The epitome of a win-win? Lego and Batman. We knew this already.
If you go to The Art of the Brick, though, it takes on a whole new lustre. (And it’s not just all black. Or very dark grey). And Bats has brought his signal, his friends, his foes, his cars, his multi-coloured masks, and some lovely cinematics… as well as Supe in every guise, Wonder Woman and her Invisible Jet (yes really), The Flash and some classic DC comics covers all laid out in brickwork.
Plus there’s Lego to play with, and the ubiquitous Lego shop that will make you wish you’d bought more money – or less kids. Even the big ones.
Lego creates the ultimate minifigure. Beyond the Star Wars Advent Calendar, beyond the irresistible £2 blind-box (bag?) collectibles, even beyond the ghastly horror that is Lego Friends… they have made the Cat Lady. Complete with long grey hair and fuzzy jumper. And cat, obviously.
I think she should come with more than one, mind you.
Thanks to GeeksareSexy for the flawless timing of this monster on my Facebook feed this afternoon…
It’s 63 inches long and weighs approximately ten and a half pounds – apparently an accurate scale for the Halo gun in-game, which is cited as being 5.5 feet long. Plus it has all the trimmings – removable magazine, sliding bolt and moving safety.
