Minifigure masterpieces: 10 of the best lego movies

When you breathe life into Lego, something magical happens...
Best Lego Movies

The Lego movie is upon us and we can't wait to settle in and watch our colourful blocky dreams come to life on the glorious silver screen.

To celebrate, we've trawled through the interwebs looking for some of the best stop motion Lego movies to treat ourselves to, so sit back and feast your eyes on these delightful mini-masterpieces:

Felix Baumgartner's Lego space jump

Felix Baumgartner is the crazy Austrian fellow who dived back down to Earth from 24 miles above its surface, and this brave little Lego pilot manages to achieve the same feat. Almost.

We tried to calculate the equivalent height/distance ratio to account for the much smaller size of the Lego daredevil, but then our brains started to hurt. Either way, it's high enough for a minifigure and the courageous fellow was rightfully rewarded with lots of little celebration beers after his successful landing.

Spider-Man: The Peril of Doc Ock HQ

The special effects and soundtrack in this Spidey-themed entry are nothing short of mind blowing. From web swinging to fast paced combat, it has everything you could ever want. from a stop motion Lego production.

Bricks of War

Explosions, bullets, guns and chainsaws (which are attached to previously mentioned guns). It can only mean Gears of War, and it's adorably gruesome in Lego form.

Creator Kooberz even manages to pull off the game's third-person camera angle and aiming animations smoothly. An action-packed masterpiece.

Lego Arcade

"These were once games, my child". 

"But why are the graphics so bad granddad"? 

"They're made out of Lego you see. But the games themselves weren't much clearer in real life. We didn't have any of the HD 4k speculus rift nonsense you have now".

"Not HD? Well that sucks. I'm going back to play Call of Killing: 2 K1ller 4u".

Little Timmy picks up his controller, faces the TV, and slits the throat of a mutant alien while gleefully insulting its mother. A single tear gently crawls down granddad's face.

"Your loss, my child. Your loss...."

Eddie Izzard- Death Star Canteen

We're not sure what possessed YouTube user Thorn2200 to upload this Lego rendition of Eddie Izzard's Death Star canteen routine, but we're sure glad they did it. Adding plenty of comedic weight to an already funny piece, we'll never quite look at tray without smirking again.
