Lord of The Rings Lego Will Make You Smile

Lego announced their new line of Lord of the Rings themed toys this week. It seems astounding that this doesn’t already exist but in the complex world of movie licencing I guess that’s how things go sometimes. Whether the rapidly nearing onset of Hobbitmania will lead to the release of a Lego LOTR video game remains to be seen, but for the time being content yourselves by basking in the cuteness of the real things.

The Gollum one is awesome but if I had to pick one I think I’d need to go for Boromir. Who doesn’t want a lego Sean Bean on their shelf?

Toy War with Awesome Special Effects!!

In case you missed it, YouTuber Shay Carl and his son made what is very likely the most epic toy-soldier-based war flick ever. The sound and visual effects are just awesome, more than anything I’ve seen before, and give you the feeling of watching imagination manifested through technology. And also lots of stuff exploding, which is a huge plus. Check it out and then spend five minutes wishing that was possible when you were a kid.
