1

In celebration of next year’s “The LEGO Batman Movie,” LEGO has constructed a 286-pound Batman statue for San Diego Comic Con’s Warner Bros. booth. It stands at approximately 6.9 feet tall, 4.8 feet wide and is made up of a whopping 53,998 LEGO bricks.

Creating the breakout star from 2014’s “The LEGO Movie” took the Danish toy company’s master builders a total of 385 hours to design and build the model.

Will Arnett returns to voice the Caped Crusader in the upcoming film, which is scheduled for release on February 10, 2017. The movie also stars Michael Cera as Robin, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl and Zach Galifianakis as The Joker.

A life-size version of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, one of the most iconic heroines of all time, will be on display in LEGO brick form at Comic Con next week.

To mark the character’s 75th anniversary and her upcoming solo movie, DC is pulling out all the stops, including displays of Lynda Carter’s 1970s Wonder Woman TV costume and Gadot’s costume for the upcoming feature film. Gadot will also be on hand to sign autographs.

The most staggering sight will likely be a massive, life-sized Lego statue of Wonder Woman. The model stands a shade over 6’1″ and contains 22,736 Lego bricks, weighing 138 pounds with its circular base. It took 99 hours to design and another 218 hours to build.

Help Make This LEGO Spaceballs Eagle 5 Winnebago A Real Thing!

1

You are looking at Captain Lone Starr’s spaceship the ‘Eagle 5’ and yes; it’s a Winnebago with wings! The space ship is used to save Princess Vespa from the evil President Skroob and Dark Helmet.

In 1986, comedy director, writer and actor Mel Brooks came with the science fiction parody film: Spaceballs. In 2016 it will be the 30th anniversary of Spaceballs! So let’s make it a good one with a Spaceball LEGO set!  Yogurt would say: “Merchandising, merchandising, where the real money from the movie is made. Spaceballs-the T-shirt, Spaceballs-the Coloring Book, Spaceballs-the Lunch box, Spaceballs-the Breakfast Cereal, Spaceballs-the Flame Thrower.” And now possibly a Spaceballs-the LEGO set!

The set will include the ‘Eagle 5’ and Captain Lone Starr with his Schwartz-saber. Also included are the secret hyper jets in the rear of the ‘Eagle 5’! (No one will expect a Winnebago having secret hyper jet, not even Dark helmet). The Eagle 5 ‘Hero for Hire’ logo will come as a printed piece with the set.

If you like the model, please support it HERE and may the Schwartz be with you!
