“This project make possible to represent at least six of Molière’s most famous comedy : Dom Juan, Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, The Imaginary Invalid (Le Malade imaginaire), The Learned Ladies (Les Femmes savantes) and The Affected Young Ladies (Les Précieuses ridicules). But, of course, minifigures and pieces can be used to build anything you want !”
The Lego French Classical Stage is a Lego Ideas project created by Campistron1984. The stage is based on the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, a French theatre in the seventeenth century. This one has been set up to feature the Molière Comedies, and if you want you can build and create new backdrops to host any number of shows. The back of the theatre can easily be switched out. This Lego MOC comes equipped with a salon set, a dinning room, and a bedroom set. Also feature are a couple of trap doors, so you can fool even the most skeptical Minifigure. On the Lego Ideas page you can also view a set based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, to get an idea of how this thing works.

It has finally happened, the new Lego Ideas #010 set The Big Bang Theory (21302) has been released. If you made it to San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) this year, you were able to get your hands on the new set a few weeks early. As for the rest of the world, we will need to wait until August 1st. The whole thing is made up of 479 pieces and will be priced at $€59.99. This is not a cheap set, and the price per piece is high.
Brickset has posted one of the first reviews of this set (here). The review is full of high resolution photos, and walks you through the basic build process. It is also sprinkled with comments from Alice, who just happens to be a fan of The Big Bang Theory. Make sure to read the whole review!
“I think it’s a great set for TBBT fans that are not already LEGO fans because even I, who hasn’t played with LEGO for 10 years, wanted to build it just so I could recreate the set.…”

Game of Thrones is back on TV and that means a whole lot of intrigue and trickery is afoot. Legoagogo has taken his fandom of Game of Thrones and Lego to create a whole series of photos and vignettes. So far they have created Minifigures for the Hound, Arya Stark, Brienne, Jaime Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Stannis, Davos, Melisandre, Theon Greyjoy, Ramsay Bolton, Jon Snow, Ygritte, Hodor, and Bran Stark. This small selection of the possible characters just happens to represent some of Legoagogo’s favorites.
The little vignettes have all been photographed extremely well. They are all instantly recognizable. Check out Ramsay Bolton getting ready to eat some Lego sausage.
And, if you happened to catch the most recent episode then this scene (or something similar) will be fresh in your mind. That Red Witch sure knows how to build a fire.

Just in time for the season premiere of Game of Thrones, Guy Himber, has created King Joffrey, Long May He Reign. This television shows most infamous villain is looking appropriately evil. Some of these Lego pieces have been put to novel use. Check out the Minifigure arms, used for fingers. And, it even looks like the One Ring is adorning the top of the crown. Even in Lego you still want to slap Joffrey across his smug face.

The Golden Girls Lego Living Room and Kitchen Modular Set is the creation of lostsleep. It took this Lego Ideas project only a few weeks to obtain over 10,000 supporters. The show set is about as accurate to the classic television show as you could expect. It features the iconic round table, a foyer, and living room all set up like a live television show set. You just need to add your live audience, cameras, and production crew. The four main women are instantly recognizable. You have Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, and Blanche. This is such an awesome set, and I cannot wait to see what the official Lego response will be!
“This is a recreation of the Golden Girls House used in filming the popular 1980’s show that is still watched daily around the world. It is the Foyer, Living Room, and Kitchen built like a TV set, with one wall removed and a full view into the space. It comes with 5 minifigures including Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, Blanche, and Stanley. It has been meticulously recreated to have opening cupboards and fridge in the kitchen, Wicker Sofa and Chairs, a hallway backdrop, a storage closet in the kitchen, and an outdoor area with potted plants and a hose.
I have recreated many classic scenes from the show, including a visit from Burt Reynolds, Rose shooting Blanche’s Vase, Dorothy Playing “Grab That Dough” and Rose rescuing her Teddy Bear from a mean little girl.”

The crazy imagination of the Adventure Time TV is a great match for Lego. That is why there have been so many great MOCs and Lego Idea projects (see here). One of the newest Lego Adventure Time projects is titled Brick-built Adventure Time Figures, created by aBetterMonkey. The project proposes 15 Brick-Build Figures that total up to 640 Lego pieces. A whole lot of Lego Ideas projects are way too large to ever be produced by Lego, but 640 pieces is a pretty good sweet spot. The idea is to create a set of toys rather than a display model, but these look awesome! Make sure to go vote for the Lego Idea.
The Lego Adventure Time Figures would include:
- Finn with his sword
- Princess Bubblegum
- Lady Rainicorn
- Marceline with her axe-bass
- BMO with joysticks
- the Ice King with ice lightings
- Lumpy Space Princess
- Tree Trunks
- Flame Princess
- Earl of Lemongrab with his sword
- the Lich with green flames
- the snail

