Iron Man Gets Bust-ed by ZetoVince

IronMan Bust

Ever wanted to build a full scale replica of Tony Stark’s Iron Man armour, but didn’t know where to start? Well ZetoVince is half way there in scale and he isn’t even finished. With plans to complete the bust with an ARC reactor and full chest piece, you can bet this build will show up again when he’s completed his work. The LEDs are a nice touch and the articulated neck is as well, but I’m a big fan of the breakdown seen below. I really need to start considering a breakdown for travel and storage when I start my builds from now on.

This would look great next to matching War Machine and Iron Patriot busts, no?

Powerpig’s Remarkable Brick Sketches – Part Deux!

The Empire's Finest

Deux means two, for those of you who don’t speak French… like me. Chris McVeigh hasn’t slowed down in his creation of pop culture LEGO marker sketches and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to make exact copies of them and put my favourites up in a frame.

Review: 76006 Iron Man Extremis Sea Port Battle

1. Overview

This is a hard one to write an opening to. I could talk about how Iron Man 3 is now one of the highest grossing films of all time, taking in well over a billion smackeroos. I could prattle on about my view of the film and how I feel that jives with box office totals, or predict how Tony’s journey through the film could have lasting consequences for the future of the MCU. I’m not going to do any of that, because I’d prefer to not think too hard about the movie at all. It’ll be better for me that way. Instead, a novel idea…
Let’s take a look at the set!

Build Tony Stark’s Hall of Armor

Wondering what to do with all those Iron Man minifigures? Well, the LEGO Club’s got you covered with this downloadable set of instructions to build “Iron Man’s Laboratory” which, in my opinion, should be called, Tony Stark’s Laboratory or Hall of Armor, but I get it. I understand if you don’t label everything as Iron Man it loses its appeal. And the name Tony Stark isn’t as marketable as Iron Man.

Seems like a fun and easy build. Smashing Bricks says that you’ll need the sticker set from 76007 Malibu Mansion Attack.

Thanks to ninnymuggins for the heads up.

Review: 76008 Iron Man Vs. The Mandarin Ultimate Showdown

1. Overview

Ultimate Showdown. The name inspires visions of an epic battle between the Armoured Avenger and his megalomaniacal archenemy that would tax the limits of the two foes abilities and resources, ending in chaos, destruction and a spectacular defeat for one side or the other.

Alternately: This.

Men Of Iron

Just a quick shot I took of all the official suits while working on my Iron Man 3 reviews, which should be along in the next day or so. I’ve been itching to see them all together since the IM3 sets were announced. I’m just wondering if I should do one of my reviews as a synopsis of the film based ONLY on the trailer and these three sets. Could be interesting. Crazy, but interesting.

Now to start building my Hall of Armour.

Legohaulic’s “Brute” Strength

Iron Man 3 Hulkbuster Armor

LEGO isn’t waiting until the highly anticipated Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3rd to release it’s sets based on the property and the fans aren’t waiting to build either. Legohaulic built this version of what many are calling the “Hulkbuster” armour as a commission and the overall shape of the body is great. Seeing it in the trailer bust through the shipping containers in a full tilt dash reminded me much more of Marvel’s unstoppable Juggernaut. The only info attached to the original concept art where it appeared in the standard red and gold described it as “Brute” armour and that certainly fits. Its chunky design, hunched back and forearm hazard stripes (not included on the model, but that would have been impressive to pull off in purist form) indicate this guy was built less for busting monsters and more for Tony’s heavy lifting. I expect to see a great many suits pop up when the movie comes out and everyone has had a good look, but the early bird gets the worm.

With suits of armour in the trailer resembling the Stealth, Deep Space, Silver Centurion and other classic looks, which would you most like to see in LEGO form? Brick-built or minifig? I’m still down for Iron Patriot, but I’d take a Silver Centurion any way you build it as well…

A Peek In Tony Stark’s Closet

CaptainFordo posted this picture he found by SolidBrixStudios which highlights three of the new sets of armour along with the two previously released bobble heads. The only thing this picture is missing is the Toy Fair Tony from last year. I still have my fingers crossed for an Iron Patriot War Machine though, to round out the set. You can take another look at a couple of the suits in the Super Bowl Extended Look below.

The race is on to see who’ll complete their official Hall of Armour first!

Iron Man Mark VII Armor

GRANOV POSE FLARE

Super Hero fan mmccooey spent the summer building large scale super poseable figures of some of comics’ greatest characters and why not, it was definitely a summer of heroes. He started with the Dark Knight, moved on to the Merc with a Mouth and finished with a Spectacular showing before going into stand-by mode. Before his temporary self imposed exile, he teased at an Avengers themed build for the holiday season. Well Happy Holidays, Iron Man has arrived! This is a great model that’s packed with functionality and play features, so take a look through the gallery and let the work speak for itself. I hope his other Avengers turn out this good. Excelsior!
