Fans of both Ghostbusters and LEGO had their wildest dreams come true earlier this year when an official set for the firehouse that acts as the paranormal exterminators’ headquarters was released. It was a massive (and expensive) set, and having bought and built it myself, I can tell you it was one of the most fun sets to put together. But the new Ghostbusters headquarters should have their own LEGO set too, right?
We already know there’s an official LEGO set of the new Ecto-1 on the way, featuring minifigures of all four of the new Ghostbusters, as well as their secretary Kevin, who comes with the Ecto-2 motorcycle, and even a demon ghost. But LEGO fans need a set that will house the reboot’s vehicle, and one master builder has them covered with a new project at LEGO Ideas.

Pretty much everyone knows there’s a new Ghostbusters movie coming to theaters this summer. The jury is out as to whether or nor director Paul Feig can deliver an entertaining update of the 1984 classic, this time with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the lead roles (meet all the ladies right here). We’ll find out in about a month whether this will be the successful start of a new franchise. Until then, we have another Ghostbusters project for you to feast your eyes on.
Animators and LEGO master builders from Digital Wizardz this cute and extremely impressive stop-motion LEGO Ghostbusters short film, bringing some of the more iconic scenes from the film to life in brick form. In addition, there are actually some pretty amusing gags and nods to other properties like Star Wars, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Simpsons.

It’s already an exciting time to be a Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan, with the movie-mocking show getting a revival thanks to the success of a very popular Kickstarter that wrapped up late last year. But there’s a chance it could get even better if this custom LEGO set becomes a reality.
LEGO master builder JMaster put together this Mystery Science Theater 3000 LEGO set which is a LEGO Ideas project that will hopefully get enough votes to have a crack at becoming an official set. Check out the MST3K LEGO set below. Read More »
The LEGO Technic line allows master builders to create working robots and other creations with moving parts, but now a custom LEGO Ideas project is hoping to bring a cinematic robot to life with building blocks, just without all the complicated moving parts.
Johnny Five is the lovable, curious robot from the ’80s classic Short Circuit. And while technology would certainly allow for someone to build their own Johnny Five pretty easily today, it would be much easier if you were able to build a LEGO Johnny Five. That’s what master builder PepaQuin is hoping happens with his custom creation, and the good news is this project is already on its way to hopefully becoming an official set.

For me, there’s something that’s not only fun but almost relaxing about building a cool vehicle or building from various pop culture worlds out of LEGO pieces. Whether it’s the Ghostbusters firehouse or the Batcave from the 1966 Batman TV series, I just love piecing together a LEGO set. And if you’re a fan of Voltron, you’ll want to support this latest LEGO Ideas proposal.
A new custom Voltron LEGO set not only allows you to build the robot from LEGO bricks, but it allows you to assemble the robot from five individual LEGO lions, just like Voltron. Check out the Voltron LEGO set after the jump. Read More »
Earlier this year, an official LEGO set was revealed for the 1966 Batman secret lair known as the Batcave. It comes with Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin, as well as their signature Batmobile, Batcycle and Batcopter. It’s on sale now and you can see photos of it right here. But one fan decided he wanted his own modern LEGO Batcave, and he really went all out for it.
Master builder Dan Glasure created an 18,000-piece LEGO Batcave that is extremely intricate and detailed, including vehicles like the Batmobile and Batjet from Tim Burton’s feature films. But even more impressive is the fact that it exists under an equally intricate LEGO Wayne Manor. See some photos of the custom creation below. Read More »
In addition to the LEGO minifgures that come with the various building block playsets, the toy company has also been selling individual minifigures. However, rather than being able to choose which minifigures you want to buy, you have to take your chances by buying them blind and hope you get one you don’t have yet. Or you can be the person who stands in the aisle and tries to feel the little plastic packages to determine if you’re getting the figure you want.
Anyway, if you’re a Disney fan, you’re probably going to be interested in the latest series of minifigures that will give some of Disney’s most famous animated characters the building block treatment. There’s a series of 18 new LEGO Disney minifigures featuring characters from The Incredibles, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and more. Read More »
Back in February, we got word from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm that LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens was coming to video game consoles this summer. The first trailer delivered an amusing spoof of the first teaser trailer for the movie, and now a new gameplay trailer shows how the movie has been spiced up a bit with some trademark LEGO goofiness, not to mention the cool game modes available to be played.

We’re champions of plenty of projects that pop up over at the LEGO Ideas website. For those who don’t know, it’s a community of LEGO builders who create custom sets that they hope will be supported by community and eventually make it in front of the official LEGO board for approval to become a legitimate set sold in stores. A set needs 10,000 votes to make it in front of the board, but that’s no guarantee of production since the company still has to determine whether they can get the rights to make the set and if there’s even a viable market for it to be sold in.
Thankfully, it has been determined that an Adventure Time LEGO set is a good idea, and it will be put into production. That’s pretty mathematical. Check out the set below! Read More »
If you keep up regularly with /Film, then you know we’re pretty big LEGO fans, especially when it comes to sets that are inspired by our favorite movies and TV shows. Whether it’s official sets like the forthcoming Echo Base playset from The Empire Strikes Back or custom sets like this transforming Optimus Prime set. But have you ever wondered how many bricks it would take to make lifesize LEGO versions of some of the most iconic sci-fi weapons and vehicles?
Well, even if you haven’t wondered how many LEGO bricks it would take to make a full size Millennium Falcon or Ecto-1, someone took the time to figure it out, and they laid out their results in a cool infographic. Read More »
