Lego Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and Friends on CUUSOO

BrentWaller's Lego Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Set

Lego is gearing up to release their first Ghostbusters themed set. After the Lego CUUSOO Back to the Future project was accepted and announced the idea of a Ghostbusters themed set gained popularity. The creator of Lego Ghostbusters (21108) is BrentWaller, who has recently proposed a new Ghostbusters set. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. This guy is huge, and when it is taking over your Lego Modular City, who are you going to call?

This giant gooey monster is not alone, he is being proposed with three accompanying Minifigures. Everybody’s favorite bad guy, Walter Peck. Dana Barrett as the Gatekeeper. And, Louis Tully as the Keymaster. These three are ready to foil whatever plans the Ghostbusters have ready.

“Random Facts:

  • Over 34cm or 13 inches tall
  • If I was to use a similar ratio of a human compared to the Stay Puft as there is in the movie, That Marshmallow Man would be 68cm or 27 inches tall, which makes this version exactly half scale compared to a minifig.
  • Estimated 1800 Pieces (This could be reduced fairly easily, it was more due to my limited piece library and budget)
  • Estimated 60 hours design and build time.”

Cool Lego Ice Planet 2002 Art by Mr–Jack

Lego Ice Planet 2002, Mr--Jack

Ice Planet is one of the odd 1990’s space themes. It first showed up in 1993, and its cool blue and orange color palette was a huge change when compared to the previous space theme, Space Police II. Commander Cold and his research team had to withstand the hostile planet of Krysto. Equipped with trans-orange chainsaws, the most bad ass weapon Lego has ever molded, the team set out to science.

Even though Ice Planet only lasted one year it managed to make a huge impression on many people. Mr–Jack recently created this amazing painting, inspired by this cool Lego theme.  The giant research vehicle in the background is impressive.

Lego Simpsons Minifigures Review (71005) by WhiteFang

WhiteFang's Lego Simpsons Minifigures Review

The newest Lego Minifigures Series is almost here. The Lego Simpsons Minifigures will be available for sale in May, at a price point of $3.99. All 16 Minifigs include unique head sculpts and in most cases new accessories. There is a whole lot of printed pieces in this series. Even though the Minifig heads are definitely Simpsons their bodies and parts mix and match pretty well with other themes. WhiteFang has just posted an early Lego Simpsons Minifigures Review over on Eurobricks.

WhiteFang's Lego Simpsons Minifigures Review 03

Each box of the Lego Simpsons will include at least 3 complete sets of Minifigures. The Simpsons family makes up the most common Minifigs, and the smaller characters are the rarest. There are 5 Homer Simpsons, 5 Marge Simpsons, 5 Bart Simpsons, 4 Lisa Simpsons, 4 Maggie Simpsons, 4 Krusty the Clowns, 4 Ned Flanders, 4 Itchys, and 4 Scratchys. The hard to find characters come in sets of 3, with Grandpa Simpson, Apu, Mr. Burns, Nelson, Clancy Wiggum, Ralph Wiggum, and Milhouse. This is probably the best assortment. It favors the whole family, but doesn’t make any of the other character extremely rare. Luckily all of these Minifigs should be pretty easy to feel inside the packaging, as each character is unique.

WhiteFang's Lego Simpsons Minifigures Review 04

Lego spent a lot of time creating these new Minifigs and it shows. The attention to detail, and fan references in these Minifigs are all perfect. The one exception is that the fat characters (Homer, Wiggum, and Krusty) look a little bit weird with the default Lego body. It looks like everyone has been on some amazing diet. It would be interesting to see the stomach piece from the Hobbit theme be appropriated here. Still you can sign me up for a whole set. They will look great with the Simpsons House.

The New Lego Simpsons Collectible Minifigures Are Perfectly Cromulent

Lego Simpsons Collectible Minifigures

Lego has release the first official images for the upcoming Lego Simpsons Collectible Minifigures. These will be available in May at a $3.99 price point. Which happens to be a dollar more then the previous Minifigure Series. The good news is that the new sculpts and accessories kind of make up for this increase. When Lego released the Simpsons House (71006) in February, a whole lot of people were concerned by the facial expressions on the Minifigures. These new figures should make up for that, because all of them (except Maggie) have a more neutral expression. Hopefully this is the first wave of many Minifigs. It would be great to see these last as long as the World of Springfield action figures.
