Brick Show’s Top 10 Marvel-Inspired LEGO MOCs!

Every now and then, we feature a top 10 Brick List that showcases the best, LEGO creations out there, and even those that we wish to see in the future. For this week, we would like to share our selection of the best Marvel-inspired LEGO MOCs, thanks to the efforts of our Brick List researcher and narrator James Hicks. In no particular order, this is our take on the best Marvel-themed MOCs around.

WATCH: 10 AMAZING LEGO MARVEL CREATIONS

 

#10  – X-Men Sentinel by Henry Pinto

Sentinel unleashed!!! #legosentinel #lego

If you recall, the Sentinel has been the mechanical bane of the X-Men for as long as they can remember. When the X-Men TV series took off in the 1990s, it even started the season by paying tribute to these technological atrocities. This brick-built version of the walking behemoth was perfectly captured by Australian builder Henry Pinto using 7.5 kilograms of LEGO bricks just in time for the Sydney Brick Show in April last year.

 

#9 – Spiderman vs the Sinister Six by Tim Lydy

Spider-Man vs. The Sinister Six

Tim’s MOC captures the apparent frustration of the web crawler as he tries to save everyone on this construction site, against the unholy allegiance of super-powered villains collectively called as the Sinister Six. It’s just a terrible lot to be caught in.

 

#8 – Ghost Rider by Dennis Qiu

MOC - Ghost Rider

This is by far THE best LEGO Ghost Rider MOC that we have ever seen for a while. Dennis managed to recreate the horrifyingly cool atmosphere that surrounds this Marvel hero from hell using mostly LEGO technic parts for the motorcycle build, and Bionicle pieces for the Ghost Rider himself. Dennis also underscored the Rider’s terrifying presence by adding plenty of flame elements around it.

 

#7 – Baby Groot by Tyler

I am Groot

Of course, our very own Tyler Clites also makes it to our Top 10 Marvel-inspired LEGO creations, with his own version of the adorable Baby Groot as seen in the first Guardians of the Galaxy Film. This fun version of Baby Groot highlights Tyler’s impressive building techniques as he captures the looks of Baby Groot dancing to the tune of the Jackson 5.

 

#6 – The X-Men Mansion by Glen Bricker

Mansion with figs

cerebro and observation deck

Glen Bricker lives up to his name by building a modest looking LEGO version of the famed X-Men Mansion. On the outside, there seems to be nothing special about it, but once you turn it around, then the Mansion reveals its inner working in all of its modular glory. The build itself is layered and I love the many possibilities that its modular design can offer.  Glen has also included the iconic Danger Room at the bottom of the Mansion.

 

#5 – She-Hulk and Iron Man Team-up by Ben Cossy

She-Hulk and Iron Man Team up

This MOC is inspired by Superior Iron Man #1 comic. The build cleverly portrays Magneto as he ‘lifts’ the vehicles around and throws them towards She-Hulk. Ben uses several transparent rods to hold the vehicles in place, giving the impression that they are suspended in mid-air. I also like the painstaking details that Ben added to the pavement using a handful of circular gray plates and studs.

 

#4 – Marvel Superhero Battle by Johnny Walker

DSC_0060

With so many things going on in this MOC, it’s kind of hard to decide where to start first. We have Ice Man, Doctor Octopus, Iron Man, and a host of Marvel superhero legends battling it out in front of a humble comic book store. It features several fight scenes among the heroes and baddies of Marvel such as the Green Goblin vs Spider-Man, Captain America going on a free fall, Ice Man joining the fray, Rogue jumping into action, and Iron Fist ready to take a swing with his destructive knuckles among many others.

 

#3 – Spider-Man vs Sandman by Thorsten Bonsch

Spider-Man vs. Sandman

Thornsten’s MOC seems to look like it leaped from a comic book page. Spider-Man seems to get more than what he bargained for when he confronts Sandman and his intimidating sand creation. The building techniques used in creating the ‘sand hand’ gives a seamless effect throughout the build. Throw in a terrified crowd of minifigs, and you have one action packed scene straight from the comics.

 

#2 – X-Men Phoenix by Alex S

LEGO - Marvel/SuperHeroes - Phoenix heats up...

This Marvel creation is based on the original Dark Phoenix Saga published in 1980. We see the Jean Gray’s minifigure as it is engulfed in flames. Alex made very good use of various red flame pieces and lighting techniques to create that mesmerizing effect of showing that breaking point in Jean’s psyche. It is a very impressive build that seems to come alive as a set.

 

#1 – LEGO Avengers Tower by DownUnder Bricks

This MOC by Australian YouTuber and LEGO aficionado that goes by the name DownUnder Bricks, was put on display during last year’s Brickvention in Australia. The level of detail on this MOC starting with the pond and garden beds outside the Avengers HQ, and even Tony Stark’s bar and lounge, is absolutely impressive.

