LEGO The Hobbit Video Game Trailer

Seemingly out of nowhere, a LEGO The Hobbit video game trailer has been released. This should not only be a fun game, but a great addition to the LEGO LOTR video game.
Am I the only one that didn't see this coming? Was there a memo that I missed? Or is everyone as surprised as me?
When will the game be available, and will it include scenes from There And Back Again in the final game? Only time will tell. For now, just enjoy this little trailer.

Merry Belated Christmas From BrickEnd

Yes, it's December 26th. Yes, officially Christmas is over. Yes, here I am a day late wishing you all a merry Christmas. During all of the festivities of yesterday I failed to post and give my seasonal greetings. But here I am today trying to make it up to you.
I hope all of you had a very great Christmas. Not only for presents, but also for spending time with family and friends. Cause when it really boils down to it, it's being together what really counts on days like yesterday. I know some of you younger kids are probably like "what?" But don't worry. You'll understand when you're older. For now, I'm glad you got your Chima Lion Temple or Ewok Village.

Merry belated Christmas everyone!

NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover Revealed

Remember the CUUSOO Mars Curiosity Rover set that passed 10,000 supporters awhile ago? Well the finished model has been revealed. The set is pretty similar to the original design, so I'm sure that makes Stephen Pakbaz (the original creator) happy.
We're looking at a January release date. So just hold on for another couple weeks. The set contains 295 pieces and will retail for $30.

2014 Marvel Super Heroes Images Unveiled

This isn't exactly the freshest news on earth, but the 2014 Marvel Super Heroes box art has been revealed. The only major difference from the sneak peek we saw earlier this month is the better images. But we also know that the Spiderman sets are from the Ultimate Spiderman TV show and not The Amazing Spiderman 2, and the other two sets are from the Avengers Assemble show.

Note: The prices projected for these sets are merely guesses. So far no information has been revealed concerning price points.

76014 Spider-Trike vs. Electro. Minifigures: Spiderman, Electro. 70 pieces. Price: $9.99-$12.99.

Pokemon: Rapidash by Mike Nieves

Though I never was into Pokémon, and probably never will be, I know a good MOC when I see one. And that's exactly what Mike Nieves Rapidash is. Not only are some of the parts used incredibly difficult to work with, the model is very realistic looking.
I really can't decide what I like better, the flaming mane and tail, or the intricately designed neck. Oh well, I like them both.

Rivendell by Alice Finch

This Rivendell created by Alice Finch on Flickr is the perfect MOC to look at this morning.  Obviously because The Hobbit: DoS was released last night. For those of you that haven't seen the film yet, I recommend you do. Visually stunning. Plot... let's just say it's not quite as stunning. But enough with the movie, let's talk about the MOC.
While it may not look too much like other Rivendell MOCs, or the Rivendell from the film for that matter, it's no less impressive. There is a fantastic attention to detail. From the roof designs to the water-horses. Check out a larger image and more by clicking the link below.

LEGO Architecture Marine Bay Sands Available in Select Countries

The newest LEGO Architecture set comes completely out of nowhere. At least for me anyways. I guess there was a little image leaked of this set in October, but I never saw it. That's what I get for not having any interest in this theme.
The Marine Bay Sands is an Integrated Resort on Marine Bay in Singapore (thank you, Wikipedia). Basically it's a really expensive building that looks really cool. And LEGO decided to make a set out of it. This should be good for those of you that like the trans-blue tiles.

21021 Marine Bay Sands. 602 pieces.

As far as I know, this set isn't available in the US. But it is available in Korea. So if you live in Korea, you can buy it here.

Thanks to Brickset for the info!

2014 Marvel Sets

Thanks to an Australian consumer magazine, we have some new images of the 2014 Marvel Super Heroes sets. Three Spiderman sets, a Captain America set, and a Thor/Hulk set make up the wave. Not sure if the Spiderman sets are from The Amazing Spiderman 2 or not. The Captain America one appears to be a more cartoon version of The First Avenger, and I have no idea where the Thor one comes from.

76014 Spider-Trike vs. Electro.
76015 Doc Ock Truck Heist
76016 Spider-Helicopter Rescue
76017 Captain America vs. Hydra
76018 Hulk Lab Smash

Looks like a pretty solid wave. With some fantastic minifigures (Electro, anyone?). Expect more details soon.

