'Lego Rock Band': no Paul or Ringo, but Iggy pops in
by Gary Eng Walk
Categories: Music, Tech, Videogames
The Beatles: Rock Band has been getting all the buzz this week, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about all the other music games out there, particularly with news like this: Legendary punk rocker Iggy Pop is going to play a prominent role in Lego Rock Band. LRB plays like the other Rock Band games, except that it replaces the cascading notes with Lego blocks, and adds Lego-centric challenges such as toppling over towers of blocks with well-strummed guitar riffs. Iggy will instruct you in LRB’s in-game tutorial and will be a playable (and, true to his image, shirtless) character in the game.
While Iggy is certainly one of the stranger choices to endorse a game aimed at young pretend-rockers — really, how many kids actually know who Iggy Pop is? — his inclusion is consistent with the wry quirkiness that’s become the trademark of other Lego videogames like Lego Star Wars and Lego Batman. It’s almost a sure-thing that Lego Rock Band will be the third-best-selling music game this holiday season after Beatles: Rock Band and Guitar Hero 5.
What do you think PopWatchers? Do any of these games make you want to dust off the plastic guitar or are you getting tired of all of the encore performances?

THIS is what he was talking about in that Spin Magazine article of the inside of his Miami Clubhouse. The part where he said he was excited to be a Lego. Mystery solved.

I'm not a gamer either but a boxed figure like this? WOULD. The hair and the painted on six pack torso is spot on. I'd display it with my Barbies. queen

If that wasn't so hilarious I would acuse him of selling-out but I'm actually crying with laughter. The man has no shame. Genius.
