In addition to having 76000 Arctic Batman vs Mr Freeze: Aquaman on Ice and 76004 Spider-Man: Spider-Cycle Chase (although now that I double check, the former seems to be sold out at the moment), Amazon is now stocking 76005 Daily Bugle Showdown for immediate shipment. Price is $49.99. Order today and you’ll still get free shipping in time for Christmas.

You know, with the advent calendars offering ultra small models everyday for 24 days, some models really just suck hard. Of course, it could be worse. You could end up with a single element for the day. Larry Lars proves that great things can come in small packages. His micro-scale Tumbler pictured above is only 12 pieces. As a comparison, the AT-AT from day 10, which isn’t terrible, has the same piece count.
Now I’m wondering if a LEGO Super Heroes Advent Calendar is feasible. LEGO would probably have to make two separate calendars though, one for DC and one for Marvel.
And they would sell like gangbusters.
This new trailer gives us a look at the Man of Steel in action and I’ll admit it’s whet my appetite for more. Let us know what you think about this latest outing with the (not so) Last Son of Krypton.
The polls are finally over and the results are in, and it looks like it pays to be bad. The Heroes put up a great fight but the Villains came out on top in the end. Here are the three winners as chosen by FBTB forum members:
We’ll be contacting those three about the prizes shortly, but I wanted to thank everyone who participated and once more congratulate all those builders who made it to the bracket stage. These contests wouldn’t mean anything if you all held back, and you always manage to impress me.
Check out this motorized Tumbler built by Paweł “Sariel” Kmiec. It’s got tons of features including headlights, independent front suspension, simulated flame exhaust, and remote firing mechanism that fires two Technic missiles. If only LEGO sold a kit like that, I bet it would sell like gangbusters.
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.
My apologies for the unexpected delay, but worry not. The final round is upon us and this time you will have until this Friday night to cast your votes. The polls got pretty close in the last round so I thought some extra time might be beneficial here. First up in the Winners Bracket we have Wolverine and Juggernaut squaring off:
(You can click on each image to go to their flickr page to browse more build photos). These two will be competing for first and second place, obviously. After that we have the Losers Bracket, with Hawkeye taking on Mr. Freeze:
These two will be battling for third place. As usual there is no prize for fourth place. So take your time, check out each mech again, then sign in to the forum and cast your votes!
When Si-MOCs‘ posted this diorama in the MOC showcase this morning I found it quite amusing, because my son just learned this song on the school bus yesterday and has been singing it ever since. It will be on display in December at the Toronto LEGO Store in Fairview, so if you’re in that neck of the woods be sure to check it out.
After a brief delay while the forum update got sorted out we’re ready to move on to the final four. The top two heroes and villains have been selected. The winners of these two polls will go head to head to determine the winner, but that doesn’t mean the other two are eliminated just yet. They’ll go up against each other to fight for third place. You have three days to vote again so click here to pick you favorite remaining hero, and here for the villain you want to see them battle. The final round will go up on Friday night.
