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.
LEGO released a whole wave of sets in North America on August 1st, including sets from Super Heroes, Ninjago, LEGO City Volcano and Technic.

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.

For some fans, comic and sci-fi convention season means making a custom costume for the event: cosplay. The character in Alysa Kirkpatrick‘s vignette is taking her construction very seriously, spending countless hours in front of a vintage sewing machine. She’s going to look so cool when it’s finished.
takamichi irie asks the viewer of this creation a very simple, very profound question: what if the Ghostbusters outsourced the creation of their equipment to Tony Stark? Looking past the cross-dimensional travel problems (or maybe this just exists in LEGO Dimensions), we would have something like this:
Not only is this a great little vignette and the idea behind it is genius, but it uses official sets to create something new. The scene looks to be the lower garage portion of 75827 Firehouse Headquarters and the Ghostbuster is a conversion of the Hulkbuster from 76031 The Hulk Buster Smash.
November brings a new major entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, will add a whole lot more magic to the expansive superhero world. Thanks to Amazon Japan, we’ve now got our first look at the LEGO version of Doctor Strange in 76060 Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum.
