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.
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.
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.
While we are still enjoying the afterglow of our MOC Madness Tournament and amidst the voting phases, we have one more contest to run before we call it a year. This one is sponsored by The LEGO Group and it’s to promote the LEGO Super Heroes line. The prizes up for grabs are one LEGO Batman promotional figure and one LEGO Green Lantern promotional figure, both from San Diego Comic Con. Your task to build an original Batmobile and/or an original GreenLanternmobile. Sound easy? Check out the contest thread for the complete rules. The deadline is November 30th 2011. Good luck!
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.
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.
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.
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…
It’s got an awesome pose, great likeness and it’s an overall amazing MOC.
I just received the official images for the Superman minifig that the DC booth will be giving away at New York Comic Con this weekend. I’m not entirely sure what the distribution method will be but I’m pretty sure it’ll involve a line of some kind, waiting around for an undetermined number of minutes, and will be repeated daily. I know, helpful right? Below are more official images of the Batman and Green Lantern minifigs that will also be given away; they are the same exact figs that were offered at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year.
Staff Writer Rick Theroux will be attending the con on Friday and will be providing his initial impressions of the Batcave set along with a slew of images so stay tuned!
Congratulations to Thomas Hubbel for his first place prize winning video in the Super Heroes Unite! contest. For winning first place he will receive a DC Universe limited edition, hand painted, cold-cast porcelain maquette created as a 3D reference piece for the artists and not available for retail as well as the complete 2012 LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe collection. Also taking first is Tony Norton with his picture “A new take on the Batman’s Beginnings, LEGO Style.”
The contest runs until December with winners picked each month. Second prize winners will receive the complete 2012 LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe collection while third prize winners will receive the LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe Batcave set, LEGO Batman: The Video Game, and a Batman t-shirt. Once December rolls around, one grand prize winner of a trip for four to the Warner Bros. Studios, WB Animation, and LEGOLAND® California Resort along with the complete 2012 LEGO Super Heroes: DC Universe collection will be picked.
