LEGO Superheroes models on The Brothers Brick | Page 2
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.
First unveiled at Emerald City Comicon earlier this year, I’ve been itching to blog this gorgeous Batcave by Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey for nearly six months. Batman’s headquarters is built from over 20,000 parts, took more than 800 hours over twelve weeks to build, and weighs more than 100 pounds. The entire cave Continue reading →
Earlier today at BrickCon 2012 here in Seattle, LEGO unveiled 10937 Arkham Asylum. The set includes 1,351 1,619 pieces, will cost $160, and is due out in January 2013. UPDATE: 10937 Arkham Asylum Breakout is now available! Here’s the full press release: 10937 Batman™ – Arkham Asylum Breakout Ages 14+. 1,351 pieces. US $159.99 CA Continue reading →
Bruce Lowell‘s art deco depiction of the Dark Knight is a beautifully composed artwork of the brick. If you like it, also check out the other art deco batman creation by Dave Kaleta.
Mike McCooey once again made an ultra-posable figure this time depicting our favorite web-slinging superhero. With 48 points of articulation (not an easy feat to achieve with Lego), this Spidey can do what a spider can!
Flickr user Tiler has recently been working through creating various vehicles from The Dark Knight Rises in Lego form. We featured his Tumbler models not long ago, but he’s been hard at work since then adding to the roster. Although we’ve seen many fantastic versions of Batman’s vehicles over the years, but what grabbed me Continue reading →
If you liked Arthur Gugick‘s Anakin-Vader lenticular mosaic, then you’ll love his recent one that depicts Batman and the Joker.
Zane Houston has done a rather hilarious Super Heroes video for a contest on FBTB.net. I could watch this over and over…I especially like when the Hulk starts whooping Superman’s behind :-D I also like Zane’s camera rig that he made for the video shoot :D
We so rarely feature custom figures on here, and it’s high time to highlight one. Minh Pham creates exceptional custom figures, so the hardest part is actually picking one. The level of detail on this, like everything else in his portfolio, is just stunning. Gotham’s reckoning indeed.
We’ve seen some great LEGO Tumblers here on TBB over the years, but this mini version by Tiler just might be my favorite. With a great economy of parts and lighting to enhance the angles (black LEGO is especially tough to photograph), Tiler pulls it off wonderfully. He’s also built a batch of great camo Continue reading →
FBTB has been providing detailed coverage the Lego news at Comic-Con. One of the big reveals besides the first Hobbit set are the 2013 Lego superheroes minifigs. They include Mister Freeze, Aquaman, White Suit Batman, Bane, Commissioner Gordon, Robin, Scarecrow, Joker, Penguin, Harley Quinn, Spider-Man, Nick Fury, Venom, Nova, Jonah Jameson, Doctor Doom, and Beetle.

Dave Ware (BrickWares) just posted this absolutely awesome Superman mosaic. All I can say is WOW! …and I have to be honest, when I first saw the thumbnail pop up in my flickr contact feed this morning I didn’t click on it because I really didn’t think it was LEGO. Boy am I glad I Continue reading →
This fall, the 2012 Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention will be featuring a section dedicated to Lego where you can see and and display creations. In addition there will be Lego vendors, brickfilm showings, and discussion panels. Click on the poster below for more info.
A wing, a prayer, and psionic energy are the only things keeping this glider by Jack McKeen (madLEGOman) aloft. Jack built this for a competition on FBTB, to be an aircraft themed to accompany the X-Men character Psylocke. I don’t know much about Psylocke, aside from seeing illustrations, but apparently she has psionic abilities. In Continue reading →
The third-quarter LEGO sets are now officially out, led by both the new LEGO Lord of the Rings and Marvel Super Heroes sets. If you buy $50 from the LEGO Shop between now and the end of the month, you’ll get an exclusive Hulk minifig that’s not available in any set, for free. And you’ll Continue reading →
