LEGO Minions Lair Set Puts Your Minions in a Minion

LEGO Minions Lair Set Puts Your Minions in a Minion
To celebrate the upcoming release of Minions: The Rise of Gru, LEGO has revealed several new sets inspired by the film. My favorite of them is this set that lets you create some larger minions for your minion minifigs to hang out in. Set #75551, aka “Brick-built Minions and their Lair” features models of minions Kevin and Stuart, each of which opens up to reveal a part of the minion’s lair inside.

Subway Making a Green Eggs and Ham Sandwich

Subway Making a Green Eggs and Ham Sandwich
The Dr. Seuss classic, Green Eggs and Ham is one of the greatest children’s books ever, written to encourage kids to open their minds and try new things. I love the book but, I’m skeptical about Subway’s new ham ‘n’ cheese sandwich “homage” featuring egg patties with – yep, you knew it was coming – green yolks. The temporary menu item was created to coincide with the launch of Netflix’s new animated series, Green Eggs and Ham, starring Adam Devine as Sam I Am, Michael Douglas as Guy I Am, and produced by Jared Stern (The LEGO Batman Movie, The Watch).

Could You Survive Back to the Future?

Could You Survive Back to the Future?
Back to the Future is a classic. It’s packed with humor, adventure, great characters (Great Scott!), and has a fun time-twisting plot. But beyond the questionable time travel, there are other things in the movie which might be just as implausible. For instance, there’s that scene at the beginning where Marty gets blown away by that giant speaker.

Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie

Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie
As far as I know, the entire plot of Space Invaders is “increase speed, drop down, and reverse direction!” But making vapid and obtuse movies based on popular franchises is what Hollywood does best these days, so I guess I wasn’t too surprised when I heard there’s a Space Invaders movie in development. According to a report from Deadline, New Line is getting closer to starting production on said film, based on the 1978 Taito arcade game.

LEGO Goes to The Upside Down with Awesome Stranger Things Model
LEGO is one of my favorite playthings, and Stranger Things is one of my favorite TV series, so when I found out the two were partnering up, I was pretty stoked. But LEGO has really outdone themselves with their first official Stranger Things set. The 2,287-piece set The Upside Down (LEGO kit 75810) is an intricate model of the Byers house, loaded up with lots of details, and flanked by trees.

Dread Pirate Roberts Action Figure Will Most Likely Kill Your Wallet in the Morning
Of all the flicks that I remember from growing up in the 1980s, one of the best was The Princess Bride. I’ll admit to not wanting to watch it in my youth because it sounded like a “girl movie” to my younger self.
