– Futuristic Spaceship
– Pre-historic animals
– Modular building, corner restaurant
– Flower(s)
– Steam train (from 1923)
– Underwater creatures

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Inhumans Trailer

As we inch closer to the release of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 video game, TT Games has released a new Inhumans trailer for it. The trailer features a number of playable characters including Black Bolt, Medusa, Gorgon, Crystal, Triton, Lockjaw, and possibly Maximus. There a couple of notable members of the Inhumans who aren’t shown in the trailer like Karnak, Inferno, and Iso so we’ll have to wait and see if they make it into the game. The Inhumans will be already in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 as part of the main game so there’s no need for a DLC for it.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Earns $21.2 Million on Opening Weekend

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

The box office numbers are in for this past weekend and The LEGO Ninjago Movie opens at $21.2 million domestically which comes in third after Kingsman: The Golden Circle and It. The industry forecasted TLNM to make between $27-35 million but it stumbled out the gates and is currently at 53% on Rotten Tomatoes. The opening numbers are somewhat disappointing compared to the previous LEGO movies with The LEGO Movie opening at $69 million and The LEGO Batman Movie which opened at $53 million.

Warner Bros. had an pretty extensive marketing campaign for The LEGO Ninjago Movie which includes LEGO sets to accompany it but the movie did have more of a niche audience than the previous movies as it catered more to fans of the theme and not more of a wider audience like the other LEGO movies. As I stated in my spoiler-free review, I also felt that it wasn’t as good as TLM and TLBM but it was still decent. If you still haven’t seen it yet, I would still recommend it as it was still enjoyable but lower your expectations just a tad bit.

Wes Jenkins Passes Away (1952-2017)

We are sad to learn that Wes Jenkins, Creative Director, Writer, and Designer for LEGO Island, has passed away today. You may remember that last year that Wes was facing some financial hardship and reached out to the community for help.

Wes’ legacy is remembered here in the community with LEGO Island, LEGO Island 2, and co-founded the Learning Range at LEGO. The success of LEGO Island spawned other themes including Island Xtreme Stunts and Racers and influenced subsequent video games such as LEGO Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

Thank you to Johnathan who emailed in about this news.
