Today might be a witty day for a Star Wars celebration, but it also happens to be the day The Avengers film is released. And with as much excitement as the rest of us, but a with great deal more effort and skill, Ken Robichaud (aka buriedbybricks) is showing his enthusiasm for Marvel’s latest film. Continue reading →
LEGO Superheroes models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
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.
Thorsten (Xenomurphy) captures the action from an explosive battle between Spider Man and the Green Goblin. What may be more impressive is the construction of the building, which in addition to the graffiti on both sides, also features tiles used in place of plates to create the texture of a real brick wall.

If I learned nothing else at Emerald City Comicon last weekend (post to follow shortly), it’s that I’m much more of a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So I’m a lot more excited by the official release today of the LEGO Marvel sets than I was about the DC sets a few months back. Continue reading →
LEGO Marvel sets are coming out shortly (watch this space, as they say), as is The Avengers in movie theaters. LEGO has recreated the poster for the movie with the minifigs from the upcoming sets, plus some that aren’t currently scheduled for any sets. I’m still not sold on Tony Stark’s Iron Man helmet/mask, which Continue reading →
Matt De Lanoy has made this wonderful mosaic of the protagonists from one of my favorite webcomics, The Order of the Stick. He’s portrayed the characters perfectly, even capturing a bit of the humor, with poor halfling Belkar being almost out of frame. Just seeing this mosaic makes me want to go read more OOTS.

Marvel has revealed the first pictures of some of the upcoming Lego Avengers sets. The sets and minifigs look good except for Iron Man, who must have been modeled after a bobblehead version :) Via Brickset
Rod Gillies built this great TV to showcase his new LEGO Superman minifig. The TV cabinet is lovely, and the background includes excellent details like little puffy clouds and microscale, forced-perspective buildings. But it gets even better. The background behind Superman scrolls!
2012 Batman and Superman sets are out a couple weeks early from LEGO Shop online. The new sets include 6864 The Batmobile and the Two-Face Chase, which goes for $50 and includes five minifigs. So far, the Man of Steel is only available in 6862 Superman vs. Power Armor Lex, which also includes Lex Luthor Continue reading →
LEGO was kind enough to send us a pair of the LEGO Super Hero minifigs distributed exclusively at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this year, and we’re going to give them away to two TBB readers. One reader gets Superman Batman, and another gets Green Lantern! To enter this raffle, just leave a comment on Continue reading →
Mr. Xenomurphy has been building daily for the past 2 months on this action-packed diorama for the Superhero contest. A lot of custom decals add details and realism such as in this shot. Visit MOCpages for the full gallery including work in progress and design pictures.
I’m quite willing to make the call that George Panteleon’s (ZetoVince) The Batman’s Tumbler from Dark Knight is the best I’ve ever seen at minifig scale.
This is simply incredible. I passed it over several times because I thought it was a drawing. People are always saying that some build or other doesn’t look like LEGO. Well, this one really doesn’t. This build is nothing short of outstanding. Mark Anderson built it. Obviously, he is awesome.
Mr. Xenomurphy‘s scene of the battle between Spider-Man and Sandman justly portrays this somewhat obscure villain. The building, despite being the backdrop, is also another highlight of the scene. The usage of 1X2 bricks and tiles mimics the realistic look of the buildings.
As readers will have noticed in our LEGO News feed last week, custom minifig accessory vendor BrickForge has just released a new batch of items, including a new “Shock Trooper” armor. We ordered a couple batches, and I managed to find enough sunshine in the Seattle “summer” to take a few pictures. The armor comes Continue reading →
It’s always nice to see our little hobby get some broader exposure, so it was great to see Nathan Sawaya‘s sculpture of Conan O’Brian‘s superhero alter ego “The Flaming C” on the show the other night, but Andy Richter deserved his own LEGO homage, too. Hilarity ensues.
