Salutations, Evil Geek Nation! Don’t adjust your browser settings, this week’s Horror of Horrors is now featuring 100% more C-Mart due to the fact that Arthur Harkness has the week off. I’m not really sure why he had to take off in such a hurry, but like three of his ceremonial daggers are missing from their display case and the barn in the Evil Lair is suspiciously low on sacrificial animals. I suspect I this all may have something to do with the flyer I found stabbed into the wall of the lounge announcing the “Say You, Seance: All You Can Conjure Occult Jam” being held right now at the Holiday Inn just adjacent to the Hellmouth in Cleveland. I definitely enjoy a good dose of horror and my all time favorite horror films of all time are George Romero’s classics The Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. The zombie genre has exploded in recent years and quite frankly is getting a bit overdone, but I will always come back to these movies because they still stand as two of the most frightening things I’ve ever seen!
Lego sets are in no short supply in the confines of the Evil Geeks Lair. After we learned about the upcoming Back To The Future Lego sets it made us think about some of the other franchises we would like to see made into Legos. A lot have already been done like Indiana Jones, Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter, both DC and Marvel characters etc. But there’s a few the Evil Geeks are still waiting on…

The hypothetical LEGO set nearest my heart would have to be Die Hard. I’ve always wanted to see a decent-sized Lego skyscraper anyway, and a miniature Hans Gruber in the boardroom would only make it that much more appealing. Imagine having a miniature John McClane jumping off that tiny roof with fire hose piece clipped between his torso and leg pieces, contacting a little trick window that gives way a few stories down… I’m imagining it so hard that I need to change the subject.
However, as far as tie-ins with more mainstream appeal, a dream combination (although staggeringly unlikely) would be a G.I. Joe Lego line. It would be so much fun to see all of the vehicles translated to brick form and with the preexisting models to work with, they’d have years worth of unique sets to release. Plus, a Lego GI Joe video game would be a blast and we might finally get another chance to play with the U.S.S. Flagg aircraft carrier base!
