Sure, Sarge and his men are a bit set in their ways. But they will hold their ground and stand resolute against any enemy, their spirits unbending, their courage unyielding. Photographers also love them because they’re always in their best poses.
Are you addicted to making your avatars and Miis that look like tiny doppelgänger of yourself? Then you might want to check out these cool USB minifig people that can be ordered to your own custom design specifications.
During their visit to the 2010 Nuremberg Toy Fair, the guys over at Hobby Media snapped this pic of some awesome new LEGO Star Wars minifig alarm clocks.
Each 8-inch tall maxi/minifig sits on your bedside table, and includes an oversize LCD alarm clock in its squared-off chest.
If you’re into playing with LEGO minifigs, here’s a great find for making your little LEGO characters just a wee bit more dangerous than just a choking hazard.
The guys over at Brickarms make a variety of custom-molded miniature weaponry to put into the hands of your minifigs.
The Ewoks (you remember those guys; think Return of the Jedi, spears, grunting, adorable ears) are supposed to be pretty cuddly. They’re like little angry teddy bears… or they were, until they were re-imagined as something a little more square.
With all the attention Borderlands is getting, I feel it’s important to remember that other futuristic game with important vaults: Fallout 3. And what better way to remember anything than with LEGO?
And, of course, the best thing to immortalize in brick from from Fallout 3?
Four brave survivors must stand against the tide of an undead minifig army. Armed with few weapons, two unfortunately bald heads, and a bag full of snappy one-liners, they will repel the brick zombies.
Alright, take a moment to admire the beauty and detail.
Chief Happiness Officer (nice!) Alexander Kjerulf received a business card from a friend. But since his friend worked at LEGO, this is what she handed to him:
Alexander adds that LEGO tries to match the appearance of the employee with the minifig.
Is there anything that doesn’t have an awesome LEGO version? Yes there is: my face. Fortunately Terran LEGO Master Pepa Quin isn’t into ugly faces. He used his amazing brick-snapping skills to create units from Blizzard’s upcoming RTS Starcraft II, like these shiny-headed Terran Marines:
While the Marines need no introduction to anyone who’s played SC, the rest of the units that Pepa Quin copied are new to the game, which makes his creations even more awesome.
While no one can fault the crafstmanship or creativity of this Lego Reinbot, there’s just something about him that’s a little lacking in joviality. He’s got sinister style in spades, though, and while I like him, I’m pretty sure he thinks I’ve been naughty.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Lego minifig, they’ve come out with 7 celebrity versions. They won’t be available to the public, however- which is probably for the best as they are sure to scare children and adults alike.
