LEGO Ideas Approves Big Bang Theory and Birds Sets

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 9, 2014 in Hobbies and Collections


Yes, the user-submitted LEGO project has gotten itself another license approved. Several ideas jumped the 10,000 supporter hurdle, but only two made it through: the Big Bang Theory, and birds. No, not the Hitchcock film. Just regular birds. And they’re adorable! I honestly couldn’t care less about the Big Bang Theory set, but these birds are wonderfully made, and I can’t wait to see LEGO’s final version of them (all the sets essentially have to be “redone” by LEGO and approved for mass-production. They don’t use the sets submitted as-is). Check out some more images below along with the announcement video, then read the official blog post with more details here! Read more…

Whose theory sounds the best? Read more…

Spiner and Wheaton on Big Bang Theory

Back in June, Brent Spiner took part in a webcast where he discussed his recent webseries Fresh Hell. During the course of the interview, he mentioned that he’d love to join his former Star Trek: The Next Generation cast mate Wil Wheaton, and guest star on The Big Bang Theory. Well, it looks like he got his wish; both Brent and Wil will be appearing in an upcoming episode of the CBS comedy. Not many details have been revealed about the spot, other than he’ll be playing the role of himself while attending a party being thrown by Sheldon’s arch-nemesis, Wheaton. An image from the episode has been released, depicting Sheldon, Leonard, Brent and Wil in the same shot, but as to how Sheldon or Leonard scored an invite will remain a mystery until the episode airs on October 13th.
