First Doctor Who Project Reaches 10,000 Votes On CUUSOO

When CUUSOO made the announcement a couple of weeks ago that they would now be accepting projects themed around Doctor Who, it felt like there was a massive disturbance in the force. As though a million nerds cried out in joy and we’ll never here the end of it. I say the first, because the floodgates have opened and there are no less then 30 other projects on CUUSOO at the moment all focusing on one aspect of the Who-niverse or another.

The honour of the first to the finish line goes to Brickset resident and CUUSOO enthusiast, GlenBricker. The real shine on this project is the minifigures, provided by our very own Kaminoan. Voting for which figures will actually appear in the set is STILL open here, if you want to help pick what figures would be in the set. It’s not only one of the fastest projects to achieve 10,000 votes (it was started just two weeks ago and was at 9880 votes when I went to bed at 1 last night), but I think it’s the first to achieve that launched without having, what I would consider, a fully realized project.

I wish Kam and GlenBricker luck in the next phase of their projects journey. As always, they will certainly need it from this point on. It’s in the hands of the CUUSOO gods now.

Tomar-Re Joins The Fine Clonier’s Corps

Kaminoan continues his current trend with another experiment in LEGO Superhero scale by heading back to the DC camp. If you’re not a comic book fan you may not be familiar with Tomar-Re, but he has been a part of the Green Lantern mythos since the Silver Age revival of the superhero genre. I can only hope that LEGO will keep the line going long enough to provide the fans with classic secondary characters like this, even if they do give him a rubber head. Come to think of it, if you’re reading this Jared, I’ve always thought the large LEGO trolls kinda look like Kilowog.

War Machine For Your Viewing Pleasure

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.

THIS Is How You Do Iron Man

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.
