The LEGO Movie Website Updated

The LEGO Movie Site

The official LEGO Movie website has been updated a lot since I last time I’ve visited. There are now a lot more things to do on there including new games, downloads, and interactive activities.

Last month, we only had one game called Brick Bust. There are now a number of new games that you can play including ones called “Get Dressed,” “Batman’s First Try,” “Submarine,” “Scramble,” and “Sink Hole.” There’s also on called “Game Builder” where you can either play games on levels that other players built or you can create your own that level for others to play on. In addition, there is an activity book to download that is filled with various activities.

Get Dressed is a simple game where you match up as many characters as possible before time runs out.

The LEGO Movie Get Dressed

Batman’s First Try lets you play as Batman and you have to hit as many red buttons before the timer hits zero.

The LEGO Movie Batman's First Try

Submarine is a game where you have to put the pieces in the right spots to fill the leaks of the submarine to save the heroes from drowning.

Scramble is a puzzle game where you have to solve each puzzle in as few moves as possible.

The LEGO Movie Scramble

Sink Hole is a game where you use the mouse to help guide Emmet down the sink hole and avoid the pipes.

The LEGO Movie Sink Hole

In addition to all the games you can play on the site, there is also the SigFig Creator where you can create your own minifigure of yourself. Now you can use your SigFig and put him/her into The LEGO Movie trailer. The trailer replaces Emmet’s character with your own character. Here’s a link of my character. You can also download a MP4 copy of it so you can have it forever.

Overall, there are a lot of things to do on the site until the movie is released in a few weeks. Plus don’t forget about all the LEGO sets you can build while waiting.

More LEGO Marvel and DC Universe DUPLO 2014 Set Details

1

Vriverajr3 on Eurobricks has posted some preliminary images from a retailer catalog of the new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes X-Men set as well as the LEGO DC Universe DUPLO sets. On the Marvel side, the image shows Wolverine in his classic yellow and brown costume with his cowl on while fighting a Sentinel. The Sentinel looks very basic at this point and I expect it will be improved when the product comes out. So far, we now have Magneto, Storm, classic Wolverine, and a Sentinel as some of the characters of the X-Men sets.

For the DC DUPLO sets, there are images of the Joker in The Joker Challenge (10544), Batman in a small Batmobile, and also in a Batwing. The figures have the usual oval heads and larger bodies. These sets are for children ages 2-5.

Again, all of these sets are preliminary images so we can expect the final products to be vastly improved on.
