So much so, in fact, that I recently built one. It’s been so popular, that I’ve decided not to build anything but cars anymore. Since I’m still admin on classic-space.com, I’m going to convert the forums to be all about LEGO car creations. There will be emphasis on classic cars, and on trunk space. I’m also now only going to blog car creations, and only if they aren’t as good as mine. I’ll probably have to sell all of my space minifigs on BrickLink, so that I can buy more wheels.
TT Games‘ publisher Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment just announced LEGO Battles for Nintendo DS. The game is due out this summer, and will apparently emphasize building in original themes over the movie-based and comic-inspired adventures of games like LEGO Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Batman.
Check out this graphic of LEGO Pirates in action:
The game will also feature LEGO Castle:
Though the press release didn’t include an image, the game will also allow players to build Space creations.
Here’s a bit more:
LEGO® Battles offers a new kind of “build and battle” LEGO gameplay. Through six distinct story lines, players build their own LEGO bases and battle teams as they engage in over 70 different levels, mixing and matching units to create the ultimate customized LEGO squad. These unique LEGO battles teams see pirate swordsmen fighting side-by-side with wizards and aliens; dragons battling ninjas; and pirate ships launching broadsides against spacecraft and knights! Players can also challenge friends on the battlefield in multiplayer mode through wireless DS multi-card play.
And in case you missed it farther down the page, TT Games is hiring!
Kevin Fedde uploaded a cute, little Shinto shrine today. I really like the overgrown look he has going on here.
Paul Brassington prepares you to witness a showdown over the fate of the sacred dumpling. This creation warrants a detailed look at its construciton and accompanying humorous captions. Don’t miss it!
DARKspawn + monkey ninja = total win.
David Pagano, Nate Burr and myself were all recently asked by the LEGO Company to make a brickfilm to celebrate the LEGO minifigure’s 30th birthday. This is my contribution, 30 Years: The Story of the Minifigure. How many historical figures/events can you name?
Don’t forget to check out GOMINIMANGO.com for more videos and a contest (details coming soon to a blog near you!)
Monkfish44 is training insectoid, bug-eyed creatures in the way of the ninja. Doesn’t seem to wise, if you ask me. Those things have a way of turning on you.
I’m extremely pleased to announce that Keith Goldman has joined The Brothers Brick as our resident Columnist.
Keith is one of those LEGO fans of near-mythical proportions. Having met Keith in person, I can report that he stands nine feet four inches tall (that’s twelve meters for you Canadians), and is able to levitate his entire LEGO collection with his mind. Despite his telekinetic abilities, Keith has four arms (six metric). To fit in better with mere mortals, Keith is able to change size and shape at will.
Here’s a photo of Keith (center) with his coterie of adherents, better known as KeithLUG — yes, the man has his own LEGO Users Group:
Keith is perhaps best known for his bloated dioramas, including The Omicron Weekend, built with one third of all LEGO bricks in the Western Hemisphere by a division from the US Army Corp of Engineers over the course of a six month period. Naturally, Keith directed the troops remotely with his mind.
Keith is also a LEGO Ambassador from 2008 until whenever he feels like it, bringing order to the LEGOverse (and MOCPages in particular).
As a Columnist for The Brothers Brick, Keith will apply his “oratorical tradition of uninhibited or unbridled commentary” to semi-regular editorials on LEGO-related topics. Hey may also deign to grace us with his own creations from time to time.
Without further ado, please welcome Keith Goldman to The Brothers Brick!
