We’ve seen loads of LEGO builds on TBB by Lego_nuts over the last three years. But his latest creation, allowing us to peer into the mind of the irreverent Stan Lee, has got to be my favorite yet! His large-scale office is full of references to Marvel properties, from an expertly crafted Infinity Gauntlet to Stark’s arc reactor. The use of the Constraction heads as busts on the shelf behind Lee is top notch. But it’s the big man himself that steals the show in this scene. The creation exudes that friendly charisma that Stan was known for, with his smiling face behind a white mustache. His glasses are spot-on at this scale, and I’m pretty sure Lee’s worn that exact outfit in one of his many movie cameos.

LEGO Marvel Superheroes Mech Armor mania: Wolverine, Iron Man, & Black Panther [Review]
The one constant about Tony Stark is that he’s always working on upgrades; portable suitcase armor, Hulkbuster add-ons, nanotech. And now it seems he’s helping his friends armor up with a line of Marvel Mechs from LEGO. Miles Morales, Thor, and Cap already got in on the fun, and now Wolverine and Black Panther are joining Tony in a new wave. Does mech armor make the hero as much as clothes make the man? Or are these largely extraneous accessories for what are already Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Let’s find out with a closer look at 76202 Wolverine Mech Armor (142 pieces, US $9.99 | CAN $13.99 | UK £8.99), 76203 Iron Man Mech Armor (131 pieces, US $9.99 | CAN $13.99 | UK £8.99), and 76204 Black Panther Mech Armor (125 pieces, US $9.99 | CAN $13.99 | UK £8.99), which are scheduled to drop on April 1st.

When we all learned to sit thought the credits
After a long, hard afternoon of repelling alien invasions, sometimes you just need to sit down for some shawarma. This virtual LEGO build by Lego_nuts captures this quiet post-credits moment from the first Avengers film in exquisite detail. I love the details hidden among the carnage like the printed 1×1 round tiles in the vending machine. And making the fries out of LEGO Rocks works pretty well, too. It really does just look like a still frame from the movie.
Composed 2385 bricks, the scene took 15 hours to build. If you’re interested in how this shot was…dare I say it?….assembled, you’ll enjoy this video that goes through the entire process.

Build your very own Iron Man Mark 1 in Chibi style
Everyone can (almost) be Tony Stark with the right instructions, and here’s your (pretend) chance to be an Avenger! Hachiroku24’s cute chibi version of the Mark 1 from the movie that kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe is adorable in every single way. And it’s complete with the added missile launcher and the flame thrower. I’ve gotta love how the negative space is created with the cheese slopes bring the character’s eyes to life. Well? What are you waiting for? Go burn some bad guys already!
Yup. That’s one fully Assembled Avenger
By now the ending of Avengers: Endgame has been well and truly revealed to the world through Disney’s own marketing. The fact that Captain America can wield Thor’s hammer is common knowledge. Regardless of how you feel about that sort of spoiler, you are sure to find joy in Sam Beattie‘s recreation of the iconic moment in LEGO. Sam has enhanced the build with a few custom stickers, but even without them, there’s no question of what you’re looking at. (LEGO has released a large scale figure of Cap in the past – 2012’s Buildable Hero Captain America (Set 4597). I think it’s fair to say that the look there is…somewhat less accurate than’s Sam’s.
Some of the fun details from the build are the use of a gold ingot for Cap’s belt buckle and the whip used to shape Mjolnir’s strap. I also like how the support beams in the rubble work well at this larger scale. Standing atop that rocky and flame-strewn battlefield, Cap looks ready to kick some serious butt. And speaking of butt, here’s a rear view of the build showcasing “America’s ass.”
Oh Captain, my captain
LEGO mosaics are near and dear to my heart, as is the character of Captain America. Bluesecrets brings both together in a stunning creation featuring Cap in his bearded “Nomad” phase. This mosaic is 45 inches wide by 35 inches tall (about 114 x 89 centimeters) and is comprised of nearly 40,000 plates. Many brick mosaics use a “studs out” approach where the top of the brick is visible. In contrast, Bluesecrets uses a “studs up” technique where the plates are stacked on top of each other. This allows a higher level of detail in the image, but requires different (and, in my experience, trickier) craftsmanship as the “pixels” that make up the image are rectangular instead of square.
