In what is becoming a persistent theme on OB1og, Scooby SpeakÂ and The Ed Zone,Â I offer another LEGO astonishment. There’s somethingÂ inherently coolÂ in this mash-upÂ of the innocent LEGO aesthetic withÂ pop-culture antics.Â In past posts, we’ve seen LEGO Doom, LEGO Duck Hunt, LEGO suicides and many others.
Anyway,Â my buddy Joe isn’t much of a gamer, but last year he found a title for his PC that tickled the inner Star Wars geek in him. It was LucasArts’ LEGO Star Wars – which despite the simple title – focused on the latter day prequels. The difference between this game and the myriad of otherÂ Star Wars products that Lucas has shoveled out like so much BanthaÂ poodoo is that by telling the tale through LEGO language, they re-injected the charm Lucas had lost.
Knowing Joe dug that original game, I told him about its recently released sequel – LEGO Star WARS – The Original Trilogy. Of course, Joe knew all about it and is currently immersed in his one game per year annual event.
That discussion led my brain to coax an aged memory of a LEGO oddity I spied in the LEGO store a few years ago. Running on their LEGO TV’s (yes, they appear to be constructed entirely of LEGOs) was a cool little short that depicts the train-top battle between Spiderman and Doc OckÂ from Spiderman 2.
Pointing Joe in the direction of YouTube, he sent me the link within seconds.Â I offer you, LEGO’s take onÂ Spiderman 2.
