Players are transported into 18 different Marvel locations that have been “ripped from time and space into the incredible open hub world of Chronopolis”.

You can see a bit of the gameplay in the official trailer:

Mini Hulkbuster punches above its weight

At first glance this wee Hulkbuster looks enormous, then you realise that Iron Man’s head is that of the Minifigure and Tony Stark’s infamous arc reactor is a single tiny element. The Ka. Lor Project has created the Hulkbuster, Crimson for your viewing pleasure. As the name suggests, the Hulkbuster was specifically designed for hand-to-hand combat with the rampaging Hulk. During its maiden run, the armour enabled Stark to temporarily hold his own in sustained physical combat with the Hulk. This mighty miniature has so many fine details and tons of tiny greebling, I love everything about this heavy Hulk harrassing hybrid.

Iron Man and War Machine are looking a bit blocky

Builder nobu_tary delves deeply into the blocky nature of LEGO bricks with this pair of Stark hardsuits. This building style is very distinctive and I love the exaggerated effect. There’s a ton of small details to look for such as the shades of old grey vs new grey pieces in War Machine, the use of an official Iron Man print, and a very clever slit technique for the “eyes”. All topped off with that signature mecha pose; let’s puff out those chests, boys!

3,000 piece custom minifigure-scale Guardians of the Galaxy Milano

Many of you have probably seen the official LEGO Milano 76081 from the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, or maybe even read our review of the microscale Milano which LEGO is currently giving away. Tyler Clites liked the ship so much, he made his own custom 3000 piece minifig-scale version with full interior! At 2 feet wide and a foot long, Tyler has recreated the unique shapes and curves of the craft with some very clever building techniques; the “beak” of the ship looks fantastic, and he has captured the swept back wings and feathered ailerons with style.

Tyler also teamed up with The Brick Show to show off all the details in his model:

Guardians from a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away

When I first laid eyes on this, my brain refused to comprehend the crossover theme! Builder BrickinNick certainly accomplished his mission to put me in a daze. At first glance, I could see Chewbacca and Han Solo, but then something told me it was also Groot and his buddy Rocket Racoon. So is it a Groobacca and a Han Raccoon duo or a Chroot and a Rocket Solo team? You take your pick! I’m still bewildered and amazed.

Oh, you have a Hulk? That’s nice

As part of Creations for Charity 2016, builder Tim Lydy has created a rather worn out LEGO rendition of Thor’s brother Loki. This version of the character is sporting the much brighter attire of the character’s original comic book design and it looks great in brick form.

Loki

Loki’s extremely relaxed posture is thanks to him actually being constructed in several smaller sections that aren’t attached to each other, but to the chair instead. The other big trick here is the rug which I definitely thought was not LEGO, but apparently is. Tim states that it’s an official piece from Duplo set 5598 Dino Valley.
