LEGO stop-motion animation has a long history, going all the way back to LEGO’s own collaboration with Steven Spielberg in the 1990s. Whether you’re into music videos or iconic scenes from your favorite video games, you’ll find lots of great LEGO videos here on The Brothers Brick.

Paganomation needs your support for “Little Guys... In Space!”

David Pagano of Paganomation launched a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to raise money for his upcoming video project called “Little Guys… In Space!” If you are unfamiliar with David’s videos, you should check out the original “Little Guys!” and his commissioned works. Learn more about the project from the video below and visit the campaign page to show your support.

The top video games of 2011 recreated in LEGO

Organizers for the 15th Interactive Achievement Awards approached Alex Kobbs back in October to create a montage of the top video games of the year, animated in LEGO. Alex used clips from some of his earlier animations, including the super-awesome Gears of War 3, and a whole batch of new animation to create the opening sequence shown in Last Vegas earlier this month.

And don’t miss Alex’s making of video.

Bricks of War brings Gears of War 3 to life in epic LEGO animation

When I haven’t been working, sleeping, building, or blogging, most of my waking hours over the past month have been spent playing Gears of War 3. My favorite things often inspire LEGO creations, a tendency I seem to share with LEGO stop-motion animator Kooberz Studios (aka Alex Kobbs), whose “Bricks of War” is going viral — for good reason!

It’s hard to miss Marcus’ Hammer of Dawn taking out the Corpser, but watch for some cool details like aiming the frag grenade and a Retro Lancer execution.

The making-of film itself has some excellent stop-motion sequences:

Time-lapse video: Building 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van

I spent a good chunk of Saturday and Sunday at BrickCon building 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, assisted toward the end by an able young spacer (I build slowly — really slowly — savoring the build, or something). Marshall Matlock has managed to squeeze the build into a minute and a half.

CGI Train

Ben Beneke is one of the greats of LEGO train building, with even his old steamers still standing out as some of the best. I’d been wondering what had happened to Ben recently (he usually posts at least one new train a year) but apparently he’s been spending time making excellent animations using LDraw and POVray. An animation like this is really hard to do in POVray. I know, I’ve tried.

Printed Circuit video clip made entirely from LEGO

Stop-motion filmmaker and AFOL Chris Salt (0ldScratch) has created an entirely brick-animated video clip for one of the latest tracks by Printed Circuit. This is some of the smoothest brick animation I’ve seen and the use of the M-Tron torsos is brilliant.

Suggested by Pete Reid and my apologies to Pete, Chris and our readers for taking so very long to finally get it posted.

See? Timeless and universal.

There’s something just…happy about this advertisement. Made by Temujin Doran, the posting on Vimeo states it “uses pieces from the stash my brother and I used to play with when we were younger, so perhaps it looks a bit dated compared with modern day Lego. Dated, but still great.”

And you thought actors could be moody.

We’ve all heard it, right? Actors declining roles for “creative differences”…right. Creative differences. On the actor’s part? After this fantastic brickfilm from mobiledeli, I’m personally more inclined to say it was the director with the issues. This one certainly has them.
