The LEGO Group at Fan Expo Canada This Weekend

LEGO-Expo-Statues

Fan Expo Canada is happening THIS weekend starting Thursday August 28th through Sunday August 31st at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. NOT this past weekend. Of course, *I* wouldn’t make THAT mistake… mixing up dates like that…. From what I’ve heard/read, it sounds like the San Diego Comic Con of the Great White North so it sounds like a FANTASTICALLY crowded good time!

LEGO sent over a press release detailing their presence at the convention and there are some interesting things to note.

The Rebels Clip That Broke Don

We’ve all had those moments, those defining moments where our open-minded approach to any one thing quickly turns into an opinion and we turn our backs to that thing. In this case, the thing in question is Rebels, and that moment is the clip above. This was the clip that turned Don Solo against the show. I was already trepidatious about the show, but what the clip did for me was cement my hatred for Chopper, and in turn, made me realize just how much this show is going to suck.

And would it kill the sound engineers to generate new sound effects?

I’ll stick to Nick’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles instead. Such a GREAT show, you’re missing out if you haven’t been keeping up.

[SDCC] The Statues of The LEGO Booth

Chopper Statue 1

The LEGO booth is home to a record number of statues this year, totalling five in all. We’ve already posted images of the LEGO Batcycle and a few snaps of the other statues but I thought I’d try taking a few more.

Choppers head actually moves by rotating left and right and features its front wheel which was missing from the previous photos released of the statue. At first I thought its two legs were actually going into the table until I realized that the angle was built that way on purpose.

My favorite one is the of Spider-Man complete with webbed up camera.

[SDCC] MTV Reveals 75084 Wookie Gunship, Rebels’ Chopper Statue

75084_Wookie-Gunship_LSW

MTV is giving us our first look of two new things that will be at LEGO’s booth at the San Diego Comic Con.

First up is a first-look at 75084 Wookie Gunship. I guess Wookies had their butts handed to them during the Clone Wars and decided to do away with wooden-based technology.

Next up is a large-scale sculpture of Chopper from the upcoming Rebels animated series. With all of these sculptures on display at their booth, I’m wondering if there will be any space to even walk around inside. I’m imagining their booth to look a mid-game, human-sized chessboard at this point.
