The LEGO Movie

The LEGO Movie

The LEGO Movie Poster image

The LEGO movie is set for release in early 2014 and oozes awesomeness; Packed full of humour, celebrities and LEGO it’s a recipe for success and is sure to be a hit. The story is based on a case of mistaken identity, with a hapless construction minifigure called Emmet, voiced by Christ Pratt; being mistaken for a LEGO Master Builder that can save the world as they know it!


The film itself has been created using the latest and greatest CGI (Computer generated imagery) wizardry but stays as close to its real life LEGO counter parts, in the way the figures move and 'interact' with the LEGO scenery and characters around them. The same and much loved format seen in the LEGO console games. Combine all of this with an eye wateringly awesome cast, which includes; Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson, amongst many other much loved actors and actresses!

This is one film you won’t want to miss!

CitizenBrick Commando figure

After a whirl wind competition back in May, we’re holding a new one, this time it’s; bigger, better and almost invisible!

We’re giving you the chance to win a premium, custom Pad printed LEGO minifigure from CitizenBrick. The Jungle Commando is one of their latest and greatest minifigures and features full 360 custom printing, making it one of the most detailed minifigures we have. It gets better though, there were only 500 of these figures made, making it more exclusive and rarer than Mr Gold and we’re giving away number 2 of 500!
