Weekend discussion thread: LEGO movies

Alert reader Timmy writes:

i know we did this before (but would be fun to revisit)
Each year i go to a local Lego Convention. this year, someone had the The Satellite of Love made out of Lego (with the inside done too). with that in mind, what would be a fun MST3K movie done in Lego. i was thinking The Sword and the Dragon and one of the Sandy Frank Japanese TV shows did. what is your idea for a set.

He also provides a few pictures of the Lego SOL that inspired him…

Have at it!

And keep those WDT ideas coming!

    The Screaming Skull might work. A big Lego house, almost completely empty, a gardening shed filled with little Lego pots, lots of baskets and skulls for the five mini-figs to tote everywhere. Wait, does Lego make peacock figures? Maybe they could create some just for this special set, and include a Lego coffin with every purchase, too.

    Well since movies like Mac & Me, Starcrash, Hobgoblins, Yongary, and especially Atlantic Rim are cheap knock-offs, they’d have to be done with the LEGO knock-off Mega Bloks.

    Lego set pieces would actually be a step up for that movie. Plus, the plastic grins on Scalli and Joe would work well when you need to duplicate reaction shots for the various matches.

    Fire Maidens. Since Legos sit around and do nothing, the Fire Maidens Lego set would be an accurate depiction of the movie.

    LEGO My Eggo!

    I envision a display of thousands of waffles made of LEGOs to commemorate the time Joel went waffle wacky. Don’t forget the LEGO butter and the LEGO syrup.

    Manos: though you’d have to put Torgo’s little legs in the oven and then mold them to get the right look; and wouldn’t the fight among all the wives be interesting!
    The Brain That Wouldn’t Die: Jan’s little Lego head scowling in a little Lego pan would be worth it just by itself; it would be real easy to rip the lab assistant’s arm off, too; and who doesn’t want to hear Lego voices saying “Help, I’m in another dimension”?

    while we’re on the subject of movies where nothing happens, how about The Starfighter? LEGO jets that have to constantly refuel while the LEGO congressman keeps making harassing LEGO calls to to LEGO Bob Dornan

    or LEGO Ring of Terror where LEGO Puma scares LEGO Moffat to death after enjoying the dissection of LEGO Jon Doe
    also LEGO Tiny and LEGO Ragdoll who dive into a LEGO wheelbarrow of LEGO hotdogs at the LEGO Frat Initiation Ceremony

    would it be more cost effective to use a bunch of ‘Cooties’ games if you wanted to do ‘Phase 4?’
    of course, building Mamie Van Doran may be a little tough on the psyche if you were doing ‘Girl’s Town’ or ‘Untamed Yout.’

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who heard, “Lego my Eggo” in those old adds. A Lego version of the toy set that was featured in the host segment of one of the Gamera movies might be cool, if a nightmare to assemble:

    “Torso not included.
    Some parts may not exist.
    Existential void where prohibited.”

    Lego Sidehackers. But you only get to play with the sidekick bikes for five minutes, then they’re taken away and replaced with the J.C. vs Rommel Pointless Rivalry set.

    There was a Rita’s Death Scene set but it was recalled by the manufacturer.

    Most have been mentioned, but I really think the movies that tried to be deeply serious dramas would be enjoyably bonkers. The more deeply tragic the better. It would be so pointlessly weird they’d be these ironic pieces of art. Especially with the riffs coursing through our heads. And personally, I would love to see Violent Years.

    A LEGO “I Accuse My Parents” set would be…interesting. On the box it would show Jimmy with his happy family, an important job, and having grand adventures. But when you open the box it would only contain an empty house littered with half-empty bottles of booze, a passed out mom, a dad going out with a floozy, and a dead-end job.

    The Space Mutiny Lego kit would be enormous: think how many Legos you’d need to build that vast boiler room! Lego makes great railings, too: there’d be a lot of them, and some of the figures would have grooves on the top of their feet so you could attach them to the railings as if they were sailing over. And think of all the auxiliary kits: the murky rave club, the bridge where everyone just stands around, the room where the frozen bodies are hanging, the Bolarian room with lots of clear plastic balls and a ferret cage! You could build all of them, and then use all your regular Legos to somehow connect these spaces better than they were connected in the movie. Dave Ryder would have to be purchased separately, with a different head for all the different nicknames. The Lt. Lamont figure would be made of titanium and completely indestructible.

    Best part: someone has already done a Lego version of the Southern Sun at the same LEGO show with the SOL.

    As for other set ideas:
    -Megaweapon from Warrior of the Lost World.
    -A Santa Claus set based on his main room in the film (complete with figures of Santa, Merlin, the laughing reindeer, and the Spanish boy assistant).
    -The Hitler Building.

    someone had the German Reichstag building from the Battle of Berlin so that might be the closest to the Hitler Building.

    “I saw the little LEGO!”
