May 22. It must be my lucky day. Not only did Lucas release Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith on May 22, 2005 (in all seriousness, one of the best days of my life!), but now, I hear they plan on releasing Indiana Jones 4: Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on May 22, 2008! Even more, Gizmodo broke the news yesterday with official high resolution shots, prices and descriptions of the four new LEGO diorama sets based on Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, also launching in May. Pretty RAD.

Family Fun Night Activity

Have you ever felt compelled to share the fun fact on the bottom of the Snapple bottle cap, or tried to figure out the answer to the question on your popsicle stick before it melted away? Now you and your kids can test each other on your LEGO knowledge. In honor of the 50th birthday of the LEGO brick, Monday, bloggers all over the internet posted fun LEGO facts to their sites.

Jot down of some of the fun facts Gizmodo posted and you’re on your way to an exciting Family Trivia Night:

- 40 billion LEGO bricks stacked on top of one another would connect the earth with the moon.
- The LEGO bricks sold in one year would circle the world five times.
- There are more than 915 million combinations possible for six 2x4 LEGO bricks.
- LEGO bricks are available in 53 different colors.
