LEGO May 2014 Building Events

Toys R Us LEGO Star Wars Building Event

LEGO Club has published a couple of new free LEGO building events that will be happening early next month. First up is a “Build your own Star Wars Starfighter” event at all Toys R Us stores on May 3rd from 12-2pm. Kids ages 5 and up will be able to build a LEGO Star Wars Mini TIE Fighter and a Mini X-Wing, similar to the one you would get in an advent calendar.

The other building event is the LEGO Store Monthly Mini Model Build. For May, you can make a cute little dragon that breathes fire. Like with every monthly mini build, the event starts at 5pm but families usually line up for it way earlier than that. Quantities are limited and are available while supplies last.

Philly Brick Fest Only A Week Away

Philly Brick Fest 2014

Philly Brick Fest is only a week away and I’m happy to announce that I will be attending the convention and covering the event. This will be my very first LEGO event that I will be attending and I’m very excited that I can be a part of it. The convention will be held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center and opens at 10am until 5pm. If you’re in the area and you’re a LEGO fan, I highly recommend you attend it. Although you can’t buy any more tickets online, they will be available at the door. Hope to see you all there!


More Images from The Simpsons LEGO Episode “Brick Like Me”

There are now a few more images of The Simpsons LEGO episode “Brick Like Me” that come directly from the physical copy of TV Guide. We can now see more characters from the show including the whole family as well as Principal Skinner and Nelson Muntz. These images are in addition to the ones we seen on the cover and from Entertainment Weekly. Thanks to Bill Kuchman from Popculturology for the heads up.


Ghostbusters Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Project on LEGO CUUSOO

Brent Waller whose idea of the latest LEGO CUUSOO set to be released, the Ghostbusters Ecto-1, is back with another project on CUUSOO. He has listed another Ghostbusters themed project, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. As you may know, Mr. Stay Puft was chosen as the Gozer’s Destructor Form when Ray Stantz let an image of it “just pop in there.”

Brent’s version of Mr. Stay Puft stands over 34cm (13 inches) tall and has fully articulated head, arms, hands, legs, and feet. I am astonished beyond the capacity for rational thought of this project and if you have the same feeling, be sure to support the project as well. Stay tuned as Brent has given a teaser for some minifigures to be included in the future. Can you guess who they are?


The Simpsons LEGO Episode Interview on Entertainment Weekly

They also talked more about the plot and LEGO’s investment in the episode. It was mentioned that LEGO helped pay for the episode and had some input as well. Head over to EW to read more about the interview.


The LEGO Movie Experience at LEGOLAND California


Last month, I attended Star Wars Days 2014 at LEGOLAND California and while I was there, I also checked out the recently opened The LEGO Movie Experience. The LEGO Movie is now out worldwide but if you still haven’t seen the movie yet, there will be some spoilers after this point. You have been warned.

The LEGO Movie Experience is a replica of the basement area of “The Man Upstairs” which is shown at the end of the film. The area is filled with sets that were actually used in the movie including the different worlds in the movie such as Bricksburg, The Old West, Cloud Cuckoo Land, Middle Zealand, and the Octan Tower. Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! (70816) is also displayed in the space area of the basement. You can even see some nods to AFOLs such as Bruce Lowell’s donut and rubber duck. Check out images of The LEGO Movie Experience and if you’re in the San Diego area, head over to LEGOLAND and check it out in person. Pictures don’t show the place justice.
