LEGO CUUSOO News: Great Scott! There ARE Minifigs With The Delorean! | From Bricks To Bothans
So I guess this is happening? It's funny that the LEGO community is complaining about the design of the LEGO DELOREAN THAT IS ACTUALLY COMING OUT.

Revisiting the “Mrs. Doubtfire” Cartoon Directed by Chuck Jones | Cartoon Brew
This is cool. I've always loved this animation from Mrs. Doubtfire and somehow I never knew it was by Chuck Jones.

Sorry Consoles, Apple’s Controller Support Spells Trouble For You
I've been waiting patiently for Apple to enable apps and controllers on the Apple TV and completely disrupt the game industry (again), and I think it's going to happen really soon.

Retro Thing: Superman’s Black-And-White Flights On The Silver Screen
I just finished a book about the history of Superman and this post was perfect timing. It’s funny what a problem taking off and landing was for old-school TV and Film techniques.

That LEGO Back to the Future Set is Totally Happening You Guys

As if it wasn’t hard enough to find the LEGO Minecraft set that was released through their Kickstarter-like CUUSOO site, LEGO has just announced the next project that’s getting the really-for-real treatment is this awesome Back to the Future Delorean.

It’ll probably take forever for this to come out, but you know they’re going to sell out like crazy. I was really hoping they would make the Modular Western Town, but apparently they have a new Western theme of their own brewing and they felt it would conflict.

What do you think, will you be picking this one up?

Back to the Future: The Game Gets a Trailer

Posted 3 years ago by Games

Marty! The first trailer for Telltale Games’ Back to the Future is out and burning up the intewebs, and rightly so. It looks awesome. Granted, there’s no gameplay footage yet, but the art direction and voice acting looks great.

Christopher Lloyd is revisiting his Doc Brown character, and although Michael J. Fox isn’t joining in, it sounds like the actor they got to play his part is a pretty good choice. If the gameplay is enjoyable this game could be a great example of nostalgic properties being put to good use rather than exploited.
