Don’t you hate having to wear the same cap day in and day out? Well, there’s a solution for you fickle folks: LEGO caps. It has space for you to put your own LEGO bricks on (or the LEGO bricks of your 8-year old child) and completely customize the way the cap looks. Heading to the aquarium for a day? Put some fish on. Going to a gig? How about minifigs of the band members? Check out some of the pics below.
Upcoming PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn looks to be one epic game, and hopefully we’ll even have a review up for you guys soon! The game features these humonstrous animalistic mechs, which, judging from the in-game footage we’ve seen so far, certainly look highly impressive. While we wait for the official merch to swing by, you can always build your own LEGO Tallneck mech (that’s the one that looks like a giraffe) to have and hold and hug and call Alfred, with instructions courtesy of South African LEGO expert, Wayne de Beer.
TT Games have been making Lego games for…ooh, almost a decade now (the first Lego Star Wars game appeared in 2005). Many of the games were based off existing stories and characters, but the time has come for new Lego characters to emerge as video games. Enter Chase McCain in Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins. Let’s hit the streets of Lego City and see if we have what it takes to keep the City safe.
The humble Lego brick is 55 years old. In 1958, Godtfred K. Christiansen bought the patent to the Lego brick and in the five decades that the company has been in operation, it has produced an estimated 400 billion blocks! To celebrate the anniversary, Lego teamed up with Canadian advertising agency Brad to create 55 minimalist posters that incorporate the Lego brick. The “Imagine a …” tagline gives a clue to the book, movie, or song that the poster refers to.
See if you can construct the answers to 10 of the Lego pop culture riddles. If you hit a brick wall, the answers can be found at the bottom of the post.
Traveller’s Tales have been on a roll with the number of quality Lego games they’ve been producing lately, and the latest game in their stable is Lego The Lord of the Rings, based more on the movies than on the books. How does the jaunt across Middle Earth compare as a Lego adventure? I took my trusty Mithril controller in hand to find out. (Please note that this review is strictly for the PS3 and Xbox360 versions of the game. Other versions may differ drastically.)
Let me tell you a story. When I was a kid, I used to stay over at my cousin’s place during the holidays. He used to own one of the most amazing comic book collections I’d ever seen, and—to the ire of everyone around me who told me I was being thoroughly antisocial—I spent every holiday reading and re-reading every single one of those comics. He had them all: superlative quantities of Superman, great piles of Green Lantern, judicious amounts of Justice League, and of course, a buttload of Batman comics. I read them all, over and over again. I first got my love of the DC and Marvel universes from those days back then, and I never really lost it. As you, dear readers, know well, I also have a great love of Traveller’s Tales Lego series, so I was justifiably quite excited to get my hands on Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.
The Lego series of games have been coming at us at a fairly steady pace, and the latest one completes the latter half of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter story. The game follows the movies far more closely than it does the books, but does it do a decent job of it? The ultimate goal of any review is to answer the question “is it worth spending money on?” Let’s find out.
George R. R. Martin has certainly made an impression on people. Book sales are up and the first in the series of epic fantasy novels, Game of Thrones, will see a comic book adaptation in September. The highly successful TV show concluded its first season and viewers can expect to return to the seven kingdoms in April 2012. The Internet has been busy churning out remixes of the Game of Thrones opening theme and I wouldn’t be surprised if LEGO don’t take advantage of critical success of Game of Thrones by creating a set of commemorative characters. The haven’t done it as yet but Sam Beattie has taken a stab at it.
The game designer from Boston, USA, has cannibalised bits and bobs from existing sets to create LEGO versions of the characters. From House Stark to the scheming High Council to the murderous Clegane Brothers, the likenesses are surprisingly good. See his Game of Thrones LEGO minifigs after the jump.
Ahoy, lubbers! Th’ latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, On Stranger Tides wa’ just recently let out o’ th’ shipyards and onto yonder movie screens and, as almost always be happenin’, there be a video game offering as well.

The Lego series of games ha’ been ken for their high quality gaming an’ excellent humor, but does Lego Pirates follow this most excellent legacy in a like-minded, sword swinging manner? Onward, scurvy dogs, if ye be wantin’ to know more.
