Fans of both LEGO and Star Wars already know that there’s an official version of the Sandcrawler from Star Wars: A New Hope available for purchase. It’s a pretty impressive and expensive set that has over 3,200 pieces. But it’s nothing compared to the massive custom creation put together by two master builders.
LEGO superfans Jarren Harkema and Calvin Hartley have crafted a LEGO Technic replica of the Sandcrawler that is three feet long, weighs 28 pounds, and is made up of over 10,000 pieces. And because it’s a LEGO Technic creation, it can actually be driven around. Check out the custom LEGO Sandcrawler after the jump! Read More »

If you’re a frequent reader of SlashFilm, you know that we love LEGO, and we love even more when the building block toy gets blended with our favorite films. Whether it’s an official Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set or a custom Jurassic Park visitor center, we like seeing the building blocks come together to make things from the movies we love.
Therefore, our interest is piqued by the forthcoming video game LEGO Dimensions, a new collectible figure video game which combines the likes of Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, Batman (and other DC Comics heroes), The LEGO Movie, Ninjago and even The Wizard of Oz.
And now a new trailer has arrived online, showing the story behind how all these different franchises came to be mixed up with each other. But the real highlight is seeing Batman fight another Batman. Watch the LEGO Dimensions trailer after the jump! Read More »
While Hasbro’s Transformers are some of the most popular toys on the planet, and have been since the 1980s, the Autobots and Decepticons have yet to roll out in LEGO form. But one LEGO fan has changed that.
LEGO Master Builder and Flickr user Savelsberg has created a LEGO version of the iconic Autobot leader Optimus Prime, who usually turns into a semi-truck. And while you might expect this to just be a LEGO version of the truck form of Optimus Prime, believe it or not, this custom LEGO creation actually turns into the robot form of the Transformer.

Since Jurassic World got everybody talking about Jurassic Park all over again, we’ve seen some pretty cool custom LEGO creations hit the web, hoping to one day become real sets. There’s an awesome LEGO version of the visitor center from the first movie we featured, and sets for the iconic Ford Explorer and new Indominus Rex from Jurassic World too.
But since these sets aren’t always easy to get approved, sometimes because of their lack of wide appeal to a variety of LEGO consumers, other times because of licensing or potential pricing, one LEGO builder has created a microscale Jurassic Park LEGO set that could be affordable and appealing.

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.

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 »
