Outside of the collectors who never stopped playing with them and finding new ways to create with them, no one could have predicted Lego’s massive rise in popularity over the last decade. Though always prevalent in any home that has or had children in it (and Lego are a big part of most people’s youths), no one knew how strong the Lego brand was until the video games started happening, then the movie, and those two elements changed the way people look at Lego. What was once was just a toy to people is now a world unto itself. A world awash in movies, shows, games, and I could go on and on and still not even touch the surface. Lego have taken over.

I, for one, am not judging the new Ghostbusters on its trailer and will wait to see it, but that Lego set is fantastic all by itself.
Next up, we get some badass new Batman Lego action with a set called “Batman: Rescue from Ra’s Al Ghul” which has so much going on it is hard to look away from:
I should write a little more about each of them but I am about to be too busy ordering them here!.
