Online fan conventions have moved to live streaming shows with no thanks to the pandemic. The adoption of this new format was forced upon us to ensure continuity of annual traditions. LEGO announcing a convention for the first time ever, and not having a LEGO CON prior to the pandemic is seen as an opportunity to test waters since everyone else is doing it. It’s also a much more affordable time to jump on the streaming CON bandwagon instead of a physical event, so why not? How did it fare? Read on to find out my personal thoughts and opinion.

We’ve seen Robert Pattinson nail his role as a glittery vampire in the Twilight series. But will a sparkly vampire who is perpetually in high school and whose true love appears to be just one Jell-O Shooter away from vomiting translate well for the role of a brooding, emotionally-stunted billionaire orphan with bat issues? No matter where you stand on that debate you have to admit that the new Batmobile for the upcoming The Batman movie looks intriguing. Builder u/ZeRadman is probably the first to render up a LEGO version and it looks like good old Detroit muscle with a few Mad Max-style customizations. This might have been the first but if I know LEGO builders (and it seems I do) this won’t be the last. As for Pattinson as Batman I say give him a chance. All the fanboys were up in arms over Affleck and look how…um…yeah. Anyway, cool Batmobile!
