LEGO Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy

Sean and Steph Mayo just posted the most adorable Baby Groot (Sapling Groot?) ever. It was for a commission and I have to say that the new owner is very, very fortunate. I am Groot!

You should also check out two other versions by Jack M and Tyler. We’ve highlighted Tyler’s Groot before, but missed the boat on Jack’s.

Comic Bricks at Designer Con

This weekend, STUDS (the collectible card series) hosted a LEGO art show at Designer Con in Los Angeles. The theme of the show was comic book covers, and builders were asked to build their own rendition of a cover of their own choice. From the photos in the gallery, I must say that the results were largely spectacular (they actually make me feel like my own contribution was insufficient).

I think my absolute favorite is this Captain Marvel cover by Zach Clapsdale (zachmoe), but I encourage you to take a look draw your own conclusions.

Giant LEGO tribute to Mouse Guard unveiled at BrickCon

If you’re a fan of fantasy and/or talking rodents, then there’s so much to love about David Petersen’s world of Mouse Guard. This groundbreaking and expansive comic book series, with its rich cast of characters and detailed world, has already been turned into a roleplaying game, and now even rumors of a movie version abound.

Canadian builder Paul Hetherington unveiled this enormous homage to Mouse Guard at BrickCon last week, and promptly won “Best in Show” for his efforts.

Paul is well known for his epic minifig based dioramas such as the Fabuland Fun Fair and Joker’s Funhouse. So I’m personally rather excited by his recent diversion into the weird little world of brick-built characters! It was great to see both his Mouse Guard and Tintin builds in the flesh last week.

 

And if just one LEGO Mouse Guard creation is not enough to satisfy you, Seattle’s ArchLUG is planning a series of Mouse Guard themed builds for Emerald City Comic Con next March, so watch out for that!

Lucky Luke: The Man who Shoots Faster than his Shadow

I may not recognize the specific character, but the sculpting and sheer personality completely caught my eye. According to Jimmy (6kyubi6), this here is Lucky Luke, and he’s know as the man who shoots faster than his shadow. He’s from a Belgian comic series, which is set in the American Old West.