LYNX Z1 - Heavy Assault Mech & Co. by David Steeves

This is one of those mechs that you would not want to meet in an alley. Or anywhere else for that matter. Things might not go too well.
I really like the leg design on this thing. It's a little square, but still good. And the missile launchers more than make up for it.
Am I the only one that thinks of Pacific Rim when looking at this MOC?

The Hobbit Sets Available at Shop@Home

December is here, and so are the new Hobbit sets! There are tons of great new minifigs, including Azog the white orc. Unfortunately, the sets come with some hefty price points. But if you want them bad enough, you can either pay the sum or wait for a sale.
Not only are they available at Shop@Home, but they are also at Amazon, Walmart, ToysRus, and other retailers.

Buy them here.

Happy Thanksgiving/Thanksgivukkah by Dave Kaleta

It's that time of year again - the time when we all stuff ourselves with amazing food and then groan about overeating. But hey, it's worth it!
To celebrate Thanksgiving and Hannukkah, Dave Kaleta has built a wonderful little turkey. A classic Thanksgiving animal.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Snow Flower by R Zangelmi

Star Wars MicroFighters and Two New Sets Revealed

More and more sets are appearing on tons of different websites. Including several previously unseen Star Wars sets. Also, what I thought would be another wave of Planet sets, has actually turned out to be Microfighters. Basically a tiny fighter with a minifig crammed on top. In my opinion, better than the Planet sets.

75046 Coruscant Police Gunship. Minifigures: Anakin, Ahsoka, Clone Troopers x2. This set comes from the last few episodes of Season 5 of the Clone Wars when everyone thinks Ahsoka bombed the Jedi Temple. If you remember, she ran away and Anakin and the Clones chased her in the Police Gunship. Just so you know where this ugly-looking ship came from.

2014 LEGO DK Books Announced

Dorling Kindersley has a whole new wave of LEGO books headed our way next year. While most are nothing more than story books, sticker books, and the odd Brickmaster, there are a few that stand out from the crowd. These being a new Star Wars Visual Dictionary, Friends Character Encyclopedia, and Legends of Chima: The Secret History.
The first Star Wars dictionary came out in 2009, so this should be a great collectors book. What with nearly 5 years of sets added.
The Friends Character Encyclopedia on the other hand, sounds like a flop. A) I don't think there are enough characters to make the theme worthy of an encyclopedia. And B) I don't really think that many people would be interested in owning one. Except for the exclusive figure. I have nothing against Friends, it just seems a little early for a character encyclopedia. Then again, there are at least 4 different versions of each girl.
As for the LoC book, I can only guess as to what it might be. Could be a dictionary of some sort.

You can see more in Penguin books' catalog.

The LEGO Ancient Chinese Tang's Horse by Schfio Factory

It's been well over a year since I've last blogged Schfio Factory. He makes his return with an artfully built horse. The MOC looks good in this picture, but when seen at different angles, it looks brilliant! I especially love the design of the tail and legs.

LEGO CUUSOO: The Adventure Time Project Nearly at 10k

There are several projects on CUUSOO that are mere days from 10,000 supporters. Probably the most popular of these is The Adventure Time Project. This project is under 200 supporters from 10,000, and it needs your help to get those last few. So if you haven't supported yet, go over there and do so. You can be one of 10,000 to get this project rolling. Just a little incentive for you.

Update: It has reached 10,000 supporters. Now, we wait.

The Amazing Spider-Man by Gabe Moore

Gabe Moore loves to make LDD models of super heroes. This time, he's built the Amazing Spiderman. And it is amazing! Lots of the parts used are very hard to find a good use for, yet Gabe was able to use several awkward pieces. And Spidey looks all all the better for it.

New DC Super Heroes Set Images

Hot behind the 2014 Star Wars sets the 2014 DC Super Heroes sets have been revealed. As in every wave, Batman is the focus. But who's got a problem with that? After all, he's Batman.
New heroes and new villains in this wave, so make sure you check out all the pictures.

2014 LEGO Star Wars Sets Revealed

With November flying by, more and more 2014 sets are popping up. This time, it's Star Wars that makes a showing. A whopping 19 sets have been announced, though we only have pictures of 11 of them.
Unfortunately, the quality of the sets seems to be going down. The minifigures only get better, but the sets definitely aren't worth the price asked for them.
Grab a bag of chips, and have fun skimming through these.

The first set, seen above, is 75034 Death Star Troopers. Probable price point: $12.99. My question is, why is LEGO lowering the value of the Imperial Guards? Who needs an army of them anyway?

