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.
Sometimes unconventional construction leads to spectacular results. Take this mosaic by builder Ultron32 for instance, a pretty large percentage of the parts used here are held in place by friction only. And while that may not be great for gravity on occasion, I think you’ll agree it’s pretty excellent for capturing a likeness.
It’s hard to describe the impact of this man. His imagination and talent brought forth a tsunami of creativity and escapism to generations of people. From the early days of the fledgling comic book company Marvel to the behemoth of the Marvel cinematic universe, he is one of the handful of people that were the start of it all. His influence was the spark for so many creative people now, and will be for the foreseeable future. From young artists learning to draw right now, to aspiring filmmakers, to artists working in other mediums, like bricks. Builder vincentkiew has crafted this fitting tribute to an incredible man, Stan Lee.
Fun fact: I worked on Spiderman 2. Not so fun fact: I spent most of the time working on a single shot that was when this guy showed up and some metal panels got pulled off the wall, blink and you missed it. Doctor Octopus, depicted here by vitreolum, is one of those villains that everyone knows, but no one really “knows”, you know? He’s actually a pretty complex character, who just happens to be a mad scientist with mechanical appendages hell bent on proving his genius while smashing Spiderman.
Brickatecture returns, unveiling his brand new wearable Star-Lord / Peter Quill helmet after 3 months of hard work. This model is 100% LEGO, 100% wearable, and 100% awesome. The helmet itself barely seems LEGO, especially with all the fine hair detailing that went into this model. All of the time and parts that went into this creation sure seems to have paid off! Make sure to follow Brickatecture for more amazing life size LEGO replicas!
Brickatecture MOC Industries is back with another fantastic LEGO superheroes model, which was completed just in time for Halloween! Man is now combining LEGO and Symbiote to make this scary realistic Venom mask made 100% from LEGO elements! “This LEGO Venom Helmet is fully wearable and features a working puppet jaw (the helmet talks when you talk). It took 3 weeks to build and features about 1000 pieces.” Not only is the mask insanely cool on its own, but the builder can even wear it and operate the jaw to make Venom talk at the same time! Ridiculously cool.
I am now hungry for Tater Tots. You’re welcome.
