LEGOParadise has built this replica of Fallout 76's Pip-Boy 2000 MK VI, which looks just like the “real” thing, even if it isn’t quite as sturdy.
Official Lego Overwatch begins with Bastion. Standing five inches tall with the included stand, the $25 Omnic Bastion set is not a giant Lego D.Va mech, but it’s a good start. It’s available now via the Blizzard store, and will also be on sale at BlizzCon next month.
A fan tribute to Metal Gear Solid is always welcome, but when it comes with a hefty helping of Lego it is hard to ignore.
Nintendo’s Labo system was designed for use with cardboard, but LEGO designer Vimal Patel (like, he actually works at LEGO designing) has other ideas.
Lego’s been making building sets since the 1950s, but it wasn’t until 1978 that the company came up with the perfect plastic people to play in them. The Lego Minifigure was born in 1978 with a handful of designs. Forty years later, there are more than 8,000, most of them hiding in my office drawers.
This Bahamut from Final Fantasy X, built by Marius Herrmann, is an enormous one metre (3.2 feet) wide.
LEGO Voltron is now a thing, going on sale in August for $180. That’s a lotta money, but you’re at least getting 2,321 pieces worth of individual lion mechs that can transform and combine.
Lego DC Super-Villains is yet another Lego game coming this year, slated to release October 16 on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. This time you get to fight alongside the likes of Joker and Reverse Flash as a fellow super villain in the “Justice Syndicate” who you get to custom create.
I get it, there are lots of adults out there buying lots of LEGO, but for me, the best adult LEGO has always been the company’s fancy architecture series, which now has two very slick new additions.
LEGO has released some unexpected and outlandish themes over the years, and Exo-Force is certainly a standout in both regards.
2010's Tron: Legacy’s has nothing on the 1982 original in terms of character development and story, but it looked real good. It certainly makes for an attractive new addition to the Lego Ideas line of fan-created sets. You can almost hear the Daft Punk.
This fan-made Tomb Raider piece is of course not an official LEGO product. There’s a bit too much going on for that.
If nobody is going to muster the will/cash for a new video game version of Star Wars’ pod-racing, then we’re going to have to settle for this movable, interactive LEGO take on it instead.
Lego returns to JK Rowling’s Wizarding World later this year, with new sets based on the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series. Like the Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall, a $99 set featuring ten minifigures, two buildable creatures and a ridiculous amount of detail.
Man, I don’t know what it is about it, but this might be the best Lego Millennium Falcon ever.
In today’s downloadable Black Panther level for Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, Everett K. Ross is kidnapped by Erik Killmonger, setting up an epic showdown that doesn’t actually happen.
Clever artisans have been building bottled boats since the 1800s, using either long-handled tools or folding mast and sail trickery to create striking works of nautical art. Due out in February, the Lego Ideas version is more of a build-a-bottle-around-a-boat deal. Works for me.
The ever-expanding city block that is the Lego Creator Expert line of building sets gets a welcome splash of neon pink and green with the January 1 release of the Downtown Diner. It’s 2,480 plastic pieces that combine to form three floors of 1950s-style entertainment.
When we last left Lego Marvel Super Heroes, the Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four had banded together to gather the cosmic doohickeys needed to finish story mode and get to the exciting free-roaming bits. Four years later, the X-Men and Fantastic Four are gone, but everything else is pretty much the same.
Here’s World of Warcraft’s Theramore, built in LEGO by Mark Erickson.
