Between its new animated feature, launching The Simpsons sets and about a dozen other things, LEGO's got a lot going on this year. That's why it's a bit surprising to know that there won't just be one line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles LEGO sets this year, but two. Sets based on the upcoming live action/CGI hybrid TMNT film are in the works, of course, but are still largely shrouded in mystery. Box art for more sets based on Nickelodeon's CG animated series have surfaced, though, and... well, those are probably the ones most fans are going to be the most excited about.
TV: The Huntress is set to return to Arrow in the upcoming "Birds of Prey" episode on March 26.
Video: Man At Arms turns to Fullmetal Alchemist for his latest creation, Edward Elric's spear.
Statues: Iron Studios' upcoming diorama recreates the battle for New York Cit
We've put a lot of fan-made LEGO creations into the spotlight over the past few years, and usually, they represent the hard work of dedicated fans, using pieces pulled from dozens -- sometimes hundreds -- of sets. As cool as it is to see a towering Arkham Asylum or a motorized Joker's Funhouse, it's always a little bit disappointing that you can't run out to the store and buy one of your own, even if it does reduce the chances of stepping on a LEGO brick in the middle of the night. Now, though, we finally have a chance of gtting one of the coolest LEGO sets I've seen.
It's called "Assault On Wayne Manor," a three-level representation of Batman's ancestral home, complete with his anti-crime basement, full of secret passages, equipment and trophies, and it's up for voting right now on LEGO's Cuusoo project!

A year or two ago, LEGO's DC Superheroes line released a set called "Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape." At the time, I thought it was pretty awesome -- It had minifigs for Batman, Robin, the Joker and Harley Quinn, an appropriately creepy setup for a villainous hideout, and even a little roller coaster car that traveled through it on tracks. It was neat. And then Brickbaron came along and basically made it look like baby school with his version of the Joker's funhouse, complete with carnival rides, deathtraps and puzzles, all of which are motorized to put the whole thing in motion.
It's quite possibly the coolest LEGO build I've ever seen. Check it out in full video, complete with sound effects for Batman's eternal spin-kick, below!

Thanks to Wal-Mart Canada, fans can finally scope out next year's Marvel Super Heroes sets from LEGO. In the mix are sets that seem to sit nicely with the upcoming Marvel multimedia slate, including three Ultimate Spider-Man sets, and two Avengers Assemble sets. Sure, they're technically based on Disney XD's current two Marvel cartoons, but there's a prominent Electro minifigure ripe for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie release this summer. Perhaps best of all, though, is the reveal of LEGO MODOK.