For a little while now there have been rumors of an official Lego Scooby Doo theme for 2015. It certainly is not the most demanded theme, but Lego is trying its best to win over all our hearts. Everything is being timed for maximum exposure, with a new Scooby Doo TV show titled “Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!” premiering on Cartoon Network soon. The first official images from Lego are starting to be released. The most popular set will probably be the Mystery Machine (75902) which will retail at $29.99. This set features Shaggy, Scooby Doo, and Fred fighting off a zombie and evil tree. Scooby Doo is looking especially impressive, with some fine printing that puts most of the other Lego dogs to shame.
The current line up features 5 sets covering a good amount of the show: Mummy Museum Mystery (75900), Mystery Plane Adventures (75901), Mystery Machine (75902), Haunted Lighthouse (75903), and Mystery Mansion (75904). The whole gang will be represented in Minifigure form. Fred, Shaggy, Scooby-Doo, Daphne, and Velma. Hopefully we won’t need to purchase the whole theme to complete the team.
Interestingly, there will be a special Lego episode, probably animated as a 3D CGI cartoon…
“In another first, the Scooby Gang will be animated in LEGO form. In 2015, fans can look forward to a 22-minute LEGO special, featuring Scooby-Doo, and produced in partnership with Warner Bros. Animation. In addition, Warner Bros. Animation will also be producing made-for-video movie titles, which will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in the coming years.”
Lego has also been teasing Lego Scooby Doo across its social media this week:
Futurama is one of the best TV shows ever made, and it’s no wonder that some truly epic MOCs have been created. But none are as cute as this Lego Bender. This little robot is featured in a creation titled “A Saturday Bender.” This vignette features the little robot doing what he does best. Getting completely plastered while watching Saturday morning cartoons. The use of the Lego flexible tubes and some creative part use makes this the cutest Bender Bending Rodríguez ever. Also check out that retro futuristic television.
A Saturday Bender is the creation of Sean and Steph Mayo, and you can view it here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legocy/16188302121/
Brooklyn Nine-Nine recently featured Lego in a scene with Detective Sergeant Terence “Terry” Jeffords (played by Terry Crews). Afterwards something awesome happened. Reddit user austoncall posted a whole bunch of behind the scenes photographs showing what went into creating the Lego tower. Although it took a whole lot more work then someone would expect, the Lego tower looked great as it was being destroyed on set.
The whole project started out as about $300 worth of brand new Lego. Everything was built with 2 complete sets of the Lego King’s Castle (70404), 2 Builders of Tomorrow (6177) sets, 2 Lego Creative Buckets (10662), 1 Lego Creative Building Kit (5749), 1 Lego Education Doors, Windows, & Roof Tiles set (9386), plus a few baseplates and other miscellaneous parts.
The greatest challenge to creating these props, was figuring out what kind of style to build the tower. A sleek modern tower that the best AFOL would create, or a tower created out of a hodgepodge of bricks (like a child would build). After a few attempts, the show decided on something in between. A good decision, as it is instantly recognizable as Lego. In the end three towers were needed, so that the crew could film multiple takes and angles. If you look closely the three towers look similar, but are actually slightly different.

Lego and Adventure Time are an almost perfect match. Fans of both have been hoping for Lego to pick up an official license. Jazlecraz has created an incredibly detailed Lego CUUSOO project based on Adventure Time. This is the best way to get Lego to notice the demand for Adventure Time. There are currently over 9,000 supporters for this project, and when it hits 10,000 Lego has to officially review the proposal and make a decision. Lego has officially commented on the Adventure Time Project, and noted that no new molds would be created for a CUUSOO project. Meaning that the minifigures have been set aside in favor for a micro scale theme. Everybody would still love to see Finn, Jake, BMO, Marceline, Princess Bubblegum, Ice King, and Lemongrab get their own microfigures.
The Adventure Time Project is focused on created one amazing micro scale Tree Fort. Consisting of about 400 Lego pieces in its current incarnation. This means that it would fit in with the current $34.99 price point that Lego has favored for their CUUSOO theme. There are also six micro scale Lego sets that have been added as a bonus. Showing what could be done if this becomes a full theme. One thing is certain, if these were real there would be a whole lot of Finn and Jake figures.
- The Micro Ice Castle features Finn, Jake, the Ice King, Penguins, and the Wildberry Princess.
- Marceline’s House would feature Finn, Jake, Marceline, Ice King, and Princess Bubblegum.
- Micro Lumpy Space would feature Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, the Lumpy Space Princess and the Lumpy Space King.
- Castle Lemongrab would feature Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Lemongrab, and Lemongrab 2.
- The Micro Candy Castle would beature Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Lady Rainicorn, and two other figures (I don’t know their names!).
- And finally, the Micro Tree Fort would feature Finn, Jake, BMO, Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, and the Ice King.
