Tommy Williamson, of BrickNerd, has just released a hilarious film depicting an encounter between the Hero of Gotham and the Hero of Metropolis. The movie poster is pretty awesome as well…

I love the brightness of this rover. The white highlights really seem to jump out and I love the steering mechanism! Using the pistons makes for a really smooth turn. Very nicely done, David!
This last weekend in Seoul, the LEGO fan group Brickinside put on an incredible display! One creation in particular really jumped out at me. Built by Hayarobie, this vintage record player is full of awesome details. I especially love the transistors and other electronic wizardry going on there.
Tim Inman, AKA RabidNovaRacer, is off to the races with this sleek race car. I love the angles and curves that he was able to achieve on this beauty. It’s definitely full of win and raring to go!
Henry F. (AKA Dubbadgrim) has risen from the dead and created this hilarious little scene. I love the effect of the creature bursting through the floor! It’s really extremely well-done.
It isn’t often that we see such excellent video of a collaborative train layout and it certainly helps that there are some really lovely trains in there too. Hats off to Michael Gale for a job well done!
The video is on Flickr as well, if you prefer that or want to leave a comment there.
Edit (JW): This is not actually a collaborative layout. Michael built the whole thing. Most impressive!
David Smith Alexander has been working on a series of Greek Shadow Art and they are truly unique. While they look simple, telling a story with all black figures in silhouette is not easy. Doing it with LEGO makes it even harder.
This lovely scene by Tim Schwalf is packed with really nicely planned details. The wainscotting and trophy heads are a great touch but I think my favorite bits are the hat and scarf on the coat rack.
Today, shortly after 1600 GMT, a historic event took place. The European Space Agency successfully landed a spacecraft on a comet. “We are there. We are sitting on the surface. Philae is talking to us, we are on the comet”, celebrated Stephan Ulamec, Philae lander manager. Víctor Martínez Nouvilas also celebrated the event by recreating the historic moment of touchdown. There were moments of uncertainty as it was not apparent if Philae’s harpoons had managed to anchor the spacecraft in place, but it appears that all is well. This marks an important milestone in the mission as the spacecraft was launched over a decade ago. Quite an exciting day! It will be fascinating to find out what kind of information Philae will send back to us as it explores it’s new home.
