LegoManiac’s Hold On Spidey! Game


Our old friend LegoManiac is back playing in the super hero sandbox and has reproduced this game in LEGO form for his daughter. I’ve never seen this game before, but it looks like my son would also love it so I may have to reproduce his reproduction so we can have a go at it ourselves. Being a big fan of the LEGO board games, I love seeing people make their own or even recreate existing ones out of brick. You can check out more pics of the game on LegoManiac’s family blog here.

This does give me another idea too, guess I’ll add it to the pile.

Sneak Peek Of Brick Journal 20

Cover for BrickJournal n°20 (July 2012)

2012 is sure to be the year of the Superhero with some huge movies ready to blow up the box office and LEGO sets popping up to fuel our MOCs and Hulk-like nerd rage. Set to land smack dab in the center of it all is Issue 20 of Brick Journal due in July with a heavy helping of all things LEGO Superheroes. Joe Meno hopes to have some behind the scenes info on the current Superheroes line as well as articles on fan-built creations, including those who sent pics to him in consideration for the cover. That hounour goes to LegoManiac (featured here before) with the shot pictured above of his revist to Gotham City. Congratulations to LM and thanks for the heads up! With any luck we’ll have this issue available in time for Comic-Con.

Batman Returns!

Though recently it feels that as a license, he never really left. If you’re as big a fan of the original 1989 Tim Burton Batman film as I am then you no doubt were surprised that the sequel was as good as it was. Trading in Jack Nicholson’s Joker for the Penguin played by Danny Devito doesn’t sound like a sure thing, but it was and Burton’s mix of gritty noir and campy throwback worked incredibly well. Every bit of that feeling is captured here in this 32 x 32 vignette by LegoManiac, alhtough a passing glance may make it easy to dismiss. The cramped quarters make it difficult to see all the details without taking a closer look, which you can do if you visit the gallery on his blog.

Batman: Gotham City


LegoManiac has been teasing this project for the last month and I highly suggest you take a look back through his photostream to check out his project’s evolution. I think the microscale cityscape is fantastic and he really managed to pull off some great effects without the use of photoshop (only the text is shop’d), even the bat signal is lego built. Nothing pleases me more than a creation that’s so well done that it outshines the minifig that inspired it.
