Quite possibly the most popular female comic villain (it really depends on who you ask, and comic book fans are a spirited and passionate group) and certainly the most popular female comic villain cosplay is Harley Quinn. One trip to San Diego Comic Con and you’ll see them everywhere (Nerdly even has a pic with one!) Builder Paddy Bricksplitter decided to take a stab at a smaller articulated version of her using parts and techniques recently in use. All I can say is NAILED IT!
*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. . .
Your friendly neighborhood LEGO builder Vitreolum, a reputable character builder, recently created something rather strange. . .Steven Strange. "It's Doctor, actually." Right, sorry -- Doctor Steven Strange. Please don't zap me to another dimension. The latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Doctor Strange film was a very intriguing film that added some of the craziness the movies needed. This model here depicts the iconic character's classic look in contrast to Benedict Cumberbatch's updated movie version. The builder utilizes an interesting detailed piece to act as the Eye of Agamotto, Mr. Strange's (I meant doctor) iconic necklace that may or may not contain an Infinity Stone. Does this inspire you to try building him yourself? Stranger Things have happened!
After an eventful week at San Diego Comic Con, you'd think I'd be all "super hero'd out", but I don't think that could ever happen. And while I'm actually camping the next couple days I'll still be winding down from SDCC for at least a week. So thankfully nobu_tary is there to help me make the transition back to civilian life with just a little dose of Batman goodness.
With some big, expensive releases in recent months -- Ferris Wheels, Helicarriers and Tumblers, oh my! -- I've found some comfort and, well, joy in the "smaller" sets, and in particular the licensed ones.Read More
