Marvel Super Heroes are assembling for an action-packed, brick-smashing good time! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment announced today that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will be available from autumn 2013 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, the Wii U system and Windows PC, as well as the Nintendo DS handheld system, Nintendo 3DS™ handheld system and PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the first instalment in the highly successful LEGO videogame franchise to feature famous Marvel characters.
Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture have put together all-inclusive how-to guides for creating astonishing fighter ships from the Sine Mora universe with LEGO® bricks. The carefully built fighters and their respective guides can be downloaded here: www.digitalreality.eu/media/sinemora/SineMoraShips.zip
Bringing the Merenstein VI and BS4-VR Soprano to life via LEGO, Sine Mora was released on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft earlier this year with an exceptional critical response garnering a scores of 4.5/5 from Joystiq, 8/10 from EDGE, and 9/10 at IGN. Sine Mora is set to release soon on PlayStation®Network.
The beauty of the Merenstein VI is its adorned traditional black and red Eternal War colors, along with a golden rose decal on its wing. The BS4-VR Soprano had a limited production run with only 210 ships, making it one of the most expensive fighters ever built on Seol, including 10 special editions exclusively created for the Imperial Intelligence.
Two men put in many hours to create Batman’s Batcave in LEGO form. Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey built the giant playset and it looks amazing. It has everything you would expect from the Dark Knight’s domicile and the attention to detail is tremendously impressive. Check out more photos of it below and head to the link at the bottom to see even more at their Flickr page.
Warner Bros., DC Comics and Lego combine to bring the Lego DC Universe to life in their first ever animated movie. Batman has had success in the Lego world through video games and his last game brought the Justice League in to help out. Now they will get their own feature film scheduled for release in the spring of 2013. Seeing as how a live action Justice League has been floundering for years this will be a nice little something while it seeks to find its legs. Clancy Brown returns to voice Lex Luthor and it sounds like Kevin Conroy is back as Batman. Mark Hamill has retired as The Joker for the time being but the guy doing the new voice seems to be going for a proper impersonation of Hamill’s take to say the least. This movie looks like a lot of fun and DC continues with its outright owning of the animated film market.

This new developer diary is the first in a series of videos in which TT Games reveals how LEGO® The Lord of the Rings is perhaps one of most cinematic videogames they have created to date.
Lego started in 1932 as wooden toys built by carpenter, Ole Kirk Christiansen in Denmark. The name lego comes from the Danish phrase leg godt and means “play well”. In 1947 the toys began being made out of plastic and in 1949 Lego started producing the interlocking bricks we are most familiar with. If all the Lego bricks ever produced were to be divided equally among a world population of six billion, each person would have 62 Lego bricks. According to an article in BusinessWeek in 2006, Lego could be considered the world’s No. 1 tire manufacturer; the factory produces about 306 million tiny rubber tires a year.
