This year's Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) featured its first-ever Lego booth, which invited visitors to come together to build a 3m by 3m mosaic wall depicting a portrait of fictional boy wizard Harry Potter.
The well-known screenwriter talks about his directorial debut, the struggle of making an indie movie and the status of his LEGO movie 'The Billion Brick Race'.

One triumph of The Lego Batman Movie is its ability to simultaneously satirize and celebrate the legacy of the Dark Knight, a rich history spanning eight decades of comic books, TV shows, and, especially, films. From Will Arnett’s Christian Bale-inspired gravelly growl to callbacks to the 1940s serial, The Lego Batman Movie is overstuffed with cinematic references and inside jokes. The pilot immediately calls out the Joker, pointing out how his previous big-screen endeavors were thwarted by the Caped Crusaders, alluding to both 2008’s The Dark Knight and 1989’s Batman.

Today is officially Rogue Friday, the launch day for this year’s wave of new ‘Star Wars’ toys, and a bunch of new ‘Rogue One’ products have officially gone on sale for the first time. Image credits: LEGO
Rogue One is still 80 days away, but by the end of the week you’ll be able to play way through the newest Star Wars adventure — this Friday is when licensees can officially start selling their latest merchandise, including loads of new toys. To hype their wares, toy makers teamed with Lucasfilm and a group of superfans to create Go Rogue, a series of stop-motion YouTube videos loosely retelling the Rogue One plot (spoiler-free!) with the latest action figures, vehicles, and playsets.
E.T. is a classic movie… and classically disastrous video game. Now, the little alien is back as a character in Lego Dimensions.
The last time we talked Lego and Rogue One was at San Diego Comic-Con, when we unveiled the life-sized Death Trooper made of the tiny plastic bricks. While you can’t buy that awesome dude in a store, come Sept. 30, there will be several Lego sets available based on the upcoming Star Wars story for your amusement. Yahoo Movies has a look at Lego’s full Rogue One line, which features five different vehicles with minifigures (including a couple characters we know very little about), along with a trio of larger-scale buildable action figures of what are shaping up to be the film’s most marketed characters.

Now, a version of that story plays out in Lego form as a new downloadable expansion pack for the Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game. To complete the level, called “The Phantom Limb,” players must navigate the droids past the deadly fauna of Taul and contact the Resistance before the whole party is wiped out.
While Star Wars doesn’t have the same outsized presence at Comic-Con as The Force Awakens provided last year — Lucasfilm just held its own Star Wars Celebration Europe convention last week to hype the studio’s upcoming slate — there’s one booth on the floor here in San Diego that is embracing Rogue One in a big way. On Wednesday evening, Lego will unveil a life-size Death Trooper, one of the Imperial’s nasty black-armored squad featured in the new standalone film, and Yahoo Movies has your exclusive sneak peek. This trooper was created with 27,202 bricks (several thousand more than either the neighboring Captain America or Wonder Woman statues).
The toy brick slingers have assembled an expansive and adorable cast of favorite cinematic characters, many of whom have never been Lego-fied before — E.T., Tom Cruise, and the Goonies, for starters — to join the existing crew of 'Lego Dimensions.'
