Just in case you weren't satisfied with a look at 60% of a LEGO box a shutterbug snapped at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair last week, the toymaker has officially unveiled new images of one of its Guardians of the Galaxy sets in advance of a full preview starting this Sunday at Toy Fair 2014 (which we will be at in full force).

DC's heroes -- particularly Batman -- were the ones that got the big-screen treatment in this weekend's box office winner, The LEGO Movie, but that isn't stopping fans from bringing a few Marvel movie characters to life, too.
The team of Antonio and Andrea Toscano have lovingly recreated the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier completely in LEGO bricks and minifigures, and it's pretty doggone fantastic. Check out the video (and the original trailer for comparison) after the jump.
There is a new Batman movie coming out in theaters this weekend, and it's easily the best Batman movie yet. It's also a great sci-fi movie, and a great Western, and a great Matrix remake, and it's especially a great comedy.
But first and foremost, it's a Lego movie. And it's the Lego movie. It does everything you want a Lego movie to do. And that's awesome.
A couple weeks ago, we took a look at DarthKy's proposed LEGO Cuusoo Assault On Wayne Manor set, a massive, three-level build that included Batman's ancestral home and the anti-crime basement beneath. Now, the same team is back with their newest proposed project: a massive LEGO recreation of the X-Mansion, including an underground Danger Room.
This thing is basically amazing, full of deceptively complicated pieces and fantastic nods to the history of everyone's favorite mutants. Check out more info and images below!

It was only a couple of days ago that we mentioned the campaign to get a full Wayne Manor/Batcave set produced by LEGO's Cuusoo program, and today, everyone's favorite building block manufacturers have announced what they're actually going to be putting into production. Following up on their Back to the Future DeLorean, we're going to be seeing a 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters set, complete with the Firehouse, ECTO-1 and the four Ghostbusters themselves!

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!
