Now that the second series ofDisney Collectible Minifiguresare available,LEGO fans are already using them in creative ways.For example,grubaluktook Chip and Dale and turned them into a selfie image on a smartphone.To finish the scene,the builder made adorable versions of Disney's beloved chipmunks.Dale's goofy charm is intact here,complete with his face turned away from the camera with a toothy grin.While the image is not exactly mirrored on the screen,Chip and Dale's expressions certainly are.The overall scene captures the spirit of Disney's little rascals while,at the same time,bringing them into the modern age.
If there's one fandom whose members rival LEGO fans for excitement and in-depth knowledge,it's Disney fans.The monumental rush of pure nostalgia and child-like glee when the two are combined can hardly be overstated.Of course,LEGO has long produced a few sets here and there licensing the core Disney products (as opposed to Disney-owned franchises like Marvel or Star Wars,which rule the LEGO lineup each year).Traditionally,these Disney sets have generally targeted some of the youngest sectors of LEGO's audience.However,in 2016 LEGO produced aspecial wave of the Collectible Minifigures themefocusing on beloved Disney characters.Now three years later,LEGO is returning for another go,with71024 Collectible Minifigures Disney Series 2with a target release date of May 1.As usual,we expect the sets to begin filtering into retail stores a bit early,so start keeping an eye out soon.LEGO hasn't confirmed the price yet,but we expect it will match the $3.99 USD price of the first series.
Like the first wave,Disney Series 2 includes 18 unique minifigures,and as with all Collectible Minifigures (CMFs),they're packaged individually in blind packs.Click to read the full,hands-on review

You could almost say that this is the perfect example of being a Scrooge,well,sort of anyway.In the world of LEGO custom building,there's a term defined as Nice Parts Usage (NPU) where a LEGO element is used in a very different way from its original purpose.Well,if Scrooge McDuck knew this,he'd repurpose every single LEGO brick in his possession to avoid buying new bricks that he doesn't really need in the first place.This build byLogan W.is simply filled with NPUs that shine through,from the Bionicle parts topneumatic hoses,头盔and even a unique-colored piece fromBoba Fett's buildable figurefor Scrooge's beak.

Hot off the heels of theLEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie setannouncement,it might as well be Disney week in all things LEGO.We have your first look at all the new Disney minifigures right here,including close up photos of each character.
LEGO has 亚搏娱乐电子官网revealed21317 Steamboat Willie,the next LEGO Ideas set featuring retro-Mickey and Minnie Mouse minifigures as well as the iconic S.S.Willie steamboat.The boat's steam pipes bounce up and down and the paddle wheels rotate as the set is pushed forward.The set comes with 751 pieces and will be available starting April 1st forUS: $89.99|Canada: 119.99 CAD|UK: £79.99.
The monochromatic set comesonly a month after it was selectedto be one of the next LEGO Ideas products,a shockingly fast turnaround in comparison to previous LEGO Ideas sets.The set is also quite an upgrade from the original submission.Continue reading to see all the official photos,or take a closer look at the insides and build process inour review of 21317 Steamboat Willie.
Only a few weeks since the set was announced in the second round ofLEGO Ideas reviews from 2018,21317 Steamboat Williewill be available to buy from April 1st.The final set design is very different from the Ideas project which inspired it,and,with all respect to the original model,the improvements are significant.Mickey's paddle steamer is much larger and more detailed than the original microscale design.
Fresh from the Disney town of Duckburg,here's Little Helper,built from bricks byOliver Becker.Eccentric inventor Gyro Gearloose's automaton assistant makes for a delightful LEGO character — using ribbed metallic hoses for limbs is a perfect choice,and cockpit parts for the robot's lightbulb head are simple yet effective.I find it wonderful how such a model,put together from relatively few pieces,can embody so much character.It's down,in no small part,to the care taken in posing the model for photography,getting the curves of the back and limbs just right.The dangling feet are spot-on,as is the thoughtful angle of that transparent cranium.Lovely.
Twas theNightmare Before Christmas,when all through the house not a creature was stirring…except forSpaceBrick.SpaceBrick's latest LEGO model presents a unique twist on the classic Tim Burton film by taking a scene and contextualizing it as a painting.His brick-built illustration is even mounted on an easel!The builder did a great job of crafting the moonlit cliff with a curl,and the surrounding scenery is to die for.对哈利波特wand on sprueelements were used to create tombstones,which look Burtonesque in their own right.Look carefully,and you might also catch a glimpse of a tiny Jack Skellington.
The level of detail in this LEGO model is frighteningly high,right down to the tools of the trade scattered below the easel.There are half-filled tubes of paint,a paint spill,and wood shavings alongside the pencil sharpener.It all helps one feel the artist's sense of accomplishment they must have experienced upon finishing their masterpiece.
One of the most incredible things about LEGO is that you can truly build anything you set your mind to.A good builder can take a pile of squared-off pieces and create something that looks organic.Sometimes a LEGO artist (because that's what they really are) has that extra stroke of genius that takes a build to the next level and gives it life.If you don't know aboutAlex de Jong,you should,because he's proven this point with his stunning tribute to Disney's Tinker Bell.We were fortunate to communicate with Alex throughout the build process,and he has been kind enough to share with us exclusive details about the project.
Hot on the heels ofLEGO versions of the cartoon cast of Futurama,Palixa and the Bricksnow takes on another band of animated characters: Mike,Sully,and Boo from Disney'sMonsters Inc.The studs-out construction style is perfect for the two monsters,somehow managing to effectively evoke both Sully's fur,and Mike's leathery hide.I think the modelling of Sully's face is spot-on,and I particularly like the Tauntaun horns gracing his head.Little Boo is just perfect peeking out from beneath her hard hat — a nice companion to the larger pair,and perfectly scaled for the teddy bear clutched in Sully's paw.All we need now is Roz:"Watching.Always watching."
We recently coveredMike Nieves‘ excellentBellefromBeauty and the Beast,but of course,she needs an antagonist.Now Mike is back to bring us everyone's favorite Disney chump,Gaston.With ludicrously bulging muscles and a smarmy grin,this LEGO sculpt captures the essence of Gaston perfectly as he shows off for a disinterested Belle.The little bit of scenery ties it all together,with an excellent stump that even includes tree rings.
