Alex Nidhogg's Awesome Lego Gaming Room

Check out this awesome Lego gaming room, created by Alex Nídhögg. This gaming room features everything you need. Pizza, Pepsi, surround sound, a flat screen TV, a life size Stormtrooper, a Gameboy, a Squishee, and even the most important item: a credit card. This Lego Minifigure is ready to spend days here. There are so many new video games to play. Call of Duty, Dragon Age Inquisition, Assassin’s Creed, Grand Theft Auto V, Farcry 4, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, etc. Too bad there is just not enough time to play them all.

Lego Assassin’s Creed Rouge: Shay Patrick Cormack Minifigure

Logan Fulford's Lego Assassin's Creed Rouge

Assassin’s Creed is out with a new video game. Titled Assassin’s Creed Rouge, it is a duel release with Assassin’s Creed Unity. This has to be one of the most confusing video game release schedules of all time. Although Unity is getting more press, it seems the smaller title Rouge is getting better a fan reception. Logan Fulford has created an extremely detailed custom Minifigure based on the games protagonist, Shay Patrick Cormack. This little Lego guy features custom sculpting and custom painting to achieve its look. The paint work is well done, especially when you consider the fact that this is only 4cm tall. Hopefully we will see more Lego Assassin’s Creed stuff in the future, it seems like a theme that has a lot of overlap with Lego fans.

The International Hotel, A Cool Lego Modular Building

lgorlando's Lego International Hotel 01

It seems like every major city has an International Hotel. And, it is about time your Lego city got one too. An International Hotel would fit perfectly in the Lego Modular Building theme. The stark white trim, gold accents, and light blue color of this hotel gives this hotel a very regal look. This is the place all the rich Lego Minifigures would stay. There is a lot going on with the facade here. In a lot of ways this Lego International Hotel feels like an official Lego set. The little details, like the white round piece in the windows, the clock, and the grey statues all feel like something Lego would do. Which is a compliment. This is a really cool modular style building.

Lego Scooby Dooby Doo, Where Are You?

Lego Scooby Doo Rumors

If there was one theme I was not expecting to hear rumors that Lego would produce, its Scooby Doo. It seems that Lego has been working on a spooky theme, and now its seems an official Lego Scooby Doo theme is the top contender for this release. This new theme would be hitting shelves around May or June of 2015, and will consist of 4 sets. It seems that the iconic Mystery Van, a Haunted House, and two unknown sets are in the works. With the whole gang represented in Minifigure form. Fred, Shaggy, Scooby-Doo, Daphne, and Velma. Also expect to see a few of the monsters represented. I wonder if they will be regular Minifigures wearing costumes? Because that would be fun.

Hothbricks reported on a Lego Scooby Doo theme first. Their user Miniworld seems to be confirming rumors too: http://www.hothbricks.com/2014/11/rumeurs-2015-grande-roue-nouveau-theme/#comments

Lego Lowrider, Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Alex Jones's Lego Lowrider, Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 01

It looks like the Lego Friends have a new ride, or maybe Homer Simpson upgraded the sedan. Either way this Lego Lowrider is awesome. Alex Jones (Orion Pax) created this MOC titled the “Flamingo Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.” It is always interesting to see what people can do with Lego pieces, especially those that have a limited color palette. It features a tri-tone paint job (hot pink, pink and purple), with chrome accents and whitewall tires. The car has hot pink wood paneling and the windshield is even transparent pink.  This Oldsmobile has style.
