If Back to the Future can have a Lego set, why not Ghostbusters? A Lego Cuusoo project to celebrate the upcoming 30th anniversary of the classic comedy is currently about halfway to the 10,000 votes it needs to go before the Lego approval board. If it does, you may soon be able to purchase a Lego Ecto-1. Last year, that happened for Back to the Future and that set is hitting shelves any day now. So why not Ghostbusters?
Below, check out some images and a video of the project, plus find out where to vote. Read More »

We were thoroughly impressed by the first full-length trailer for Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s The Lego Movie, revealed earlier this month. Warner Bros. has presumably seen more of the film than we have, but they clearly like what they’ve seen so far. So much so, they want to keep playing with those little plastic minifigs on the big screen.
The studio has put into development Ninjago, based on the popular toy line from Lego. Brothers Dan and Kevin Hageman, who wrote Cartoon Network’s animated adaptation of the property, will pen the screenplay. Get the details after the jump. Read More »
Late last year, LEGO officially revealed it would be making the a set featuring the DeLorean from Back to the Future. The project was the result of a fan project on Lego Cuusoo (read the full story here) and now we finally have an update. Your first look at the actual LEGO Delorean has been revealed and it’ll reportedly be out in July. Check out some addition info below. Read More »
The team that brought you the first official Back to the Future Lego is back at it again, and this time they run on steam. Team BTTF has created a functional, unmistakably detailed Lego recreation of Doc Brown’s Jules Verne Train that appears at the end of Back to the Future Part III. The Lego Cuusso project only has a few hundred supporters at the time, and needs 10,000 to get put in front of the Lego board but, that’s bound to happen with this cool creation.
Not to be outdone, Harry Potter fan Alice Finch created a jaw-dropping, 400,000 brick, room by room recreation of Hogwarts Castle from the Harry Potter films. Check out photos of both below. Read More »
On the Internet, our capacity for amazement increases on a daily basis. It’s so easy to find incredible things from talented, devoted people that creations like a hovercraft Back to the Future Delorean or an Empire Strikes Back Hoth room might just get a passing glance. We’ve seemingly seen it all. Yet even with that in mind, I’m still blown away by what people can do with Lego.
The latest example is a stunningly detailed, fully-furnished and accessorized headquarters from Ghostbusters. It’s all there: The Ecto-1, the fire pole, Chinese food, containment unit, everything. Check out some images below. Read More »
Another day, another edition of Star Wars Bits. This week’s biggest news, so far, is the rumor that not only is Harrison Ford returning for Star Wars Episode VII, but that Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will too. Plus some combination of their kids (hopefully not Mark and Carrie’s) may be the protagonists of the film. Of course, this is about as good an educated guess as one could make considering all the facts, but now it comes from an actual source.
After the jump, read more about that as well as the following:
- The original Boba Fett, Jeremy Bulloch, is excited and willing to return in a Boba Fett spin-off or Episode VII.
- Check out footage from a cancelled Star Wars fighting video game.
- Director Bryan Singer thinks Nicholas Hoult would be a great young Han Solo.
- A new web series called Death Star PR has just launched.
- Olivia Munn reveals what she’d do to be in a Star Wars movie.
- Lego will soon release their most realistic looking X-Wing Fighter to date.
- A new photo of Carrie Fisher as Leia in the Return of the Jedi ”slave” costume has surfaced.

Almost thirty-years since its release and Back to the Future remains as popular as ever. Whether its Blu-ray box sets, Mondo posters or fan creations, we still can’t get enough of Marty McFly, Doc Brown and that time-traveling Delorean.
On that note, today is a day to rejoice for all of those Back to the Future fans still clamoring for merchandise from the franchise. Lego has officially approved, and will produce, the above Back to the Future Delorean set created on their very-own Kickstarter-esque page, Lego Cuusoo. On that site, fans design and create Legos and once 10,000 other fans endorse it, it officially goes before the Lego review board. Thursday, Lego officially announced this set had been approved for 2013 release.
See the annoucnement video, video of the set, more photos and more after the jump. Read More »