Check out the rest below!

Vanishing Point by Nick Barrett

For round 5 of the MOCOlympics, Nick Barrett was given the category of forced perspective. Forced Perspective is, as some of you know, using bricks and an odd camera angle to force the audience to believe the MOC is really much deeper than it is. Though in fact the MOC could only be a few inches deep or so, the audience can think it goes on for several feet, or even miles.
Given a task this difficult, I'd say Nick really did an excellent job. Not only is the road decieving in it's length, but the car he built to drive on it is a work of art in itself.

LEGO CUUSOO: Japanese Old Style Architecture Breaks 10,000

At long last, the Japanese Old Style Architecture CUUSOO project by Taxon55 has reached 10,000 supporters. Here's a fun fact for you, this is the longest it has ever taken for a CUUSOO project to hit 10k. So it took a while, but it made it. And during the long journey to 10,000, it has always been one of the top projects.
It'll be interesting to see how CUUSOO handles this. I don't see why it couldn't pass the review. But LEGO just might not want it.

Owl by Mihai Marius Mihu

This owl by Mihai Marius Mihu is, dare I say it, downright cute. While that's a word I usually try not to use when it comes to MOCs, I really can't honestly use any other word. Or I could use the word the MOCer uses to describe it: He merely says "Owl."
I love the use of the spikes for ear-feather-things, nice NPU!

The LEGO Movie Sets Revealed

At long last, the entire line of The LEGO Movie sets have been revealed. The wave is massive, containing 12 sets, not counting Series 12 of CMF.
These sets aren't necessarily supposed to be seen at the moment, so grab these while you can. There's no telling if LEGO will make me pull them.
The set above is supposedly called Pursuit. Whether that name sticks, remains to be seen.

Batman: Arkham Asylum by Kyle Ransom

Check out this cool Arkham Asylum by Kyle Ransom. It's definitely a different take on the building. Most Arkham Asylum builds don't include the surrounding grounds. Something I like about this MOC. Interestingly enough, Mr. Xenomurphy released an Arkham MOC just a week ago. You can check that out here.

Minifig Scale Minecraft Sets Announced

The LEGO Minecraft Facebook page has been extremely active today. Around lunchtime, they officially announced that they will be producing Minifig scale Minecraft sets. A little later, they posted multiple Creeper photos, and asked the public which one they liked best. Obviously, LEGO is realizing the potential in building blocks out of blocks.
Check out the video below for some possible sneak peeks:


Who Would have thought that a single CUUSOO project could become a whole new line for LEGO?
Find out more on the LEGO Minecraft Facebook page.

What are your thoughts on this exciting news? Let me know in the comments below!

LEGO CUUSOO: 3rd Legend of Zelda Project Hits 10k

Just like that, we have the third Legend of Zelda project to gain 10,000 supporters on CUUSOO. If there's any chance for a LoZ project, this is the one. It only needs one new mold, and WesTalbott, the project creator, is offering his 1% of the profit back to LEGO to cover the cost of the mold.
Let's hope LEGO thinks seriously about this one before turning it down.

CMF Series 12 Revealed

November kicks off with a new Collectible Minfigure Series being revealed over on Brickfanatics. This series is supposedly composed of characters from The LEGO Movie. If that's true, then this movie will  be hilarious. Can anybody explain the three robot figs? Apart from being too similar for a single series, they look like zombies!

The lineup:
William Shakespeare
Gail the Construction Worker
Panda Guy
Abraham Lincoln
Taco Tuesday Guy
Larry the Barista
President Business
Calamity Drone
Marsha Queen of the Mermaids
Wild West Wyldstyle
Scribbe-Face Bad Cop
Velma Staplebot
Hard Hat Emmet
"Where are my Pants?" Guy
Mrs. Scratchen- Post
Wiley Fusebot

I'm having a hard time putting names with faces on some of these characters. But they certainly look good. I'm in love with Panda and Shakespeare.

Sarlina's Cottage by David Hensel

Check out this crooked little cottage by David Hensel. When I first saw it, I though it was another Luke Watkins (a.k.a Derfel Cadarn) build. And that's saying something. Change the colors on this building, add a zombie or two, and it's perfect for a Halloween MOC.
I'm in a creepy-ish MOC mood. Very fitting considering what day it is.

See it on Mocpages.

