The Late Movies: The Wonderful World of Lego

Mark Arminio

Ah, the wonderful world of Lego. There's something nostalgic and captivating about their simplicity, something that reminds us of a simpler time, of exploring creativity, of building whatever our imaginations could conceive. Tonight for the Late Movies, we have a few clips from Legoland that have taken that childhood delight and transformed it into some amazing creations using Lego.

Leading off tonight, here is a working remote control manual transmission.

Not to be outdone, this is a functioning V8 engine using nothing by Lego Technic.

Star Wars and Lego have teamed up to produce a crazy amount of crossover, from video games to specialized Lego Star Wars sets. Here is a clip explaining the original Star Wars trilogy in Lego.

This video went viral back in 2008. It featured a giant Lego ball rolling down the streets of San Francisco, then smashing into a car.

Of course, the MythBusters debunked that video a year later. They then immediately blew something up because it had been 20 minutes.

Here is Weird Al's "White & Nerdy" video reshot using only Lego.

And finally tonight, we have the Queen epic "Bohemian Rhapsody" recreated using your favorite plastic pieces. Enjoy!
