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.
An adversary of the legendary Superman, Metallo is a Kryptonite-powered cyborg. This build is a menacing representation (almost Terminator-like) of the infamous character, designed by Shawn Snyder. So many light gray elements are used to perfection in this build, creating sharp looking teeth and machine muscles! Those complex arms and neck area are my favorite well-designed aspects of this character. This character has made several on screen appearances, most recently on the CW's Supergirl. Beware -- his heart is not very warm. . .at least in the way you'd like.
I saw BvS opening day, and it was pretty disappointing. But then again I always thought the concept was a bit silly, or I wouldn't have made my own version. But that doesn't mean I don't like the characters any less, and I certainly dig this MOC by cid1943. The split screen effect here with daylight Metropolis and the man of steel on one side and dark Gotham and the dark knight on the other is super effective.
Not being totally steeped in comics as a youth means I do get to enjoy one perk, continual surprises. Today I learned about the inspiration of this MOC of Kandor, the capital city of Krypton. It was shrunk and preserved by Brainiac and eventually recovered by Superman and kept in the Fortress of Solitude. Now it's a beautiful LEGO sculpture by Ken Robichaud.
BrickNerd Studios is extremely happy to announce our latest project is online, Batman Vs Superman. This was a ton of work but also a ton of fun. I'd like to thank everyone that helped make this a reality. Please watch and share!
I'm looking forward to attending DesignerCon 2014 this weekend. I'll be displaying some MOCs and my contribution to the ComicBricks art show (if I can get it finished!). If you've never been to DesignerCon I strongly encourage you to come check out all the designer toys, art, apparel and loads of other way cool stuff.
I'm also super excited to be showing an exclusive preview of my new animated film, Batman Vs Superman. See it at the show before you can download it! The sets from the film will also be on display. I'll have some stickers and if you're really nice a handful of Nerdly printed bricks. Come down to the Pasadena Convention Center this weekend and I'll see you there!
I'd also like to send a HUGE shoutout to fabulous Paul Lee for doing the artwork for the poster, it's phenomenal!
