LEGO And The Nintendo Switch Go Very Well Together

Nintendo’s Labo system was designed for use with cardboard, but LEGO designer Vimal Patel (like, he actually works at LEGO designing) has other ideas.

Happy 40th Birthday, Lego Minifigure Happy 40th Birthday, Lego Minifigure

Lego’s been making building sets since the 1950s, but it wasn’t until 1978 that the company came up with the perfect plastic people to play in them. The Lego Minifigure was born in 1978 with a handful of designs. Forty years later, there are more than 8,000, most of them hiding in my office drawers.

This Bahamut from Final Fantasy X, built by Marius Herrmann, is an enormous one metre (3.2 feet) wide.

LEGO Voltron is now a thing, going on sale in August for $180. That’s a lotta money, but you’re at least getting 2,321 pieces worth of individual lion mechs that can transform and combine.

Lego DC Super-Villains is yet another Lego game coming this year, slated to release October 16 on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. This time you get to fight alongside the likes of Joker and Reverse Flash as a fellow super villain in the “Justice Syndicate” who you get to custom create.

LEGO's Architecture Series Is Still So Good LEGO's Architecture Series Is Still So Good

I get it, there are lots of adults out there buying lots of LEGO, but for me, the best adult LEGO has always been the company’s fancy architecture series, which now has two very slick new additions.

That Time LEGO Launched An Anime-Inspired Universe That Time LEGO Launched An Anime-Inspired Universe

LEGO has released some unexpected and outlandish themes over the years, and Exo-Force is certainly a standout in both regards.

The Tron: Legacy Lego Ideas Set Looks So Good The Tron: Legacy Lego Ideas Set Looks So Good

2010's Tron: Legacy’s has nothing on the 1982 original in terms of character development and story, but it looked real good. It certainly makes for an attractive new addition to the Lego Ideas line of fan-created sets. You can almost hear the Daft Punk.

Tomb Raider LEGO Has Some Cool Moving Parts

This fan-made Tomb Raider piece is of course not an official LEGO product. There’s a bit too much going on for that.

A LEGO Version Of Star Wars Episode I: Racer

If nobody is going to muster the will/cash for a new video game version of Star Wars’ pod-racing, then we’re going to have to settle for this movable, interactive LEGO take on it instead.

The New Lego Harry Potter Line Starts With Hogwarts' Great Hall The New Lego Harry Potter Line Starts With Hogwarts' Great Hall

Lego returns to JK Rowling’s Wizarding World later this year, with new sets based on the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series. Like the Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall, a $99 set featuring ten minifigures, two buildable creatures and a ridiculous amount of detail.

The New Lego Millennium Falcon Looks So Fine The New Lego Millennium Falcon Looks So Fine

Building A Lego Ship In A Bottle Seems Pretty Easy Building A Lego Ship In A Bottle Seems Pretty Easy

Clever artisans have been building bottled boats since the 1800s, using either long-handled tools or folding mast and sail trickery to create striking works of nautical art. Due out in February, the Lego Ideas version is more of a build-a-bottle-around-a-boat deal. Works for me.

New Downtown Diner Set Brings '50s Flair To Lego Cities New Downtown Diner Set Brings '50s Flair To Lego Cities

The ever-expanding city block that is the Lego Creator Expert line of building sets gets a welcome splash of neon pink and green with the January 1 release of the Downtown Diner. It’s 2,480 plastic pieces that combine to form three floors of 1950s-style entertainment.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2: The Kotaku Review Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2: The Kotaku Review

When we last left Lego Marvel Super Heroes, the Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four had banded together to gather the cosmic doohickeys needed to finish story mode and get to the exciting free-roaming bits. Four years later, the X-Men and Fantastic Four are gone, but everything else is pretty much the same.

LEGO PlayStations Are About As Small As They Can Get LEGO PlayStations Are About As Small As They Can Get

While some LEGO builders like to go big, others like to challenge themselves by building as small as possible. Like SUU2100 has here, with some PlayStation models that would be unrecognisable if they used any less bricks.

The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame: The Kotaku Review The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame: The Kotaku Review

The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame is short and a little rough, but a dynamic new combat system and a couple surprising tweaks to aging mechanics make it one of the most exciting new Lego games in years.
