The LEGO Batman line is just okay.Â The buildings and cars are much better than the figures in my opinion (Minimates still do it for me as far as poseability, size, and so on), but what if LEGO actually took the time to create an entire line of figures based on Marvel and DC properties? That’s exactly what Xueren did over at the Brickshelf website. Check it out, it’s pretty cool. Has he really created 500 figures? via Brickshelf
Chris Doyle from Reasonably Clever, and long time Major Spoilers reader, sent me a quick message to let us know he is running another unofficial LEGO contest on his site. This time around he’s challenging builders to design a special armor set for Iron Man. Since this is not a contest endorsed by LEGO or Marvel, you aren’t going to see any official ties to either company, but you can win some cool prizes. So if you are a LEGO-Maniac and have some Iron Man love, head over to the site for the complete rules, prizes, and all that other…
Here’s the latest trailer/commercial for the upcoming Lego Batman video game. [youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=-KL-yQ2GtsM[/youtube] If I only had 10 more hours in the day, I might be able to squeeze in 30 minutes to play video games again.

My son and I are already playing with our LEGO Indiana Jones playsets… okay, he’s only 8 months old, so most of the playing is being done by your’s truly. In addition to more Indiana Jones sets coming this year, LEGO has also announced new sets from its other licensed toy line, including Speed Racer, and you don’t want to miss the new Batman line that will feature the first Harley Quinn minifig.

Oh man, first it was Lego Star Wars, then Lego Batman, now Lego and LucasArts are teaming up for Lego Indiana Jones: The Videogame. The game will be a tounge-in-cheek as players take on the role of Indiana Jones as he whips his way through the three movies. Way back in 1995 or so, when Lego released it’s Adventure series, I posted how cool it would be to have actual Indiana Jones playsets. Well it looks like 12 years of waiting is finally paying off as Lego and Lucasfilm have announced we’ll get Indiana Jones playsets in January 2008.
