Studios is a theme that was introduced in 2000 and discontinued by the end of 2002 or in early 2003. Sets of the theme mainly focused on the making of stop-motion movies and the steps and practices thereof. The theme featured several licensed subthemes, including Jurassic Park III and the last of which was the original Spider-Man movie series in 2002.
Characteristics And Popularity
The appeal of Studios is that the stop-motion animation camera, included with the set 1349 LEGO Studios Steven Spielberg MovieMaker Set, allows users to create real stop-motion movies with LEGO Bricks. In response, many websites that are dedicated to creating such movies, which are now known as "Brickfilms", have been created.
The director Minifigure featured in most of the sets is a caricature of Steven Spielberg, who attached his name to the aforementioned MovieMaker set. Unusually, he was included in the Lego Studios Spider-Man Action Studio set, but the movies were directed by Sam Raimi.
Adventurers characters Johnny Thunder and Pippin Reed appear as Actors in three sets, based on the adventurer's theme from 2001-2004. Namely 1355 Temple of Gloom, 1370 Raptor Rumble Studio, and 1354 Dino Head Attack.