This 1,500 Piece LEGO UCS-Style Milano MOC is of Galactic Proportions!

What defines a superhero? Is it the clothes he wears, the gadgets that he wields, the awesome mix tape that he plays, or the sweet, sleek ride that he takes pride on? If you have a band of heroes as big the Guardians of the Galaxy, then it wouldn’t hurt to have a bit of them all. Throw in some neat character builds, a retro music player and a 1,500-piece, LEGO UCS style Milano and you’re all set.

Yes, you heard it right. Our resident master builder is back with another GOTG-inspired, jaw-dropping build that will make any LEGO Ultimate Collector Series set pale in comparison. Admittedly, we wish LEGO could have done a better design with their reboot of the Milano as seen in the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Milano vs The Abilisk (76081) set. However, we just feel that the official LEGO sets did not capture the magnificence of this ship as portrayed in Marvel’s cinematic universe. In fact, this second iteration of the famed spaceship is noticeable smaller than its predecessor as seen in The Milano Spaceship Rescue (76021) set released in 2014. So with a healthy amount of discontent, Tyler is back with another build that pays tribute to the Milano, and at 1,500 pieces, it is pretty closer to the real thing.

Tyler’s latest creation boasts of a UCS-type version of the Milano that comes with various play features even at a minifig scale. It roughly measures 2-feet wide from one wing tip to the other, and 1-foot long from the front all the way to the back engine. It has a cockpit that opens using a canopy piece used in the Milano vs the Abilisk set, and it is actually big enough to fit in three minifigures. Its huge wings feature 4 flexible panels at the end that can be posed at varied angles.

The back of this Milano also features tons of details. Starting with the engine, the ship features a textured and faceted surface, with a prominent orange, gray, and blue color scheme. What I find nice about the tail part of Tyler’s Milano MOC is how he was able to create pairs of articulated engines of sorts, very similar to how we saw them in the Milano, as it fly and maneuver in the film.

Perhaps the best part of Tyler’s Milano UCS MOC is the inclusion of an interior. Yes, this Milano has play features cleverly concealed – you simply remove the top portion to have access to the cool, fun details inside.

It sports two compartments, the one being a sort of meeting room just behind the cockpit area where you can find Baby Groot and Rocket. Perhaps a bit of a pep talk from the surrogate dad? Anyways, the last part of the compartment is a kind of bunker where our heroes can rest. It uses the same dark orange pieces as seen in the cockpit seats. Finally, this Milano MOC even comes with a stand for display purposes, and a full range of GOTG minifigures.

As typical of Tyler, he shares several building techniques as he explains the features of his MOC. Here’s Tyler with more details on how he built this very impressive LEGO UCS-style Milano MOC.

If you are impressed by Tyler’s creations as much as we are, be sure to check out his other GOTG builds such as his character figures and Star-Lord’s Classic Walkman.

 

 

Is This How the LEGO Star Wars Han Solo Sets Will Look?

Since the release of the first, highly anticipated official teaser trailer of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in April, many LEGO Star Wars fans (including us here at Brick Show) couldn’t help but wonder what particular sets LEGO has in the works for this 8th instalment in the Star Wars saga. We gave our own two cents, so to speak, with our take on seven possible LEGO Star Wars: The Last Jedi sets that we want to see, based on the film’s official teaser trailer.

WATCH: LEGO STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI SETS THAT WE WANT TO SEE!

The Last Jedi is slated to hit theaters this December, and shortly right after that, five months to be exact, the second of Lucasfilm’s spin-off/anthology films following Rogue One, will make its theatrical debut. We already know that Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, is now in production with actor Alden Ehrenreich taking the role of the younger version of the coolest rogue in the galaxy. There has been very little information about the film other than the official announcement of its cast, and a (very) limited tour of the Han Solo production set led by Warwick Davis as part of their Force for Change campaign.

However, this time around, we may now have more details about the Han Solo anthology film other than the actors and their production setup. Thanks to Bothan spies from Star Wars News Net, we now have a look on some possible vehicles and mode of transport that will be used in Han Solo. SWNN claims to have taken hold of some concept art images used in the film when it was still coded as Project Red Cup. Red Cup if you recall, is a pun on the red plastic cups manufactured by a company named as, as you may have guessed, Solo. According to SWNN, they found an eBay listing that shows “multiple brand new concept art images featuring ship designs and a sketch of Han Solo’s costume from the movie”. The said eBay posting was taken down from the site, but not without SWNN saving some of those images. Take a look.

Based on these images, we can glean four possible, Han Solo ships that may well translate into the next wave of LEGO Star Wars sets dedicated to the film. The first three images suggest a kind of Speeder Bike common to several sets such found in LEGO Star Wars Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike (75532), Bounty Hunter Speeder Bike Battle Pack (75167), and Ezra’s Speeder Bike (75090).

