The LEGO NINJAGO Movie now in theatres

Posted by ,

The day we have all been waiting for (or perhaps dreading, if not a fan of the LCU or NINJAGO) has finally arrived. The LEGO NINJAGO Movie hits theatres in North America and elsewhere! There were no Thursday night showings, oddly, but theatres will start screenings later in the morning depending on where you are. Those in the UK have to wait until October 13th to see the film.

While box office is expected to reach $35-45 million this opening weekend (which is no small feat), TLNM’s Rotten Tomatoes score is quite low and certainly not what most of us expected - 47% at time of writing. For comparison, both The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie are over 90%. Opinions will very much boil down to individual expectations!

Furthermore, to celebrate the release of the film, Shop@Home and Brand Stores have begun a new promotion: you’ll receive a 30609 Lloyd polybag with any purchase of $50 / 30€ / £25 or more. Please use these links to order and help support Brickset, thanks:

Blocks Magazine issue 36 out now

Posted by ,

Here's word of the latest issue:

This month’s issue of Blocks magazine, on sale today, is a celebration of The LEGO NINJAGO Movie with exclusive behind the scenes access and a mind blowing big build.

If fans are wondering how LEGO NINJAGO is being translated to the big screen, then this issue of Blocks has the answers. Our all-access look at The LEGO NINJAGO Movie begins in Hollywood, with interviews with Dave Franco – voice of Lloyd, the Green Ninja – and director Charlie Bean. The pair take Blocks through the process of adapting NINJAGO into an animated feature, illustrated with never before seen concept art.

Back in Billiund, the key designers behind The LEGO NINJAGO Movie take readers through the process of working alongside a major movie production, explaining the development of the sets, their contribution to the film itself and teasing a few little Easter eggs to watch out for on screen. Simon Lucas, Nicolaas Vás and Chris Stamp also provide a focused look at the development of 70620 NINJAGO City, demonstrating how it became the masterpiece that it is.

LEGO House AFOL event tomorrow

Posted by ,

The LEGO House in Billund -- home of the brick -- opens its doors to the public next Thursday, 28th September.

However, tomorrow, LEGO User Group and Fan Media ambassadors along with around 500 AFOLs, many of whom are attending the Skaerbaek Fan Weekend, will be there for a special preview day when we'll be able to see and experience the house for ourselves prior to its official opening.

Myself and MeganL will be there and I'll be tweeting during the day, @brickset, hashtags #LEGOHouse and #homeofthebrick, and we'll be posting regular updates on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

I'm hoping to be able to purchase The LEGO House architecture set so we'll post a review of that, and of the actual house, as soon as we can.

Are you going too? Let us know in the comments and maybe we can meet up.

LEGO Mosaics from Bright Bricks

Posted by ,

If you've ever wanted to make a LEGO mosaic from a photograph you've probably found that sourcing the bricks, particularly 1x1s in esoteric colours, often makes them prohibitively expensive.

To help with this problem Bright Bricks has launched a mosaic service on its online shop. Here's how it works:

  • Specify the size you want, from 48x48 to 128x128 studs and whether you want it monochrome or colour
  • Upload a photograph and place your order
  • A digital proof of your image will be sent to you by email in a day or so to confirm it looks OK. Once you're happy with it...
  • Sit back, relax and await the arrival of the baseplates, 1x1 bricks and instructions.

So, what about the price? Pretty reasonable, actually...
