Batman vs Superman By BrickNerd Beats WB To The Punchline

Batman Vs Superman

Batman v Superman may end up being the court case of the century, but I’m not looking forward to a DC universe with Man of Steel as the foundation. I am however, looking forward to the LEGO Batman Movie and I know I’m not alone in that respect. Admittedly, I’ve never been a fan of brick films and while some would think the stop motion look of The LEGO Movie would change that, the opposite happened as it really raised the bar. One young filmmaker named Tommy Williamson has taken up the challenge with his version of Batman vs Superman that would fit in well with the humor and tone of The LEGO Movie. He even managed to get a promotional poster by the notoriously talented and busy Paul Lee.

Tommy Williamson… sounds familiar. Wasn’t he the kid in The Shawshank Redemption? Either way, you can help support this up and coming BrickNerd by watching his video, visiting his website and YouTube channel. Good luck kid. Don’t get cocky!

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Available Now


Also available today is the highly anticipated (by me) LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. I have to wait until tomorrow to get mine due to the holiday here, but I will be playing it from sun up to sundown on Sunday and I can’t wait. So get to Gamestop today and grab your copy with the lovable scamp of an exclusive figure, Plastic Man. Still don’t know who Plastic Man is? Spend nine bucks, educate yourself and have fun doing it.

You’re welcome.

Will Arnett Voiced LEGO Batman Gets His Own Movie


Couldn’t get enough of Will Arnett’s take on Batman in The LEGO Movie? Well Warner Brothers is preparing another helping of Batitude in the form of a LEGO Batman spin-off for the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter is detailing that the project is being fast tracked by director Chris McKay and may even take over the 2017 release date for The LEGO Movie 2 all under the supervision of much of the first films create team and written by Seth Grahame-Smith.

We’ll keep you posted on this as details emerge.

Xenomurphy’s Arkham Asylum

Arkham Asylum 1

No stranger to large scale super hero themed builds, Xenomurphy takes a crack at crazy with his rendition of Gotham’s revolving door psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. I’d suggest clicking the picture and viewing it larger on Flickr to take in the details. Xm even provides a link to download what is essentially a book detailing the projects inspirations and development for this easily escapable nut house and it includes more pictures of the build. Is that insensitive, calling it that? Too bad, they’re straight up crazy.

Oh, and Happy Halloween FubTubbers!

Batgirl: Future Figure or Fabricated Fake?


When I saw this pop up all over Flickr yesterday I thought it was a custom job, but on closer look I questioned that initial response. It apparently came from a Bricklink seller in the Czech Republic called Votvik, but the pic has been pulled now. Like SDCC Green Arrow, this figure seems to follow the New 52 design, so if this is real we may see more from this beloved relationship destroying reboot. Yay!?

What say you, folks? Real or fake? Could this mean a Batman related set could again arrive sans Batman?

Via Flickrite, tormentalous among others.

Powerpig’s Remarkable Brick Sketches

Bleep Bloop

Surprisingly, there are other things happening in the world at the moment that don’t revolve around SDCC. Chris McVeigh has been busy with these great brick marker sketches that were inspired by his friends actual marker sketches. I’m sure there will be a lot of sketching going on this weekend and hopefully Chris will keep these brick versions coming. You can also check out his first sketch on Facebook.

Tumbler Reaches 10,000 Votes On CUUSOO

You know what that means, we could finally have an opportunity to buy an official set with Batman’s latest ride. Assuming you didn’t buy the original, or the one that is currently on shelves now… Brent Waller is the man behind this Tumbler, which is one of many on CUUSOO and his goal was to create what he felt was the most accurate LEGO Tumbler in minifig scale. That’s a tricky mission and in my opinion a true minifigure scale vehicle would be able to accommodate enough figures to have one behind each of it’s dual windows. Would that look too wide? Probably, but if I have to choose an inaccurate vehicle I may as well stick with what’s available already. The biggest this going for this creations chances is the fact that it fits within the size they seem to be going for in this range. However, that may work against it as well because LEGO re-engineers the models to fit with their current building standard and that would most likely land it very close to the pre-existing LEGO versions anyway. This makes it into the June review and I wish him luck in the next stage, my feeling at this point is that he’s really going to need it.

Batman & Helm’s Deep LEGO Game Videos

Here are a couple of quick video looks at the the new 50011 Lord Of The Rings: The Battle Of Helm’s Deep and 50003 Batman games. I’m really stoked to get both of these and the inclusion of Nightwing and Batgirl as characters makes me hopeful of near future minifig releases. Erik and I both agreed she’ll need a new molded helmet with red hair sticking out the back. Groovy.

Lego Board Games Toy Fair Coverage

Both Batman and Lord of the Rings are getting board games this fall, with awesome microfig line-ups sure to please fans.

50003 Batman 50011 LotR The Battle of Helm's Deep
Those two sets mark the end of our licensed set coverage however, since the few new Superhero sets were under a photo embargo and TMNT had nothing new to report on unfortunately. We do have more coverage of Lego’s original themes coming up tonight, as well as this board game that’s part of the new Chima line.

50006 Legends Of Chima

The anthropomorphic characters don’t work quite as well with printed faces alone, but it still looks fun and has some interesting parts for a decent price so it might be worth looking in to.

POP Goes The Batman!

LEGO Batman (POP! Hero)

This stubby little Batman by bruceywan is a spot on likeness of the Funko POP! Heroes version that he built for his son. I’m a fan of the vinyl toys and have wanted to buy a few of these for some time, but again, I don’t need to start another collection. Thankfully once again, a builder shows me I could just be building my own.
