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. Check out the custom LEGO Mad Max Fury Road vehicles after the jump! Read More »

For Star Wars fans and Lego collectors, one of the holy grail pieces is the 5,195 piece Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon. Originally priced at about $500, it now can sell for almost 10 times that because of its rarity, and the set’s incredible detail. It’s one of the biggest and most beautiful Lego sets in history.
Yet it pales in comparison to this latest fan creation.
A team of Lego builders called Titans Creations have created a 10,000 piece Millennium Falcon that’s physically 40% bigger than the official set and features multiple scenes from the movie within. Check out the amazing custom Lego Millennium Falcon below. Read More »

The video game market is some competitive, everyone is always looking for something different.

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.

The fact there’s a Lego Jurassic World video game coming out pretty exciting. What’s even more exciting is it’ll tell a story that spans all four Jurassic Park movies. Out this June, the Lego Jurassic World game just released a new trailer that shows iconic scenes from the original films reimagined in that trademark Lego way. You’ll hear the actual voices of Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, but unfortunately get no real sense of what to expect in terms of the fourth movie, Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World.
