Like Bowie, Queen, and Iggy Pop before them, Blur are to be LEGOized in Lego Rock Band.
You can see the boys in action hammering along to Song 2 in their blocky forms over on Rolling Stone.
Thanks to RS, we keep shouting WHOO HOO through the house. Nice one.

Warner Bros. has confirmed that LEGO Rock Band will hit the UK on November 27.
Developers by Traveller’s Tales in conjunction with Harmonix, the game has loads of songs in it with the curses removed.
Nice track list there though.
Still, Short & Sweet is a bit innuendo filled, but maybe the kiddies won’t notice.

Queen guitarist Brian May has said that he is pretty much delighted to be a playable character in LEGO Rock Band, calling it “the ultimate accolade, to be portrayed in Lego. My dreams are all fulfilled now.”
Good to know he has outed that bit, especially to the BBC.
While speaking with the news outlet, he also dropped that there was talk “going on behind the scenes” about a dedicated Queen Rock Band title.
“Yes we’re into it, I think it may happen,” he said.
Neato. More through the link.

Former Stooges frontman Iggy Pop is bringing his immaculately waxed chest to Lego Rock Band. Well, we guess he’s bringing the rest of himself as well, but come on, look at that.
Iggy will be shrinking down and rocking out to his own “The Passenger,” along with whatever else you might want to play. If it’s not “The Passenger,” though, he won’t enjoy it.
Jeux Video has a video of the pint-sized plasticine rocker in action. Do you think he looks a bit like Sephiroth, or is it just us?

CVG‘s gotten a quick peek at Lego Rock Band on this Nintendo DS, and apparently, it’s even more family friendly than the main versions of the game.
For one thing, “suggestive lyrics” will be absent from the game. Songs included on the DS’s surprisingly capable cart are Ruby by the Kaiser Chiefs, Monster by The Automatic and Ray Parker Jr’s theme from Ghostbusters.
The game includes an ad hoc multiplayer mode, and its single-player functions similarly to that of Rock Band Unplugged.

Lego Rock Band will let you battle denizens of the deep with the “power of rock,” according to TT Games boss Jonathan Smith. We’re not lying.
“In a Lego world, where anything is possible, all the brilliant things about Rock Band mix with all the brilliant things about Lego,” Smith told VG247.
“The Lego character customiser means that pirates, knights and skeletons can be rock stars too, in amazing new locations. Battle sea-monsters, smash up an entire building, or take a trip into space, all with the power of rock!
“That essential Rock Band gameplay is still there; but now it’s also accessible to a broader audience, with new easy-play options, songs which everyone knows, and lyrics which are appropriate for all ages.”
Don’t worry, though. All that customisation shizzle won’t get in the way if you don’t want it to.
“Customisation is a key concept in all Lego games – but it’s totally up to you how much time you spend on it,” Smith added.
We’re pumped now. Destroying a building with rock power has to be a good thing.
Lego Rock Band releases for Wii, PS3 and 360 later this year.

Lego Rock Band will work with “current” Guitar Hero controllers, Traveller’s Tales boss Jonathan Smith has confirmed.
“We’re certainly compatible with all the forthcoming new Rock Band instruments – and in the future you’ll continue to be able to use any instruments which are Rock Band-compatible, as are the current Guitar
Hero controllers,” the boss told VG247.
The game, which releases for PS3, 360, Wii and DS later this year, ended up being a Rock Band product rather than a Guitar Hero one due to Harmonix’s enthusiasm for Lego, Smith added.
“The team at Harmonix have passion for Lego, and really pushed the idea forward,” he said.
“The core Rock Band idea of ‘building a band’ is perfectly aligned with the values and playfulness of Lego gaming.”

These new tracks are in addition to those confirmed when the game was announced, named:
- Blur: ‘Song 2′
- Carl Douglas: ‘Kung Fu Fighting’
- Europe: ‘The Final Countdown’
- Good Charlotte: ‘Boys and Girls’
- Pink: ‘So What’
The game’s out later this year for 360, PS3, Wii and DS.

Harmonix designer Dan Teasdale’s confirmed on his blog that Lego Rock Band was supposed to be announced at GDC. He’s provided the slides to prove it.
There’s a PDF there of an earlier version of the designer’s GDC session – obviously, it didn’t happen. Looks like Lego Rock Band was planned to be announced prior to this year’s show.
Teasdale’s slides show that the game will hit in 2009.

A “senior source” at Traveller’s Tales has told Eurogamer that there will be no Lego Harry potter in 2009.
Rumours of the title’s existence first appeared at the beginning of December.
VG247 was met with a “no comment” on the subject from Warner.
The firm told Eurogamer’s Johnny Minkley in a radio interview over New Year that, “There will be a Lego game in 2009. And I think it’s okay to say that you’ll be a bit surprised.”
EG is speculating the project is a second Indiana Jones game.
A source told VG247 last week that a Lego Rock Band title is in the works at the developer.
