Type “Lego movie trailer” into YouTube and you’ll be presented with an avalanche of teasers for The Lego Movie, as well as individual scenes, foreign language versions and special publicity promos. What you won’t get – surprisingly enough – is a Lego recreation of The Lego Movie trailer, something reserved for the most-loved and most-watched regular teasers thataren’t already made out of bricks. Here are just twelve of our favourites, with particular attention going to community stalwartsAntonio Toscano and Brotherhood Workshop.

1. The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug

Best bits: There’s so much great detail, it’s almost impossible to pick. The butterflies, the barrels, the splash of the water, the bricky intertitles, and a little wyrm called Smaug.

2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Best bits: Cap’s shield in bricks, the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy-referencing 42s in bricks and imagining what Steve Rogers’ barbershop quartet would look like in bricks.

3. Iron Man 3

Best bits: The size of the ruby Pepper Potts is given, and the thought that somewhere out there is a Lego version of Trevor Slattery.

4. Guardians Of The Galaxy

Best bits: The haircut on Glenn Close’s beautiful plastic head, as well as that Lego cassette player you definitely, definitely want.

5. The Wolverine

Best bits: That GARGANTUAN cigar, the bottle and chair slicing in twain and the delightful R2-D2.

6. Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Best bits: It has to be the Hulkbuster suit and the broken shield, right?

7. Man Of Steel

Best bits: The fisherman! Or Amy Adams’ brick smirk! Or the clever work getting the cape to flap!

8. The Dark Night

Best bits: Batman looking menacing staring out over Gotham from the top of what looks like a ladder, and hell, we’ll give the hospital explosion a top – that must have taken ages.

9. Shaun of The Dead

Best bits: Just how old-school that car is. That, and the skeleton zombies.

10. Jurassic World

Best bits: Not the raptors, not the poor shark, but… Captain Sparrow visiting the park. Even pirates need holidays.

11. The Maze Runner

Best bits: Gollum! Has to be Gollum.

12. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

Best bits: As with the original teaser, when the Millennium Falcon swoops up and down and around, the TIE fighters shoot, and, and, and… why isn’t it December yet?
