The LEGO Movie 2’s sewer babies just got bigger

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part officially opens today (be sure to read our LEGO Movie 2 review), and to mark the occasion, “Big Daddy” Nelson has taken a few of the movie’s smallest characters and given them a huge makeover. Built in the style of the classic 3723 Creator Minifigure set, these giant sewer babies look just like their miniature counterparts from the TLM2 Accessory Set.

They have even more range than the toddler elements they’re based on, featuring double-sided heads and movable hands. They’re also more complex than you might think, with some clever mosaic work needed to translate the prints on the torsos and heads into bricks.

A tribute to the Courageous

My 22-year-old cousin, Cody, has wanted to be a firefighter his entire life. He’s never even entertained the idea of anything else. This summer he was gone for weeks at a time, working 14-17 hours a day, through the night, battling horrendous wildfires along the West Coast of the US. In addition to the fires, he and his companions faced rattlesnakes, hornets, dangerous terrain, and heat waves beyond those from the flames. They put their lives on the line. These custom minifigs created by Brick Police are a tribute to Wildland Firefighters everywhere. So this one’s for the heroes. It’s for the selfless men and women who do everything they can to save lives and homes. We thank you for your service.

Thank you to the Firefighters battling California fires

Citizen Brick Day 5.5 brings short-run prototypes and other rare minifigs – Sat, Sep 21 [News]

A couple times a year, our friends over at Citizen Brick open their vault and pull out all the prototypes and other rare pieces that they’ve only produced in limited amounts. Because their quality is indistinguishable from official LEGO products, we’ve been huge fans of Citizen Brick for many years. As always, one-off items will be released every couple of hours, and tend to disappear quickly, so check CitizenBrick.com regularly to pick up unusual items that may never be produced as products.

Full disclosure: Citizen Brick is an advertising partner of The Brothers Brick. However, our advertisers have no influence over The Brothers Brick’s news coverage.

LEGO giveaway 5005358 Minifigure Factory Set [Review]

The Minifigure Factory is a Gift-With-Purchase item that is quite unique in its own right and quite different from the regular promotional items — typically a build-and-display piece or a minifigure in a polybag. This set uses the box itself as part of the play construct. The theme is of a LEGO factory employee inspecting minifigures that roll off the assembly line, celebrating the 40th birthday of the first introduction of Minifigures. Let’s jump right in and take a look at what’s distinctive about this giveaway.

Minifigure hairstyles – which styles were a cut above the rest in 2017? [Feature]

Looking back, it felt as though 2017 was a year full of minifigures sporting cool hairstyles. I imagine the release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigure Series had a key role in supplying these modern hairstyles, along with Batman and the odd Star Wars eclectic hairstyle. I thought it would be interesting to step inside LEGO’s minifigure hair salon to take a look back at some of the more interesting styles that LEGO introduced for our little friends last year.
