Upping this thread to post new contents,

In the episode 1.04 of the TV series "Veronica Mars", archive pictures show a kid driving a car in Legoland park:


And in "The Michael J. Fox Show", which already featured Lego previously, the episode 1.20 had even more:


(set 10210)

And at the end of that episode, a whole city:


I guess that either someone really likes Lego in the crew, or that was a product placement...

In "Fresh Off the Boat" season 1 episode 10 (2 weeks ago) there was a couple scenes with LEGO minifigs. The middle son was making a volcano science project and it had the Caesar CMF, a princess figure, and I also saw the Space Miner CMF. They were there to get wiped out by the "lava." This show is supposed to take place in the early 90s so these particular figures were anachronistic.

I happened to watch a episode of "Detective Laura Diamond" by accident. It happened she was stuck at home and had LEGO sets all over the place. Mainly modular buildings and such. One of her colleagues talked about her as "LEGO Laura", which probably implies that LEGO is kind of part of her character due to her kids.

New season of the adult cartoon, China, Il, on [adult swim] (late nite Cartoon Network) had a main character referencing to LEGO in a sarcastic joke about a specific type of girls interacting with a specific type of guys. I'm sure you can figure what it was. I thought it was funny, but probably not for everyone. Still, it was a funny shout out IMO :classic:

A new clip from Ant-Man was recently released where Ant-Man gets sucked into a vacuum cleaner along with a LEGO brick. I have a feeling this won't be the only appearance by LEGO in the movie...

Wait a sec? The woman did unikitties voice? Didnt know that.

Honestly I hated the perfomance so much. The music they used was the horrible sounding robot sounding version of the song and the props looked like they were designed for an elementary school talent show.

And its not like they have to rely on bringing their own stuff Unless the rules changed from the last episode to this one. The lip synchers have full access to props, costumes, and backup singers. I dont know if theres a limit to how many back up singers they can use but i do know with the jf vs dj episode, they used more then i normally see. Average backup number is 4 but DJ had 6 and JF had a stage full for some weird number. They were in clothes that kind of look like some weird church choir thing and if im counting right, theres FORTY on the stage.

I have no idea if it will make it into the final movie or not, but the script that leaked several years ago for Deadpool had Deapool lamenting that he was going to die before finishing his "LEGO Millennium Falcon."

I apologise in advance for digging this up, but I thought this was worthy of adding.

Thunderbirds has been mentioned before here, but what I didn't know till I was reading a recent release, Thunderbirds: The Vault, is that Lego was used to detail control panels in at least one episode of the series, specifically "City of Fire". Below is a photograph I took of the page (third picture in).

I think in Doctor Who closing time, if you look very closely in the scene where he's working in the toy shop, you can see some Lego sets.

Yep, that is the department store known as Howells (David Evans branding) in Cardiff, they filmed in the toy department where I pop by to shop sometimes, the LEGO is always full RRP and tucked away a little, so older sets hang around for a long time. After a year or so, RRP is cheaper than the re-seller prices for the same sets!

Nice! Sadly they don't have one in my area, although Fenwicks does occasionally have some old sets.

On the most recent "Fresh Off the Boat", there was 31025 Mountain Hut sitting on the shelf in the kids room. Problem is...that show is supposed tobe set in '95. I spotted it & did a "wait a minute!", be ause that set is from 2014. Bad continuity ABC!

In the latest episode of Jeopardy, Lego was one of the categories! They even built a Lego version of the set, and filled it with Minifigure versions of the cast and crew.
