With so much time indoors, my kids have been pretty good about keeping themselves busy. To be honest, I do worry about so much screen time. So, we recently took a break from the screens to build a LEGO Fortnite Medkit Bandage Box!
I feel like the only two words I hear out of my kids’ mouths, sometimes are “LEGO” and “Fortnite”. I was surprised to find out something about LEGO Fortnite, recently.
With Christmas just around the corner, I have been scouring the internet to find the perfect gifts for my kids. My older daughter asked for LOL Surprise Dolls, while her brother wanted a new ride-on toy car, like his cousin’s!
Finding the perfect gifts for preschoolers was the hardest of all! I’m fairly certain that my two youngest will each be getting their own LeapFrog LeapStart 3D, and then share a library of books.
I was so incredibly shocked, as I searched the internet for LEGO Fortnite products to hide under the tree.
It turns out, there are no real LEGO Fortnite sets! Not yet, anyway. Apparently, the best holiday gifts for LEGO builders aren’t even real!
LEGO Fortnite Fakes
Recently, a bunch of viral images appeared of the Fortnite Hollowhead LEGO set. It turns out, that set is completely fake, and terribly made. These bootlegs are not made by LEGO, and have the crummy workmanship to show it.
LEGO Stop Motion Videos or BrickFilms
A popular trend, lately, has been to use stop motion to make LEGO videos! These are popular on YouTube and often referred to as BrickFilms.
Some of these videos are so popular that they have become whole series, on their own! The LEGO Battle Royale is a famous example of these types of videos! It is a Brickfilm from The Action Bricks called Clash Royale and has over 12 million views!
It’s easy enough to do that lots of kids have gotten in on the fun and made their own videos! Here is a brief explanation of how to make LEGO Stop Motion movies!
How to Build LEGO Fortnite
Incredibly popular among the community is turning regular LEGOs into Fortnite LEGOs! This has been done with everything from the mini-figs to the sets, themselves!
The creativity that goes into making LEGO Fortnite Characters is so unreal!
Check out this video, by Pumpkin Brix where he makes some of the most popular characters!
Over on BrothersBrick, they found a tutorial for how to make a Battle Bus out of LEGOs!
It took SacredBricks quite some time to make their Fortilla Battle Arena, from regular LEGOs. But, this totally seems like something my kids would love to build, together!
I even found a video that uses over a thousand pieces to build Anarchy At The Agency!
Famous locations from in the game, like Tilted Towers, are popular to recreate with LEGOs!
So much creativity goes into making these custom sets. It is so cool how Fortnite has inspired a whole community of creators. Check out this dream LEGO set, by MiniBrick Productions.
I really hope to see some real LEGO Fortnite products, soon! I know my kids will want to be first in line to add it to their collection. They were begging for the Baby Yoda LEGO Set from day 1!