Caught on Camera by Leda Kat =^..^=

Probably the only reason I didn't post this MOC sooner is cause I wanted to save it for Halloween. This is exactly the spooky kind of MOC you want to see around Halloween. Leda Kat delivers again!

Commission - Cair Paravel by Paul Veermeesh

This microscale model was designed by Paul Vermeesch and built by elementary students in Michigan. Paul has done quite a few building classes with kids over the past year to let kids become familiar with building, learn new techniques, and have fun. Well I'm sure they had fun with this project. Though Paul probably wanted to do something violent while designing it in LLD. The effort was worth it though. And I'm sure it made the kids' day.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Trailer

This may be considered old news for some of you (old meaning yesterday), but the first trailer for Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been released. Like every movie so far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it looks like an action-packed, obsession-worthy film.
We can only wonder as to what sets LEGO will release for this film. There are plenty of options, and they have a large cast of characters to use. I don't think I'd mind a Falcon minifig just about now, would you?
We still have to wait a few months for the film to hit theaters, but with Thor: The Dark World coming out in just two weeks, and with the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy and Amazing Spiderman 2 films, we should have plenty of Marvel goodness to tie us over.

LEGO CUUSOO: Latest Review Results

The results of the latest CUUSOO review are in! This review included the winter 2012, spring and summer 2013 review periods. It's been a long review, and some of you may not be happy with the final verdict on some of the projects (there were 10 in all), but I certainly can't complain about the product they picked to be a set. That project was Peter Reid's Exo Suit.

This is, without a doubt, a step in the right direction for LEGO. The fact that they chose this heavily detailed project instead of a simpler model shows that they're willing to try their hands at complicated models. Whether or not they butcher the build in the final set remains to be seen.

As for the fate of the rest of the projects, see it below:
Thinking With Portals: rejected.
Legend of Zelda: rejected.
Mini Shop Series: rejected.
Purdue Pete: rejected.
Andy Bugdroid: rejected.
Land Rover Dfender 110: pending.
Minifig Scale Tumbler: rejected.
Sace Troopers: rejected.
League of Legends: rejected.

This is obviously a little disappointing. Especially with Portals and Space Troopers. Both of these projects were heavily supported. And were very popular. Expect some riots from fans!
The good news is that the Land Rover Defender 110 is pending. Which means there is still hope of it being made into a set. Keep your fingers crossed.

63 Building in Yoido, Seoul, Korea by Yo-Sub Joo

Check out these mini skyscrapers by Yo-Sub Joo! Of course, the gold building is instantly eye-catching. Who doesn't like a big gold skyscraper? But the other buildings are certainly worth looking at. They may not be as big, but they're still pretty cool.

2014 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Images

Images of three new The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug sets have been released. And I must say they are FANTASTIC! Of course, these sets should come with some fantastic price points as well. Fantastic for LEGO, not our wallets, that is.

79011 Dol Guldor Ambush. Minifigures: Beorn, Gundabad Orcs x2.
We finally see what Beorn will look like. Those of you that follow The Hobbit news sites should recall some leaked images of Beorn, but this set certainly gives us more to talk about. Whether Beorn is ambushed at Dol Guldor in the films remains to be seen.

See the other sets (which in my opinion only get better!) below! But keep in mind, this post contains Spoilers!

Ninjago Overlord And Golden Dragon by Mike Nieves

Check out these magnificent Ninjago dragons! Mike Nieves must have put a lot of thought into these MOCs. Both are cleverly built. The first one (above) is my favorite. The gold really does what no other color could do. And the wing design is great. The Overlord (below) on the other hand, Is a menacing beast that could probably rip the arms off of anything. And would be glad to do it!

ESCHER... Relativity by Riccardo Zangelmi

Escher's Relativity seems to be a popular work of art that LEGO builders try to capture in bricks. The most notable of these would be Paul Vermeesch's Star Wars Relativity. But for a more true version, Riccardo Zangelmi's MOC would probably be my favorite. It's a very clean, organized MOC. One that stimulates the brain a bit more than Paul's. Nothing against Paul, his MOC is fantastic! But this post is about Riccardo's build.

Possible LEGO Simpson Figures Spotted on Ebay

These two possible (probable?) official Simpson figures were just sold on Ebay for $56. While the torsos and legs are most likely just random parts grabbed from a bin, the heads look genuine. With a good amount of detail, and a smooth, LEGO look. We won't know for sure till we see the sets, but there's a good chance that these are real. Especially considering what's appeared on Ebay in the past.

