This is my fav:
""Finally, a movie from LEGO that is not 3D animation!""

Why do I get the feeling that the WB's people continue to try and find ways to make some kind of "Justice League" film in whatever way possible?

They have the rights to it, they gotta use them somehow

LEGO though, these days, is identified as much with childhood memories of square bricks as much as it is with its massively spanning franchise tie-ins. It's not so much WB as much as a LEGO identity thing and a coincidence

How well director unit has made those things work in the narrative past cheap pop-culture jokes though is remarkable.
It's one of the rare projects I worked on I actually also look forward to seeing in its finished state. Major juggling act.

That looks super awesome, they really got the bricks to look realistic.

You know when we were little, we used to do this "Action Figure Wrestling Federation" thing that had GI JOES, Batman, Robocop and all these other figures...

And it was more about tying them into a wrestling storyline... and sort of goofing up some of their known personalities to make it fun for all us kids playing these characters.

I get the same vibe seeing the trailer to this one.

You are correct in that it's about sort of not using the tie-in for the sake of it, but rather tying it into the "play and make believe" aspect of it to service the main story - which of course panders to the strength of LEGO.

You had that Set?!?!

That is the COOLEST one because you can use the camera with ANY set and basically start making your own LEGO movie with anything in it.

Rrrrr... the possibilities when they made this thing... too bad that with the improvements in camera tech, they never followed it up.

They could do a Michael Bay one now for example...

Are you sure you really want your kids playing with explosive Lego bricks?
