San Diego Comic-Con is now at full stride with so much to see on the LEGO side of things. Following LEGO’s official reveal of one of its Comic-Con exclusives, we now have some pretty cool images of the LEGO Superheroes BrickHeadz live at the SDCC courtesy of Allen Tran of The Brick Fan, and Toronto Comics Arts Festival (TCAF) founder Christopher Butcher.

These limited edition SDCC LEGO BrickHeadz sets are the first among others scheduled to be released sometime next year. For its initial salvo, LEGO came up with brick-built figures of DC’s Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and the Joker, including Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain America, and Iron Man which are very much similar to Funko’s highly popular bobble head vinyl figures. Since it’s a SDCC exclusive, everything about it feels absolutely special – from its packaging with the iconic Comic-Con logo, to its printed tile with #LEGOSDCC.

This Finding Dory Lego Build Is A Promising One

‘Finding Dory LEGO Build by Nunki-psi and BuildFiend

Thirteen years ago, Disney and Pixar introduced to us what could be the most famous of all sea creatures ever rendered in CGI. ‘Finding Nemo’ was hailed not just for good, family values that it offered but more so on the technical feats that Pixar accomplished during its time. Set in the colorful underwater world of corals, squids, turtles, and sharks (remember the oath: ‘fish are friends, not food.’), Finding Nemo has set a milestone in the computer aided animation.

This year, a long overdue sequel is now slated to hit the big screen and this time, the one missing might prove to be a little bit difficult to find. ‘Finding Dory‘ is Pixar Animation Studios latest 3D computer-animated comedy adventure released by Walter Disney Pictures.

Following the timeline of the original 2003 hit movie ‘Finding Nemo’, Dory, the forgetful but ever reliable Blue Tang fish, suddenly recovers her childhood memories. With the help of her friends, Nemo and Marlin, they set off to find the ‘Jewel of Monterey’ with the hopes of reuniting Dory with her family.

To help out in the search, LEGO Ideas contributors BuildFiend and Nunki-psi, came up with their replica of our colorful threesome sea friends. With 228 supporters and a lead time of 263 days, the duo hopes to garner the 10,000 nods of approval from other LEGO supporters in order for their creation to be noticed and hopefully produced by LEGO. Their original creation includes:

  • Nemo with stand on a coral reef vignette (and a little shrimp!)
  • Marlin with stands on a coral reef vignette (and a transparent jellyfish!)
  • Dory with stands on a coral reef vignette (and Squishy!)

All builds are playable with each having a nice display piece. All of the characters’ fins (yes, even Nemo’s ‘lucky fin’) and eyes are moveable and poseable, including Marlin’s mouth. With a total brick count of 611 pieces, their proposed Finding Dory build is a pretty great compliment for the upcoming movie. Check out the rest their photos below.

Check Out This Fun Micro-Scale LEGO Disneyland MOC on LEGO Ideas

Nowadays LEGO seems to be into micro-sizing things that it finds worthy of attention. Even with its own theme sets, LEGO will throw in a micro-scale or two – such as the replica of a mini sub in The Lost City of Atlantis, or the Phantom ship in the Star Wars collection. Nick Carlierti, a certified brick fan, pays tribute to his love for theme park fun with his own version of a micro-scale LEGO Disneyland MOC project submitted on LEGO Ideas.

It’s amazing how these micro-scale sets are actually recognizable as the locations they’re trying to copy. With such few LEGO pieces, Nick’s attention to detail is pretty awesome. We hope to see his creation gets the support that it deserves from LEGO. Once it gets the needed 10,000 votes, then it’s up to the toy company to consider it for production. The only difficulty perhaps might be securing the rights to actually produce the set and we won’t find out unless the set gets the thumbs up from the LEGO jury.

For now, check out this cool animation of Nick’s micro-scale LEGO Disneyland MOC. Want it? Support it on LEGO Ideas!