 

 

The second and third concept art clearly shows a kind of transport vehicle both used by Resistance and Imperial forces as seen with the Imperial Troop Transport (75078) and Resistance Troop Transporter (75140) sets. The concept art for this Han Solo transport vehicle features a walking platform for several Imperial Stormtroopers, and seems to designed for land or terrestrial transport. It also hints on vertical launching capabilities as the wings can be folded upwards.

 

The last concept art is the only image that suggests of a typical Star Wars ship capable of intergalactic travel. It is quite an intriguing design which sports a U-Wing kind of look similar to what is seen in the Rebel U-Wing Fighter (75155). The over-all look of the ship seems to point out on the possibility that the prominent, wing-like structure attached to its sides may well act like auxiliary boosters of some sorts similar to the functionalities of the hyperdrive ring seen in the Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive (75191) set.

Curiously, the eBay posting of these concept arts did not include Han Solo’s iconic vehicle that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. There was no hint of the Millennium Falcon among these sketches which makes you wonder what is the real score between the younger Solo and his beloved ship.

Will the Millenium Falcon make an appearance in Han Solo: A Star Wars Story?

 

Bear in mind that these images are early concept arts, and since Han Solo: A Star Wars Story is still in production, there are so many things that can change in the course of the film’s development. Nevertheless, it is quite interesting to think of these possibilities and if we will eventually see these sets translated into actual LEGO builds.

So what do you think brick fans? Do you like what you see in these Han Solo concept arts? Do you think these ships will eventually be made into actual LEGO sets? Share us your thoughts in the comments below or join in the discussions in our Facebook page.

 

Han Solo: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters on May 28, 2018.

Put Your Game Face On and Go Full Throttle With These New LEGO Juniors Cars 3 Sets.

Lightning McQueen is back and is off to prove that he still has the ‘ka-chow’ on the racing track once Disney Pixar’s Cars 3 speed its way to theaters in June. Last month, LEGO gave us a glimpse on what to expect from McQueen’s latest racing adventure when official images of the LEGO Juniors Cars 3 box art was revealed. This time, we can now have a closer look at these sets, with more official images and complete product descriptions that provide a hint at what happens to McQueen as he gets pushed back from the race track.

Though LEGO opted to release these sets under the LEGO Juniors theme which caters to younger builders ages 4 to 7, these sets offer several play features and elements that older LEGO fans will enjoy. One that I particularly find interesting, and the largest among the Cars 3 sets, is the Thunder Hollow Crazy 8 Race (10744). Furthermore, as I was told, the pieces that come with the Cars 3 sets are all printed which offers a better choice over stickers, considering that the sets are intended mostly for preschool kids.  If you recall, LEGO once released a series of sets based on Disney Pixar’s Cars (2006) and Cars 2 (2011) films. It offered more than 20 themed sets depicting several scenes found in the first two instalments of the movie franchise. I’m not quite sure if they took off among LEGO fans when they were released back in 2011, but they offered plenty of nice builds that look very close to how the original characters appeared in the films.

The LEGO Juniors Cars 3 sets are now available online both at shop.LEGO.com and Amazon

Official Images of the LEGO Star Wars 2017 Summer Sets Finally Released!

It seems like forever since we saw them way back during this year’s New York Toy Fair, but thankfully, we can see them once again through gleaming eyes as the official images for this summer’s wave of LEGO Star Wars sets have been finally released.

Get Ready for Star-Lord’s Brick-Built Awesome Mixtape #2 With This Ultra-realistic LEGO Walkman MOC.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 blasts its way into the local box office with a whopping $56 million during its Friday opening – and let me tell you, it’s absolutely worth every dollar in the cinema! If you haven’t seen the film yet, then you’re missing out on all the fun, made even better with the hard rockin’ tune of Star-Lord’s cool selection of songs in his Awesome Mixtape #2. Before we rushed into the cinemas this Friday, our resident master builder, Tyler Clites, showed us his 8 GOTG character builds that will make even the highly verbose Drax the Destroyer lost for words.

As it seems, it’s kind of hard to brush off the GOTG mania that Tyler even took it one step further. If you think that his LEGO GOTG character MOCs were awesome, wait until you see his brick-built, ultra-realistic Star-Lord Walkman Player.

From its scale and color scheme and even down to its buttons and interface, everything about it is a faithful representation of Quill’s iconic player. Tyler even managed to include some play features to his Walkman MOC such as an opening deck, a cassette tape that follows the same design of Quill’s Awesome Mixtape #2, and a wearable headset made out Technic connectors and actual LEGO tubing. Here’s Tyler with more on his LEGO Walkman MOC.

 

Now, only if Tyler can grant our wish of coming up with a Zune player MOC… 🙂 Stay tuned for more awesome builds from Tyler only here at the Brick Show!
