So I was looking for the original source for the above image by Wes Talbott, and I stumbled onto something wonderful. Apparently Lego have a site where people can suggest and vote on new Lego sets and collaborations. If a project gets 10,000 votes it will be submitted to Lego for review. On this page I found that there is a submission for a Lego Zelda! And it’s reached the the required amount of support to be considered by Lego!
How did I not know that Lego were releasing a slew of TMNT playsets! These looks awesome! And there are loads of them! The re-emergence of 90’s kids TV shows sexed up for modern kids is a good thing in my opinion, and apparently the new Nickelodeon TMNT series is actually quite good.
This image by Eduardo San Gil explains what is happening behind the scenes when you play a game of Tetris to generate the seemingly random stream of blocks. It was designed for a Threadless T-Shirt which I can’t seem to find anymore. But I did see that someone (Profound Whatever to be specific) had made a simulacrum of the image in Lego:
I also noted this pretty cool Kill Bill Princes Peach crossover image:
Not Lego, no sir Blokz candles… Sigh… I don’t know why but if you’d told me just the name I would have assumed they were Tetris birthday candles… Which apparently don’t exist… You can however have Tetris Cake which is almost as good if not better because you eat it which is the second best thing to do to something after burning it.
I’ve never been a fan of Gundam, not because I dislike it for any reason, I’ve just never watched it, I do however like Neon Genesis Evangellion, and who doesn’t like Lego? This model combines all three of the above, with a hybrid Eva/Gundam mech made out of Lego. How can any sane geek not love that?
UPDATE (27-06-2012 or 06-27-2012 depending on which side of the Atlantic you happen to be on): This has recently been posted on GameFAQs and someone there pointed out that there is a Instrubtable giving you the parts list for this. I’ve also blogged about that.
If you wanted to condense my childhood toys into a single artefact you’d struggle to beat this creation by Julius of MocPages. It’s a Nintendo GameBoy made out of Lego that is also a Transformer! Based roughly on Sound Wave the detail on this piece is immense, the the batteries turn into his guns, and the Tetris Cartridge actually transforms into something that looks an aweful lot like Lazer Beak.
What’s more it’s not his only Nintendo Transformer made out of Lego, he’s also made a Nintendo Light Gun Transformer entitled PlasmaShock this looks like it’s based on the Decepticon Jet toys (Why not Megatron?):
I had ask Google who the hell Fergie was, apparently she’s famous. Anyway whoever she is she has wore a dress made almost entirely out of Lego to Nickelodeon’s annual Kids choice awards this year. That has to count for something.
The same guy who did the M.A.S.K. Lego figurines has also unsurprisingly done a set of Transformers Lego Models as evidenced above the the Optimus Prime model, which actually transforms! He’s also done a Masters of the Universe set which I can’t be bothered blogging about separately. Look a distraction!
What do you do if you can’t get real M.A.S.K. Toys? Make them yourself! Out of LEGO! WITH YOUR TEETH! Blind folded! Underwater! In the Dark!
I don’t think that’s the story behind this Flickr Set of M.A.S.K. Lego models but in my mind some impoverished kid made these because his parents refused to but them. I’m sure that my story is much more interesting than the real story which is that a 30 something guy with too much time on his hands made them…
I have to give the guy some credit, his Flickr name is Orion Pax, which as we all know was Optimus Primes name before he was damaged by Megatron so he could be rebuilt to lead a revolt against the Quintesons… You knew that right?
