Super Shiny Batpod

I have to admit once I got over the temporary paralysis upon first seeing this beauty by ianying616 I thought to myself “Batman would never ride a chrome Batpod”, but upon further thought I’m not so sure. The thing about chrome (and what makes it hard to illustrate, and render for that matter) is it’s not really its own color, but characterized by its environment. It reflects what’s around it, and in Batman’s case, wouldn’t that be the darkened streets of Gotham? Might not be so bad after all.

Lobo

I'm not familiar with the DC character Lobo, but after seeing this ginormous build by Shawn Snyder I'm now curious. This MOC is over 30" long, 18" wide and 17" tall, a truly colossal character build. And building at this scale allows for incredible levels of detail, just look at this baby. Shawn displays at BrickCon every year, so I'm hoping I'll get to see this in person in October.

It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's A Cubist Interpretation

Superman has probably never been edgier (see what I did there?) than in this cool cubist version by builder Amida Na. The man of steel is a man of bricks, and I think he looks pretty super. Now some may debate that everything in LEGO is cubist, or even say that this isn't cubism at all (art is so subjective) but no one can deny that this is pretty awesome.

The Arrowcave (We're Not Calling It That)

Here at BrickNerd, we like to occasionally do a blast from the past. . .

Arrow is one of my favorite superhero television shows that currently airs.  It tells the story of Oliver Queen (AKA the Green Arrow), a familiar comic book character that is given a very dark past on this series.  Today, we're sharing two separate creations of the Arrow's lair, or the Arrowcave (it should be noted that Oliver himself was against this name).  Though they are built by two different builders, each interpretation gives some of the iconic appearances of the secret lair.  Check out both of these MOC's, the first created by superhero builder Tim Lydy, followed by Brickwielder's version.

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here

Honk Honk. . .Mreow Mreow!

*Rubs hands together*  Let the cat puns begin. . .  With the recent release of the collectible Batman Movie figures, clawing their way up my list of my favorite comic minifigs, a little-known character was included in the bunch:  Catman.  This minifigure is not just another variant of a Batman suit - he's actually a individual character from the DC comics.  His character does have a history, but I don't think too many people are familiar with him.  Tim Lydy, the creator of this mobile, says it purrfectly:  "Catman should be taken seriously...that is unless you want to be all clawed up."  Jokes aside, check out this wonderful Catmobile to help Catman get away from dogs. . .

Behold The Batcave!

This MOC is Bruce Wayne levels of commitment! Check out this truly epic Batcave from builder 莫古 (Chak hei Mok). The scale is impressive of course, and the level of detail is stunning, from the multiple bat-vehicles, to the choice of suits and the tiered construction to the complex geology, it's a feast for the eyes. But what I really love is the attention to detail in the lighting. It's all scale lit and looks absolutely cinematic.
