1st (possibly only) logo(1997-)
Nicknames: "Falling Lego Bricks", "The Lego Logo", "Brick Rain"
Logo: On a black or white background, many red, white, black, and yellow Lego bricks fall to the ground and group together. They eventually form the Lego logo. The block details fade away, forming the Lego logo (the one you see on the company's toys).
- The prototype variant of this logo had the 1973 version of the Lego logo. This can be seen on Lego Island.
- On Lego Media games, when the logo is complete, it moves to the top left corner, and Media (in white) with a yellow M shaped brick below it, zooms in. Later games had a faster (and more realistic looking) zoom-in. The copyright details fade in below (and occasionally appears bylineless).
- On Lego Software games, when the Lego logo is complete, it moves to the left, and SOFT WARE (in pale blue, stacked on top of each other) runs into the Lego logo, and wobbles for a bit. Then a scanner-like line goes through SOFT WARE, and then a minifigure head appears through the O, and blinks. Like the Lego Media variant, the copyright details fade in below (and occasionally appears bylineless).
FX/SFX: The Lego bricks falling and the fading in to the proper logo, in decent CGI.
Music/Sounds: Synthesized twinkling throughout, a few whooshes, and a deep bass note. The software variant has a cartoonish wobble sound when SOFT WARE bumps into the Lego logo, a futuristic scanner sound when the line comes through, and a twinkle when the minifigure head blinks.The media variant has an explosion sound when the M brick appears.
Availability: Common; seen on the Bionicle direct-to-video films, and also on some Lego-based video games. The Lego Media variant can be seen on Lego Creator: Knights Kingdom and Lego Racers, and the Lego Software variant can be seen on Lego Racers 2.
Scare Factor: None to low; the synth theme might scare some, but this is a cool logo, and Lego fans might like it. Low for the Lego Media variant; the "thud" could get to some people and low for the Lego Software variant; the sudden appearance of SOFT WARE and the scanner could catch some off-guard.
