If I were Ron Perlman, I might be a little concerned. LEGO Hellboy came out of nowhere and showed off its clone-like resemblance to his comic book counterpart. I mean, there’s always the matter of the LEGO-man’s small stature, but anything can be edited with special effects these days. And just think of the money they’d save on wardrobe and ...
