This is the biggest set in the line of licensed sets from Man of Steel, the new Superman movie due out in Continue reading →
LEGO Superheroes models on The Brothers Brick
Long before LEGO released Marvel and DC Universe Superheroes sets, LEGO fans were building their own Batmobiles and Batcaves, custom Avengers and X-men. Whether you’re looking for news about the official sets or want to check out some really great custom LEGO models inspired by the world of comic books, you’ve come to the right place.
Minh Pham (Tuminio) created a series of highly-detailed custom minifigs Iron Man suits including the Hulkbuster armor. You can see more photos of these minifigs on Minh’s Flickr photostream along with dozens of other custom minifigs from all sorts of influences.
An iconic scene deserves an iconic photo, and Project Azazel doesn’t disappoint. The approach to this photo with forced perspective gives it a larger feel. Oh, and it lights up. I was totally sold at the working Batsignal.
76006 Extremis Sea Port Battle is the last of the Iron Man 3 sets I’ll be reviewing. Be sure to also read my reviews of the Malibu Mansion Attack and the Ultimate Showdown sets, if you’ve missed them. The Extremis Sea Port Battle consists of an Extremis speedboat driven by badman Aldrich Killian, and Iron Continue reading →
76008 Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown is the smallest set of the trio of LEGO sets for the upcoming Iron Man 3 film. With only a vehicle and two minifigs, it’s clearly an action-based set. The box includes two un-numbered bags, the instructions, and the same 10-page comic as the other Iron Man Continue reading →
76007 Malibu Mansion Attack is the largest of the current round of sets for the upcoming Iron Man 3 movie, which releases May 3rd. Since this set is based on a movie that’s not out yet, this review may contain mild spoilers for the film. The set consists of a piece of Tony Stark’s seaside Continue reading →
There are some structures you’d think just wouldn’t translate well into LEGO, and Superman’s frigid Fortress of Solitude, with its towering icicles seems like it’s one of those things. But then a talented individual, in this case Chris Melby, comes along and builds a jaw-dropping version in LEGO. This cathedral of ice is simply gorgeous. Continue reading →
If you didn’t get enough of Harlem Shake from that last video we posted, this one’s for you courtesy of SpastikChuwawa.
One benefit of getting together with other LEGO fans at local club meetings is that you get to hear the thought process that goes into their LEGO models. Shawn Snyder (Flickr) has been building fantastic character sculptures for years — remember his amazing Predator bust? — and lately he’s been bringing his figures to SEALUG Continue reading →
Marvel and LEGO have just announced another video game from TT Games, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. The game will feature an original storyline and is due out this autumn.

Continuing his builds of Lego super heroes figures, Mike McCooey brings us his latest: Iron Man.
Not content with the barrage of carols, mistletoe and evergreens, Simon Liu presents a visual guide to an alternate version of Jingle Bells. Made possible by the dynamic duo themselves and a familiar cast of characters and bright colors. You can see each of the lyrics on their own. And for those that would like Continue reading →
I always enjoy when a LEGO builder surprises me. As much as I love all of the mecha, sky-fi, and Vic Vipers that Fredoichi builds, he’s actually quite a diverse builder who’s been dabbling recently in medium-scale sculptures. His latest is an interesting bust of Captain America. Fredo accomplishes some of the detail with stickers, Continue reading →
Here is a little mosiac that I worked up this week. As some of our readers know, I’ve been dabbling in mosaics for the last year. This one is based on the 60′s version of the Batman logo as I am planning to attend Emerald City Comic Con next year and Adam West will be Continue reading →
SPARKART has built a rather fantastic entry for the FBTB Mecha Madness contest. The premise of which is to build a mecha designed for a super hero or villain. And who better a subject than Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. The build itself is quite good, but the ‘descriptive’ weapon systems totally had me Continue reading →
