LEGO Toy Fair 2012: The LEGO Booth

LEGO Toy Fair 2012 - LEGO Booth - 07

It’s always a treat to see how LEGO decorates the corners of their booth at Toy Fair. This year they are understandably making a push on their hot new IP line, LEGO Super Heroes, and their feminist-angering girl-friendly line, LEGO Friends.

The Super Heroes corners was the most interesting. Rather than going with a mural or a large statue, a bas relief of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman adorned one corner. It was a combination of a studs-out mural type of build with a traditional sculpture construction technique.

And finally, LEGO had an approximately six-and-a-half-feet-by-six-and-a-half-feet tall sculpture of the Hulk minifig on the conventional hall floor. Lean, mean, and green, it will probably give you an idea of what the final painted face will look like for Hulk if you squint your eyes and blur your vision a bit.

A Totally Different Kind Of Batmobile

Batmobile: 2025!

Lino Martins is never afraid to push the envelope. For the latest LUGNuts challenge, Batmobile: 2025, his contribution is like no other Batmobile I’ve ever seen. Conceived as a COE, steeped in retro art deco, armored to the gills and badass front to back. I can just imagine what this would sound like roaring down the streets of Gotham.

Proudlove’s Batmobile

When Flickr group LUGNuts announced its Build Challenge 51 – Batmobile: 2025, I knew we were in for a treat. As is usual the big guns are always late to the party, but they rarely disappoint. Nathan Proudlove recently contributed this pretty cool Batmobile. Be sure to check out Nathan’s photostream for more pics, including the lighting features.

LEGO Art Deco Batman Poster

Batman Art-Deco Poster

The LEGO Super Heroes Unite! contest may be closed to new entries, but davekaleta is still pounding away at the DC Comics MOC’s. His latest is a fantastic LEGO recreation of this poster and I for one would hang it on my wall in a heartbeat. LEGO as art is a cool concept, but when you throw an extra helping of pop culture into the mix it really takes it to the next level.

Keep them coming folks!

Artifex’s Tumbler and Batpod

Tumbler cover

It’s hard not to get excited when you see the tumbler. It’s really hard not to get excited when you see a LEGO built tumbler. But a LEGO built tumbler with spinning flames, side bombs, movable features, detailed cockpit and transforming Batpod? I defy you not to get excited. Flickr user Artifex creation offers up this excellent rendition of my favorite Batmobile.

Wheels of Justice Contest Reminder

Announcing The Wheels of Justice Contest

I realize we JUST launched this contest a few days ago, so it might seem a bit premature for a contest reminder post, but I have good reason. Forum member volumex kindly pointed out to me that the deadline to enter the monthly contest on LEGOSuperHeroes.com is the 15th of every month. So to be eligible for December’s contest, which happens to be the last month they’ll be holding a contest, you must submit your entries to their site by the 15th of November. Our contest deadline isn’t changing: you have until the 30th of this month to enter in either the Batmobile and/or the GreenLanternmobile category.

Good luck to all.

Super Heroes Unite! September Winners

Completely slipped my mind last month to check out September’s winners of LEGO’s Super Heroes Unite! contest until I caught wind that Mark (andertoons) Anderson took a second place prize pack of the complete 2012 LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe collection for his stunning Cat Woman Line Art.

LEGO Catwoman Line Art - Full

The first prize winners of all that DC Universe LEGO swag as well as a limited-edition hand-painted cold-cast porcelain maquette were Kyle Fleming’s LEGO Batmam: Return Of The Joker & Shelby Pritchard’s An Interview With Batman. Kyle’s video was created for a class, so I guess one way or another he got an A.

One of 4 third prize winners Ian Norris scored a brand spanking new Batcave set, LEGO Batman: The Videogame and a T-Shirt for his LEGO-fied comic cover for “The Man Of Plastic”.

Congrats to all the winners who you can check out here and don’t forget the contest continues until a grand prize is drawn in December so get your entries in! October’s winners should be posted soon.

Minifig Scale Tumbler

Tumbler

I love the Tumbler, Batman’s kick-ass vehicle from Batman Begins and Dark Knight. Not only for it’s complex lines and aggressive posture, but from it’s concept as a converted military prototype. True that a vehicle of such special purpose and limited use would be unlikely to ever make it to prototype form…BUT IT’S SO COOL! This version by Flickr user ZetoVince captures everything I dig about it, and does so at pretty accurate scale and with excellent technique.

The Dark Knight In “Mood Scale”

The Dark Knight (Moodland Scale)

I have to admit, I’ve never heard of “mood scale” before I saw this pic, but I dig the concept. Building on what has classically been a mecha platform to create characters, I like it! Flickr user M<0><0>DSWIM brings us these sweet MOCs, and there’s more to view on his photo stream. After learning about it I also found this…

General Grievous 1

It’s got an awesome pose, great likeness and it’s an overall amazing MOC.
