It looks like _Tiler is switching gears. Instead of a classic hot rod ispired Batmobile, he’s gone over to Marvel and built a slick motorcycle for his custom Nick Fury. The bike is neat, but I’ll admit my desire for an official Fury figure is what prompted me to post this. This Fury is simple and well based on the one from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As much as I love the classic comic Nick Fury this one has certainly grown on me in the last few years and I can’t wait for LEGO to hurry up and give us something other than a sneak peak at this master spy.
Marvel has been building up to this point since Nick Fury made his first appearance at the end of Iron Man in 2008. There have been ups and downs in the outings of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, but for the most part they’ve been strong offerings with any blemishes (I’m looking at you Iron Man 2) being forgivable when you look at the the franchise as a whole. To say I’ve been excited about this movie would be an understatement, but even more than the characters individual films this one has a lot to prove. So does it live up to the hype, the legacy and this long time comic fans expectations? The short answer is…
With the Comic Con announcement of the licensing of Marvel and DC there was a collective nerdgasm with LEGO and comic fans alike. There is so much potential with this it boggles the mind. Not only is there a positively vast library of reference material in the form of comic books, comic book movies are hot these days. It’s really too bad this didn’t happen a bit earlier because with this summer’s offering of Thor, Green Lantern and Captain America a lot of people (including myself) feel it was a bit of a missed opportunity.
