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!

The Metroid Prime Trilogy is back with a fully digital re-release for the Wii U. The Trilogy is one of the most prized Wii video games, and now the awesome story can be experienced by everyone. The Flickr user, Jared If only I remembered, created this Lego Metroid Prime Samus Aran Minifigure as a teaser for their upcoming Brickworld Chicago 2015 display. It is worth noting that a few of the details are still being worked out. Samus will feature a black T-bar in the final build. Her power armor is looking great. Check out the space helmets used for shoulder pads, and the little Metroid on the side.

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.

If you happen to be one of the lucky few people out there to own a WiiU, Lego City: Undercover is considered one of the best games available. It has been 8 years since TT Games first released Lego Star Wars and many people think that the formula is wearing thin. The co-op action-adventure game does many things right, but the same complaints (wonky camera, bad AI, etc.) have haunted the series for years. And, although these complaints are valid, overall the Lego series of video games are some of the most charming available.
TT Games and TT Fusion surprised many people by creating an open world action-adventure game. Lego City: Undercover is a breath of fresh air. It has successfully merged the gameplay of more adult titles such as Grand Theft Auto into a more friendly package. It is also rare to see a Lego game not based on a licensed property, and this may be the first video game to do one of the core Lego themes justice. Lego City has never been this interesting before.
