Juggernaut and rampage are two words in the English language you don’t want to hear together and yet here we are. This particular Juggernaut is in reference to the X-Men baddy whose schtick is using his bullet-shaped head as a battering ram. For some reason when I try the same thing the results are less than optimal. Here we see Wolverine either trying to stop him or going for a ride on the massive belligerent brawler’s back. Either way, this portion of the X-Mansion is surely about to turn into rubble. This fun X-Men LEGO diorama is brought to you by The Brothers Brick alumni Tim Lydy. I really like Juggernaut’s running stance and Wolverine’s leap lines created with clear flex tubes are a nifty touch. It appears as if Wolverine was tasked with mowing the lawn just as the big bruiser came barreling through.
This epic LEGO diorama sees Wolverine squaring up against impossible odds; somehow you know your money’s still going to be on Logan though. Builder Joshua Morris notes that this sense of scale and danger was the inspiration behind the model.
The use of the knee-high walls and the devastated street do a great job of framing the scale and power of the three sentinels. Lower the lights and the menace–factor increases, the glowing eyes and chest plates setting the mood; looking to the entire world like the very best comic book illustration.
Wolverine and his claws, for some reason is a very popular Iron Builder Subject. I’m not sure why, maybe he’s the rough and tumble guy we all love, or more likely we all made the SNIKT! sounds as kids with knives in our hands. And in true Iron Builder form Letranger Absurde (vitreolum) brings us another iconic Wolverine build:
In particular the hair is masterfully done, particularly the iconic sideburns and pointy tips.
I couldn’t decide which I liked better. I really couldn’t. The heat is on between Andrew Lee and Simon Liu with this most recent Iron Builder. I (along with many other girls my age) really find Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine easy on the eyes, so there’s a point there. But the GRID is just so stunning.
I don’t envy the judges.
Although many fans of the X-Men can’t abide 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I have a special fondness for the film. When I was layed up in the hospital for a week it played every 6 hours or so on the limited selection of cable TV channels, so I got to know the film quite well. Timed perfectly with the interval of my morphine drip I found it very entertaining, with memorable lines like “I think there’s a naked man in our barn”, “Activate the Deadpool!” and my personal favorite “Wow. Koo-koo-ka-choo got screwed.”
