Famicom Selecta mecha
Posting this as a nod to Famicom’s recent 30th anniversary, fun summer film Pacific Rim (notice the two mecha pilots!), and the giant robots in Attack of the Friday Monsters (oh, and hey, it’s Friday).
"The second mecha in the Skyfire Ace line, the Famicom Selecta is a high-mobility frame with an impressive chin-mounted cannon and Thunder Thighs missile launchers. however, due to its size and capabilities, it requires two pilots to properly operate it."
Just going back to Attack of the Friday Monsters, oh my God, this game is so good/charming. Like I mentioned on Twitter last night, there are a dozen things to love about it in just the first five minutes.
Lego Star Fox by Wes Talbott. Great follow-up to his similar Lego treatment for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time a few months back.
Everybody’s jettin’ out of there so fast, no one noticed Slippy Toad behind them, getting blasted. They might find his cap and blocky legs floating with all the other debris later.
LEGO of Zelda: Ocarina of Time by Wes Talbott (click for a larger image). This seems like an impossible dream, but, man, Talbott really captured what a poster for this Nintendo and Lego collaboration would look like.

Lego 3DS by legotown44. If you just want the satisfaction of owning something that looks like a 3DS, without necessarily owning a 3DS — say, if you want people passing on the street to think you have one, but don’t need to interact through StreetPass, you could just build one of these.
And to make it easier, legotown44 posted an Instructables guide!

Lego Entertainment System by Arkov. Adorable!
I usually find stuff like this corny, but something about this particular arrangement of bricks really appealed to me, especially the controller:
And check out the back:
Giant DSi created with 51,324 LEGO pieces.
This commissioned 250+ lb. sculture from Sean Kenney is on display at the Rockefeller Center throughout April. He spent over 200 hours on the project, which you can see condensed and with detail shots in this “making of” video:

So I just came across this story on the lack of a Lego Harry Potter game, and thought, hey, I’ll report on a lack of news, just to be different. Absence of news aside, I found it potentially interesting that Traveller’s Tales was planning on working on more Warner Bros properties, at least until I looked at this list (and this one). On that list of upcoming films, the only viable options I saw for games in the near future shouldn’t be options at all. Lego Watchmen? No. No. Lego Where the Wild Things Are? Hell no.
So, instead, I thought I’d offer Traveller’s Tales the following ideas, for free. I’m feeling generous.
- Lego Speed Racer (in and out of gaming stores as quickly as it was in and out of theaters!)
- Lego Friday the 13th (here’s our chance to play as the villain, killing stupid Lego teenagers!)
- Lego Harold & Kumar (a number of jokes just make themselves here; I’m not wasting effort)
- Lego Sex and the City (those little Lego hook-hands are perfect for gripping tiny plastic sex toys!)
- Lego Ocean’s However Many Dudes We Feel Like Hiring (it’ll be a mainstream darling!)
It’s late, and my humor threshold is low. I make no apologies.
