There’s a lot to love about this new, full-length Lego Indiana Jones trailer, even if you’re not as fascinated with Indy’s ability to beat other Lego humans limb-from-limb as I am. Even if you prefer Star Wars to Indy (like all good folk), if you enjoyed the Lego Star Wars games, I think you’ll have a hard time resisting this. There’s a Lego monkey, for god’s sake! In fact, I’m willing to bet the game will be significantly better than the Crystal Skull. Any takes?
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
