What’s hot

  • For the first time in our studio history we are permanently installing a piece of incredible fan art in our lobby, forever. This amazing LEGO craftsmanship from @steponabrick is among the highest quality caliber of fan creations we’ve ever seen. Thank you so much Marius Herrmann for visiting our studio all the way from Germany to bring the incredible magic of your work to us. We can’t stop staring, it’s gorgeous.

  • We've partnered with Gaming Heads to create these Kratos and Atreus Exclusive Mini Figures. The two-pack includes a 3.5-inch-tall Kratos figure and a 2.75-inch-tall Atreus figure -- perfectly sized to display virtually anywhere. With Kratos holding his Leviathan Axe and Atreus with his Talon Bow at the ready, these figures are surprisingly detailed. They've also made an exclusive Bronze version that looks straight out of Tyr's temple.
