Few do strong LEGO character creations as well as nobu_tary. Just check out Metabee, Rei Ayanami and RX-77-2 Guncannon, all made by the same builder. But today’s build is none other than the caped crusader, which has been captured brilliantly despite a lack of facial features.
While the chunky brick build is obviously the best part about it, I think the cape (most likely from the LEGO Star Wars poseable action figure line) is worth a mention too. It probably doesn’t let the build glide through the air or block bullets, but it looks damn good.
Kevin Ryhal engages in a little Castle-building… Frank Castle, that is. For anyone who doesn’t know (and who’s been living under a rock and missed Daredevil Season 2) that’s the real name of the hardcase vigilante known as The Punisher.
The crimefighter’s signature suit and skull device are captured well here, but what makes the model for me is the posing and the stripped-back scenery. The image comes together like one of the classic covers from the Punisher: Warzone comic series, and coming from a serious John Romita Jnr fan, that’s high praise indeed. Best of all, I love that Kevin has perfectly rendered Frank’s broken nose…
Light and shadow can influence so much in a photo, and enhance the story you see. A great example is SHARPSPEED‘s interrogation room, featuring citizens of Gotham City. Even without a caption, the contrast in lighting of the inmate vs the shadows of security and the doctor at the other end of the room tell you about the power-play going on at that table. Makes you wonder what might happen next…
This LEGO bust of classic supervillain the Joker is pretty amazing, but the fact that it is creator Taylor Walker‘s first attempt at a brick-built character makes all the more so. I’m really looking forward to laying eyes (and paws) on it at the Bricks of Character table at BrickCon next month, where it’s crazy gaze will fit perfectly with this year’s Con theme: Madness!
Some talented folks over at Forest Fire Films decided to recreate the Suicide Squad teaser trailer in LEGO, and it’s great — though if the early reviews are anything to go by, it may even be better than the actual film! Jared Leto’s deranged Joker is even more creepy as a minifigure, but it’s doubtful we’ll ever see any official LEGO Super Heroes sets based on the film, which opens today.
Finally! After seeing others build Batman a LEGO batcave and Joker a LEGO funhouse, someone finally built Catwoman a secret home to call her very own. That someone is Jenn Lee and her kitty-friendly creation is purrfect! After all, what Catwoman lair would be complete without a 70s-style Catwoman costume, an entire wardrobe of sparkly capes, wigs, and handbags, and, of course, a boiling pit of lava to dispose of your enemies? I’m not sure if Batman and Robin were invited or decided to pop by unannounced for a visit, but either way, it seems they’ve overstayed their welcome.

The second half (see part 1 here) of my Forms of Gotham collection includes many of the staple Batman characters. The dark knight himself finally makes an appearance, as does his arch-nemesis the Joker. Building such a large group with wide-ranging styles and colors was particularly fun, as was bringing to life some of the most famous faces in comic book history.

Everyone knows Paul Hetherington is no stranger to phenomenal Batman-themed dioramas. Even so, I was completely blown away by Paul’s latest Batman build. This thing is brimming with clean lines, super-sharp details, and even moving parts! The 1950s Batman logo looks like a sticker rather than LEGO brick and the dual-distanced skyline is simply inspired. The Art Deco theater gives me chills it’s so good. Even the lamp posts look like tiny pieces of art. Seriously, look at a closeup photo and tell me you’re not going to start redecorating your living room in brown, black, and gold today. I know I am!
Paul explained that he modeled his Gotham theater off of the Marbro Theater which used to stand in Chicago. He also posted a terrific video showing all of the amazing power functions. Check it out here:

We’ve seen some pretty epic LEGO Batcaves here on The Brothers Brick over the years, including a Batcave built from 20,000 LEGO bricks and a super-detailed LEGO Batcave, and even Wayne Manor with a 1960’s Batcave. Chak hei Mok joins the Batcave builders club with this atmospheric lair featuring spots for multiple tumblers, a command post,

Just two days ago we revealed the next wave of Mighty Micros for DC, and now we have the Marvel variants to go along with them. The Twitter post announcing this morning them didn’t include names, but looking at the pictures we assume they will be Iron Man Vs. Thanos, Spider-man Vs. Scorpion, and Wolverine Vs. Magneto. Like the DC versions, these will probably be on display at at San Diego Comic Con in July and will retail for $9.99 USD.

They look awesome, don’t they?