More 2014 Ninjago Set Images

Swedish Toy website Brixit has released images of three of the new 2014 Ninjago sets. The sets have a very high dose of cyborg in them. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Depends on how much you like cyborgs.

The first set is 70724 Ninjacopter. An obvious Zane set. White seems to be a reoccurring color with him. Couldn't have anything to do with him being the ninja of ice, could it?

 70720 Hovering Hunter. Cole gets to smash the heads of bad guys in this set. And with a nifty (and dangerous) looking flail.

 70725 Nindroid Mech Dragon. This set looks to be the "epic showdown" set for the wave thus far. A massive cyborg dragon and a cool Ninja dune-buggy are the highlights. Though I wonder about the grey-haired minifig with the staff. Who is he? Time will tell.

What are your thoughts on the newest Ninjago sets? Let us know in the comments below!

The Incredible Hulk by Outer Rim Emperor

Bruce Banner transforms into the Hulk and beats the stuffing out of four punk-motorcyclists in this MOC by Outer Rim Emperor. The thing that caught my eye was the lighting. I do love me a well-lit MOC!

Tribull by Nick V

When I saw this I'm pretty sure my jaw hit the keyboard. I haven't seen too many of Nick V's MOCs. But They are all fantastic. I highly recommend you go over to his Flickr page and check them out.
Meanwhile, his Tribull is positively overwhelming! NPU to the last letter!

MOCOlympics Round 2: Blake Baer vs. Jamesuniverse

Blake Baer is always in his element during the MocOlympics. This was evident last year, and this year he is (could it be possible?) even better. And this MOC is why!
Just an excellent build all around. Highlights are the wings on the horse, the archway, and the forced perspective city. But the whole MOC deserves a better look.

LEGO's newest installment in the Modular Buildings line is the stunning 10243 Parisian Restaurant. I honestly have no complaints about this set. It's top-quality, and immensely detailed.

Passing Sherwood by LL Lolino

Check out this wonderful, oddly shaped MOC by LL Lolino. It must have been a bit of a trick to get the water to flow the way it is. But obviously the work payed off, as you can tell.
I applaud LL's building technique. It really is fabulous. Captures the forest perfectly.

Clavin Mosaic by Alex Rhode

It's everyone's favorite comic-book character in this little mosaic by Alex Rhode. Alex says it was only a short 45 minute build, but short is sweet for this MOC. And I'm sure there are some us who couldn't do something this good with twice as much time.

2014 High-res Ninjago Images

The first high-res 2014 Ninjago set images have been released. It appears the ninjas' are going cyborg! And from the looks of these three sets, the 4th (and hopefully last) installment is bringing back a bit of Exo-Force style. Especially with the new hair. Which I'm really excited for!

Thanks to Eurobricks for the pictures!

Check out multiple images and a description for each of the three the sets below.

LEGO CUUSOO: Sherlock Crosses 10,000

After a very short time (by CUUSOO standards), the project Sherlock has reached 10,000 supporters. Most of us shouldn't be surprised at this news considering the shows' fan base. Though I wonder how LEGO will react to this project. I don't watch the show so I really can't say how I think it will do, but as long as they make the Consultation room, a very nice model in my opinion, I'll rejoice with the Sherlock fans out there.

Sorry for my absence. There are multiple reasons for it, none of which I'll explain here. I'll make it up to you all.

M.O. Round 1; Sagittarius The Centaur by Lego Junkie

The MocOlympics are back! I feel like it was just a few months ago that I was saying it, but it has been over a year! Of course, like most Mocpages contests, the MocOlympics brings out some fantastic MOCs. And this Centaur by Lego Junkie is no exception.
I just love the whole MOC! From the great rock and tree work, to the fragile helmet, all the way to the six-pack on this guy- er, centaur.
Check out this MOC and many more ones like it in the 2013 MocOlympics group.

LEGO CUUSOO: Macross VF-1 Valkyrie + Fast Pack/ Armored Parts Reaches 10,000

In the latest CUUSOO news, the Macross VF-1 Valkyrie + Fast Pack/ Armored Parts project has recently reached 10,000 supporters. This is the end of a two year journey for this project. Very long, but very much worth it. I would really like to see where The LEGO Group takes a set like this.
There are quite a few other projects that are rapidly gaining popularity and supporters. One of these is the new Sherlock project that has just crossed the 3,200 supporter mark.
