New LEGO Set: Super Mario 64™ Question Mark Block That Expands!A Super Mario question block on your office desk or in your home will draw attention, but it opens up to surely impress your visitors. When you unfold the finished set, it will display four levels from the game Super Mario 64! Then if you really want to brag, tell them how you assembled it yourself from LEGO's new Super Mario 64™ Question Mark Block build set. That is, if you really did put more than 2000 blocks together to form a hinged display instead of hiring your nephew to assemble it for you. Gizmodo has more:The new 2,064-piece set (nice work on hitting the ‘64' exactly) measures a little over seven inches on each side when fully assembled and closed, but displaying it opened—with the four micro-scale dioramas of Peach’s Castle, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool, Cool Mountain, and Lethal Lava Trouble deployed—will gobble up a little more room on your shelf. In addition to the four recreated levels from Super Mario 64, the Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block set also comes with 10 Lego microfigures including Mario, Yoshi, Princess Peach, a Chain Chomp, Lakitu, King Bob-omb, and several other baddies.​
8 Bit Trip 2 by Rymdreglage: LEGO Stop-Motion Animation Music Video 9 Years in the MakingTwelve years ago, Daniel Larsson and Tomas Redigh (AKA the Swedish musical duo Rymdreglage) released 8-Bit Trip, a legendary LEGO animated music video.Now, after 9 years in the making, the duo released the sequel, 8-Bit Trip 2.Like the first version, Rymdreglage's new music video is a brickfilm, which use LEGO bricks as a primary component. Some brickfilms are relatively simple, like those where bricks are added or moved in each frame of a stop motion animation. Others, like Rymdreglage's creation, include live action humans in the film."It took us (Tomas and Daniel) around three years, it is a pretty complex system where you can draw a path for the camera movement in a 3D modeling software, in this case Blender," said Redigh to Kotaku, "After that the path is decoded into G-code, a language for CNC machines so you can use it to control stepper motors, making the camera ‘float’ around in the room where we were building the Lego characters."Rymdreglage's music video features characters from some of our favorite video game, including the Legend of Zelda, Pac-Man, Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Tetris. See how many you can spot!The still images were taken with a DSLR camera and the filming took some 2,000 hours.All in all, Rymdreglage's 8-Bit Trip 2 took 240 boxes of LEGOs each with 650 mixed pieces or a total of 156,000 bricks.#LEGO #Rymdreglage #brickfilm #stopmotionanimation #8bitvideogame #8bit #musicvideo
