ikea bookshelf.
Rejoice fellows of the Lego ring, because we got the first look of the Lego Lord of the Rings sets coming out this year. And they are amazing, from the Mines of Moria—cave troll included!—to Helm's Deep to Shelob!
Rejoice! Lego has sent us all the official images of all the Lego Lord of the Rings minifigs. They include the first look of the awesome Gollum, the Ringwraiths, the Uruk-hais, Moria Orcs and the Mordor Orcs.
After the incoming Lego Minecraft, the other big Lego franchise that nerds everywhere are dying to get is Lego Lord of the Rings. This is the first view of its minifigs, captured by Huw Millington at London's Toy Fair.
I'm constantly floored by what people choose to make with Lego. Why craft a life-sized Halo sniper rifle or a Saturn V and not something else? I've got plans of my own, and now Moleskine's got the perfect, fanboy-ready notebook to document them in.
Captain Kyle Ugone isn't just a Navy bruiser—he's a man of finesse, and a lover of small plastic bricks. So much so that he's erected a staggering 1,091 Lego sets, earning him the title of world champion.
