Given how good The LEGO Movie was, it may be hard for all of its spin-offs to live up to the original. Still, we’re hopeful that this big-screen take on the popular ninja-themed minifigs will be as action-packed and funny as its first trailer looks. It’s certainly got an awesome voice cast.
Adam Savage joined Imgur’s 2016 Secret Santa and made a custom NERF sniper rifle as his gift. He went for a weathered sci-fi look and beefed up its firing mechanism. He kinda borked the magazine with paint, but overall he did a great job. Finished build at 29:08.
LEGO presents three new city construction sets in its Architecture Series. Builders can now create models of iconic structures from Chicago, Illinois, Sydney, Australia, and London, England, including the Willis (Sears) Tower, the Sydney Opera House, and the London Eye ferris wheel.
With new episodes of to David Lynch’s cult classic headed to Showtime this spring, it only makes sense that we’d get some sweet merch, in the form of big-headed Pop! and normal-headed action figures based on the show’s quirky cast of characters. Available later in 2017.
Quantum Mechanix’s gleaming 1:1 scale metal reproduction of Bats’ versatile throwing toy, based on the one seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League. Cast from zinc alloy and includes a magnetic display stand. Measures 8.5″ x 3.25″.
YouTuber BANANENBUURMAN loves to build over-the-top dioramas and environments using a LEGO model train as his main form of transportation. He’s built a set that runs through an aquarium tunnel, a ridiculously long track, and even figured out how to do a loop de loop.
Chevrolet took wraps off its latest car – the Batmobile from the LEGO Batman Movie. They’re marketing it just like their other cars, and we bet if you did pay them $48 million, they’d figure out a way to make you one. For now, we’ll just have to settle for this. Or THIS.
Bats and Supes might have been mortal enemies the last time they met up, but they can’t stay mad at each other forever. Stage an official reconciliation in your bathtub with these goofy rubber duckies modeled after DC’s two biggest superheroes. Also sold individually.
Hot Toys ends the year with a bang by announcing this incredibly faithful sixth-scale action figure of the Dark Knight as he appears in the Batman: Arkham Knight video game. The 13″ tall figure comes with two faces, four pairs of hands and a ton of weapons and equipment.
Sideshow Collectibles nailed it with this badass 23″ tall sculpt of Batman’s muscular nemesis, standing proudly atop a crushed Batsignal beneath his size 20 lace-up, and injects green super-steroids into his bloodstream. We love the angry alternative head baring his chompers.
ThinkGeek presents a unique take on the traditional hourglass with a version that’s filled with magnetic filings instead of sand. As the tiny metal particles fall to the bottom, they stand up forming unusual organic shapes. Keep in mind that it’s not for actual timekeeping.
One of the coolest concepts we’ve seen on the LEGO Ideas‘ website, Brett Cuviello’s Iron Giant build is simply spectacular, and does a great job replicating the giant robot from Brad Bird’s 1999 animated classic. The 2,000 piece set would have to be pricy, but we desperately want one.
