Star Wars: A New Hip

We’re starting to see a lot more LEGO Star Wars creations as we ramp up toward the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens LEGO sets — or maybe as I get excited myself, I’m just noticing them more. Either way, this little Miniland scene by Matt De Lanoy had me laughing uproariously. I realize it’s not a new joke, but Matt’s LEGO build is very well executed, with instantly recognizable characters, innovative parts usage (more on that below), and very cool lighting.

Star Wars: A New Hip

Matt built this as part of the current Iron Builder challenge, with the barbell accessory piece as the seed part. Expect to see a lot of posts over the coming days featuring this piece…

Because zombies are people too

This hilarious series of vignettes was created by Swedish character-building duo Rickard & Helen – aka SuckMyBrick. They document a unique approach to curing Zombieism called the “Van Heckling” approach, whereby zombies are rehabilitated by simply encouraging them to engaged in everyday activities! What could possibly go wrong… Let’s take a look, shall we?

There’s nothing more mundane that a little grocery shopping. Apparently one of the patients needs a bit of help getting around, though. Can’t wait to see how they get on at the checkout:

Next it’s time for some work placement. Waiting tables shouldn’t be a challenge. Hey doc’, you *might* not wanna eat that:

After a long day, why not kick back at the night club? Just avoid the off-duty zombie hunters:

But don’t even think about trying to escape rehab. The medical staff will not rest until they have you safely back in custody:

Everything’s a product

We know you all just *loved* the Zeus vs Thor brick film we recently featured, by the potty-mouthed YouTubers Epic Rap Battles of History. Well, like a bad penny, they’re back! This time providing a rap segment for this irreverent (PG rated) take on the The LEGO Movie by Honest Trailers.

Epic Rap Battles of History embraces the brick for divine face-off

For its Season 4 bout between the Greek god Zeus and the Norse god Thor, the hugely popular YouTube channel Epic Rap Battles of History turned to Forrest Whaley and his team of stop-motion animators to give it the LEGO treatment. And the result is hilarious! Make sure to check out the entertaining behind the scenes video too.

You have arrived at your destination

Every new Apple product has it’s (well publicized) teething problems. While my older iPhone has remained un-bent, no matter how many times I put it in my industrial jaw vice, it still to this day enjoys sending me either 1 mile North or South of my intended destination. And Brick Vader clearly knows what I’m talking about, as evidenced by this beautifully put together vignette:

Back to school

The summer vacation is drawing to an end, and kids in the US are now drifting back to school. It’s such a magical time of year …for us parents! This vignette by Ted Andes celebrates the new school year by turning a couple of high school stereotypes on their head…

An aggressive movement

It’s been fun to see folks getting a lot of use out of the new eyeball pieces from the very popular Mixels sets. But legendary Japanese builder Moko has just taken us into a whole new realm with this build, which is literally a piece of crap!

Hopefully this isn’t Moko’s commentary on the Mixels theme, as I think it would make a swell additional to the forthcoming Brown Fang Gang range of Mixels sets. Maybe the next image will put things in context…

…or maybe not. Why is the poo angry? Why does it have a tongue? Is this what can happen if I don’t get enough fiber in my diet? Unfortunately Moko’s usually very detailed blog does not yield any clues, just a bunch of potty humor. I thoroughly approve!

Goobers

That’s right, Goobers, from our mutual friend Chris Maddison. Here is how it goes: Yellow Goober tells a joke at the expense of Red Goober and hilarity ensues! Welcome to the weekend.

Honey, I’m home!

Flickr user Hippotam created this hilarious little scene for a contest, the purpose of which was to depict the same scene occurring in both 1963 and 2063. The only thing I am confused about is whether that little green critter on the floor in 2063 is a pet, or the result of the affair?!
