LEGO Easter Eggs

117 posts in this topic

For a fun topic I thought it would be fun to discuss and share of any LEGO Easter Eggs in sets. So do you know of any?

Popsicle in 7879

Classic Space Statue in 5974

I had known a few more but I am still thinking of what they were. :laugh:

There's a sticker in the Indiana Jones set 7261 and it has R2-D2 and C-3P0 on it.

PS.

This is a great idea for a topic :thumbup::wink:

The Space Police sets were riddled with classic space references. I hardly own any, so I can't really say what they are.

And then there's the whole coffee machine running joke. And lately there seems to be a similar trend with random bananas in sets such as 9455.

One of the LEGO City torsos has a Classic Space embelem on it.

4435 (Car and Caravan) has a sticker on the inside referencing 4433 (Dirt Bike Transporter).

A lot of Space sets also feature the LEGO Town/City company, Octan, although that may be a LEGO thing, rather than multiple allusions to the town line.

Names/initials of set designers often appear in sets (in City vehicles for example, the 2 letters in the license plates are often initials of the designer).

An Insectoids reference in 5972 (Also apparently a classic space logo hidden behind the graffiti).

5983 has the logo for a shipping company featuring in City, and the Octan logo appears on a few minifigs

Classic Space statue in 5974.

Previous Space themes also featured numerous references to each other, in the early ones minifigs sometimes appeared in other themes' sets, etc.

I haven't played the most recent additions to the TT LEGO games, but I wonder--is this perhaps a shout-out to them? I seem to recall a lot of banana jokes in LEGO Indiana Jones 2 and LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4, so it's definitely their style...

EDIT: Oh, and let's not forget Doc from Power Miners appearing in the Atlantis theme last year...

It was Brains.

Banana jokes. Hehehe :laugh::blush:

In an Agents set, a Minifig had a torso with Classic Space 'Figs on it.

Also, there is a jacket torso with the Classic Space symbol on it.

That was also in the movie, so I guess it's a super Easter egg.

Not sure if this counts as a LEGO Easter Egg, as it was in the movie. :sceptic:

Beat me to it.

Sorry, I didn't know that was in the movie so I assumed it was an Easter Egg :blush:

Apologies for any inconveniences caused :sweet:

In 7754 (Home One), Ackbar has a coffee cup on his chair.

And in 10200, one of the drivers has an Agents Henchman torso.

Probably a reference to the fact R2-D2 & C-3PO can be seen in Raiders Of The Lost ark on a wall engraving http://urlybits.com article

Probably my most favorite easter egg, in the Portal of Atlantis set, there is a skeleton with an Aqua-Raiders helmet. :laugh:

In fact, that detail in 7621 is taken from actual set details in the Well of Souls in Raiders of the Lost Ark - the heiroglpyhs contain a number of instances of Artoo and Threepio. TLG more or less accurately recreated an Easter egg from the movie (I know others have mentioned it already, but I'm going to go ahead anyway, adding that the droids are actually in glyphs in several different places in the Well of Souls).

Indeed! :thumbup:

Are those really "Easter eggs," though? Humorous touches, certainly, but not that specific sort, I'd think...

Great ones posted everyone, these are my two favorite so far, :laugh:

A very nice Easter egg in a LEGO set, and probably my "favourite" so far, is the stickers in 7066 Earth Defense HQ featuring a viper symbol and "Nnenn". :cry_happy:

I thought of two more both from set 7419

Dragon Fortress Guardian has Batlord Helmet

Jing Lee the Wanderer's torso has a Chinese character that means "The Middle Kingdom" or so

The Guardian having the Bat-Lord helmet is not an EE. It is a reuse of a piece.

This set:

5378-1.jpg

Has a plate with runes on that spell LEGO.

Not only that. The smaller ones on the edges says "Leg Godt" and "Play Well". :wink:

That is my favourite LEGO Easter egg I think. :thumbup:

Another one, in the Alpha Team sets the main villain was a character called Ogel, which is LEGO spelled backwards.

Yeah I noticed that too in a big LEGO book that I have.
