LEGO is dropping a “Nintendo Entertainment System” this August, friends. And my word, what an overlap on the Nerd Venn Diagram. LEGOs. Retro gaming. Nostalgia.
I’m pretty whatever about Rogue One. But man, of course *that* Darth Vader scene made my fanboy geek-prostate explode. Now! Now it’s been remade in LEGO.
Yes, yes I think this movie is going to be quite fun.
Rey’s time at Niima Outpost is one of my favorite segments of The Force Awakens. There’s so much glorious goddamn activity taking place, with monsters built with practical effects stomping around. Looking odd. Looking real. It’s great. I imagine it’s a hit with other people, especially since one LEGOWizard was inspired enough to recreate it in LEGO.
Some people just want to watch the LEGO World Burn, right?
We have crossed the threshold, folks. Into a new world, where promises are kept, and Justice is True. Or, at the very least, where there exists a fully-operational LEGO Chicken McNugget vending machine. I’m not certain, but the latter may actually be a better world than the former.
