I wouldn’t classify myself as a diehard Marvel fan, there’s been quite a few of the movies I’ve skipped. It’s not that I had anything against them, I just wasn’t interested. I may be suffering a from a bit of super hero fatigue, but I’m also perfectly fine with it. Some of the characters just don’t grab me, but one that does, and one of the movies that absolutely nailed it, was the first Iron Man. While I wasn’t a big comic reader as a kid, I was a Spiderman and Iron Man fan, and I’ll admit I was really skeptical when they announced it. But I loved it, still do, so this excellent sculpture of Iron Man by Aaron Brick Designer instantly had my attention.
You can almost hear AC/DC playing the Star Wars theme when you see this latest creation by Zane Houston. Apparently there's a Millennium Falcon contest on TBB, and it's generating all sorts of cool stuff. But what I like about this in particular, besides the clever mash up, is how well it reflects the styles of both genres. As if Tony were Corellian or something. Would that make Pepper a Princess?
Tony Stark certainly has no shortage of suits, both three piece and Iron Man suits. One he uses for guest appearances at charity auctions and being a playboy on the town, the other he uses when he needs to look business-like. I don't know if this MOC by John Toulouse has every single Iron Man minifigure that has ever been made, but it certainly looks like it (even the micro-fig!). It also has some fun surprises on the back side, very cool.
If there's one thing I get a kick out of seeing every time, it's gotta be 1:1 scale movie props recreated in LEGO bricks. This skin-tight Iron Man gauntlet by Milan Sekiz features plenty of detail crammed in a very limited space that also accommodates flexibility. Having said that, I now have two serious questions: May I please wear it for Halloween and does it run on a miniature arc reactor or simple CR1025 batteries?
POW! WHAM-O! Two of your favorite Avengers have been brought to life with Tyler's creative character build technique! The remarkable recreation of these classic characters is well represented with amazing facial and body detailing. It's easy to tell that a main focus in these guys is enabling them to be posed. I personally would love to see a stop motion film using these two to recreate the great sequence in Captain America: Civil War! Whose side are you on?!
There's lots to be excited about with the premier of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Who IS this Ultron guy? Will our Heroes be victorious? What kind of outfits will Black Widow be wearing? And this: The Hulkbuster Mech Suit! Tankm has created a highly detailed, fully poseable, and kick-arse version of Tony's ultimate armor. Check out his photostream for more nifty shots.
