Fans of Megaman should know this fellow, Megaman's predecessor, Protoman. Build by retinence as commission, I'm sure the recipient of this awesome figure is going to be thrilled to have it on a shelf. The build quality is top notch, both the contouring and proportions are excellent, and the character is instantly recognizable.
On Halloween we all face our fears, even Batman. Of all the evil villains of Gotham, Scarecrow has to be one of the scariest. Let's face it, Penguin isn't scary, and Poison Ivy is just, well, you know. But Scarecrow...*shudder*. This version by vitreolum strikes all the right notes. And just check out his awesome Batman, it's a one-two character punch!
This is a genuine slice of my childhood. It just wasn't Halloween until we watched It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, and now this blog feels like Halloween too. You don't get much simpler in design than this little scene by cmaddison, but it's positively perfect.
In a distant, bleak future, hard suits and mechs will do battle on war torn urban battlefields. But the guy that wears a suit and then wears another suit will pretty much own the place. I like to imagine the pilot dressed in a smart three piece by Armani. You know, a suit within a suit within a suit.
Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane...actually it is a plane. It's another stunning fantasy aircraft from Jon Hall. This one is particularly awesome since it's asymmetrical and totally reminds me of the B-Wing from Star Wars. Like all of his planes this one sports excellent design, amazing color work and custom decals, plus this one sports working flaps. And as always a pilot ready for action.
Just in time for Halloween and what I'm sure is plenty of binge viewing of the Saw franchise (what's wrong with you people?) comes this fabulous recreation of Billy, Jigsaw's puppet. Who would have thought the cheery spiral printed domes and 1x1 round tiles would have come to such handy use in a scary prop?
You know...Starlord? Oh c'mon, you've never heard of him? From builder Orion Pax comes this sweet reproduction of the mask from Guardians of the Galaxy. I don't know if it's actually wearable, but the scale is very close to 1:1. And as if that wasn't enough the eyes glow with the aid of some light bricks.
This here is a trifecta of total awesome. Builder and illustrator polywen has assembled a side by side by side of his reproductions of classic issue #27 of Detective Comics, the premier of Batman. In the middle is his inspiration, the original cover from 1939. On the right is his excellent LEGO minifig illustration. And on the left is his mind-blowing MOC for the Comic Bricks art show for DesignerCon 2014.
