Even as overrun with crime as Gotham is (seriously, even with Batman on the case, there's crime everywhere all the time!), every once in a while you just need to stop and rock out. Thanks to builder rsmbricks we get to see what exactly that looks like, and it looks awesome! I don't know what they're playing, but they're certainly rockin'.
This is a little high concept, but very cool (and hey, it's Batman). The overall shape here represents a flower vase. In the vase itself is several scenes of Batman and Robin taking time off with some distractions. Above that is Gotham, with it's classic city graphics. The outstretched hands represent the people of Gotham, calling out for Batman. And the "flowers" are obviously bat signals. A pretty stunning piece by Vincent's LEGO Creation.
The centerpiece of Tim Lydy's Forms of Gotham collection, Bruce Wayne's alter ego, the crimefighting legend, Batman. Like the other figures in the collection, Bats stands on a base representative of his place in Gotham lore, namely where his fate was sealed, crime alley. This is where young Bruce witnessed the murder of his parents, and was changed forever.
One of the things I look forward to at BrickCon every year (at least every year I get to go) is seeing Brickbaron's over-the-top MOCs in person. It seems every one of his creations out does the last, and the stakes just continue to grow. This latest Batman inspired MOC is jaw-dropping in every aspect. The bold, bright colors and clean lines make this look like an illustration from a distance, leaping right off the page of a comic book. But the architecture is the unsung hero of this MOC, just check out that art deco theater, it's gorgeous. I could prattle on and on, but pictures speak louder than words (and there's more pictures if you click through).
The latest figure in Tim Lydy's Forms of Gotham collection is The Riddler, Batman's quizzically narcissistic adversary. As with all of the characters from this series, he stands on a base that reflects his place in the Gotham lore, in this case his signature question mark. He's also adorned with question marks skillfully modified from official LEGO stickers.
Gotham's notorious crime lord Oswald Cobblepot, AKA Penguin, has been plaguing Batman's efforts to rid the city of crime since his first appearance in 1941. This version by Tim Lydy looks the business, and captures his slimy, infamous persona perfectly. Another in his series of brilliant Forms of Gotham collection.
