Following up his Iron Man custom, Kaminoan shows us his version of War Machine. Sweet stuff. They both need to be lit up to complete the effect. Though, I’m not sure if lighting up hand repulsors would be humanly possible.

We don’t feature a lot of custom minifigs on the front page of FBTB because….. well to be honest, I don’t know why. But, given the LEGO Superheroes license announced last month and after seeing the above, I couldn’t help but share. Jared “Kaminoan” Burks of FineClonier fame was commissioned to do the above set of figures. And in case you were wondering, no, they are not for sale.
A tough act to follow, LEGO is going to have a hard time making anything look as good.
Paul Lee, LEGO Ambassador for LUGOLA and all around good guy, set the theme for the Costa Mesa LEGO Brand Retail store for the next few weeks: Superheroes of Marvel and DC Comics. The display featured some large scale figs of famous superheroes from both brands, though DC Comics had a slightly larger presence. SandLUG member Matt Armstrong (monsterbrick), Mariann Asanuma (Model Gal) along with LUGOLA members Ezra (B. Ezra), Paul Lee (polywen), and myself helped fill out the display with miniland scale superheroes, miniature models, m-wings, and other items all to promote next year’s Superheroes license.
You can get a close up of Ezra’s contributions in his photostream.
As part of the Hero Factory line, LEGO will be releasing a series of Constraction sets based on a few key Marvel and DC Comics characters. On display at Comic Con were The Hulk and Iron Man from Marvel Comics, and Batman and Green Lantern from DC. No other info available at this time unless I missed something. Anyways, I’ll see what else I can dig up.
I was under the impression that the LEGO booth would have some of the actual DC Comics and/or Marvel Comics sets on display. Unfortunately, that was not the case. They did have what appeared to be near-final prototypes of DC Comics minifigs of Batman, Catwoman, Joker, Wonder Woman, and Poison Ivy. Marvel Comics minifigs were represented by Thor, Iron Man, Wolverine, The Hulk, and Captain America, but those were in various early prototype stages. I didn’t realize until I finally got back to my room and downloaded the images how they actually looked, so I’m going to try and take some better pics tomorrow. Until then, enjoy.
According to this article on StitchKingdom.com, the LEGO Super Heroes line will not only include the previously announced DC Comics license, but will also include Marvel Comics as well.
The first buildable characters in the LEGO SUPER HEROES collection are highlighted by Captain America, The Hulk and Iron Man. Select figures will be unveiled in the LEGO booth (#2829) during Comic-Con International at the San Diego Convention Center July 21-24.
My mind is officially blown.
FBTB will be there tonight snapping up as many pics as humanly possible. Keep your browsers dialed in right here for our complete coverage.
Thanks to Scott C. for the tip!
