R.O.B. is one of the most well known of the obscure Nintendo characters. This Robotic Operating Buddy originally started out as various pieces of plastic that interfaced with the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). It was a trojan horse, used to get the video game systems onto retailers shelves by marketing the NES as a toy. R.O.B. was quickly abandoned by Nintendo for over a decade. It has found a new home inside the popular video game Smash Bros. UnknownBrick Films created this Lego version of R.O.B. and is quick to point out that it is not their main in Smash. This little guy is made with a whole 16+ pieces. The simple build captures everything you need to know about R.O.B. and is instantly recognizable. Now lets get a whole series of Smash Bros. Lego built!

Pokémon is still going strong today with the recent release of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y on the Nintendo 3DS. Even the original Gameboy games are being sought after and collected today by fans. These original games, titled Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, lead to a television show spinoff. The original animated series made its debut in 1998 with a prime after school timeslot. The show took many liberties compared to the Gameboy games. With a whole cast of reappearing characters that were not present in the original games. The two most memorable are Ash, and his friends Misty and Brock. Two of these have been carefully recreated in Lego by lisqr.
Lego Misty is a great SNOT style figure. With her super orange hair and trademarked blue shorts and yellow tanktop her design is spot on. The anime style hair and eyes are especially good. Lego Ash on the other hand is wearing his (oversized) red and white hat. His design allows him to have more articulation then the Misty figure. I can just imagine him hassling a Lego Pikachu.
To get the best impression of these MOCs make sure to play the Pokémon theme song. “I want to be the very best, Like no one ever was…”

The Lego Movie will be getting its very own video game. TT Games and Lego have announced that The Lego Movie Video Game will be released with the upcoming The Lego Movie, which will be in February 2014. Making its home on pretty much every single platform available. From the new Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U, to with the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, 3DS and Vita. Don’t be too surprised if it also ends up on iOS (which most of the recent games have).
These The Lego Movie Video Game screenshots show off a world that is built out of Lego bricks (instead of the typical TT Game style of rendered backgrounds). The only other concrete detail is that the new game will feature at least 90 playable characters inspired by the film, and 15 levels.
