LEGO Disney Princesses

Did you know LEGO is releasing a Disney Princess line in 2014? I had no idea. I’m not exactly their target market, but I can tell you that I’ve got quite a few nieces who are going to eat these sets up. Not surprisingly, the minifigures are based on the LEGO Friends line, but I don’t think they look that bad.

The first sets will be based around Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Tangled, and Brave.

The LEGO Movie

Man, I am so ridiculously pumped for The LEGO Movie. It looks hilarious and I love the design of the film and how the characters move like real LEGOs instead of the bendy style of the LEGO video games and TV shows. The cast is amazing, and now I’m excited about all the upcoming tie-in LEGO sets.

The entire next series of collectible minifigures are from the movie and they’re all great. Abraham Lincoln? Panda Suit guy? Crazy hillbilly robot thingy? Awesome.

Besides the minifigures, there are going to be 17 sets based on the movie, and they look like so much fun. You can see them all over at Euro Bricks, but here are a couple of my favorites.

The Top Hat Sasquatch team reads a lot of blog posts every day, and some slip through the crack or just don’t warrant their own post. That’s where Missing Links comes in. Every few days we collect the best links we’ve come across and pass them on to you.

Galactus Lands In New LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Trailer
The upcoming LEGO Marvel game looks ridiculously awesome and I can’t wait to get addicted to it. Sidenote: are any of you planning on getting the Xbox One or Playstation 4? At this point I’m not planning on it but chances are I’ll get one eventually. I have no clue which one will be/should be better though.

TMNT Season 2 Preview
It looks like season 2 of the new TMNT series is going to be awesome for us diehard Turtle fans. As I expected, Baxter Stockman is going to get a more 80s (read: Fly) makeover and Slash, Casey Jones, Wingnut, and other favorites are joining the show. Also, it sounds like the producers intend on bringing in Bebop and Rocksteady at some point, so that’s awesome.

Batman is a Hoarder!
Kerry Callen’s work is awesome, but this comic about Batman being a hoarder is my favorite.

Harvey Weinstein and Disney Reunite for ‘Artemis Fowl’ Adaptation
I remember reading the first book when it came out and I enjoyed it, but it’s been a decade or so. Regardless, it’s surprising it’s taken so long to get this movie released with all the YA books getting the movie treatment lately.

A Yeti minifigure!? That means we're closer to getting a Sasquatch!

‘Adventure Time’ Intro Done Entirely in LEGO

Posted 6 years ago by Stuff

Everything is better with LEGO. Even the awesomely awesome Cartoon Network series Adventure Time can be made better when animated with those interlocking blocks.

This video got me thinking that there should be some official Lego sets from the Land of Ooo. Turns out there already is a Cuusoo project with over 6,100 supporters. The fan-designed set needs 10,000 fans before it gets official review from the Lego Cuusoo team.

Cartoon Network is airing new episodes of Adventure Time, now in its fifth season, on Monday nights. Production has already begun on episodes for a sixth season. Here’s hoping the LEGO opening gets used for a future episode.

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.
