With summer passing by, the buzz surrounding Jurassic World has died down a bit, but though the film keeps breaking box office records. A new generation of kids has been wowed by dinosaurs on the big screen while fans of the original Jurassic Park have also been fairly impressed by the sequel, and both of those groups wants toys from the franchise.
While there are already official LEGO sets out there for Jurassic World, they’re not exactly anything to write home about. Some of the LEGO sets feature vehicles that don’t even appear in the movie, and the dinosaur figures leave something to be desired, too. That’s why one fan has created a couple LEGO Ideas projects delivering a much better LEGO version of the Indominus rex, as well as a throwback LEGO set for the Ford Explorer from the original Jurassic Park.

If for some reason you’ve seen Star Wars but you haven’t yet partaken of Mel Brooks‘ classic parody Spaceballs, it’s about time you fixed that. In classic Mel Brooks fashion, Spaceballs mocks everything about Star Wars with self-referenctial humor, fourth wall breaks, and jokes about sci-fi tropes and goofy characters like Dark Helmet. It’s a favorite among comedy fans and sci-fi fans alike.
And now there’s the chance to partake in wise Yogurt’s noble endeavor of merchandising. One fan at LEGO Ideas has crafted two custom LEGO sets that give two of the iconic spacecrafts from Spaceballs the building block treatment. You can help vote to make them a reality.

Since Jurassic World is all the rage right now, there’s been plenty of nostalgia looking back at the original Jurassic Park. But we’ve yet to see a resurgence of toys dedicated to the original Steven Spielberg dinosaur adventure. However, that could change with a little bit of help from fans.
There’s a project that just surfaced at LEGO Ideas that has an awesome building block version of the visitor center from Jurassic Park. It’s an impressive set that actually has some pretty clever moving parts that allow you to see inside the visitor center, where more than a few pivotal locations from the film have been recreated.

If you’re a fan of both LEGO and Marvel, then you’ve likely enjoyed the two brands teaming up for a variety of LEGO sets inspired by both the comic books and the cinematic universe. However, sometimes the official merchandise for a particular brand can be a little disappointing. And there are some fans who just weren’t impressed with the LEGO set that recreated the Hulkbuster armor from The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Thankfully, a LEGO and Marvel fan has taken it upon himself to build a different LEGO Hulkbuster, one that’s a little beefier and more worthy of battling Hulk. And there’s even a chance that you can get your hands on it. Check out the custom LEGO Hulkbuster after the jump! Read More »
Here at /Film, we’re big fans of anything having to do with LEGO. That includes real LEGO sets like the recent Kwik-E-Mart release from The Simpsons, custom LEGO sets such as this massive 10,000 piece Millennium Falcon, and even video games like the forthcoming LEGO Jurassic World. So you can imagine how excited we were to find out that one LEGO fan built some custom sets paying tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road.
A Flickr user going by the name “LEGO Will” has built some incredible custom LEGO Mad Max: Fury Road vehicles, including the rogue War Rig commandeered by Imperator Furiosa. In addition, there’s also a rather interesting variation on Immortan Joe’s modified 1959 Cadillac that fans of another popular film franchise will appreciate.

Three things I love: Star Wars, Lego and posters. So I just about flipped when I saw that Lego had recreated Drew Struzan‘s posters for the first six Star Wars films. There’s no real rhyme or reason behind it, other than these six movies are now available digitally for the first time ever, but they’re still super cool. Check out the Lego Star Wars posters below.
