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…

Legohaulic’s Bust-ed Boba Fett

Boba Fett Helmet 01

In some ways Boba Fett is the Elvis of the Star Wars Universe. His outfit is instantly recognizable, he partied like a rock star, died in a humiliating fashion and yet many of his fans refuse to believe that he’s really dead. Legohaulic’s Bust of the galaxy’s greatest bounty hunter is a excellent build at this small scale and a fitting tribute to the character who could also be looked at as the SWU equivalent of Schrödinger’s cat.

MOC Madness 2011

The MOC Madness 2011 tournament has come to a close and the winners have finally been determined. Before we announce the winners, I’d like to thank everyone who participated and submitted an entry. It was a real pleasure seeing the entries rolling in. We try to format the bounty hunter tournament to be as open ended as possible and the submissions did not disappoint. There was a wide range of styles and designs, and the winning entries reflect that range. So, without further ado, I present the winners.
